We just received our first shipment from Maison Scotch. It is just two styles, but many more are coming. Maison Scotch is the 1 year-old women’s spinoff from the men’s line Scotch and Soda. The Amsterdam based company has been around since the ’80s and largely centers around casual items than can be worn with denim.
Don’t be fooled though, the garments are definitely ahead of the curve design wise and have an attention to detail that surprises me. They do what I love, create directional apparel that maintains its easy-to-wear-ness. This line is perfect for Portland.
The collection has things like breezy lightweight summer tops you can wear with denim, dresses that will be your every day throw-on, jackets and denim. It is young, but not too youthful for women with a grown up sensibility. They offer some really forward pieces, leather jackets that really blow my mind, but being cautious about a new line, I started in the safe zone. This spring, I brought in a lot of playful tops and casual dresses, but starting in August, expect denim, and more adventurous selections from the collection. I leave you with some more photos from their Spring 2012 campaign. So excited!
