Seattle-based Nordstrom has announced a partnership to launch TOPSHOP and TOPMAN starting with 14 Nordstrom stores across the country and on nordstrom.com beginning in September.
Nordstrom will become the only large US retailer to sell a broad assortment of the British fashion brands’ merchandise in-store and online. TOPSHOP and TOPMAN have flagship stores in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles (opening Spring 2013), and their own U.S. designated websites TOPSHOP.COM and TOPMAN.COM .
The TOPSHOP and TOPMAN departments at Nordstrom stores will include limited-edition pieces created especially for Nordstrom. An expanded merchandise selection will also be available on nordstrom.com.
Sir Philip Green said ”I believe TOPSHOP and TOPMAN offer the Nordstrom customer something very different and unique with our signature British fashion authority. 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. I admire what Pete and his team do at Nordstrom and I look forward to working with them to create an exciting and dynamic retail partnership.”
“TOPSHOP and TOPMAN are internationally renowned leaders in fashion and we are thrilled to start a relationship with them that we hope will grow and prosper over the years,” said Pete Nordstrom, president of merchandising for Nordstrom, Inc. “We think our customers are going to love their take on trend-led fashion at great prices.”
The Southcenter Nordstrom in Tukwila will be one of the 14 Nordstrom stores to carry the TOPSHOP and TOPMAN lines.
TOPSHOP currently has 319 stores in the UK, with a further 137 international franchises operating in 37 countries. Born in 1978, TOPMAN is a leader in high-street men’s fashion with 230 stores in Britain.
