Robert Geller Spring 2015: Relaxed, modern basics

Robert Geller has gone back to basics for his Spring 2015 menswear collection – in a good way. Stripped of any over-the-top cuts or complications, the comfort and modernity of Geller’s clothes was certainly helped by the clean color palette of lilac, beige, navy, black and white, with some red thrown in for the daring. Throughout the collection, Geller also showed variations of a long knit tunic paired with slim ankle-baring pants.

But even then, a monochrome bordeaux-red outfit consisting of a crewneck sweatshirt, grosgrain shorts and matching socks had a casual subtlety that one would not expect from such a statement color. A raw brushstroke print was employed on several pieces throughout the collection, but not to any jarring effect. In mauve and grey on a neoprene top, tucked into loose beige dress pants and worn with zippered black derbys (one of two pairs of shoes resulting from a collaboration between Geller and cult favorite Common Projects; the other was a suede slip-on style), the overall look remained light and relaxed.
