Olivier Theyskens to Design for Theory

It's only a matter of time before every label and every designer make a partnership with the other on a capsule collection: The latest players are Olivier Theyskens and Theory.

While the partnership startled more than a few fashion folk (Theyskens has been flying a bit under the radar in terms of design) WWD confirms that the former Nina Ricci designer -- a favorite of everyone from fashion insiders to Anna Wintour herself -- will collaborate on a line with upper-middle-class Theory for spring/summer 2011. 

We bet Reese Witherspoon, Theyskens' go-to girl during his stint at Nina Ricci, will be a huge fan of the less formal basics for her many tabloid-documented shopping excursions around LA. 

Sidebar: the Theory website has some fashion-y fun to be had a la J. Crew, with stylist pages and videos, and an inspiration collage-rich blog.
