She’s become the poster girl for that New York polish we all want in our wardrobes, and now it seems we’re one step closer to achieving it. Yep, Olivia Palermo has designed her very first collection, and it’s full of the sorts of pieces we’re accustomed to seeing on Olivia herself.
She may have collaborated with multiple beauty and accessories brands before, but this actually marks the first ready-to-wear range that Olivia has put her name to. OP has designed the 32-piece collection for Norstrom’s in-house label Chelsea28, and it’s packed with glossy separates and stand-out prints that will instantly up the ante of your everyday dressing.
“I’m very, very proud of the line,” Olivia told Observer.com. “I think we’ve really started this collection by building pieces, and we’ll be building it out through spring, fall, and holiday – lots of overcoats and statement pieces that I think will build in to young girls’ wardrobes everywhere.”
To celebrate, Olivia hosted a dinner at swanky NY restaurant Indochine, inviting the likes of Caroline Issa and Rachel Zoe to join her. Dressed in a flowing burgundy maxi and furry gilet from her Chelsea28 collection (naturally), Olivia accessorised with Louboutin boots and a Jimmy Choo handbag. Posing with her husband Johannes Huebl, OP took to Instagram to share a picture of the two of them, writing: Luckiest girl in the room last night ! #besthusband. Celebrating the launch of my collection with @nordstrom.”
Apparently, as the fashion set were sitting down to dinner, Leonardo DiCaprio unexpectedly turned up with 10 of his friends, hoping to dine at the restaurant. While he was invited to stay at the private party, he reportedly opted to head elsewhere instead. Clearly Leo’s not as excited as we are about this collection.
Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 For Nordstrom is available online now, with prices starting at just £50. We’ve got our eye on those denim culottes, the printed shirts and the knitted maxi dress, so just make sure you leave some of those for us. Oh, who are we kidding? It’s every woman for herself. Go, go, go!
