Nicole Richie & House of Harlow Sashay into the Handbag Business…

Nicole Richie may have been thrust into the limelight via her mega-successful dad Lionel Richie as well as her stint in reality television, but has proven herself to actually be the true “Break Out” Star. With the burgeoning success of her first design venture, House of Harlow 1960 , married life and two gorgeous little ones Nicole has proven she is truly a force to be reckoned with.

House of Harlow recently announced a new addition to the lifestyle collection this Fall with the launch of clutches, hobo styles and the trendy cross-body bags.  The collection will be comprised of 14 pieces with a price point of $150 for a croc printed clutch to upwards of $625 for a pony-hair hobo.

In a recent interview with WWD, Richie noted that the handbag collection was “always a part of the equation since the launch of the House of Harlow 1960 brand”.  The vision was to create pieces that were a mix of casual and luxe. The collection is the perfect pairing with the brands jewelry, footwear and contemporary clothing counterpart Winter Kate.

The handbag collection will be available mid-July at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and
