TORONTO (September 17, 2021) – Pop-In@Nordstrom presents the world of Levi’s® through the lens of three inspired designers with a one-of-a-kind experience celebrating the brand’s heritage, sustainability and future-focused design.

“We are excited to partner with Levi’s® this fall for the latest iteration of Pop-In@Nordstrom,” says Olivia Kim, VP of Creative Projects and Home at Nordstrom. “I have long admired their strong brand heritage and we are proud to use this partnership as a platform for emerging, female-led brands like Collina Strada, Melody Ehsani, and Thompson Street Studio to express their distinct points of view by creating unique pieces that we know the Nordstrom customer will love.”
Collina Strada, Thompson Street Studio and Melody Eshani give their take on classic and vintage Levi’s®, each letting their own inspiration soar. For Collina Strada’s Hillary Taymour, sustainability and the reuse of garments already in circulation was a key aspect of the design process. For her collection, she reimagines vintage Levi’s® with a profusion of colors, patterns, and sequins all inspired by the streets of New York and the fearlessness of its occupants. Thompson Street Studio’s Kiva Motnyk let her materials inspire her, using denim scraps throughout her signature handmade patchwork to craft one-of-a-kind works of art for your wardrobe and your home. Melody Eshani found herself inspired by her husband Flea’s contagious smile, the practice of love, while also leaning into streetwear and her sense of humour. Together, their collections celebrate Levi’s® and showcase how denim is truly a canvas for endless possibilities.
Pop-In@Nordstrom x Levi’s® will also feature Levi’s® RED, a selection of reinvented classic styles made with sustainable fabrics and modern shapes. This collection will live alongside Levi’s® Authorized Vintage which includes hand selected styles that were tailored and revived giving customers reworked pieces from the past.

Launched in October 2013, Pop-In@Nordstrom is an ongoing series of themed pop-up shops that transition every four to six weeks to offer a new shopping experience and a batch of new, often exclusive merchandise. Pop-In takes two forms: a shop curated around a theme featuring brands across different product categories (fashion, beauty, lifestyle, home/garden, sports/outdoors, etc.), or a partnership with a single brand to bring “the world of” to customers.
Pop-In@Nordstrom was built on a monthly rotation to keep customers coming back to discover new brands, new merchandise and create a fun and compelling experience in stores and online. Each shop features a mix of hand-picked merchandise spanning the high/low price range, with price points often starting at $5.
Pop-In@Nordstrom was the first initiative from the Nordstrom Creative Projects team, under the direction of Olivia Kim (Vice President of Creative Projects). In her role, Kim focuses on creating energy, excitement, and inspiration throughout the retailer’s national locations. PopIn@Nordstrom partnerships have included: Aesop, Allbirds, Alexander Wang, Casper, Converse, Everlane, Gentle Monster, goop, Hanes, HAY, Liberty London’s Flowers of Liberty collection, Nike, Opening Ceremony, Poketo, rag & bone, The Museum of Modern Art’s MoMA Design Store, The North Face, Topshop/Topman, the U.S. debut of Hong Kong fashion collective I.T., VANS and Warby Parker.
