NEW OLD WORLD
New York: Robert Geller’s often grounds his aesthetic in the idea of European aristocracy with a rebellious undertone. For F/W 11, the clash of the classes was inspired by the romantic decadence of Luchino Visconti’s films, and the resulting look was a mod-ish vagabond, who seemed a bit more refined than the dreamy poets of seasons past. A subtle Italian influence was felt in the double-breasted blazers with strong shoulders and tailored topcoats, while that dash of youthfulness we have come to expect from Geller – Kool-Aid-tipped hair and studded accessories – made for a fascinating contrast.
