The Theyskens Theory FW 2012 show at New York fashion week boasted new-age design and traditional structuring.
The pieces focused on sartorial quality and very subtle, modern detailing. The show started with more street-ready styles and there was a frequent use of leather and micro-mini hem lines. The combination was feminine, yet aggressive. The fierceness of these pieces was toned down by Kurt Cobain-esque knits. The oversize and cropped sweaters featured delightfully off-putting colors. The gray canary sweater was memorable and could easily become a staple piece.
The second half of the show featured more elegant styles. There was a grouping of wispy evening wear, with ghostly draping and dramatic silhouettes. Several sheer, floor-length pieces were incorporated into professional and casual outfits. The most memorable was a full-sized black ball gown with a white peter pan collar, reminiscent of Wednesday Addams.
The Theyskens Theory FW 2012 collection is perfect for any punk rocker gone professional.
