Fashion: SCOTCH & SODA SS18 COLLECTION

'SEVEN LIGHTS OF DAY'

Dutch brand Scotch & Soda launches another spectacular collection!

Taking inspiration from the solo travelers of the world whose only travel companion is Mother Nature, the SS 2018 “Seven Lights of Day” collection references the transformation of light through twenty-four hours on the trail.

From the soft pastels of sunrise and the heat-soaked hues of midday, to the indigos of dusk and the fiery brights of campfire light – each time of day has a unique identity; captured in the collection’s colour palette.

Golden khaki, rich navy, earthy pastels and other sky-inspired shades infuse an offering of relaxed tailoring and safari separates. The classic palm frond is reimagined in sunset-hued metallics – appearing as an allover print on bold chinos, and an ornate motif on a statement blazer. Subtle patterns reminiscent of a lunar eclipse bring both the inspiration and the collection full-circle.

NOW available in Scotch & Soda standalone stores.

A RETRO SUMMER

This year at Old Khaki it’s all about that chilled-out, vintage LA vibe. Setting the stage for a retro resort mood, key themes throughout the men’s range include tropical prints and a fresh summer colour palette underpinned by denim. Think powder blue, lemon, lilac, dusty pink, and sage, bolstered by saturated orange, navy, candy pink and electric yellow.

Get ready for lazy, hazy summer days in tropical print viscose shirts, swim shorts, powder blue light wash denim, side-stripe and paint splatter denim, as well as bold-striped tees and shirts.

Naturally, shorts are also core. Choose your own adventure in plain, colour block and printed swim shorts and boardies. You’ll also find stretch chino shorts in a range of cool summer colours as well as heavy-rip denim shorts.

The new SS18/19 collection will be available in stores from October or shop online at www.oldkhaki.co.za

But not all white shirts are created equal. To make it easier for you we’ve scouted the stores and handpicked 5 beautiful white shirts, each with it’s own unique detail – whether a cuff, a collar or a perfectly tailored fit.
