Nicole Richie and Sofia have launched their first joint collection for House Of Harlow 1960. They spoke to ELLE UK about the collaboration process, bad outfits, and stealing each other’s clothes!
Sofia Richie has confirmed what we all already knew: that her sister Nicole is a fashion icon. So much so, even her ostensibly ‘bad’ outfits are ones for the sartorial history books.
‘[Nicole’s] bad outfits were just iconic,’ the 22-year-old tells ELLE UK from her older sister’s home in Los Angeles, California. ‘So, how can you diss an iconic outfit?’
Even the TV personality and fashion designer’s 13-year-old daughter, Harlow Madden, understands the importance of her mother’s most memorable looks.
‘My daughter just asked me if I had any of my The Simple Life outfits saved,’ the 38-year-old adds. ‘I was like: “Saved? No”.’
‘Sofia has been wearing House of Harlow since it began,’ Nicole says of the collaboration. ‘It felt really natural and something fun to do with my sister.’
The model has celebrated her older sister’s style and business for decades, citing her as one of her ultimate style inspirations since childhood. ‘I loved Rihanna growing up and I loved the Olsen twins. But, I could go to Nicole’s house, go into her closet and steal everything,’ Sofia reveals.
Growing up, Nicole looked to Drew Barrymore, Jacinda Barrett and Clarissa of Clarissa Explains It All for style inspiration, but sine Sofia became an adult, she admits she started returning the clothes-stealing favour.
‘I do have [Sofia’s] cream Rick Owens jacket at my house that she left here. I should give that back,’ she jokes.
