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.

If you’re the type of person who likes to buy matching Christmas jumpers for all the family, you’ll be thrilled to learn that a “twinning” beachwear trend is taking the country by storm for SS18. A number of high-end fashion brands have jumped on board with this latest craze, offering a range of matching designer swimwear for you and your little beach bums and – here at OD’s Designer Clothing – we think matching swimwear sets are an adorable addition to your summer wardrobe.
It doesn’t matter if you have a boy or girl, there’s something incredibly cute (and now stylish!) about dressing like each other – especially when you’re jetting off on a sunny summer holiday. Boys want to be as a cool as their dad and little girl’s love dressing up like their mummy. Shopping together is a great way to have some quality family time and you could even let your trendy mini-me choose a style for both of you. Designer swimwear has officially become a family affair. Browse through our full online swimwear collections and check out our edit of the cutest styles currently on the market:
Twinning is Winning with Thomas Royall
Thomas Royall is a brand inspired by the summer and dedicated to making statement designer swimwear. Although it started out as a small business flogging men’s swim shorts, it now offers a plethora of matching collections for the family – including women’s bikinis, girl’s cossies, and boy’s swimming trunks – and it is a brilliant place to start if you’d like to create a co-ordinated poolside look.
Here at OD’s, we particularly love the Thomas Royall Costa Rico Collection. Both the Men’s Thomas Royall Costa Rico Luca Shorts and the Boys Costa Rico Swim Shorts are crafted from high-performance fast-drying fabric – making them perfect for splashing about with daddy in the hotel pool. They showcase one of the brand’s most iconic digital prints and, due to their colourful and busy design, they are guaranteed to be a popular choice for stylish little boys.
For something a little more understated, we recommend the Thomas Royall Jet Black Swim Shorts. Currently available for both father and son, these swim shorts come in a traditional black colourway and they are finished with the brand’s signature azure blue waistband and back-pocket flap. They create a distinctive designer swimwear look and they are a subtle way to rock the twinning trend.
Iconic Designer Swimwear by Tommy Hilfiger
Whether you’re jetting off to America or just heading for a sandy beach in Spain, why not add a preppy Americana vibe to your family’s holiday wardrobe? Globally renowned brand, Tommy Hilfiger, has introduced a range of matching designer swimwear for SS18 – including styles for mom, pops, and the kiddos – and we think it’s a super cool way to create the “mini-me” beach trend.
Most designs in this collection come in an iconic red, white, and blue colourway, therefore reflecting the American heritage of the brand and creating an instantly-recognisable designer look. Take for example the Womens Tommy Jeans Flag Swim Costume and the Womens Tommy Jeans Logo Bikini. They both feature a bold colour-block design, with distinctive logo branding, and they are sure to catch people’s eye (in a good way!) as you stroll down the white sand beach.
Treat yourself to one of these signature swimsuits by Tommy Hilfiger and then make it a family affair. Style your mini fashionista in the Girls Tommy Hilfiger Swimsuit and kit out your little boy with the matching Boys Tommy Hilfiger Swim Shorts
Love the Matching Moschino Look
Perfect for families who like to stand out from the crowd, we absolutely love the SS18 Moschino Designer Swimwear Collection. This is a brand renowned for its irreverent tones and eccentric designs and their range of bikinis, swimming cossies, and shorts is certainly no exception. Think bold colours, metallic detailing, and clashing logo motifs – such as the brand’s iconic teddy bear.
Matching styles are currently available for all the family, including this Womens Moschino Metallic Swim Costume. With its black and gold printed design and modern scoop-back silhouette, it is a firm favourite with stylish yummy-mummies. Hubby can then follow suit with the Mens Moschino Swim Shorts and, if you really want to max out the designer “twinning” trend, similar styles are available for both little boys and little girls. Wear this matching designer swimwear whilst lounging by the pool and – we guarantee – you will be the coolest family on the holiday resort.
It’s official, when it comes to beachwear and poolside style, twinning is winning. SS18 has seen the introduction of numerous designer swimwear collections, perfect for summer family holidays on a sunny tropical beach. Matching with your mini-me has never been so easy! So why not browse through our full online collection of swimwear for men, women, and children today and make sure to hit the biggest holiday fashion trend of the season!
