Adam Fall/Winter 2010 RTW
Lippes cashed in on crisp, cold-weather fare: abundantly textured knits turned in jumbo-cabled cropped sweaters; a pebbled handknit dress belted at the waist and terrific outerwear in the form of a fur-lined anorak and shearling-collared jackets.
A series of long plaid chiffons worked as a light-as-air counterpoint to cozy oversize sweaters.
The success of this collection was all in the detail; decadent, yet functional: coyote lining on a khaki anorak; a waxed cotton cagoul with fox-trim; chunky, cable-knit, cream, cashmere sweaters and shrugs, hand-painted in metallics, worn with plaid chiffon skirts or flecked, wool shorts.
