So, unsurprisingly, essays on and Godard and ‘counter-cinema’ and German literature are not conducive to forming thoughts/musings on the latest menswear showings. Still, I had to snatch some time between watching Vivre Sa Vie and charity shopping later (cannae wait!) to convey somewhat my utter elation regarding Robert Geller’s (a favourite of mine) FW09 collection. Leather, impressively large knits and evening details galore, this was truly spectacular. Add to that the general vampiric ambience, a spare (as if drained of life) runway and the appearance of Taylor Fuchs and I’m sold.
Anyone else revelling in this Jack the Ripper vibe so popular for FW09?
