I'd also like to see him at the head of a couture house.
Can you imagine him at somewhere like . . . Dior?

Theyskens for Valentino?

but then again, i'm still bitter about Alessandra- Mr Garavani and his ratbags can go commercial-fy his couture with his "accessories designers"

so now i don't know where Olivier is going to go

I love Olivier Theyskens! He is one of the most talented young designers I think and I don't want him to leave!
I loved him at Rochas and I love him even more at Nina Ricci. Whatever he does, there always is the feeling of ease. His collections are intricate but not fragile.
If he is really leaving Nina Ricci, I hope I can see his own collection very soon.

I love him work at Nina Ricci. I can't understand why there are people who don't like so much what he creates.

I think he has said though that he has already started designing for next season so it's pretty ambiguous.

I whole heartedly agree with Josephjang though that he simply has to do his own collections

according to antoine asseraf,he overheard something quite the contrary at the show last night-

Last night, at the Nina Ricci show, upon being told this would be Olivier Theyskens' last show for the brand, Anna Wintour's reaction was

"How could you do this to me ??"

Heres a video from the Telegraph (via 'allooui' on youtube), he dosnt sound too convincing at the end does he?

There's all these mixed signals :S All over Style.com they're calling it practically his last season. But then there was that article in WWD with quotes from management saying how confident they were in him and how they were expanding in accessories

She really championed him at Rochas and when he was still fresh at Ricci, giving him editorial space and kind of mentoring him I imagine (taking him to de la Renta shows etc) maybe it was directed at him?

Maybe Alessandra and Olivier should team up and found their own label.
Just kidding.

He should def. resurrect his own label.

ah...dear. That's so funny, and so sad. I guess all we can do with the revolving door policy these days is to us it as black humor.

seriously though, i love them both, and it was sad to see the way their talents seem to be very much pushed aside for perhaps more commercialism, or designers who can turn over a buck.
