Olivia Palermo, the international street style star with a cult following, will launch her first collaboration with Nordstrom for their in-house brand Chelsea28 on Monday, February 8. A year in the making, this collaboration will produce four different collections: Spring, Summer, Fall and Holiday. Palermo, whose flawless style is coveted by a whopping 3.1 million Instagram followers, is the perfect partner for the retail giant. Palermo has had several other high profile collaborations in the past, including a collection of jewelry with BaubleBar and her Aquazzura x Oliva Palermo capsule shoe collection. Now, thanks to Nordstrom, you too can emulate Palermo’s enviable style.

The Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 line will feature “classic American sportswear staples and dresses” with pieces that are meant to mix and match–she calls these versatile separates “life pieces.” The prices range from $68-$448, and the 32-piece collection features signature prints and rich textured fabrics such as suede, silk and leather, as well as an assortment of premium denim pieces. The Spring collection is especially fun, including high rise denim culottes, a retro denim skirt, a four-button blazer and a wide leg jumpsuit.

“We wanted to create great separates that are elevated and could mix and match easily to create outfits women can wear all year,” said Palermo. “Versatility was an important goal–being able to wear one item in multiple ways so you always feel polished and put together. A well-cut navy pant can be restyled so many ways and will always be chic. The Military Vest or the Sleeveless Suede Trench can be worn as a vest or as a dress and are the perfect layering pieces, you can mix them with other pieces in your wardrobe to create or change looks throughout the year.”

Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 will be available online and at select Nordstrom locations nationwide, including Seattle’s own downtown Nordstrom store and the Bellevue Square location. Check out the gallery below for a sneak peek!
