Louis Vuitton - Louis Vuitton Merchandise Stolen

More than $400,000 worth of Louis Vuitton merchandise was stolen from Paris' Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport on Friday (25.11.11).

While the investigation into the heist is ongoing, it is believed a gang of masked thieves held the store's five members of staff hostage while they filled two waiting lorries with luxury goods manufactured by the French fashion house.

No further details are yet known but Parisian police are looking into the theft.

Earlier this month, Marc Jacobs claimed its entire 2012 spring/summer collection 2012 - made up of 46 looks - was stolen from a train in Paris during a routine transfer.

An email to staff cancelling the fashion brand's press day in London read: "Dear all. The Marc Jacobs PR team is sorry to inform you that our press day tomorrow in the Marc Jacobs store is cancelled, due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris."

It is thought the collection was stolen in an attempt to counterfeit the samples rather than sell them on the black market.
