It’s come to that time already, it’s the end of the summer. We’re already mourning the loss of the sunshine and the blue skies, but luckily there’s still time to soak it up and party over on the party isle of Ibiza. The closing events at all the top clubs are celebrating the end of the season with epic blowout events.

Some of the biggest clubs in Ibiza have already started celebrating with Ushuaia open air club ending on a high with a massive closing pool party, hosted by David Guetta and featuring Afrojack, Robin Schulz and NERVO. Don’t fret though, there’s still loads more to look forward to if you are still planning a trip.

Part one of Creams’ closing party takes place this coming Thursday and features Duke Dumont with loads of other great acts. The event takes place at Amnesia in both the main room and on the terrace. Amnesia is also hosting the House of Madness closing party with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike on Sunday the 13th September. Amnesia’s own closing party isn’t until October 3rd so you’ve got plenty of time to sort cover at work!

Another bash not to miss is Aoki’s Playhouse closing party. Steve Aoki hosts a 7 hour music extravaganza with Boys Noize, Angel Linde, Busy P and more. Tickets are disappearing fast for this Pacha hosted event though, so make sure you jump on it fast!

Now for the most important part, looking cool and feeling comfortable is key as you embark on your 7 hour dancing session. We’ve put together these perfect looks for all the biggest closing events.

For the guys, we’ve paired a simple pair of dark shorts with a short sleeved tropical shirt, white sneakers and reflective shades to give that laid back summer look. Prints have been massive this summer so it’s that perfect summer send-off shirt. We’ve also added one of our Superdry watches with an orange face to keep you on time to all the events.

For the girls, we love the staple denim hot-pants paired with our floaty boho blue top to keep you cool in those packed club events. We also love these silver pumps so much and they work perfectly with this blue outfit, and will save the dreaded heel cramp from hours of dancing! We’ve again added a watch and shades to keep the accessories simple. The perfect outfit to enjoy Ibiza in the day time and to party the night away in.

Don’t forget to snap and share your Ibiza club antics with us using #Superdry or on Twitter @superdry or instagram @superdryglobal.

This week we caught up with Scott Purcell from Man of Many. The Australian based blogger who teamed up with friend and co-founder Frank Arthur in December 2012 to create what is fast become one of the most well read corners of the Australian internet. Bringing their readers fresh stories daily spanning from cars, fashion, lifestyle, tech & home. Here’s what Scott has to say…

Superdry: Tell us about Man of Many

Scott Purcell: Man of Many is basically an avenue for Frank and me to share all the cool things we find online. As two guys, it’s inherently targeted towards men and is pretty much a giant wish list of all the gear a guy could possible want. We cover everything from gadget reviews, the latest fashion styles, men’s interest articles, cool videos, interviews with interesting people but we’re also starting to get into video.

Our ethos has always been to stick to the things we ourselves personally like and we love it when we can introduce our readers to fresh, exciting and unique brands or products they might not find elsewhere.

SD: How did it all begin?

SP: We used to follow a bunch of other blogs from the States and send articles to each other of the cool things we’d find. It was around 2012 and most of them were getting pretty successful, so we thought, why not start one ourselves? At the time there was a real shortage of Australian blogs for the sort of stuff we were into. Nearly three years later, little did we know how much work would be involved but we love running it. From humble beginnings it’s turned into a viable business and successful site which makes us really proud.

SD: What’s the best thing about being a blogger?

SP: I guess it’s the opportunities it has presented us in terms of the amazing people we get to meet, the events and experiences. When we started out the site we never thought we’d be interviewing the likes of Andrew Bogut or Tim Cahill. We also got to travel to Wellington, NZ this year as part of our site which was an unreal time. It’s really been a learning process for us as we’ve gone along (neither of us come from an advertising, writing or PR background) but we’ve made some great friends along the way. Some of the freebies are nice too.

SD: What advice would you give to aspiring bloggers?

