Scotch & Soda
From San Francisco to Sydney, and Boston to Bilbao, Amsterdam-based clothiers Scotch & Soda are on a global mission, having opened tens of stores around the world in the last year alone.
August saw Bangkok join the S&S store lineup, with the brand new CentralWorld flagship marking their entry not only into the city but also the Thai retail scene at large. And based on the huge, hip crowd that gathered at the grand opening party, it was clear from the start that the brand’s quirky Dutch fashion rings a sartorial bell with Bangkok’s most style-savvy set.
Occupying a covetable first floor space with high ceilings, rows of spotlights, tiled wood floors and industrial shelving, Scotch & Soda has all the hallmarks of the men’s and women’s style you might see canal-side in the Netherlands – dapper tweed coats, colourful leather bombers, patterned jumpers and printed tees. And from this season’s collection, there’s cropped party blazers, striped slub tees and embroidered dresses for gals, plus diamond quilted jackets, Japanese-inspired workwear shirts and cashmere crewnecks for guys.
For extra Dutch dazzle, shop the pieces from their exclusive ‘Amsterdams Blauw’ line, a denim-focused project that reinterprets Japanese precision with a signature European aesthetic – we particularly like the ladies’ Jolie bootcut and gents’ slim-fit Ralston. Go Dutch!
