Neiman Marcus 'The Book': Thugs Are Hot!

Illustration for article titled Neiman Marcus The Book: Thugs Are Hot!

That new Neiman Marcus catalog we mentioned earlier has an accessories "story" called "Aiding and Abetting," in which a model pretends to be a cat burglar. Because, you know, crime is sexy. Plus, since the crap is so effing expensive, theft is pretty much the only way you can get it. (An aside: Do you think that someone was like, "Uh, but we can't use a black model for this shoot." And someone else was like, "Why not?") After the jump, the most well-accessorized "break-in" since 1952. Or 1999.

We looked for a footnote reading "no animals were harmed during this photoshoot" but there isn't one. Also: who knew leather alternatives were so damn pricey?

We had a yellow-eyed black cat like this when we were young. His name was Spooky, and he was gorgeously evil. He'd bite and scratch you if you pet him too much, and we loved him dearly. Also, we like these shoes.

What do you think is inside the safe? Diamonds? Cash? Pictures proving the lunar landing was staged?

This doesn't make sense. Those aren't jewels, they're ornaments for a chandelier, right? Right? Why would you want to filch those? Is this what rich people steal from each other?

Awww, I had a kitty named Spooky too when I was growing up. Mine was grey with grey eyes and liked to leave dead things, like frogs, on the stairs so they could be stepped on in the dark.

Also, are those the infamous Prada ombre shoes mentioned a few days ago? Cuuuuuuute.
