As the high-end Balmain brand prepared to launch its new collection at Paris Fashion Week later this month, a delivery driver was attacked and merchandise from the brand was stolen.

A driver was hijacked while transporting items between the airport and Balmain’s headquarters in central Paris, leading to the theft of more than 50 items, designer Olivier Rousteing wrote on his official Instagram page, adding that the driver was safe.

A company spokesman did not immediately respond when asked for comment outside regular business hours Sunday. It was unclear which airport Rustin was referring to.

The creative director said he discovered the theft while trying on items ahead of the brand’s Paris Fashion Week show on Saturday morning. Scheduled September 27th.

Balmain is part of the Qatar Investment Fund May hula which also has Valentino.

Balmain is known for its elegant, modern tailoring and red carpet gowns. Recently, actress Emily Blunt wore a mint green Balmain dress to attend the Paris premiere of Chris Nolan’s film “Oppenheimer”. Beyonce wore a variety of custom Balmain creations during her Renaissance Tour.
