More About CUSP:
For the latest in luxe, you know there's no better place to shop than Neiman's, but the next time you stop in, step over to CUSP, the department store's contemporary outpost. Freestanding CUSP stores have already gained a steady following in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and DC, but the Northpark location is a little different. Situated on the first level of Neiman's, its rustic-meets-industrial space is a far cry from the sleek lines and bright lights the department store's known for. But just like Neiman's amazing mix of designers, CUSP brings together labels that are high (Foley + Corinna handbags, Elizabeth and James separates and Current/Elliot denim) and low (Havaiana flip-flops and Hanky Panky underpinnings). You might see a gryphon trench hanging beside Nanette Lepore skirts; the racks are laid out so trend pieces are all together, making outfit constructing as easy as pulling pieces that are just a few hangers apart. CUSP is also one of the only places to get both House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate, Nicole Richie's accessories and clothing line, as well as exclusive pieces from Diane von Furstenberg and Vera Wang's Lavender label. Since there's nothing more chic than mixing these edgy pieces with something classic, Neiman Marcus proper is just a few steps away. Get ahead of the curve.
