Apparently, Marc Jacobs is even more in demand than we thought.

The über-hot designer’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection of samples has reportedly been stolen while in transit from Paris to London.

Consequently, a press day that was scheduled for U.K. fashion editors to see the clothes up close has been canceled.

“Dear all,” an email quoted by the Telegraph reads. “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 [sic] during its transfer from Paris.”

This 46-look collection, all made in model size 4-6, made its début on the catwalk during New York Fashion Week in September, and presumably has been loaned out to editors and retailers for appointments and photo shoots ever since.

This one-of-a-kind samples cost tens of thousands of dollars to produce.

A Marc Jacobs U.S. spokesperson did not return our calls for comment.
