Nicole Farhi was mugged outside her home in London. The "French-born fashion designer...is "distressed and in shock" after being mugged at knifepoint by two men in front of her London home, says the detective on the case. London wire services are reporting that a $15,800 ring, a watch and foreign currency were taken from Farhi, 61." [NYP]
