As the mastermind behind every Pop-In @ Nordstrom—technically speaking, Olivia Kim hand-selected every item in our new, limited-time menswear shop: Heartbreakers Club. But because some might be daunted by the sheer volume of rare streetwear and historic menswear gems therein, we asked her to condense things down to a handful of cream-of-the-crop favorites.

Keep reading for a starter-set of exclusive and limited-edition menswear, from Heartbreakers Club curator Olivia Kim.

In the words of VFILES retail director Zachary Ching, “VFILES is a global fashion community—a destination where users can shop, explore and curate without inhibition.”

As open-ended and aspirational as that sounds, he’s still under-selling this New York-based brand’s multi-pronged web presence. (A) It’s a killer online shop, which Ching is in charge of—and which we’re excited to highlight at our new Pop-In @ Nordstrom. (B) It’s an online TV channel with a tongue-in-cheek take on fashion. (C) It’s a foundation for the arts, supporting under-the-radar designers. And (D) it’s a Tumblr-esque image-sharing platform frequented by a crème de la crème of creative-industry tastemakers.

Regarding that last item: We asked Ching to share with us a few favorite hashtag’d categories from his own prolific VFILES.com postings. Keep reading for a look at modern masks, Ching’s favorite photographer, and a new twist on the classics.

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. But if there’s ever been a Pop-In deserving of your full and unadulterated attention, it’s the one launching this Friday: Entitled Heartbreakers Club, it’s stocked to the rafters with all menswear, all the time.

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?).

Featuring (to name a few):
A.P.C. • Ebbets Field • Hood By Air • Krink • Levi’s Vintage Clothing
Mark McNairy • October’s Very Own • Patrik Ervell
Porter, Yoshida & Co. • Schott NYC • VFiles • & many more.
