Parisian Designer Olivier Theyskens moved to New York just over little over a year ago but he has already unlocked the secret to how cool American girls like to dress. For Olivier’s Theyskens Theory Spring 2012 collection it’s all about the perfect little jacket, a slouchy pant, a rock and roll heel and the look of nonchalance.

We went backstage to find out how to get the look.
