Thieves, it seems, are acquiring a taste for high fashion, or at least for Marc Jacobs. First , the diligent designer’s spring 2012 collection was stolen from a London-bound train two weeks ago and now over $400,000 in Louis Vuitton has been lifted from an airport outside of Paris.

In a plot that sounds like the long-discarded gay Ocean’s 11 sequel, Ocean’s 69, a gang of five masked robbers “neutralized” a security guard and four employees at the Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport terminal on Friday, before making out with 10 pallets of Louis Vuitton goods.

Authorities are currently looking into the matter, but they had better look quick. The rule of 3s dictates that another crime will take place and the smart money is on Dior, as everything Marc Jacobs seems to touch — whether he wants to or not — goes missing. Meanwhile, this sounds like the long-discarded Woody Allen gay dramedy, High Fashion Crimes and Miss-Dior-meanors. [WWD]
