Olivier Theyskens To Design A Line For Theory

Olivier Theyskens, the long-haired fellow who used to be head designer at Nina Ricci, is designing a capsule collection for Theory. Theyskens has a habit of designing some rather gorgeous clothes, so we’re thrilled at the prospect of seeing some of his things at a more reasonable price point. That said, the Theyskens/Theory connection remains a bit confusing; why is a man best known for his elaborately ruffled and sculpted creations working with a brand generally associated with simple work wear? Here’s to hoping that Theory and Theyskens will rub off on each other and create clothes that are an epic combination of wearable and gorgeous. [Vogue UK]
