Landsec has announced the launch of two independent brands at Trinity Leeds: local retail pop-up Curated Makers, and luxury sneaker and streetwear specialist Kick Game.
Curated Makers first launched in Leeds in 2017, and has since gone on to have pop-ups in John Lewis, M&S, and Paperchase, throughout the UK. The brand is returning to Leeds with this pop-up space, adjacent to the new Miniso store in a 1,600 sq ft unit.
Rare sneaker reseller Kick Game has opened its fourth UK location at Trinity, their first in the North of England. The retailer sells exclusive sneakers from the likes of Nike, Adidas, Yeezy, Air Jordan, and Off-White, as well as streetwear from brands such as Trapstar, Fear of God, and Supreme.
Russell Loveland, Landsec’s senior portfolio director, commented: “The pandemic has driven interest in independent producers, and sneaker resell is a big trend right now, so these two retailers are great additions to Trinity, giving our guests something new and exciting in the approach to the bumper festive period.”
Megan Jones, founder of Curated Makers, added: “We truly believe in thinking big and shopping small, and it’s amazing to have that support from Landsec, and be placed in a destination like Trinity with huge footfall and retailers like Next and Primark on our doorstep.”
Robert Franks, co-founder of Kick Game, said: “Leeds has an incredible sneaker-culture, so it made total sense to open at Trinity, in the heart of the city. We are thrilled to be open and to have been supported by local hero Kalvin Phillips.”
