It’s been almost six months since we last had a chat with Superdry-sponsored cyclist, James ‘Hank’ Lowsley-Williams, so we hopped on our Superdry 10-Speed and tried to track him down! With a schedule that includes rigorous training, being an ambassador for Team UK Youth and competing in a whole host of races, we managed to grab five minutes with James to ask what he’s been up to.

“The start of this year was eventful to say the least! After meeting the full new Team UK Youth 2012 pro team, I was flying out to Florida to stay with Formula One legend Nigel Mansell for a fun yet extremely hard-working, three-week training camp; it certainly wasn’t a holiday. Shortly after that we were back on the road again, only this time we were heading to Gran Canaria.

The team and I were involved in two gruelling training camps to increase our base fitness. Every day was spent on the bike and that included a lot of mountain climbing! Despite it being my first experience of a proper structured training camp, it was a great chance to spend time with the new team and prepare for our upcoming races.

We swapped the sun for Southampton where it was time for the first of our two races, called the Perfs Pedal road race. All of Team UK Youth came out of the blocks guns blazing and the team managed to set our sprinter up for a great first win of the season.

Next it was time for my first UCI PRO RACE over in Holland, called the ‘Ster van Zwolle’. With over 200 competitors and 170 km to cover, we knew the race was going to be tough. The crosswinds meant groups of cyclists were scattered all over the road, but we didn’t let that put us off. We were averaging over 48 kph.

This is going to be a great year for myself and Team UK Youth and I’m glad that Superdry are there to share it with me!”

We certainly are, James and we’re behind you every step of the way!

It’s London Fashion week once again and the hottest fashionistas, bloggers, photographers and style-setters are sure to be out in force! We’ve been caught up in the flurry of excitement around the most fashionable week as AW12 is promising big things from the street-style look!

Inspired by the catwalk highs, we’ve put together two exclusive women’s and men’s Superdry Spring/Summer 2012 outfits that will see you through the seasons.

We’ve perfected the art form of layered dressing by teaming our waxed fly weight vest with a country flannel shirt and easy shorts. This layered style of dressing mixes an eclectic range of prints and materials to help form your unique look.

And marching in for the men’s look is our military inspired trials jacket paired with our foundry denims and trapper boots for a look that carries an unrivalled silhouette all year long.

It’s been a good few months since we last had a catch up with our friends, Colour Vox (previously known as Hermes), the Gloucester-based indie/rock trio.

This month, Colour Vox are back in the UK and have two gigs lined up at Monto Water Rats, London, on 18th January and 8th February. We’ll be there to support them and hope to see some of you there too!

Young cycling superstar James Lowsley-Williams, or “Hank” to those that know him better, is the talk of the office here at Superdry, thanks to his amazing cycling ability!

19-year-old James is part of Team UK Youth, a leading national youth work charity set up by Formula 1 legend, Nigel Mansell. Team UK Youth helps over 750,000 young people realise their potential through non-formal, accredited education programs and activities.

In James’ first race as a senior rider he narrowly missed out on 1st place of the under 23 category. Undeterred, he placed 30th overall, beating many of the best riders in Europe – a very impressive start to what looks to be a promising cycling career!

The Superdry-sponsored rider aims to represent Team GB at the 2016 Olympic Games and doesn’t seem content with anything less than a gold medal. And with a personal mantra of “if you put your mind and energy into it and if you want it more then anything, you can achieve it” it’s not hard to see why! Pictured above with his trusty super lightweight Cervélo bike, he wears one of his favourite products from the men’s collection, the brush cotton finished Lumberjack Brush Shirts!

We’re thrilled to have James on board and will keep everyone updated on his progress as it happens!

Yesterday, Superdry took a trip to the Morgan Motor Company based in Malvern, UK. The factory was buzzing with activity with cars in all stages of construction. Three were being worked on for their debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, one of them being our own Superdry Morgan three-wheeler!

Let’s give you a quick low-down on the Morgan Company. Harry Morgan built the first car in 1909 with the help of engineering master, William Stephenson-Peach. With its three wheels – two at the front, one at the rear – it was a car/motorbike hybrid, which became renowned for its speed because of its light framework. A unique combination of performance with economy means the three-wheeler can go from 0-60 in 4 seconds with 50 miles to a gallon. Impressive stuff!

The beauty of all Morgan cars is the care and attention behind each production. The oak framing is hand crafted and sanded, the aluminum bodywork is hand-cut and shaped. The details and trims are made according to the buyer’s preferences. One of the leading features about Morgan cars is this bespoke service on each and every vehicle.

With the help of our talented team, the Superdry design was put together focusing on aeronautic influences. A sleek metallic body with the iconic Superdry Japanese text along with distressed, quilted leather interior is what to expect. We managed to catch Richy Baldwin, our graphic designer who was busy hand painting the graphics on the car exterior.

Superdry and Morgan are proud to collaborate on such an exciting project. Two iconic British brands joining forces. Morgan’s exquisite engineering along with Superdry’s skilled design to make the Morgan three-wheeler – Superdry Edition!

Stay tuned for more on the unveiling of the completed car and an interview with Charles Morgan, the grandson of Henry and current owner of the company!
