Adam Lippes Fall 2024: Tailoring and Sportwear With a Tougher Elegance

A decade into his business, Adam Lippes seems to have a new lease on creative life. 

After establishing his product and customer base, he’s moving into the “gold dust” phase of his brand, turning his attention to the visual and marketing side, including working with stylist Malina Gilchrist for fall 2024.

The result was a stronger and tougher mood and a collection with nary a floral in sight, including lots of terrific tailoring mixed with his trademark sportswear sensibility honed through years at Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta.

Lippes’ masculine herringbone blazer scattered with crystals is likely to be on many fall wish lists, while a suit with a slightly cropped cardigan jacket and trousers in a fab salt ‘n’ pepper tweed were a sportier, wholly American-looking take on the tailoring trend.

“The mackintosh coat is made from a woolen silk that’s waterproof and has this bounce to it, there’s a double-face cashmere that’s thick and holds you in that was last used by Dior couture that’s on a nipped waist blue blazer and a navy dress with a passementerie collar,” he said, noting that he’s now traveling to and working directly with a fabric mill in Como in Italy to source his fine fabrics.

In addition to that bit of lace, he sprinkled some sparkle on net skirts that can be worn flat (and styled over pants, perhaps), or with a horsehair tulle layer. In line with the season’s minimalist mood were sleek silk crepe column gowns and skirts with subtle fringe trims, styled with crystal rope belts. And for the next-gen clients Lippes is hoping to reach? Embellished bra tops.

Of the collection, Lippes said, “It was a little out of my comfort zone, which is a good thing.”
