Olivier Theyskens Selects 4 Cool Girls to Model His Designs
Every girl wants to wear Theyskens’ Theory, but who does Olivier Theyskens really want to see wearing Theyskens’ Theory? To celebrate the in-store release of his line’s spring collection, Barneys New York asked the designer to select four girls from four different cities that best represent the effortlessly cool looks.
His ladies of choice—Caroline Issa of London’s Tank Magazine; Emily Weiss of NY’s Into the Gloss (pictured), Parisian artist Yi Zhou, and LA singer (who actually lives in NY now) Sky Ferreira—recently participated in a Theysken’s Theory-clad, Olivier Theyskens-styled shoot for the legendary department store’s blog.
If you’re curious to know what he’s specifically looking for in a muse, the designer breaks it down: "I want them to be beautiful, sharp, sophisticated, clever, free and relaxed. The Theyskens’ Theory girl is ubiquitously cool and modern and it transcends through her clothes." See all the snaps and some Q&A action here.
