The Daily Mail Online reports that designer Marc Jacobs was forced to cancel his European press day after his entire spring-summer collection was stolen. According to the report, the 46-look collection was set to be unveiled in London on November 18. Jacobs’ camp sent out an email on November 17 announcing that the press day would have to be canceled because of the theft.
According to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report, whic quoted information from London’s Metropolitan police force, the incident was "reported to police, via telephone, after a quantity of clothing, bags, and shoes reported to be worth £40,000, ($63,000, 46,800 euros) went missing."
The AFP report revealed that the items were stolen from a delivery van outside Jacobs’s store in the exclusive London neighborhood of Mayfair. The pieces, which were transported by train from Paris to London, have little street value as they are only samples from next season. Thus, the police suspect that counterfeiters were behind the incident.
