By now you’ve likely heard that Theory has named Olivier Theyskens as its new Artistic Director. Fans of Theory clothing’s accessible prices and Theyskens’ Paris-by-way-of-Brussels (bank-breaking) designs danced in the streets (okay, it may have only been me) at the news that Theyskens’ spring capsule collection was no mere dalliance: T and OT were ready for the commitment ceremony.
Smart move Theory, and not entirely surprising. This contemporary stalwart has been steadily upping its fashion game for the past year, while not straying too far from the tweaked classics they do so well. And what better ambassador for newly hip (but not embarrassingly so) Theory, than former model, Elle magazine alum, and stylist extraordinaire Isabel Dupré. She’s starring in our new Theory video, styling six exclusive Theory pant styles with her signature Parisian je ne sais quoi. In her words: “Mixing is what gives you style. When you shake things up a little you add personality to your clothes, to the whole look, and yourself.” So true. And yet so elusive. Let Dupré, with her lilting accent, walk you through the secrets of insouciant Parisian chic, Theory style.
