In another life, the fashion designer could easily have been a decorator.
Designer Adam Lippes is widely known for his upscale, but totally comfortable aesthetic. His eponymous label includes the kind of under-the-radar, super-luxe items that we dream of building our wardrobe around, and while he’s a household name within the fashion industry, we had no idea he was such an interiors buff on the side. “The inspiration around the line comes back to refinement and sportswear,” he said of his label. “All of the inspiration for the collections comes from interiors. I think I’m sort of a frustrated interior designer.”
We visited his Washington Square Park townhouse a week before his NYFW presentation (which is taking place today!) to snoop through his (many, many insanely beautiful) collections, and pet his two matching labradoodles, all the while hearing exactly how he makes a space feel historic and lived in, even when you’ve only been there a year or two.
