A First Look At Cos’s AW18 Collection

POPS OF NEON YELLOW make COS’s AW18 collection shine … 


It was a fitting morning to view Cos’s AW18 collection. As the days go by and we inch our way slowly towards the summer months, the weather outside spells nothing but autumn with drizzly showers and grey skies. But the clothes that awaited us inside a beautifully converted Victorian red-bricked home (used as the setting for today’s showcase) were exactly what we needed to see.

Autumnal shades of moss green and brown inspired by nature form the basis of the collection which is punctuated with pops of neon yellow and soft lilac.


A colder palette comes through in shades of grey, silver and a deep petrol blue all perfectly complementary when layered together, as much of the collection is designed to do.

As is often the case with Cos, the collection comes to life when it is worn together, with layer after layer adding depth and structure to the outfits. New silhouettes for this season include exaggerated elbows on knitted jumpers and dresses, and floor-skimming A-line skirts and dresses in heavy wool fabrics. Waists on coats and dresses are nipped in this season, moving away from the oversized proportions we are so often used to seeing from Cos.


Stand-out pieces include a buttery soft grey leather coat and a lightly padded thermo-reactive jacket from the men’s collection that changes colour from grey to white when in the heat, while a cube-shaped leather bag also caught our eye.

Cos’s AW18 collection will arrive in stores from August.
