Casual Elegance with COS Spring/Summer ’16

We love COS for their casual take on tailoring, their striking silhouettes and effortless chic that shines through each collection.

The Spring/Summer 2016 collection is no different.

With standard draping, neat folds and subtle, comfortable fabrics, the theme for the new season collection is that of reinvention, of craftsmanship.

From the simplicity of a white belted boilersuit to the softness of an unstructured blazer in blush, its work wear at its best and perfect for the high temperatures of the Middle East.

Each and every garment has been re-thought, with certain items taking inspiration from the beauty of the surrounding landscape. The open-back silk dress in sandstone takes its form from the organic sand dunes seen in Renate Aller’s photographs resulting in a garment that is not only beautifully structured by also exuding a sense of calmness.

Denim reigns supreme but in a classy, understated way. Celebrated for its functionality, from the simplicity of a raw denim sleeveless all-in-one, to the subversion of a fly detail zip top paired with utility jeans, it is rugged feminine dressing at its best.

Famed for their drapes and folding, these still take pride of place with effortless precision shown through short origami sleeves and the subtle draping of a linen skirts falling in near symmetrical folds. The colour palette is that of neutrals from blasted sand to cold stone.

For men, the collection is little different. Tailoring takes on a new construction with unlined wool blazers and fresh silhouettes on outerwear. Denim still features heavily with not only jeans and blazers, but also oversized boat neck jerseys in denim twill.

The entire collection, both men and women is so simple yet astonishingly beautiful. It allows for the type of thrown-together dressing that everyone desires to achieve and sees us transition into the warmth of the new season perfectly.
