DALLAS, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Neiman Marcus, the Dallas-based premier luxury retailer, is proud to add one of Brazil's most beloved fashion and lifestyle brands, FARM Rio to its "New Names at Neiman's" edit, becoming the contemporary brand's first brick-and-mortar national retailer in the United States. FARM Rio started as a small stand in a fashion market in Rio de Janeiro in 1997 and has grown into one of the country's leading fashion and lifestyle brand, representing the city's vibrancy and liveliness on a global scale. The brand has launched at Neiman Marcus this spring in 31 doors as well as online.
Known for vibrant colors and playful patterns, each collection features more than 400 prints, all engineered by the brand's in-house design team, plus a striking array of trims that add character and visual movement. Sixty-two styles will be available at Neiman Marcus, featuring a playful mix of colors, textures and patterns.
"I wanted to capture the joyful energy and creative spirit of my native Rio de Janeiro, so I built FARM Rio to share this with the world," says Co-founder and Creative Director Katia Barros. "We use Brazilian elements as our inspiration and put our own spin on it, using textures and colors we've seen in nature and drawing on traditional motifs."
Not only is the brand committed to making beautiful clothing, but it is also committed to helping the environment. By partnering with the nonprofit One Tree Planted, an organization that aids in global reforestation, FARM Rio donates a tree to be planted in the Amazon rainforest with every purchase on the FARM Rio website, in stores and at authorized retailers like Neiman Marcus.
"FARM Rio is a free-spirited brand with bold and playful designs that we know customers will love," said Lisa Kazor, Senior Vice President, General Merchandising Manager, Women's Apparel, Neiman Marcus. "We were drawn to the brand not only by the beautiful patterns but also by its give back efforts."
In-store events are planned in March and April at Neiman Marcus Fashion Island, Neiman Marcus NorthPark, and Neiman Marcus Coral Gables to celebrate the launch.
