Is you fancy? If so, Elle brings word of precisely how Neiman Marcus is celebrating its centennial, beginning today:

When Neiman Marcus set up shop in downtown Dallas in 1907, they got women hooked on a new luxury shopping experience -- and now, the venerable retailer is rewarding their customers' loyalty with a slew of exclusive items as part of their ongoing 100-year anniversary celebration. Starting this week, Neiman Marcus stores across the country will offer merchandise designed especially for their centennial (and available only at their stores) by Hermès, Marni, Giorgio Armani, Marchesa, Nina Ricci, Prada, and dozens of others.

The items will bear an anniversary logo denoting their exclusive provenance -- Prada's pumps, for instance, have an embossed heel plate that reads "Prada for Neiman Marcus, 1907-2007" -- and have a silver butterfly tag to distinguish them from the store's other merchandise. Forget dinner for two -- this is the kind of anniversary celebration we could get used to.

Because who needs to eat? Clearly not the readers of Elle. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
