The layers of COS

Introducing our Autumn Winter 2018 menswear: a collection informed by soft tailoring, rich textures and, most importantly, inventive layering.

We asked five friends of COS to explore this concept. To start with, what is ‘layering’? Does it only apply to clothes...? With an open brief in mind, our group made up of designers, creative directors and a chef used a range of mediums to convey what layering means to them. Some turned to the garments, while others chose more abstract routes.
