Nordstrom has partnered with Pangaia, a materials science company that makes ethically produced clothing, for its latest pop-up shop. Concept 016: Pangaia is the first physical expression of the brand in North America and will include men’s, women’s and children’s products. It will feature the brand’s 365 core collection, along with denim, Flwrdwn (which stands for Flowerdown, an ethical alternative to down that is material created from dried wildflowers) and an exclusive collaboration with buzzy footwear and apparel brand Vandythepink. Prices range from $35 to $395. Nordstrom worked closely with Pangaia to create an immersive shop rooted in the brand’s ‘high-tech naturalism.’ As such, it is climate positive, which was determined after measuring and offsetting its carbon footprint after accounting for employee commuting, material use, transport, electricity and heating. Pangaia’s products are also created with sustainable materials and methods. Beyond that, the colourful space, which is designed in a circular format, is intended to help shoppers learn about the technologies and material innovations used by the brand. The shops will be open through early May in 13 Nordstrom locations across the US and Canada. Pangaia product will also be available online.
