It’s hard to admit, but the nights are drawing in already, chilly September mornings are on the way and – here at OD’s – we have just received our first AW18 Dsquared2 offering. The D2 brothers have cranked up the bar this season, presenting a transitional wardrobe that will see you through mild autumn days and cold winter nights. Once again, they have turned to their Canadian roots for inspiration and a wild west cowboy theme runs throughout the entire collection. Think buffalo-checks, rhinestone detailing and elaborate sequin work, all on a canvas of rich leather and denim. Dean and Dan Caten have a knack for giving classic day-to-day staples the high-end glamour treatment and the AW18 range of Mens Dsquared Clothing definitely lives up to expectations.
Here we pull out a few of the highlights from the collection, including the old faithful styles that we all rely on and noting the fresh new designs that we reckon you should be donning this autumn. So why not have a read and then head over to our full Dsquared Clothing Collection to see more.
The Signature Styles by Dsquared2
Dsquared2 release a new collection twice a year and each collection taps into a different theme and includes a variety of fresh designs. However, no matter what theme the brothers choose to focus on, there are some styles that are guaranteed to come back time and time again. These are the popular wardrobe essentials and they have certainly earnt their place in the autumn-winter line-up.
It’s fair to say, distressed denim is a bit of a speciality for the Caten brothers and much of the mens Dsquared clothing range is detailed with rips, faded patches, whiskering and frays. Take for example the Mens Dsquared2 Cool Guy Jeans. These are a classic day-to-day staple; just a pair of distressed denim jeans, with a five-pocket design, a tailored slim fit, and vintage-inspired detailing throughout. But, thanks to their high-quality construction and distinctive designer feel, they sell out season after season and they’re back for AW18 – available in dark-wash navy, light-wash blue, and grey.
A second signature style, returning for AW18, is the Mens Dsquared2 Distressed Long Sleeve Shirt. This traditional silhouette has an incredibly rugged and worn-in feel; cut from blue stretch denim, with ochre stitch detailing, multiple brand tags, and an abundance of old and distressed features. Here at OD’s, we recommend wearing it open with a short-sleeved Dsquared t-shirt and – if you can dare to double the denim – combine it with a pair of the aforementioned cool guy jeans. These are understated yet distinctive mens Dsquared clothing and they will create an instant high-end look.
Running full steam ahead, from last year’s mens Dsquared range into the new AW18 collection, the Canadian brothers proudly reintroduce the Mens Dsquared2 551 Runner Trainers. These are another mainstay and hugely iconic design by Dsquared2. Up for grabs this autumn in both a black and white colourway, they feature multiple textured contrasts throughout and are finished with embossed brand detailing. They offer maximum levels of day-to-day comfort and streetwear style and they are exactly what you need to add a touch of designer fashion to your everyday ensemble.
Fresh Designs for the Mens Dsquared AW18 Collection
Rolling with the rodeo theme, the AW18 ready-to-wear collection includes both timeless classics with a wild west and glamorous twist and a subtle nod to the brother’s Canadian heritage. For example, the brand has introduced a new range of self-promotion Dsquared t-shirts – which are casual and understated and make reference to the Caten brothers in some unique way. Our season favourite has to be the Mens Dsquared2 Circle Print T-Shirt in Navy Blue. It may be simple, but it features the brand’s signature distressed detailing throughout, and the subtle circle logo is just enough to give it that distinctive designer touch. We’re also loving the Mens Dsquared2 Tape Print Sweatshirt. By contrast, this long-sleeved jumper is not-so-subtle, but it perfectly embraces the “logomania” trend of late and it will create an unmistakable and iconic day-to-day look.
Metallics and Sequins
Fresh for AW18, many classic designs have also been given an irreverent and glamorous make-over, with metallic logo embossments and sparkly sequin detailing. Take for example the Mens Dsquared2 Metallic Logo T-Shirt, available in both black and white. This simple day-to-day tee is a tailored classic; cut from luxurious pure cotton, with short sleeves and a regular straight fit. However, with a bold metallic logo printed across the front of the design, it has an incredibly distinctive designer feel and it is a fantastic option if you like to keep on top of the latest trends. The Mens Dsquared2 Sequin Logo T-shirt is another fantastic example. Despite its casual silhouette, the front panel is embroidered with glitzy gold sequins and it takes the idea of glam-rock to a completely new level.

Most people lead a hectic and fast-paced lifestyle. With the pressures of a high-flying job, a young family to look after and a list of household chores to keep on top of, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, it’s important to remember, from time to time, you need to relax and unwind and have a little “you” time. The 15th August is National Relaxation Day – a day that is completely dedicated to sitting back, taking it easy, and doing something that you enjoy. So why not enjoy a quiet morning on the sofa watching trashy daytime TV or perhaps go for a leisurely stroll in the local park? Alternatively, you could indulge in a little retail therapy…
Online shopping is a kind of mini-holiday for the mind. It gives you something else to think about, pushing away the stresses and anxieties of day-to-day life and, of course, treating yourself to something nice is guaranteed to give your mood a bit of a boost. Here at OD’s Designer Clothing, we can’t think of a better way to spend National Relaxation Day than settling down with a tablet and bagging some new designer clothing. Put your feet up, make the most of this laid-back 24 hours, and check out our top picks from the hottest designer labels currently on the market.
