Having already previewed the Robert Geller Fall/Winter 2009 Collection from the runway here is a very interesting look book that provides a really interesting angle. The former Marc Jacobs intern has gone on to do great things since beginning his own label in 2007 with a really minimal and elegant aesthetic. “For Fall/Winter 2009, Geller’s collection began with an interest in the imperial city of Vienna at the turn of the century. The color palette is somber, ranging from a dusty rose to a deep black, with touches of Fuchsia, plum and a powerful ultramarine”.
“The fabrics are quite textural and seem to carry a sense of history. Robert used Mohair and alpaca for the knitwear and most of the cut and sew is made from softened Japanese cotton jersey. The outerwear consists of many exclusively developed fabrics, such as Boiled wools, cotton canvases hand painted with a thin layer of polyurethane and a beautiful diamond textured jacquard used in the suiting. Robert also used rubberized denim and dip-died cottons for the more casual garments in the collection”.
Thanks to this hearts on fire for the info.
