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.
