The Neiman Marcus Holiday Book is a Christmas gift in and of itself. And even if the priceless jewels or other extraordinary “wish list” items aren’t in your budget, that doesn’t mean they aren’t a whole lot of fun to look at. But long before the Neiman Marcus Holiday Book began earning a reputation for being the go-to holiday shopping guide for gazillionaires everywhere, it was filled with lots of beautiful clothes that any fashonista would be thrilled to ask Santa to slip beneath the tree.
Designer Akris Punto is one of the featured designers in the 2013 holiday book, and with very good reason. Punto has a flair for combining classic styles with pops of color, pattern or texture that are contemporary and fun. Punto’s collection for Neiman Marcus this holiday season is filled with dozens of pieces that can serve as classic staples in any wardrobe, such as perfectly fitted wool blazers, but then they’re given fun added touches such as detachable fur collars. These playful touches are found throughout the collection in knit or wool dresses or skirts that have been embellished with leather panels or with conservative houndstooth checked suit jackets that flare out into a flirty peplum at the bottom hemline beneath the waist. Treat yourself this holiday season and check out the inventive collection by Akris Punto in the Neiman Marcus Holiday Book
