Prior to the outbreak, there was speculation that the company, which is behind Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Mytheresa, Horchow and Last Call, was the next retailer to file for bankruptcy because of its $4 billion in long-term debt. The COVID-19 pandemic has created an additional struggle for the retailer, as its stores have been closed for more than a month.
While Neiman Marcus has yet to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, if it does so it will follow several other fashion brands that have succumbed to the pressures of the pandemic in the last two months, including Los Angeles fashion label Bldwn, British retailer Debenhams, Elizabeth Arden Red Door spas and True Religion.
Here, WWD breaks down the specifics of Neiman Marcus’ potential bankruptcy, including the factors that are contributing to the filing and prospective buyers.
Has Neiman Marcus filed for bankruptcy?
The Neiman Marcus Group has not yet filed for bankruptcy.

The magazine has tapped Goldie Hawn, her daughter Kate Hudson and her granddaughter Rani Rose for the cover of the issue, marking the first time the three generations appear on a magazine cover together. This is also the first time People has featured three generations of a family on the special issue’s cover.
“The palpable joy of seeing this trio together made them the perfect choice for the 30th anniversary of our ‘Beautiful Issue,’” said People editor in chief Dan Wakeford. “These women illustrate what is important to us right now: positivity, kindness, laughter and family.”
The cover was photographed in early February in Los Angeles prior to the escalation of the coronavirus outbreak. The family has since begun separately self-isolating, with Hawn quarantining with her longtime partner Kurt Russell and Hudson with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa and her sons Ryder and Bing in Los Angeles.
In the issue, Hawn and Hudson talk about parenting, relationships and their close bond.
“My mom gave me the floor to be able to feel confident enough to go out and feel like my life could be my own,” Hudson said in the issue. “Mom was my
The mess started over the weekend when Fleming shared a link advertising the shirt — which features a flying Chinese take out box with bat wings and the words “No Thank You” on the box and its sleeves, along with an image of chopsticks and bat wings — on his personal Instagram. The shirt, called “bat fried rice,” priced at $60, was created by California-based artist Jess Sluder.
But the shirt — and Fleming’s willingness to share details on where to buy it — quickly caused a stir on social media. The backlash included critics accusing Lululemon of racism and using hashtags like #BoycottLululemon and #LululemonInsultsChina on Instagram and the Chinese platform Weibo.
Critics on social media slammed both Lululemon and artist Jess Sluder, who created the shirt and uses the Instagram handle @deadringer, of xenophobia.
The Canadian athletic-apparel retailer was quick to point out the T-shirt is not a Lululemon product and that Fleming was no longer a member of the Lululemon team. The retailer also immediately issued an apology.
