Trying to think of an Easter present for your son? Perhaps something that will last longer than a chocolate egg? Don’t worry, we have just the thing! Our children’s store has recently been hit with the latest lines from HUGO BOSS, Neil Barrett, Lanvin and more. So why not treat your little bunny to a kids designer tracksuit and let him celebrate Easter in style.

 

Here we take a look at just a few of our favourite styles of the season:

 

1. The Boys BOSS Black and Grey Tracksuit

 

BOSS is a legendary brand that you can always rely on for the staples – and they’ve certainly hit the mark with this boys designer tracksuit. A two-piece set, cut from soft cotton fabric and boasting a trendy colour-block design. It offers both style and comfort. Throw it on with any HUGO BOSS t-shirt and a pair of white trainers and you’ve got the ideal Easter outfit for a classy little boy.

 

2. The Boys The North Face (TNF) Slacker Hoody

 

Easter is the perfect time for a family day out and – whether you head to the seaside or the local park – you can’t go wrong with a kids designer tracksuit by TNF. We absolutely love this grey marl zip-up hoody. It provides warmth and protection on chilly days. But it also has a distinctive designer touch. Style with the matching Boys TNF Slacker Pants and he’s ready to explore the great outdoors.

 

3. The Boys Neil Barret Felpa Shorts

 

These simple jersey shorts are perfect for days when the sun (hopefully!) makes an appearance. Coming in a bright green colourway, they feature the brand’s iconic lighting print on each side and strike the perfect balance between high-end style and comfort. Add the matching Boys Neil Barrett Bolt T-shirt and create a boys designer tracksuit that will be the envy of all his friends.

 

4. The Boys Lanvin Tracksuit

 

If you’re jetting away for the Easter hols, this is a great designer tracksuit for the little man to travel in. It’s a luxury two-piece, built with maximum comfort in mind. Not only is it crafted from super-soft cotton jersey, but it also boasts a cosy fleece lining and features stretchy cuffs throughout. Team it up with the Boys Lanvin Print T-Shirt and the Boys Lanvin Trainers and complete his ‘airport’ look.

 

5. The Baby Boys Moschino Tracksuit

 

You have to agree; this kids designer tracksuit is simply adorable. It includes a zip-front hoody and a pair of joggers – both of which are soft, lightweight and comfy enough for all-day wear. Plus, each piece is detailed with the brand’s iconic teddy bear print. Complete the look with this super-cute Baby Boys Moschino Teddy T-Shirt and he’ll be the best-dressed toddler at the Easter party.

Choosing an outfit for a special event may fill you with dread - but it doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it’s surprisingly easy to get suited and booted with the help of HUGO BOSS for men.


This is the go-to brand for all formal occasions and – whether you’re heading for a day at the races or a friend’s fancy wedding – we guarantee it has the perfect formal attire for you.


4 steps to create a dapper look with HUGO BOSS suits


1. Pick out the perfect HUGO BOSS shirt


Every man should have a HUGO BOSS shirt in his wardrobe. Cut from the finest woven materials and tailored to perfection, they are a staple, designed to be worn time and time again. A variety of different styles are available. However, one of our season favourites has to be the Men’s BOSS Jordi Shirt – with its fitted long-sleeved design, stand-up neckline and luxurious Italian fabric.


We’re also currently loving the Men’s BOSS Jenno Shirt. It may have a classic HUGO BOSS design; but, thanks to its fine gingham pattern, we think it’s a great way to modernise your formal look. Invest in this HUGO BOSS shirt and you’ve got the perfect starting point for your ‘special occasion’ outfit.


2. Select a pair of HUGO BOSS trousers


Sometimes you may be able to get away with a pair of designer jeans. But if the occasion has a strict formal dress code, HUGO BOSS trousers are an ideal option. Take for example the Men’s BOSS Rice 3-D Trousers in dark blue. Crafted from stretch cotton with a tapered slim fit, they offer excellent all-day comfort, and their faintly faded design gives them a stylish contemporary touch.


