Photographer Sarah Moon’s moody, painterly images of beaches were a touchstone for Robert Geller this season, provoking a less romantic, darker interpretation of the designer’s layered, deconstructed look. The seaside theme lent itself to neoprene capelets and leggings, the latter worn under wide-leg shorts embellished in brushstroke prints. The figure-hugging, rubber base layer was set off by tailored vests, low-slung mesh tank tops and oversize tribal necklaces. It’s a specific vision of men’s wear to be sure — and perhaps difficult to pull off head to toe in everyday life — but there’s a depth of vision to Geller’s work that sets it apart from the more practical, merchandised collections of his peers.
