If you're a buyer then you get to be up close with everything later when you are making your buy, take photos then, if you're a spectator then you have no reason to take photos or videos, just watch the fucking show. I mean I understand "documenting" it or whatever and obviously as somebody who can't be there in thankful for the the video but in the background of every photo/video literally NOBODY is just watching and taking it all in.

Can you link the show, thanks.

Sadly this is the case with most live events these days (concerts, sporting events, fireworks), let alone a high fashion runway show.

It's solid. How many ways can you make a black bomber stand out? The metal clasps are a detail only Geller would come up with. Fabric is great. See how Nomad styles it. The price is the price, but I don't see a reason this wouldn't be prices differently than the Sebastian from last season, for example

I wasn't saying it was priced unreasonably, I was saying I would think that would be the reason it didn't sell as quick as the other two bombers this season.
With that said, if they were all priced the same I would have still bought the other two before the clasp bomber.

I like Geller, but saying that fireman clasps are a detail that only Geller would come up with is a stretch. Dries, Ralph, and plenty others have put firemans clasps on their jackets.

Sure others have used clasps. Just like lots of people use zippers or buttons, but it's not a detail in isolation - it's the combination of details.

I still don't get what makes Geller bombers so special, other than he once used that Brick color. Your average Dries bomber blows away any Geller bomber I have seen.

 "If Dries van Noten is an oil painting, Ann Demeulemeester a black and white photograph, Martin Margiela a photocopy of a black and white photograph, then Robert Geller is a Polaroid."

Did anyone else immediately think of this quote when they saw the Polaroids on the runway? 

 

Or any of the other times Geller has referenced polaroids in interviews http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/11/fashion/poloroid-instant-camera-possesed.html?_r=0 and http://www.styleforum.net/t/341840/an-interview-with-robert-geller-part-2-of-2-cloak-dip-dye-sweaters-and-polaroids

Also for anyone who hasn't google translated it yet, "Aus lauter liebe" apparently means "Out of pure love."

Dries pretty much blows everyone out of the water and its not saying much considering Geller has said many times over he would like to one day end up in a place where Dries is now

Understood. I am still new to evaluating Geller and trying to appreciate his work better. Notwithstanding, my original comment may have come off as overly aggressive.

Hmmm...I've found the Dries men collection less interesting than the women's. Also, the fit on a lot of Dries stuff just seems weird unless you're 6'1 and 140lbs. Geller for me is much more approachable and wearable but there's an evolving point of view that I find compelling as well. Fabric, fit, and details are stand outs for Geller (except for knits which are oddly consistently uninteresting)
post #9913 of 10832
I wholeheartedly agree there. I haven't really been interested in much knitwear from the team for about 3 or more seasons now. Hoping for some surprises when the stores pick up some pieces. Otherwise I am just going to keep rocking old dope shit.
post #9914 of 10832
I sometimes wonder if he has stopped focusing on knits because whenever there were good ones they never sell till 50%+ off
It's a bummer that they're always MIC now but I can understand why

I have several great ones, and several more I wish I would have gotten/could find

had this in black, have it in white now


never saw this anywhere, kinda boring I guess but it's something I'd wear


this is much better irl, have it in black


got this in the khaki


have this sample


this in the offwhite/olive/red


this one always seemed cool to me but I never jumped on it


styling seems a bit off here but I love this sweater



Excuse me for reminiscing a bit inlove.gif hopefully they'll come back around soon
