To say that Olivier Theyskens has been sorely missed since his departure from Nina Ricci last fall is a true understatement. After all, Anna Wintour famously declared, “How could you do this to me?” upon hearing of his break from the historic French house. Theyskens
has alluded to returning to design and his first foray back is in the form of a collaboration with Theory. Theory has been upping their game recently with stylist collaborations featuring industry heavyweights such as Jane How and Julia von Boehm, and Theyskens’s capsule collection is sure to be a sensational follow-up. Theyskens is designing for S/S 2011, so we have quite awhile to wait, but we’ll be highly anticipating how Theyskens interprets his ethereal, couture-like sensibilities for the “up and coming” sportswear label.


As of Oct ’10, Theysken’s role is now full time as the brand’s Artistic Director, overseeing the design of men’s, women’s and accessories collections. Now that the collection is on sale let’s see how his energy can revitalize that “bank teller chic”” look Theory was associated with.
