Aimed to be an elegant yet casual take on classic athletic wear, German-born New York-based designer Robert Geller introduces the “SECONDS” collection for Spring/Summer 2012. Geller has garnered himself an impressive resume in recent years including 2009 GQ’s Best New Menswear Designer in America and a recipient of the 2011 CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear. This premium line sees the designer utilizing premium cotton textiles that are directly sourced from select Japanese mills onto a number of cut and sew garments including shirts, sweatshirts, zip-ups, hooded pullovers and sweatpants. Each muted piece make for a good styling component to bolder garments as it delivers an innovative color-blocking aesthetic.
