NICOLE’S HOUSE: House of Harlow 1960 continues to dabble in the retail game. The company is slated to open its second pop-up at the Village at Westfield Topanga on Thursday, located within another temporary space at the mall, Nathan Turner’s American Style. It follows the firm’s first temporary shop in the summer at The Grove shopping center.
“We learned so much at The Grove about what type of products our clients like best and what experiences they value,” said designer Nicole Richie.
The company retooled its Kate dress — a breezy, loose-fitting design — which will be sold at the Village at Westfield store and also wanted to provide an interactive experience based on takeaways from The Grove unit. Richie and Turner are expected to hold a conversation about personal style the evening of the store’s opening.
The store, which will be open through Oct. 31, will carry the company’s fall collection of apparel, jewelry and accessories.
There is also interest in a permanent storefront for the brand, although the timing of that appears less certain.
“I never say never and I would love to have a permanent House of Harlow 1960 someday,” Richie said. “However, I am having so much fun popping up and popping in. It is exciting to bring my vision to different places, meet so many interesting people and learn from each experience.”
