Basics for Space Travel

The best and worst thing about the latest collection by fashion darling, Olivier Theyskens, is its wearability. The collection's inspiration was "comfy enough to wear overnight on a spaceship" with a heavy emphasis on comfort. The Theyskens' girl is looking to minimize for the future and it shows in effortlessly cool blazers in far-out materials and amped-up basics in the way of slouchy patent leather trousers (a popular silhouette on the fall/winter '13 runway) and chunky knit sweaters. There were lots of grumbles throughout the fashion community due to the lack of wow factor but I am impressed by Olivier's ability to put a collection sans fanfare on the runway. It is refreshingly crisp. Side note, it seems as though tall boots are making a serious come back in up-coming chilly months and if that is the case, the featured boot at Theyskens' Theory might have to become an integral player in my 2014 winter wardrobe.
