Founded in 2009, TheChicGeek.co.uk is one of the biggest and most respected men’s style sites in the UK. The man behind the blog, Marcus Jaye, joined us at last night’s Premium Lounge launch event. Find out what he thought of our revamped art deco space, the collections and the service on offer…
“Opened with much cocktail swilling and canapé quaffing last night, Superdry’s new Premium Lounge is one of London’s best-kept retail secrets. Descend the main staircase to the basement of Superdry’s huge Regent Street flagship store and sitting elegantly at the bottom is a perfectly preserved art deco barbers’ shop, hot towel warmer and all.
Now proudly the Superdry Premium Lounge, a world first, the original 1929 interior has been sympathetically dressed with Superdry’s premium offering of men’s and women’s tailoring, separates and accessories. This intimate space draws together Superdry’s collaborations with homegrown designers and limited-edition lines that celebrate heritage & design, including the hugely successful Superdry + Timothy Everest Sebiro tailoring range, the Northampton shoe-maker Cheaney and the very special Copper Label Selvedge Denim; many items you won’t find anywhere else.
TheChicGeek’s menswear highlights include the pinstripe double-breasted blazers in grey or black, the colourful cashmere-mix knitwear and the Timothy Everest Donegal tweed jackets with the signature Superdry pop of colour under the collar.
The new Premium Lounge is very much that, a place to relax and take your time. Behind sparkling chrome art deco doors there are private changing rooms big enough to hold you and your shopping entourage! A wall of mirrors and a raffia-carpeted floor is the perfect place to enjoy the whole shopping experience and atmosphere of the Premium Lounge. Here, items can be pinned for alteration and returned to you within no time.
There is also an exclusive monogramming service where you can place your initials on the bottom of the hem for a personalised finish.
The Superdry Premium Lounge offers personal shopping for the first time, which you can book easily online, and a gift-wrapping service, perfect for any last minute Valentine’s gifts. All of this comes with complimentary refreshments and knowledgeable and friendly staff to advise and offer assistance.
So, if you want something for a special occasion or simply an excuse to splurge, make a beeline for the new Premium Lounge at Superdry Regent Street.”