SP: I actually stole this tip from Maria Popova after I heard her on the Tim Ferris Podcast but no words have rung truer in my head and it’s to write for yourself. Don’t write for other people. While this might sound strange, people love reading about topics that the author is genuinely passionate or interested about. As soon as you start to write for others, it becomes a little false and a little bit like you’re trying too hard. Make the articles and topics special for yourself and something you enjoy and the readers will follow.

SD: How would you describe your personal style? What sets you apart from other fashion bloggers?

SP: I’m actually a bit of a geek by nature and to be honest, I don’t think I have the best style personally. I think I’ve got a good eye for style and what looks good but sometimes struggle to pull it off for myself! Frank is definitely the more stylish one of us I’d say. In terms of my tastes, I like things that are approachable and not pretentious. I think a lot of other fashion bloggers can try very hard to create something that looks absolutely amazing in photos but often when I look at them I think “I’d probably never wear that or feel comfortable doing so”. In that sense we try to feature items we’d actually wear ourselves.

Other thing is that we try to keep the products the focus of the site rather than ourselves. It’s pretty rare you’ll see any photos of us on the site. It’s about the products not us!

SD: In terms of fashion, what do you think is going to be big this season?

SP: I think men in general are becoming a lot more educated around their fashion. Whether it’s doing proper research around their watches or the physical properties of things like active-wear, men are becoming much more informed consumers. I definitely see mechanical watches on the rise and navy & white as the new black.

SD: What is your favourite item in your closet?

SP: Definitely a tough one. This winter I’ve really been digging my jacket from Vanishing Elephant. Always a fan of a well fitted crisp white shirt when I go out. My sunnies from Pacifico Opitcal are also probably a favourite.

SD: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?

SP: K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid. As I mentioned already I’m pretty crap at putting together an outfit for myself but I’d got a good sense of what might work on someone else!

A few general tips:

  • If you’re at work, always make sure you’re shoes are polished and shirt ironed.
  • Always wear a tie darker than your shirt.

SD: What do you do when you’re not blogging?

SP: I actually still work for a bank in Sydney as my full time job. So the blog is only a part time gig at the moment but we’re hoping we can take it full time soon! Otherwise outside of work and blogging I’m a big sports fan and really excited for the Rugby World Cup this year. I also love to ski.

SD: What’s currently on your bucket list? For example, if you had three things you’d love to achieve in the next 5 years, what would it be?

I have a few other sites I want to build and get off the ground. They’re mainly focused around discovering other great blogs. It’s a pretty tricky thing to do in Australia and a really fragmented market.

Just listing things off the top of my head as they come to me now… but I want to get back into my art and painting, exercise a bit more and get my six pack back!, Travel more, eat well, fall in love… all the normal things.

Finally, what’s on your Superdry wish list this month?

So I just checked out the site and was pretty impressed. Three items I really liked are:

Whilst clouds above us may have turned grey and the calendar will shortly remind us to return indoors, the festival spirit is still very much alive and we’re not ready to hibernate for winter just yet!

This weekend,  I indulged myself in an embarrassing number of doughnuts and Mr. Whippy’s whilst rocking to the sounds of contemporary electronic artists, DJ’s and performers from all over at the SW4 festival in Clapham Common. Although the forecast promised a bit of a drizzle, I couldn’t have requested for better weather to bring out a bit of leather, and I paired my Superdry biker jacket with matching ankle boots and one of my hands down favourite styles to wear at a festival: the maxi dress. I played around with mine, and tied it with a vintage scarf and wore it down later on.

Being a 90’s kid, I inevitably had to hear Basement Jaxx play, and it was nothing short of awesome! Having mostly heard it on my discman back then, when they were still around to now be hearing them on stage sugar-fuelled on sparkly raspberry icing doughnuts… needless to say, this was an event that left the viewer speechless and entertained in a way, only London knows how!

Superdry would also like to give a special thanks to the team at ListenUp for inviting us to their exclusive SW4 aftershow hosted by Faithless.

