"At half past midnight (Tuesday), our store was robbed and merchandise
stolen, although I can’t reveal the value of goods stolen as a police
inquiry has been made. We are pretty certain it was a gang who escaped
on scooters, " confirmed the store manager. This incident is the latest in a series of break-ins of
London’s luxury labels, which have included Marc Jacobs, Roger Vivier,
Luella, FrostFrench, Ralph Lauren, cashmere maker Brora, Christopher
Kane’s studio, and Anya Hindmarch‘s Ledbury Road store.
