Where Vancouver - - Shopping -

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.
