CHAMPAGNE WISHES: Talk about birthday greetings. Neiman Marcus is celebrating its 100th anniversary this fall, and has arranged for dozens of its best vendors to provide special merchandise for the occasion. Prada has produced about 20 items, ranging from shoes to accessories to ready-to-wear. And you can be sure they are exclusive: The handbags come with "Prada for Neiman Marcus 1907-2007" embossed or on a decorative tag, while the shoes bear a heel plate, a sole plate or other marking with the anniversary logo. Retail prices range from $295 for a belt to $8,990 for a crocodile clutch. Shoes start around $995 for sporty styles and go up to $4,500 for crocodile pumps. Some of these limited edition items will be in all stores while others will be in select locations. Whatever happened to saying it with flowers?

MISSONI'S NEW MAN: Expect to see more Missoni on the red carpet. The family-owned business is beefing up its celebrity services. After freelancing for almost 10 months, Edward O'Sullivan has joined the Italian brand as head of worldwide celebrity dressing and entertainment, a newly created position. For five years, O'Sullivan served at Polo Ralph Lauren as global senior director of celebrity dressing and entertainment, and during that time developed a rapport with Hollywood stars including Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Joy Bryant, Emmy Rossum, Kevin Costner, Patrick Dempsey and Jay-Z. At Missoni, O'Sullivan will be working in both New York and in L.A. Missoni also tapped Polo alum Meredith Keller as senior manager of celebrity dressing and entertainment.

CHANEL GALLERY: Gearing up for the opening next week of its Peter Marino-redesigned flagship at 400 North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Chanel has revealed the names of two additional artists who will be exhibited in the store. Work by photographer Alec Soth and Iranian-born painter Y.Z. Kami will get prominent play in the French brand's shopping temple, which is meant to look like a No.5 Perfume box. Other artists to be shown in the store include Francois-Xavier Lalanne, Peter Dayton, Jean-Michel Othoniel and Paola Pivi. Chanel is planning to celebrate the artists who collaborated on the store with a so-called "art party" in September.
