Mondottica International and Scotch & Soda announce new eyewear licence agreement.
February 7th, 2019 – Mondottica International and Scotch & Soda proudly announce the
signing of a licence agreement for the design, production and distribution of the Scotch &
Soda eyewear collections.
Founded in 1985 Scotch & Soda is a world-inspired, Amsterdam-curated brand driven by a
team of curious treasure hunters. Each season the brand’s collections begin with the same
intriguing narrative, resulting in a web of beautiful ideas – ready to share, and to wear. The
‘world’ Scotch & Soda pour in to their clothes means there is always a story drawing you in, a
little wonder pulling you ever closer making the story breathe and their audience fall in love
with the their creations.
Inspired by this curious and irreverent approach to fashion, the eyewear ranges will follow
suit, perfectly in sync with the collections developed in the brand’s canal-side design studio-
a mainline for men (Scotch), women (Maison), boys (Shrunk) and girls (R’Belle), as well as a
denim collection, Amsterdam Blauw.
Commenting on the new licence agreement, Mondottica’s Founder and CEO Michael Jardine
said: “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with such a truly distinctive fashion and
lifestyle brand. Scotch & Soda has an eclectic and well considered approach to design which
aligns closely with our way of developing unique eyewear collections”.
Scotch & Soda’s Creative Director, Marlou van Engelen about the new partnership: "Being
able to accessorize with Scotch & Soda eyewear has been a wish for a long time. We're happy
we were able to find a partner who is as dedicated to material research, custom colours and
surprising details as we are. After a sneak peek of our first designs, I know they're going to be
a great complement or contrast to our looks."
The agreement, for both men’s and women’s sunglasses and ophthalmic eyewear, will run
through 2024. The first Scotch & Soda eyewear range by Mondottica will be available from
Spring-Summer 2020 and will be distributed through opticians globally. The sunglass range
