The metallic pants, the jackets, the blouses, the gowns, the short dresses (particularly Anabela's).....it's all divine.
Everything is so effortless and youthful. I seriously just wanna put one of these looks on and hit the streets.

high waist low belt, I kind dig it on some of the looks, and on some others, it's just too far out there.

I love WWD's description of Olivier's aesthetic as "Gothic whimsy"

I really like this. Olivier has done such a good job of treading the line between Theory's commerciality and his own creativity. It's not perfect, there are a couple of looks that I think could have been nixed, but overall it's a good collection. The iridescent pants I love, as well as the knits and the second and third to last dresses in particular.

It's so....cool. If I saw a girl wearing these clothes in public I'd instantly want to know who she is. The collection is casual but still really carefully put together.

I guess I'll be the first, but I'm not feeling this - like really not feeling it. I've really liked what Theyskens has been doing for Theory so far, but this is lacking something. Maybe it's cohesion, like there isn't a look that's as defined as the first two collections. Maybe it's that there really isn't one standout piece. Maybe it's that there isn't something that elevates this from being more than just basic clothes that girls everywhere already have and throw together in much the same way. I get why that might have appeal but I feel like a fashion presentation should be more than a mirror of how people already dress.

And I have to say that the trompe l'oeil sagging waist is odd looking even on 6 foot tall beanpoles. I pray they don't catch on with the masses.

The photos do not do the collection justice. It's brilliant in motion. You get the full experience of the flow of each piece along with the texture of the fabrics. Olivier achieved what he had set out to accomplish, not designing total looks, but focus on each individual garment and put them together like the modern woman of today. The finale is spectacular. Understated and restraint, with Classic Olivier silhouette and drama, but refined for Theory.
