Scotch & Soda is getting into the footwear business.
The brand has signed a long-term licensing deal with HS Footwear GmbH, a subsidiary of Hamm Market Solutions GmbH & Co. KG in Osnabrück, Germany, for the international distribution of footwear. Scotch & Soda footwear will launch for spring 2019.
“The new Scotch & Soda Footwear collection is fully in line with the unique characteristics of the brand,” said Moritz, Hamm, managing director of Hamm Market Solutions. “We’re inspired by the world and curated by Amsterdam. This mindset enables us to develop a collection which will represent cool and edgy style looks for ladies and men. The utilized high-quality materials will be combined with special washings, handcrafted treatments and details.”
Dirk-Jan Stoppelenburg, chief executive officer of Scotch & Soda, said Hamm “understands our love of authentic craft and attention to detail. Our previous, one-off footwear styles were met with great enthusiasm, and we look forward to the same response for what will be a comprehensive footwear lineup.”
The collection will be shown to footwear stores, department stores and other authorized dealers in June.
