With Superdry Rugby hitting the shelves and with the Rugby season well and truly underway we caught up with Gloucester Rugby Fly Half, James Hook to ask him what is next, any tips he has and his greatest rugby moments.

Superdry: If there were six things you could tell any rising rugby player, what would they be?

James Hook:

1- always follow your dreams.

2- keep practicing even when nobody else is.

3- listen to your family, friends and coaches and always be willing to take on good information and ignore bad information.

4- don’t let setbacks get in the way of what you want to achieve.

5- recover and eat well to give yourself the best chance possible.

6- most importantly play with a smile on your face, enjoy and remember it’s only a game.

SD: Earlier this year, James Holder, our brand & design director was asked in an interview what his personal 10 commandments were; do you have one training commandment that you live by?

JH: I always make sure I prepare fully for each game e.g. know my roles/moves for the up and coming game and practice my skills/kicking during the week until I’m happy.

SD: There was a huge turning point for Superdry, when we went from being a one man band to the global brand we are today, what is the most iconic moment you’ve had in your rugby career?

JH: Winning 2 grand slams and a championship with my country and representing the British and Irish lions.

SD: We are heavily into our music, with new playlists released every two weeks on our SoundCloud profile, which six songs get you amped up for a game or that you are listening to at the moment?

JH:

1-Ed sheeran- Lego house

2-stereophonics-Dakota

3-matchbox 20-real world

4-avicii-levels

5-flo rider-good feeling

6-David guetta feat Rihanna -who’s that chick

SD: We are obsessed with our product, the detail, fabric, design – everything, you are a Superdry fan as well, is there a Superdry product you just couldn’t do without?

JH: The Superdry polos and hoodies oh and joggers!

SD: So the final question, you’ve just moved back to the UK to join Gloucester Rugby (just around the corner from Superdry HQ) but what’s next for you?

JH: To keep improving as a player, keep building as a team with Gloucester Rugby and try to make the squad for the up and coming World Cup with Wales.

This season we’re launching #SuperdryRugby, a collection of casuals designed with rugby supporters and players in mind. We have three distinct styles including this, the Herculean, as seen on Gloucester Rugby and England Rugby winger Jonny May. This style comes in three block colours, each are complemented by rich details that pay homage to vintage rugby shirts; from embroidered flag wool under-collars, applique numbers & a chest badge to quilted labelling as well as hot-stamped Superdry leather patches and branded buttons.

The Training Ground strip takes old school rugby to a whole new level, shown here on talented Gloucester Rugby fly half, James Hook it is available in six different colours; the stripe detail, jersey fabric and shield chest badges inspire an authentic vintage rugby feel.

Then we come onto Valiant a range of five shirts designed with the 1970’s and 80’s national rugby kits in mind, each shirt has an incredibly dry hand-feel while the back boasts oversized printed numbering. Every shirt comes with a printed flag under-collar (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales & Italy) complementing the colour of the strip.

The whole collection has a new more relaxed fit and will be available from mid February. If you want to register your interest, click here.

2015 is a year of rugby, and on January 8th we revealed our latest collection #SuperdryRugby, designed with the player in mind. To make sure it was up to scratch off the pitch we asked winger Jonny May (Gloucester Rugby and England Rugby) plus fly half James Hook (Gloucester Rugby) to don some of the new shirts.

With a calendar filled with Rugby dates we realised it’s not just the players that need a kit fit for purpose, every supporter needs something that will stand up to the test. Inspired by old school rugby strips the collection is a looser fit, with vintage badge patches and statement collars.

The collection will be launched at the beginning of February, just in time for round 2 of the Six Nations consisting of three styles; herculean, training ground and valiant, to be the first to know when it’s available click here to register your interest.

Last week, the Superdry team headed out to sunny Coachella festival (via Palm Springs) to host model Poppy Delevingne’s VIP pre-wedding bash. The first few days were spent prepping a beautiful estate & house with plenty of Superdry goodies including jelly whopper shoppers, denim hot pants, towels, flip flops & beach balls – all in fun, fresh colours to keep the party fun & girly!

Saturday was the big day, & the piece-de-resistance arrived- an oversized rustic Superdry sign, which was situated against an epic mountainous backdrop. It was in front of this sign that we set up arrangements of fresh flowers- including incredibly rare poppies for their namesake- & a beautiful bespoke brunch spread created by cool New York restaurant, the Wayfarer.

The guests enjoyed tunes spun to a palm tree backdrop by Poppy’s friend, DJ Jamo -who kept the tunes strictly old school! An iconic Union Jack flag, distressed in Superdry colours, shrouded the DJ booth & made sure everyone knew the Brits had arrived!

The pool area was a favourite hangout with a hint of fun added in the form of Superdry beach balls & towels in orange and hot pink; creating a perfect chill-out paradise.

During in the evenings, guests headed to the festival to enjoy the arts, music and fashion on offer…Superdry faves (recently seen at Snowbombing) including Rudimental & Nina Kraviz also made an appearance!

The Superdry team were representing en-masse wearing festival-ready items hot from the new Spring/Summer Collection; favourites included the escape tie dye crew, shockwave sunglasses & denim hot pants.

We’re packing our bags for one of the biggest parties of the year in the Californian desert. That’s right, we’re off to Coachella! Famous for its celebrity style, A-list hang-outs and the latest, greatest bands & DJs in the world, this is one festival you don’t want to miss.

If dressing for summer’s hottest parties leaves you cold, our SS14 collection is an access-all-areas pass to standout festival style. Denim is a festival staple, from hotpants to double denim combos; luckily the Superdry Denim collection is bigger and better than ever. Boys shorts get colourful or stay classic in our commodity chino shorts range, which look great teamed with a hoodie or our classic flag jacket. Party-loving girls should rock carefree boho style with our raw edge hotpants & easy summer dresses. Add some tailoring to redefine casual cool; check out our Timothy Everest collection for inspiration.

Use accessories to punch up your look: our alumni bag comes in a kaleidoscope of shades (perfect for carrying your Superdry beach towel, passport holder, hat & wallet!). Get a pop of colour with one of our great watches &, remember, late night parties and sun-soaked days mean sunglasses should be at the top of your packing list. Footwear gets practical: choose from trainers, chic sandals for girls and flip flops to team with every outfit.
