Nordstrom To Expand TOPSHOP And TOPMAN Partnership To 28 Additional Stores This Fall Next phase of growth includes new markets, updated department design, and national social media campaign to promote expansion

SEATTLE, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Plans were announced today to expand Nordstrom's partnership with TOPSHOP and TOPMAN by adding 28 TOPSHOP departments and 8 TOPMAN departments across the country starting in late September 2013. The expansion will bring the total number of Nordstrom stores with TOPSHOP and TOPMAN to 42 and 18 respectively. In addition, Nordstrom plans a completely refreshed design for TOPSHOP and TOPMAN departments in new and existing stores.

Nordstrom is the only large U.S. retailer to sell a broad assortment of the British fashion brands' merchandise in-store and online at nordstrom.com. TOPSHOP and TOPMAN have flagship stores in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, and their own U.S. designated websites at TOPSHOP.com and TOPMAN.com.

TOPSHOP and TOPMAN merchandise will be available in key markets such as Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis, San Diego, Washington, D.C., Southern and Northern California, South Florida, as well as new downtown locations in Chicago and Seattle. Since launching its core offering in September 2012, Nordstrom has added TOPSHOP shoes and Make-Up in select stores and continues to expand the TOPMAN suiting offer which will be in over 30 additional stores by November.

Sir Philip Green commented: "I am excited about this next phase of the partnership between Nordstrom and TOPSHOP and TOPMAN.  The first nine months have been a steep learning curve for us all, and it has been great to work with Pete and his team on providing the Nordstrom customers with the very best of what we deliver as great British fashion brands.

"I always believed that Nordstrom's multi-channel presence was the decisive factor in partnering with them in the USA, and we are looking forward to the further expansion across so many great cities, and refining our presence within their stores and on-line.  Hopefully there will be even more to come!"

Pete Nordstrom commented: "We are very pleased with our TOPSHOP TOPMAN partnership and excited to expand and grow together.  Through this collaboration, we hoped to attract new customers to both our women's and men's apparel businesses and to learn to create newness and excitement in our stores and online. Through a lot of hard work and mutual effort, we have been able to measurably improve on these fronts.  Working with Sir Philip and the entire TOPSHOP TOPMAN team has been great.  They have been excellent partners."

As part of the expansion, Nordstrom and TOPSHOP TOPMAN will partner on a national campaign, with details to be released soon.

ABOUT TOPSHOP: Since it launched in 1964, TOPSHOP has become a major British style authority and one of fashion's biggest success stories. In 1994, a TOPSHOP flagship store was born, as the brand took over a 90,000 sq ft space at London Oxford Circus in the heart of the West End. It remains there today, and is considered the world's largest fashion store on the high street, attracting over 200,000 shoppers each week. In the USA there are flagship stores in New York and Chicago, and  Las Vegas  which opened in March 2012 within Fashion Show Mall.

TOPSHOP is the only high street brand to show on schedule at London Fashion Week, and has recently celebrated eleven years of sponsoring New Gen – supporting young British designers and giving them a platform to show within LFW and promote their collections to the international press.

A pioneer of design collaborations, TOPSHOP is also well know for nurturing of young talent, including Christopher Kane, Meadham Kirchoff, Hussein Chalayan, Richard Nicoll and Mary Kantranzou. In addition, the Boutique collection offers reworked future classics in luxurious fabrics with a focus on style rather than seasonal trends. All this sits alongside TOPSHOP's trend-driven mainline, which includes glamorous going out pieces, footwear, accessories and an extensive selection of denim and jewellery and TOPSHOP Make-Up.

TOPSHOP has 319 stores in the UK, with a further 137 international franchises operating in 37 countries.         

ABOUT TOPMAN: TOPMAN has earned its sartorial stripes with an unswerving, energetic approach to producing truly exciting high-street men's fashion.  Driving trends forward while shifting the way men approach shopping, the brand's attitude to creating brilliant, affordable and authoritative menswear is second to none. Born in 1978, with over 240 stores in Britain; almost every high street in the country boasts its very own slice of TOPMAN.  London's mega Oxford Circus flagship attracts 75,000 customers every week alone. The brand's transactional website TOPMAN.COM sees over an average of 800,000 visits per week and currently ships to over 100 countries across the globe.

TOPMAN has been supporting young British design talent for many years and currently sponsors both MAN and the British Fashion Council's NEWGEN MEN award as well as showing its stand-alone TOPMAN DESIGN collection during London Collections:Men.  MAN – which TOPMAN instigated with Lulu Kennedy of FashionEast in 2005 has been intrinsic in kick-starting London Collections:Men after securing and proving a huge success controversially on-schedule at London Fashion Week.  It soon became clear that there was a strong appetite and the talent to back it up for Menswear in London on a bigger scale – cue London Collections:Men now firmly set on global Menswear schedule in January and June each year.
