Best known for his work at major French houses Rochas and Nina Ricci, the supremely talented Olivier Theyskens has now been named creative director at the decidedly all-American Theory. You may recall that the Belgian designer also has a capsule collection for the label, Olivier Theyskens for Theory. While he will continue that line, now Olivier will take the reigns at Theory overall as well. His first collection, according to WWD, is expected next season. We can’t wait to see how his darkly romantic signature translates into sleek, contemporary workwear.
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