Designer Swimwear: It’s a Family AffairRead More
Anticipation and excitement have been building for weeks, with speculation and rumours and little snippets of information about the big day and how it will unfold. However, the wait is finally over, and the fairy-tale wedding is due to take place this Saturday. Prince Harry will marry American actress, Meghan Markle, at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, and the blushing bride is set to wear a hand-stitched gown by London-based Australian fashion designers, Ralph & Rosso.
In a way, the royal nuptials mark the start of the 2018 wedding season and with a flurry of invitations falling through your letterbox, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear. When shopping for wedding outfits, the most important thing to remember is that you must not distract from the bride. Of course, you want to look stylish and it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. But try not to draw attention and remember that all-important number one rule; do not, under any circumstances, wear white!
Here at OD’s, we recommend using the wedding invitation as a guide. If the invitation is worded formally, it’s probably a good idea to go for something formal. If it’s fun and light-hearted, perhaps something casual would be better. If it has a floral theme, choose a floral pattern. If it features bright colours, opt for a lively and colourful outfit. You get the gist. Think about the venue and the time of year and check out our highlights of the season below. Our website features a plethora of wedding appropriate attire, and here we have picked out just a few of our favourite summer wedding outfits for men, women, and children:
Wedding Outfits for the Best “Dressed” Man
Whether you’re a friend of the groom or a reluctant plus one, choosing a wedding outfit can be a bit of a minefield for a man. It’s important that you get the right balance. You want to look smart and stylish, but you also want to wear something that is comfy enough for a full-day celebration. Super slim suits are a popular choice for this season; however, if you’ve been invited to a spring or summer wedding, the sun is beaming (and the buffet is calling), this might not be the best option…
Why not go for something a little more smart-casual? A lightweight blazer and chinos can look just as swanky as a suit, especially if worn with a crisp white shirt and a pair of luxurious leather Oxfords. Here at OD’s we currently have a range of designer shirts that will do the job. Take for example the Mens BOSS Lamberto Long Sleeve Shirt or the Jill Short Sleeve Shirt. Pair either of these with the Mens BOSS Carmons Shoes and create a wedding outfit that ticks all the right boxes.
Winsome Wedding Outfits for Women
Hope & Ivy are a contemporary British fashion brand with a feminine and bohemian edge. Their collection is epitomised by embroidery and hand-drawn prints and it includes a range of beautifully crafted dresses – which, we think, are perfect for “dancing til’ dawn” at a spring or summer wedding.
Take for example the Women’s Hope & Ivy Oriental Embroidery Midi Dress. Available in a bright coral colourway, it is fresh yet sophisticated and ideal for a sunny summer ceremony. The Oriental Embroidery Midi Dress by Hope & Ivy is another great option. Despite its classic vintage-inspired design, it has a very modern silhouette – with an open back, ruffle detailing and tonal embroidery to the front. This is a dress that is designed to impress. Just style it with a pair of metallic high-heels and create an effortless yet stunning wedding outfit for the summer.
Alternatively, if floaty florals aren’t your thing and you have a slightly edgier sense of style, we recommend the Women’s Orlla Dress by Ted Baker. This mid-length pencil dress features a bold and unusual print, with pretty pearl embellishments around the neckline. It is ultra-flattering and incredibly glam and it has summer wedding outfit stamped all over it.
Cute and Comfy Wedding Outfits for Kids
Weddings can be a tricky one for kids. It’s a special occasion and you want them to look the part, but it’s also important that they are cool and comfortable. Layers are a great option; lightweight blazers and cardigans that can be put on and taken off when necessary. She may be small, but the same rule applies; white is a no-go area, even for your little girl. And of course, your little boy’s trousers need to be able to withstand the odd knee slide across the dancefloor.
Mayoral is a great place to start for children’s wedding outfits. Styles are available for both boys and girls aged 0-9 years old, and the brand is renowned for clothing that is fashionable, functional, and high quality. Here at OD’s, we absolutely love the Newborn Boys 3 Piece Set. It comprises a traditional-style blazer, a waistcoat, and a short-sleeved shirt and it is finished with an adorable bow tie! For your little princess, combine the Girls Mayoral Bow Back Dress with a fine-knit white cardigan and sandals. And for the style-conscious teens in your life, check out our full online junior department. We guarantee you will find something to create the perfect children’s wedding outfit.
