On February 11th, Robert Geller, a designer inspired by the painterly composition of Luchino Visconti’s cinematography, presented his Fall/Winter 2011 Collection at Exit Art during New York’s Fashion Week. The color palette reflects the work seen in Visconti’s rich cinematography. Deep clays, mauves and charcoals reflect the majesty of aged film, while shades of satin black, sand and slate emulate the level of sophistication that is apparent in Visconti’s actors.

No two menswear collections are ever really the same—that much is true. But generally, they can be categorized into two distinct groups: the ones that tell a specific story from a particular time (carefully sewn and embellished into the fabric) and those that just look good coming down a runway. And though we may still enjoy the later, it’s the collections with that aforementioned story that leave a longer-lasting impression, and for Spring/Summer 2011, Robert Geller’s collection did just that.
