According the New York Times, the robbery took place at the Ipanema shop at about 2am local time on Tuesday, just two days after Louis Vuitton's Cruise collection show at the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum in Rio.

A Brazilian spokesman for Louis Vuitton told the Times that the military police later secured the store, as many local customers and tourists were lining up to buy items as a result of the show.

“They came after the robbers,” the spokesman said.

Louis Vuitton has not commented.
