Coming off a stellar year which saw the German-born fashion designer nominated for the CFDA Swarovski Award, Robert Geller continues to hone his craft within the realm of contemporary menswear. The Malcolm recently caught up with the former Marc Jacobs apprentice, for an interview covering the many facets of his internationally renown career and eponymous label.
…Geller on the influence of German culture.
I see my work as partly reflecting Europe and partly reflecting New York and I think this blend can be seen in my design. The elegance and romance is very German to me, I get a lot of that from my life there, but the tough, edginess of the collection is very much New York.
…on his biggest influences.
Having moved quite often growing up, I attended many international schools which has taught me to understand and appreciate all types of people – a very important trait when running a global business.
…must have items.
Underwear and socks – the beginnings of most great outfits.
