    The price isn't unexpected. I just think it's much for what it is.

    RO has always been very expensive. That's part of the appeal and it being the whole image of the brand. I don't know why, but RO being expensive makes more sense to me than Geller being so. Maybe it has something to do with the quality that has been brought up heer a couple of times. Haven't Geller also increased his prices in recent seasons?

    Checked out that one from W+H. It's a wool/cashmere blend and is not as plain, which to some extent can justify a (expected) high price.

    Some really nice stuff for 2013. I didn't like ANY of the leather clothing. There's a lot of stuff there I would wear.

    I'm not entirely sure that 'flat' rubbery looking leather stuff is going to be produced.

    It was very . . . . weird.

    Yeah, I don't think that stuff is going to be produced. It would surprise me.

    That w+h jacket is nice wish it didn't have the horizontal quilting, but I guess the down would get clumped otherwise

    Like a lot of the knits (sweaters & shorts).
    Don't really like the leather under armor or the cp loafers.

    I hear that this spring collection was inspired by the photographer Sarah Moon and the beach. leather, rubber, and all that stuff.

    Need these glasses!

    not to beat a dead horse, but SSENSE has a couple dipdyes up in 46, 48. excited to see mine!

    the SS runway looked nice, very much a geller collection though I really liked the bursts of blue and the strange scuba looking leather outerwear

    Also saw that he was heavily inspired by the Tony Scott flick "The Hunger", hence the Bowie-esque glasses. very cool stuff.

    I haven't been following Geller for long, but I think it's a pretty strong collection.
    Makes me think of Léon. Probably only because of the glasses.

    The wider trousers with the faint stripes and patterns look great. Also feeling those short sleeve shirts without collar and hidden placket.
    I like the look of calf-high tan socks and loafers here, but it would no doubt look ridiculous IRL.
