It's been 13 years since Nicole Richie launched House of Harlow 1960, her clothing and accessories line for Revolve, but for the first time ever, she's teamed up with her sister, Sofia, for the spring collection. In fact, this is the first time the sisters have worked on a project period. If you're a fan of House of Harlow 1960, you know that the brand's aesthetic is distinctly '70s-inspired, and with Sofia's signature effortlessly cool California-girl touch added to the mix, you have the perfect grouping of pieces to wear throughout this summer of reemergence.
The collection was inspired by Lauren Hutton in the '70s, lounging in the Pacific Isles. That translates to a plethora of day-to-night pieces, including matching sets in juicy hues, interesting slip dresses, sleek swimwear, and crochet pieces that are best described as modern bohemian.
Pieces from House of Harlow 1960 x Sofia Richie will continue to drop each month through July, but if you want to start building your late-spring/summer wardrobe now, scroll to shop our favorite pieces from the first drop. But first up, scroll to read the answers Nicole and Sofia gave to some of our most burning questions.
Did you learn anything new about each other's personal style (or about each other, in general) throughout the design process? How did your sartorial differences shape the collection?
Nicole Richie: 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.
Which piece do you predict will sell out first, and which piece(s) does each of you think you'll wear the most?
NR: That’s a hard question! Sofia will say the oversize button-down shirts. I am loving the maxi dresses, and we did some great crochet knits that are perfect for spring and summer.
Sofia Richie: It's so hard to say, but personally, I think all of the sets are so cute and easy to throw on for a foolproof spring look. For me, I love an oversize button-down, so I'll be living in all the menswear-inspired shirting. They're so versatile and can be worn super casual with a good pair of denim shorts and some great accessories or over a bathing suit.
This collection is filled with so many optimistic styles that are perfect for going back out in the world but that are still relaxed and comfortable. How did the current state of things influence your vision and goals for the collection?
NR: It was impossible to predict how people were going to be spending their lives, especially when we started working on this collection, which was right at the beginning of the pandemic. I am more focused on the way I wanted the woman to feel. This spring is about newness. We are entering a new world. And I’m wanting women to feel comfortable in their bodies and excited to go out into the world. I think this collection speaks to that.

It's official: Hair salons are opening for business across the US and hairdressers are busier than ever. Yes, after many months of neglect (with the occasional at-home haircut or color thrown in for good measure), many of us are desperate to get back into the hair salon to let the professionals take care of our strands. But with my own hair appointment booked in for next week, I have to admit that I"m suddenly feeling a little overwhelmed.
There's a lot of pressure in a return-to-salon haircut: should I go for a full-on transformation and get my hair chopped into a shorter bob or embrace my current mid-length hairstyle by adding some fresh layers? There are so many hair possibilities to choose from and I know that friends and family are feeling equally confused.
So who better to turn to than the experts themselves for some guidance? While the start of 2021 saw many hairstylists predicting that copper colors, tapered cuts and maxi fringes would be some of the biggest hair trends of the year, what hairstyles are people actually asking for once they're in the salon chair?
"I've had a lot of guests showing me pictures of shag haircuts," says Roman Sys, Stylist at Trevor Sorbie Bristol for L'Oréal Professionnel. "They are all different lengths but definitely the loose, free-looking styles have been very popular. I definitely think with the trend of more shag haircuts, a less is more approach works well: Letting your hair air dry to maintain some natural movement then scrunching in some light but hydrating mousse."
"As we come out of lockdown, many of us have had no choice but to let our hair grow out and to experience the longer length," explains Dylan Brittain, Schwarzkopf UK ambassador, and owner of Rainbow Room International's George Square Salon. "Now that salons are re-open, many clients are looking to keep their length but get rid of any damage and splits ends and opt for a gorgeous, blunt, mid-length style that keeps the length without being too long. Plus, it looks incredibly healthy and on-trend for the season. The great thing about this style is its versatility: it can be styled in so many different ways."
"We are so excited to be back in-salon and have had a variety of requests in our first weeks being back open," says Adam Reed, UK editorial ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel. "A lot of people have been opting for a shorter look to really get rid of some weight (both physically and metaphorically!) and we've seen bobs of all varieties leaving the salon: from the Shoreditch Shag, a shaggy textured look, to the Brick Lane Bob, a clean, blunt and healthy-looking finish."
"I'm actually seeing a resurgence of longer hair," says George Northwood, celebrity hairstylist and founder of Undone. "A lot of my long-haired clients have asked me for just a trim, as they've never managed to grow it that long before and they've realized it actually looks great. Lockdown has given people extra time to grow their hair beyond what they thought was possible."
"When it comes to color, there are different directions that people are going with," explains AJ Lordet, colourist at Frederic Fekkai Salon, New York. "One type of client is coming and looking for something really different. They're completely changing up what they're doing and they're going lighter, brighter, with maybe even a pop of fashion tones like a pink or blue or whatever is their favorite."
"Balayage is being taken blonder with the requests of a baby blonde tone," says Samantha Cusick, Redken advocate, and owner of Samantha Cusick London. "Clients are still keen to keep more of their natural color at the root."
"I feel like opening the salon doors this time has been massively different to when we have reopened following the previous lockdown. My clients seem a lot more positive and less cautious in what they are wanting to do with their hair," says Jack Baxter, Redken advocate, and owner of Baxter Salon, Glasgow. "I have been cutting in lots more style and shape around the face, and I have also seen a massive increase in fringes. I don’t think I have ever cut this many fringes in the past in such a short space of time."
"Since being back to work most of my guests have been opting for the chop and going for a super choppy, low-maintenance lob," says Vicki Anne Hoskin, Redken advocate, and owner of The Grove, Cornwall. "This look is very current and completely effortless and clients are still able to tie back or wear their hair in tousled waves."
"Being stuck in lockdown for such a long time, there are many people who want to try something new, fun, and a bit different when it comes to their hair," says Dylan Brittain. "Cropped hairstyles and pixie cuts are a great way to do this. This style is also great as we come into the warmer months as it takes excess weight off our hair and can be styled easily with styling products instead of heated styling tools."

Despite winning the league title in 2019-20, Real Madrid had something of a player purge last summer.

Imre Szijan is a Hungarian activist and writer living in Berlin. Is this finally the time the European Union stands up to Viktor Orbán? In the more than a decade the Hungarian prime minister has been in power, independent institutions, universities, the press and minority communities have all been under constant attack. This time, it’s Hungary’s LGBTQ+ community that’s in Orbán’s sights — but if the past is anything to go by, the EU is unlikely to do much about it. The deployment of starvation tactics against asylum seekers in Hungarian detention facilities was not enough to trigger serious sanctions against the Orbán regime. Nor was the expulsion of the Central European University (CEU), amid an anti-Semitic smear campaign targeting its founder, George Soros....

THIS WEEK IN LATIN AMERICA MEXICO/UNITED STATES: A surge of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border is straining the capacity of United States detention facilities. There are currently around 14,000 migrants in federal custody, and officials are building up the capacity to care for them. Since Biden’s inauguration, the U.S. has seen a dramatic spike in the number of people crossing the border.

Adam Isacson, an analyst at the Washington Office on Latin America, told the Associated Press that the surge in migrants...
