Helmut Lang and Raf Simons @NordstromMen New Concepts pop-up on Thursday, May 2 -May 30
May 2 @ 8:00 am - May 30 @ 5:00 pm
Sam Lobban, VP of Men’s Fashion, will introduce his third New Concepts pop-up on Thursday, May 2. ‘Concept 003: printings.jp,’ is a collaboration with esteemed Japanese publishing house printings.jp, and features a curated selection of rare and collectible vintage pieces by prolific designers Helmut Lang and Raf Simons.
The exclusive offering includes a Raf Simons/David Bowie top from the 90s, a fishtail coat from his fall 2005 collection, a Helmut Lang painted denim jacket from 1996 – and many more special pieces. The limited pop-up shop will be available at Nordstrom Downtown Seattle, Nordstrom Men’s Store NYC, Nordstrom Pacific Centre in Vancouver, B.C. and at Nordstrom.com through May 30th.
As part of the pop-up, New Concepts @NordstromMen will exclusively launch printings.jp’s release of 1986-2005, a new two-volume digest detailing the work of Helmut Lang. The book follows the success of 1996-2001 / 2001-2006 which documented Raf Simons’ collections through his formative years. Both books pay tribute to two visionaries who changed the landscape of menswear forever.
