OLIVIER FUTURE: Olivier Theyskens, who will be at Barneys New York next Thursday for the launch of his “The Other Side of the Picture” book with Assouline, will not be teaming up with Christopher Burch to stage his return to fashion. There had been much speculation in recent weeks that the Belgian designer was in talks with Burch to launch a new retail concept, but any chance of a deal appear to have ended. According to sources, the talks ended late last month. “We are no longer in discussions with Olivier,” a spokeswoman for Burch’s J. Christopher Capital LLC confirmed. Not all is lost for Theyskens fans, though. He is said to be in talks with several different parties, so it could only be a matter of time before the designer returns to designing clothes.
