Robert Geller Tries to Recapture His Youth

Robert Geller’s Fall 2011 models were to-the-manor-born gone a bit seedy. A gentleman wore preppy cardigans and a dress shirt paired with motorcycle boots and metal studded gloves. Many wore multiple scarves, — creating an effect as thick as a lion’s mane — or a cowl-like, hood-scarf number that Geller didn't have a name for. But the designer dubbed baggy long-underwear bottoms (worn as outerwear, of course) "lounging pants." “They’re not meant to be worn under anything,” he said. "I think they’re great to pair with a shirt and tie and blazer.”

Geller's blue- and white-collar clash was inspired by Luchino Visconti films. "He always uses luxury and wealth and then shows the fucked-up underbelly," Geller explained. "He often has older men longing for their youth and falling for young men or women." The designer nodded to his own teenage years with pink-tipped blonde models. "It represents youth to me," he said. "When I was younger I tried out having different colors of my hair. When you mature, you don’t really do that anymore."
