We’ve all been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Nicole Richie‘s new collection for House of Harlow 1960, which debuted today at The Grove in its first ever pop-up shop. The shop is selling pieces of vintage furniture which were carefully selected by interior designer (and Nicole’s friend) Masha Gordon along with vintage pieces from Nicole herself. In addition to these, the House of Harlow line brings new clothing, sunglasses, candles, jewellery and introduces its first ever stationary brand.
Most pieces are available to view in the gallery or of course on the House of Harlow website where you can purchase them! Let me take you on an exclusive preview, featuring some of my favourite pieces!
Nicole has brought a new candle to her collection which is called “Flower Child,” illuminating scents of Fresh Greens, Violet Leaf, Indian Jasmine, Soft Lilac, Honey Rose, Sweet Cream, Petitgrain, and Vanilla Bean. This also comes in a set with two other unidentified candles. Both the candle and the sets are available in either black or white with gold decoration.
A surprising new addition to the HOH line is stationary, which I could not have predicted. Nicole has created two beautiful journals which come in black and cream, again with gold detail. There is also a set of 6 cards and envelopes which follow the same styling. Hopefully Nicole will expand her stationary collection in the future.
Going back to the original items from the brand, Nicole has added some new designs of her famous ‘Chelsea’ frame sunglasses. They come in five different designs including bright yellow (golden) Nicole’s favourite, and red (burnt sunrise) which add a hint of colour to the sunglasses available in the collection. The others are black, emerald green and tortoise. All of the glasses are cat eye frames, which include gold cutout logo medallions at the temples. They also provide 100% UV protection.
Nicole has kept her favoured Aztec designs in her jewellery, bringing a wide range of rings, ear jewellery, necklaces and bracelets. Some classic pieces which return in altered colours and patterns include sunburst pendants and earrings. Nicole has also introduced a comb – made from gunmetel – with pavé triangle detailing. The comb is available in three different colours; black, gold and silver. Other interesting additions include the Turkana rings and necklaces; an engraved bull skull ring with smokey grey pavé stones. Each of these are available in rose gold, gold and silver.
Moving onto clothing, the different items compliment one another and have matching counterparts as usual. Nicole has gone back to the roots of what HOH was to begin with; featuring a more laidback style with silk kimonos and silk flared trousers. The brand also brings more short oversized dresses, ideal for the summer, including long silk wrap dresses. Nicole also introduces a fitted jersey dress with a burnout design and halter neckline and silk skirts. The silk material adds a quality of comfort which is something Nicole has always aimed for since she created the fashion line back in 2008.
Another lovely piece in particular is the gold Kate dress, which Nicole wore whilst at her pop-up store taking interviews. It’s a loose fitting embroidered silk dress with overlay at the bust and spaghetti straps.
Lastly, something that is not part of the actual HOH collection but is featured at The Grove store are some vintage pieces which Nicole has collected on her travels. Just Ask Jess posted this Guns N’ Roses top that she picked up from the store today.
The pop-up shop will be open for the next two weeks, closing on July 16th, so hurry and get down there if you’re in the LA area. Click here for an itinerary of special events taking place there.
