Victoria Beckham's clothes stolen
09:30 01 July 2005
Victoria Beckham's first line of clothing has been stolen from a showroom.
It is feared the highly sought after designer denim range could even have been snatched for "fashion industry espionage".
The skinny-fit VB clothing line for designers Rock and Republic was meant to be viewed by potential buyers next week.
It was due to hit the shelves of pricey stores, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols, by January next year.
But, according to an insider, all the singer's trendy designs - a pair of jeans, two mini-skirts and a pair of cropped jeans - were stolen from the de Keyser Fashions showroom in London.
Robert de Keyser of de Keyser Fashions said the clothes are a prime target.
He revealed: "VB jeans are the hottest thing in denim, making them a target for fashion industry espionage.
"It is not clear if we are the victim of a casual theft or somebody with more sinister motives."
Police are investigating the theft.
