Adam Lippes was inspired by the energy of his West Chelsea neighbourhood for his Spring 2012 collection.

It must be a beautiful, vibrant place because the presentation gave us feminine pieces with classic tailored shapes.

Pantsuits and trench coats were given modern twists with floral sleeves for the former and sleeveless and sheer for the latter.

I loved the drop-waist dresses with the flounced skirts. They took the runway in several forms: black and white polka dots, delicate cream embroidery and lavender and white polka dots.

Capes, satin pantsuits, neon sweatpants pants with an ivory embroidered sweatshirt, sleeveless jumpsuits and fully embellished shift dresses were served on a colour palette of mostly white, ivory and pink.

Adam also presented gorgeous polka dot shirts, pants and a cape which all had a Pyjama-like feel to them.

The stand out piece was a red Sergeant Pepper jacket paired with a simple white lace dress.

Key accessories included gorgeous Manolo Blahnik sandals in a variety of colours and Selima Optique sunglasses.

Favourites: Butterfly embellished dress and floral print strapless dress
