Heritage clothing and footwear brand Nicholas Deakins has lost stock estimated at more than £2,000 following a break-in at its Leeds-based head office.
The break-in, which took place overnight on December 6 at the brand’s head office in Armley in Leeds, involved the theft of a limited edition T-shirt collection designed in collaboration with local artist Matt Trotter.
The brand, which described the theft as a “significant loss”, doesn’t usually hold stock at its head office site but the Matt Trotter collaboration T-shirts had just been delivered.
A statement from the brand, relating to the break-in, said: “Nicholas Deakins is sorry to have this happen both for the artist and the work he had put into the project and their loyal customers who had been looking forward to the collaboration for some time.”
No further details relating to the break-in have been released by the brand at this time.
