“Nordstrom is giving the brand one of the greatest platforms inthe history of Cross Colours,” said Carl Jones, Co-founder of Cross Colours. “This launch will be the first time we have the opportunity to showcase our full collection in one place – the fleece, the denim – and in the way that we would like to present it to our customers. We have an opportunity to create a true Cross Colours experience for our customers. For us, that’s everything.”
Pieces available for sale at the exhibit and online include hoodies, sweatpants, T-shirts, rugbys, hats and footwear ranging from $20-$88.
