Dutch brand Scotch & Soda, invites us to take a journey across time and various locations for their Autumn Collection. Scotch & Soda referencing diverse locations that range from a small Norwegian village to the Highlands of Scotland. The collection was debuted during New York Fashion week earlier this year, and is now released in store and online.
Although Scotch & Soda has been around since the ‘80s as a menswear label, the Amsterdam based fashion brand made a new start in 2001, when three new owners joined their broad experience and shared love for making great garments. After Scotch & Soda was re-launched, new lines were gradually added, such as Maison Scotch for women, and Scotch Shrunk and Scotch R’Belle for kids. In late 2010, the first Scotch & Soda was launched by the name of BARFLY. Scotch’s youngest and most ambitious project is Amsterdams Blauw, a compact high profile denim collection.
A Nordic clash of old and new, the collection features military and outdoor gear, hi-tech sportswear, workwear, and smart/casual pieces. The pieces contain bold colours, patterns, and graphics that juxtapose rich hues, fair isles, and tartans.
With outerwear/knitwear at the collection’s core, varsity jackets, luxe sweatpants, dress shirts, cocktail blazers, and winter accessories give variation and depth. The collection utilises tweeds, wools, satins, velvets, and silks. Standout details from pieces are the mountaineering zips and clips, fringing, wind-proofing, and quilting.
