Marc Jacobs’ Entire Spring 2012 Collection Was Stolen?
Forget about wearing white after Labor Day, this is what we call a true crime of fashion.
How something like this is even possible, we can’t begin to fathom but according to The Telegraph, the entire Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 collection was stolen from a train traveling to London from Paris for the brand’s European press day.
British journalists and editors expecting to view samples of the collection for inclusion in their magazines, newspapers and online fashion blogs received this alarming email from Marc Jacobs’ PR team:
The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow [a refresher of the clothes that were first shown on the catwalk. What, the models' googly-eyed death stares were distracting, alright?] in the Marc Jacobs store is canceled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris.
Seriously? Seriously?? We are flabbergasted! How does anyone steal an entire 46-piece collection without anyone noticing? And furthermore, do the thieves actually think they can wear any of the gorgeous shimmery tinsel dresses, plastic skirts, green leather jackets or one-of-a-kind flapper-esque layered looks without being noticed? Probably not, but word on the street is that the stolen collection will be used to produce pretty accurate knock-offs.
No idea what this means for the future of Marc’s Spring 2012 collection or if it will ever be produced since the actual originals were taken but check out the Marc Jacobs collection and runway show below and reminisce on what may never be.
