VSL: Sponsored // Attention, Chicago! CUSP by Neiman’s has arrived!

When you feel “must” instead of “maybe,” and “stunning” instead of “stylish,” CUSP is there — and
the newest CUSP boutique, just opened on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, is offering 40 percent off on select merchandise.

Founded by Neiman Marcus in the fall of 2006, the cutting-edge store stays two steps ahead of the curve, providing an edited mix of glam clothes, chic shoes, fab bags, and swank luxury accessories. CUSP Water Tower Place is avant-garde and environmentally aware from the (recycled plastic carton) light fixtures on down: The Alkemi countertops are crafted from recycled post-industrial waste. The ceilings are constructed of reclaimed salvage wood, the columns of sustainable bamboo. (The wood-beam tables, handwoven chairs, and “anti-floral” centerpieces of natural wood branches and balsa wood rosettes are also eco-friendly. And the custom-made mannequins — by Ralph Pucci — are equally unique.) If you’re looking for pitch-perfect, no-guilt shopping this holiday season, pure pleasure is a click away — at CUSP.
