UK: Thieves Steal Oliver Sweeney’s Spring Shoe Samples
Designer Oliver Sweeney has had samples of every style in his spring 2004 collection stolen after leaving them in a van parked in west London.
Among the items taken were formal and casual footwear collections plus trainers, leather jackets, belts, gloves and accessories.
The van was designed as a mobile showroom and used to display the new collection of more than 50 styles to stockists in advance.
However, the theft is not expected to impact on sales as most customers have already placed their orders and production is already under way.
