The famed designer’s entire Spring 2012 collection of sample sizes vanished on a train from Paris. Who would steal samples? The collection consisted of 46 looks and all have reportedly been stolen. The collection was on its way from Paris to London for a European press day. Marc’s PR team released this statement via e-mail: “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”.
Reports are saying the collection is being sent to a factory for mass production & distribution at knock-off prices. Hopefully Marc has a ton of patterns & sketches, in case the collection gets released or this “knock-off” scheme holds true.
