A Crime Of Fashion: Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012 Collection Stolen!

We’re all familiar with crimes of passion, but true crimes of fashion were unheard of until, well, now. It was intended for all of the (new, as-yet-unproduced) samples from Marc Jacobs’ spring 2012 collection to be presented to editors tomorrow, but an unknown thief had other plans. The Telegraph reports that the entire collection has been stolen from a train leaving Paris en route to the press day. How does that even happen? What will this mean for Marc’s line, and the distribution of the clothing? Here’s to the proper authorities catching whoever did it and recovering the clothes unharmed, because I don’t think I’ll be able to go on without owning this ensemble… or at least knowing where it is. I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of the incident.
