>> Olivier Theyskens and his gowns make me swoon. Always. Whether Mr. Theyskens is designing under the House of Rochas or the House of Nina Ricci, his trademark romantic style always translates best into floor-length gowns. The diagonal hemming and seaming inspired by the Nina Ricci L'air Du Temps perfume bottle that was so beautiful in the his pre-Fall collection carried over into the Fall/Winter 2007 collection in sigh-inducing stiff chiffons and taffetas. Topping off the looks were single ostrich strand hair extensions, a genius idea that added a wood nymph quality to the already ethereal collection. I think it's safe to say that while Mr. Theyskens could work on honing his casualwear to match his gown expertise, he seems to be right at home in his new fashion house.
