This morning, WWD reported that the Alexander McQueen studio in London was hit - the latest in a string of fashion burglaries happening in Britain's capital. But that's only part of the story - we rang the London police, and learned those bandits have struck yet again. On December 30th, two men riding mopeds smashed in the windows of the Marc Jacobs store on Mount Street in what was probably an attempt at stealing whatever luxe stuff was on display. The move was called a "smash and grab" by the Westminster Police, and we think that could be a fun slang word for an impulse purchase... Anyway... According to those same Westminster Police, whom we called about the story, the thieves were stopped by a security guard, and then they sped away empty-handed, only to succeed at another unnamed store on South Moulton Street, making off with just one (again, unnamed) item. The police couldn't release any more information about the crimes, as there are court proceedings in place (several suspects have been arrested, and one has even surrendered himself). Plus, most of those involved are just teenagers, meaning their names are confidential according to British law. But now we know the case is still open - and can anyone take an educated guess with that store on South Moulton?
