What a year! 2014 has been incredible!

We kicked off the year as we meant to go on. A star-studded show at the Old Sorting Office for London Collections: Men, where we showcased our winter 2014 collection set the year on a roll. This was shortly followed by the opening of our Premium lounge in our Regent Street store, introducing personal shopping for the first time!

Things didn’t slow down. In March we announced that we would be heading to the Austrian alps for Snowbombing, to host the notorious arctic disco. Partying with Rudimental, Carl Cox, Skream and many more, it was the perfect place to launch our new winter 2014 collection #SuperdrySnow.

Our festival fever hit a high when we jetted off to Coachella to celebrate Poppy Delevingne’s hen do, with sister Cara and friends including Sienna Miller joining us for a weekend of music and Superdry.

In the midst of all that globetrotting we announced that we would be kicking off London Collections: Men for a second time with the British Fashion Council. Launching our summer 2015 collection to the press and to our fans, the night didn’t end at the catwalk. Infamous DJ Mark Ronson took to the decks to finish the night with a bang.

September saw us celebrate fashion with Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, offering personalisation on our leather jackets, a style talk from Lilah Parsons and an evening filled with music from the Fireflies. And the global domination continued with stores opening in Dubai, Malaysia and our first flagship store in Munich, Germany!

October was dubbed outerwear month as we introduced our biggest and most diverse collection to date, for men and women. November was huge – as the long awaited #SuperdrySnow collection, our first technical ski range for men and women, went into stores and online. So well-loved, it was already appearing in shoots with Vogue, GQ, Shortlist and many more! But it didn’t end there, we also extended our collaboration with Saville Row alumni Timothy Everest, with sequin infused styles for women and tie-lined jackets for men.

It has been a year of celebrity with stars such as Idris Elba, Naomi Watts, Nicole Scherzinger, David Tennant, Mark Ronson and many more all sporting their favourite Superdry pieces!

2015 is set to be just as big. In January, for the third time, we are holding the official launch of London Collections: Men, opening stores from Singapore to Hawaii and of course introducing new collections, all to be announced shortly!

Thanks for a great 2014, here’s to 2015!

We recently caught up with Paul Matthews, the winner of our competition to join us at our Autumn/Winter ’14 preview at London Collections: Men.

All Paul had to do was post us a picture showing why he loves Superdry. This is Paul’s winning image – safe to say, he’s a super fan.

Here’s what he had to say about his experience of The Event:

“What can i say? Best party I’ve ever been too! All this for having an obsession with a clothing brand! What Superdry has to offer in A/W14 is incredible –  bold colours and fitted cable knits, you certainly won’t go cold this winter.

“My wife, a lifelong sufferer of my obsession with Superdry, came along with me for the night. We arrived at the Old Sorting Office to be met by a friendly face, who took us up to what i can only describe as walking up the Shard..so many stairs! At the top floor we were greeted with cocktails and a vast bar area that wouldn’t have looked out of place in any Superdry store. As we waited for the event to start, wondering where it would be, we were taken aback by the amount of people here for The Event and the fantastic food being served on illuminated trays. The music, very much like being in-store, kept everyone in anticipation. Then large white doors opened and we were allowed into the hidden catwalk area.

“Once in, sitting in the front row, the show started! Coats, jeans, scarves, hats…as models walked past us, I just kept thinking, ‘I need everything in my wardrobe as soon as this collection is released later this year!’

“I was completely unaware of who i was sitting next to, until my wife pointed them out. Oliver Proudlock from Made in Chelsea, actor Ralph Little and Samuel L Jackson amongst others, we felt a little out of place!

‘The event finished with a rousing round of applause, and then the party started. First with Nick Grimshaw taking to the decks,  followed by Benji Boko – his set list was incredible! As incredible as the food that was going around again – chips, chicken, burgers and more. It was as if they knew that i was going to be there and that i have a very limited selection of favourite foods. Also, with a free bar flowing, i can easily say that that was the best party I’ve been to.

“I can see that, once again, we will see a lot of people walking the streets in Superdry’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, especially in the women’s range. As i mentioned before, my wife has never looked at a Superdry coat and instantly wanted to buy it – that night she saw four that she will be snapping up when they become available!

“All in all, thank you very much to Superdry for choosing my collection picture as your winner, and for putting on such a great evening for us!”

Thanks Paul, glad you had a great time. Don’t forget to check out the pics on Facebook and Instagram #SuperdryLCM
