For once, someone who takes "the future" as their inspiration actually created something wearable. Or as Olivier Theyskens told WWD, he looked to "notions of futurism" but "It was very important for me that it doesn't look utopian, but a more realistic version." That materialized into several quilted white, black, brown, and grey shifts rendered with volume, and slouchy knit sweaters paired with short shorts, skirts, and heeled riding boots. The collection and utterly useful to some wardrobes we know, so if not "utopian," Theyskens' future might be described as utilitarian. Have a gander after the jump.
