COS clothing for women: minimalism and details.
The epitome of pared-back design and contemporary cuts, COS is part of a new concept in fashion offering ready-to-wear versions of high-end models. Half way between a big chain and a premium label, this English brand proposes modern, stylish and above all timeless clothes for women.
A brand inspired by the world of design.
Founded in London in 2007, the label COS, which stands for "Collection of Styles", is none other than H&M's little sister, the difference between them being that COS is positioned more high-end, closer to premium labels but with levels of pricing that are kept within affordable limits. Its secret ingredient? An aesthetic with pure lines and architectural cuts, but also a sense of ethics, being one of those socially responsible brands who insist that its suppliers comply with employment rights and who use only fake fur and leather from animals destined for the food chain.
Behind the label, whose offices are still based in London today, are Karin Gustaffson and Martin Andersson, a dynamic duo who, despite the English inspiration, draw their ideas from Scandinavian design. Thought up by a team of Swedish designers, all the brand's pieces have one thing in common: a look that is timeless and in keeping with the trends of the moment. From flowing dresses, trench coats and outsized blouses, COS women's clothes mirror an understated, meticulous universe that everyone can relate to, however old they are and whatever their style of dress.
Chic cuts and prestigious fabrics.
Dresses, pullovers, coats, trench coats, tops, shirts, trousers, etc. In a world of casual chic, COS proposes a range of ready-to-wear adapted to all styles and all body-types. Basic, but elegant cuts, neutral mono colours, refined fabrics, etc. that is how the clothing collections for women designed by COS could be summed up. In plain and pastel shades, occasionally embellished with delicate details, each piece presents an impeccable finish and reveals a modern silhouette and a well-designed look, which is casual to the last. Having met with almost instantaneous success when it was launched, the Swedish-inspired English brand knows how to renew itself, in accordance with fashion codes, remaining loyal to the meticulousness and pared-back design it has made its own. Among the COS basics that have won women over globally, we will remember:
