This is what the Designer, Teo Dekan had to say about his new collection: In my work, I’m in constant search of a “perfect female wardrobe”, research the nature of HER, THEO Woman. HER personality, HER feelings and emotions, HER character become clearer and more nuanced with each collection. The new THEO collection Fall-Winter 2018/19 is the result of my immersion into the style of THEO Woman.   The main idea is “One collection to suit all, and unique for each and every one.”   THEO Woman is absolutely natural, SHE doesn’t strike a pose or crave attention.

HER choice doesn’t take much time, as SHE dresses for HERSELF. The magic of HER originality is in elimination of standards. SHE never dresses for an occasion, at the same time SHE is always appropriately dressed. SHE doesn’t showcase. SHE observes. Observes HER feelings, HER experience and HERSELF. SHE is honest […]
