As the cooler weather draws closer, one thing we can look forward to is a whole new collection from COS. One of our all time favourite brands has hit the mark yet again with this effortless, elegant and simultaneously edgy collection. While we were lucky enough to preview the collection in person a few months ago, it’s not set to hit the shelves until September but we’ve brought you a preview of what to expect for AW17 below.

The collection explores two key directions this season: new proportions and soft tailoring inspired by architectural lines and the experimentation of geometric drapes and rich textures. A new take on tailoring is at the heart of this collection as garments are reimagined with a modern twist; with menswear-inspired voluminous slacks and oversized A-line skirts with raw edging.

Taking its inspiration from the lines of architecture and industrial references, the collection experiments with the proportion of silhouettes and details, featuring exaggerated lapels, cuffs and vents, sharp pleats inspired by press folds and the use of geometric shapes.

Bold forms are complemented by innovative and technical materials inspired by experimental art and design. Fabrics are clean and compact, whilst draped and cut in interesting ways.

The AW17 collection will be available in-store and online from the beginning of September.
