Police are investigating after two masked men stole £150,000 worth of handbags from a designer handbag shop in Knightsbridge.
Officers were called to Egerton Terrace at 4.30pm on Saturday 24 May 2014 to reports of two men committing robbery in the store.
Scotland Yard said no arrests had been made and no one was injured.
It is believed that two unarmed masked men entered the store and seized a number of high value handbags before making off in a dark coloured vehicle.
The store is the Designer Exchange, who say on their website: "We love designer handbags. We aim to revolutionise this second hand industry and want to give our customers a better way to buy, sell and exchange.
"We guarantee all our handbags and accessories are authentic as it is vital to give our customers peace of mind when paying for such high value items."
The store's Instagram account describes it as a "Knightsbridge-based prestigious boutique with rare, vintage, new & pre-loved designer handbags. Luxury handbags sold, brought & exchanged".
Photographs shared by the store feature bags by designers including Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen - and cost hundreds of pounds.
Anyone with information is urged to call Notting Hill CID on 0208 246 0173 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
