Well,I adore that he's at a house which allows more creative freedom and I love a couple collections(F/W 03 was his best,imo) but for me Theyskens was so much better when he was designing his own. The clothes were alot more immaculate and really,in true Belgian style,alot more thoughtful.

btw,what's he being cute have to do with anything at all? Just curious as that seems a superficial reason to love or hate him

i totally adore how Theyskens looks (he's the cutest) but when seen up close his work for Rochas is a complete dissapointment (to me that is)
aw, Lena i'm sos sorry you feel that way..

but, to me it seemed the white linen ensembles which i saw were immaculately made..except the edgestitiching on a long linen coat..was off in one place

...a bustier dress looked like it was a pain to make, and some faille skirts were lovely too.
maybe it's the wearabilty that's bugging you, but i think with his last collection he proved that he can dress a younger woman (albeit a rich one:p), the short combos are so cute.

I wouldn't agree you if I didn't go to Barneys and look at his clothes closely. I could see how beautiful they were supposed to look, but I was quite disappointed by the details...small things like stitches, how the material lined up with the linings, etc.(unless he tried to do that, which I doubt). I have to try them on to tell the "construction", but the details are the killer.
I love, love, love the dress on FW06 runway that looks like cloud around the lower legs...I can imagine how the material flows...

I still appreciate Theysken's work but I feel like he has pushed the label into a more stuffy direction. It's becoming more of a generic french luxury label (although still elegant and thoughtful) which is good for business I suppose but not nearly as interesting as the first few seasons when Thyskens was first brought on.



And apparently he was offered a job at Givenchy but it ended up not working out because theykens "asked for too much money". He also mentioned that he wanted to wait for the right oppurtunity. Rochas was good for him because he could build it up almost from scratch since the house didn't have much of a presence or history.

I pesonally like what he is doing at Rochas much better than his personal line...although...I did like a lot of SS 02...
These dresses from that line were very creative and kind of sexy, I thought:

Hmmmmm ... I wonder if he's having production problems, because as you say, no one's clothes move more beautifully on the runway.

Pastry, I agree that the clothes look more wearable now than those test-driven by Vogue. Maybe I will have a chance to form my own opinion when Barney's reopens here :p

I love love love everything Rochas, Lanvin and Balenciaga-the severe, black gothic-like clothes, the wonderfully inventive sihouettes-just perfect. Demi-couture Vogue US calls it-and it is just as wonderful as couture!
