Scotch & Soda opens at Westfield Carindale
Amsterdam label Scotch & Soda has opened its third store in Australia (the second for Queensland) at Westfield Carindale. In a new format of shop fit-outs, the new Carindale shop is part of the brand’s Tent Concept, fitting a vintage-inspired tent inside an existing retail shell.
Only the third of its kind in the world, the new Brisbane Tent Concept store plays host to the Scotch & Soda men’s collection, the Maison Scotch collection for women and the Amsterdams Blauw denim collections. Founded in 1985, the Dutch label has grown to be internationally recognised, expanding on the main line with multiple tangent brands.
The tent at the Carindale store has been custom made from natural cotton and cognac-coloured leather, with untreated oak parquetry flooring and a mosaic-tiled centrepiece underfoot. Vivid framed photography lines the walls, with black pipes creating hanging racks and a splash of greenery amongst industrial lighting. Drop by the new store to browse the fall/winter collection of chunky knits, tweed jackets, flannelette shirts and leather accessories that combine to form a 1950/1960s British rocker look.
