Marc Jacobs S/S 2012 Collection Is Stolen!
It’s every designers nightmare to have their work go missing, but that, is unfortunately what has happened to prestigious designer Marc Jacobs, who’s Spring/Summer 2012 was mysteriously stolen recently.
After months and months of hard work and a great reception on the S/S 2012 catwalks, the entire collection went missing while in transit from Paris. The collection was due to be shown at an important press day at the Marc Jacobs store in London, but guests were informed that the event had had to be called off.
The email read: “Dear all,” The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow in the Marc Jacobs store is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris.”
The loss of the 46 strong collection is a great blow to the designer and it’s label, and it means there will be little Marc Jacobs press in the magazines this year as editors simply won’t be able to receive samples for review and photoshoot purposes.
This is not the first time a high fashion collection has disappeared though. Back in 2007, Christopher Kane’s S/S 2008 collection was taken from his studio just a few days before his London Fashion Week show and later in 2009, Â£350,000 worth of Victoria Beckham dresses were stolen from a lorry on it’s way to Neiman Marcus. It’s unlikely that the collection will reappear either as the consequences will be huge for whoever is in possession of it, so it’s most likely that it will end up disappearing from the face of the earth.
