An Italian designer preparing to show his collection at Milan Fashion Week has had every piece of clothing stolen less than two weeks before his scheduled show.

Roccobarocco described the theft as well planned and thoroughly executed.

Thieves struck the design house last night, lifting outfits, shoes, bags and accessories from the Viale Bianca Maria location. A security guard alerted police of the break in but the robbers made off with the entire collection before backup arrived.

There was no word on Roccobarocco’s plans to reschedule if the items are not recovered in time for Milan Fashion Week, which will run 21 to 28 September 2011.
