Robert Geller’s Fall/Winter 2011 show, presented yesterday evening at Exit Art Gallery, was a study in tough luxury, refinement, and restraint.  Drawing inspiration from the Italian filmmaker Luciano Visconti, Geller put forth a collection filled with leather outwear, rumpled pants, and heavy metal accessories.  A palette of dusty mauve, tarnished gold, and charcoal was pervasive throughout, infusing the clothing with Visconti’s old world cinematic vision.

Standouts of the collection included the leather trenches and blazers that opened the show, a sand colored wool coat shown with a studded belt, a faded skinny blue jean, a two tone linen blazer, and a black shearling coat.  The model’s hair was either streaked with pink dye or obscured by an ultra cool scarf hood hybrid that was shown in a range of neutrals. Overall Geller’s fall outing was a luxe and wearable collection with dramatic touches that did not overpower the unexpected details and design features that make his clothing so great season after season.
