Fashion Week: Theyskens' Theory
What: Romantic goth meets street-chic.
Take away: Belgium designer Olivier Theysken's second collection for Theory doesn't disappoint, with sharp, tailored jackets paired with wide-legged pants and romantic long skirts. Theyskens uses more colors and patterns this season - a street plaid in red still evokes a luxe touch with flowing silhouette in the bottom. This is a smart collection with a lot of cerebral aesthetics mix in with day to day contemporary wear.
What we love: What do we NOT love from this collection? Everything from the cape-like coat to the pants to the sheer black maxi dresses scream luxe without being too overt. Perfect for the new modern, contemporary woman. And with a contemporary price point, we predict this will be another sold-out collection similar to the one Theyskens did for Spring 2011.
