Superdry. Trinity Leeds. The Live Series.
On Saturday 27th April we well and truly brought the noise to Trinity Leeds Shopping centre as Jacob Banks, Bashy, Amplify Dot, Kay-C and the Dilation DJ’s, took to the stage in our first ever #LiveSeries event.
Getting the crowd hyped pre-event was resident beatboxer, Contrix; and our breakdancer/bodypopper combo of Kieran Lai (of All Stars movie fame) and Issie, who were off the chain!
First to take the mic was Kay-C and what a way to kick things off!
Next up was South London’s finest, Amplify Dot, who dropped her trademark flow and witty lyrics. When she dropped her brand new track, Kurt Cobain, the crowd went wild.
Just as well really as the next act well and truly blew the roof off! His friends know him as ashley thomas, you may know him as the Mixtape Legend, but we know him as the award-winning BASHY!
Spittin’ bars left right and centre, the crowd were up on their feet, in your face, and getting down.
Taking things down a level (which was much needed after Bashy’s high-octane set) was an intimate performance from midlands-born Jacob Banks, who was the headline act of the first ever #LiveSeries
Here’s to #TheLiveSeries part 2!

Aw13 & Timothy Everest Women’s Launch.
Thursday 11th April 2013 was a big day in the Superdry calendar. not only were we previewing our AW13 collection to the most established Fashion writers, journalists and bloggers in the uk, but we were also getting to launch something big…
And by big we mean The Superdry + Timothy Everest womens sebiro collection!
The biggest names in fashion spent the day in the showroom of our flagship store on London’s famous Regent Street, checking out the collection that will be released later in the year.
Our AW13 collection features well-loved and classic Superdry pieces as well as a new grown-up collection of female tailoring that oozes modern, feminine glamour.
Womens denim has had a major overhaul with new wash techniques for jeans, complete with a vibrant palette of animal prints, dip dyes and unique shades of raspberry and winter green, whilst our menswear takes inspiration from the past with a heavy dose of the new. Think retro fairisle knits in crew and roll neck styles, updated with pops of neon yarn and navajo details.
Our standout attraction, and something that put a smile on the faces of the writers from of Vogue, Grazia, Company Magazine, Elle & GQ to name a few, was our Exclusive Social Media Mirror!
Our guests were given the chance to take their photo on the huge interactive, touch screen mirror and share in real time to their social media pages!
Following the successful launch of the tailored collection for men, the evening saw the unveiling of the new Superdry + Timothy Everest Womens Sebiro Collection to a very packed audience. At 6pm sharp the curtains opened to the new pieces from the exclusive collection. The Town Coat, The Country Rebel, The Rock Rebel and The Muse, designed specifically for the modern women. From ‘Rock Chic’ to ‘Country Rebel, it is a trans-seasonal collection of core tailored staples, which echo unequalled atention to detail, super cuts and the finest quality cloths around.

Introducing the new Blake leather jacket.
So you can imagine how excited we were to hear there’s not one, but two new Superdy leather jackets joining the fold.
Available in 7 new and exciting colours, they feature a buttersoft finish with single collar, a move away from the oh, so familiar double collar we’ve been famous for in the past, a contrast lining, zip front fastening and two patch pockets.
But what’s the difference, you may ask?
Well, let us tell you!
The Flagship of the North
Leaving in the dark at 5.30am, (until yesterday we didn’t know that time even existed!) we packed the photography equipment and hit the road to join the huge crowds of people waiting to enter the shopping centre at 10am, and we were almost swept off our feet in the excitement of happy shoppers!
The Superdry store, which can be found on the Lower ground floor via the Albion Street entrance, is a whopping 16,000 square feet and our biggest store outside of london. with those figures you can see how it’s been dubbed our flagship of the North!
Decked out in a similar aesthetic to Superdry International, our global flagship store on London’s famous Regent Street, you’ll find a huge TV screened video wall, sleeper-mounted railway carriages and custom built changing rooms.
Were you at the grand opening? Did you pick up an exclusive Superdry ‘Tee in a tin?”

Key Trend: Sports Luxe
Sports luxe is a key trend this season and you needn’t look any further than Superdry to find the pieces you’ll need to have your fashion foot forward this summer.
Our staple piece for women, the Jofi boot, can be dressed up with our scoop back maxi or down with some joggers for that all-important sport-chic look. Add a pair of super series and an orange label hood over a basic body con dress for a casual daytime look. Accessorise your outfit with one of our brightly coloured scuba watches and brighton tote bag for the finishing touch.

Q&A with our in-house MUA
We managed to grab 5 minutes with Natasha, and ask her your beauty woes…
here’s what she had to say!
“What key pieces would you recommend from the Superdry beauty collection?”
“I’m looking for something perfect for a saturday night in town – what would you recommend?”
“I have blonde hair and pale skin, what lip glaze colour would best suit me?”
“What are your key Superdry Beauty pieces that you use when preparing a model for a photoshoot?”
“I’m looking for an everyday look. What would you use for that?”
“Would i use your lip fix like lip balm?”
Natasha: Yes, lipFix is great for sorting out chapped lips – it leaves the lips soft and moisturised.
“What are your top 3 tips of make-up?”
1. Apply a little lip fix when you start your make-up then go on to do everything else. When you come back to do your lipstick you’ll find your lips nice and soft!
2. Add a bit of the highlighter down the centre of your nose and forehead to add a dewy finish to your skin. If you pop a bit on your cupids bow it will make your lips appear fuller, too!
“How do i make my small eyes look bigger?”
Natasha: Oooh, good question! Stay away from dark colours. Try our powder rose eyeshadow, or if you really want your eyes to pop go for secura blue eye shadow shade. It’s such a big shade this season!
“Do you style your make-up around what you wear? How do i do this?”
Natasha: Most days yes, but i tend to go with what mood i am in! If i am feeling bright and playful i love to wear electric pink lip paint. If i don’t feel like wearing much make-up i put on a little eyeliner with lipglaze. I say it’s always best to go with how you feel that day!
“What was the first thing you wanted to play with when you saw the Superdry Beauty?”
Natasha: The eye marker – it looks like a felt tip pen.
“What is your favourite brand of make-up?”
Natasha: Superdry of course!
