Forget about a Tower Heist, the real crime of the century occurred when Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2012 collection was stolen in its entirety from a train leaving Paris! How the thieves made off with the entire collection is still a mystery at the moment, but according to The Telegraph the train was en route to Paris for the Marc Jacobs press day where the collection was to be shown to editors when all of the samples vanished into thin air.
The bad news was delivered by email from members of 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 cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris.
Whoever these crooks are, they were definitely clever, it can’t be easy to make off with an entire collection without being seen, however trying to sell one of a kind, un-produced merchandise without drawing attention won’t be as easy. Hopefully the real fashion police are on the case.
