A spate of overseas smash-and-grab thefts continues with the recent robbery of a Chanel boutique in London. Vogue UK reports that a trio of burglars lifted "a number of items" from the shop after reversing a stolen Audi into the store's window. Chanel has not commented on the value of the stolen merchandise; it's been reported that 26 purses were taken. The criminals are still at large. [Vogue UK]
