Marc Jacobs’ Entire Spring / Summer 2012 Collection Stolen In Paris

Mysteriously, all 42 ‘looks’ (i.e, outfits, because some of us are wearing sweatpants and don’t follow up on fashion lingo) have vanished in Paris. 

One wonders how someone could pull off such a stunt without some kind of Oceans 11-esque tomfoolery, yet apparently, it’s been done without a trace. In an email sent out to fashion editors earlier today the Marc Jacobs spokesperson declared that their November 17th ‘press day’ (i.e, re-showing of the line) would no longer be taking place due to the theft. 

Theft is not entirely unusual in the fashion world; in 2007 designer Christopher Kane was the victim of theft when his entire 2008 spring/summer collection was stolen from his studio just days before it premiered at London’s fashion week. At least Marc’s collection got to be premiered – it’s going to be incredibly hard for whoever stole the items to try and sell them on anything other than the black market. 

More on this as it develops.
