|Me wearing: a spring/summer '12 Maison Scotch trophy jacket with my favourite jeans by MiH Jeans and |
Topshop jewelled sandals.
Amsterdam-based Scotch & Soda have been around since the '80s, but it wasn't until spring/summer '10, when they launched their womenswear line Maison Scotch that I heard about them.
I love their souped-up basics, which to me, despite their Dutch roots, have an air of Parisian cool about them. You can count on Maison Scotch to deliver a gorgeous trophy jacket (the one above, from the spring/summer '12 collection, has an irresistible Isabel Marant quality to it, at a fraction of the price!) Breton tops, fab shirts- from Western to denim styles, as well as fun, tailored denim, in seasonal colours and prints.
Bohemian rock chick is how I'd describe Maison Scotch right now, for spring/summer '12 that means pieces like the tie-dye shorts (below) and for next season; a mix of homespun knitwear, leather-look jeans, with a sprinkling of sequins. Needless to say I love the lot!
In just six seasons Maison Scotch have carved out a strong identity and place in the ever-growing mid-market, and personally I can't get enough. Keep up the good work I say...
