Only Olivier Theyskens could take a brand like Theory--a bit dusty, a bit conventional--and turn it into the most sought-after label for the downtown cool girl. And his Spring 2012 collection certainly served to reiterate that point--and win over any late-comers. Showcased at art gallery 548 Center, in a room lined with tin foil, the collection was the perfect mix of wearable, cool staples--like a perfectly-fit basic knit tank--and more fashion-forward, directional pieces like a pair of iridescent green-and-gold pants.
