Stylist Picks Straight Out of Hong Kong

Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes I.T: We collaborated with Hong Kong fashion collective I.T to bring women’s brands izzue, :CHOCOOLATE and Mini Cream to the U.S. for the first time.

Our latest Olivia Kim-curated Pop-In Shop is packed to the rafters with borrowed-from-the-boys varsity jackets, black-on-black biker vibes—and animated friends from another galaxy (yes, really!).

To help us weigh our options, we asked stylist Ashley Helvey (a talented artist, tea connoisseur and all-around gem of a human being) to talk us through her favorites, after having surveyed every look up-close and personal on set. Keep reading to see her six favorite ensembles from I.T Hong Kong.

Note: Inventory at each of our monthly Pop-In Shops is extremely limited. If the item you’re after has sold out online, try contacting a brick-and-mortar Pop-In at one of eight selected Nordstrom stores.

L: “Can’t beat the teddy bear sleeves on this jacket—vintage Patagonia chic!” [Shop This Look]
R: “I was channeling a ’70s ceramicist/painter vibe here. Love the white sneakers with black socks to bring it back.” [Shop This Look]

L: “izzue is my favorite I.T line. I basically want everything in the collection, so it was difficult to pick my favorites. I decided to pick my wardrobe staple: a white button-up. You can wear it to any occasion and feel sophisticated.” [Shop This Look]
R: “This sweater blends two of my favorite materials, wool and chiffon, in an elegant but casual way. The tulip skirt goes with just about anything, from sporty to swanky, depending on the shoe.” [Shop This Look]

Mini Cream
L: “I wanted this last week, partly as a Halloween costume! [The ‘ears’ fold down for other occasions.] I loved hearing Mini Cream’s story of cartoon characters coming to Earth and turning black from pollution. Great conversation starter, no?” [Shop This Look]
R: “My favorite thing about these sweatpants is the drop-crotch fit—making them wearable to yoga or cool enough for a club.” [Shop This Look]
