Amsterdam-based brand Scotch & Soda have released their fall collection, and the men’s line is sure to brighten up even the grimmest of days as we transition into the winter season. They’ve stuck to a color palette of ‘muted earthy hues’ teamed with pops of vivid color for this latest collection. We were joined by Amsterdam-based fashion expert Dirk De Vries of Adviesjagers to take a look at the collection.
Height of Autumn – An Introduction to the FW Collection
French model Benjamin Reynier was once again the featured model for the menswear collection in their Height of Autumn collection, where we saw these earthy tones come through as well as layering and just a hint of bold. Seasonal additions brought in a mismatched style and warm orange hues to the collection. Large check print was also a focus on outer layers
“In the FW19 editorial we saw the vivid colors introduced into the collection to brighten things up,” says De Vries, “These statement colors were complemented well with a series of intense prints that were not only used for the men’s collection but the women’s too, ” he continues.
One of the more iconic prints we noticed on the men’s collection of the vibrant stamping of the Scotch and Soda initials on items like this bomber jacket (shown below).
Classic autumnal styles we usually see, such as check also were in the spotlight; this time enhanced by a metallic thread and complimented with moody blue/green shades to tone things down (Just a little). Houndstooth also made an appearance in the editorial F/W story.
Bold new takes on layering and ‘contradictory colors’ as you can see below in fuschia and maroon mix. All pulled together with blue check pants and a leather belt.
