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 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.”

Models eating macarons before a runway show? It happened.

Erin Wasson unveiled her ready-to-wear collection for Zadig & Voltaire in Paris yesterday. Of her sixties and seventies rock inspiration for the collection, the model says, “I wish I was there at Woodstock. I wish that I was sitting on a tour van with a bunch of musicians.” [WWD]

House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate founder Nicole Richie has a new title to add to the list. Richie and Jessica Simpson have both been announced as judges on NBC’s upcoming Fashion Star, along with host Elle Macpherson. [Page Six]

Too-Fast Fashion, Courthouse Couture, Karl And Rachel Scream For Ice Cream, And More…


Alaïa speaks! The reclusive designer spared a word or two when he showed a few Fall looks to a gathered mass in Paris. Here’s what he had to say of fashion’s frantic pace: “It’s inhumane…too many collections; too much pressure.” [WWD]

The Times takes on a controversial topic: the dress code of the court appearance. Lindsay Lohan—a frequent guest of the L.A. County courthouse—tends to go high and tight (like her recent white Kimberly Ovitz number); her old friend Nicole Richie used to go classier in Breakfast at Tiffany’s-style black; and as for Naomi Campbell, she, of course, wears her good friend Azzedine Alaïa.
