COS’ Atelier is an ode to craftsmanship and fine fabrics

COS unveiled its latest Atelier collection, marking the third season of the capsule since debuting at New York Fashion Week last year. Designed at the brand’s London in-house atelier, the collection embodies the essence of its design philosophy, with a strong focus on craftsmanship, fit, and considered fabric choices.

The fabulous Autumn Winter 2023 collection is inspired by organic prints often seen within nature. There are rich brown hues paired with navy blue and soft neutrals, while accents of brushed metallics take the looks seamlessly from day to evening. The materials chosen offer an effortless sense of fluidity, which complements the carefully tailored structure throughout the collection. Dramatic maxi-length knitted dresses are presented alongside a textured hand-crocheted set, which sees a cocooned vest paired with a mini skirt, and matching knitted hood, all crafted from Responsible Mohair Standard mohair and wool.

For the collection, COS has applied traditional tailoring techniques and reworked them to challenge and update the fit of classic wardrobe staples, creating modern silhouettes in the process. Womenswear presents an open-back blazer constructed from Responsible Wool Standard Wool, which is designed to showcase a draped cowl back halterneck waistcoat in silk. Menswear, on the other hand, sees classically tailored suits reimagined in soft leather and finished with contemporary raw edges.

Women also get leather elements in the form of structured bags that complement a ready-to-wear coat, made from left-over material from the production of other garments, creating a unique silhouette with organic movement. The collection also features sterling silver architectural accessories, with metal hardware juxtaposing the soft leather of the collection’s bags. Silver and recycled brass spheres feature across belts, leather sandals, and jewellery, including a set of statement ornamental brooches.

The COS Atelier collection is available in selected stores and online. It features in COS’ New York Fashion Week show alongside COS’ Autumn Winter 2023 ready-to-wear collection. Find out more here.
