Arcadia has announced that its Topshop and Topman brands will be sold through American fashion retailer Nordstrom in 14 stores across the US and on Nordstrom.com from September 10th.
Nordstrom is one of America's leading fashion specialty retailers, with 231 US stores located in 31 states and 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 US-designated websites.
The brands' departments at Nordstrom will have mannequins, visual merchandising and store fixturing supplied from the UK, and high-profile locations within the men's and women's apparel areas. They will include limited-edition pieces created especially for Nordstrom.
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."
