The Theft of Marc Jacobs

The Theft of Marc Jacobs

Hello world,

This one is a shocker. It seems that the entire Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2012 collection has been stolen in transit from Paris to London.

While it’s no doubt a blow to Marc Jacobs and his PR team, the biggest disappointment will be for all the fashion editors hoping to loan the clothes out for shoots.

Boy this is gonna get interesting!

Until then,

Franzi

Forget the high street – Paris is hosting the Haute Couture A/W 2010/11 collections

Hello world, For the next week, I’m gonna take a week off from covering fashion on the high street or vintage wear, and focus purely on my first love, designer and couture wear. It’s the most fabulous time of the year, when we get to oggle the beautifully crafted outfits and sigh with longing as …
