Nordstrom kicked off its first pop-up shop series last week, bringing a selection of curated, French-inspired goods stateside. Only eight Nordstrom stores around the country were chosen for the "French Fling" installation, and lucky us, the Tysons Corner Center Nordstrom made the cut.

Designed by Rafael de Cárdenas of Rafael de Cárdenas/ARCHITECTURE AT LARGE to resemble a Parisian urban garden, each pop-up shop is stocked with a cool collection of exclusive and limited edition items picked by Olivia Kim, Nordstrom's director of creative projects. The roster of brands includes Repetto, Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Kenzo, Saint James, Maje, Venessa Arizaga, and Olympia Le-Tan. The shop will stick around from now till November 10, and some merchandise is available online.

Francophiles, are you ready to shop in a garden? Nordstrom sent over a time-lapse video of the creation of the shop, and some French Fling Pop-In pictures, which you'll find after the jump.
