Notes on Style and Fashion

From H&M comes COS

Posted on: September 16, 2007

COS, Collection of Style, is the newer line available through H&M, the bastion of inexpensive trends. The first COS store opened this past spring in March. What they offer are classic staples that one could use as companion pieces to the more trendy wares that H&M produces.

Saturday began London Fashion week, and COS showed its collection for Spring 2008 at the Royal Academy. The pieces, which while still affordable, have a higher price tag than the clothes at H&M. For the fashionista who has to follow a more conservative dress code in her office, I would suggest COS clothing with a bit more flashy accessories (accessories that won’t have the boss raising her eyebrows in disgust, of course). Hey, even if the concern isn’t about a dress code, still go ahead with the bold accessories. It’s fun!

la fashionista has had an interest in fashion and style since childhood when she first saw her mother dress in the various fashion of the 80s. Her mother was also a great seamstress, which was a definite influence on la fashionista's foray into fashion. Sadly, her mother's sewing talent did not get passed on to la fashionista.

But that doesn't mean that she doesn't still love talking about fashion. Because she does!
