COS, a London-based fashion brand known for its arts-inspired modern and timeless designs, announced its upcoming arrival in the Philippines.
The brand, one of the labels under the H&M group, is scheduled to open its first store in an unspecified location yet in Metro Manila in spring 2021, which, if based on London’s seasons, is anytime from March to May.
“Opening in the Philippines is an exciting step for the COS brand. We have been hoping to enter the market for some time and I think our new Manila store is a great place to start,” COS Asia Pacific managing director Christoffer Sellin said in a statement.
The soon-to-open COS outlet will reflect the brand’s design sensibilities—which are geared toward innovation and enduring style, thus the sleek, understated, and classic designs—while incorporating values on sustainability.
The brand takes pride in its strides made toward becoming a sustainable fashion label with its pieces made from sustainably sourced fibers and recycled materials.
The new PH location will debut COS’ spring/summer 2021 collection which consists of sustainably sourced materials, jewellery crafted from recycled yoghurt pots, and zero-waste seamless knitwear sets, “with each piece designed to take the wearer beyond the season.”
Since opening its first store on Regent Street in 2007, COS, as of Nov. 30 last year, has 291 outlets around the world.
“I’m excited to see how new customers will engage with our brand and collections,” enthused Sellin.
