After four years of heading the brand, Olivier Theyskens is exiting Theory. The Belgian designer joined Theory in 2010, debuting with a splash when he presented the hit capsule collection Theyskens Theory.

"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," said Andrew Rosen, Theory CEO. "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."

"It has been an amazing opportunity to work with Andrew and to benefit from his knowledge in this dynamic segment of fashion," said Olivier. "I will always cherish our friendship."

Theory's pre-spring 2015 collection will be Olivier's last collection for the brand.
