NINA SAILS ON: The Chambre Syndicale has released a temporary version of the schedule for Paris Fashion Week, with few surprises. However, it does underscore that the show will go on for Nina Ricci and its designer, Olivier Theyskens, who are on the calendar for a 7 p.m. show on March 5 at Halles Freyssinet, a warehouse in the 13th arrondissement. Theyskens’ contract at the Paris-based house is in effect until the end of October. However, as reported, Peter Copping, a seasoned designer at Louis Vuitton under Marc Jacobs, is in line to succeed Theyskens as the next designer at Nina Ricci, according to sources. Meanwhile, one striking change not yet detailing on the temporary calendar is a change in venue for Nicolas Ghesquière, who has shown his collections for Balenciaga at the firm’s Rue Cassette showrooms for the past seven years. This season, he’s moving his show to the Crillon hotel — or make that shows. There’s one at 10 a.m. for press, and another at noon for buyers.
