Celebrating his 10th year anniversary, Robert Geller presented his AW17 collection at New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Titled “Love and War” – a reflection of the divisive political climate – the range sees military and revolt inspiration while at the same time, provide a sense of optimism.

The show kicked off with U2’s “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and audiences quickly understood that Geller meant business with his political reflection. Napoleonic-inspired epaulettes, razor sharp vests and outerwear were ubiquitous on the runway as were camouflage printed jackets and trousers.

A double breasted waxed cotton coat that comes in grey and olive green emphasise militia while cashmere sweatshirts and trousers are paired with the hint of preparedness to march. To tie in the discordant frustration, models wore neoprene face masks and scuba hoods which, on the one hand, evoked the imminent while on the other hand, accentuated Geller’s stylised looks.

Like the SS17 season, the brand collaborates with Common Projects on a combat sneaker that comes in black, brown and burgundy as well as trekking shoes in navy and charcoal. Casio G Shock watches were also worn during the show.

The concept of protective and protest inspired gear evokes a strong sense of political spirit in this collection.  The muted colours were peppered with pops of tangerine, indigo and pink – which appeared on gloves finger tips – and soft tailoring gives the garments a sublime silhouette. Under Geller’s adept hands, the AW17 line sees his romantic signature prevail and everything seems alright again.
