ROBERT GELLER F/W 2015
ON THE FENCE
As enthusiastic followers of New York menswear designer Robert Geller, we were extremely excited to be covering his Fall/Winter collection at Pier 59 Studios. The show was a sensation, as models walked a long runway backed by a chain-link fence, while Echo and The Bunnymen’s “Nocturnal Me” blasted loudly. Key looks for the 1920’s Olympic fencing wear inspired collection included cropped pleated trousers, mock necks, elegant wool overcoats, parkas with large collars, broad horizontal stripes, wife beaters, suspenders, netted gloves and layers, lots of layers. Though the hues remained characteristic of Fall, there was an occasional burst of color. For example, there was a terrific red water color spatter shirt and scarf set, as well as an oversized orange mock neck top. The entire collection was incredibly handsome and featured on the best runway models, including Benjamin Jarvis, Baptiste Radufe, and “It Boy” newcomers Mats Van Snippenberg and Charlie James. And, we also live for the avant-garde orange/red streaks on the slicked back men’s hairstyles. Photography Alexander Thompson.
