Crimes of Fashion: Louis Vuitton Loss
Crimes of fashion abound this season and it seems Marc Jacobs is the prime target. On the heels of Jacobs Spring 2012 Collection being stolen from a Paris train (it’s nearly cinematic were it not so tragic) comes news that a gang of masked thieves stole $400K+ worth of Louis Vuitton goods from Roissy–Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris last week.
WWD reports that five robbers “neutralized” (what?!) a security guard and four airport employees to abscond with the Louis Vuitton loot from the airport’s freight terminal. Sheesh… burglers sure do like to dress it up.
