You might have noticed our previous Pop-In @ Nordstrom curated shops, featuring French curios, obscure Xmas gifts, and unexpected ways to jump-start your New Year.

Compiled by our director of creative projects, Olivia Kim, the shop will showcase streetwear designed by artists and DJs, exclusive collaborations with emerging designers, and the leather jacket that Marlon Brando made famous in 1953 (or was it the other way around?).

A.P.C. • Ebbets Field • Hood By Air • Krink • Levi’s Vintage Clothing
Mark McNairy • October’s Very Own • Patrik Ervell
