Reality wild child turned style icon, Nicole Richie, has set her sights on a new venture: jewelry. Richie’s new line, House of Harlow 1960, is named after her daughter and celebrates the period fashions of both the 60s and 70s. Think art deco meets bohemian chic.
The 27-year-old celebutante partnered with celebrity jeweler, Pascal Mouawad, to bring her vision to life, and the collection takes inspiration from her sought-after style. Using leather, silk strings, chains, rivets, gold plated metals and a jewel-toned color palette, the jewelry explores “every theme true to the bohemian look; from gypsy to tribal, flower child to edgy street wear,” according to a press release.
October’s InStyle Magazine features Nicole and her baubles, and in it she describes her jewelry philosophy:
“I don’t like anything tiny. I guess it would make more sense for me, but I’m drawn to large, eclectic pieces.”
Lucky for us, the price tag is not large or eclectic with a reasonable range of $30 – $250. We’re sure these well-designed, yet affordable, baubles will make her target audience of teens to 30-somethings loosen their purse strings – or dance on the ceiling (couldn’t resist).
But don’t look for House of Harlow in mass market outlets like Target or Kohls. The collection is only available at the famous LA boutique, Kitson, when it opens its new store in November. Not to worry, though. For those not living in la la land, you can shop Harlow online at www.shopkitson.com.
