Robert Geller spring/summer 2017 collection juxtaposed structure and deconstruction. The collection was inspired by the young Berliners of the “wild eighties” where these young people strove for authenticity and held self expression and experimentation in the highest regard. Nearly every look paired fitted shirts, shorts and pants with deconstructed outerwear. Leopard prints and neon hues stood out and were perfectly complemented by the runway’s graffiti backdrop.
These bold prints and hues will definitely find their place off the runways. Geller demonstrated this through his choice of creating an industrial and stage decorated with graffiti and his savvy ensemble pairings. The leopard prints were always on brown or grey fabrics and the neon hues were found underneath grey blazers and bomber jackets. Thus proving you can experiment with new trends while remaining true to a classic style.
Finally, every look was either adorned with a fur pom pom or polaroid pictures hanging from safety pins bring depth to the outfits as well as an artistic edge. All in all, Robert Geller’s spring/summer 2017 collection will encourage millennials of New York City and Berlin alike to experiment in an artistic and fashionable way.
