Just How Minimalist Can Cos Go?

cos 10th anniversary

You know how the simplest designs are usually the best? Cos expounds on that mantra for a capsule collection to mark its 10th year in the business which will be out on March 24. The 10 pieces it created for women, men and children sees the Swedish retailer employing a less-is-less approach to pattern-making and garment construction. Among the techniques employed is the use of Japanese square-cut proportions to create boxy shapes like a kimono-style coat. The brand also sticks to a non-wastage credo that cuts each garment from the full width of a fabric. The result: a much sleeker and linear silhouette.
