Oliver Theyskens’s designs for Theory for the AW13 season are  based around a modernised shift shape – or rather trapeze design which stood away from the body and made the models appear to be floating among triangles as they walked the runway. The shift skirts came in all manner of materials, from heavy-looking fabrics, lightweight cotton and wools in a unified colour palette of icy greys and neutral tones.

The short length was repeated in, well, shorts designed in gorgeous calfskins and houndstooth prints. To stop the skirts and shorts looking too spring-like, they were teamed with multiple layers, knitwear unfussy sweaters and tailored blazers.

What Theysken has created with this collection is a modern treatment of closet staples – that are not too ‘out there’ but will be a huge commercial success and I’m sure, will feature heavily in contemporary customer’s wardrobes come autumn.
