COS is a fashion brand for women and men who want timeless, modern, functional and considered design. Offering reinvented classics and wardrobe essentials, we create pieces that are made to last beyond the season. Since launching in 2007 we have opened stores in over 40 countries worldwide, all in carefully considered locations, applying a design concept that preserves the buildings’ original features whilst creating a modern, welcoming space.
For us, art and design are the source of inspiration behind everything. Influences from the worlds of architecture, photography, textiles and ceramics permeate our collection. They filter down through to the visual concepts of our stores, the art direction of our campaigns and the content on cosstores.com.
A modern, functional and considered approach is our design philosophy. We choose longevity over passing trends. Our atelier values craftsmanship, putting this first and foremost. Every piece we create is timeless and made to last. From the mood behind a collection to the subtle construction of a cuff, these creative details are part of what gives our understated garments integrity. Style comes with substance, form follows function.
Step inside one of our stores and you’ll find a calm, modern space informed by a sense of minimalism. Our stores draw on the refreshing simplicity of contemporary art galleries to create an inspiring place to shop and to work. When opening a new store, we retain and restore as much of the original features as possible, leading to an eclectic mix of historical architectural influences that combine with our own aesthetic.
Over the last 10 years we have carefully built a culture where our people are supported, inspired and encouraged to be the best they can. Our brand is creative, forward thinking and modern.
We set the bar high at COS, we are committed to recruiting great people and offer a transparent and open environment where talent is recognised and valued. We believe that a diverse workforce plays a meaningful role in the success of COS. We celebrate individual differences and appreciate the contribution that all COS colleagues make.
We believe that learning and development goes hand in hand with being happy and engaged. If you are looking for progression, we will encourage you to take ownership of your career and help you to achieve your goals. As well as tailored training programs, annual appraisals and regular feedback, you’ll also have access to our custom online learning portal with hundreds of e-books, podcasts and video seminars.
