Theyskens' Theory Spring 2013
The drama we've come to expect from Olivier Theyskens's Theory line was in full effect for Spring 2013. This time around, however, it was infused with something new: a slouchy, relaxed sort of mood. Pleat-front pants were cut roomy in the hip and thigh, while boxy jackets and tops had wide, heavily padded shoulders.
But it was a series of frosty-hued looks midway through that really showcased the designer's newfound sense of softness. With their gently cinched waists and rounded curves — and in delicate fabrics like honeycomb boucle, chiffon, and silk encrusted with pearls — they felt light as air and unexpectedly ethereal.
