The Artist Within

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

To mark the up­com­ing Agnes Martin ret­ro­spec­tive at the Guggen­heim Mu­seum, COS cre­ated a cap­sule col­lec­tion di­rectly in­spired by the painter—from the way Martin dressed in her work­shop to the di­rec­tion of her brush strokes. “One as­pect that in­ter­ests me about Martin’s work is her lay­er­ing of paints that cre­ates in­ter­est­ing tex­tures and com­plex­i­ties,” says Karin Gustafs­son, cre­ative di­rec­tor for COS. These com­plex­i­ties and ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties can be seen in the grid pat­tern of cash­mere sweaters and im­per­fect hand-stitched stripes on T-shirts. (From $115, cos­stores.com)
