Luxury retailerNordstrom Inc.is partnering with British clothiers Topshop and Topman to sell the brands in 14 of its department stores, including two in Orange County.
Nordstrom will be the biggest U.S. retailer carrying a wide array of apparel and accessories from the fast-fashion retailer, which already has stand-alone stores in New York, Chicago and Las Vegas. Another is planned for the Grove shopping center in Los Angeles' Fairfax district this Christmas season. Topshop is the women's side of the brand, and Topman carries the men's merchandise.
Seattle-based Nordstrom will launch Topshop and Topman boutiques in select department stores Sept. 10 with some limited-edition items. A fuller selection will be available for sale on Nordstrom's website.
Two Orange County Nordstrom stores at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa and the Irvine Spectrum and two Northern California stores at Valley Fair in San Jose and the San Francisco Centre will carry the British brands.
Both Topshop and Topman, whose rivals include fast-fashion brands Zara and H&M, have slowly expanded in the U.S.
"I believe Topshop and Topman offer the Nordstrom customer something very different and unique with our signature British fashion authority," Topshop owner Sir Philip Green said in a statement.