Treat Yourself to True Religion
Since bursting onto the style scene in 2002, True Religion has been leading the way with their fashion-forward line of designer clothing. Their horseshoe and laughing Buddha logo has become synonymous with quality craftsmanship and bold designs and – with a fantastic new collection recently making its way into our store – it is the perfect place to start your retail therapy session.
Take for example the Mens True Religion Seasonal Buddha T-Shirt. Crafted from luxuriously soft pure cotton, this short-sleeved t-shirt features an all-over camouflage print in white, grey and yellow and iconic branding can be found to both the front and back of the design. It is bold and distinctive and not necessarily something you would usually buy – which, in our opinion, makes it the perfect option for National Relaxation Day! Alternatively, you could go for something a little more understated and update your casual day-to-day collection with the Mens True Religion Circuitz T-Shirt. Available in a traditional black colourway, it boasts the iconic horseshoe logo to the front and it is an easy way to add a touch of luxury to your everyday wardrobe, giving yourself that new-clothes-buzz.
For the ladies looking to relax and unwind with a little retail therapy, we also recommend the Womens True Religion Collection. We particularly love the Womens True Religion Jennie Curvy Skinny Jeans and, to create a high-end and distinctive look, we recommend pairing them with the Womens True Religion Foil T-Shirt and the Womens Faux Fur Bomber Jacket. Animal prints are incredibly on-trend for AW18 and, with this style currently up for grabs as part of our designer clothes online outlet, there’s no need to feel guilty about sitting back and treating yourself.
Loving the Love Moschino
Here at OD’s, we are currently in love with the new Love Moschino Collection. Think playful prints, standout colours, and that timeless heart logo. It is the little sister of designer label Moschino and, if you’re looking to treat yourself, it provides the perfect level of high-end style and designer luxury.
Take for example the Mens Love Moschino Print T-Shirt. This short-sleeved tee is currently up for grabs in both white and navy-blue and, cut from super-soft premium cotton, it has that luxurious high-quality feel that only comes with designer clothing. A multi-coloured Love Moschino logo can also be found to the front of the design, thus adding to its appeal and giving it that distinctive designer touch. Splash out on this splash of colour and style with a pair of dark-wash skinny jeans to complete the look. Ladies can also lift their mood with a little Love Moschino and treat themselves to the Womens Love Moschino Logo Sweatshirt. This long-sleeved jumper comes in a deep luscious shade of red and, decorated with “love by” embroidery and a sequinned logo, it has love in abundance. Forget about your everyday troubles, be kind to yourself, and bag this designer style before its gone.
Tempt Yourself to Some Ted Baker
Admittedly this is one for the girls, but whilst we’re on the topic of retail therapy and indulgent treats, we have to mention our new range of designer clothing and accessories by Ted Baker – particularly the Ted Baker handbags that are currently available online and in-store. A designer handbag is an ultimate treat for a fashion-conscious lady, an epitome of the phrase “retail therapy”, and here at OD’s we absolutely adore the Womens Ted Baker Jicksy Bag. It is simple yet sophisticated and perfect for everyday use and, if you live a busy and stressful lifestyle, we’re going to go ahead and say that you deserve it.
Celebrate National Relaxation Day, Go Designer Clothes Shopping
It’s so easy to get caught up in the hectic whirlwind of life and lots of people actually like to be busy. However, you have to admit, you can’t beat a bit of good old-fashioned R&R from time to time. Retail therapy is a fantastic way to relax and unwind and – as the old adage goes – when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. So why not celebrate National Relaxation Day with us and check out our full online collections of designer clothing for men and women. Treat yourself to something special, even if it’s just this once, and give your mood a much-needed boost.

There’s something strangely special about men’s designer trainers. Perhaps once, many moons ago, they were simply worn for playing sports and running; but now, they are donned for just about every occasion other than weddings and funerals. It’s fair to say, they have become somewhat of a mainstay wardrobe staple, pulled out time and time again and thrown on with every type of outfit imaginable. They are casual, comfortable, and perfect for day-to-day use and – thanks to the recent sports-luxe trend seen on the runway – they are deemed more stylish and more popular than ever.
Encouraging further enthusiasm for the simple sneaker, a number of new men’s designer footwear brands have emerged over the last few years – including, for example, Android Homme and Tommy Mallet. These brands offer a range of luxury trainers that are laid-back yet incredibly high-end and they are taking the fashion industry by storm. Here we take a look at each of these brands in more detail, exploring exactly why their casual creps have become all the rage and highlighting some of the most popular Android Homme Shoes and Mallet Trainers currently available at OD’s Designer Clothing.
