(NEW YORK) Nanette Lepore just struck a home run. The designer inked a deal with Peking Handicraft Inc., an international manufacturer and wholesaler specializing in household textiles and accessories, for a homeware collection inspired by the cheery colors and signature prints of her ready-to-wear line. The new collection, dubbed Nanette Lepore Villa, will feature a wide range of vibrant accoutrements including decorative pillows, kitchenware, rugs, and an assortment of bedding from sheets, coverlets, and shams to bedskirts, comforters, and duvets. Bedding is priced between $249 and $299; home gifts are priced between $100 to $270. Nanette Lepore Villa will debut for Fall 2013 and will be sold at select department stores, specialty boutiques and catalogues, and on NanetteLepore.com.
