'Eclipse'-Inspired Clothing Line To Be Sold By Nordstrom!



It's that time of year again, "Twilight" fans. With "Eclipse" only two months away, Nordstrom's getting ready to release their second "Twilight"-themed clothing line. You'll remember that they first collaborated with Summit Entertainment when "New Moon" came out, and we exclusively posted "Twilight Fashion Week" coverage. The new "Eclipse" line will be available for preorder beginning May 15 , and in store and online purchasing will start June 5.

Unlike last year's line, which took advantage of the "Team Edward"/"Team Jacob" rivalry, this year Nordstrom is all about churning out a "head-to-toe" recreation of the outfits worn by Bella and Alice. This will include "fashion tops with lace trim, mini skirts, striped and floral dresses, skinny jeans, cardigans, and plaid jackets," with what we consider to be reasonable prices ranging from $30 to $58.

Nordstrom will also be selling exclusive cardboard cutouts of Edward, Bella, Jacob and Alice for $33, though we're sure you'll be seeing plenty of other versions available at places like Hot Topic and FYE. Another renewed partnership from last year is with Twilight Beauty, as Nordstrom will again be selling their "Twilight"-themed project.

And, again like last year, Nordstrom is planning to take part of special "Eclipse" events like giving away advance screenings to the films, having cast members visit their stores, and planning "Twilight" Takeover parties.

“Our partnership on last fall’s 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' gave us the opportunity to really connect with our teen customers and offer them unique and special experiences,” Laura Janney, Nordstrom's national merchandise manager, said in a press release. “We are so excited to introduce our second collection that allows customers and fans another way to show their love for the film.”

Are you excited for Nordstrom's new "Eclipse" line? Are you happy they will be recreating outfits instead of just selling graphic tees and other memorabilia?
