The summer might be looking a bit hit and miss, but inject some brightness of your own with our awesome rockstar sunnies.
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!
Congratulations to our competition winner Rebecca Edwards, who won the holiday of a lifetime – a 10 day trip to Australia with £500 to spend in the Westfield Superdry store.
Among her 10 days of sea, sand and sun, Rebecca found the time to visit the Botanic Gardens via the Sydney Opera House, checked out Sea Life Sydney and the Wild Life Sydney at Darling Harbour and took in the epic views on a ferry ride from Sydney harbour to Manly.
“We had the most amazing time and are hopefully planning to go back to Australia.”

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.

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!
Summer. So near yet so far.
The clocks have changed, the weather’s (hopefully) going to get warmer and that devil has appeared on your shoulder again that screams “go on, crack out the shorts, flip flops and a pair of sunnies. It’s warm enough; honest!”
This season, we really have pulled out all the stops with our latest (and greatest) range of Superdry sunglasses.
So don’t wait for our only day of summer to come and go; complete your summer wardrobe with Superdry.
With the ‘great’ british weather going the way it is, we’re not feeling too hopeful that the sun will make a proper appearance anytime soon…
From our much-loved hero piece, the Superdry windcheater, to the bold new, nautical-inspired boat jacket, we’ve got you well and truly covered come rain or shine. (let’s face it, it’s most probably rain!)
Top of our list this spring (yes, it really is officially Spring) is the cropped hooded raincoat. Available in two colourways - we prefer the white, but it’s only for the brave – and features a double breast with removable hood, double layer collar, embroidered shoulder logo and 2 front pockets.
Wear it dressed up or throw it on over your jeans and a tee. It really is that versatile.
“what products are we loving from the current collection.”
Previously we’ve shouted about our graphic tees, waxed lyrical about our joggers, and make a whole lot of noise about our knitwear, but we’ve recently spotted something that has slipped through our net – the retro gilet.
In colourways that wouldn’t look out of place on the slopes in the 80s (the cool 80s, not the garish 80s!) the Retro Gilet is available for both men and women and is the perfect piece of outerwear to use when layering up.
