Editor’s Notes: This week COS gives us a look at a new collection of redefined classics made for SS20. The assortment of men’s and women’s styles features statement pieces in foiled high-twist fabric merged with cotton, as all cotton used in the collection is sustainably sourced. Inspired by geometric surfaces and aerial landscapes, COS SS20 showcases a color palette consisting of soft neutrals and light greys, contrasted with electric cyan, bold red, mustard yellow, and indigo blue.
Here, COS focuses on new masculinity through a more feminine approach to menswear styles, which results in more playful silhouettes. Draping is applied to a double-breasted blazer and shirt, while double-faced cottons create the ultimate layering piece in the form of a quilted jacket. A trench and cotton poplin shirt then note hidden placket detailing, as the tailored garments are joined by coated denim offerings.
The SS20 women’s assortment finds slim fits juxtaposed with relaxed styles. The season’s dresses welcome double layering and hidden pockets, while a fluid dress stands out due to its effortless draping. COS also reinvents classic three-piece tailoring, with raw-edge techniques being used on a sleeveless blazer, a tailored boxer short, and straight leg trousers made from spun silk.
