Summary
"This is the first intensive monograph on one of the most intriging Belgian fashion designers, Olivier Theyskens. From the raw emotion and dark romanticism of his early collections, to the new version of French elegance that he delineated at Rochas and Nina Ricci, and the contemporary American fashion at Theory: the evolution of Theyskens' métier runs parallel to the significant changes in the fashion industry at the dawn of the 21st century. Again and again, Theyskens' silhouettes and drawings reveal the hand of a master. Poetic voices surround the timeless images of the Theyskens universe. The Theyskins muse walks in beauty wherever she goes."--Page 4 of cover.
