Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes I.T: We collaborated with Hong Kong fashion collective I.T to bring brands izzue, :CHOCOOLATE, Mini Cream and Aape by A BATHING APE to the U.S. for the first time.

Bringing a Hong Kong phenomenon stateside for the first time ever isn’t easy. After months of planning, just when we thought everything was a go—our boat-load (literally) of high-low HK fashion got hung up in customs!

It was all worth it, though. In the words of Pop-In@Nordstrom curator Olivia Kim, “I.T is one of my favorite things about Hong Kong—aside from the food and frenetic energy. When I went to Hong Kong for the first time, I fell in love.”

We think you’ll love I.T, too. Shop online and at selected Nordstrom stores starting today—and keep reading to go behind the scenes at our Seattle photo shoot (to which the clothes arrived just in time).

What’s Up, Olivia: Wave On

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.

“Ettore Sottsass is my favorite designer and this is my favorite thing he has designed.”

There’s recycling (turning old paper into new paper, for example), and then there’s upcycling—taking one person’s garbage and transforming it into a new, improved and entirely different product.

Leading the way on the latter is Madrid-based ECOALF—a key part of Pop-In@Nordstrom: TMRW TGTHR. Founded by Javier Goyeneche as a way to improve the world for future generations (‘ALF’ is short for ‘Alfredo,’ his son), the brand has developed groundbreaking ways to turn humankind’s garbage into clothing, shoes and accessories that not only look amazing, but feel extremely high-end to the touch.

Keep reading for a closer look at the exclusive prints we developed in collaboration with ECOALF, videos about their innovative upycling methods, and a Q&A with the brand’s founder.

The four friends behind Public Supply have a passion for design, an ardent belief in keeping art and music in schools—and a simple method for taking the guesswork out of giving back:

1) Buy one of their USA-made notebooks (25% of profits benefit public schools).
2) Check the batch number on the back.
3) Go to their website and match your number to the specific classroom on the receiving end of your good deed.

Once there, you’ll find a precise breakdown of the supplies you helped fund (ranging from printer ink to sheet music to robotics kits). But the best part has to be the heartfelt words of gratitude typed up by each dedicated teacher, explaining the cognitive value of their new teaching tools and just how ecstatic his or her students will be.

Keep reading to see eight of our favorite thank-you notes—plus a Q&A with Public Supply cofounder Russell Daiber.
