Launched in 2010, the elegant and luxurious Thalé Blanc collection has become a high-end globally recognized accessory brand throughout Europe, the United States and beyond. After designing exquisite works for labels such as Gianfranco Ferré, Roberto Cavalli and Valentino, designer Deborah Sawaf was able to hone her craftsmanship skills and create deliciously stunning handbags and accessories that exude elegant glamour and breathe her love for art, culture and travel.


Thalé Blanc paints a picture of Sawaf's worldly experiences through its clutches, day bags and jewelry of treated exotic skins adorned with unique custom hardware ranging from tassels, leather knot handles and Swarovski crystals.  Sawaf blends concepts of international influence and combines modern technique with traditional artistry with each piece in her European brand. Passionately driven by art, her inspirations range from the 1920's to French Renaissance and Baroque periods, as well as from exotic lands with rich histories of textile and ornament.

Nordstrom Family on the Move

Two Nordstrom executive team members change roles.  Erik Nordstrom and Jamie Nordstrom, are exchanging roles to further strengthen the company's core commitment to improving the customer experience. Erik Nordstrom, formerly president of stores, will now be president of Nordstrom Direct. Jamie Nordstrom, formerly president of Nordstrom Direct, will now be president of stores. Erik will continue to sit on the Nordstrom Board of Directors.

Nordstrom is squarely focused on a customer strategy, serving customers the way they want to shop. Today, Nordstrom serves customers through distinct yet complementary businesses: Nordstrom stores, Nordstrom.com, Nordstrom Rack, Nordstromrack.com and HauteLook.

Erik was named a co-president of Nordstrom in 1995 and president of stores in 2000. Jamie was instrumental in the development of Nordstrom's singular inventory platform, leading that project prior to being named president of Nordstrom Direct in 2005. Together they have been integral to the company's growth and customer focused online experience that is recognized as the innovative leader in the industry.  Their strategic guidance, along with the rest of the executive team, helped develop and launch capabilities that integrated Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com including the store and online merchandising teams, buy online/pick up in stores, mobile POS, same-day delivery and free shipping/free returns. In addition, since 2000 Nordstrom has opened 46 full-line and 127 Rack stores, launched partnerships with retailers such as Topshop, minority investments in Bonobos and Peek...Aren't You Curious and completed the acquisition of HauteLook in 2011. More recently their leadership was instrumental in the development and launch of Nordstromrack.com and the company's expansion into Canada in 2014.
