Last week, the retail giant announced that it would be stocking up on some of the coolest steampunk and retro items, including an entire shelf of retro steampunk clothing.
The shelves will go on sale starting today, September 9, with a limited number of items on offer, and will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom stores.
This includes the first-ever Steampunk Collection, featuring two new designs from the company’s designers, James B. Glynn and Joe L. Jones, as well as a limited edition, hand-numbered Steampunk T-Shirt from designer David P. Miller.
While these items aren’t official merchandise, they represent the brand’s vision for the future.
Nordstrom, which has a strong history in steampunk, will be the first major retailer in the world to stock this collection, and is also set to open a new store in Tokyo later this year.
The company is also partnering with Japanese artist and illustrator Yoshiyuki Sugita, whose work has been used in many of the aforementioned products.
“We hope this will be a platform for the collaboration of our talented artists to bring more inspiration to the steampunk community,” said Nordstrom spokeswoman Kate Gebhart.
“This collaboration will showcase some of our finest creations, and we look forward to seeing the next batch of steampunk inspired designs come to market.”
A spokesperson for Steampunk Group, a group representing some of America’s largest retailers, told Breitbart News that it plans to “continue to work closely with the Nordstrom team and the team behind this collection.”
The spokesperson said that the group’s goal is to “drive the movement forward by offering innovative and unique products and services that support the Steampunk community and all of its diverse fans.”
Nordstrom’s announcement follows another big news story about the brand this week, when a company spokesperson said the retailer plans to expand its online store by launching a “freemium” service, allowing customers to choose between a full-price or discounted store.
Nordystrom is a leader in online sales and is considered a leader by many online retailers in terms of how well its services work, as it offers a wide range of features to help customers make the most of their shopping experience, such as a shopping cart that allows shoppers to customize their shopping cart to fit their preferences.
While the Nordystricks online store is a major step forward for the brand, it comes at a time when many other retailers are stepping up to the plate.
As we’ve previously reported, Amazon has launched its own store, which will be stocked with thousands of steampunky-inspired items.
The Amazon Prime membership, which offers a variety of perks such as unlimited free shipping and free returns, also lets customers save up to 70 percent off the cost of Amazon products on a monthly basis.
Last week, Nordstrom also announced that its online retail store will launch a “limited edition” line of the brand name branded furniture.
The brand will also be stocking some of its other furniture brands including a “new collection of vintage vintage-inspired pieces” and an exclusive collection of items by American furniture artist Steve Henson.
The full-sized “Nordystrom Home Deco” furniture will be available starting today at Nordystrans home decor stores and will go up for sale on September 23, and the full-size “Norgans Steampunk” furniture from the same company will go live on September 28, with prices starting at $1,199.
This will mark the first time that a Nordstrom home décor line has been made available for the home decor market.
