Amsterdam based fashion brand Scotch & Soda was established in 2001 and spares no expense in ensuring each and every one of their garments are rich in detail and high in quality, yet still remain at attainable price points. Scotch & Soda is a classic brand in many ways, but also young and progressive when bringing new ranges to the forefront of the fashion world's attention. Scotch & Soda takes inspiration from the best tried and tested classic vintage styles and brings them up to date with contemporary features for fresh, exciting ranges that appeal to the masses.

Amsterdams Blauw is Scotch & Soda's ambitious denim collection; the name - literally meaning 'Amsterdam Blue', is the striking colour of paint that was used to paint Dutch porcelain in the Golden Century and the colour is still widely visible in the streets of Amsterdam. Denim apparel has become a casual wardrobe staple over the past 60 years thanks to denim jeans being an icon of the 1950's youth rebellion; the Amsterdams Blauw collection draws inspiration from this and looks to vintage American and Japanese denim aesthetics, combining it with the latest denim trends and exciting finishing techniques. The Amsterdams Blauw collection offers a new and fresh perspective on denim with its' free, experimental design approach and high quality construction, the exciting range includes all of your denim essentials  from jeans to shirts, tops, jackets and everything in between for the modern denim lover.

Amsterdams Blauw has gone from strength to strength since its' introduction to Scotch & Soda in late 2010 and is now celebrating its' 10th season at the brand. For the autumn/winter season, Scotch & Soda is taking to the waves with 'The boat that rocked' theme, taking inspiration from Radio Caroline, the pirate radio afloat in the Dutch sea during the 1960's; there is also a focus on explorers and survivors of the sea, making for a very nautical themed collection. Combining inspiration from the strong, stormy weather at sea with quirky, 1960's vintage elements, Amsterdams Blauw's latest offering is a collection to remember.

Throughout the sea-inspired collection, there are bold flashes of quintessential red and navy shades and breton stripe patterns, which is then contrasted against washed out shades of blue, green and denim white for a toughened, weathered effect. The finishing effects on the denim reflect the unusual shades of the stormy sea as well as the deep blue indigo and midnight hues. You can expect vintage, worn-in finishing across the denim pieces with stonewashed effects, abrasions and 3-D shaping for an authentic weathered style. Chinos have also been re-interpreted for the new season with inside-out fabric detailing, all over prints and casts of warm autumn hues. The rocker-explorer concept comes to life with lots of quirky hand-drawn Amsterdams Blauw graphics, tie-dye detailing and all-over prints across the t-shirts and shirts. Graphic tees pay tribute to 'The boat that rocked' inspiration with lots of nautically themed faded photo prints contrasted against bold slogans to bring the 1960's into the 21st century. You can also expect clean-cut plaid flannel shirts and patterned oxford shirts for a more premium finish to the collection. When the weather gets stormy outside, you can also rely on chunky knitwear with bold geometric patterns and rib knit cardigans to help you brave the elements.

The Amsterdams Blauw collection is the perfect addition to your casual wardrobe for the upcoming autumn/winter season; it's ideal for those with eclectic and individual tastes for a vintage-inspired style that will make you stand out from the crowd. So if you are after something a bit different to the usual denim styles, then the latest offering from the Amsterdams Blauws collection is made for you.
