Topshop has hinted around a lot at its plans for the West Coast, specifically Los Angeles. We know that they have a store going in at The Grove (countdown: eight months until its scheduled 2013 opening), but there has been talk of a pop-up to test the waters sooner than that.
Turns out Topshop had another secret up its trendy sleeve. The British fast fashion chain has partnered with Nordstrom on Topshop-themed departments, set to open in Nordstrom stores September 10th. Only 14 Nordstroms nationwide were chosen, and two are in SoCal. The Irvine store at the Irvine Spectrum Center and the Costa Mesa store at South Coast Plaza are among the lucky few. Nordstrom at the Irvine Spectrum Center will be getting both Topshop and Topman collections, while Nordstrom South Coast Plaza will only be stocked with Topshop. Also, these stores will feature exclusive items Topshop has designed specifically for Nordies. Road trip, anyone?
