When crafting a new collection, many designers look to an iconic muse to inform the style and messaging at the core of each design. And, this is exactly what the Dutch fashion name Scotch & Soda have done for its Winter 2021 men and women’s collection.
With the fearless ethos and aviator style synonymous with the American pioneer Amelia Earhart in mind, Scotch & Soda looked to make a bold statement when revealing their latest collections. With Amelia’s infamous statements of “no borders, just horizons, only freedom” and “the most effective way to do it, is to do it”, providing the foundation for the collection, shoppers are offered a wardrobe rooted in bold and limitless function.
And, as for the clothes themselves, each garment exudes Amelia’s blended aesthetic as genderless bomber-esque jackets , crafted from water-repellent cotton and padded with REPREVE®, meet utility suits, effortlessly relaxed denimwear and faux leather cuts. Plus, in the name of duality, the glamour of the underground 1920s party scene makes its way into the collection thanks to maxi gowns and floral jacquard trousers. But, while both collections boast designs that hope to seamlessly blend into your everyday wardrobes, references to pilot wear run rife in the silhouettes and tailoring, meaning that the collection’s inspiration is irresistibly apparent.
