while the tones of the robert geller a/w15 collection are sombre, the variation in silhouette is anything but. the designer cleverly centers the theme around innovatively proportioned trousers. the variety of pant fits, fabrics and lengths are not only a key feature, but also define multiple decades in one sharp procession. we're talking wool, cotton, jersey and satin - cut wide, long, cropped, roomy, slim and tapered. and despite the amount of options, each appropriation remains distinctive in contrast to its components. amplified pleated trousers are finished with cropped, tapered legs. high-waisted stove pipes with button down pockets also taper off with cropped legs, as well as fatigue drill trousers, sweat pants with deep pockets and draw strings cuffed in ribbed bands.
paneled mohair leggings, suit pants and wide legged sweats also add to the long list of leggings. shirting is luxe in rich ochre tones and bold prints in addition to pinstriped button downs and longer, tunic style flannels. outerwear is a sophisticated take on traditional cuts. drop shoulder wool coats with sharp and fur lined collars are blended with tailored bomber jackets in multi fabric combinations as well as blazers in mohair and fine wool. in tandem with the a/w 2015 collection, robert geller has again collaborated with shoe shamans, common projects on a slick line of footwear for the season. all in all the collection delivers a hybrid, 1940s mobster vibe with a dash of 1980s angst. think humphrey bogart meets the breakfast club... for lunch at les deux magots.
