At the end of his fall 2017 show in February, Robert Geller took a bow wearing a T-Shirt with the word “Immigrant” across its front. It was a deliberate statement, not just on this politically-charged climate but also on the immense contribution the German native – and many of his peers from outside the U.S. – have made on American menswear. Geller brings a sense of Berlin cool to the New York runways. Spring, for example, was called “Geniale Dilletanten” and culled from the German capital’s wild 1980s culture of squatters, DYI, and the nascent club and music scene for inspiration. Sartorially, he translated this with leopard prints, stripes and neon touches. Fall’s “love and war” collection, meanwhile, riffed on the divisive nature of our times, referencing militarization, protest and revolt. It included Napoleon-inspired epaulettes and combat sneakers with Common Project. The show marked Geller’s 10th anniversary in business, and as far as milestones go, this was one to remember.
