After her successful launch of the House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line, Nicole Richie is expanding on her design prowess and chic retro jewelry creations to branch into a full line of apparel and footwear with a similar vintage yet classic aesthetic. The new line, created in partnership with brand owner and manufacturer Majestic Mills, is comprised of approximately 40 pieces: dresses – long and short, blouses, tunics, vests, bed jackets, kimono tops and more structured jackets, in vintage silk crepe and vintage silk chiffon, some with fringe and handcrafted embroidery or cotton macramé details. The collection is inspired by timeless prints and shapes; beautiful paisley and florals that have been vintage washed and some have been over-dyed for that classic feel.
Winter Kate – the middle names of Nicole’s daughter Harlow-features pieces that range from edgy: the little sexy leather jacket – to romantic: slip dresses and camisoles. The Spring 2010 collection reflects her love of ethereal flowing clothes: easy to wear, simple, yet romantic and feminine at the same time. They also reflect Nicole’s love of vintage and classic- with a modern ease that allows pieces like the bed jackets and kimonos or shells to be worn with jeans or cocktail dresses. They allow a woman to feel feminine, yet function freely. The dresses and blouses work perfectly for layering or worn alone for late spring warm weather.
Spring 2010 will also see the launch of House of Harlow 1960’s premiere shoe collection. The shoes range from rich skins to a more playful, bohemian collection of moccasins and sandals. There is great attention to detail and beautiful embellishments (bright beads, soft peacock feathers). The collection features sandals, wedges, platforms and high heels.
The collection will be available globally NOW.
I am really excited about this line, hearing about for years its finally here! Nicole Richie is one of my favorites to watch, fashion wise, and has a very unique style. I wish her the best of luck with this collection, which people do like, so yay. I think this is something Nicole is passionate about and its not about how much money I can make. And Ill be following her and posting as news comes along.
