Olivier Theyskens to Take Over Halston?

Here’s a puzzle: why would Halston, that newly-revived house of American sportswear, hire someone known for his over-the-top and costly gowns? There may not be a method to this madness, but it looks like newly-ousted Nina Ricci Creative Director Olivier Theyskens will be taking the reins at Halston in the near future. And when your fairy godmother is Anna Wintour, your dreams are pretty much sure to come true. “There's a reason we continue to see Theyskens's influence everywhere, from catwalks to the mall,” the Vogue editrix has said. “He'll be back, but fashion must hold its nerve.”
