The Soundtrack of Heartbreak: Heartbreakers II by Pop-In@Nordstrom


Hey, player: Are you ready for a super-emotional listening experience?

Hopefully your answer is YES, in which case please allow us to present the soundtrack for our new Pop-In Shop: Heartbreakers II, a showcase of evolving menswear curated by our VP of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim. It’s the monthlong sequel to our first menswear Pop-In from 2014.

We asked designers and creative directors from Heartbreakers II brands to provide songs for a broken heart and songs for a heartbreaker. Every designer came correct.

The result is an extremely fresh mix of hollowed-out hip-hop, American easy listening, French rock, Afropop via the UK and Japanese versions of Western folk classics–chosen by brands including Études, Bedwin & the Heartbreakers, Maiden Noir, LONGJOURNEY, Kinfolk, Needles, Nikben, Stutterheim, XLARGE, Xander Zhou,  Tim Coppens and COTTWEILER.

Get into the official Heartbreakers II soundtrack below.
