Welcome to Racked Philly, where we'll report on retail and fashion comings and goings around town. Seen a store open, close, or otherwise claim your attention? Hit the tipline, and we'll get right on it.
Giving you yet another fashion-fueled reason to brave the horrendous traffic on 76, the King of Prussia Mall will soon welcome Topshop and Topman as the British labels land at fourteen Nordstrom locations nationwide this fall.
KOP's Nordstrom department store—located within The Plaza—is among those Nordstrom locations selected for the partnership, which will make Nordstrom the only large American retailer to carry the UK labels.
A wide range of Topshop and Topman merchandise, including limited-edition pieces created especially for Nordstrom, will be displayed front and center within high-profile areas of the women's and men's apparel sections. Even sweeter, the department store's website will offer an expanded selection of fashions, supplementing the styles available in-store.
The labels' store fixtures, mannequins and visual merchandising will also make the trek across the pond, offering customers an experience akin to shopping in Topshop's London, New York, Chicago and Las Vegas flagships.
But don't race out the door just yet—the goods don't hit the racks and the Nordstrom website until Monday, September 10, 2012.