Luxurious Android Trainers for Men
Android Homme is an LA-based brand, completely obsessed with the evolution of their footwear range. Since their establishment in 2008, they have continuously explored the notion of what constitutes a luxury trainer and – as a result – they have continuously updated their collection with the most fashion-forward and intriguing sneaker designs. All Android Homme shoes are hand-made in Italy, with a strong focus on quality and luxury materials. You can expect premium fabrics, such as luscious suede and pure leather panels, and a level of expert craftsmanship that is rarely matched within the industry. Styles are influenced by streetwear fashion, the music industry, and graffiti art and the entire range is aimed at a modern man with a love for high-end luxurious kicks.
Here at OD’s, we currently have a fantastic range of Android trainers up for grabs and one of our favourite styles has to be the Mens Android Homme Belter 2.0 Trainers. Constructed from soft suede and netting, these android shoes completely epitomise the brand and its love for high-quality and innovative fabrics. Red detailing can be found throughout and, thanks to little touches such as the branded tongue and gold eyelets, they offer a stylish luxury twist on the classic runner. For the forward-thinking men out there, we also recommend the Mens Android Homme Propulsion Mid Trainers. These trendy mid-tops offer a unique combination of fabric and textures, with a smooth leather upper and reflective snake side strips, and they certainly inject a little luxury into everyday streetwear attire. Simply style with jeans and a jumper and you’re ready for work or play!
Versatile Tommy Mallet Footwear
Tommy Mallet may be one of the biggest stars from hit reality show TOWIE, but that isn’t his only claim to fame; he is the mastermind and creative director behind the popular designer footwear brand, Mallet. As a sneaker enthusiast and urban trendsetter, back in 2015, Tommy had an idea for a unique pair of trainers and reached out to his close friend in the high-end footwear industry. Together they designed and produced the first-ever “Tommy Mallet Shoes” and, having placed their creations online as a trial, the response was phenomenal. Within 24 months, Tommy Mallet footwear was being stocked in all the biggest high-end stores and online retailers across the UK and Europe.
Mens Mallet trainers are designed with one eye on the future of footwear. It is an ergonomic collection, combining slick silhouettes with urban aesthetics and contemporary colours and the focus is versatility. Tommy Mallet footwear is suitable for both dressing up and dressing down, taking the modern man effortlessly from an afternoon in the office to a night out on the town with friends. Take for example the Mens Mallet Archway Trainers, currently available here at OD’s. These sand-coloured sneakers are cut from high-quality suede, with a contrasting white sole and a neoprene inner tongue. Perfect for both day and night, just style them with a pair of skinny jeans and a short-sleeved tee and you will create an incredibly cool yet understated designer look. The Mens Mallet Archway 1.0 Trainers are another popular style for this season. Currently available in pastel pink, with gold trim detailing throughout, they are a fantastic example of luxury sneakers in action and they are the perfect option for forward-thinking men with a modern sense of style.

Over the last couple of years, the sports-luxe trend has boomed, and more and more luxury high-end trainers can be seen sauntering casually down the catwalk. They are super-comfy, practical, versatile, and incredibly on-trend. So, really, what’s not to like? A simple pair of luxury trainers can be worn for pretty much every occasion, just dress them up or down accordingly, and here at OD’s we’ve always been a massive fan. Our men’s designer footwear department is continuously updated with the biggest and latest brands on the market and we currently offer an extensive collection of both Android Homme Shoes and Tommy Mallet Trainers. Take a look today, pick out the first style that catches your eye and, we guarantee, you will never want (or need!) to take them off!

With the UK experiencing a little summertime sun for the first time in decades, we can hardly complain. The shades have been dug out of the wardrobe, there’s been day trips to the beach and fun weekend BBQs, and it’s been a pleasant change to the wet and miserable summers we’re used to. But you have to admit, it’s still hard to beat a nice summer holiday away – perhaps to a sunny Mediterranean island or beyond. Just a few days away from everything and everyone, to simply lie on a white-sand beach by day (with a good book and cocktail in hand) and party long into the night.
So why not book yourself a last-minute vaccay? It’s easier than ever to find a bargain last-minute deal online and, once you’ve secured your seat on the plane, you can simply head over to OD’s for those last-minute holiday clothing essentials. Of course, we always have an extensive range of designer clothing for men and women to choose from and here we have devised a last-minute edit of the hottest designer holiday clothes currently up for grabs. From women’s designer swimwear to summery holiday dresses and stylish evening attire for men, we have it all. Check out the highlights below and get ready to say hello to that idyllic holiday sunshine.
Designer Holiday Clothes for Men
Whether you’ve decided to book a spontaneous weekend getaway or you’re just a last-minute packer, the Mens BOSS Beach Set is a fantastic way to kill two exotic parrots with one stone. Available in light blue, this designer holiday clothing set includes both a pair of traditional swimming shorts and a matching beach towel. The brand name can be found embroidered subtly onto both, thus giving them an understated yet distinctively designer feel, and they come with a matching branded drawstring backpack – which could come in very handy when you’re heading down to the beach! Simply style the shorts with a white short-sleeved t-shirt and throw on a pair of Mens BOSS Green Solar Logo Slides to complete the perfect day-time holiday look.
