Theyskens to Halston, Revisited

Suspense is building over our scoop last month that Olivier Theyskens, following his early departure from Nina Ricci, seems to be headed to Halston. Now, according to today's WWD, it appears that Anna Wintour has been playing matchmaker: "Halston is looking for a new creative director, and one name being bandied about for the gig is none other than Olivier Theyskens. According to sources, Vogue’s Anna Wintour is keen to find Theyskens, who recently exited Nina Ricci, a job in New York, and she is said to have been lobbying to get him installed at Halston. Over the past few months, the iconic brand has been putting its feelers out, and sources said it was at one point looking at Narciso Rodriguez and at London-based designer Marios Schwab to succeed Marco Zanini, who left the company last year after two seasons as creative director of the revived line. Halston executives said no decision has been made on a new creative director." Of course, nothing is written in stone yet, but just imagine Theyskens spinning his gold right here in New York. Heaven!

We love it, but can someone please make a ringtone of her sniveling assistant Brad? "The stress of putting stars in dresses is freaking me out!" ...
