Last week, samples from Marc Jacobs' upcoming spring collection were stolen while en route from Paris to London, sending the company into a tailspin as they cancelled editor previews and offered a reward for the return of the garments. Now, over $400,000 worth of Jacobs-designed Louis Vuitton products have been stolen from Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport.
Oh, and did we mention that Jacobs has officially turned down the offer of head designer at Dior? Somebody cut this guy a break already! Also, it sounds like France is on the verge of a couture-stealing epidemic, so let's beef up the security, n'est-ce pas?
