As you may know, Pop-In@Nordstrom x Opening Ceremony is the next evolution of our constantly changing store within a store, an experiment curated by VP of creative projects Olivia Kim. The shop is live now and includes menswear, womenswear and gifts.
For more on that story we direct you to this article in WWD. The venerable outlet comes correct with history and context.
Writer Sharon Edelson says this particular joining seemed inevitable, since Olivia was the first employee at Opening Ceremony back in 2002. She helped bring the now-iconic New York City store and brand to its current prominence, before joining Nordstrom in 2012.
Says OC co-founder Carol Lim about Olivia:
“When she moved to Nordstrom, the scope of [her job] seemed like a natural fit for Opening Ceremony. Nordstrom has been a longtime partner with the Opening Ceremony brand. It felt like a nice merging of the two companies and our relationships.”
Also in the article: Olivia mentions upcoming partnerships with Danish home brand Hay, the Italian Trade Commission and the return of the men’s streetwear/lifestyle Pop-In, Heartbreakers Part 2.
