    I somewhere read about a men's collection. Where there any mens pieces in the showroom?

    cheers tric!
    thanks for the info...
    i had a feeling things might run small-ish...
    i wasn't particularly taken by his Ricci stuff either, but i always lusted after his collections for Rochas and everything i saw from those days was so painfully tiny and narrow...
    *i remember i kept ranting that he had to get the fit right or they were going to go out of business...:ninja:
    hopefully the partnership with theory will help sort that out, because they are pretty good with fit...
    in a different way, of course...but a very successful one...

    i am definitely going to check out this collection based on your feedback though...
    i trust your judgment and your eye...
    the tailored pieces are definitely the pieces that have my attention and i'm looking forward to trying them on...
    i get the same belgian meets parisian vibe from them that you describe...
    which only makes sense, no?

    thanks so much for your honest appraisal...
    i am a big fan of olivier's work and i hope this relationship works out well for all parties concerned...

    I'm a bit confused. Will this be Theory from now on, or is this under the Theory umbrella?

    Will it be sold where all of Theory is sold? Or only at Bergdorf and Barneys?

    ^I think this collection is separated from the normal Theory line, judging by this:

    Maybe it will be different for the upcoming collections, though.

    I can't wait to see this collection in stores (or online, at least) because I think I'll love every individual piece and will definitely have to get some shorts or tops.

    ^^i agree i think this is a different sort of thing for now...
    this is more of a guest collaboration and going forward they've offered him a role within the company from what i understand...

    maybe they'll continue to tack his name onto things though? for the extra pull it may have on some fashion lovers?

    i actually LOVE the low waist pants. then again, i'm generally on team Tom Ford and this collection is very much in tune with that kind of sexiness :lol:

    and i stand by my original comment that Olivier is best off right now working on basics, rather those huge as$ gowns.

    ^Thanks for the info. I've spent hours lusting over the collection today. I need the velvet wedge pumps in my life. They're fantastic. Anyone want to guess how high the heels are? I doubt anyone would be able to walk in them.

    I'm pleasantly surprised by the prices not being significantly higher than Theory in general. However I'm a bit disappointed by the fabric choices as there seems to be a lot that's made of cotton, polyester and viscose. I was hoping the shorts and tops would be silk.

    I never took much of Theysken's work seriously when he designed for Rochas, but holy **** this collection is all I would ever need in my wardrobe. Let's hope I bump into him at NYFW and maybe I can sweet talk him into giving me this entire line :wink:

    Tricotineacetat, can you recommend your or any other "brick-and-mortar" store in Europe that will stock the line? Would like to see it in person before buying...

    I just answered to your question in private and invite anyone to do so, in case of particular questions on styles etc.
