Over four seasons of re-launching the brand, the Adam Lippes Pre-Fall 2014 Collection has carved out a niche for itself when it comes to subtle, sophisticated sportswear.

Appealing to the customer abroad, the first Pre-Fall collection is chock-full of refined fabrics that tempt the touch. Consisting of enveloping, reversible capes cut from ultra-soft double-faced cashmere and eveningwear items including cocktail dresses, full palazzo trousers and bracelet-sleeve coats, the collection has everything you need to move into the colder season in style.

It's loosely inspired by Balthus' paintings of young women in uniforms where Lippes channels a schoolgirl vibe with a raw sophistication. This is evident in a crepe suspender dress and a cozy gray crewneck sweater with pleated leather skirts.