They may not be part of the HUGO BOSS for men range, but we also want to note these Men’s Dsquared2 Trousers. Coming in a navy colourway, they are highly reminiscent of styles by HUGO BOSS and offer an excellent alternative to pair with any of the shirts outlined above.


3. Layer up with a HUGO BOSS blazer


Next, you need a jacket to smarten up your look and give it a formal edge – and you can’t go wrong with the Men’s BOSS Hartlay Blazer. This traditional HUGO BOSS blazer is made from a textured waffle-style fabric, with contrasting white buttons and a matching pocket handkerchief. Simply layer it over a HUGO BOSS shirt and you’re ready to socialise in style.


The Men’s BOSS Norwin 4-J Blazer is another great option. With a slightly more relaxed feel, it still benefits from a sharp cut and is crafted from the brand’s signature refined fabrics. Throw on this HUGO BOSS blazer with jeans and a shirt and you’ve nailed ‘smart-casual’.


4. Finish with HUGO BOSS shoes


The final touch is a pair of high-quality HUGO BOSS shoes – such as the Men’s BOSS Carmons. These are a worthwhile investment for any modern man. Expertly crafted in Italy, they are made from full-grain calf leather and boast a trendy burnished brown finish. Tie them up using the classic five-eye lace system and your formal outfit is complete and ready to go.

Did you know, Mother’s Day is just over a week away? This year it falls on Sunday 31st March. It’s the one day of the year that is dedicated to her. A chance to spoil her rotten and show her how much she means to you. So, why not forget about the bunch of flowers and the cheap box of chocolates and treat her to something as special as she is – such as a piece of Vivienne Westwood Jewellery.

 

This is a collection with something for everyone. Most Vivienne Westwood jewellery features the signature Orb emblem, showcased in different ways to create a variety of looks. Pieces come in silver, gold and rose-gold hues with sparkly Swarovski crystals – and whether Mum is a fan of this iconic designer or just loves the finer things in life – they are the perfect mother’s day gift.  

 

Here we take a look at just a few of the styles that we think will put a huge smile on her face.

 

5 pieces of Vivienne Westwood jewellery that Mum will love


1. Vivienne Westwood Sorada Small Bas Relief Pendant


You can’t go wrong with any Vivienne Westwood necklace. However, we’re particularly loving this gold-tone Orb pendant. Set within a gold-tone frame, it features a pavé effect of white glistening crystals and a polished gem to the front. These details give it an elegant feel and, to show Mum just how much you care, it pairs well with the matching Vivienne Westwood Sorada Bas Relief Bracelet.


2. Vivienne Westwood Kika Bracelet


This is a classic Vivienne Westwood bracelet with a feminine twist. Sitting in the middle of a dainty rose-gold chain, the Orb is decorated with pink and blue crystals – and the effect is truly beautiful. The bracelet is also hand-made and comes complete with little details, such as a logo-embossed tag. Treat your mum to this colourful piece and, we guarantee, it’ll brighten up her day.  


3. Vivienne Westwood Lena Small Orb Pendant


We absolutely adore this statement Vivienne Westwood necklace. It has the brand’s characteristic edgy feel – featuring a 3D crystal Orb and detailed all-over with silver-tone studs – and it’s the type accessory that will never go out of fashion. If your mum is a lover of Westwood’s quirky high-end brand, we reckon it’s a piece she will wear time and time again, for many years to come.


4. Vivienne Westwood Iris Bas Relief Earrings


Every woman needs a pair of Vivienne Westwood earrings in her life – and these pretty studs have Mum written all over them. Crafted from faux pearl and detailed with gold throughout, they are chic yet understated and they will add the perfect final touch to her evening outfit. If you’re feeling generous, you could also treat her to the matching Vivienne Westwood Iris Bas Relief Bracelet!


5. Vivienne Westwood Mini Bas Relief Pin


For something a little bit different, this Vivienne Westwood brooch is the perfect mother’s day gift. Cut in the shape of the Orb and embellished with crystals, it is a great way to introduce high-end fashion to her everyday look. You could use it to style up a bag or coat. Or, pin it to this stylish Vivienne Westwood scarf and show Mum exactly how much you appreciate everything she does.

