A bazaar in Nordstrom? Why not?
For the latest iteration of its New Concepts @ Nordstrom store, the retailer has assembled an assortment of independent brand gifts, as well as artisanal and novelty items.
Concept 015: Make It Bazaar gifts include ready-to-wear for men and women, accessories, household items and Christmas stockings. Freebies include vintage car-themed rugs, stone incense burners from the California desert, and a giant stuffed Bode pony. Other brands featured in the boutique, curated by Sam Lobban, senior vice president of designer and new concepts at Nordstrom, include Ashish x Sam, Eckhaus Latte, Schott x Grateful Dead, Socksss and The Skateroom. Prices range from $ 14 for a bar of Wary Meyers lemon verbena soap to $ 3,500 for Bode’s woolen pony.
“With the New Concepts platform, we are always trying to offer our customers something new, cool and unexpected,” Lobban said. “Our latest iteration, Concept 015: Make it Bazaar, features an eclectic mix of the best gifts and fashion items for the upcoming holiday season. This shop has something for everyone on your list.
The stores, at the Nordstrom Men’s Store in New York as well as its flagship store in Seattle and South Coast Plaza, NorthPark in Dallas and Pacific Center in Vancouver, will remain open until January 30.
Meanwhile, across the street in the Nordstrom flagship in New York, everything revolves around Moncler. Starting today, the Center Stage pop-up will be transformed into an exclusive, commercial golden chalet with reflective gold towers and ornate lighting fixtures featuring the French luxury brand’s largest global activation for the Matt Black collection.
The line for men, women and children offers innovative fabrics, clean silhouettes and a minimalist color palette, and the boutique will offer outerwear, ready-to-wear, accessories and shoes. Among the exclusives offered for women, the Tharon down hooded jacket, the Valras down vest and an exclusive sole color on the Carinne boot. For men, there are exclusive colors for the Jildaz down jacket and the Aptera vest.
“Just in time for the holiday season, we are delighted to welcome Moncler to Center Stage at Nordstrom NYC,” said Lobban. “We can’t wait for our customers to discover exclusive Moncler pieces for the whole family in this unique and immersive pop-up. The Moncler brand continues to be a favorite of Nordstrom customers with their innovative and imaginative designs.
In addition to New York, the Moncler boutique will also appear at South Coast Plaza, Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Mall of America in Minneapolis, Bellevue Square in Washington, and Pacific Center through December 5. It will also be available online.
