Adam Lippes has recently hired a distributor in Japan; his business is expanding. The new relationship got him thinking: Though he’s never been to the country, he’s long harbored an interest in its culture, from the furniture to the food. Why not celebrate it in a collection? Why not, indeed. The obsessiveness for detail associated with Japan lines up well with Lippes’s own—see the vintage Japanese buttons he’s collected to accessorize his sharp tailoring and shirting, each one delicately hand-painted in enamel.
