AN ADDITION TO THE HOUSE OF HARLOW: Like her family, 28-year-old mom Nicole Richie’s apparel and accessories enterprise is growing fast. House of Harlow 1960 is set to launch handbags for spring next year after expanding into sunglasses and footwear this year. Forty to 50 styles, priced from $295 to $595, are planned for the debut handbag collection.
Rick Cytrynbaum, co-founder of Majestic Mills, producer of House of Harlow 1960 accessories and Richie’s clothing label, Winter Kate, called the handbags “very, very, very Nicole.”
“If you look at the clothing and you look at the footwear, you get an idea of what the bags are going to be,” he said. And Cytrynbaum declared Richie is working hard to perfect the designs by vetting everything from weaves to stones for the handbags. “Nicole has been really all over doing this,” he said.
