Yeah it has only been vague rumors anyway, probably started the same way everything does on the internet.
Also, re. sizing, you should take a look at the runway pictures. A lot of the stuff is meant to be layered in different ways, so the sizing may not seem so wierd if you realize that that piece you thought was too big is meant to be worn over 4 other layers.
I'm 100% with you on this; see my love for the FW11 Richard jacket. All my stuff is worn true to size.
But everything I've picked up this season has been smaller in waists, ankles, chest, shoulders, everything
The (non mesh) tank now fits exactly as I want it to, whereas the couple I've tried before have been too big or low cut for my tastes
Tees went from the usual 18" chest to 16.5". I'll still wear em but I might have sized up if I knew what to expect
I can't help but assume it to be the result of people sizing down anyway, bringing the sizing closer to what people think "true to size" should be (tight, apparently)
