NYFW18: Adam Lippes

AMERICAN designer Adam Lippes transported us to the Scottish countryside for his AW18 Ready-To-Wear Collection. Aspects of the countryside are evident in various looks on show, such as the cut-out fitted peplum tweed blazer, bucket hats and high-waisted culottes with a belt fastening, all which resembled a gentleman in his shooting and hunting attire.

 

 

An elegant flowing chiffon dress, a bomber jacket layered underneath a tailored long line coat, a high-neck shirt complemented with ruffled cuffs and a matching a-line skirt, all displayed the black and white hand-painted horse prints, inspired by Scotland’s King James V tapestries. Focusing on Scotland, it makes sense for Adam Lippes to work with the Scottish company Harris Tweed, who weaves beautiful and intricate luxury cloth and tweed that is dyed, spun and handwoven by islanders of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Together they created a spectacular coat made from tweed, woven with black lace.

 

Attention to detail is apparent in this collection and not just for the garments, working with the British paint company Farrow & Ball. The dreamy dusty pink interior that covered the grand walls of Adam Lippes’ new location in Brooklyn Heights, was carefully considered for months to be ready in time to debut his collection.