School is officially out! Whether you’re considering a trip with your mates or a family holiday somewhere exotic, our #Superdrysummer getaway guide has everything you need to know. Fast becoming the place for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene, Dubai makes for a luxurious holiday destination.

Five reasons you’ll love Dubai

1. The sun always shines

In the summer, practically every day is sunny. In the winter, rainfall is usually modest and most days are sunny. August is the hottest month with an average temperature of 36°C (96°F). If you can take the heat, August is the best month to swim in the sea and for the best price travel deals.

2. There are no bad hotels

The benefits of building a world-class tourism destination in 15 years means that there aren’t many bad hotels in Abu Dhabi or Dubai.  In fact, most of them are 4 or 5-star. Make sure you visit Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest hotel and building. Check out the exhibit on the building’s history then take the fastest lift in the world to the top. Hold on to your hat – it only takes a few seconds.

3. Transport is cheap

Thanks to inexpensive gasoline, taxis within the city won’t cost you more than $5 or $10. The cheapest option to get across town would be the fully automated Dubai Metro. It allows you to walk straight into major tourist attractions like the Mall of the Emirates (hosting Ski Dubai) or the Dubai Mall (which is where you enter the Burj Khalifa)

4. There’s so much to do!

Where do we start! The world’s tallest building, indoor skiing, luxurious bars and restaurants, aquariums, water parks, hot air balloon rides, museums, desert adventure safaris, sand boarding, F1 racetrack, drinks on top of the world’s only 7-star hotel – it’s safe to say that you will never be bored in Dubai.

5. The Shopping rocks!

Dubai is known as the shopping capital of the Middle East, and the best bargains are generally in the souks. Even luxury items such as carpets, electronics, gold and textiles can be bought relatively cheaply if you know where to look. The age-old souks, ultra-modern shopping malls and the promise of tax-free prices redefine the whole concept of retail therapy. Also, for all your holiday essentials, pop by the Superdry Store located in the Dubai Emirates Mall.

Although Dubai is an amazing place to visit, there are some important rules that must be obeyed.

Clothing

Revealing clothes are unlawful to an extent. When in public, always ensure your skirts or shorts reach at least just above the knee and ensure your shoulders are covered. In private resorts, hotels, and shopping centres and out in the desert you can relax – swimwear is also acceptable at the pool area. To be safe, always dress conservatively. Men must always wear a top unless they are on the beach/at the pool.

Public signs of affection

Believe it or not, kissing in public is not allowed and can warrant jail time. Not just kissing, also holding hands and cuddling is considered unlawful in public.

Partying

Visitors can only drink alcohol in licensed hotels or clubs, and drinking alcohol or being drunk in public is an offence. Playing loud music in public areas is also considered unlawful. So, if you’re after a late night party holiday with your mates, maybe Magaluf is a better option…

This week is packed full of music festival goodness with the awesome South West Four kicking off on Saturday, where were sending our lucky competition winner, Morgan Haringman, to enjoy the delights of top acts like Faithless and Basement Jaxx. But there’s another staple festival event gracing the last bank holiday of the year – Reading & Leeds!

We think it’s safe to say that like Glastonbury, most people will experience this festival at least once in their lives. Starting this Friday (28th August), this three-day music extravaganza is set to feature some of the most talented bands out there. With headline acts Mumford & Sons, Metallica and The Libertines taking to the main stage, it’s going to be a rocking festival.

Reading & Leeds twin festivals take place simultaneously, with acts performing twice over the weekend at the two different locations – double dose of musical delight! Held at Richfield Avenue, Reading and Bramham Park, near Wetherby; Reading Festival is actually the world’s oldest popular music festival still running.

So, if you want to get that signature festival look, we’ve put together the ultimate outfits to get you ready and raring to rave.

