N.Y-based designer Nanette Lepore is known coast-to-coast for her pretty, printed, ladylike dresses and work-savvy separates, but season after season it's been her fun, femme swimsuits that have really caught our eye.
This month, The Feast Los Angeles caught up with the candid designer at the Four Seasons, where she debuted her Spring/Summer 2011 swimwear collection over cocktails and manicures (Nanette Lepore's own "Summer Love Coral" shade). Models mingled donning the designer's rosette-printed, vintage-inspired collection and Lepore played along with our signature barrage of questions. (Spoiler alert: Spell check twice if you e-mail her, and don't even think about borrowing her clothes.) [The Feast LA]
