Amsterdam-based clothing company Scotch & Soda launched their new Toronto branch last night in the Eaton Centre. Guests were able to peruse the collection while listening to the DJ stylings of Armand Diego, sipping delightful Belvedere-based cocktails, and snacking on nibblies from Nyood.
While I enjoyed many elements of the clothing, specifically the attention to detail – patterned lining in a blazer, loads of fun buttons on a pant fly, fun jewellery with items, etc – on a whole it was underwhelming…slightly pricy for casual wear in my opinion. Though lots of shirts in lovely material that layered nicely with tanks. My favorite was the addition of thin hanging suspenders to trousers.
That being said, I liked the men’s selection a lot and would enjoy seeing guys dressed in their pants and shirts. Lots of fitted plaid shirts, a very lovely beige plaid jacket, and dark relaxed fitting denim.
It was a mostly muted collection, but I am looking forward to keeping an eye on what they have to show in seasons to come.
