I’m a little embarrassed that up until a few weeks ago I had no idea was COS was. (#StylistFail) Hopefully, with this post I’ll get a little redemption as my eye for new retailers and brands has yet to fail me! So, back to COS, short for “Collection of Style”… have you guys ever shopped this store/brand? It’s H&M’s grown-up, classier and more sophisticated older sister. Consider it a Scandinavian mash up between Celine and Helmut Lang- 2 of my all time favorites by the way, except at a ZARA price point. For years, COS has been European fashionista’s secret style weapon! It was only a few months back that COS finally made e-commerce available to the US and now it’s working on expanding its brick and mortar storefronts in major US cities- NY, LA, etc. Get ready.
I’ve already scoured their website and found so many great pieces that I’m dying to get in my closet this winter… MUST. CONTROL. MYSELF. Here are some of my favorites… but hurry, some of these popular styles sell out QUICKLY!
What do YOU think about COS? Is this a retailer you’ll be visiting?
