Olivier Theyskens dipped back in to the 90’s when he designed this superb collection for Spring 2014. It was the soft proportions and layering that stole the show. - [StyleSight]
The tank tops he mentioned backstage got a lot of play. Layered over looser tees, they created soft, peplumlike shapes. Below the waist, pieces were doubled up, too. Biker shorts peeked out from beneath the hems of basketball shorts, or longer skirts extended several inches below shorter ones. The tiered effect made the models look extra-long, a visual that was accentuated by their platform sandals. Real girls might just consider going through all those steps if it means looking like these runway giants. But if not, a ribbed knit sweater over a long, narrow skirt with multiple split seams produced the same willowy results.
