JW Anderson Pop-up Shop Debuts at Nordstrom

Just in time for New York Fashion Week, Nordstrom is rolling out a pop-up shop for the much sought-after JW Anderson collection.

The 256-square-foot pop up is the latest designer installment at the retailer’s New York City flagship near Columbus Circle. Through March 11, shoppers can find a smattering of ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes and other items from the London-based operation. Earlier this week JW Anderson drew back the curtains on another pop-up in Beijing, which blends elements from its flagships in London, Milan and Tokyo.

A giant JW Anderson Cornishware teapot — that appeared on the designer’s runway — will be the anchor piece on display in the pop-up shop on the New York store’s third floor. Instagrammable as the teapot is, it also is a wink at the Irish-born Anderson’s personal heritage. With last month’s JW Anderson menswear show in Milan, which featured predominantly pant-less models, he lived up to his reputation as being one of the most daring designers in fashion today.

Rickie De Sole, women’s fashion director at Nordstrom, said, “We’re thrilled to spotlight Jonathan Anderson’s talent with this energetic collection — including select Space exclusives — that turns beloved pieces upside down with a twist.”

The JW Anderson designs at Nordstrom are offered in blues and crisp whites, as well as neutrals and mint. The exclusive offerings, which are also available on the retailer’s e-commerce site, retail for up to $1,350 for a tote bag. There is a $190 scarf, a $220 baseball cap and a $990 small corner bag. One item that is certain to get a lot of attention is a $115 unmistakably phallic charm. As for whether Nordstrom had any reservations about that particular item, there was no comment.
