SS 09: Tim Hamilton + Robert Geller

Hamilton's shirts with tux bibs and twenties vintage find kinship with Geller's gypsy and prison pants and Eastern European references.

There is a certain coarseness to both collections that is made more raw by hair slicked back.

So far, these two collections from the New York Spring/Summer 2009 shows have made the deepest impressions. The images they have conjured linger longer because of mood and character.

There will always be trends, like stripes which have appeared in many forms on several collections, but mood and character are not as transferrable. Credit the stylist, but I still think the separate pieces (esp. jackets, shirts, blousons, blazers, vests, boots, shorts, and pants) will be able to stand on their own, distinct.
