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Geller is often renowned for his eclectic and historical references, and this collection is no different.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.
