Since 2007, Swedish brand COS has grown to become a favourite among lovers of modern quality fashion. There’s also an unspoken cool factor to wearing COS that’s due to the brand’s alignment with the art and design world. Aside from creating fashion that’s easy to wear, the brand has had a continued presence at Salone del Mobile since 2012 (this year, COS is teaming up with Studio Swine) as well as collaborations with design-centric collectives like HAY and Agnes Martin.
In celebration of its 10th anniversary, COS has created a 10-piece capsule collection for women, children and men. Each garment is constructed with a keen focus on minimising fabric wastage. This means rethinking the way patterns are cut and creating designs that maximise the use of each fabric. The result is a collection made up of boxy silhouettes and clean lines in that has a connection to Japanese art, with a colour palette of sand and white.
“As we look to the future we will continue to focus on the efficient use of fabrics and forward-thinking techniques,” expressed creative director Karin Gustafsson.
For us guys, the pieces include a boxy top with a square-cut neckline in crisp white cotton poplin, elasticated shorts in technical polyester that cuts right at the knee, and a zipped jacket that gives the illusion of a layered piece.
The COS 10th anniversary capsule collection will be available online and in stores on 24 March 2017.
