The Neiman Marcus 2009 Christmas Book was released today. I hope we're all on Santa's "good" list, because this collection of all things fashionable is simply amazing. If you've got people on your shopping list who are hard to shop for, picky, have discerning eyes, or just love luxury - this list will definitely point you in the right direction.
For men, I'm loving the John Hardy bracelets, the Cole Haan gloves, and the entire Dolce & Gabbana ski ensemble.
For women, the black and red Alexander McQueen dress is wildly wonderful, the Stella McCartney motorcycle jacket and dress makes for the perfect rock and roll chic appeal for any lucky lady, the Theory blazer and leggings is sleek and sultry for day or night, and of course - all of the glamourous gowns. As for jewels, I'm loving the serious statement pieces.
For the home, I love the glitz of L'Objet, the portable powerhouse of Tivoli Audio, and the collection of style and wonder with Dior's 60th anniversary book.
The indulgent section - wow wow wow. From a US$10,000 Baccarat vase, stunning watches and jewels, to the US$14,000 fur trim cashmere cape, to the most exquisite handbags - this is definitely the collection for dreamers.
I'm impressed with the selection - there really is something for everyone - with respect to both taste, function, style, and value.
If this book is any indication of the 2009 holiday season, it's sure to be merry!
