Wendy Nichol placed a leather crown atop her long hair while her Scottish Fold cat, named Tiny Lou — the unofficial mascot of Nichol’s SoHo boutique and atelier, and a perfect foil to the designer’s witchy aesthetic — watched from a careful distance. The adjustable and reversible crowns, which range from $275 to $375, are part of Nichol’s new accessories offering for fall, which includes a foray into fine jewelry.
“Sometimes I wear new things around just to see what people’s reactions are. And when I wear the crown, people are very taken aback, but I think it’s in a good way,” said the Toronto-born, New York-based designer, whose namesake brand counts Jessica Alba and Jemima Kirke as fans. Since its launch in 2007, the designer has quietly opened two boutiques in New York and continues to steadily grow her clothing and accessories brand.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
