the incomparable robert geller finally gets his props
He had stiff competition. The Swarovski Menswear designer of the year award is given each year to a young and emerging American designer who has had the biggest impact on their field through their talent and creativity in their most recent fall or spring collection. Given that this was the year of Alexander Wang (who we highlighted yesterday) and Phillip Lim, whose euro 70’s vibe has been pasted on every magazine imaginable – Gellar was truly the unexpected underdog.
His latest collection (see the looks below) has a mad hatter rocker vibe that is a little tongue in cheek, a little bit playful and most notably takes traditionally feminine elements like ribbon belts, ruffled blouses, garders and more and somehow weaves them into a look that is masculine, hard and effortlessly cool. I really do love his stuff, and obviously I’m not the only one. Check out his stuff below and on his website HERE. Congrats Robert Geller on your well deserved recognition!
