Pop-In@Nordstrom, a series of themed pop-ups located at the retailer’s eight flagship locations, on Friday launched a Poketo shop based on the Los Angeles retailer whose philosophy is, “Art and Design for Your Every Day.” Other upcoming Pop-Ins include a Rag & Bone shop in August, which will include exclusive pieces, and a socially responsible shop in September.
Pop-In@Nordstrom is the brainchild of Olivia Kim, director of creative projects, who handpicks merchandise with price points spanning the high and low range. Kim was vice president of creative at Opening Ceremony before Nordstrom hired her last year. She doesn’t like to play it safe. “They’re about disrupting the space,” she said of the Pop-Ins.
