About Us

COS, Collection Of Style, is for women and men who want modern, functional, considered design. Since our launch in 2007, we have opened stores worldwide, each one placed in a carefully considered location with a design concept that preserves buildings’ original features whilst creating a modern gallery space for our collection.

Always exploring our original concept of favouring style over fashion, we like timeless design that lives beyond the season. Merging traditional methods with new techniques and innovative fabrics, we work hard to create fashion pieces that look and feel at once classic and modern. We hope you enjoy the attention to detail shown in every garment and the wide breadth of inspiration that defines our collections.

At COS we understand that the success of our brand is due to the contribution made by our dedicated team. In return we seek to provide our colleagues with a supportive working environment that facilitates learning, development and individual growth. We believe that working in this way creates an honest, straightforward and open environment for everyone.

Whether based in one of our stores, support offices or at the head office in London everyone at COS works with the same set of shared values that aim to support, improve and inspire.
