Cos Stores


Do you know Cos Stores? That’s “Collection of Style” and it’s a division of H&M. Yes indeed, it’s the upscale, more boutique line of the famous Swedish fashion emporium.

The Beverly Hills store just opened in October and they just (as in November) opened one in New York, in Soho.

I came across their Kensington, London store on my last day in England.

I guess it was love at first sight. The clothes have clean lines and are all solid colors. Nothing fussy or ditsy about them. And, I would say, they are appropriate for any age. Now, I was alone when I went in and not accompanied by my number one guide, guru, shopping pal, fan and advisor aka daughter! I was on my own and forced to give myself my own feedback.

This is what I ended up with: a very simple, all cotton, top. (Remember, this was back in September when we still had weeks of warm weather here.)  It came in white and yellow. Well, the daffodil yellow was perfect and I knew the next weekend I had a party back home and this would be just the thing.
