New York Fashion Week Men’s: Robert Geller Spring 2017 Menswear
German-born American fashion designer. Robert Geller presented his SS17 Menswear collection during New York Fashion Week: Men’s at Skylight Clarkson Square.
In Fall 2007, Robert Geller menswear debuted at New York Fashion Week. In February 2009, Geller received the GQ/CFDA Best New Menswear Designer Award.
For his latest offering, Geller once again embraced his German roots. The collection was a mix of high and low, loud and reflective, merry and melancholy, it worked perfectly.
