sunday, sunday | now open 11am – 4pm


Hello Everybody!


We hereby declare Sunday is the new Thursday!  And therefore, we are now opening on Sundays from 11am – 4pm.




Reasons to shop on a Sunday;

  • It’s much more chilled, it’s the most relaxed day of the week (we think).




  • You can park so much more easily on the High Street (and who doesn’t love that!!) If the High Street is full, then it’s fairly cheap to park in the local car parks for a quick whizz in and out.  Or you could just walk if you’re close by.




  • Popping in on the way to lunch, or even on the way back from lunch couldn’t be easier. We are en route to The Pantiles, a short hop from all the lovely cafes and restaurants you might be visiting for Sunday lunch.




  • It makes Sunday evening so much nicer knowing you’ve got a lovely new item from bod & ted to ease you into the new working week.


  • and you can meet our lovely new Sunday Sales Advisor, Rachel!


Other things you might not know about bod & ted…

  • our mannequins have names.  This is Katherine.  She’s wearing a gorgeous sundress by Sessun (we still have a couple of these left), great summer weight cotton scarf by Becksondergaard, and cute basket bag by Ashiana.




(we also have another one called Anne)

  • it’s not just all clothes, we also sell lovely things like candles…these ones are by Skandinavisk (we like Lempi the most).




  • and bags… currently a totally tropical theme.




  • and we have lovely copper hangers which are beautiful to photograph (just an excuse to celebrate the joy of copper!)




But most of all, and we are sure you all know this…




So come in for some love on a Sunday!


See you soon.


Love bod & ted.

meet the brand / colourful rebel


Founded in 2013 in Amsterdam by twin brothers Bas and Frank, Colourful Rebel started out as a lifestyle magazine, but soon began to grow into a men and womenswear brand. The young entrepeneurs started selling t-shirts out of their student flats onto a small webshop and before they knew it they’d sold over 100,000 t-shirts and a viable business was born.

With a stand-alone store in Amsterdams city centre, they’re now starting to make waves over in the UK and they here they are now in bod & ted.

meet the brand / markus lupfer


Are you ready to meet Markus Lupfer, our most anticipated brand this year? You may have already noticed our new brand in store and now it’s all available online! Shop Markus Lupfer on our new-in section. We love, love, love this brand! Lupfer has such a witty and unique approach to sequinned embroidery, the perfect balance between easy-to-wear and dressed up. His use of surreal prints, embroidery and graphic embellishment have gained him a legion of celebrity fans including Beyonce, Madonna, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Cara Delevigne, Rhianna and Olivia Palermo, to name a few! If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us!

Markus Lupfer graduated in 1997 from London’s University of Westminster with a first-class honors degree. With his refreshingly unique style and artful way he redefined everyday basics.

“Markus Lupfer’s been very clever in making his sequinned sweaters an item with a bit of a cult following that draws followers from a really surprisingly broad customer-base. They strike such a great balance between easy and dressed-up and witty and smart – pieces to make people from teenagers to grown ups smile and feel good in it almost anywhere.”

Now the best bit! What we’ve got in stock, scroll away…

meet the brand / sessùn

Sessùn is a new friendly face joining us for AW17! French designer, Emma François has developed a beautiful women’s collection that’s filled with ethnic prints from her time travelling abroad. It all started in 1994, when she was 21 years old and was taking a trip to Guatemala. At the time she was studying anthropological economics and the cultural richness that South America had to offer really inspired her. Her interest in anthropology shows in the way she works, she has an ethical view of the world and a respect for the traditional knowledge that’s helped her to build Sessùn as a brand.
It’s a brand which, although rooted in its own time, is still subtle enough to lean towards timelessness.
 The French brand is now a mix of eclectic prints with earthy tones, its feminine yet functional aesthetic is seen across simple shift dresses, cotton separates and fine knitwear. Scroll down to see the pieces we have available in store and online, right now… Shop Sessun AW17 on our website.
