Even though the Netherlands are probably not recognized as a fashion capital, also here it’s possible to find some interesting labels. The denim industry is driving the market: the city has the highest concentration of denim brands in the world, and also Levi’s and Diesel have chosen Amsterdam as a location for their design studios.

G star raw

G-Star is well known internationally for quality denims. Born in 1989 it constantly collaborates with other companies thanks to their wide expertise. A label able to contribute to design at 360 degrees. Take a look the their latest furniture collection on youtube.

As G-Star also Scotch & Soda has always considered environment, animal welfare and safe working conditions a priority. Here, the page regarding their social responsibility.

Copa Football

Copa is an outsider of this list, being at the same time, one of my favorite brand for style and originality. The flagship shop, close to central station, is a kind of  temple of football. Founded in 1998 by a “football fan”, is now sold in over 20 countries and the shop is a must see for soccer romantics. 

Even though Copa is a smaller reality, they also keep attention of working condition and environment since their establishment. All products are made in Europe and on the website you can track quality and origin of the fabrics.
