The next evolution of our custom-curated Pop-In Shops is now live online and in selected stores. In stark contrast to our previous Pop-In, French Fling, which was a wistful homage to Gainsbourg ballads and Godard films, this one is more like a monstrously cool mash-up of a mad scientist’s laboratory and 1982 sci-fi epic Tron.
Olivia Kim, Nordstrom Director of Creative Projects and mastermind behind each new Pop-In Shop, compared her new creation to “rainbow sprinkles on a vanilla cake.” [Read her full interview on The Thread.] She was speaking metaphorically, of course—describing unique holiday gift ideas on a neutral backdrop. All we know is, with rare gems like brain-in-a-jar candles, Keith Haring skis, rap-themed coloring books and pink Everlast boxing gloves neatly situated amidst chain-link fence and neon lights—there’s no better place to shop for the junior CSIs, artsy skiers, notorious B.I.G. kids and female boxers on your list.