Harry and Meghan are scheduled to tie the knot this weekend and, it’s fair to say, the 2018 wedding season is officially underway. If you’ve been invited to a spring or summer wedding this year, it’s time to start thinking about what you (and the family) are going to wear. Take a look at our favourite wedding outfits for men, women, and children and browse through our full online collections for more inspiration. Dressing like a royal may be easier than you think…
Summer Wedding Outfits for Men, Women...Read More
Sliders originate in the 1970s. The first ever pair was introduced by Adidas as an après-sport sandal for the German national football team and they soon become known as “shower shoes” – shoes that, technically, should only be worn in-private whilst taking a shower. Even when sliders hit the mainstream fashion industry in the 90s, they were vilified for having no aesthetic appeal and – as a result - were mainly just worn at home or whilst holidaying abroad.
It’s only in the last couple of years that sporty sandals have boomed in popularity, becoming one of the coolest and edgiest trends of the summer. Sliders have been given a luxury designer make-over and they are no longer confined to the poolside. In fact, they have established themselves as a shoe that people actually want to be seen in – whether that be on holiday or on the cool city streets.
Many designer fashion labels have now introduced a line of no-fuss sporty sliders to their spring-summer 2018 (SS18) collection, offering a range of footwear that is both incredibly stylish and ridiculously comfortable. Sliders are perfect for creating the latest SS18 sports luxe trend. And if you’re feeling really brave, you could even style them with a pair of statement socks, and rock the “so-wrong-it’s-right” ugly footwear craze of late. But, like we said, only if you’re brave…
Let your old faithful sliders resurface from the deepest darkest depths of your wardrobe or treat yourself to a stylish new pair. Here at OD’s, we currently have an extensive collection of sliders for men, women and children - available both online and instore. So why not browse our website and check out some of our favourite designs of the season:
Sleek Sliders for Men
Dsquared2 have completely embraced the men’s slider trend. As part of their SS18 collection, timeless wardrobe staples were reworked to include loud colours, bold graphics, and contemporary designer branding – including, most notably, a range of sporty sliders for men.
Take for example the Mens Dsquared2 Logo Slides. Available in black, with chunky white lettering across the front of the design, these sliders create a very eye-catching and distinctive designer look. Just pair them with shorts and a tee and hit up the hotel pool. The Mens Dsquared2 Canadian Flag Slides are another great option. A bright Canadian flag sits proudly on the front strap - paying homage to the brand’s heritage - and they benefit from a contoured and textured rubber sole. Stylish but comfy, they are the perfect slip-on sliders for the spring and summer months!
Swanky Sliders for Women
“Slydes” is a designer fashion brand dedicated solely to the slider. Taking their inspiration from the latest fashion and streetwear trends, they produce a range of statement sandals, perfect for all manner of activities - from athletic pursuits and gym sessions, to chilling in the garden and hitting up the cocktail bar with friends.
SS18 saw the introduction of the Women’s Galactic Slides – a design which has taken this sporty sandal to a whole new level. Crafted from shimmery silver fabric, with luxe fluffy pompoms to the front, these women’s slides create a very extravagant look that is completely unsuitable for the sandy beach. They are a statement piece of footwear and they should be worn with pride in the city!
For something a little more pared-back (but still just as stylish!), we recommend the Women’s Slydes Wings Slides. Despite their sporty silhouette, these sandals have a very feminine and girly feel. They come in a shiny rose-gold colourway, with metallic wings to the upper strap, and they are designed with both contemporary street-wear style and day-to-day comfort in mind. Dress them up or down and nail the glamourous SS18 sliders trend.
Mini-Me Sliders for Juniors
Incredibly cool and stupidly comfortable; trust us, sliders will get your little one’s seal of approval. Various designer brands have introduced this sporty sandal to their kid’s SS18 collection, with designs available for both style-conscious boys and fashion-obsessed little girls, and they have become an absolute summertime wardrobe essential for your mini-me.
