Pushing Product: Theyskens’ Theory

It started with a capsule collection for Spring 11, and now Olivier Theyskens’ Theory has developed into an extensive runway collection for Fall 11. And what a marriage between the two it is. Theory, of commercial contemporary collections (and those ubiquitous black pants we all had just over 10 years ago), and Theyskens with his signature Edwardian/Goth references – who would have thought the combination of the two would yield such impressive results? Here’s a cheat sheet of items and looks which have brought the collection to new heights.

GRUNGE. Plaid, broom skirts, oversized. We’ve seen some grunge this season, but here the long silhouettes push the point further.

LONG MILITARY COATS. A welcome alternative to all those parkas.

LOW-SLUNG PLEATED PANTS. A nice follow-up to the slouchy peg pants from last season.

FLARE PANTS. Like I said, these are major. Here in corduroy and denim.

HOT PANTS. In leather or denim.

INKY PRINTS. Prime application on an ankle-grazing dress or billowy tunic.
