Having waxed lyrical regarding Robert Geller a while back I was highly delighted to find a succinct yet informative interview conducted by Robert Cordero in a recent issue of JC Report. Geller recalls how his innovation in the realm of menswear began with the interest of a foreign investor and also tells of his most intriguing sources of inspiration including mid-19th century Prussia.
In the AW 0809 collection his inspiration is evident. Thick, sizeable knits, robust leathers, heavy military coats and don’t-fuck-with-me denim are fitting for the modern counterparts of the soldiers of the Schleswig Wars.

Pretty harsh for my taste. Like a vampire church executioner.
^ Nice, and sadly, v. accurate description. The shift in aesthetic between SS and AW is a little too literal here!/Cillian.
I quite appreciate this. It reminds me of gareth pugh’s autumn/winter collection, which I just can’t get enough of.Also, my long hair may be making a return, slowly, but surely.
I had thought that the emo-face was going off from the men’s fashion
makemorem: huzzah! *rejoices in anticipation of the return of the hair*enc: this is precisely why I love Geller’s work. He manages to combine classic concepts and design techniques with a more forward aesthetic. I much preferred his SS 08 collection though./Cillian.
I thaught EMO fashion is not in fashion eny more,they look scarey 🙁
