COS | Simple COS, Collection Of Style, is for men and women who want high end design and good quality at an affordable price. They launced in 2007 with stores across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, each one placed in a carefully considered location with a design concept that preserves buildings’ original features whilst creating a modern gallery space for the collection. | Always exploring original concepts of favouring style over fashion, COS appreciates timeless design that lives beyond the season. Merging traditional methods with new techniques and innovative fabrics, to create modern, timeless pieces. |

The store concept is to produce a collection of luxurious menswear and womanswear. They offer high end, quality fabrics, finish and fit at an affordable price. |

Cos x Nendo Collaboration | 2014 One of the brand’s products, the white shirt, stared in an installation at Milan Salone. They took an unusual approach for installation’s design: rather than designing the shirts or their hanger racks, they created sculptural pieces that rely on the interplay of shirts and frames. The smartly ordered shirts are crisp, classic white until they fall inside the steel cube frames, at which point they take on colour as thought the space itself has dyed them. This simple yet effective framing strengthens viewers’ awareness of the space. |

‘Joyful serenity, craving transcendence,” and called her spring 2014 collection a ‘declaration of purity.’ | Jil Sander Spring/ Summer 14 Press release

I always have a sort of woman in mind when I design clothes. I like women cool, never over-decorated. That’s old fashioned. I like to see a woman’s intellect, her strength of personality. It doesn’t matter what age she is, but if she likes short skirts and high heels then perhaps she’s not for me. And I have to say you can’t please everybody.’ Jil Sander | The Guardian | 1996
