Scotch & Soda Fall-winter 2017 takes inspiration from an architectural ‘find’ – a symbol for globe trotting and world discovery back in 1912...
Still standing grand today, Amsterdam’s ‘Het Scheepvaarthuis’ or ‘Shipping House’, ignites this brand’s seasonal stories and themes.
The creative team wandered the corridors of this maritime HQ, drawing on the building’s design reimagining its leading nautical characters for a rich and opulent Fall-winter 2017 collection.
“We are explorers, captains, even sea bandits this FW17. These characters lend us heaps of beautiful design cues. We also draw inspiration from countries furthest from ours – that’s what the beginning of shipping was all about – finding new beauty and combining it with the best ideas and craft from back home in Amsterdam.” Marlou van Engelen, Creative Director Scotch & Soda
Scotch & Soda FW17 is a collection in which nautical references are reimagined as contemporary style statements throughout: a double breasted waistcoat gets a new longer length, sheer tops get voluminous ruffles inspired by the seas and explorer’s cable knits are given new edge with directional colorblocking.
