Summer fun, Robert Geller style: wide, pleated shorts, hand-knit mesh tanks, a long trench. Who needs SPF? Especially when, in a regrettable touch, Geller zippered his pale wanderers into neoprene leg warmers and armbands. Without them, the collection he showed had the hallmarks of his long-honed aesthetic, something he said he'd been considering lately. Gypsyish layers. Loose tailoring that's at least half sport. Geller's boys have always been of the student-revolutionary stripe, and those aren't beach-blanket-bingo types (although, for the first time, they'll be able to wear RG sneakers, made in collaboration with Common Projects). But in moments where proportion and form worked together—Charlie France in a collarless baseball shirt and carrot trousers that hit at the ankle, say—they had a Gellerish charge of their own.
