Kyle Richards is one of the most popular personas on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, partly because she has a fantastic sense of style and a great personality. For years now, people have been asking whether or not she has a clothing line of her own.
In the fall of 2019, Kyle Richards released her own clothing line featuring resort wear with popular designer Shahida Clayton. The line is called Kyle + Shahida. It features affordable clothing as well as luxury pieces.
Kyle specifically designed the line so that it would appeal to fans of the show, and she has widely succeeded in doing just that.
Kyle Richards Designs Clothing Of All Kinds
Resort wear is known for breezy, comfortable styles that are “easy” to wear. On the brand’s website, they call the clothing “luxury loungewear.”
Just like on the show, Richards has tried to expand what falls into the resort wear category, including blazers, coats, robes, and more into her catalog.
Everything still has that comfortable feel in bright colors and bold patterns. Some people have compared it to Gucci.
The line’s distinctive style is easy to pick out, especially for fans of the show.
She Chose Fabrics That Were Comfortable
Browsing through the website, it is easy to see that there is a focus on fabrics that are breezy and comfortable. They tend to be lightweight silks, satin, and other viscose fabrics.
This adds to the resort feel of the line, and it also makes the line move well on camera and in pictures, something that would be at the top of Kyle’s mind as she designs.
The Brand Has Been A Hit
The website shows that many styles from this line are sold out and some have limited quantities remaining. Fans have reported that their clothing has been high-quality and can be worn in many different situations.
It is also a favorite for some of the other Housewives!
As such, the brand set up a “pre-order” option for people to get the styles that are bound to be in demand. This is also the location to get made to measure items.
Of Course, It Has Been Worked Into The Show
It wouldn’t be Real Housewives without a bit of drama, and there is plenty of it surrounding this line.
The show went behind the scenes during the fashion show and the days leading up to it, showing how Kyle made last-minute changes.
There was a heated Twitter exchange after the airing of one episode where Dorit slams Kyle’s fashion line and show in a confessional.
She Even Showed At Fashion Week 2020
Following a triumphant debut at Fall Fashion Week 2019, Kyle continued to show her line at Spring Fashion Week 2020. The line focused mostly on relaxed silhouettes and relaxed designs, much like the other clothing lines who showed.
Her fashion shows get largely rave reviews for how colorful, fun, and well-designed they are.
Kyle Richards’ Fashion Line Is Sticking Around
While there may be some controversy about the fashion line (and some of it may well be manufactured for television), it looks like this is a line that is going to stick around. The style is very “in” right now and it gets a ton of free publicity from those on the show.
