    When it comes to great style, the last thing you ever want to do is forget Paris. From their chic, perfectly undone haircuts to their ability to make even a basic white-and-blue striped T-shirt look like it's couture, French women are undeniably, inexplicably, mind-bogglingly cool.

    But, we knew all of that already right? Aside from the obvious, unrelenting desire to blow all of our savings on a one-way ticket to Charles de Gaulle airport, thankfully, Nordstrom and its newest (although certainly not new to us) director of creative projects, Olivia Kim, has come up with a much less risky plan to satiate our Parisian needs. Kicking off today, the luxe mega store just launched the first in a series of themed "pop-in" shops, and this one is a full-fledged homage to all things French.

    Featuring an incredible roster of both French and American designers curated by Kim, including Olympia Le-Tan, Maison Kitsuné, Kenzo, Proenza Schouler, Venessa Arizaga, Saint James, Chatelles, Rodarte, and more, the collection's available both online and in several Nordstrom stores.

    Ahead, check out our favorite pieces from the range! Bon Voyage...
