The rarer, presumably (even) more expensive, and in theory more collectible and consequently more likely to gain in value items will be presented to the Keep calm and save the planet shirt What’s more,I will buy this market later. Some models wore cast metal rivets, or carried hatches and axes also cast in metal: It was unclear whether these “accessories” would be sold too. What does seem likely, however, is that if you purchase a pair of black Sterling Ruby blurry twig-print yoga pants (they were worn under a long, color-patched hand-knit cardigan), you might be making a fashion investment that truly accrues. When asked about the difference between making fashion and the production of art, Ruby said: “In many respects, outside of the logistics of putting together the collection and the garments in the kind of production of it I don’t see it as any different to making a sculpture or painting.” He added of making objects that are worn: “I kinda find that more rewarding. Not that I mind if somebody has a painting and hangs it on the wall, but it is fun to think of something going out into the world, and moving, and being something for people to see.” And will this be an every-season thing? “I think 15 minutes ago I may not have been able to say yes or no, but now…yes! It might not be seasonal, but I will do it again.” America’s most interesting new fashion designer is also one of its most prolific and successful contemporary artists. We were privileged to see those two worlds meet in a manger in Florence tonight. The experimentation doesn’t stop there. For the first time in Geller’s career, he is using sequins on tanks, trousers, and shorts. “I wanted to get myself out of my comfort zone,” he explains. It’s a funny way of putting it; the backs of the sequin garments are actually made of nylon ripstop, so they are comfortable to sit in. Even with a fantastical mood haunting this season, amplified by wigs by Chrystoph Marten, Geller can’t help but be pragmatic. I have dressed for nearly 30 years now having begun when I was 15 when I started experimenting. It commenced with my sisters silky nylon panties and her nylon and lace slips, and continued to progress to bras, silky sheer stockings, skirts, blouses, dresses and high heel shoes.
Robert Geller is about to embark on a yearlong sabbatical to Portugal with his family, taking a pause from the Keep calm and save the planet shirt What’s more,I will buy this New York fashion world for a bit. The connection between Geller’s stepping back from the circus of fashion and his circus-themed Spring 2020 collection isn’t that direct he says he started to think of the circus and Sarah Moon’s hazy photographs on a flight last year but it’s hard not to draw a comparison. Even without the pomp and circumstance of a show, Geller is making some of American fashion’s most show-stopping menswear. As always, his base is his materials and dyes. In the former category, he has incorporated spandex into more of his fabrications, inspired by his ongoing collaboration with Lululemon. Geller’s comfortable, athletic garments have only become more agile. Even more invigorating is his new palette. Rather than labor over an exact shade of sandstone or clay, as he often does, Geller’s ditched his earth tones this season in favor of something more fabulous. The slime green stripes that cut through a nylon coat or the metallic azures that make up a shimmering suit are far more electric than what we’ve come to expect from the earthy designer. But if it’s not evident yet, Geller is ready for a change. Federico Curradi is finding his groove at Rochas. This annoyingly standing-format show (how to type?) was packed full of engaging all-organic garments, soft and flowing, and bohemian. Curradi said he’s trying to make an artist’s wardrobe and who doesn’t want to look like an “artist,” right? Since decamping to Paris from Florence, he’s tried to suffuse himself in Frenchness, and for this collection consulted Ed van der Elsken’s Love on the Left Bank and Helena Janeczek’s The Girl With the Leica what a story with which to conjure atmospheric touches to his garments. Inspired by Gerda Taro’s bravery and resolve (if you don’t know it, please Google her story; it’s amazing), he incorporated soft embroidery detailing on weathered military-uniform-inspired trenches and shirting in silk and cotton. Noticing my sisters panties and slips on the clothesline drying after washing and my mother neatly folding her panties and ironing her slips after the washing was brought in, kept building my interest and gave me persisting thoughts about panties and slips until it reached the stage where inexorably I felt compelled to explore trying on panties and a slip.
