Inspired by 1920’s Berlin and German Expressionist film, the Robert Geller Fall 2013 Collection presented a modern take on an era that can be as dark as it was golden. A collection full of drama and romance, it was styled to perfection, making it a wearable, daring dream for men of style substance. Twills, polyurethane tweeds and pigment-dyed knits were highlighted fabric features, where the color palette gave us hues of grey and the ever popular oxblood. Quilted shorts, oxblood leather belts, and bordeaux trousers were standout pieces, with necessary mention of the head a hand accessories.
The oversized black woolen hats in the collection drew an exaggerated parallel to the imagery found in Dr. Caligari’s films of the 1920’s, and you can’t talk about 1920’s expressionist film without depicting it in back and white. This was perfectly depicted with the black and white leather gloves, printed in both stripes and polka dots. The gloves, a very popular piece backstage, will surely do well in market – just like the entire collection.
