Back in December, 1,378 Giorgio Armani garments were stolen from a trading post in Verona, Italy. Yesterday, the Romanian police tracked down and arrested 10 Romanian citizens in Bucharest for stealing and smuggling 2 million Euros worth of clothing from the Italian designer's spring 2013 collection.
Chalk this one up to the ruthlessness of fashion, but it's not the first time burglars have targeted fashion collections while en route to showrooms, stockists, and runway shows. In 2011, the entire spring/summer Marc Jacobs went missing when it was traveling by train from Paris to London. In 2009, thieves nabbed 75 dresses from a van in NYC that was carrying Victoria Beckham's collection. And in 2007, Christopher Kane's London studio was broken into and 23 pieces went missing. With so many chic fashion insiders wearing all-black these days, it's tough to spot a thief in the stylish crowd.
