Nicole Richie - Nicole Richie To Expand Handbag Line

Nicole Richie plans to expand her handbag line every season.

The socialite's House of Harlow 1960 line have unveiled a 14-piece handbag collection - ranging from a $150 red hard-cased crocodile print clutch to $625 taupe and ivory burn-out pony hair hobo - that will debut next month and Nicole has promised to expand the range further over time.

She said: "Handbags have always been a part of the equation since we first launched the House of Harlow 1960 brand.

"We just needed to make sure all of the components were aligned before setting foot into that category. The collection is quite small in terms of the styles we are launching with. I wanted to make sure that each piece is special and then be able to grow it slowly and organically season after season."

The seventies-inspired collection incorporates materials such as vintage leather, calf hair and velvet, along with fringe detailing, along with toggles, studs and jaguar head hardware, and Nicole says she always tries to listen to what her customers wants when creating each piece.

She told WWD: "When I design, I always try to design pieces that are universal, meaning anyone can wear and carry it. At this stage of my design process, I really try to gather direct feedback from my customers, whether through in-store personal appearances, my web site, twitter or Facebook. It really helps me when they provide me with their desires, feedback and comments on what they are looking for, so I can try my best to cater to their needs, yet stay true to the brand's identity."

The House of Harlow 1960 handbag collection will be available at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Shopbop.com.
