Perhaps like us, you are a fan of Rihanna. In that case you have probably noticed she has been dropping new music lately including this banger with Mike Will, “Nothing Is Promised.” But did you notice that while promoting the jam on Instagram, she hit the dab in the club while wearing one of our hats?

The specific hat is by Terrible Records, our musical partner for Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil—the sun/swim shop curated by Olivia Kim running now until June 26. When you’re done turning up in the club and want to chill out at the beach, listen to Terrible’s custom playlist for the Pop-In below.

All adventures require a special blend of planning and luck. We’re lured by the idea of leaving some of it to chance, but there’s an objective at play, too … even if it’s simply to explore the unknown.
This season—with its road trips, beach days and sunshine expeditions—we feel especially adventurous. We plot and scheme to make the most of these few months, throwing a little caution to the summer wind with half-packed picnic baskets and some extra room in the luggage.
“We’ll buy fresh fruit at the farm stands.”

Then there are those who dance even closer to the edge, dashing off without booking a room or a return flight. Technology, of course, makes every bet a pretty safe one. So it goes; with device in hand, there’s always a safety net within our grasp.
But don’t we sometimes yearn for those inconvenient foldout maps and the rush of picking up a set of freshly developed photographs?

What’s going on back there? In coordination with Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil, this month’s sun/swim edition of our themed shop curated by VP of Creative Projects Olivia Kim, our stylists offer wisdom about the back/booty sides of four key women’s swimsuits.
The drop one-piece (seen above) has made a comeback and is the must-have suit of the season. It’s sexy while also providing coverage. The drop in back tends to minimize your lower half. This fit is also easily worn for a night out with shorts or a skirt.

Behind the colorful, detailed menswear of London brand Dent de Man are the stories of designer Alexis Temomanin. We’re excited to be carrying exclusive-to-Nordstrom styles from Dent de Man in Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil—our sun/swim shop curated by Olivia Kim—and spoke to Temomanin about his formative Ivory Coast childhood, entrée into the fashion world and being haunted by blue patterns.

Back in the ’90s, Malia Mills hated that shopping for swimwear was a scary experience for so many women. Since then she’s been slaying the fashion game with a mission to get past the stress zone and into the #hellyes zone.
With Malia Mills’ swim designs currently featured in Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil—our sun/swim shop curated by Olivia Kim—we caught up with the boss herself to talk about body image in the era of the Lenny Letter, intense ruffles and the importance of getting out there and having a margarita.
