Last week Nordstrom launched its latest designer collaboration: a Céline pop-up boutique curated by Olivia Kim, vice president of Creative Projects.
The newest installment of the Pop-In @ Nordstrom concept, designed with minimalist cream-colored shelving and overlapping green floor prints, is open to the public through May 29. It will then head up north to set up “shop” at the Nordstrom Pacific Center in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Fans of the Paris-based luxury house will enjoy a curated mix of ready-to-wear, jewelry, shoes and handbags from the Spring/Summer 2018 collection, including four items exclusive to Nordstrom.
Guests at last week’s private launch party got to snag a first look at these exclusives, which included classic leather Multikeyrings, Signature City Eye sunglasses — springtime-ready in baby blue — and a stunning pair of lace-up sneakers in green and white.
Prosecco cocktails and one-bite pieces of sushi were passed out as VIP customers and picture-perfect style bloggers ooh-ed and aah-ed over the most coveted exclusive of the evening: the Solo Clutch in tan lambskin.
Diehard Céline fans will no doubt want to add these pieces to their personal collections as the era of Phoebe Philo comes to an end.
After the preview party on Thursday, Ms. Kim and co-president Pete Nordstrom hosted an intimate dinner at Matt’s in the Market that included special guests Rowan Blanchard, Petra Collins and Gia Coppola.
