It's Official: Theyskens Out at Ricci
(NEW YORK) After months of swirling rumors starting with The Daily’s December 18 report, Olivier Theyskens and Nina Ricci have finally made their parting official. Though it was generally accepted that his March 5 show was to be his last, Theyskens’ contract was not due to expire until October and Nina Ricci parent company Puig repeatedly denied an earlier departure.
A joint statement from Theyskens and the brand, reported by WWD, said that Ricci “wishes to re-orientate its development strategy for the years to come. Consequently, Nina Ricci and its artistic director Olivier Theyksens have decided by mutual agreement to cease their collaboration.” Louis Vuitton designer Peter Copping is slated to replace Theyskens.
There’s been no official word as to what Theyskens will do post-Ricci, though insiders are speculating that he may relaunch his namesake line.
