Our very own Olivia Kim is constantly on the run during Fashion Week, but she always manages to keep her cool. You all know what a style crush I have on Olivia, and today’s outfit is one I’m definitely going to copy! Her long, tuxedo-inspired coat is gorgeous, and pairing it with all-black Birkenstocks is inspired. Olivia loves mixing styles to create her own personal vibe, and she totally knocked this genre-bending look out of the park.
“Everyone knows I love a good tie-dye! This line is inspired by a group of friends’ surf trip to Costa Rica. (Also two of my fav things, surfing and Costa Rica!) They hand-wax each piece and it takes two to three hours. That is dedication!”
“We wanted to recognize all the different ways that being ‘socially responsible’ can be interpreted,” Pop-In@Nordstrom curator Olivia Kim said in reference to our latest limited-time shop: a collection of eco-friendly, upcycled, artisanal and community-focused goods titled TMRW TGTHR.
“If we can provide these organizations with a platform to tell their stories,” Kim continued, “I feel like we’re helping spread their purpose to a larger audience.”
One of the most inspiring stories we came across was that of Creative Growth, an art center in Oakland that serves adult artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities. Check out our visit to their campus in the video above, shop at selected stores for one-of-a-kind artworks by Creative Growth artists—and keep reading to learn about the four artists whose work we’re honored to showcase on a series of tote bags (free with any in-store Pop-In purchase).
Our Director of Creative Projects and Pop-In Shop curator Olivia Kim offers up daily inspiration, favorite products and things she’s super in love with right now.
“My good friends Pookie and Louisa just launched their brand, Trademark – I couldn’t be prouder! Their new storefront is at 95 Grand Street – if you are ever in NYC, this is a must visit! If not…you can always check them out online! It is inspired by India (which is one of my most favorite places the world!), and I have to say this is the freshest thing I have seen while in NYC for Fashion Week.”
