They’re calling Union & Company.
The Nordstrom “New Concept” series is more than a collaboration. It’s a composition of ideas, placed upon the display of a renowned platform. To culminate this exciting launch, Nordstrom and Union threw a community block party in Manhattan last week.

What makes for a proper NYC block party? Head to @nordstrommen to find out. Tonight we celebrated the latest from #NewConcepts (a.k.a Concept 005: Union & Company) with a summer night to remember. Swipe to see more and check out the shop when it officially launches TOMORROW! 👏
For Union co-owner, Chris Gibbs, the block party served as a homecoming. Union first opened its doors in SoHo, NY three decades ago, in 1989. Gibbs was a part of the original team who worked in the Soho store and has remained with the brand, after taking over as co-owner, in 2008. He opened Union Tokyo in 2018. Concept 005: Union & Company is the first time the LA-based brand has linked with a national retailer.
“We’re bringing to Nordstrom an honest and earnest version of what Union is,” said Gibbs. “Streetwear has been an incubator for new ideas, and I take pride in Union being the store where we’ll go lengths of the Earth to find the next new brand.
Concept 005 further permeates modern fashion’s combination of high-end and streetwear.
“Union is a brand that stands for something,” said Nordstrom VP Men’s Fashion, Sam Lobban. “Everyone’s talking about streetwear’s influence on men’s fashion, and Union is the ultimate authority on that.
