Intricacies of drapes and folds made effortless, the specifics of craftsmanship and a sense of re-evaluating the familiar are key themes COS tell us for their spring/ summer 2016 collection.

We see tailoring with unlined blazers in wool pique and matching trousers designed with legs cut from one piece of fabric. Car coats are finished at the hip either in compact cotton twill, or in smoked plastic with authentic welded seams. As ever, denim is present with a reduced denim blazer and an oversized boat neck jersey in denim twill.

There are hand-drawn stripe prints on a city coat and also jacquard on a top with one-piece sleeves. As well as horizontal stripes with hand-drawn vertical lines used on a flat colour cotton crepe shirt. Soft drape is found in square cut tops and shirts which fall loose on the body, worn with back and front double pleated trousers.

Accessories include a squared toe sandal in raw cut black leather and leather sneakers with a Velcro tab fastening. And on trend right now there is a denim-coloured canvas backpack featuring a black leather trim. To conclude we enjoyed the look of a stone-coloured wool scarf which comes in a hand-drawn square print.
