stolen??? or not?

well, lil birdy said today that apaprently the 2012 MARC JACOBs mainline runway looks were stolen. several reputable sights have written about it...
from the telegraph:
' "Dear all," the email woefully began. "The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow [a refresher of the clothes that were first shown on the catwalk. What, the models' googly-eyed death stares were distracting, alright?] in the Marc Jacobs store is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris." Impressive, considering the collection consisted of 46 looks - hardly an under-the-T-shirt job is it? '


and now it seems Fashionista.com is reporting from HEARD ON THE RUNWAY blog that it wasn't the whole she-bang...

"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"

so whatever was stolen....and by whoever....i think this is a case for the mystery machine...
anyone care to comment why MJ isn't in talks for DIOR anymore?
maybe it's sabotage!

the elusive frankie bag

yes...some of you may know im a frequent poster over on ThePurseForum.com. I also authenticate MJ bags over there when im not gushing about them....I started this thread a long long time ago>>>http://forum.purseblog.com/marc-jacobs/ze-elusive-frankie-bag-who-haz-seen-dis-396655.html....in regards to the FRANKIE bag, shown in the advertisements that our dear ole lil FREE WINONA ryder modeled in.


I think the other bags in the ads were a bit more popular...but the frankies are TDF. they can still be found on ebay.

there was a small pouchette version:




the medium (which i owned in balck a long long time ago )




and this new one I discovered, the LARGE size....which is also a messenger.




they came in black, khaki, a minty green tone, yellow, and coral from what I can track down..


I think the newer Kate bags from the paradise line are similar in their simplistic chic to this bag....I love how MJ reinvents his older designs season after season. Sometime in the future I plan on doing a very long drawn out post on that....in the mean time, I'm collecting data....as that will most definitely be a designer thesis!

enjoy this lil part of MJ history....
I have a lil green surprise to share in a lil bit...and so sorry mr. jacobs, but chloe bit me and I've been a bit of a cheater as of late too....you need to do more GREEN BAGS!!!!!!!!!!!!! just sayin' ....
i still love you
