Robert Geller drew on his German roots for the Spring/Summer 2017 collection that he debuted during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. The line was an eclectic and youthful take on the early 80s Berlin music scene, drawing from creative influences of German artists and bands including Nina Hagen, Einstürzende Neubauten and Palais Schaumburg. The clothes worked on an interesting spectrum and permeated a wild, playful spirit that was counterbalanced with soft and reflective features. There was a hint of social commentary present in the collection since Berlin’s artistic landscape and social unrest was very much influenced by the squatter culture. Robert Geller strayed from the darker side of this, instead focusing on the youth optimism through grafitti-esque prints and a bright color palate that consisted of hints of fuschia, lime and watermelon. The collection was a cohesive representation of Berlin’s Neue Welle art and music scene and ultimately came together beautifully. Check out the SS17 designs in the gallery above.