We particularly love the Girls Logo Slides by Moschino. Coming in a pretty pastel-pink colourway, the front strap is decorated with chunky silver “Moschino” branding and they boast a no-fuss slip-on design for that all-important comfort. Boys can also get a piece of the sliders action, with the Boys Branded Slides by Kenzo. Available in white, with bold branding and a comfy gripper sole, they tick all the right boxes and we guarantee he will never want to take them off.
Whether you choose to wear them alone or style them with a strategic sock, sliders are making a comeback and – here at OD’s Designer Clothing – we couldn’t be more delighted. Lightweight, easy-to-wear and now incredibly stylish, what more could you ask for in a pair of summer sandals?

With oodles of street-cred and a cool edge to their designs, creative directors, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, have well and truly brought Kenzo Kids clothing into the 21st century. Their SS18 collection is fresh and fun, featuring a mix of statement styles and everyday casual pieces for both boys and girls. Clothes are made to be more comfortable and more unique than ever before. Expect a playful combo of bold eye-catching graphics and striking vibrant colours, and for that distinctive designer touch, the iconic Kenzo Kids tiger motif can be found emblazoned onto many of the designs.
SS18 has also seen the introduction of three new statement prints, including Tiger Friends, Tiger Stripes, and Paper Planes. These prints continue with the original vision of the Kenzo brand, designed with both ethnic cultural influences and modern-day fashion in mind, and they are all available here at OD’s Designer Clothing! Whether you’re looking for a trendy t-shirt for your little man or an edgy dress for your mini fashionista, we have it all. So why not browse through the full Kenzo Kids Collection today and check out our top picks for each of the new SS18 prints.
The Kenzo Kids “Tiger Friends” print is bright, busy and iconic. Garments are either repeatedly patterned with the brand’s signature tiger motif or they feature a striking silkscreen print of two friendly tigers. Take for example the Girls Kenzo Tiger Friends T-Shirt. Available in a bright fuchsia-pink, it is detailed with a bold Kenzo Paris logo and a contrasting twin “Tiger Friends” print can be found to the front of the design. Combine this simple short-sleeved tee with the Girls Tiger Friends Leggings and create an incredibly on-trend, playful look for your little miss.
Boys can also get a piece of the “Tiger Friends” action with the Boys Kenzo Tiger Friends T-Shirt. Two large tigers are printed boldly on to the front of the design, along with striking rectangular graphics and the iconic Kenzo Paris logo. Pair it with light-wash jeans or denim shorts and let him stand out the from the crowd this summer!
Leopard print clothing might be dubbed tacky and old-fashioned; but with the introduction of Kenzo Kids “Tiger Stripes”, tiger print clothing has become the exact opposite. It is cool, edgy, and all the rage amongst mini trendsetters. The Girls Kenzo Tiger Stripes Leggings are an incredibly popular choice for girls and - combined with either the Girls Tiger T-Shirt or the Girls Tiger Sweatshirt - they are perfect for both casual weekend occasions and summer day trips.
Alternatively, create a unique statement look for your little miss and treat her to the Girls Kenzo Tiger Stripes Waistcoat. This versatile bomber-jacket has a reversible design; one side comes in a plain navy colourway, whilst the other is patterned all-over with the “Tiger Stripes” pattern. In vivid shades of pink, white and blue, this pattern really catches the eye and it gives the jacket an incredibly distinctive designer touch.
Kenzo takes us on a journey around the world this season, with the introduction of their unusual “Paper Planes” print. Garments come in a crisp white, navy-blue, or yellow colourway, with a bright serigraph of paper planes and iconic landmarks – such as the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty – printed on to the front and back of each design.
Take for example the Boys Kenzo Paper Planes T-Shirt. Hand-drawn yellow paper planes fly across this simple white tee, visiting both the US and Paris along the way, and a bold Kenzo Kids logo can be found stamped around the circumference. Pair it with the Boys Logo Jersey Shorts and trainers and create a highly on-trend and comfortable look for your little man.
