And sometimes amidst all of the new and different at Coterie one realizes that perpetual favorites stay in that category for a reason. Coutorture favorite Adam Lippes had a serene booth at Pier 94 (complete with delightful sales staff, something we can't say for many designers we visited) where we were able to browse his Spring 2009 collection in more depth handling the textiles, playing with combinations and otherwise seeing the detail work a runway show can never fully showcase. With his keen eye for color the collection beautifully balanced vibrant yellows, pinks, and blues with more subtle pastels to impressive effect. All in all, another impressive effort from this rising star!