When the sun goes down and it’s time to try out the local nightlife, you can’t go wrong with our range of designer holiday clothing by Antony Morato. This is a collection aimed at the young and vibrant and it is the perfect brand for sultry summer nights. Take for example the Mens Antony Morato Playing Card Print T-Shirt in White. Constructed from light and airy 100% cotton and boasting a regular fit, it is stylish yet comfortable, and it can be easily styled with either the Mens Anthony Morato Ozzy Skinny Jeans or the Navy Blue Mens Antony Morato Shorts. Alternatively, for those who will be heading out for a romantic evening meal, perhaps opt for something a little smarter – such as the Mens Antony Morato Short Sleeve Shirt in either black or white.
Designer Holiday Clothes for Women
For a fashion-conscious lady, buying designer holiday clothes and packing light is no easy feat; but if you’re jetting off last-minute, it’s more important than ever to just get the essentials. Perhaps you could start by investing in one or two sets of designer swimwear. Bamboa is by far the hottest designer swimwear brand of the season, with one particular style (the Bamboa Esme Bikini) even worn by Dani Dyer in this year’s series of Love Island. Currently available at OD’s, we recommend adding both the Womens Bamboa Shia Bikini Top and Bottoms and the Bamboa Venus Bikini to your suitcase. These styles can be easily mixed and matched and they can be paired with a variety of day-time cover-ups, such as the Womens Venus Sarong and the Womens Bamboa Shia Kaftan. Add in the Womens Bamboa Beach Towel and you’re ready for lazy days relaxing by the sea.
Holiday dresses are another last-minute essential, best styled with your sun-kissed tan and a pair of open-toe wedges. Take for example the Womens Ted Baker Erin Dress. Crafted from floaty chiffon fabric, it features an all-over summery floral print and delicate ruffles throughout and it is the perfect choice for humid nights spent sipping cocktails with the girls. Alternatively, you could choose a couple of pieces by Rebecca Rhoades. This collection has designer holiday clothing written all over it. Whether you plan on dancing til’ dawn or dining out with a loved one, designs such as the Maddison Maxi Dress and the Millie Mini Flamingo Dress are guaranteed to steal the show.

For lovers of the world’s most famous, exciting and daring brands, New York Fashion week is a spectacle that is not to be missed. It’s one of the biggest events in the sartorial calendar, and it’s coming up fast! So fast, in fact, that we feel like we’ve barely got time to prepare. So, with that in mind, we’ve put together a quick checklist for those who are planning to venture across the pond towards the end of summer to check out what the giants of the fashion design world have been preparing this year. Don’t jet off before you’ve ticked it all off!
Make an Itinerary
You’ll soon be able to access the New York Fashion Week schedule right here on the event’s website. Of course, it’s tempting to see and do everything on offer, but we recommend prioritising your preferred designers to avoid disappointment. It’s a really good idea to note down where you need to be and at what time, to make sure you know exactly where you’re going and have enough time to get around. A really useful tip is to create your own map on Google Maps and log the locations of each event you want to attend, as you’ll then also get an estimate of how long it will take to travel there.,
Get Lots of Sleep
There will be events, shows and activities all throughout the day and night that you’ll want to throw yourself into, so, both before and during New York Fashion Week, it’s really important that you catch up on some vital Zs. Assign yourself a morning for a lie in - or maybe a lazy afternoon - as part of your itinerary, otherwise you might find it difficult to concentrate on the astonishing pieces you’ve been waiting months to see. You want to return home feeling exhilarated and inspired, not drained and shaky, so treat yourself when you have the time!
Start Your Beauty Prep NOW
New York Fashion Week is the place to see and be seen. If you crave the lifestyle of a fashionista, it’s important to look the part as much as you feel it. The previous tip - to load up on much needed sleep - will work wonders towards this, but there are so many other things you can do besides. Book yourself in for the works; maybe start with a massage, a facial, manicure and pedicure, then head to the hairdressers to get neatened up. Stock up on new products, try out new and daring makeup looks and go to town on the daily skincare routine. Saunas can give your body a gorgeous all-over glow, particularly if you exfoliate and moisturize after each session. Make sure you eat well, and include fruit, vegetables and protein in your diet whenever you can!
Obtain Comfortable Shoes
You want to look your best and showcase some killer footwear. Of course you do! It’s New York Fashion Week! However, it’s so important to make sure that those shoes feel good and that you’re not limping around the city, failing to enjoy yourself as much as you would if you weren’t in pain. We’d strongly recommend taking a look as Love Moschino, Ted Baker and Royaums, or Android Homme, Giuseppe Zanotti and Mallet for footwear that breaks down boundaries style wise but still allows you to achieve the comfort you’d usually find with a good old pair of trainers.
Of course, we saved the most important until last. Plan your looks each day with meticulous detail and keep items of clothing and accessories together when you pack for no nonsense styling each day. Tie your wardrobe in with your itinerary: are you going for cocktails one evening, for example? Remember, you don’t have to stick with one look all day - just ensure you have time to get back to your hotel and change between events if you need to! If you need a little inspiration for your New York Fashion Week wardrobe, look no further than OD’s Designer Clothing. Give the catwalk models a run for their money by showcasing look upon look by your favourite designers. Take a look at the OD’s Designer Clothing summer sale for up to 50% off certain lines, or take advantage of our offers of free postage to cut down on your costs. Keep checking back to explore the new pieces and different, diverse designers we bring on board week on week, or sign up with us for updates and offers!
