Anna Wintour Is Taking Care of Olivier Theyskens

>> Until now, we've only had an overheard reaction from Anna Wintour with regards to Olivier Theyskens's recent ousting at Nina Ricci, but suffice it to say she wasn't happy.  In her April 2009 Vogue editor's letter, however, she makes her discontent painfully clear

"Talent is a serious business.  At Vogue, we do not take for granted the miraculous emergence, development, and ascendance of great artists. We depend on them for our livelihood. Without . . . the smashing of the rules that their progress gloriously entails, there is no culture worth celebrating. Olivier Theyskens's recent departure from Nina Ricci suggests to me that the vital role of artistic talent has been obscured in the current economic climate. My staff and I were shocked to learn that Theyskens's contract would not be renewed; and I am very concerned that the business of fashion is undervaluing the most important asset our industry requires: creative visionaries. There's a reason we continue to see Theyskens's influence everywhere, from catwalks to the mall. He'll be back, but fashion must hold its nerve. This is the mission that we at Vogue happily shoulder."

And that's enough to make Nina Ricci executives squirm in their seats.  Not that anyone was doubting Anna would let Olivier slip through the cracks, but this is a pretty good affirmation that it won't happen.  Now, just to wait and see what job she gets him next . . . or maybe it will be backing for a line of his own?
