The balance between calm and drama, and contrast between cloth that’s either draped or energised with functionality, is at the heart of COS for Autumn / Winter 2015. The collection’s key inspiration is Japan. You can keenly observe how Japan’s influence was neatly weaved into every piece. Whether it is the opportunity a piece gives you to be able to layer it with other items, or simply the fabric itself, you can easily tell that it’s inspiration comes from the east. Here are some of my favourite pieces.