5 Things To Do To Prepare For New Yor...Read More
One accessory that is making a big splash this summer is the designer slide. Ideal for the hot weather we’ve been enjoying in the UK and still better for any holiday to a sun drenched shore, all the major fashion brands have jumped in and added their special twist to this comfy footwear classic. The sharp new designs that have appeared on shelves this year make it easy to take your look from the beach to the street to the bar, as the trend heavily features pieces that look great whether dressed up or down. Throw out your old threadbare sandals and take a look below to see OD’s Designer Clothing’s top slide picks that will send your style points skyrocketing. We’ll also give you some tips on how to incorporate your new slides into your look with outfit suggestions fresh from some of the top designers in the world.
Men’s BOSS Green Solar Slides
As usual, in the hunt for top notch men’s accessories, BOSS definitely makes the cut. Their super comfy and extra stylish men’s slides come in a brilliant variety of colours that are bound to complement any summer outfit, featuring the much sought after BOSS logo in bold, chunky lettering. We love this strong red as a flash of colour when paired with black or grey shorts and a slick black tee. Why not keep it within the brand family with BOSS’s Casual Tales t-shirt and a pair of their Homeleisure Track Shorts. If you’re wanting something lighter and fresher, dare to go bright with the same design in white with striking black lettering. You can team these with some distressed biker jeans from DSquared2 (roll them up for extra old school effect) and a crisp white tee from The North Face.
The North Face Base Camp Slides
This design assures longevity both in terms of style and sturdiness. Camo has been a key look in the world of fashion year after year, whether as a focal point or a complementary pattern for accessories. The North Face is a well known brand that specialises in outdoor wear, so naturally their Camp Slides are strong and hard wearing as well as comfortable. They’re also water resistant, so splashing about in the sea or pool won’t cause any damage. Beige or khaki chino pants or shorts will really set off their earthy colours, while a rich claret or simple pure white t-shirt completes the look perfectly.
Dsquared2 Canadian Flag Slides
There’s a whole lot of love for Canada right across the globe, and Dan and Dean Caten, the twin brother designers behind DSquared2, are definitely feeling it. The pair are rightfully very proud of their heritage, so the Canadian flag features strongly within a number of their designs and makes for a bold and colourful motif on these super cool slides, as well as a great conversation starter. A white t-shirt and black shorts are all you need to complete this chilled out look.
If you’re looking for something that’s in equal parts comfy, cool and smart looking, the designers at Mallet have produced these super slick, minimalist slides in khaki and navy, featuring the brand’s stylish logo, a cosy, foot hugging shape and an eye catching metallic flash below each heel. Whether you’re browsing the shops, stretching out on the beach or enjoying a drink in a boutique bar, Mallet’s offering will surpass your style requirements. The great thing about these shades is that they go with almost anything, but we’d choose grey jeans and a fun, bright tee to really stand out in a crowd.
Enjoy the warm weather in style, whether you’re heading overseas or enjoying a weekend barbecue or garden party at home with family. Be the envy of your group of friends and team your new slides with your favourite designer outfit supplied by OD’s Designer Clothing. Take a look and see what else we have to offer; you can check out our summer sale for up to 50% off certain lines, or take advantage of our offers of free postage. There are always new pieces arriving and different designers to explore, so keep checking back to see just what we have to offer you week on week.

Mens Stylish Slides - Best Pool Footw...Read More
Ibiza is considered one of the party capitals of the world, where wild ones and fashionistas spend their days basking in the sun, soaking in the sea or swimming pool and shopping at the markets and designer stores around the island. Then, when evening descends and the blazing sun sinks beyond the sea, they pour en masse through Spanish streets lined with palm trees, sharp whitewashed buildings and glowing neon lights to worship at the altars of the gods of music - world famous superclubs and celebrated venues such as Amnesia, Pacha and DC10, where DJ idols lead the revels way into the early hours of the morning.
If you’re planning a trip to Ibiza this year, lucky you! It’s an experience like no other, and one you’ll remember - perhaps a little hazily - for the rest of your life.
But what on earth are you going to wear?
If you’re heading to grab some rays, there’s no better spot than beautiful nearby Formentera. Stretch out on the white sand and get your tan on!
Get in the party spirit straight away with the bright, bold and feminine “Venus” beachwear set from Bambòa. Choose from a bikini, cutout tie-waist swimsuit, sarong, kaftan or headband to create your perfect combination. For those who prefer it sleek and sultry, Bambòa also have a gorgeous full length sheer “Shia” kaftan that you can match with your favourite black swimsuit. We recommend mixing your designers here and opting for this stunning moulded triangle bikini top and these cheeky side string bikini bottoms with flashes of gold detailing, both from Calvin Klein.
