Nicole Richie talks managing mental health as a business owner in a pandemic

In May, Nicole Richie joined French-American clothing designer Joseph Altuzarra to talk about their shared mental health experiences as business owners over the past year, with The Mental Health Coalition, who are a charity organisation. The pair discuss feeling the need to be strong and have it all together when they were actually feeling anything but that. They also talk self-care while parenting, the importance of therapy even when you’re feeling good, and how social media affects their mental health. Eventually they are joined by psychologist Dr. Alfiee and he AAKOMA PROJECT, who emphasise the importance of connection and prioritising yourself.

Nicole and Sofia Richie speak to Glamour UK about designing their House of Harlow 1960 collection

Nicole Richie and Sofia spoke to British Glamour about their new fashion collaboration, including quarantine, designing the collection over Zoom, and Sofia’s first experience designing!

“I’ve never been excited about jeans in the way that I am now,” Nicole Richie exclaims from her LA studio, mid-way through our virtual (obviously) interview. The boho babe with impeccable style – whose comedic one-liners shot her into the spotlight alongside Paris Hilton in The Simple Life – is sat beside her 22-year-old sister, Sofia. They’re not only celebrating the *hopeful* end of lockdown, but the launch of their first ever joint clothing collection: Sofia Richie X House of Harlow 1960.

“I like wearing jeans. It’s fun, and it’s to me like a nice re-entry. It’s a nice, calm re-entry.” And that’s exactly the mood we’re trying to channel this season, isn’t it? A nice, calm re-entry into the real world.

Firstly, how has lockdown been for you? What have you been up to, to keep yourselves sane?
“It has been all the things,” Nicole reflects. “I mean, it was… it has been over a year… so it has been scary. I’ve found moments of silver linings that I’ve been spending a lot of time with family.

“I think that an idea that did come from lockdown is being able to create together. I think that really just came from us spending family time together and talking about things we wanted to do, and then deciding we wanted to do this collab. It was like ‘you do this’ and ‘you do this’ and – ‘let’s try this together’. I think for me, being able to create in a time of stillness has been one of the good things that has come out of this for me.”

“I would agree, it has been a rollercoaster of emotions,” Sofia added. “I think spending time with family has been keeping me completely occupied and being able to come together and do this was a great outcome of all of this.”

Nicole and Sofia Richie talk to Vogue about HOH 1960 line: “I watched Nicole build up HOH to where it is today and I admire her for that”

Nicole Richie and Sofia talk to Vogue about their decision to embark on a fashion journey together with their new joint House of Harlow 1960 line, which launched today, May 10th, 2021.

You’d expect siblings stuck together for a year of quarantine would end up embroiled in family squabbles, but for Nicole and Sofia Richie, the time spent together resulted in a brand new fashion project. Back in April 2020, the two sisters made the decision to join forces on a new spring collection for Nicole’s House of Harlow 1960 line. Over a year later, it’s releasing today on Revolve. “In between watching Netflix and eating, we started talking about our goals for the future, and wanting to create together,” Nicole tells Vogue. Sofia adds that she’s always wanted to work with her bigger sister. “I watched Nicole build up House of Harlow to where it is today, and I admire her for that,” says Sofia. “I wouldn’t be interested in fashion if it wasn’t for her. I’ve learned so much from her.”

The spring assortment has a distinct ’60s and ’70s sensibility—House of Harlow does bohemian well!—including easy slip dresses, tie dye trousers, bikinis, wrap skirts, and more, all in sprightly shades of yellow, orange, and green. (Prices range from $78 to $228.) They wanted to capture their drastically different personal styles. “[Sofia’s] got incredible street style and she’s very edgy,” says Nicole. “I wanted to bring that element [into the line] as layering pieces.” Sophia, for her part, admires Nicole’s classic, effortless aesthetic. “I’m definitely the one borrowing from her most of the time. I’m always in that closet,” she says.

For their first time working and designing together, they decided to each take the lead on certain pieces, instead of creating each one as a team. If you expected there to be any sibling rivalry during the design process, you’re also mistaken—though they both did bring different perspectives to the meetings. “We didn’t know how we were going to play off of each other, but it honestly was the perfect combination,” says Sofia. “I would often come in and be like, ‘No, let’s make it shorter, or more funky, or throw in this pattern.” Nicole does admit, “There were definitely times where I said, ‘Guys, we cannot have it that short. That is too much!’”
