“I am grateful for Olivier’s extraordinary contribution to Theory over the past three and a half years, and I am particularly excited to see what he does next. While he has already accomplished so much, I am confident in the power of his artistic skill and believe his future will be very bright,” Andrew Rosen, chief executive officer of Theory, told WWD.

This comment comes after Olivier Theyskens announced earlier this week that he is leaving Theory. Theyskens has been with the brand since 2010, when he designed his hit capsule collection, Theyskens’ Theory.

The designer who was artistic director at Nina Ricci (from 2007 to 2009) said, “It has been an amazing opportunity to work with Andrew and to benefit from his knowledge in this dynamic segment of fashion. I will always cherish our friendship.”
