See Sisters Nicole Richie & Sofia Richie Modeling Together
This is their sisters' first collaboration for Nicole's fashion line, House of Harlow 1960.
Nicole Richie's clothing and accessories line, House of Harlow 1960, has been going strong for 13 years. Now, for the first time, she's collaborating with her sister, model and style icon Sofia Ritchie, for the brand's new spring line. The collection will drop this month exclusively at REVOLVE, and the pair have released the first shots of themselves modeling the line. Read on to see Nicole and Sofia modeling side by side for the recent collab.
Though both Nicole and Sofia Richie, the daughters of singer Lionel Richie, have high-profile careers in the fashion world, the sisters have never before worked together. During COVID lockdown, however, the two began strategizing on a collaboration.
"In between watching Netflix and eating, we started talking about our goals for the future, and wanting to create together," Nicole said in a recent interview with Vogue. Sofia also shared that it was Nicole who first inspired her own passion for fashion. "I watched Nicole build up House of Harlow to where it is today, and I admire her for that. I wouldn't be interested in fashion if it wasn't for her. I've learned so much from her."

The spring collection, which includes "breezy tops, retro-inspired slip dresses, midi skirts, swimsuits, and other warm-weather essentials," blends the two sisters' personal styles, "drawing on the signature '70s aesthetic of House of Harlow complemented by the fun, effortless flair of Sofia." The looks were reportedly inspired by glamorous images of Lauren Hutton vacationing in the Pacific Islands in the 1970s.
For big sister Nicole, collaborating with Sofia was something she had always envisioned. "From the beginning of House of Harlow, I imagined it a place where my family would come and create if they ever felt a desire to," Nicole said in a statement. "Sofia has an incredibly unique, cool, and effortless sense of style, and it felt natural to incorporate that feel into this Spring collection."
Nicole also shared with Who What Wear that their sartorial differences helped shape the collection. "Sofia has such a great eye, and it was great watching her put looks together within the collection that I never would have thought of. We each designed individual garments instead of doing each piece together. This allowed the collection to represent both of us and made the collection full and complete."
Nicole wasn't the only one thrilled about the collaboration—Sofia revealed that joining forces with her designer sister is a dream come true for her, as well.
"I have always looked up to my sister and her amazing style," Sofia said in a statement. "I am so excited to be collaborating with her on House of Harlow and loved being able to work closely with her to create this collection."
When asked about her favorite pieces in the collection, Sofia shared told Who What Wear, "For me, I love an oversize button-down, so I'll be living in all the menswear-inspired shirting," calling the garments "so versatile."
