ADAM Resort 2009

With a career shaped under the tutory of classics masters Ralph Lauren & most notably Oscar de la Renta (where he became the youngest person ever to hold the position of creative director for a leading international fashion house), Adam Lippes is the one to watch -- the quintessential rising star of American design.
Lippes started Adam+Eve in 2004 with his mentor's blessing -- de la Renta even invested in the new company. In 2006, the casual-luxe T-shirt & basics line got a huge boost when Oprah, a fan, tapped Lippes for the Couch of Destiny, thus making him almost-famous, almost overnight. Following his appearance on Oprah, the label's website logged 50,000 hits & had to be temporarily shut down for 12 hours. Funnily enough, Lippes also started getting complaints about the brand name. Apparently when web users tried to search for his brand, they kept getting led to a chain of sex shops! So that his creations don't end up being confused with clothing of a more sinister nature, Lippes has engaged in trail separation & his label is now simply 'Adam'.
With quality fabrics, fluid movement, & sophisticated looks that stay great while you're on the go, Adam clothing has found fast friends amongst fashionistas & industry buyers alike.
Looks like Adam Lippes truly deserved the benediction he got from Queen Oprah :)
