The "temple of streetwear" was attacked. This Sunday morning, two men burst into the store of the New York brand Kith, which opened its doors in 2021 on rue Pierre-Charron in Paris (<>th), a stone's throw from the famous Champs-Élysées avenue.
According to a police source, the robbers stole a dozen luxury watches and jewellery. According to initial estimates, the damage would amount to more than EUR 600 000. At this stage, no one has been arrested.
In the middle of the morning, at around 10:45 a.m., the thieves, whose faces were hidden, allegedly entered the business by spraying the security guard with tear gas. They then allegedly smashed a window with a hammer to better snatch up the luxury goods. They finally fled, apparently on a motorized two-wheeler.
