The attention of aficionados may have just been diverted to London (and rightly so, this season should prove to be another sizeable step for London-based menswear), I’m still fawning over some of what went down in New York. Robert Geller, one of NY’s triumvirate of finest fashion-makers for men (along with Patrik Ervell and Phillip Lim), produced another stand-out collection.

Mixing ostentatious, statement-making fur stoles, the archetypal dandy pattern of pinstripe and a palette of Fall/Winter-appropriate but far from lacklustre colours, Geller further refined his vision of modern menswear while still borrowing heavily from the tradition of the simultaneously outré and understated.
Still, I could be seeing it all through the rose-tined (or, more accurately, monochrome) lens of photographer Zachary Bako who documented the backstage madness from the outset, rendering a much more artful and poignant version of the prep-mayhem. I may not have made it across the pond but this photo-doc makes the fact that bit more bearable.
