Robert Geller Spring Summer 2017

Robert Geller has recently rolled out his spring summer 2017 menswear collection, which can be viewed here . The collection continues to develop themes familiar to Geller fans, including his signature obsessions with youth culture of days gone by. He places less emphasis on his normally broody color palette, instead choosing to play up the optimism of the 1980’s german music scene and lifestyle. Bold splashes of blue, yellow, and other bright accents harken back to the youthful bliss of young German squatters living the authentic punk lifestyle.


Geller continues to explore elegant, draping fabrics, and several eye catching velvet pieces are sure to be popular this season. He features a variety of jumpsuits and other work-wear inspired pieces, reimagined in a more luxurious fabric and cut. There are a variety of animal prints in the collection, done up in a variety of tonal patterns. In this sense, the black-on-black leopard print is a a more toned down piece in the collection.


Some of the suiting looks are also heavily retro-inspired, with the wide structured shoulders and bare chests harkening back to the 1980s appropriation of tailoring by European youth. Icons like David Bowie and others are famous for taking this highly masculine cut of suit and contrasting it with more feminine silhouettes and details.


Geller is often renowned for his eclectic and historical references, and this collection is no different. Fans of Geller will be pleased, and his outerwear and denim is sure to be a staple in fashionable circles for years to come.

Fall Up with These Autumn Fashion Statements

Fall is a time for intense foliage, cooler weather, pumpkins, apple picking, baking, and fashion. Most will confess that they dress one million times better in the fall than they do in the summer, but this can be attributed to being comfortable, not too hot, and not too cold. Like anything, though, there are tips to elevate the style of fall that are inexpensive and totally stellar.


Tassel Earrings


These fairly daring accessories are stylish without being too over the top. Doubling as both a casual and dressy element, tassel earrings come in a plethora of colors, lengths, and volumes. Wear them with your favorite sweater and jeans or fall dress and scarf.


Fleece Tops


Designed to keep you warm but not too warm, these tops should be worn often. Coming in every pattern and color, these tops are ideal for any fall festivity.


Faux-Shearling Vest


Sometimes, an outfit is missing something. If you are wearing a plain sweater and slacks and do not want to overdo it with the jewelry, throw one of these vests on to add some sophistication to an otherwise dull outfit.


Graphic Tees


Though these can be worn at all times of the year, few things are greater than t-shirts full of pumpkins, witches, and catchy autumn sayings like “Fall into fall.”


Metallic Blouses


Metallic is huge this year and works well to add that glimmer to the season that is punctuated with some fairly dreary points.




Though once popular in the 90s, this piece of jewelry has made a huge comeback in 2016. Consider a black, red, brown, or burnt orange choker to add some flair to your seasonal ensemble.


Non-Hoodie Sweatshirts


Few people can get away with wearing a hooded sweatshirt each day, despite how comfortable they are. Consider buying a sweatshirt that does not have the hood attached to make your snug outfit a little trendy and a bit more acceptable to wear every day.

Armani Switches To Fur-Free Fashion

Armani is a fashion icon across the world. They have long turned heads and made news when it comes to fashion. That’s because they are always the trendiest and are big on making the boldest moves. Often, their fashion lines shock people in the best way possible. It was recently that perhaps they made the biggest announcement yet. They have decided to stop using fur in their lines. He released a statement on Tuesday that basically said that using fur is cruel and unnecessary.

His announcement came with some shock value but overall there was positive feedback. The upcoming Autumn and Winter collection will be fur-free and many organizations were quick to chime in with their support. The Chairman for the Fur Free Alliance spoke of how this makes a statement that fashion icons can still make great clothing without resorting to using fur. The Humane Society International also chimed in saying that killing animals for their fur is never fashionable.

According to an article in Reddit, Armani is not the first to switch over to a fur-free fashion line. It’s actually a trend that has been catching on for a while. Although, it’s hard to say what brought this announcement about. It could be because other fashion icons have made the switch to synthetic long before and haven’t had much negative feedback. It could also be because of the countless protesters and letters that Armani received, asking them to switch. No matter what the reasoning, it seems that this is the way of the future for fashion tycoons. Now, it’s up to them to keep at this promise after the next two fashion lines debut.

Kanye West Gets on Board with Adidas

There is a great feeling in the air for Kanye West and the union for Adidas. Kanye has been trying to get people to take a look at what he has been doing with fashion for a long time. He has the sneakers and he has his own clothing design, but there have been a lot of snags in getting the clothing line off the ground. This is why there is a lot of buzz about the connection with Adidas.

The thing that has made this possible is the Kanye West popularity of shoes. There are people that are going to check the shoes on eBay and they will see that these shoes are selling for as much as $1,000. This is the resell value. The original price was around $750. In most cases these was a limited edition so people would buy as many as possible and resell for more.

Fans of the Kanye shoes will not have to worry as much about the shoes selling out because now there is talk of stores. There are people that are going to take interest in the shoes just because of the person that is linked to the shoes. At one time West was talking about dropping the business deal with Adidas, but things are working out in his favor. The company wants him because he is a lightning rod for controversy, and he sells clothes because he is such a powerful entertainer.

What Kanye wanted was a relationship with Nike. The money was not right so this did not happen. Adidas, however, has been more open to the creative process and creative control of West.
