Paris Fashion Week might be over (le sigh!), but our European love affair need not end. After gracing us with Brit boutique Topshop, Nordstrom's getting all Gallic (and keeping fidgety Francophiles in their seats) with the launch of its French-themed concept shop-in-shop at their Santa Monica location next Thursday.
The first in their Pop-In @ Nordstrom series, the "French Fling" shop opens October 10th and will stock exclusive merch from Parisian labels like A.P.C., Repetto, Maje, Olympia Le-Tan and LA's own Rodarte (yay, J'Aime tees!), chic home goods from French interior decor mecca Merci, and much more. The best part? The shop's also carrying vintage Chanel and Saint Laurent—well, when it was still YSL—bags and other limited edition pieces, so expect to drop beaucoup bucks.
Feelin' l'amour? Join the department store in fêting the French at their launch party next Saturday, October 12th at 3pm and RSVP here.
