Stylish Heist! Thief Gets Away With 500 Hermès Bags
Every since Grace Kelly, then Princess of Monaco stepped out carrying a bag by Hermès before a paparazzi-ridden scene—resulting in the now named ‘Kelly bag’— the French luxury goods brand has been desired by women everywhere. Our favorite starlets like Beyonce and Victoria Beckham strut the world’s street carrying the Birkin and other desired Hermès goodies. Remember the scene in ‘Sex and the City’ when Samantha (Kim Cattrall) becomes so desperate for a Birkin, she uses her client’s name (Lucy Liu) to move up an elongated list to snag one at New York’s Madison Avenue store? Well now, some expert thieves in France make Samantha look like a Mother Theresa reincarnate.
Get into likely the worse heist since the legendary getaway in ‘How to Steal a Million’! Last Thursday, thieves thirsty for luxury stoled a whopping 500 Hermès bags valued at…get ready…$1.07 million! The heist went down in a packaging facility in Le Plessis-Bouchard, a town 15 miles outside of Paris.
No word on if the thieves were caught by authorities. But you can bet your ass those bags are currently selling for premium at a Parisian swap meet!
