I really liked the show. He did reuse some ideas, like the mesh and hats and dip-dye sweatshirt, but I think those things have all worked for him in the past and they're becoming signatures of his. It felt consistent to me, like the same guy from spring now dressing for fall. (Here's what he said:
"Last season, Robert Geller used hats as an accessory and it carried on into his Fall 2012 collection. According to Geller, there is a simple reason for repeating this detail: men repeat details with their wardrobes." http://www.pier59studiosblog.com/
) Also, if you look at the fit of the sweaters and pants it felt like a continuation of spring, where he was toying with the silhouette. I think that makes sense. You don't start bringing in new ideas in one collection and just abandon them in the next; you keep refining them. I do think the styling went a bit overboard at times. Sometimes a clean look is enough, and you don't need a jacket over another jacket
I really liked the trousers in the collection. I don't think he showed a single pair of jeans, but I didn't miss them. I'm sure they'll be back at some point, but I was happy to see the tailored wool pants and baggy lounge pants used more. And the blazers were all dope. I want the blazer from the first look so bad, and one of those heavy wool sweaters with short sleeves. Those are so good for layering. The fabrics in general looked really good. Lots of beefy wool and tweed and waxed cotton.
