Lippes "silent-obsession" for lightness and movement, were for the S/S 2016 inspired by two great artists, each from different art-sphere. Prints and the colour palette were almost literally inspired by Agnes Martin, the American abstract painter, translated in pleated asymmetric silk dress, artist´s smock-coat, a navy twill jumpsuit and bleached denim. The less obvious inspiration came from Nina Simone and hers hidden-sensual-elegant allure, seen in the blue and white cotton shirt or silk hand-macraméd pieces. Everything in the name of his mantra; that he doesn´t want the clothes to wear the woman.