Under the direction of Leon and Lim, Kenzo Kids has become renowned for its combination of striking prints, eye-catching colours, and cultural influences – and the SS18 collection certainly lives up to these expectations. All three of the latest prints are currently up for grabs here at OD’s Designer Clothing, including clothes for boys and girls aged 4-16 years old. It is incredibly easy to create a trendy but youthful look for your little one. So why not head over to our full online Kenzo Kids Collection today and see which quirky colourful print catches your eye…

It’s a boy! After weeks of anticipation and royal baby mania, the wait is finally over, and the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to the fifth-in-line to the throne – a beautiful baby boy, fittingly coming into the world on patriotic St George’s Day. He was born at 11.01am on the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, weighing in at 8lb 7oz and mother and baby are both said to be doing well. Sticking to tradition, an easel is likely to be placed outside Buckingham Palace to confirm the birth, they will make their first public appearance later today – with Kate, no doubt, looking as refined and glamorous as ever – and that all-important name will soon be revealed…
With the arrival of the new prince, we have rustled up a selection of luxurious designer gifts by Mayoral that will make any newborn baby feel like a royal. Perhaps you’re expecting your own little prince or princess in the near future or you’d just like to treat a new mum, a niece, a nephew, goddaughter or godson to a lovely newborn baby gift. Mayoral offer an extensive selection of clothing and accessories for babies aged 0-12 months and they are available here at OD’s Designer Clothing. Browse through the full online collection and check out some of our top picks below:
Newborn Gifts for a Majestic Little Princess
If you’re looking for a small but thoughtful gift for a newborn baby girl, the Set of 2 Butterfly Bibs by Mayoral is a fantastic option. Crafted from soft white fabric, the bibs are printed with pastel pink and green butterflies and they come presented in a lovely gift box. In those messy first few months of bottle feeds and winding, we guarantee, they will be used time and time again. Pair them with the matching Mayoral Butterfly Romper and create a newborn gift that is fit for a princess.
Alternatively, treat the little lady in your life to her first stylish outfit with the Girls Mayoral Dress & Leggings Set. The set features a soft stretchy pair of floral leggings, a white cotton t-shirt with snap button fastenings, and a denim dungaree-style dress. This dress is delicately embroidered with bright multicoloured flowers and it is a subtle newborn nod to the 2018 embroidery trend. Sizes start at 2-4 months and it is a wonderful newborn gift for an aspiring fashionista. It can be worn with or without the leggings and works well with the Baby Girls Mayoral Sandals in Pink.
Newborn Gifts for a Regal Little Prince
Newborn babies often have a comforter; something they fall in love with, something to snuggle up with, which settles them down at night. It is usually a cuddly toy or a blanket but, with the Boys Baby Blanket by Mayoral, your little man can benefit from both. Crafted from a fleecy pale-blue fabric, it is soft and cosy against the skin, and a cute floppy-eared bunny sits at the top corner of the design.
Continuing with the bunny rabbit theme, the Boys Striped Romper is another lovely idea. It boasts a very cute dungaree and polo shirt design, with striped bunny ears popping out of the front pocket and easy-access snap buttons to the front and back. Pair this romper with the matching comfort blanket and create a newborn gift that gets our royal seal of approval.
For something a little more “grown-up”, we recommend the Boys T-Shirt & Shorts Set. It includes a soft short-sleeve tee and a pair of stretchy pants, with blue stripe detailing and an embroidered campervan to the front. Incredibly cute and comfy, it is the perfect newborn gift for a baby boy – especially with the warm summer months approaching!
And for the Duchess (i.e. Mummy)?
Rather than overloading a little prince or princess with tiny newborn clothes, why not think outside of the box and treat the new mummy instead. Here at OD’s, we think this Unisex Changing Bag by Mayoral is a fantastic newborn gift idea. It is constructed from cream leatherette fabric, with contrast piping throughout and – with numerous spacious pockets and handles – it is just what a yummy-mummy needs to stay organised. Combine with the Unisex Newborn Mayoral Changing Pad and create a luxurious newborn gift that your friend simply won’t expect.
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Their third child, brother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, has arrived and he will no doubt be the cutest little button we have ever seen. But whilst the rest of the nation eagerly awaits the announcement of a name, why not focus on the little prince or princess in your life? Check out our full online collection of newborn clothes and accessories by Mayoral and find the perfect newborn baby gift today.

