The New Man At Nina Ricci

April 22, 2009  12:44 pm

It’s official. Peter Copping, formerly of Louis Vuitton, started at
Nina Ricci on Monday, replacing Olivier Theyskens, who was let go after
a remarkable Fall show in Paris last month. Copping is working on a
resort collection that will be presented in late June, but it’s said
that he won’t make his runway debut until next March. He told WWD
he’d like to make Nina Ricci “contemporary again.” No word on whether
that means contemporary price points (we sort of doubt it, but a girl
can dream, can’t she?). If it in fact does, it wouldn’t be the first
storied French brand to move in that direction. Rochas, which
relaunched for Fall when Marco Zanini stepped into a position
previously occupied by Theyskens, intends to keep its prices below
designer levels. Theyskens, meanwhile, continues to be the subject of
rumors about reviving the house of Elsa Schiaparelli. There’s also talk
that he may relaunch his signature label.
