POP MUSIC: Topshop Topman is set to take part in the latest edition of the Pop-In@Nordstrom series with a Brit Pop-In collection that aims to honor the country’s music heritage. The collection will launch on Feb. 13, and nods to the Sixties, Seventies and Nineties with reinterpreted themes of British retro, mod and rock. The shop will showcase classic British tailoring and sportswear styles with an exclusive rtw and accessories collection.
Topshop will offer men’s wear-inspired pieces, graphic T-shirts, flared jeans, jersey dresses, dance floor-friendly fabrications and beauty, while Topman will stock items such as knitted polo shirts reminiscent of Jarvis Cocker and Pulp, and tailored houndstooth and striped blazers named after bands such as Blur.
“The Brit Pop-In is focused on Brit classics that have everlasting style,” said Topshop’s creative director, Kate Phelan. The retailer tapped art director Dean Langley to capture the essence of the swinging Sixties and mod Seventies. The shop will feature a tiled motif of collection images, checkerboard flooring and reimagined look book images as gig posters.
The collection will be sold at eight Pop-In Nordstrom locations, in Seattle and Bellevue Square, WA; NorthPark Center, TX; San Francisco Center, CA; Tysons Corner Center, VA; Oakbrook, IL; Garden State Plaza, NJ and King of Prussia, PA. Launched in October 2013, Pop-In@Nordstrom is an ongoing series of themed pop-up shops that change every four-to-five weeks to offer a new shopping experience and exclusive merchandise, according to the store.
