Moods in Solid Colors for Gustav Von Aschenbach: Robert Geller at NYFWM

Colorful vibrancy is my aspirin.

The phrase I have coined as a synonym for whenever I see Robert Geller‘s collection at New York Fashion Week Mens (NYFWM). For a bright dash of bright color, likely owing to the Indian heritage, gives me a sense of joy and optimism, always. His new project this season is named after a character in the German novel by Thomas Mann called Death in Venice, Gustav Von Aschenbach. This was to be a more commercial, attainable line than his traditional runway. Combined with a creatively designed set, it brought color to life.

Known for darker undertones like those of war or darkness, Geller always chooses color to represent his style, and this was no different. Mood enhancing tones of the doorway setup ensured that every monochrome or bold striped overall clad model was adjacent to a door that matched their hue, and hence their mood.

My favorite was obviously the oversized utilitarian style red jacket, paired with matching grey jumpsuit style loose fit cotton overalls in Japanese fabrics, a style replicated in all teal and all stone grey and black clothing too. It was an intriguing take on matching inners versus outerwear, a trend that could catch on like lightning. The contrasts included a jail stripe mustard and black oversized shirt with pants, which when replicated in red became an outfit I could embrace with joy, given my love for the hue. Another standout was the combination of mustard pants with a grey cardigan and off white tee.

Matching the moods with a series of doors created an ambiance that was definitely distinct, and evoked a sense of depth and knowledge. Overall, a solid series of cool, casual and flowing summer pieces in bold, monochrome colors that were probably the most expressive of pieces I had seen in a while.

It's always a good day to open a new door. @gustav_von_aschenbach @robertgeller #NYFWM
