Uniquely striking, Nico spent her teenage years modeling throughout Europe before fleeing to New York where she caught the attention of Andy Warhol and his Factory crowd. Under Warhol’s guidance, she joined forces with his in-house band, The Velvet Underground, singing lead vocals on one of the most legendary rock albums of all time, The Velvet Underground and Nico.
Her wide eyes and high cheekbones made her a 60s standout, but it’s her undeniably modern sense of style that has made her an enduring fashion icon and the inspiration behind our iconic blue jean, the Nico.
In celebration of Nico’s low maintenance, high impact style, we’ve created a Pinterest board showcasing her best looks. Check it out here.
