A Neiman Marcus Trend Report (scroll down for photos~ photos by notes from the Styleshack)


The butterflies are back at Neiman Marcus in the Somerset Collection.

After a brief hiatus, the iconic butterfly art installation suspended over the three-floor atrium has returned just in time for the Spring 2016 Trend Report.

We recently welcomed not only the butterflies, but the 40 plus clients, guests, and media partners invited for a comprehensive look at the key trends for women and men for Spring/Summer 2016. Attendees viewed lust-worthy fashions while sipping craft cocktails from Two James Spirits and nibbling couture canapés from Plum Market. “Name-dropped” designers shown were Marc Jacobs, Brunello Cucinelli, Stella McCartney, Celine, Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, Alice & Olivia, Hugo Boss, Etro, DVF, Fendi, Theory and Iro.

Parallel trends for her and him include Confident Reds: poppy, persimmon and pomegranate – coral and ripe tomato. Red is the original color of rule breakers and risk takers. And Denim Everything: America’s love affair with denim is a worldwide love affair. Patched, distressed, shredded – dark wash or acid wash. It’s happening from head to toe and everywhere in between.

Time to welcome the upcoming season of individuality, eclecticism, freshness, and spirit. It’s Spring 2016!

For Women

 The Wide-Leg Pant: Release the skinnies! Go wide for maximum stride. Thank Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall.

Bare Shoulders: Time to give spring the “cold shoulder” or the “one-shoulder” or the “off-the-shoulder.” It’s the art of the reveal!…

 Lace, Lace, Lace: Chantilly, guipure, or crochet – bohemian or beachy. Lace isn’t just for the boudoir anymore.

 High-Impact Earrings: Shoulder-dusting, statement-making. The bigger the better! If they’re the size of a dinner fork, they’re just big enough.

 Shoes that Wrap & Tie: Platforms, flatforms, espadrilles or wedges – we’re up for a little ankle appreciation.

 Embellished Bags: Decorated, beaded, appliqued or embroidered – highly adorned and highly adored!

 The Blazer Redefined: The variety on the scene proves there’s an option for every style, attitude and mood. It’s the topper du jour!

 Vivid Matte Lips: “Red my lips!” Try Chanel Rouge Allure “Pirate”. Definitely a red-hot hottie!

For Men

 Bold Jackets: Bright colors, brilliant patterns with texture and sheen. The male version of the blazer redefined.

 City Skaters: Cleaner – sparer – sharper. The sneaker gets sleeker.

Soft Tailoring: “Easy does it.” Sartorial meets sportswear. Think softer shoulders, easier trousers in neutral tonalities.

 The New Bomber: A baseball jacket, a varsity jacket, or a souvenir jacket. Whatever you call it, the new bomber is the “bomb.”

 Fresh Prints: Painterly prints – dots and check – flora and fauna. It’s male pattern boldness, and that goes double for STRIPES!

 Military Influences: Time to bring out those details [buttons, belts, camo and khaki] into “active duty.”

Are you ready for Spring? Neiman Marcus is. Please join us!
