COS fall winter 2009


last week i popped by COS to have a look at their latest fall winter 2009 collection. i tried on the above blazer, and it is l00o00ve. the grey blazer is made from a stiff fabric, which is great as it provides shape and gives the wearer a good silhouette.


the blazer fitted perfectly. it comes with matching trousers too so i can make it into a formal suit. i can't fault the tailoring and finish, it's beautiful. the blazer retails for £195. i love it, but i thought the price is a bit steep so i put it back.


and then i tried on the varsity-like jacket, again it fitted so well. i think i am going back more often now, as their sizing is good for me. the jacket with leather sleeves and wool body retails for about £250.


the leather and wool jacket was also featured in their ad campaign/lookbook too.

COS is dangerous i tell you.

  1. Like this a lot 00o00. See, this is inspired design. Inspired by Balenciaga, I'd say, but still a distinct COS style.

    You have a a finely tuned valuometer, if you are able to walk away.

  4. i've got the hooded cape (last image) and it's totally amazing.

    the next think i'll buy from cos: the boots (first picture).

    i adore the jacket with the leather sleeves but it’s a bit too expensive i think.

  6. i bought the cape in small
    and it’s perfect.

    the boots cost about £150
    and that’s totally fair i think!

    i'll wait for sale too!
    but stop: there’s something
    like a private sale here
    in germany with 20% off
    everything in mid october.
    that could be an option.

    i will think about. ;)

  8. i wish i had a cos i always hear such good things about it. (also dont have an h&m either, but im not impressed w/ them)
    that varsity jacket is very nice. it's sleek enough that it doesnt become preppy.

  13. yeah sure i can say the jackets look great... and they do. but i am quite attracted to the rest of the outfit. the tucked in Nehru collar shirt, selvage jeans that fit perfectly, and the slim and sleek brown leather belt are so sexy! i want to comment on the shoes too but they are hard to make out... dark blue suede? whatever they are they look nice! esp. because they are pointy toed

  15. it’s the third time i could join
    that kind of private sale.

    the last event was sponsored
    by vogue. now it’s elle. i don’t
    if there’s something like that
    in uk?

    i tried the boots on today
    but they look totally different!
    no used look! no shiny leather!
    nothing special... :/
