INTERVIEW WITH KYLE RICHARDS
No Holiday would be complete without the radiance and sparkle of Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Kyle Richards. Beverly Hills Resident recently sat down with Kyle to discover her latest boutique venture. Kyle by Alene Too is a 5,000 square foot emporium of chic, right in the heart of 90210.
BHR: Good morning Kyle. Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk to us about your newest venture, Kyle by Alene Too. It is such an exciting project. Can tell me more about the boutique and what motivated you to forge the partnership with Debbie Weisman and Lizzy Schwartz?
KR: I have always loved fashion and it’s been a dream of mine to own my own boutique. I went to Boca Raton for a book signing at Alene Too (my partners Debbie Weisman’s and Lizzy Schwartz’s store) The moment I walked in I fell in love with the store. It had everything I loved all under one roof. When I came back to L.A I decided to reach out to them with the idea of opening a store in Beverly Hills. The three of us hit it off immediately. I am so excited about opening a store like this right in the heart of Beverly Hills.
BHR: So the store is truly an emporium of your favourite designers. Who are you loving at the moment? What’s hot for this Holiday season?
KR: The store is 5,000 Sq Ft so we are able to have something for everyone. Everything from a denim bar, sweaters and t-shirts to evening wear. Some of my favorite designers that we carry are Haute Hippie, Parker, Missoni, Just Cavalli, J Brand jeans, Iro, Elizabeth and James to name a few. We also have an extensive collection of vintage Chanel jewelry and handbags. This season we are seeing a lot of color, colored denim, plaid and of course sequins are always hot during the holidays. When it came to designing the store we turned to Faye Resnick (Faye Resnick Design) The store is absolutely beautiful. Its glamorous and comfortable. My friends and kids come in and hang out with me. So fun!
BHR:Your style is very impressive, effortlessly chic with a just the right hint of bohemian. Do you have any style icons, women that have maybe influenced or inspired your unique look? Does music have an impact on that style?
KR: I have many style icon’s that I admire and influence me. Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Lopez…When it comes to fashion I have many moods!
