Haute heist: Merely two days after Louis Vuitton unveiled their Resort 2017 collection along the shores of Rio, the brand’s store in the same city was the target of a robbery. Nearly $140,000 of goods was taken from the shop at 2 a.m., in what looks to be a strategic job. via The New York Times.

Ad hoc: For their latest campaign, Burberry taps two rather different artistic talents: interior designer/artist Luke Edward Hall and photographer Mario Testino.
