As if a jewelry collection and maternity line weren’t enough, Nicole Richie is set to launch a contemporary women’s clothing collection for Spring 2010. Winter Kate, named after daughter Harlow’s two middle names, will be a 37-piece line inspired by Nicole’s own bohemian style with a ’60s and ’70s flair, reports WWD. “She is a woman like me,” Nicole says of her target customer. “She does not look at labels; she knows how to mix and match. The pieces can be dressed up, made casual, but most importantly, they provide the wearer a means of self-expression and fun.” Winter Kate will include mostly tops, vests and jackets in colorful vintage-inspired silk, crepe and chiffon. Nicole will also mix in long slip dresses, asymmetrical short dresses, tunics, a kimono-sleeved maxidress, cotton macrame, suede and silk vests, and a shrunken leather jacket. The line will hit stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Ron Herman, Intermix and Kitson, beginning in February. We can’t wait to stock up! Tell us: Will you check out Nicole Richie’s Winter Kate collection?

I’m so excited for this! I hope its affordable & not just in LA & NY…& hopefully at like Target!

Jamie, considering that this line will be appearing in upscale department stores like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks, there is no way it will be appearing at Target. As for affordability, I can only guess prices will be in the lower “designer” range–just out of reach for the average woman.

I love Nicole and where her life is going right now. As much as I would like to wear something from her clothing line, those department stores are out of my price range.

I love Nicole too and don’t get me wrong, but Nicole Richie is a clone of Rachel Zoe. Nicole had absolutely ZERO style before she started being dressed by Zoe. I think Richie seems like a fun girl, great mom and has made great strides for the better, but as for originality….. I’d rather look to see what trends Zoe comes up with first.

this line will be very expensive but hopefully if it does well, she will produce a lower priced line for stores like target. i love nicole as she has come so far in such a short amount of time. she always looks so pulled together without trying too hard. i love that.

Ladies that shop at Target for clothes, they are NOT quality clothing, are not well-made, and are not of quality material and will not last. Well made clothing may be more expensive, but will last a lifetime, especially if it’s a classic piece. I’d rather have quality, several great pieces, than quanity (lots of cheap pieces). Nicole is putting her line in great stores, I live in NYC and like a bargain too. Saks, Bloomingdales, etc., have sales ALL the time. You CAN find quality affordable clothing at these stores, and do not have to settle for cheaply made clothing from stores like Target and KMart. I like those stores for other things, but NOT for clothing. Go to the good stores and look for the sales! Always expensive clothing way marked down. Will definately check out Nicole’s line. She looks great lately. Thank God she learned, she used to be a mess!
