For all you Nanette Lepore fans out there: the designer's got lots of new goodies up her sleeve. A swimwear line will launch for cruise 2011; shoes are coming next spring; handbags will land on store shelves this fall; a new casual knitwear label called "Oonagh by Nanette Lepore" (Oonagh is her daughter's middle name) just arrived a couple of months ago during the holiday season and will expand into new stores this year; you're probably already wearing Lepore's new fragrance; and her first e-commerce endeavor will go live this autumn. Whew! [WWD]
