For most of us, a trip to Neiman Marcus means one of two things: 1. Someone you’re shopping with wants to go in there and purchase something you probably can’t afford. 2. They’re having an epic sale that allows you to score an amazing Alice + Olivia dress or a perfect pair of Theory pants for next to nothing. Well, prepare yourselves because that is the case no more.
After some major remodeling and a conceptual overhaul of the once slightly stuffy-feeling contemporary department, CUSP has officially arrived and the result is enough to make any fashionista swoon. The in-store boutique, which now encompasses nearly half of the store’s second level, is an amazing one-stop shop for all the latest designers and trends at varying price points that won’t drain your savings with a single swipe. The easy-to-shop and clearly labeled designer sections are accompanied by bold new decor, funkified fitting rooms and an accessories section featuring jewelry, shoes and handbags all curated for the savviest of shoppers.
Along with carrying the traditional brands you always know you can find in Neiman Marcus, CUSP has brought some of the most popular contemporary designers’ ready-to-wear collections into the store. This includes Rachel Zoe, Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang and Philip Lim along with slightly smaller, more boutique-like vendors such as Monrow, Blue Life and local brand, R & R Surplus, from our favorite bar/boxing ring/clothing shop, The Duce. By bringing all these elements together, CUSP now caters to the modern girl on the go who likes to mix and match brands and trends for a totally unique look. Check out some photos of the new digs in our gallery below and be sure to venture into the store soon to see what you’ve been missing. Shopaholics beware, this store is our new addiction.
