Menswear designer Robert Geller was drawn to the idea of tribes and cults for his SS19 collection. Specifically, the seasonal assortment pulls inspiration from the Tuareg in the North African deserts, as well as orange clad monks throughout Southeast Asia. Each group is particularly identifiable by their use of cloth and color, which Geller has applied to his SS19 delivery.
This season we find Geller playing with shades, textures, and pigment dyes, with dark indigo hues and ashy charcoals being a focal point, in addition to light orange and more earthy tones. Some of the featured garments, for example, have gone through multiple dying processes to obtain the final look that the designer desired. At the core, this modern interpretation of tribal-wear by Robert Gellar is noticeably casual, borrowing athletic-wear elements.
