ADAM's tops, jackets and t-shirts are noted for their sumptuous quality – unsurprising, considering that company founder Adam Lippes cut his teeth at Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta. In 2004, Lippes launched ADAM at Saks Fifth Avenue with a collection of wearable yet luxurious cotton basics; since then, his label has evolved into a full sportswear collection of luxe knits defined by sexy, sophisticated tailoring. Lippes became a member of the prestigious CFDA in 2007, and in the same year Vanity Fair named him one of the most important young designers working today.
With the holiday season upon us, it’s time for a much-needed dose of ultra-feminine glamour. Your new must-haves await you in this collection of party-ready fashions from some of our best-loved brands. Think silky wrap dresses from Kate Middleton’s favorite, Issa London; pleated frocks and sharp suiting from <span>ADAM</span>, and more. This mix has plenty of festive looks made for decking the halls in style: Think leather trimmed sheaths, silky blouses, and printed blazers.
Want to score of-the-moment styles by some of your favorite designer names for less? This mix of essential separates, dresses, and accessories — by Bettye Muller, Rag & Bone, Butter, 7 for All Mankind, and more — makes dressing for the warm weather simple.
Designer Adam Lippes's lovely silhouettes and eye for detail have made him a favorite among Gilt's stylists, and it's easy to see why: Just look to this selection of lantern-sleeve blouses, embroidered shifts, and parachute skirts for proof. Whether rendered in versatile neutrals or vibrant hues (gold metallics; berry pinks), each piece will intrigue.
We’re all for sporting timeless silhouettes this season, but how about mixing things up a bit? Check out this selection of quintessential wardrobe staples, each with an unexpected twist. LBDs get a serious update here — draped satin frocks, bustier bandage dresses, and mod cashmere shifts. Basic mini skirts are anything but when wrapped, ruched, and covered in sequins. And if you thought you knew classic trousers, think again. You’ll find high-waisted styles in plum and metallic brown, wrought in bold-faced materials like leather, sateen, and wool herringbone.
