In a captivating return to New York Fashion Week, COS presented its Fall/Winter 2023 collection.
Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Hudson River at sunset, the Manhattan Classic Car Club served as the stage for this exceptional showcase.
The runway itself was a work of art, with a rich, deep brown surface creating a striking contrast against metallic sculptural forms that exuded an iridescent glow, capturing the essence of the evening light.
At its core, this collection encapsulates the timeless essence of COS, emphasizing uncompromising quality and versatility from day to evening. The designers explored an exciting territory of functional yet innovative tailoring, reinventing classic cuts from the inside out.
Trouser suits were refined to perfection, waistcoats reimagined, and confidently structured shoulders juxtaposed with fluid silk maxi-lengths, creating bold visual statements and elongated silhouettes.
One of the highlights of the collection was the head-to-toe knitwear ensembles, which featured pared-back styles adorned with hoods, oversized fringed scarves, and innovative hybrids that seamlessly merged utilitarian and aesthetic elements. The addition of fringing on capes and dresses, as well as neck scarf detailing on shirts, effortlessly elevated these pieces from daywear to evening elegance.
Drawing inspiration from nature, the color palette for this season incorporated soothing neutral tones that complemented rich earthy browns, all adorned with bespoke prints. Matte textures artfully met metallic accents, creating a captivating interplay of materials and shine.
