For its debut at New York Fashion Week, Scotch & Soda hosted a presentation featuring astronomic maps projected on the ceiling, movie shorts, and live musical performances. Creative director Marlou van Engelen infused the women’s and men’s collections with a youthful mood that reflected free-spirited references, from folk to bohemian.
The eclectic women’s lineup included cozy blanketlike coats and ponchos worked in vivid tones, striped sweaters, and hippie-ish embroidered tops and vests. Flowers blossomed on relaxed suits, as well as on maxi dresses with soft bows at the neck and on a pair of glamorous allover sequin wide-leg pants.
For men, the nomadic inspirations blended well, from a folkloric handmade colorful poncho to a quilted Japanese-inspired kimono and cargo pants with floral embroidery details. Today’s globetrotter fashionista will feel right at home in this well-executed collection.
