Nordstrom Trunk Club Collaborates with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ to Bring the Film’s Iconic Costumes to Life
CHICAGO – November 28, 2018 – In celebration of the new film, Mary Poppins Returns, Nordstrom Trunk Club and Academy Award-winning® costume designer Sandy Powell, hosted an event last night to unveil a curated series of modern-day looks, inspired by the film. Hosted at Nordstrom Trunk Club’s Los Angeles Clubhouse, guests enjoyed a live model presentation showcasing Sandy Powell’s curated looks for men and women, and perusing artifacts on display from the making of the film. The collection is available for a limited time, exclusively through Nordstrom Trunk Club, and coincides with the film’s release in theaters on December 19, 2018.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this reimagining of a classic Disney film to bring a modern take on the costumes – perfectly tailored, timeless, and elevated – to our customers,“ said Maggie Mee, head of merchandising at Nordstrom Trunk Club. “We understand the magical feeling that comes from finding the perfect outfit, helping people feel more confident and make even the most mundane task an extraordinary adventure.”
The curated women’s looks were created to emulate Mary Poppins’ signature style —chic with an eccentric twist—by incorporating demurely flirty pieces for the modern woman. For men, looks were inspired by Mary’s friend Jack and include classic casual pieces paired with flashes of color.
“I wanted to bring Mary Poppins’ prim and proper nature juxtaposed with a whimsical, eccentric spirit to life through the costumes,” said Sandy Powell. “The look of the movie and the clothes are elegant and refined, though never stuffy or stodgy, and include frivolous touches that pay homage to the 1930’s. We are happy to collaborate with Nordstrom Trunk Club to bring a modern-day twist on the looks from the movie to closets nationwide.”
Current Nordstrom Trunk Club customers can contact their stylist and request a Mary Poppins Returns Trunk to get the looks inspired by the film. As with all Trunks, the stylist will use the curation and categories as inspiration and will take feedback and direction from the shopper to choose pieces just for them.
