My good friend Peter, a design assistant at Robert Geller, invited Bobby and me to the show. Despite my navy/black ensemble, I do believe I was wearing more color than 99% of the attendees. It isn’t my fault; I have furry little animals who shed like crazy. Black is a difficult color to wear because of this. My darker outfit suited the dreary New York weather and my elevated ModCloth heels kept my feet dry. Bobby and I sat in the car until show time, keeping our rain exposure to a minimum. I saved my puddle jumping for a less hectic day!
I’m always a fan of Robert Geller’s collections; it’s effortlessly cool and makes me think of sexy vampires (maybe it’s the models he uses). Like sexy vampires who were turned in the early 20th century and still mix in some of their old, classic garments with their modern wardrobe. Peter will probably throw up at that reference. This collection was different: he stayed true to his aesthetic but infused some gorgeous shocks of color, and everything was so lightweight and airy, less militaristic and more spring-time leisure. I wanted to touch everything…because I’m a creep. If you’d like to see full coverage of the show, click here.
