It hasn't even been two weeks since the news about Peter Copping departure from the Parisian Nina Ricci, but it was enough to confirm that the rumours of his new venture at Oscar de la Renta were, in fact, true. For the first time in history of the iconic American house, de la Renta will be introducing a creative director to possibly replace him as the time goes by and it is Copping who is going to take the position.
"I'm very happy that Peter has agreed to join us. He is a great talen and along with our shared design sensibilities, we both have a deep curiously about the wider world, from music and art to architecture and gardens."de la Renta said to WWD. I think he definitely made the right choice.
Copping will be showing his first collection for Oscar de la Renta in February 2015 during New York fashion week.
