Whatever you were doing at 3am on New Year's Day, it was probably both less industrious and less illegal than this: Some burglar(s) climbed a heating duct outside the Cooper Design Space, broke a window, and burglarized Showroom Seven's office. The spoils included "bags by Orla Kiely and Jane August, Erickson Beamon jewelry and dresses by Akiko Ogawa," reports WWD. Curiously, the thieves left behind a bunch of expensive electronics, leading the company to suspect that they were "fashion-savvy insiders" specifically after the clothes. Which would, of course, be an amazing heist movie. "The Fashionista Capers"? "Orla's Eleven"? Screenwriters, are you listening?