What does ‘smart casual’ actually mean? It’s a phrase that people use all the time. But choosing an outfit that’s both smart and casual can be confusing – and, for most people, it usually leads to a heap of clothes on the bedroom floor and a fashion faux-pas on your behalf.

 

Unless, of course, you own John Smedley knitwear

 

John Smedley is a brand that goes way back to the 18th century. Renowned for its luxury knitwear and everyday staples, each garment is carefully crafted from the finest yarn, and the collection boasts a timeless yet modern look. Trust us, if you’re looking for the definition of smart casual, this is it – and here we outline some of our favourite John Smedley pieces to get you started.

 

John Smedley 

 

For events that are more smart than casual

 

Every man should have a John Smedley jumper in his wardrobe. Typically made from fine merino wool, they are lightweight yet offer supreme quality. Whether you’re a roll neck or crew neck type of guy, there’s a style for you, and they’re a great starting point for a stylish smart casual outfit.

 

Take for example the Men’s John Smedley Cherwell Roll Neck Sweater. Available in black and midnight blue, this is the perfect option for a classy work’s doo or a day at the races. Simply style it with a pair of chinos or tailored trousers and layer it up with a blazer for an effortlessly refined look.

 

If you prefer a slightly more relaxed silhouette, we recommend pairing this John Smedley sweater with dark-denim jeans and a fitted jacket. Or perhaps swap it out for the Men’s John Smedley Belper Long Sleeve Knitted Polo Shirt in navy blue. Either way, you’ll have nailed the smart casual dress code and can head to the racecourse knowing that you’ve dressed perfectly for the occasion.

 

For events that are more casual than smart

 

A John Smedley polo is one of the brands longest-standing styles. The colours and patterns may have changed in line with the latest trends, but it’s main features have stayed the same since 1932.  Short sleeves, elasticated cuffs, a fashion collar and that iconic 3-button placket to the front.

 

As we head into the warmer spring and summer months, a John Smedley polo is the perfect option to create a smart casual look. We currently have a few different styles to choose from – including the Men’s John Smedley Baylee Striped Polo Shirt and the Silk Polo Shirt – and any of these can be teamed with shorts and trainers for casual days in the office and after-work drinks at the pub.

 

For days that are a little cooler, simply combine the polo with a pair of jeans and the Men’s John Smedley Maclean Jacket and you’re on the right track for that smart casual workplace dress code.

If you struggle to understand the phrase ‘smart casual’, the John Smedley collection is the perfect place to start. Just add a few of these iconic pieces to your wardrobe and you’re covered for all those occasions when you need to look your best – without going over-the-top.

You’ve heard of Tommy Mallet by now, right? The popular ex-TOWIE star? He broke away from reality TV to become a high-end designer and, it’s fair to say, we’ve been in awe of his footwear creations ever since. With the new SS19 collection recently hitting our store, we thought it was a good time to revisit Mallet footwear and pick out our favourite styles for both men and women.


The SS19 collection of Tommy Mallet Trainers


Mallet footwear is known for being versatile, and this latest collection is no exception. Styles are suitable for all occasions. Dress them up or down, wear them for work or play – the choice is yours!


A clean, minimalist theme runs through both men’s and women’s styles. Understated colours are combined with the brand’s signature metal hardware and, made from the highest quality materials, they boast a level of comfort that is difficult to match. Invest in SS19 Mallet trainers and, we guarantee, they’ll become your faithful ‘go to’ pair.


Men’s Mallet Trainers


Our favourite style of the season has to be the Men’s Mallet BTLR Elast Midnight Trainers. Brand new and strictly limited edition. They come in a classic black colourway, with an iconic gold heel clip, an elasticated front strap and the brand’s signature Italian sole. Throw them on with ankle-grazing jeans and an oversized t-shirt and these Mallet trainers can be worn all-year-round.


For something a little more daring, the Men’s Mallet BTLR Hiker Camo Ink Trainers are a fantastic option – featuring a subtle camo-print that is incredibly on-trend for this season.


