Mens style site, TheChicGeek.co.uk, founded in 2009 has rapidly become one of the biggest and most respected in the UK, last night Marcus Jaye, the man behind the blog, joined us as we kicked off London Collections: Men with The British Fashion Council. Find out what he thought of our Autumn Winter 2015 collection and Alpine Lodge inspired presentation in our Regent Street flagship store…

“On the eve of London Collections: Men, a.k.a. London men’s fashion week, Superdry, in association with the British Fashion Council, unveiled their latest Autumn/Winter 15 collection in an exclusive event above their flagship store on Regent Street.

Transforming the space into a cosy timbered Alpine lodge with the obligatory moose head above the fireplace and antler chandelier, an imaginary crisp mountain air gave London a refreshing blast of Superdry ski and après-ski style.

Sitting on fur throws, the 18 models, dressed in the latest must-have pieces from Superdry, offered everything you’d need in terms of cold weather style.

New additions to the ‘Superdry Snow’ capsule range were previewed, pushing Superdry’s mountain-sports offering to new heights with many items designed to work on and off the piste.

From duffle coats with technical toggles and quilted linings to army-green flight jackets with faux-fur hoods, the new A/W15 collection didn’t disappoint on its technical and aesthetic details.

Inspired by such iconic menswear themes as the ‘Gentleman Explorer’, ‘Classic Military’ and ‘Gym-Class Hero’, the new collection cleverly combined youth and sport with a refined style and finish.

Accessories included thick-knit marled beanies and matching gloves, Nordic printed scarves, ski goggles and canvas rucksacks. The Union Jack ran throughout, reflecting Superdry’s British roots, and other details, such as enameled buttons and monogrammed denim, showed the subtle attention paid to each piece.

The appreciative audience, which included England Rugby Captain, Chris Robshaw, model, Oliver Cheshire, and presenters Lilah Parsons and Pips Taylor, left coveting the Superdry chalet chic look long before the first snowflakes start to fall next winter.”

Thanks for joining us to kick off London Collections: Men last night

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!
