Luella Deflected

Decidedly British designers this season are a prime target for organized flights. After the resounding burglary including Christopher Kane has suffered a few days before the presentation of his collection, it is now the turn of the spruce and talented Luella Bartley, who in addition to having seduced with its chic punk parade was at the same time opened its first store in London. The latter has been vandalized, and the bags contained therein are gone…

Organized, quick, effective, thieves know their business and know very well where to strike and how to act. If Kane was done discreetly, for Luella’s modus operandi is different but equally effective: young people in motorcycle crash to knockdown the window, grab bags for more than 10,000 books and swag fled seen or known.

The flight may well have occurred at 1 am, there still were witnesses that describe the burglars as menus, small and agile … This leads the police to believe that the thieves could be thieves … Therefore all rants are allowed, more whimsical to more realistic: a gang of girls addicted to Luella, a gang that hires the fairer sex, knowing she will better recognize the products of value, a group of small French who decided to test another version of the shopping…

Scotland Yard tends to favor luxury objects traffic, and parallels a flight that took place 10 minutes before that of Brook Street, in a cashmere shop, and thieves suspected of being the author of two evils. This leads them to think they favor the high-end merchandise, easy to sell on the black market. The investigation is ongoing…

In any case, it’s a bad surprise for Luella Bartley, who had just inaugurated its new shop and after many years in the US, had been keen to return to England. One would book him a better home…
