Neiman Marcus Inc. is headed back to Wall Street. The Dallas-based luxury stalwart filed its long-awaited registration statement for an initial public offering Monday. Details are still vague, with no read on how many shares would be sold or at what price.
Reached by WWD Tuesday, the newly anointed 39-year-old designer, who will take the helm as executive creative director of the nearly $5 billion American accessories brand, said that he intends to call upon the 72-year-old brand’s heritage to inform its upcoming collections.
Who could be unmoved by a road trip across the heart of America? Certainly not Kim Jones, whose spring collection was an ode to the heartland — its preppies and hippies, its forest rangers and screen idols.
It was a long and — thank the fashion gods — strong resort. After nearly two months of resort appointments, presentations and runway shows, WWD distills the season's best trends in a three-part report.
And the prize for the coolest catwalk set of the week goes to @driesvannoten. Japanese floral artist Azuma Makoto created 20 floral arrangements caught in plinths of ice for the spring show. #PFW (📷: @zefashioninsider)
@gigihadid and @bellahadid are in power mode. From top models - like the Hadid sisters seen here at @fendi - to great collections, strength took many forms in Milan. Check out this week's issue for all things #MFW. (📷: @zefashioninsider)
#MFW Designer Inspirations: "A 'poster collection' that marks a radical turnaround for creativity: a collection of elements in predominantly white, no color that embodies, in block, all shades of the rainbow." - Tommaso Anfossi and Francesco Ferrari, @cote.official
Front row at @fendi: @elliegoulding was at the show, fresh off releasing the finale song for the latest Bridget Jones flick. "I grew up with Bridget Jones and it was exciting and fun to work on the song. It's a fun and amazing character and I can relate to her." - Goulding #MFW
#MFW Designer Inspirations: "An evocation of dreams, hopes and memories, like a bottle with a letter inside or a magic lamp that looks after your own desires." - Salvatore Piccione on @piccione.piccione's spring collection
