Kate Moss models her 2007 Topshop collection
Nordstrom just sent out a press release informing the world that as of September 10, British high-street brand Topshop and Topman will be available in 14 stores across the country and online at Nordstrom.com. Admittedly, it's a bit of a strange partnership (right up there with Target and Neiman Marcus). Here's what Topshop founder Sir Philip Green has to say about it:
With new pieces being delivered from our design team on pretty much a weekly basis – the ability to buy fresh, must-have looks every time a customer visits is key to our brands’ point of difference.
So, basically, he doesn't have to open tons of new stores (there are currently only three US Topshop locations: New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas), and Nordstrom gets an influx of super-on-trend wares. Win-win. Click through for the list of lucky towns getting in on the action (* indicates TopMan won't be sold).
