Dutch high street brand (maybe a little bit more Abercrombie & Fitch territory) Scotch & Soda Amsterdam introduced a refined sartorial collection Atelier Scotch. I specially love the raw edge detailed coat: masculine, relaxed and playful. And the campaign images are absolutely sexy! Available online at official Scotch & Soda webstore.
This is the second edition of the collaboration. The previous edition is not so much a hit in the market. Lots of pieces are moved to sales rack. For the winter 2014, the same graphic is done in a cooler way: black against black. This toned-down style is my cup of tea. I am gonna get it soon.