Style is becoming a family affair and, for spring-summer 2018, mini-me clothing is one of the hottest trends within the fashion industry. Iconic fashion designers, such as Dsquared2, Stone Island, and Giuseppe Zanotti, have all created miniature junior styles that mirror those seen in their men’s and women’s SS18 collections. Let’s face it, children love to copy their parents. Boys want to be as “cool” as their dads and little 5-year-old girls can often be caught strutting up and down in mum’s high heels. So, we think they’d absolutely love being able to wear clothes that are just like yours!
Here we have picked out some of our favourite mini-me clothing combinations of the season. Browse through our full online collection of designer clothing for men, women, and juniors, double the fun this spring, and treat both yourself and your little one to a matching designer outfit…
With an extensive collection of stylish and comfortable trainers, Giuseppe Zanotti is a popular designer brand amongst both men and children. These designer trainers are crafted from rich and luxurious materials and they usually feature iconic brand details, such as chunky gold-tone hardware, dual front zips, and Zanotti’s distinctive signature.
Take for example the Mens Kriss Mid-Top Trainers. Fashioned in Italy from black calf leather, these sneakers meet all the key Giuseppe Zanotti criteria, including bold brand detailing to the upper and two gold-tone zips to the front of the design. And for that all-important mini-me look, style the little boy or girl in your life in the Unisex Juniors Sombry High Top Sneakers.
Philipp Plein has a signature style; he creates designer clothing for men that is very rock ‘n’ roll, often printed with the striking image of a skull and showcasing his iconic hexagonal logo. This rock ‘n’ roll theme also runs throughout his junior designer clothes collection, thus making it a fantastic place to start if you’d like to achieve a trendy mini-me look.
Whilst daddy dearest rocks the Mens Strass Skull T-Shirt, young trendy boys can easily copy the style with the Boys Esse Leaf T-Shirt. Both feature a distinctive monochrome design; crafted from black jersey fabric, with a black and white image of a skull and monochrome stud embellishments. Complete the look and pair both with dark-wash jeans and black trainers.
She might be too young for high heels, but she’s definitely not too young for a pair of designer shoes. Due to the magnificent collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Melissa, you can update your daughter’s casual footwear collection and treat yourself to a matching pair of heels in the process. There’ll be no more strutting (and tripping over) in the hallway, as she’ll have the same high-end shoes as you – just flatter, safer, and more practical…
Dsquared2 have created accompanying junior styles for many of the looks found in their SS18 menswear collection. The overall theme is “bad boy scouts”, with many pieces coming in a classic boy-scout brown colourway. Shirts and shorts are printed with an array of unique “bad boy” scout badges and with Dsquared2’s signature cool guy jeans popping up in both the menswear and junior designer clothing collection, it’s incredibly easy to create a mini-me look.
Start with the Mens Dsquared2 Patches Relax Dan Shirt and let your little man follow suit with the Boys Dsquared2 Patch T-Shirt. Style this tee with the Boys Dsquared2 Patch Shorts or, go full-on mini-me, and treat him to daddy’s favourite pair of cool guy jeans.
The cartoon teddy bear is a key Moschino icon. It has become part of the brand’s DNA, reinvented season after season, and SS18 is no exception. Similar styles and silhouettes are available in both Moschino’s womenswear and kids designer clothing collection, all stamped with the image of this iconic little bear.
If you’re jetting off on a sunny summer holiday, make sure to pack both the Womens Moschino Swim T-Shirt and the Girls Moschino Lolly T-Shirt. Both are crafted from white jersey fabric, with a casual tie-front design, and the famous Moschino bear printed on to the front. Create a mini-me look for your little fashionista and head to the beach in style.
Here at OD’s Designer Clothing, we have everything you could possibly need to create a trendy mini-me look for the kids. Above you’ll find some of our favourite mini-me clothing combinations; however, further styles can also be found both online and in-store – including collections by Neil Barrett, Stone Island, and Tommy Hilfiger. Take a look through our full range of designer clothing for men, women and juniors or pop into one of our stores today!
