Shop Your Favorite Korean Brands at Bloomingdale's Seoul-Inspired Pop-Up Shop
Bloomingdale's newest pop-up shop, Window Into Seoul, showcases more than 25 Korean brands with products that embody the trends and culture of South Korea's capital city.
In July we took you on a wild safari with Bloomingdale's Lion King-inspired pop-up shop, Style Kingdom. This fall, we're heading east to Seoul, South Korea. From beauty to fashion and music, South Korea has been at the forefront of setting global trends, and the retail giant is honoring the cultural hub by launching Window Into Seoul. To create an authentic experience, Bloomingdale's tapped Minya Oh, a Koreaphile also known as Miss Info, to curate a selection of Seoul-inspired goods from highly-coveted brands. From her buzz-worthy picks, you'll find more than 25 incredible Korean brands across fashion, beauty and home.
To capture the essence of South Korea's style capital, Minya placed a spotlight on 11 brands from W Concept, one of the largest fashion retailers in Korea. Known for discovering independent international fashion, W Concept brings a selection of their unique labels and styles to the pop-up shop. The fashion story continues with powerhouse brands frequently seen on today's biggest K-pop stars, including Andersson Bell and SJYP.
Beauty aficionados can explore a K-beauty playground with more than 50 products from Amorepacific, one of the world's largest cosmetics companies in South Korea. You'll find an array of sheet masks, nail stickers, serums, cleansers and more from the company's massive portfolio of brands.
Walking into the pop-up, you'll also see familiar faces in the form of Kakao Friends, a series of characters based on the emoticons from the Korean messaging app, KakaoTalk. This squad of lovable BFFs can be seen on stationery, pillows, phone accessories and more. Other shop treasures include Soohyang candles, Tone and Manner hand-made ceramic tableware and exclusive snack boxes from Peach Mart, a takeaway shop from Momofuku.
