At first it was just a weird coincidence that days before his Spring 2008 London Fashion Week show, Christopher Kane had 24 leather dresses stolen from his East London Studio. But then, after a little more thought, the attack on the Roger Vivier store on London's Sloane Street came to mind - hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of accessories were taken in a June smash-and-grab raid there.
The fashion burglaries continue: early yesterday morning, a gang on mopeds took sledgehammers to the windows of Luella Bartley's new London store and sped off with more than $20,000 worth of handbags. Then, minutes later, they targeted Brora, a luxury cashmere store, escaping with thousands worth of sweaters and rugs. The culprits are still on the loose...and who knows where they will strike next!
