Neiman Marcus Teams Up With 3D Printing Company Shapeways on Holiday Collection

Meghan Blalock

As we’ve seen, 3D printing may or may not be the the future of the fashion industry. It’s already been seen on the runways of Paris, utilized by designers like Iris van Herpen, and worn by stars like Dita von Teese—and online 3D printing communities like Shapeways and MakerBot have followings that number into the millions. But now, 3D printing will come to the masses in way never before seen.

Neiman Marcus has just announced a new collaboration with 3D printing powerhouse Shapeways on a small capsule collection of 3D printed designs that are available starting today. The line is made up of two designs: a stainless steel sculpture designed by California-based sculptor Bathsheba Grossman ($395), and a sterling silver heart pendant—which can be monogrammed with two initials—floating inside a silver cage, the creation of Roger Pearce ($295).

As with all objects that are 3D printed, these pieces don’t exist until you order them, which means each one is totally one-of-a-kind. Once you place your order, the product is 3D printed and shipped from Shapeways’ Long Island facility. Check out the custom pieces below, then head to Neiman Marcus to shop them now!
