Working his vain-covered catsuits and sinister Alice in Wonderland dresses to become head-designer for Rochas and Nina Ricci, Olivier Theyskens, l'enfant terrible-ment dream-noir-chique has now returned to the design table...as head-designer at THEORY, the American brand founded by Andrew Rosen.
We see in his first spring/summer collection the sharp lines, the nonchalant but comfortable fitted jackets and trousers in a simple but ever working color-palet going from grey, black, white to some accents of dusty red and some shiny midnite blue...stylish with a gentle rock-n-roll attitude. All made out of Italian and Japanese fabrics but with a Belgian and definitely Theyskens touch...see the triangular cut in the jackets and elongated silhouettes...and the inspiration he took from his own paintings and drawings!
It's great to have Mr. Theyskens back!
The collection has also some great accessories and even a limited edition T-shirt, available exclusively at
See a little selection I made out of the 35 silhouettes...with my own preference to the dark/grey ones!