Bold prints are the tideside ideal for any sartorially discerning man. We love these bright but classy turtle stencil “Okoa” swim trunks from Vilbrequin if you like to make a splash style wise. If, on the other hand, you prefer your swimwear a little more understated, look no further than these classy BOSS Orca swimshorts, complete with the famous logo embossed up one leg.
There’s always time to get some shopping in, however jam-packed your day might be! Head to La Marina or one of the wonderful Hippie Markets to find your fix of retail therapy.
The Bardot neckline is not going anywhere, and in sunny Ibiza, it doubles as a great fashion statement and a surefire way to get a strapless tan! Pair Sundress’s Jade croptop - a stellar example of this style complete with a boho twist - with daring white Rebecca Rhoades angel wide leg trousers to hit two hot trends in one. Of course, no retail therapy is complete without a huge tote or shopper, and the Vivienne Westwood Balmoral Shopper will complement this look perfectly. Finish it off with these super cute Vivienne Westwood vs Melissa Ultragirl 18 Shoes for some much needed glitter and a little touch of fun!
Match with the cool blue of the sky and ocean in this chilled Dsquared2 Circle Print T Shirt, and give your legs an airing in a pair of ever-fashionable Michael Kors Chino Shorts to help you deal with the heat of the midday sun. There are so many places to explore, so be kind to your feet while completing your super suave daytime look with a soft and breathable pair of Mallet Archway Trainers.
This is what it’s all about. Let your hair down and express yourself to the beats of some of the biggest names in music. They don’t call Ibiza the techno capital of the world for nothing! There are so many looks to choose from, so find your signature style and roll with it.
If you like it dark and demure, this wonderfully flattering dress from Lavish Alice might just be perfect for you. It’s unique, but still manages to fall perfectly into the newly revived one-shoulder trend! It’ll look great with a super cute contrasting baby pink Love Moschino clutch. However, if you want to look fun, flirty and carefree, we absolutely love the Millie Mini Flamingo Dress from Rebecca Rhoades paired with another Love Moschino number - their lovely hot pink Stud Love Bag.
Both these looks are complemented perfectly by Vivienne Westwood’s vs Melissa Lady Dragon High Heels - though you may want to bring your flats too if you plan on dancing til dawn!
You can’t go wrong with a high quality graphic tee, and Dsquared2’s Cactus shirt fits the bill perfectly. Pairing it with a pair of dark Jacob Cohen PW6636 Chino Shorts offers up a look that is sharp but also screams “chill”, and, with BOSS Green Zephir Runn Track Trainers completing the ensemble, you’ll be ready to hit the clubs looking super fly.
What To Wear in Ibiza in 2018Read More
Here at OD’s Designer Clothing, we are cracking out the champagne this week, as we celebrate being nominated for not one, but two, awards at the Drapers Independents Awards 2018. Our team have worked incredibly hard over the last 12 months; we have invested a lot of time and effort into our brand and the launch of our brand-new website and, overall, it has been a fantastic year for us. The fact that we have been shortlisted for these two awards is, quite simply, the cherry on the cake.
The Drapers Independents Awards is a highly-respected annual event on the fashion retail calendar, aimed at recognising the most influential and top-performing independent designer clothing retailers. It is a chance to reward businesses that are changing the landscape of the fashion industry; those who know how to keep their customers happy and continue to offer a strong edit of brands. Customers are at the heart of everything we do at OD’s; therefore, to be nominated for these awards is not just a testament to our success but it is also a great honour. We simply couldn’t be happier!
The Multichannel Independent Retailer of the Year
First up, we have been nominated for the Multichannel Independent Retailer of the Year Award, an award aimed specifically at recognising excellence within the online side of an independent designer clothing retailer. The judges are looking for a business that has both a well-designed website – which is easy to use and frequently updated with relevant and interesting content – and a strong social media presence. Exceptional online customer service is a key aspect of the award and judges want to see evidence of a strong range of online brands and an effective multichannel retail operation.
With these criteria in mind, it is easy to see why OD’s has been shortlisted for this award. The launch of our new website has been a major success; not only does it look great, but it has also significantly improved usability for our customers and web traffic have increased as a result. Our blog is continuously updated with the latest fashion news and designer clothing trends and we like to stay active on both Facebook and Twitter. Of course, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and this applies to both customers who visit our high-street store and those who shop online. Keeping our customers happy is of paramount importance and we are incredibly proud to be nominated for this award.
The Kidswear Independent Retailer of the Year
Secondly, we have been nominated for the Kidswear Independent Retailer of Year Award. This is a new award for 2018, aimed at celebrating an independent designer clothing retailer, who serves the kidswear market with an edit of popular brands. The judges are looking for both a successful in-store and online environment that complements these brands and, once again, exceptional customer service is key. They are also looking for a business with a strong plan and strategy to ensure the business stays at the very top of its game, leading the way in the world of children’s fashion.
OD’s certainly ticks all the right boxes for this award. Junior clothing brands were first introduced to our main store in 2010 and they have proved to be a great success; so much so that, in 2016, we decided to expand the collection and open a stand-alone designer kidswear store. This store has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years and, despite fierce competition, it is now one of the largest and most successful in the UK. Our new website has really helped to complement the junior brands on offer and we are incredibly proud of what we have achieved.
