Robert Geller presented a blast from the past.
The collection successfully tested Geller’s limits by mixing his signature style of loose knits and giving them a blast from the past with a reminiscence of the 60‘s. The collection consisted of strong tailored clothing including jackets and trousers which had a neutral based palette with dabbles of navy blue and wine.
The 1960’s were a time of civil rights and equality which Geller thoroughly explored as well as translating it into modern day fashion. The palette is very dark and gloomy, but the collection was not completely bogged down with theme of the 60’s being taken literally, there were the big and bold aspects which we can see from the “white noise” clothes.
Although Geller jumped into New York fashion week with this outstanding collection, his daring edge doesn’t stop there, the use of “white noise” prints didn’t fit the collection and created a bold impression. Geller sure knows how to make a statement with these prints.
For us at PAUSE we loved the theme of 60’s politics that Geller has explored with fashion and how he has used the “white noise” print to make a statement in his collection, we particularly liked the two piece tailored trousers and the fitted jumper.