Kicking it off with something for the lads, our Hero Benjamin soft leather jacket is a must-have for all wardrobes as it goes with anything! Leather and denim are so hot right now, so we’ve styled this with our Officer Slim Denim shorts – with its five-pocket design you’ll have lots of room to keep your phone on you for those memorable snaps. Finish this off with a statement tee, like our Tie Dye T-shirt from the Orange Label range, and you’ve got a winning outfit!

Now, with the weather being so temperamental it can be difficult to work out what to wear to a festival, but we say don’t let the rain spoil your style (just remember a pair of wellies!). Our Core Hot Pants are classically styled but finished with a embroidered vintage twist – perfectly girly. Couple this with our Ombre Floral Saints cropped tee and glitter finish Super Campon boots and you’ll be ready to face the weather come rain or shine.

Superdry Summer Destinations Barcelona

Barcelona is a captivating seaside city with boundless culture, fabled architecture, and not to mention a world-class drinking and dining scene! Our guest writer Emily Steer gives us the lowdown on the best places to visit while holidaying in the city…

So, you’ve booked your flights and you’re off to Barcelona! Firstly, it would just be criminal to visit the city and not explore its cultural hotspots stemming from the city’s 2000 years of history. It’s nearly impossible to miss Barcelona’s unique architecture, which is made up of a stunning combination of modernity and traditional Catalonian infrastructure. The best place to check out these striking man-made scenes would be Antoni Gaudi’s Park Guell, a stylish park composed of massive stone structures and mosaics inspired by the uneven natural landscapes of Barcelona. It has now been declared a World Heritage Site celebrating the works of some of the world’s most groundbreaking modern architects.

Just a few miles away from Park Guell is the slightly less visually intense, but still spectacular, town Horta Guinardo. This is Barcelona’s third largest district, which is slightly more rural. Unspoiled by swanky nightspots and expansive retail parks, it is an unpretentious hilltop neighbourhood allowing tourists to explore open green spaces and check out what it’s like to live in this stunning city.

From all the walking around town, you’ll probably start to get a bit tired and need a glass of sangria and some paella. There are hundreds of restaurants to choose from, offering an extensive range of tapas all to be enjoyed while looking over the Mediterranean seafront. Loosen your belt and get ready to gorge yourself on croquetas, patatas bravas, and tortillas and, of course, some delicious churros to finish off.

Superdry Summer Destinations Barcelona

If you’re not too stuffed after all that, there’s plenty more of Barcelona to enjoy. Get some practical shoes on, like a pair of Superdry Low Pros, and venture to Barcelona’s biggest festival, La Merce. The festival lasts four days in the middle of September and celebrates some of the city’s oldest and coolest traditions. There’ll be fire runs, parades, acrobatics, projection shows, music, street performers and, of course, a bit more traditional Spanish food! Lads – this super stylish summer look will keep you cool while soaking up the festival vibes, while ladies, these cute denim shorts and soft feel, loose fit blouse will take you from day to night.

Busy and bustling by day, Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter is heaving by night. There’s plenty more Catalonian culture to soak up if you head out to some nightclubs and bars. One of Barcelona’s oldest and most popular is Los Tarantos, famous for its nightly Flamenco performances and full-service bar where you can sit back with a glass of Vermouth and enjoy the show! Close by, cocktail bar The Milk Bar has infinite Spanish cocktails to choose from! But if you’re all full up of Spanish culture, Barcelona offers a traditional Irish pub experience, Paddy Flaherty’s bar, incredibly popular with tourists. Here you can watch any sport you want, drink any beer and enjoy games of beer pong all night long.

Superdry Summer Destinations Barcelona

Obviously, there are some slightly less hardcore nights going on elsewhere. El Born gives a more sophisticated slice of Barcelona’s nightlife. Here you can trawl the narrow backstreets and check out trendy cafes and quieter bars, such as Cat Bar adorned, with some interesting modern art. If you’re feeling peckish, this is one of Barcelona’s only bars to serve all vegan food to relieve your stomach from all the rich chorizo you’ll have been stuffing yourself with!

Now that you’re in the know of all the best places to go, all that’s left to do is have an amazing time!
