This piece from the new collection exemplifies COS' commitment to craftsmanship. Striking a balance between a shirt and cardigan, it's expertly knitted from a sumptuous blend of cotton and mulberry silk using a ladder-stitch technique that adds intricate texture to the knit. It's shaped for a relaxed fit that makes layering easy and designed with a flat pointed collar, ribbed trims and contrasting tortoiseshell-effect buttons.
A brand whose aesthetic has been so influential that it’s hard to remember what went before. But when COS launched in 2007 against a backdrop of fast, trend-led fashion, its focus on minimal pieces at accessible prices was a breakthrough moment. With a focus on style over trend, it heralded a new era for interesting, modern, considered design and changed our wardrobes for the better, forever.
