Olivier Theyskens at Halston: Not Happening

>> Despite the supposed lobbying of Anna Wintour herself, Olivier Theyskens won't be taking a post stateside — not at Halston, anyway.

Fashion Week Daily reports that the brand has no immediate plans to hire Theyskens, citing a "well-placed source" with knowledge of Halston's creative director search: "Olivier [as creative director at Halston] will never, ever happen.  It's no secret that [the brand] is struggling — they need a designer who can sell lots and lots of clothes, not just get great press."

Great press but not-so-great sales describes Theyskens in a nutshell with regards to his past two posts at Nina Ricci and Rochas, but maybe Schiaparelli or his own label will work out?  As for Halston, so far the label has allegedly approached several European designers — including Marios Schwab — as well as Narciso Rodriguez for the creative director role, but it sounds like none have panned out so far.