Thank You for Your Support
Customer service is at the forefront of everything we do here at OD’s and, since we first opened our doors in 1992, we have been committed to providing the best possible designer retail experience for our valued customers. We always strive to improve our services and go that extra mile and, as a result, our customers have stayed loyal to us. We’d, therefore, like to thank you for your continued support and join us in saying cheers, here’s to being nominated for these two fantastic awards!

Just in case you don’t have an alert on your calendar, here’s a heads up: Father’s Day 2018 is fast approaching. This year it falls on Sunday 17th June and it’s one of those days that you really don’t want to forget. A chance to show your dad how much he means to you and how much you appreciate everything he has done and still does – from regular taxi services and DIY duties to his sage advice and private tutoring sessions. Your dad is special, and he deserves to be celebrated. But what exactly do you buy for the most important man in your life, when he has and knows it all?
Well, don’t worry, as we’ve got you covered. Forget that cheap bottle of plonk or a box of chocolate liquors. Here at OD’s, we have an extensive range of “gifts for him” that are guaranteed to be a winner, putting a big fat smile on his loveable face. There’s still plenty of time, so put a little thought into it and choose something he wouldn’t necessarily buy for himself. And to make things even easier, we have carefully curated an edit of our favourite Father’s Day gift ideas.
Slippers for a Dad Who Likes to Relax
After a long day at work, your dad likes nothing more than putting his feet up and relaxing in front of the TV. He absolutely loves his creature comforts, so why not ramp up the cosiness this Father’s Day and treat him to a pair of men’s slippers by UGG. This is a brand renowned for its luxurious warmth, heavenly comfort, and urban contemporary style. In our opinion, they are quite simply the best slippers that money can buy, and they are a lovely Father’s Day gift idea for your hard-working pa.
Stick to a traditional leather moccasin with the UGG Ascot Slippers, or go for something a little more casual, such as the Mens UGG Scuff Slippers. These dapper mules are crafted from luxurious suede, with a plush wool interior, and they are guaranteed to be slipped on night after night after night.
Essentials for a No-Fuss Kind of Dad
Socks and underwear are one of those cliché presents, the type of thing that people buy year after year for their dad, usually on a last-minute dash around the local supermarket. We agree it’s not the most inspiring Father’s Day gift idea… but sometimes it’s just what your old man wants (and needs!). So why not swap out the supermarket for OD’s and treat him to a pair of luxury designer smalls.
HUGO BOSS currently has a fantastic range of classic underwear for men, including everything from boxers and briefs to shoe liners and socks. We recommend pairing either the Mens BOSS Rib Logo Pack Socks or the Mens Boss Stripe Socks with the Mens BOSS Boxer Brief Identity Boxers. They offer enhanced everyday luxury, with a distinctive designer touch, and they even come presented in a branded gift box. Who said underwear isn’t a thoughtful gift?
Watches for a Dad Who Stays Up-to-Date
A stylish timepiece is an amazing Father’s Day gift idea; something that can be cherished for years, perhaps worn every day, for both work and play, or saved for those special family occasions. If it brings a smile to his face, attracts three compliments a day, and ensures your pa is never late, you’re onto a winner. And thanks to the extensive collection of men’s designer watches, currently available at OD’s, you’re bound to find one that suits his personal taste.
Why not splash out and treat your dad to this Emporio Armani Gents Watch? With its navy-blue croc-embossed leather strap and contrasting red hands, it has a very smart business-like feel and it is the perfect designer watch for a trendy da. For something a little sportier, we also recommend the Tommy Hilfiger Gents Decker Watch. Its white dial is complemented by a light blue silicone strap and it features both three-hand movement and a modern multi-functional display. This watch is stylish but practical and it will be a constant reminder of your love and respect.
Caps for a Cool Dude Dad
Your dad was always (or still is) the coolest dad on the playground. He’s the type of guy that everyone wants to be friends with. He’s kind, funny, stylish and you want him to know that you look up to him. So why not treat your hipster daddy to a new designer accessory, such as a cap or hat?
Take for example the Mens Moose Knuckles Route 80 Baseball Cap. Crafted from pure cotton denim, with the Moose Knuckles emblematic logo pinned to the front of the design, it offers a perfect balance of everyday comfort and high-end iconic style. The Mens Thomas Royall Suede Baseball Cap is another hip Father’s Day gift idea, guaranteed to be loved by dapper daddies and – thanks to its suede light grey hue – it is the perfect accessory for the summer months.
T-Shirts for a Smart-Casj Sort of Dad
Sometimes, it’s better to just keep things simple. Forget about thinking “outside the box” and just consider what it is that your dad would actually appreciate as a gift. If that happens to be a couple of designer t-shirts, then so be it. There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the basics, especially when you shop at OD’s. In fact, we think a designer short-sleeved tee is a fantastic Father’s Day gift idea.
