There's something utterly fascinating about Nicole Richie. Sure, she's Hollywood royalty, the poster child for L.A.'s signature boho-luxe style, and really gets the whole comedy thing (for proof, please consult Candidly Nicole). But it's her constant reinvention that we're committed to keeping tabs on. She's come a long way since The Simple Life.
Of course, nothing is more interesting than her ever-evolving style, whether in her red carpet choices or in House of Harlow 1960, her line of statement jewelry, oversized sunnies, and silk separates. Luckily, we had the chance to sit down with Richie and get a sneak peek of her latest project: The brand's first pop-up shop, opening this Friday at The Grove in L.A. and running through July 16. The occasion? A soft relaunch of the line to show how it has grown and matured.
You can expect all the hallmark pieces Richie told us are her favorites — silk camisoles, bed jackets, and her signature Chelsea sunglasses — plus in-store exclusives and brand-new inspirations, like home fragrances and daintier jewelry. After all, just like Richie's evolving personal style, her steadfast line has undergone a transformation of its own since its launch in 2009.
"As I grow and evolve and change, my eye does, too," Richie told us on Monday. "I’m hugely inspired by the ‘60s and ‘70s, and the collection tries to emulate that throughout each season, but I love challenging myself with different fabrics, different prints, even incorporating different fabrics in my jewelry."
Can't make it to L.A. for the pop-up? Don't fret, we have a special treat for you, too. To celebrate the new offerings from HOH, Richie did a fashion retrospective with us, discussing the looks that punctuated her personal style over the years, from the weird to the wonderful and everything in-between.
Ahead, Richie talks about 16 of the looks that defined her role as an L.A. fashion mainstay.
