Adam Lippes was inspired by the view from his studio window, the High Line, which he calls “the runway in the sky.” Accordingly, he handled spring with a charming exuberance that focused on bright colors, bold prints and flirty shapes. Underscoring the eclecticism, a  girly vibe was reflected in short floral dresses and ivory linen versions with embroidered lace panels, as well as short skirts and cropped pants rendered in floral-printed denim and delicately sheer coats. Lippes even went soft with sportier fare, such as neon sweatpants paired with a rhinestone-embellished short-sleeve sweatshirt. The only masculine touch came in a pair of gold-embroidered strike-up-the-band jackets, the best in red wool over a long ivory lace dress. While a bit out of step with most of the show, they added a fun vintage touch in an otherwise savvy modern collection.
