Olivier departs Theory


Olivier Theyskens has parted ways with

Theory after nearly four years at the

creative helm of the label.





“I am grateful for Olivier’s extraordinary contribution to Theory over the past

three-and-a-half years, and I am particularly excited to see what he does next,”

Andrew Rosen, chief executive officer of Theory, said. “Everything has a

life cycle. Olivier has done great work at Theory, and I believe his appointment

at the company and his creativity within the studio enhanced the brand and

added a new dimension and new possibilities to the market segment.”“It has

been an amazing opportunity to work with Andrew and to benefit from his

knowledge in this dynamic segment of fashion,” Theyskens told WWD. I will

always cherish our friendship.” Theyskens’s last collection for Theory will be

pre spring/summer 2015, after which the in-house design team will take over.

He, meanwhile, is said to be pursuing other design projects.
