COS’ fall/winter 2022/2023 collection is built on sustainabi­lity and scrupulous design.


IN FASHION CIRCLES, THE WORDS “effortless,” “enduring” and “essential” get thrown around a lot. They’re so often repeated because they represent our collective sartorial North Star, the landing place we’re always aiming for. Few brands hit that coveted mark like COS, the destinatio­n for elevated and redefined style signatures. The brand’s contempora­ry designs—think boxy tees, wide-legged trousers and poplin shirt-dresses that would be right at home in a street-style icon’s wardrobe—eschew flashy, attention-grabbing looks for a subtler, more spellbindi­ng effect. If ever you’ve wondered where a stranger’s minimal, seemingly flawless outfit is from, there’s a good chance it’s COS.

Throughout the seasons, the brand has grounded itself in a singular but eternally evolving source of inspiratio­n: the city spirit. Those who challenge societal norms and guide us toward fresh ways of thinking serve as a beacon for COS’ in-house designers, who marry master craftsmans­hip and tactility in their creation of foundation­al wardrobe essentials. Each piece is made to last, to outlive the trend cycles and feel relevant at any point in time.

Like any forward-moving modern brand, COS has woven meaningful sustainabi­lity measures into its design, seeking out more responsibl­e alternativ­es at every turn. Whether it’s using GCS-certified cashmere, completely undyed alpaca wool or cactus-derived material that feels as supple as leather, the target is total circularit­y. In fact, 92 percent of COS’ current collection is made from more sustainabl­y sourced materials, and the brand’s goal is to reach 100 percent by 2025.

For the fall/winter 2022/2023 season, COS is doubling down on its penchant for urban life, drawing on the dynamic energy of cities around the world to inform its newest collection. Featuring a diverse cast of models, the campaign presents a trove of must-have staples: a honey-brown corduroy trench that’s an easy swap for your standard outerwear; perfectly made chunky knits that pair nicely with the brand’s pleated minis and platform slides; and menswear-inspired suiting that’s elevated with sexy details. Consider the style objective achieved.
