Nicole Richie sat down with Instyle to discuss her upcoming Winter Kate collection, available soon. What was your inspiration for the Spring 2011 Winter Kate collection?

Nicole Richie: A lot of the inspiration was drawn from my mother–the way she dressed when I was growing up was very feminine and sexy, but in an innocent, demure way. I also love the way French gypsies mix, wrap and layer their look. So how did you translate that aesthetic into your line?

Nicole Richie: It’s very Lolita-esque, like jumpsuits, rompers, high-waisted shorts and girlie camisoles. But the Kimono-inspired piece is one of my favorites—it is truly a part of the Winter Kate identity. Is there anything you’re most proud of from Winter Kate?

Nicole Richie The camisole dresses! They’re just easy, sexy and elegant all at the same time. Any tips on how to style the collection?

Nicole Richie: You have to dress for yourself! The way I put looks together is different than perhaps my customers would. For me, I would throw on the dress with a pair of House of Harlow 1960 flat riding boots during the day, and then put on a pair of opaque tights with a House of Harlow 1960 bootie at night. Now that House of Harlow 1960 has expanded from just costume jewelry to include shoes, have you thought about doing a fine jewelry collection?

Nicole Richie: I would like to do it one day, but I want it to be accessible to the customers who’ve supported the brand since its inception.
