Amsterdam meets New York at Scotch & Soda and draws from the rest of the world as well. Dutch-based styles are accentuated with accents and finishes that are inspired by the design team’s worldly travels and findings. This includes trips to Alaska, road tripping through Morocco, getting lost in the New Zealand wild, and hopping from Hong Kong to India to Italy.
In Lower Manhattan, Scotch & Soda have made themselves available to all New Yorkers in need of a fashion upgrade at their 18 Fulton Street location near the historic South Street Seaport.
For men, the collections revolve around wintry themes with dark tone colors and earthy textures. Women can enjoy a variety of prints and styles reminiscent of the 80s and 90s. Kids can enjoy different modes of expression. For them, Scotch & Soda offer clothes with more vibrant colors and themes.
The process of Scotch & Soda’s design starts in the heart of Amsterdam at Number 22, a repurposed historic church that now serves as the hub of their process. The designs are fleshed out in diverse collections with meshings of the different designs and materials collected from team trips. As a result, the collections that arrive at the stores near you give a taste of the unique and diverse places that inspired them.
