Scotch & Soda


About Us

Scotch & Soda celebrates the free spirit of Amsterdam. We champion individuality, authenticity and the power of self-expression to create the unexpected – an attitude reflected in our unique designs.

Our Designs

Eclectic and modern, our playful designs redefine everyday dressing. We dare to match the unmatchable to deliver our authentically Amsterdam aesthetic, boldly clashing colours, prints, and textures.

Our collections are grounded in an appreciation of the classics: a white shirt, workwear chino, trucker jacket, or timeless leather bomber, which we then rework with irreverent details into looks that are all our own.

Beautiful as our designs are, we believe they shouldn’t cost the earth. As part of our commitment to becoming a more responsible and transparent company, we’re focused on reducing our environmental footprint by making smarter choices every day.

Our History

Established in 1985 first as a menswear brand in Amsterdam, our collections now include women, kids, denim, fragrances, and accessories, occupying a unique space in the global fashion landscape of today.

Our boys’ range arrived in 2008 and was the first to pioneer ‘mini-me’ dressing, applying the same exacting craftsmanship as our men’s line. Womenswear was added in 2009 after women were spotted in our men’s clothes, underlining the inclusive nature of our designs. 2010 marked several firsts, including a new girls’ range, as well as a premium denim line. In the same year, we also unveiled Barfly, our now-iconic unisex fragrance.

Today, we continue to experiment with collections that embody freedom and creativity. Our designs can now be found at over 7,000 selected retailers worldwide, including 247 standalone stores in unexpected corners of the world’s biggest cities such as New York, London, and Paris.

Our Design Studio

Brimming with creativity and energy, our design studio is where our unique collections come to life. Vested in a former church along the Amsterdam canals, our design studio is at once cosy and lofty, the paint of semi-intact and ancient masterpieces still clinging to the building’s vaulted ceilings. Colourful, curated chaos and living work of art, its floors are often covered in a patchwork of fabrics, prototypes, books, graphics, paintings and colour cards. We celebrate the free spirit of Amsterdam. Designer Marlou van Engelen has led the creative direction of the brand since 2014:

Our style is down to the free-thinking, all-inclusiveness that’s at the heart of Amsterdam. We design our eclectic collections for those that care about what they look like, yet have much more going on in their lives – classics with a twist and statements that are effortless to wear.
