Big Facts with Luka Sabbat

Luka Sabbat has taken the fashion world by storm these past few years as a model, stylist, tastemaker and all-around creative person. So it wasn’t enough for us to simply shoot photos for our men’s trend campaign. We had to sit down with the man and have a proper conversation.

Read our interview to find out his views on the title “influencer” (often used to describe him), what he’s listening to, his emerging brand/not-brand Hot Mess and where he sees himself at 40 years old—which still seems light years away when you’re 19.

Artist Kindah Khalidy Takes Her Color Palettes from Old Ladies’ Outfits and Buffed Graffiti

Vibrant, abstract symbols cover the surfaces on which San Franciscan artist Kindah Khalidy works. Although their meaning isn’t objectively discernible, they are undeniably cheery and upbeat. Khalidy paints on almost any blank canvas: clothes, walls, wrapping paper, furniture. Her optimistic, pop-art palette plays off the starkness of its backdrop.

One of the adorable faces of our Anniversary Sale, we caught up with Khalidy to chat about her charming art, her style and her shopping habits.

What do you love about Nordstrom’s “One-of-a-Kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

It’s a fun time to finally grab those items I’ve been eyeing for a while. We’re pretty lucky with Bay Area weather in the sense that you can wear clothes for all seasons, year round. Cue the sweaters.

Talking About Great Danes and Good Man Brand with Pro Football Star Russell Wilson

Quarterbacks aren’t supposed to seem oddly clear-headed during what is technically called a “scramble.” But with Russell Wilson, what is really a run for his life often ends up looking like a jog through the park. We’re blown away by his abilities and especially his grace under fire.

As one of the faces of our Anniversary Sale, Wilson talked with us about football, philanthropy, and his modern men’s clothing venture Good Man Brand.

What do you love about the Nordstrom “One-of-a-Kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

Shopping at Nordstrom is always fun and easy. Who doesn’t love finding the newest styles of the season at sale prices? This year I am especially excited for the Anniversary Sale at Nordstrom since Good Man Brand, a new fashion lifestyle brand that I am a co-founder of, will be featured.  What an honor for Good Man Brand to have been selected by the Nordstrom buyers to be a part of this event alongside some the best and biggest brands in the world. We think it will help us take a huge step towards setting up our brand for long term success.

Uncompromising Style with Actor and Singer Taye Diggs

He’s known as an incredibly versatile actor, but Taye Diggs can also sing with the best of the stars on Broadway, which is probably why he’s so busy—he’s just too dang talented. He told us when you’re constantly booked, you don’t have time to shop at a bunch of different stores. Makes sense. We’re honored to be his one-stop destination.

What do you love about the Nordstrom “one-of-a-kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

Well, I just like to shop, period. Right now, it’s the changing seasons. So, loading up on all the fall stuff is exciting.

Hana Mae Lee Talks About Hilarious Horror, Her Recluse Ambitions and Rad Style

You definitely know her as Lilly from Pitch Perfect (1, 2 and now 3), but Hana Mae Lee is branching out into more (and more vocal) roles. The star on the rise with ingenue eyes brings her distinctly darling style to all her projects—three to come this year alone.

We caught up with Lee to talk about what she shops, her signature hair style and her favorite movie moments.

What do you love about Nordstrom’s “one-of-a-kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

I love the variety. From Le Creuset to MM6 Maison Margiela, so your boyfriend cooks while you’re looking good! Everyone loves a sale, but a great sale is where it’s at. #Heard

What do you usually shop during the sale?

I splurge on diptyque Feu de Bois candles.

How would you describe your personal style?

Dark. Oversized. Rad.

On the Red Carpet at the 2017 Tony Awards with Nordstrom

Radio City Music Hall reverberated with the talent, energy and humor of Broadway last night, during the 71st Annual Tony Awards®. Not only did the stars turn up to fete their peers, but they showed up to showcase their love for the stage and dramatic arts as a national treasure.

Host Kevin Spacey began the evening with a homage to the show nominees that included cameo appearances by Stephen Colbert and Whoopi Goldberg. The House of Cards star, himself a Tony-award winner (for Best Featured Actor in a Play in 1991’s Lost in Yonkers), assumed several personas throughout the night, including President Bill Clinton and television host Johnny Carson.

If there was one big winner this year, it was the musical Dear Evan Hansen, which claimed six of the evening’s awards, including those for best book, best featured actress, best actor and best musical. Its young star Ben Platt, just 23 years old, gave the night’s most moving speech in which he said, “To all young people watching at home, don’t waste any time trying to be like anybody else because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful.” That message of individuality applied equally to the spirited fashion adopted by those in attendance.