Available online and in-store, you will find a superb range of Dsquared2 t-shirts, featuring everything from the brand’s signature designs to this season’s latest styles. Stick to a classic with the Mens Dsquared2 Logo T-Shirt, or go for something a little more distinctive, such as the Mens Dsquared2 Badge T-Shirt. Either way, we guarantee, this is a simple gift that will show how much you care.
Whether you’re shopping for your dad, grandad, or just a fatherly figure, coming up with a thoughtful Father’s Day gift idea doesn’t have to be difficult. Just head over to our extensive “gifts for him” department today, follow our gift guide and find a present that is just

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through 2018 already? It doesn’t seem two minutes since new year; and yet, summer has arrived, the sun is shining, and festival season is here! The tickets have arrived, you’ve bought your one-woman pop-up tent, and the full line-up has finally been revealed. You can’t wait to be dancing til’ dawn in the middle of a muddy field, with glitter stripes on your face and a cold drink in hand. And all that’s left to do, is decide what you’re going to wear…
When it comes to fashion, festivals are definitely not the place to blend in! In fact, they are probably the only time you can wear whatever the hell you want and actually get away with it. Unleash your inner fashionista, be free-spirited and carefree, and use this perfect opportunity to make a style statement. The only rule is: anything goes. But if you don’t want to throw caution to the wind, why not take a look at our festival shop and check out our top 5 festival fashion trends for 2018.
No. 1: Super-Comfy and Sassy Sportswear
Denim shorts have been a festival staple for as long as we can remember and, thankfully, it’s time for a change. Ditch those distressed light-wash hot pants and replace them with a pair of sporty designer shorts. They are super comfortable, cool enough for warm sunny days, and they won’t start to dig in after all those dirty burgers. Sounds like perfect festival fashion to us!
Here at OD’s, we particularly love the Womens Tommy Jeans Shorts – available in White and Navy Blue. Style them with a short-sleeved tee or vest top, such as the Womens Tommy Jeans Vest, throw on a pair of trainers, and layer up with the Womens Hunter Original Vinyl Mac if it starts to rain.
No. 2: Festival Sliders
We’ve all seen the photos; brave souls at Glasto, knee-deep in mud and battling against the elements in a plastic poncho. Of course, if it’s pouring down with rain, wellies are an absolute festival essential. But if the sun does make an appearance, make sure to have a pair of sliders at the ready!
These casual 90s style sandals have made a huge comeback for SS18 and we reckon they will become one of the hottest festival fashion trends of the year. Even brands such as Hunter, renowned for their chunky black wellington boots and synonymous with the soggy festival terrain, have turned their attention to summer slides. Prepare for all eventualities and rock this trend with either the Womens Original Adjustable Logo Slides or the Womens Original Floral Stripe Adjustable Slides.
No. 3: Queen of Gold
This 2018 festival fashion trend is very simple; just say yes to everything golden and sun-kissed. Metallics have been a key player in the fashion industry for a while now and, when it comes to partying in a field, the shinier the better. Be bold, be gold, and stand out from the festival crowd!
Start with a simple black bodycon dress and embrace this trend with the Womens Hoody Bomber Jacket by True Religion. It shimmers and shines in a futuristic sort of way and it is guaranteed to catch people’s eye on the campsite. Alternatively, you could just add a few gold accessories to your outfit. Here at OD’s, we absolutely love the Womens Valentino Divina Crossbody Bag and – thanks to its golden hue – it is a subtle and understated way to create this stand-out festival look.
No. 4: Crack out the Crochet
Yes, we’re aware; crochet is a festival classic – part of the festival fashion line-up for many years now. But for 2018, the crochet trend is more prominent than ever. It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting a small gig in the local park or heading to a disco in the heart of the desert; it’s time to stock up on this simple knitted fabric. And, here at OD’s, we have just the thing…
Jovonna is one of the latest brands to hit our store, offering a range of hip summery designs and trendy crochet-inspired styles. Take for example the Womens Caron Lace Top and the Kuiper ¾ Blouse. Either of these crocheted beauties can be thrown on with flared dark-wash jeans and, to create a chic boho look, we recommend adding a pair of colourful OTT tassel earrings.
No. 5: Keep it Cropped
Crop tops are cute, cool, and comfy, ergo perfect festival fashion material. Whether you opt for a simple colour-block design or bling it up with sequins and sparkles, it’s up to you. It’s not about baring your midriff and you definitely don’t need to have killer abs to pull it off. Just style your crop top with something high-waisted and, we guarantee, you can’t go wrong.
Here at OD’s we absolutely adore the Womens Indiana Crop Top by Sundress. It has a very bohemian gypsy vibe and it works perfectly with the matching Sundress Indiana Skirt. Style this outfit with gold slides and a sporty belt bag, and we reckon you’ve pretty much nailed this festival fashion trend.
It’s official, festival season is here and it’s time to let your fashion imagination run free. Choose clothes you wouldn’t usually wear and think of the muddy field as your catwalk. Here we have listed the top 5 biggest festival fashion trends of the year; however, many more styles can be found online as part of our festival shop. Check it out today, use this blog as a guide, and get ready for festival festivities.
