Fashion Week in New York is definitely going strong. I've already cried real tears for not being able to make it this season, but rest assured, I'll be back. One of the first designers whose show I ever saw (at Bryant Park, no less) was Adam Lippes. It was Valentine's Day and the show was the sweetest thing ever. So I'm slightly nostalgic when I post a bit of his spring/summer 2017 collection here.
Within the first year of me starting this blog, Adam wrote me a personal note encouraging me to always follow my dreams and to keep up the good work. That said so much about him as a person, in addition to his designs being amazingly brilliant. To this day, I'll back anything he does wholeheartedly.
His label has evolved immensely since that show in 2009 in Bryant Park (it was acquired in 2010 and then he bought it back in 2012), and since the very beginning of his brand in 2004. He has come a long way since his basic white tees he became known for early on, and I relish in his elegant designs both then and now. (I even adored his Target collab)
This year his collection presentation was at his home in New York again (Adam wants everyone invited to be able to feel and interact with the designs, which is perfect thinking. I hate having to watch models prance behind poles in warehouses, honestly.)
My favorite looks are these black and white pieces. They're classy, yet elegant and edgy. They celebrate the fashion lover, yet have the cleanest lines and most refined silhouettes. If I'm going to add new pieces to my closet, these are quite perfect.
Kudos to Adam Lippes for continuing great work in fashion. I'm never, ever disappointed. Keep up the great work, friend.
P.S. The top dalmatian look was inspired by Adam's dogs, favorites in his life. Isn't that the cutest?
