Alongside this, legendary UK collective and advocates of self-expression, Sink The Pink share a playful Queen of Club’s design, and Spain’s festival of fun, Churros con Chocolate, recreates their iconic poster designs, which illustrate dress-up and their flamboyant guests. COS will donate 100% of the profits from sales of this collaboration to support Metro Manila Pride, a volunteer-managed organization dedicated to educating, equipping and empowering the Filipino LGBTQIA+ community, working towards a future without discrimination and prejudice. The COS Pride collection is available globally at cos.com and the COS Store Manila in SM Aura Premier this June.
