Robert Geller - Tuxedo Vest
DETAILS: 100% linen body, 65% cotton, 32% cupro, 3% polyethylene front, 100% polyester lined vest with tuxedo shirt front and adjustable side straps. One of Robert Geller's idiosyncratic accent pieces for Fall/Winter '09, this accessory was shown on the runway layered underneath a heavy wool vest and on top of a dark dress shirt (see top two photos). Its lightweight construction and open sides make it easy to mix in between layers without getting hot, and it's adjustability makes sizing totally relative (i.e. don't worry if you're not a 44 or a 48 - if you're close it will fit you). We love it because it has the ability to inject so much personality into a look even if it's barely peeking out from underneath a jacket.
