The collection's textiles may seem very familiar if you've followed Lepore's fashion career, "Everything is pulled from something we've done one time or another." Lepore isn't only bringing the same textile designs from the runway to her home collection, but also the same attention to detail. She is known for manufacturing most of her clothing in America, which few designers are doing anymore, and having a say in every stitch and seam. The home collection is no different, "Everything passed through me and my team. At the midpoint we were seeing actual product, deciding what should be embroidered and what shouldn't, and generally reworking things in our studio." The finished products come at a perfect time for a Spring, "It's so dreary here in New York I can't wait to update my house with new bedding and pillows." And if you think Lepore will just sprinkle in a few items into her place, you're mistaken. "I'm going to call and make sure there is one of everything for me as soon as this interview is over." Perhaps her townhouse isn't finished after all.
