We've just returned from a quick backstage interview and runway show by designer Adam Lippes, and now we're back at the Altman Building for Karen Walker. Adam's show, per usual, brought out his friends and colleagues, and, (as we said last season) the best dressed crowd in town. This season, Adam was inspired by, among other things, the color chart exhibit that premiered at the MoMa earlier this summer. So, we saw neons galore and some truely remarkable combinations in texture. Adam also premiered his own shoe collection which will go on sale with the Spring merchandise. Last season's collection was inspired by the Berkshires and this season, though entirely different, still calls up that beautiful, relaxed ease that Adam fans seek in his designs.
