Considering the recent collaborations that have characterized Olivia Kim’s Pop-In@Nordstrom series, you might get the impression she’s attempting stylistic diplomatic détente with those nations our current administration has willfully damaged relations with. Indeed, last month the program brought the best of Mexican fashion across the border; and now comes this natty collaboration with exalted German accessories purveyor MCM.
Available at select Nordstrom locations, the capsule collection features bags and small leather goods in the brand’s signature color palette of red, blue and green (the gold-plating is a luxe touch) – along with select leopard print items, for the wildly feline-inclined. But there’s a sporty side too, with MCM logo-clad boxing gloves and punching bag, as well as Wilson basketballs and footballs (just in time for the season, of course).
“I have been a long-time fan of MCM,” says Kim, Nordstrom VP of Creative Projects. “I love the timeless, yet modern and cool appeal of their pieces. It was incredible to dive into the brand’s archives and be given the opportunity to bring the world of MCM to life in our shops. MCM and Nordstrom are like-minded in offering product that is intended for everyone regardless of age, gender or lifestyle.”
Oh, and to add just the right amount of cheek to the proceedings, they shot a campaign for the collection with rapper-provocateur Slick Rick.
The Pop-In@Nordstrom Exclusive MCM Collection will be available through November 11.
