about time

Looks like COS got it's arse into gear and has finally embraced technology with a brand spanking new site. I must say, I'm very impressed; with a video as jaw-droppingly beautiful as this (see below) to welcome you, the site is off to a promising start.


Whilst being very much in-keeping with the brand's clean cut and minimal aesthetic, the site also has blog-like ambiguously named sections dedicated to things like, well, "things". That's photographs by André Kertész and interior inspiration, in case you were wondering. The layout is also uniquely pleasing with all of the different sections laid on the home page, you are free to drag your mouse across the screen as a way of navigating.



The most important question, however, is yet to be answered, for there is still no sign of an online store. Sigh, we shall have to continue to wait for the day that we may order cashmere socks, cigarette pants or silky underwear and pretend to be Charlotte Gainsbourg. I have a feeling though, that we won't be waiting very long.

Yes, I've noticed another couple of posts too. If anything, it's a sign of what can be achieved for a brand simply by having an online presence.

Hopefully COS have learnt their lesson and an e-store will be just about the corner!

I'm not sure Cos will go down the internet route - its parent company H&M has resisted so far. They are more likely to expand their stores around the country.

I really hope they'll open an online store and more "real" shops!

Ooh, I'm not much of of a minimalist but this is just transcendent. I love that last dress that is half drapey, half not. Magnificent.

I love COS but none of their items seem to look very good on me, God knows how much time I've spent on holidays (we've no COS in Sweden.. tragic!) stuck in their dressing rooms.
