Otheyskens04b_2  We're still waiting for the official announcement, but it seems fairly certain that Olivier Theyskens is about to join Nina Ricci as creative director.

Previous director, Lars Nilssen, quit last month - good news for Theyskens, who had been left jobless when his previous employer, Rochas, closed unexpectedly at around about the same time. The 29-year-old is expected to announce the details of his new gig next week. As for Lars Nilssen, it's said that Oscar de la Renta may be the next fashion house to benefit from his creative touch.
