Friday Fashion Fix

Marc Jacobs SS12 collection stolen. 

Earlier this week, Marc Jacobs' SS12 was cancelled as the entire collection was stolen in transit from Paris to London. Scotland Yard is investigating the situation. The Marc Jacobs Twitter account recently tweeted: "See any chic truck drivers cruising around Europe dressed in #SS12 collection? Get a pic and call 212-343-0222. Reward". Luckily, the collection was duplicate samples so the collection as it was shown in New York is safe and the red carpet won't be sans Jacobs. 

Haute couture Pudsey!

Children in Need's beloved Pudsey bear is an icon in his own right, but this year he's been given a makeover by the finest names in fashion. The likes of Mulberry, Erdem, Jonathan Saunders, PPQ, Henry Holland, Giles Deacon and Liberty have given Pudsey a little makeover. Giles has created a silver version while Erdem have created a pure cashmere bear with a 1 carat diamond. The bears are being showcased at
Liberty and will be auctioned off. Visit the Children in Need site for more information. 

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is expecting her first child. 

Exciting news, in six months there will be a beautiful new addition to fashion's royal family. Julia and her boyfriend of three years, Robert Konjic, will welcome their no doubt gorgeous bundle of joy in May.
