Amsterdam-based Scotch & Soda’s (page 34) first West Coast outpost recently landed, bringing along an array of casually chic staples for men and women. The fashion-forward label has its roots in Holland, but the collection is inspired by travel to far-flung locales. So what does jet-set brand ambassador Marcel LaFrance pack into his carry-on? “Anything in Home Alone,” he says, of the brand’s athleisure line. Plus, he always saves space for the men’s Tokyo Toujours pant, and “something bold.” Runway ready, in a snap.
