FIRST LOOK: WINTER KATE
Nicole Richie wants you to dress like a '70s rock star this fall.
When Nicole Richie landed on the cover of NYLON back in 2007, she couldn’t help but admit, “I don’t have a clue why I’m famous, either.”
This story was published on March 29, 2010.
Three years later and it’s clear why she should be famous right now: Winter Kate.
The clothing line from the socialite-turned-reality TV star-turned-designer only just launched this spring, but it’s clear that she’s got a knack for making clothes that girls will want to wear.
In the fall ’10 collection, just her second for Winter Kate, Richie mines rock’n’roll icons like Stevie Nicks and Debbie Harry for a genre-spanning, era-crossing line. It’s both retro and modern, with floaty dresses and printed jackets that you’ll never want to put back in the closet.
In fact, if Winter Kate proves anything, it’s that Richie has no reason to worry about her status as a famous face. If only she could teach some other bold-named celebrity designers a thing or two about launching a clothing line.
