COS opens first PHL store at AM Aura

COS, the London-based fashion brand, has opened its first store in the Philippines at the Upper Ground Floor of SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The 380 sq.m. store space is designed with the brand’s minimalist aesthetics and sustainability in mind. The textured cladding material extending across the staggered walls are constructed of “Really,” an engineered material developed using upcycled textiles such as end-of-life cotton and wool. Housing both Women’s and Men’s collections, the store debuts with the Summer 2021 collection, featuring a series of wardrobe icons inspired by the renewal of the seasons and the brand’s optimism for the future. Embracing warmer weather, pieces remain versatile and timeless. Materials such as linen and hemp were chosen for their durability, whilst appearing weightless, fostering movement and draping. Repurposed materials are adopted throughout, with recycled nylon utilized in swimwear. To celebrate the opening of the COS SM Aura Premier store, a limited-edition repurposed-cotton tote bag will be given along with all purchases over P10,000 net, while stocks last.

BOSS Fall/Winter collection out

BOSS captures the spirit of Generation Next in a new collection that mixes statement styles and casual silhouettes with ease. Sporty designs are combined with tailored pieces — a baseball jacket with suit pants for him; slouchy track pants with a tailored coat for her. The iconic BOSS suit is transformed from purely professional outfit to everyday fashion staple, reworked in more casual, adaptable iterations for the way we live now. The entire collection is designed to be mixed and matched by the individual wearer, and is conceived as an invitation to play with easy, modern style, where rules are made to be broken. The base palette of black, cream, and camel is brought to life by the addition of vivid orange, red ochre, navy, tourmaline, and mineral blue. The timeless aesthetic of baseball, referenced in previous collections, is once again evident, with leather baseball bags, and sporty bomber jackets in wool-cashmere and leather. Collegiate styles for him and for her are embellished with contrast chenille patches, handmade in Germany. A tonal check is made new with the addition of striking embroidery, while the same check pattern is also combined with iconic stripe motifs and sporty shapes. Unisex crossbody bags add contemporary appeal to the accessories collection. In the Philippines, BOSS is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 5, Shangri-La East Wing, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Makati, City of Dreams, 158 Designer’s Blvd. Newport Mall and Rustan’s Cebu.
