Having considered the below, who couldn’t?
Gothicism is a notable trait of Burton’s, however, it’s not familiar territory for menswear designer Robert Geller who’s FW 08 09 collection proved he too could meddle in the dark arts. And meddle he did, quite well, might I add. What was predominantly macabre militarism was shot through with dandyism of the undead variety and some bikers akin to bats out of hell. Maybe I was too liberal with the hyperbole there, it wasn’t quite that extravagant but still there was a distinct tinge of gloom. The sole respite was the infrequent appearance of some sickly shade of “sulphur” which, frankly, I could have done without.
Still, hats off to the Goffs.
