Exciting things were happening at our store in One New Change shopping centre last Friday – we invited two nail technicians to join us for an afternoon to treat and pamper some lucky Superdry fans!
Our nail bar was jam-packed throughout the day as we got to show off both our spectrum of nail paints and our new Superdry Beauty range.
Customers were also treated to a look at our new SS13 collection while they were being pampered!
…What a great way to spend an afternoon!
The fashion elite have been on top form during London Fashion Week 2013, and never one to miss a fashion and beauty opportunity, we were there too.
Before heading to the capital, we caught up with our in-house stylist, Natalie, to find out what she thinks the capital’s fashionistas will be rocking.
And as predicted, that’s what we saw!
Amongst all the bright neons and contrast prints we showed off our new Superdry Beauty collection to a host of of hand picked bloggers, including Bunnipunch, Dutchess Roz, Really Ree, Acid Brights and Glam and Glitter to name a few.
The music industry’s finest gathered on the red carpet in London last night for the 2013 Brit Awards and what a stylish red carpet it was!
Fashion wise, we absolutely loved what we saw. (click the images if you want to get the look!)
Justin Timberlake was looking, and sounding, as sharp as ever during his preview of his new track, “mirrors” and the One Direction boys… well when do they ever fail to please in the style department!
Taylor Swift undoubtedly dropped many jaws in the O2 arena whilst Emeli Sandé went for a more subtle, but no less stylish look.

There are love hearts, roses, cards and all things lovey-dovey here at Superdry HQ today – we guess the fact that it’s valentine’s day has something to do with it.
So, with this in mind we took ourselves off around the creative studio to find out which Superdry items the design team love.
It seems that the Superdry + Timothy Everest Town Coat and the Skinny Denim Jacket are the favourites amongst the Social Media team, whilst the graphic design boys are loving the graphic print tees. (no surprise here!)
However, in true PR style, they’re not one to be without their accessories.
But that’s enough about what we love. Which Spring Summer piece do you love?

Located within the Arctic Circle, deep in Sweden’s tundra, you and a friend could win an unparalleled ICEHOTEL experience with activities such as the chance to ride on a snowmobile, trying your hand (or chainsaw) at ice sculpting and the potential to see the breathtaking aerial light show that make up the Northern Lights.
And of course, who would forget the hotel itself.
We were lucky enough to secure an interview with Arne Bergh, the Creative Director of ICEHOTEL and a member of the Art and Design Group at ICEHOTEL since the early 1990s. Arne is one of the major players behind developing the design, architectural and building techniques that have enabled ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden to remain best in class.
Superdry asks the questions:
Superdry (SD): “The idea of having a hotel made entirely of ice is pretty out there. Were there initial concerns that the idea might be too unique?”
Arne Bergh (AB): “I would say it is the opposite. Every year, ICEHOTEL is reinvented with a unique look and feel to it and that is what keeps us being innovative and carrying on pushing the boundaries of what can be done with ice and snow.”
SD: “Talk us through the design process. From inception each year, how many people are involved and how long the ICEHOTEL takes to build from conception to fully operational hotel?”
AB: “In March and April we harvest the ice from Torne River that we will need for next year’s ICEHOTEL. 5000 tonnes of ice are stored indoors over summer in minus six degrees Celsius. In October we start building and in November artists arrive from all over the world to build their design concept sketches. About 100 people – artists, builders, light engineers and ICEHOTELs Art & Design Group work intensely over about seven weeks until the ICEHOTEL stands ready to open the doors to its first guests in the beginning of December. It remains open until mid-April when it melts back to the river and we return what we’ve borrowed to Torne.”
SD: “How much ice is used to build ICEHOTEL?”
AB: “1,000 tonnes of Torne river ice and 30,000 cubic meters of “snice” – a blend between snow and ice that we make using Torne river water and snow cannons. It is more solid and stronger than snow but has better insulating properties than ice. The snice is what we use to make the vaults and corridors.”
SD: “Every year completely bespoke rooms are constructed – can you give us a flavour of some of the designs for the hotel this season?”
AB: “Contrasts! We never use a theme for designs at ICEHOTEL – the focus is on using Torne river ice as an art material. This year we have some galactic inspired suites – one with UFOs landing in the Arctic Taiga forest with the Northern Lights sweeping the sky above, and one that looks like the interior of a spaceship. We have one with raindrops and a minimalistic French cubic design. One suite gives the impression you are standing inside the belly of a blue whale. New for this year are the Northern Light suites which are designed in-house by ICEHOTEL artists. They are light installations simulating the Aurora Borealis across the ceiling of the room, so you can lay in bed and look up at the lights.”
SD: “Like a graffiti artist, whose work is notoriously short-lived, is there any sadness that such beautiful and time-consuming designs will melt and vanish after only one season?”
AB: “I don’t see it that way. In my view that is what keeps it interesting, and also it means that you can continue to push yourself and try new ideas – like the northern Light suites this year for example.”
SD: “ICEHOTEL promises an experience like no other. Can you give a flavour of what people staying in ICEHOTEL can expect through the course of their stay?”
AB: “I think the pre-conception people have of what a night in a hotel made of ice and snow might be like is very different to the experience they have once they’re there. What I’m often told is that it is not as cold as people expect, and that the experience is quite surreal because it is so quiet and tranquil in there.”
The competition ends soon; so enter now to be in with a chance of winning this once-in-a-lifetime ICEHOTEL experience!
We’ve been following the rise of Team UK Youth cyclist James Lowsley-Williams for a while and were delighted to see James getting even more recognition with a mention in leading Cycling publication Cycling News.
We last caught up with Superdry-sponsored James back in February after a vigorous three week training camp in Florida. It’s great to see how far he has come in such a short time and how his career is progressing. Merging talent, hard work and some legendary mentors (Magnus Backstedt and former Formula One World Champion Nigel Mansell), James is now part of Team UK Youth, and, as he explains to Cycling News, plans on working his way up the team pecking order.
And not wanting to let James get away without talking telling us a little more about him, we asked him a few quick-fire questions, with Twitter-like answers of 140 characters or less. (We are a Social Media team after all!)
Are you a street shopper or and online buyer?
I shop on the street as I like trying clothes on.
What’s your essential item of clothing?
What has been your proudest career highlight
Probably coming in the top 5 in the National Track Championships competing with Olympic and World Champions.
What’s your favourite mobile app?
You can’t go wrong with angry birds when you do a lot of travelling. It’s a great time killer.
What are you looking forward to over the next six months?
The hot weather training camps and the forthcoming big races abroad. 2013 is going to be a great year. I cant wait!
What’s your typical day-off outfit?
Who is your hero?
My grandfather. He really is amazing and he wants me to ride the Tour de France so he can get a Winnebago and follow; visiting all the nice restaurants.
That’s all for now, but thanks James. We’re looking forward to catching up later on in 2013!
It’s a new year and with that brings pangs of guilt about how much we ate and drank over the holiday period. So that got us thinking; “there’s no better way to get back into the ‘i’m off to the gym’ frame of mind than to treat ourselves to some chic and stylish Superdry sportswear!”
We reckon that even though you’ll be at the gym, and working up a sweat, you should definitely be wearing something that’s as fashionable as it is functional, and our selection of men’s and women’s joggers make the perfect gym buddy!
If that’s not motivation enough, we don’t know what is!
