He HAS a big house, or one with a lot of potential, and most of his collections there have been very hit/miss. Who knows if it would be any different elsewhere?

Its Grazia... and its only rumours at this stage anyway.

Im not sure if he had his own line it would be completely successful, although I would love to see what he could do. I think inbetween working for Rochas and Nina he was doing one-off commissions or a small pre-collection on his own?
If he did have his own label again, I imagine it being something similar to Alaia's business model.

His own line would be fantastic but it would be incredibly hard for him to find a financial backer; especially in the current economic climate.

I think those rumors are floating around in order to scare Theyskens into creating something more marketable. I wouldn't be surprised if the Nina Ricci people were behind all this!

I always think that Olivier has to design a real couture line. He is more talented than designing pret-a-porter...
I hope that he wants the same.

His last show for Nina Ricci was ugly, he's hard to work with and sales have been bad (and since before the economy fell apart). Normally when designers get the pink slip I wail and shed salt tears and roll in the dust, but it might not be a bad idea to fire him.

And then he could have his own line, blah blah blah, and as long as he never ever goes near a wide-shouldered wasp-waisted long-in-the-back short-in-the-front silhouette EVER again it'd be fine.

True, pretty much the reason why his RTW don't really sell much. Too couture-like.

Rumors like this were bound to happen... he's an artist. Wearability has become the driving force behind so many houses these days. I can't help but feel like he's a little behind of his time, if that makes any sense- he would have done very well in the time of the grand couturiers.

Peter Copping Looks to Be Theyskens's Nina Ricci Replacement
Wed, 01/28/09 — 12:24:25 PM
The Olivier Theyskens-Nina Ricci saga continues: Sources are saying that Peter Copping, who met with Ricci owners two weeks ago, is in place to succeed as designer at Nina Ricci. No details could be determined on when the switchover would occur — Olivier is contracted until October, which means he could show up to two more collections for the label, but rumors of clashes between the designer and management also imply that he might leave sooner.
The main point of disagreement is understand to be management's expected commerciality of Olivier's designs — apparently his Spring 2009 collection didn't sell well, but Olivier still seems blase about paying attention the bottom line. The designer has a history of designing expensive pieces that, while eliciting editorial acclaim, don't always sell well — this was the case at Rochas before Nina Ricci.
Copping, on the other hand, hails from Louis Vuitton, where if nothing else, he's guaranteed a pedigree in how to make money with fashion — Louis Vuitton is not exactly known for losing money as both Ricci and Rochas did with Olivier at the helm. Copping sounds exactly like what the brass at Nina Ricci would be looking for right about now — plus, he's Marc Jacobs's right-hand man, and has the Central Saint Martins degree.
In the midst of all this mess, Olivier still appears blase — he was spotted out partying Monday night, a big smile plastered across his face. Maybe he knows something we don't know?
