On a trip to Barcelona this past September, a friend of mine kept pulling out great dress after a great dress, all seemingly wrinkle free and perfectly suited to sitting down to glasses of cava and plates of jamon and olives. Her secret? COS, the cult-fave of Europe.
Vancouver has had a petite COS boutique in Gastown since 2017, but as of this week, the store has launched a 5,000-square foot, two-floor space at Robson and Thurlow. It's big enough to house the entire collection now—and that includes its menswear line, and for the first time in Vancouver, kidswear. (Adorable gold dresses for the holidays, natch.) And as of Spring 2020, the collection will be made entirely from sustainably sourced cotton.
It's an architecturally beautiful space, too, with a modern, central floating staircase that leads up to the kids' clothes and menswear on the second floor.
I'm already planning my outfit for my next European adventure.
