Pure and modest, the white shirt has been a staple in the COS wardrobe for many years. This season, we explored silhouettes, fabrics and details of this essential piece, to create a capsule collection that offers a new classic for everyone’s wardrobe.

All our collections come to life in London. They are a close collaboration between our design team, pattern cutters and our in-house atelier. To reinvent something as humble as the white shirt, a whole new approach was applied.

Inside the Atelier

  • We started by reversing the design process. Details such as cuffs and collars came first, with the designers building each shirt on the body – piece by piece.

  • When the 3D model was ready, then came the sketching and the silhouettes were captured on paper.

  • As a final step, it was down to our team in the atelier to craft and tailor the pieces.

  • The attention to detail that came from this three-dimensional, hands-on approach shows on each garment.

  • There’s always something to discover – whether it’s a button fastening, a carefully placed drape detail or simply the feeling of the fabric against the body.