Or perhaps combine the Men’s Mallet Archway 1.0 White Gum Trainers with a pair of dark blue cords, a white hoody and a light-wash denim jacket. The stark contrast will draw attention to your new Mallet shoes and the ‘yuppie’ look is perfect for both days in the office and drinks after work.



Women’s Mallet Trainers


The SS19 female collection revisits some of the brand’s classic styles, giving them a slick and summery tweak. Take for example the Women’s Mallet Diver Trainers. Available in blush pink and dusty grey, with soft velvet inserts throughout, they are exactly what you need to brighten up your wardrobe. Team them with ripped high-waisted jeans and tuck in a logo tee to complete the look. 


If you’re the type of girl who likes to make a statement, the Women’s Mallet BTLR Elast Silver Trainers are the style for you. We absolutely love the glossy silver finish of these Mallet shoes. Constructed from luxury leather, with a mesh textile insert, they are made for everyday comfort – but they also have those signature brand details to make sure your footwear stands out from the crowd.


Let these Mallet trainers shine and simply style with dark jeans and a jumper. As temperatures start to rise, ditch the jeans in favour of a button-through denim skirt and finish with a branded t-shirt.

Looking to spend more time with your little man? It can be difficult balancing work and family life. But with the Easter holidays on the horizon and a long bank holiday weekend to enjoy, it’s the perfect opportunity to set aside a few hours and do something special with your son.


The North Face is a brand centred around activities – encouraging people to go outside and explore, dressed in clothing that is stylish, comfy and built for adventure.


Here we suggest three father-son activities for you to try and pick out some of the best North Face clothing to do them in.


3 activities to do wearing The North Face clothing


1. Go camping for a night


As a kid, there’s nothing more exciting than a camping trip – even if you stay in your back garden. Just take the time to pitch the tent together, enjoy the fresh air and – when the sun goes down – tell stories by torchlight. Trust us, it’s a bonding experience that he will never forget.


Camping is always cold at this time of year, so make sure you both wrap up warm in North Face clothing. Dad can protect against the elements with the Men’s The North Face Grey Fine Pants and Fine Box Hooded Sweatshirt. Mini-camper can stay toasty with the Boy’s The North Face Slacker Pants and Hoodie, and if you do head to a campsite, pack it all up in the Men’s Rodey Backpack.


2. Explore the great outdoors


The North Face clothing is all about getting outside and exploring the great outdoors – so why not use this as your inspiration? Take a hike along a nature trail or grab the bikes and go cycling together. You can stay local or drive out to somewhere more scenic. Just be sure to invest in a suitable outfit for you and your little explorer.


We recommend starting with a sturdy pair of trainers for Dad. The Men’s The North Face Hedgehog GTX Shoes are packed with technical features and will ensure you stay sure-footed on the rockiest of terrain. Pair them with the Men’s The North Face Tech Woven Pants and the 1990 Retro Mountain Light Goretex Jacket and you’ll be ready for whatever nature has to offer.


When it comes to the little one, it’s best to use layers. That way, he’ll be warm enough in chilly conditions and – if temperatures start to rise – it’s easy to shed a piece of clothing. Style the Boy’s The North Face Tech Pants with the Boy’s Box T-Shirt in White and add the Boy’s The North Face Zipline Rain Jacket. Each style is designed to allow easy movement and they will keep him cosy and dry whatever the weather.


3. Take a trip to the seaside


There’s something about the beach that kids love. Even in the early days of spring, when the sea breeze is a little nippy, it’s a brilliant place to visit with your son. You can play football on the sand, build a masterpiece sandcastle, and skim pebbles out to sea. But don’t put a damper on the fun by not being dressed appropriately.


It’s a good idea for Dad to don the Men’s The North Face BC Slides. Constructed from durable water-resistant material, they are perfect for use on the wet sand and they can be easily styled with a pair of joggers and the Men’s The North Face Light T-Shirt. Boys can look the part in the Khaki Exploration Shorts and the Boy’s The North Face Mudder Trucker Baseball Cap. Just be sure to have a couple of extra layers for you both, in case the weather suddenly takes a turn for the worst.

The North Face is a collection designed with the great outdoors in mind and, whatever activity you decide on, there will be a style to suit.

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.

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.
