>> Next week, Olivier Theyskens will unveil his capsule collection for Theory — a pairing that was to many a surprise, given Theyskens's strength in designing red carpet gowns, but the designer told Vogue.com: “I love doing every type of clothes. I was thinking for a long time about starting a collection in another sector, something that corresponded in my mind to a Theory product. I don’t see it as such a transformation. It felt like a logical process, a result of a natural way of designing. Everything I start doing I feel personally, very me.”
Vogue.com previewed the collection — a few more images here — and from the descriptions, expect a lot of black: there's a black leather biker jacket, washed black denim trousers, black shiny flat booties, a black tailored wool jacket, and "a gray shawl-collared jacket of stretch linen and viscose cut so that it curves forward on the body."
