Union Market now has a new tenant. Scotch & Soda, the Amsterdam-based clothing store opened earlier this month. Born in Amsterdam in 1985, Scotch & Soda celebrates the free spirit of its birth city. Endlessly optimistic, the brand champions individuality, authenticity, and the power of self-expression to create the unique – an attitude reflected in its designs. The Scotch & Soda collections include menswear, womenswear, kidswear, denim, eyewear, fragrances, and accessories.
In store now is Scotch & Soda’s spring/summer collection. The collection takes a modern look at vintage styles curated directly from the brand’s own archives. For styling tips, look for pieces in bold prints and bright colors to carry you through the entire season.
The interior of the new location carries Scotch & Soda’s “Free Spirit” store design concept launched last year. Inspired by the power of self-expression and the free spirit of Amsterdam, the city where the brand was born, the concept combines warm colors and sleek design elements to connect the expected with the unexpected. It also includes sustainable features such as LED lighting, FSC-certified wood herringbone flooring and new hangers made of recycled materials.
The Union Station opening is part of Scotch & Soda’s plan to expand its retail store reach in the United States. Since last year, the company opened locations in Scottsdale, Boston, King of Prussia, and Charlotte. Additional openings are slated for Detroit and San Antonio over the next two months. By the end of September this year, the brand’s store count in North America will reach 50 locations. This will include 46 in the United States and four in Canada. In addition to the brick and mortar locations, the company’s online operations also ship to over 70 countries worldwide.Scotch and Soda joins Union Market as several other new businesses have recently opened up in the area. With these additions, Union Market is quickly becoming a not to be missed destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment.
Scotch and Soda is located at 1301 N Street NE. in Union Market.
