Adam Lippes transported us straight into his own home this season. The designer’s stunning apartment served as the perfect backdrop for his equally well-conceived collection. Going one step further, Lippes collaborated with artist Yelena Yemchuk on a series of moving vignettes to capture the clothing in action. “People are looking at the collection on phones and websites all over the world; they want to see it move, not only flat images,” said Lippes. “It’s something I’ve been wanting to experiment with and Yelena was completely game to do something new with me.”
Silk jacquards, a velvet burnout, hand screen-printed French terry, Chantilly laces, and re-embroidered point d’espirit featured prints of Eden and Wisteria designs by de Gournay, which were particularly stunning. Double-faced plaid in cotton and wool really stood out on an overcoat, a pair of cropped trousers, and a sweatshirt top. Simple white dresses were just right, especially when paired with the Malone Souliers boots that accompanied them. It marked the brand’s first foray into shoes, and other styles included pleated pumps in an array of colors. Everything from the patterns and fabrics to the luxurious Canadian beaver coat to the pleating in a metallic lame skirt and a tailored cream jacket struck just the right cord.
