Great sale on Gilt Groupe (ADAM and Helmut Lang)

Some of you will remember ADAM by its former name "Adam+Eve". Its designer, Adam Lippes, is an up-and-coming designer to watch out for. He launched his company in 2004 and was inducted in 2007 as a member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Before that, he worked at Polo Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta.

The silk pleated V neck dress (shown in freesia) is a stunning fashion piece with quality pleating. It is also available in marigold on Gilt Groupe (until Mon 11/24 noon EST). It is a great investment because the prints and the black-and-white trends are big in coming seasons. The double collar jacket is equally well-engineered and regal. It won't fit everyone's style, but I love the quality and had to post it.

I love leather jackets, and I love pairing leather jackets up with cute dresses or skirts. Only last Friday, I got asked out for coffee by a stranger while shopping at the Grove in my pink Urban Outfitter dress and Versace leather jacket. Trust me, leather jackets are great investments and I've been dying for a brown leather jacket too. I posted the skirt because my mom once made me one very similar to it and I loved it to bits, wearing it to everything and everywhere.

If you missed this sale at Gilt, don't worry, you can shop ADAM at his site. Also, Helmut Lang goes on sale at Gilt Groupe at noon (EST) of Mon 11/24. If you love simple but refined fashion items with an interesting twist, you should certainly look to Helmut Lang. Even though the designer, Helmut Lang, himself has not been involved in the brand since 2005, the brand has been been producing minimalistic and deconstructivistic apparel since the 1980s and creative direction is now in good hands. That is, after Tokyo company, Link Theory, bought over the brand, they named Michael and Nicole Colovos, an American-New Zealand designer couple, who formerly had their own Los Angeles-based denim label Habitual, as creative directors for the new Helmut Lang.
