Since many of you are fans of Nicole Richie’s style, you’ll be happy to know that she currently has a clothing line in the works–a contemporary women’s line called Winter Kate, after her daughter Harlow’s two middle names.
According to WWD, Winter Kate will be a 37 piece collection set to hit stores like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales in February of 2010.
The line will include “mostly tops, vests and bed jackets in colorful vintage-inspired silk, crepe and chiffon because these tops are a mainstay of Richie’s own wardrobe.” Long slip dresses, asymmetrical short dresses, tunics and a kimono-sleeved maxidress will also be included in the line.
As far as price points go, the line will wholesale for $35 for a top to $598 for a leather jacket and will be aimed at the same customer as her House of Harlow 1960 line which now includes shoes for spring:
“She is a woman like me”, said Nicole. “She does not look at labels; she knows how to mix and match. The pieces can be dressed up, made casual, but most importantly, they provide the wearer a means of self-expression and fun.”
According to Nicole, she drew inspiration for Winter Kate from her own closet:
“I probably wear the same two pairs of jeans every day as the background to a fabulous top,” she said. “Bed jackets are a staple of my wardrobe because they are a gorgeous way to give jeans and a white T-shirt a completely different look.”
Also key for spring dressing are “definitely a beautiful, fun slip dress in a great print and also a leather jacket to turn the romantic day dress into an edgy night-out outfit,” Richie said.
