The Scotch & Soda team is excited to celebrate the Alchemy Blues Project with the launch of the limited edition jacket. The Alchemy Blues Project tells the story of four graphic designers whose lives evolve around their passion for denim and love for the city of Amsterdam.
Inspired by the theme: Alchemy, the designers customized five Japanese selvedge trucker jackets. Free to let go of the usual way of working but keeping in mind the four basic elements of alchemy- air, earth, wind and fire, the jackets were re-imagined into four individual style pieces. The fifth piece was created by the designers all together and went into production.
“The seasonal theme of the Amsterdams Blauw FW14 collection, Alchemy fitted perfectly with the idea of recreating our most authentic and humble selvedge jacket into a true collector’s item. Alchemists strive to turn base materials into something noble as silver and gold. We immediately saw the link with denim where we effortless transform a base material such as cotton into something as rich as a selvedge indigo fabric. Captivated by this idea we started creating”. Said Creative team at Scotch & Soda.
Limited to 250 pieces, the fifth jacket is available now in selected Scotch & Soda stores in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, UK, Italy, Sweden, USA and online, and retails for €349.95. Doesn’t it look really cool? I think the design pieces on it are really creative and fun! You can see more on the project online at their website by clicking here.
The brand that continues to leave a lasting impression on me, Paige Denim, has released yet another style that will have everyone swooning. Continuing their love for edgier styles, the new Ollie is a pair that fits just right along with the Indio, Marley and Edgemont cuts.
The new style features a detail that has become quite the signature of the brand, hip zippers. But unlike the previous pairs, this new jean has them hidden under welt detailing. It doesn’t just end there as they also feature the detail at the back pocket along with moto stitching around the knees. I can’t wait to see these out on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kate Moss.

Get ready for patched to take over. Next to release their take on the trend is Citizens of Humanity with their new Emerson in Shoreditch. Most have approached the style in a classic way by choosing blue denim with either lighter denim patches or ones of a different textile.
Citizens of Humanity took a more dark approach with theirs. This style comes in a washed blue/black wash with inverted denim patches in their cropped slouchy Emerson fit. The easy feel makes them perfect for that casual weekend or for work dressed up with your favorite white button down. Click here to purchase these jeans from SHOPBOP for $278.
A new print is something that is few and far between. We have the classic inspired pairs by wildlife and tapestry, but when do you hear about something like a single cell organism inspiring a print. Probably never, but Rag & Bone did and came up with something cool.
For their new skinny in Amoeba, Rag & Bone got the print and did it all over like a style that rivals the popular leopard print, but with a Courtney Love sense. Just like leopard, the pair can be styled just as easily. Pair them with a graphic t shirt and a slouchy tank. It’s a fresh take on the print that we have all been seeing.
