(NEW YORK) The young designer with the brand-new moniker, Adam Lippes creates sporty and sophisticated separates that have gained him a following even though his collections tend to be on the safe, commercial side. His first-ever runway show for the Spring 2008 collection was no different, introducing both mens and womenswear that was earthy and refined. A few dresses stood out and pushed the designer creatively, especially a long, strapless one at the beginning of the show and another short, loose-fitting yellow satin dress. But most pieces that made up the collection were casual classics. Off-white shorts or long, flared white pants, light sweaters, and cotton coats dominated the presentation. Nothing ground-breaking but very well-executed, wearable clothes that will probably please his fan base.
