Did the Times just confirm Peter Copping's appointment to Nina Ricci? The speculation surrounding Olivier Theysken's departure from Nina Ricci has been accepted as fact, even though no official announcement from Puig Group, Nina Ricci's parent company, has been made. But what every front row gossip wasn't totally sure about was who exactly would take Olivier's place. Peter Copping seemed the most likely contender, especially after he supposedly put in his resignation at Louis Vuitton at the beginning of the year, after having met with Mario Grauso, Puig's president. But now, Eric Wilson's gone ahead and stated that Olivier will be "replaced by Peter Copping," which pretty much sets it in stone - obviously, Eric knows something nobody else does (at least not officially). So who's taking Peter's spot as women's studio director at Louis Vuitton? And how long before Olivier comes out with his own label?
