Nicole Richie is slowly taking over the fashion industry, y’all! WWD reports that the Fashion Star judge is expanding her already burgeoning style empire (which currently includes her accessories brand House of Harlow 1960 and clothing line Winter Kate) by designing a capsule collection for Macy’s. YUS. The line, called Nicole Richie for Impulse, will cater to Millenials (a.k.a. a term mostly Baby Boomers use for anyone between their teens and late ’20s) and hit 100 Macy’s stores and e-retail starting in mid-September. Nicole is well-known for bohemian chic meets cool ’60s mod girl street style, characterized by tons of bold prints and bright jewel tones. The 24-30 piece collection will be heavily influenced by Nicole’s personal style, but when it ACTUALLY came down to it, she said her biggest design inspiration was—GASP—music!
“Music is the driving force behind my inspiration,” she said. The collection “represents the many different layers of a modern woman. Women are wearing so many different hats these days. We are evolving. Not just working, but creating. This collection has a strong mix of masculine and feminine: printed chiffon mixed with faux leathers. I focused on the details, from the zipper pulls to the buttons.” Well THIS sounds interesting! If it’s anything like the previous Alberta Ferretti or Karl Lagerfeld Macy’s collections, we definitely need to be first in line at the Herald Square location on the day of the release. See you there!
