WWD: Your father was a big breeder of thoroughbred horses. Do you ride?
I used to, but I got thrown a few times. After that, I thought maybe not. My sister Arianna has a horse that might be in the Kentucky Derby. If he makes it, everyone [in my family] will go. My parents are gone so it’s nice that she has carried that on.

WWD: Do you have a few designers or artists who inspire you?
I always say Mother Nature is my biggest inspiration. But I so inspired mostly by family members. Two of my brothers are artists and one of my sisters has a gallery. My mother was the coolest woman in the world. I also like a ton of people like Albert Hadley. I love the ones that hold onto the old and doesn’t mind a little bit of the rough and tear here and there, or the daisy from the past.

WWD: Do you have any new projects that you are excited about?
I have done china for Neiman Marcus that should be out any week now. My line with Matouk is expanding with beach towels and more baby stuff. I have a children’s line that is very bright, eclectic and definitely inspired by the collages.


WWD: You seem to have a lot going on.
I like to be productive — I like to be on the move but I could use a little time off. It is tough traveling with three young boys, which seems very frightful — for everyone else on the plane. Maybe this summer at the beach will be our vacation.
