In light of COS’ spring collection that will deliver around this February, the H&M sister brand releases fully styled looks from the range for men and women. Largely characterized by a color palette of sandstone, white and blush, the lineup exudes a sense of casual ease that is relaxing and organic.

The technical construction of the womenswear is almost on the avant-garde level of Rei Kawakubo’s reconstructed deconstruction for Comme des Garcons. A wrap skirt is made by reinterpreting a trench coat, resulting in an asymmetrical A-line number presented here with equally avant-garde tops and outerwear (I will absolutely spend money on the lattice dress on slide 11).

For the menswear, tailoring is key (as always) but the clothing’s precise cuts also manage to look and feel effortless. All of the products seem to stay within the same realm as COS’ Fall/Winter 2015 menswear, save for raw denim additions that call for more dressed-down functionality.

See the looks above and stay tuned on their release here.
