Olivier Theyskens Officially Leaves Nina Ricci

Fab Flash: Theyskens Officially Out at Nina Ricci

Rumours have been circulating for a while and in January it was confirmed that Olivier Theyskens would be leaving Nina Ricci when his contract terminated. However, the French fashion house has today announced that the creative director has already parted ways with them, about six months and a collection earlier than expected.

In an official joint statement Ricci said that Theyskens had exited on 10th March. Ricci “wishes to re-orientate its development strategy for the years to come,” and added, “Consequently, Nina Ricci and its artistic director Olivier Theyksens have decided by mutual agreement to cease their collaboration.” Peter Copping, who has been working at Louis Vuitton with Marc Jacobs, is set to take on the role although there are no updates in regards to his position.

Plenty of rumours were circulating throughout Paris Fashion Week as to the future of Theysken's career including working on the revival of Schiaparelli, and a relaunch of his signature label, but nothing is yet confirmed.
