robert-geller-mens-fudge-magazine-japan-2009-main

May’s issue of Japanese mag Men’s Fudge has put the spotlight on Robert Geller, a man who’s taken New York fashion to unique aspirational heights. Since coming to the United States from his native Germany in order to study fashion, Geller has become a fashion representative of New York. “Taking a base of strength and romanticism, a very manly style, I add the fine details of art and music. Strength alone is not enough, and soft sensitivity by itself is not enough. The sensation of mixing both is what’s important.”

With a warm, wondrous spontaneity infusing his work, British-born Mark Borthwick is revered for his personal style of photography. For Mykita‘s 2009 campaign, he integrated elements of fashion, architecture, and design to develop a uniquely personal and intuitive approach. In March, he used his residence in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn as the canvas for Mykita’s campaign and the finished product was exceptional. The campaign even features some of his friends and family.

We don’t know whether we’re more impressed by Mykita’s 2009 collection Borthwick’s work. You be the judge.
