It looks like after a couple months of hiding, London's fashion looters are back in action. According to Vogue UK, up-and-coming designer James Long showed a well-received line for Topman's MAN runway, only to have the entire collection stolen from his East End studio hours later. The strangest part? Everything else in the studio, including the designer's laptops, were in their normal place. Only the clothes - all but a few accessories - were taken. No word yet on how the burglars entered the space - but we're curious if it's the same group that raided Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs back in December. We doubt it, since that group's signature move was to "smash and grab" - ride by on mopeds and smash the windows of store-front displays to grab whatever they can. We're not sure how to calculate the street value of obviously stolen clothes. But since only the clothes were stolen, maybe they really are just a group of fashion fanatics? In any case, we suggest questioning all the well-dressed men hanging out in Hackney. Or, rounding up all the victimized designers and finding out if this is some ploy to gain publicity...
