MARC JACOBS, fashion Victim.

SO there is a rumor that the entire Marc Jacobs Spring Collection was stolen. I found out last night BUT on the WSJ, they are claiming that is an elaborate publicity stunt and in fact the pieces are in NYC as we speak.
“Officials at Marc Jacobs declined comment but a person familiar with the situation told Heard on the Runway that it’s untrue that the entire collection was stolen. The runway looks are here in New York, this person said.
Regardless of whatever really happened, the team did send out this statement in a email, which I guess is why everyone started talking about this to begin with:
"Dear all," the email woefully began. "The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow in the Marc Jacobs store [in London] is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris."

Seriously, first of all... It someone fabulous because they were all sample sized.... Second it better not be on its way to a counterfeiter, which is the general consensus in the fashion world right now. WTF. Im legit angry that someone decided to steal the entire collection. Its taking someones work, money, BABIES.46 looks. GONE.


UPDATE: WWD is reporting that “it is understood that thieves made off with some ready-to-wear and accessories, but not the entire assortment from Jacobs’ various collections, which include his main line Marc by Marc Jacobs. Jacobs is said to have duplicates for many of the looks.”
