Vogue Villains Strike Again

    The LVMH empire was struck once again this past Friday as 400K worth of Louis Vuitton merchandise was stolen from Paris' Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport. Allegedly, a band of masked marauders held 5 store associates hostage, and made off with their stylish spoils.
     A month has yet to expire since Marc Jacobs' entire Sp/Su 12 collection was stolen during a routine train transfer, and the fashion world has begun to wonder...

....Where is our Super Hero?

   What the innocent and helpless fashion community needs now is a vigilante...Gareth Pugh and his army of aphotic architectural warriors, Sarah Burton and her school of deceptively serene sea sirens, Alber Elbaz in a beautifully draped silk capelette...
   Until then, the design world is a sitting (albeit dashing) duck. Where will the masked villains strike next? For now we wait, weary and wanting of a hero to call our own.
