Nicole Richie — television star, author and designer — is releasing a fourth clothing line, this time in partnership with the mega-retailer Macy’s. Richie, our April FLARE cover girl, already runs a fashion empire, including the jewellery and accessories line House of Harlow 1960, her clothing line Winter Kate, and a Nicole Richie for QVC line.
The snappily titled “Nicole Richie for Impulse only at Macy’s” collection will be heavily inspired by the seventies. The capsule collection will be priced from $49 $149, and will feature 25-30 items for the “modern woman.” It will debut in mid-September in about 100 Macy’s locations, and expect a lot of prints, boho silhouettes, velvet and faux leathers. No impending American road trips? The collection will be available in Canada online at www.macys.com.
Coincidentally (or not), Macy’s is also one of Fashion Star’s buyers, the hit television series in which Richie judges and mentors. Can we expect some sort of television plug for the line then? Yes. — Christian Allaire
