FIRST LOOK: WINTER KATE

see nicole richie's designs for spring 2012.

Wouldn't it be fun to take a load of designer dresses, throw them in the back of your pickup truck, drive to a dusty desert, and take photos as the sand scrapes your hemlines?

Nicole Richie thinks so.  Her new lookbook for Winter Kate is a heap of swirling print chiffon and off-white cotton that stretches halfway between Joshua Tree and Marrakesh.
