Street Style: Sub Pop’s Silver Jubilee

Last Saturday, under beautiful blue skies, venerable Seattle record label Sup Pop celebrated 25 years in the biz with a free, all-ages festival in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood. The day-long event took over several city blocks, with continuous music on multiple stages, a convoy of food trucks and lots and lots of people.

The musical line-up showcased Sub Pop’s diversity—from the smooth hip-hop of Shabazz Palaces to the metal madness of METZ to label vets Mudhoney (who played atop the Space Needle on Friday to help kick off the weekend’s festivities).

Our very own Men’s Shop co-sponsored the whole shebang and set up a photo booth manned by ace photographer (and frequent Nordstrom collaborator) Robin Stein, to document the local style set. We also had some fresh new gear from Topshop for people to try on. Check out some of our favorite looks below.


Heavy Metal: Senior Features Writer, Mary O’Regan, celebrated her birthday (and the event) by repping some cool Topshop style, including this insane necklace.

Pretty Tough: Girly dresses get a serious dose of downtown cool with edgy accessories and street-wise attitude.

White Light, White Heat: Despite temps in the ’80s, this Topshop faux-leather jacket in pristine white was a major hit.

Leader of the Pack: We were also lucky enough to have Dee Dee, lead singer of all-girl group Dum Dum Girls, on hand to model some Topshop looks.

Check out more coverage from Sub Pop’s Silver Jubilee, including street-style shots and exclusive interviews (there’s one with Dee Dee) in the Men’s Shop.
