NEW YORK, United States —  Adam Lippes, who showed his collection in the parlour of his warm-and-beautiful Washington Square Park home on Saturday morning, designs elegant clothes for the woman who likes to dabble in trends. This season, that meant plenty of engaging separates. There was a metallic pleated skirt, an elongated satin bomber done in a soft tropical print (a collaboration with the English wallpaper company de Gournay) and a three-gauge, double-face marigold-coloured cashmere sweater to name just a few.

Lippes, who says he likes to show the collection in his apartment because “clothes don’t live on a runway,” was particularly excited about a denim coat bonded to black shearling, which was made in New York and took more than a year to develop. What his designs lack, however, are clear brand signatures that make them unmistakably his. Although perhaps the only signifier he thinks he really needs is that his clothes bring pleasure to the wearer. He does have a way with print and it would be nice to see him develop that further as he goes.
