A graduate of Cornell University, Adam Lippes began his career in fashion at Polo Ralph Lauren before moving to Oscar de la Renta, where he grew to be one of the youngest creative directors of a luxury fashion house. And today, we announce his first menswear collection. The collection builds upon Lippes favoured aesthetic of refined, intellectual and understated design anchored in fine fabrics and with impeccable tailoring.
The 16-piece collection has a relaxed mood and features shirting, fine gauge knitwear, t-shirts, chinos and shorts. It’s a nod to relaxed US style, made from natural fabrics including merino and cotton. Shirting comes in three colours; white, powder blue and indigo, and a longer tunic version. Three styles of crew neck and a sweatshirt were designed to be worn over shirting, and t-shirts come in three styles, long-sleeved, short-sleeved and Henley. The collection is completed by chinos in two colours and a pair of shorts. The palette for the collection has a natural feel and includes powder blue, heather grey, navy, tobacco and white.
