That’s the invitation from a trio of designers who for pre-fall each showed variations on the T-shirt cocktail dress. At Adam, Adam Lippes opted for a sequined frock bedecked with necklacelike embroidery, and Reem Acra also went for the shiny stuff on a beaded version with cutout shoulders. At Luca Luca, Raul Melgoza was inspired by a Sixties Faye Dunaway for his chic boatneck number.
