It was about the future at Theyskens' Theory's Fall 2013 show, from the minimalist clothing to the clean, fresh skin. Designer Olivier Theyskens worked with James Kaliardos for MAC to execute the woman of the future, putting the focus on a diffused, lit-from-within complexion. The hair, by Kérastase's Odile Gilbert, felt equally polished and yet untouched, with strands slicked back into a headband for a cool waterfall effect.

Olivier Theyskens's Fall 2013 collection for Theyskens' Theory was all about volume. The designer worked a lot of space into a series of short trapeze and cocoon dresses rendered in a mostly black, gray, and cream palette. Nearly every other piece in the offering tended to float away from the body, including a black blazer that was paired with a leather A-line skirt, and several generous shirts and pieces of outerwear. Our full review will be posted shortly. In the meantime, a first look at the collection here in the gallery.
Most designers don't try to reinvent the wheel with their Pre-Fall collections, but Olivier Theyskens isn't most designers. So even though he said he "wanted everything to feel really essential" in his most recent Theyskens' Theory collection, that sentiment didn't stop him from being a little forward thinking.
Take for example, the multifunctional pieces here, like a jacket and miniskirt that combine to look like a belted coat, or a white poplin shirt long enough to be worn as a dress. (Theyskens instead showed the shirt tucked into a white A-line skirt.)
Elsewhere, fine-tuned basics dominated, like a slim-sleeve raglan sweatshirt, a dress made of denim, and several pairs of trousers cropped at the ankle. A subtle tartan added a flair to a trench coat and some shirts. Otherwise, the only print was one inspired by one of the essential things that holds New York City together: scaffolding.

Kate Bosworth attended the Theyskens' Theory Spring 2013 collection at New York Fashion Week wearing a denim biker jacket with an abstract-printed blouse, which she tucked into a pair of sporty off-white shorts. She kept her accessories to a minimum: a gray satchel, which she wore on her shoulder, and black pointy pumps. Whether or not you're attending Fashion Week, mimic Kate's front-row ensemble by investing in this similar Silence & Noise denim biker jacket ($79) and sporting it with your printed blouses and short shorts.
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.
Olivier Theyskens showed two kinds of women today at Theyskens' Theory's Spring show: the subversive working woman and girlie girl. Somehow, he made it work in his own genius way. Check out the collection in the slideshow and come back soon for our full review.
