CAIRO – 5 January -2018: In celebration of acclaimed fashion designer Olivier Theyskens’ 41st birthday, we took a dive into his beautiful Instagram account, chose our top fashion moments from it and combined them with some quotes by him to brighten up your day.

“Our eyes reflect light. Better that the lips are more like a rose petal.” - Olivier Theyskens

“I like to be lazy. I do like to be busy and really active, but when that's done, you can be sure I will be a lazy boy. I like to take time and relax and enjoy life. ” - Olivier Theyskens

“We always see the tip of an iceberg. So, I've always accepted the idea that people - they don't necessarily know everything I am.” - Olivier Theyskens

“Art is the way people see things, and I think it's great when individuals can find in fashion something they truly believe is artistic.” - Olivier Theyskens

“A black dress is beautiful! It's a good choice. It could be the wrong choice at certain events or situations, but it's very rare that you see a girl who looks bad in a black dress.” - Olivier Theyskens

“Personally, I am not so affected by my environment. What I build in the creative process is not necessarily connected to what I am physically in contact with. I am always observing everything, but it will not necessarily have a direct impact on what I do.” - Olivier Theyskens

“Today, there are more things you can wear for the same occasions. I still like this idea of the perfect suit, and I always love tailoring, but today you can have more things for this type of situation, clothes that have class and that are mixable, and that are super well-cut.” - Olivier Theyskens

“Personally, I have had sometimes moments where I thought my idea behind the idea of a collection - the concept maybe - something that we don't see at the end on the catwalk, I think the way it was, the genesis in my mind, was probably artistic, an artistic approach.” - Olivier Theyskens

“With couture, you feel obligated to design something modern each season, but with Theyskens Theory, I don't question anything. I'm thinking of what I'd like to wear.” - Olivier Theyskens

“I think the relationship is very tenuous between fashion and art. Many designers have built relationships with artists, which is not something I personally did. But it's true, sometimes you see artists working for a designer or a brand on some specific project or taking care of their environment and making an amazing store.” - Olivier Theyskens

“My sense of designing is a mix of intuition and intellectual control.” - Olivier Theyskens

“My first collection was made from sheets that my grandmother, who lived in Normandy, had been collecting for a long time. There are a lot of flea markets in that part of France, and she knew what I liked.” - Olivier Theyskens
