KDH Exclusive: Nicole Richie Picks 10 Perfect Pieces For Haute Hamptonites From Her Fashion Brand~ House Of Harlow!

Designer, style star, mom of two, and daughter of Lionel~Nicole Richie.


Having you seen the hot new design competition show on TV called Fashion Star? KDH is loving it so far…It stars Nicole Richie, epic menswear designer John Varvatos and the surprisingly well-versed branding bombshell Jessica Simpson. KDH has always liked Nicole’s eclectic personal style which I would describe as “bohemian luxury”. She will take a vintage hippy sundress, slide on a metallic YSL sandal and finish the look off with a red Chanel bag casually slung across her chest. Nicole has launched two fashion brands in order to distill her unique look to her fans…

Here’s the scoop on the Winter Kate & House of Harlow 1960 brand:

The Winter Kate & House of Harlow 1960 companies were founded by Nicole Richie in 2009 in partnership with Majestic Mills (apparel) and Modern Vintage (accessories). Based in Montreal, Canada, both Majestic Mills and Modern Vintage are owned and operated by CEO Rick Cytrynbaum and his co-founder/ brother Brian Cytrynbaum.

As partners, the trio oversees the entire production process from start to finish.  With Nicole Richie as the Creative Director behind Winter Kate & House of Harlow 1960, she is involved in all facets of the brands’ decision-making process from design and fabric selection to branding and marketing.

The Winter Kate & House of Harlow 1960 brands have now evolved into a full-fledged collections, offering ready-to-wear, jewelry, eyewear, footwear, and handbags.  The Winter Kate collection ranges in price from $78 to $595, and House of Harlow 1960 footwear from $148 to $358.
