COS is Coming!

I was so excited hear the news that COS is coming to the US and opening a retail store in New York this Spring. When people ask me what store I miss the most from living in France the answer is hands down COS. It’s a little hard to explain their clothes because it doesn’t always translate well in photos (or on a blog.) COS is a Swedish clothing brand (owned by H&M) that is all over Europe and can best be described as “Sophisticated Swedish Design” it is known for it’s structural designs and really great fabrics. It’s the kind of store where you have to try everything on because it may look boring or strange on the rack but when you put it on it has a cool asymmetrical cut or an interesting sleeve. I have a couple COS dresses and whenever I wear them I always get people asking where I got them. They are my go-to black dresses for events because they are comfortable, look cool and are different without calling a ton of attention to themselves. The other thing I should mention is that the fabrics are really good quality, I’ve been really impressed with how they feel and wear. The pricing is J.Crew-ish which for the design and quality ends up feeling like a steal. I’m thrilled I only have to go as far as New York to fill my suitcase instead of all the way to Europe. Fingers crossed they will also start shipping to the US too. I guess I won’t be able to say nonchalantly anymore, “Oh this ol’ thing…I got it when I was in Paris.”

Cos is coming to America!

ps: their pajama/casual line is amazing as is their kids line and Paul’s favorite slim-cut suit is from there too.

    I’m so excited COS is coming to the US! Their simple sophistication is something I think can be really hard to find stateside, and while I agree its fun to say I got a dress in paris or london, I’m happy to give up that little thrill if it means I can shop there more often.

    I love COS!! Funnily enough in Madrid it is a bit of a posh granny store ‘cos it’s located in the area were fancy rich people shop. So I am probably the youngest and most “bohemian” person who goes there. 😀

    What fantastic news!! I was just in the middle of writing a blog post about my recent trip to France and mentioned how much I love COS and wish they shipped to the US, or had stores here. Looks like my wish is coming true! I have collected a few pieces over the years and I expect to be wearing them for years to come.

    COS is truly my favourite shop ever. The majority of my wardrobe comes from there – purchased online, in London, The Hague, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin, Glasgow, Paris…….

    True that some of their designs look a little quirky on the hangar or on the website but it is always worth trying them on as they often look so different on (and better). I have the black knot dress, new for my winter wardrobe….

    I am sure New Yorkers will love it. But don’t wait till Spring – there is a pop up store in Opening Ceremony at 35 Howard Street for a month – check out

    I think I can see what you mean. Being mono-colored designs there isn’t a whole lot to look at while they’re hanging on the rack, but I can see how the way they fit would make for a great look. Wonder if I can take a little road trip soon…
