Nordstrom has just provided us with renderings of the ground-floor interior of its 230,000 square foot flagship in Vancouver.

The rendering of Nordstrom’s ground-floor women’s designer handbags department, above, shows shop-in-stores for brands including Céline, Saint Laurent Paris, Valentino andBalenciaga. Retail Insider’s William Connor took the photo, below, showing an in-store Delvauxinstallation, as well as a display for Chloé bags.

brand with bags costing into the thousands, available in the United States at Barneys New York.
