Luann de Lesseps Gives the Scoop on Her New Line
Get ready to vacation in style—find out what inspired her Cruise Collection.
The Countess is at it again, darling!
RHONY royalty Luann de Lesseps recently revealed an easy and chic clothing line, launching exclusively on EVINE Live starting February 15. Countess Collection: Cruise 2015 is inspired by Luann's love of traveling, and addresses the fact that women need clothes that can easily make the trip with them.
"It's really inspired by what I like to wear everyday," she tells the Daily Dish. "The things I love to wear and would take on vacation, things that can go from day to night that travel really well."
And when the vacation is over? The pieces seamlessly transition into everyday life—from parties to the office, depending upon your preference. "I love to wear classic things and accessorize with things that will never go out of style," she says. "Things that are easy to wear and are easy to accessorize, that you can wear during the day with a chunky necklace—it's transitional and it works well with existing pieces in your wardrobe."
As a former model and television personality in Milan, Luann definitely knows style. But does she know a budget? She assures us the collection is easily affordable—but insists on its dedication to quality, something she actively took a role in.
"I wouldn't want to make anything for women that I wouldn't wear myself," she explains. "I go through it, try it on, I correct it. I'm a stickler for the quality and for when they get it, it's well made and well done. I'm proud of that." Nice!
So what's next for the Countess? Sounds like the sky's the limit. "I'm already doing my next line," she says. "I'm doing cruise, and then spring, and summer, and fall. It's exciting!" Also exciting—it doesn't end with clothes. "I want to expand," she explains. "I'm looking at jewelry now and other things to do—in the lifestyle arena, at home. It's really a way of living."
