Peter Copping Rumored To Replace Olivier Theyskens As Creative Director Of Ninia Ricci

Fab Flash: Theyskens Out, Copping in at Nina Ricci

UPDATE: Nina Ricci has officially confirmed Peter Copping as its new artistic director. Copping's first order of business for the fashion house is to design a capsule resort collection for Ricci’s flagship boutique on the Avenue Montaigne and shops worldwide.

UPDATE: Olivier Theyskens and Nina Ricci have officially parted ways. In a joint statement from both parties, Theyskens left the French fashion house on March 10, earlier than his contract which expires in October. Louis Vuitton alum, Peter Copping, is expected to take over as the creative director for Nina Ricci. Theyskens is said to be considering a relaunch of his namesake label. Good luck Olivier, we look forward to seeing more beautiful designs from you!

Bummer. The rumors are confirmed — Olivier Theyskens is officially out at Nina Ricci. Why? Apparently, Theyskens and management clashed; management wanted to go commercial and Theyskens didn't. Adding salt to the wound, speculations for Olivier's replacement have already been announced. The fashion house is looking to steal Marc Jacobs's golden boy at Louis Vuitton: Peter Copping. The designer apparently turned in his resignation at Louis Vuitton after meeting with Ricci's parent company, Puig Fashion Group.

Olivier's contract with Nina Ricci officially terminates in late October, which means we'll potentially see two more collections from the boy wonder but rising tensions could lead to an earlier check-out date.
