Robert Geller - Spring 2011 - Review

For Spring 2011, Robert Geller has produced one of his most wearable and beautiful collections to date. While Mr. Geller always provides intrigue on the runway with everything from fur chubbies to graphic black and white pinstripe pants in past collections, this season he managed to supply creativity, mostly in the form of expert styling and a few statement looks, as well as wearability within the individual pieces.

Beautiful leathers, for example, came in classic blacks as well as maroons, supplying looks for both the fashion risk takers that have come to covet Mr. Geller's collections, as well as the conservative customers that look for more basic garments with fine design.

The palette consisted of mostly maroons, army greens, and khakis, colors that are both on trend and long lasting in a man's wardrobe. My favorite looks included an oatmeal colored cardigan over a green jumpsuit, a denim work shirt paired with faded jeans and a military parka, as well as a green zip-up vest over a simple white tee and cuffed khakis. While they may sound rudimentary (save the jumpsuit), Mr. Geller finds a way, whether it is with an elaborate scarf or simply just unparalleled design prowess, to make his clothes look anything but ordinary.
