Andrew Rosen’s family has been in the garment business for more than 100 years. Today, besides running Theory and Helmut Lang, which generate more than $600 million in total revenues, Rosen has an ownership stake in several hot contemporary brands, namely Alice + Olivia, Rag & Bone, Proenza Schouler, Gryphon and Aiko. So it’s not a stretch to think of him, the president and chief executive officer of Link Theory Holdings, as the connector of fashion’s past and future.
Last year, Rosen tapped Olivier Theyskens as artistic director of Theory, which has ignited the contemporary sportswear brand in multiple ways.
