Scotch and Soda is a Dutch fashion label that prides itself on offering clothes that are high quality, rich in detail and affordable. Based in Amsterdam, the label began in the 80’s but was given a fresh new start in 2001 when three new owners joined the team. Since officially re-launching in 2002 the brand has gone from strength to strength and its current collection is what’s really caught our attention.

Scotch and Soda’s SS12 men’s collection stays true to the brands old school sense of style but this season adds a contemporary twist ensuring the pieces are stylish yet easy –to-wear, perfect for when travelling! This high quality line has been designed with four themes in mind – ‘Plage Privee’ a suited and sharp summer look, ‘Days off, we love Saturdays’ a timeless and authentic look showcases must-have basics, ‘Breton Behaviours’ an honest blue-white-red denim look with French and nautical influences, and finally the ‘Colour Collisions’ theme, colour blocking at its finest.
The range is extremely varied and features tees and polo’s, shirts, knits and denim across a range of striking colour palettes, so you’re sure to find something that you like. What’s more, Scotch & Soda have continued its offering of loungewear jersey pieces, which come under the aptly named the ‘Home Alone’ collection, so guys can enjoy vintage style sweat wear in tones of grays, sands, whites and blues. Cosy.
Maison Scott, is the women’s range from Amsterdam fashion label, Scotch and Soda and its SS12 collection will not disappoint. The collection has been self-described as blending ‘New York’s street style, Japan’s innovative design and the ‘je ne sais quoi’ sense of style of Parisiennes’, (how very worldly!) and showcases Hawaiian shirts, chino’s, blazers and embroidered dresses, as well as beaded jewelry, leather bags and printed scarves. For the SS12 collection the brands signature sun-faded colours have been mixed with bright fresh tones and the result is a beautiful and eye-catching range. The collection boasts fabrics from around the world including delicate washed silk, French lace, cotton-silk blends, sporty cotton mesh, natural linens and washed twills. Mm-mmm.
To compliment the SS12 range, Maison Scotch has also released the capsule collection, 'Ete Blanc, les pièces blanches'. As the name suggest, this is an all white collection which is perfect for throwing over the bikini. Our favourite pieces are the crisp white boyfriend shirt and embroidered dress.
This season, Scotch and Soda is offering complete looks for both men and women and we are loving what we see. Whether you’re after basics or some stand out pieces for your travels, Scotch and Soda really has it all. Check out www.scotch-soda.com for more info.
