First Look: COS SS18 Menswear

Minimalist design at its best.

BY EDITORS | Feb 23, 2018 | Fashion

Taking inspirations from the past, present and the imagined future, this season, COS explores organic shapes and natural materials. From the pattern cutting, to the paper draping and 3D work, new proportions and details are executed in very clean and precise methods. 

In terms of fabrics, cottons are being treated in different forms such as textured, coated, crisp, crumpled; whilst knits of various weights are crafted from barely there silks chunky paper yarns and starched summer wools.

Colours, as you'd expect from COS, are completed with a natural, refined palette which move from purest white through to organic papery and wood - inspired tones to summer browns combined with powdery accents of ochre, leaf green, mint, navy, petrol and red clay. Subtle but stylish, definitely not for peacock-ing
