A graduate of Cornell University, Adam Lippes began his career in fashion at Polo Ralph Lauren before moving to Oscar de la Renta, where he grew to be one of the youngest creative directors in the luxury fashion world.
In 2004, Mr. Lippes launched his eponymous label, ADAM, which took a new approach to classic American sportswear in a fresh, polished and feminine collection. The brand was distributed in three free standing retail stores, shopadam.com, and the finest retail partners in USA, Canada, the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. ADAM, with a dedicated following for both its fashion and basics, has been featured in every major publication, including W, Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Allure, and the NY Times. With multiple covers of Women’s Wear Daily and a feature segment on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Mr. Lippes, a member of the prestigious CFDA, was named one of the most important designers of today by Vanity Fair magazine.
In 2013, the Adam Lippes brand was launched, a collection of luxury sportswear anchored in classic elegance, refined fabrics and impeccable tailoring. Launched to critical acclaim for Fall 2013, the brand is focused on supporting and growing the luxury manufacturing facilities available in New York City.
Adam lives both in Soho, NYC as well the Berkshires, in Southwest Massachusetts.
