Reinventing menswear is no easy task, and this is what Robert Geller has done in the last few years with this modern, yet whimsical sensibilities. Utilizing high quality construction and minimal garments with his use of "modern dandy" Geller has gained a vast array of tastemakers, fans and pundits on the world stage. The German-born, New York raised designer had stints at both Marc Jacobs and Cloak before starting his namesake label in 2007.
"My whole existence, I've been trying to create beautiful things, and to do that takes a certain sensitivity. You can see that mood expressed in my creations."
The juxtaposition of Robert's masculinity and his more sensitive side came out when in talks about his family & wife. Its Robert's inherent ability to create things that are both rugged, yet emotive that makes his work powerful and puts him in a class of his own.
The Robert Geller brand has also helped breakdown down the barrier between streetwear and luxury fashion throughout employing immaculate tailoring and construction. This look has come to dominate the way guys dress around New York City, where drop-crotch sweatpants that were hand-sewn in Japan and fancy running shoes that aren't actually meant for running have taken over where raw denim and the Americana-craze left off. But in fashion (an industry where designers have to work at least six months to two years ahead), and in New York City (a place where buildings transmogrify from factories to DIY venues to Whole Foods in the blink of an eye), it's not about where you've been, but where you're going.
