Scotch & Soda announces new footwear licensee
The Amsterdam-based fashion brand has signed a worldwide licensing deal with Bos Group International for the design, production and distribution of the brand’s footwear collections
The also Netherlands-based footwear manufacturer will first oversee the wholesale deliveries for Scotch & Soda's spring 2023 collections, and, from then, it will carry on developing and selling the subsequent seasonal footwear collections for men, women and children worldwide. In the footwear business since 1982, Bos International Group is taking over the Scotch & Soda footwear licensing operations following the termination of the trademark license agreement with HS Footwear (part of the German-based Hamm Group), the brand's previous licensing partner. Peter Frericks will assume the position of head of global sales and brand manager for Scotch & Soda at Bos Group Footwear B.V.

"We are happy to announce our license partnership with Bos Group International. With their extensive experience in footwear design, production and distribution, they will be a valuable partner in our strategy to strengthen our core markets, all while expanding in new promising regions of the world for the category", commented Frederick Lukoff, Chief Executive at Scotch & Soda. "We are looking forward to developing a close collaboration with them, tailored to our brand's values inspired by the free spirit of Amsterdam", he added. The collections are expected to feature details that provide a sense of freedom and playfulness that target both the classic and trendy customers, said WWD.
"As a Dutch-based family company, we are proud to become a member of the Scotch & Soda family. Scotch & Soda is a fantastic brand and will support our national and international growth ambition. We are looking forward to making this a very successful and long-term partnership", added Ruben Bos, director of Bos Group International.
