The unmistakable COS qualities and approach to design is clean cut geometric and minimalistic, from the patterns to the paper draping and 3D work. The SS18 collection is no exception, and brings on new proportions and details that are executed in a precise way. An influence of time is apparent in the work methods and reinvented modern pieces, which have a futuristic tone and quiet drama as well. The result is three-piece tailoring, draped and voluminous pieces, and silhouettes collapsing on the body. Classics have been revisited in surprising materials, and details are sometimes carefully misplaced. The designs are in cottons in a range of forms, textured, coated, crisp and crumpled, and knits are crafted from silks, chunky paper yarn and summer wools. The collection is overall a play on volume and contrasting proportions, and is completed with a natural, refined color palette.
