Richie’s Run As A Macy’s Designer-------
Karl Lagerfeld did it, Giambattista Valli did it, and more recently, Alberta Ferretti joined the list of Macy’s guest designers. Today, one more fashion star got added to the group: Nicole Richie. Though images of the Nicole Richie for Impulse line have not been revealed yet, it will reportedly include a peacock print Richie has used before and “bright jewel colors as a big theme in the line, which will offer 24 to 30 styles,” according to Macy’s Inc. chief marketing officer Martine Reardon.
Of the collection, which is set to hit select Macy’s stores and Macys.com in mid-September, Richie (who also has her House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate collections and is busy as a mentor on NBC’s reality fashion show Fashion Star) says, “With each collection I do, it all starts with music,” adding that the Macy’s collection “represents the many different layers of a modern woman. This collection has a strong mix of masculine and feminine: printed chiffon mixed with faux leathers. I focused on the details, from the zipper pulls to the buttons.”
