After a year-long absence from the industry, Adam Lippes bought back the rights to his name and returned with a designer collection for fall. His own take on American sportswear, the lineup was a juxtaposition of tailored yet relaxed separates — or “sporty dressed up,” as Lippes called it. Knits were key; the fine-gauge merino wool sweaters with sheer illusion insets were standouts, as were the beautiful military-inspired coats and chic capes. There were nods to India with kaftans, but in the hands of Lippes they were more streamlined and shirtlike. From elevated track pants to a minimal white long-sleeve gown, the lineup was full of great, easy pieces — a welcome return to fashion.
