Who knew that creative wunderkind Olivier Theyskens, off an ill-fated stint at Nina Ricci, and business-casual staple brand Theory would be a match made in street-style heaven? It’s kismet. Especially after taking in Theyskens’ Theory Spring collection, aimed, as Olivier said himself, for all the cool downtown girls. He satisfies – and uptown girls will be happy, too! Theysken’s really comprehends how women want to dress these days.

Iridescent jewel tones brought life to periwinkle and indigo blues, standby neutrals, and go-to blacks. Breathable dresses suggest a life on the go. It felt like there was a an organic high-low mix going on, thanks to the smart tweed jackets with way off-kilter pockets, silky low-slung cargo pants, and a cunningly devised mix of structure and movement. Cropped leather highlighter-hued pants with metallic sheen and midriff-baring crocheted tops bring out the inner rock star and the consistent “jacket required” message will keep her in check. Maybe most impressively, Theyskens has managed to reinvent the high-waisted jean! By combining the lengthening silhouette with boyfriend slouch to spare, he’s given denim a new look – one for the heady set who is desperate for something new and different.
