Materials from COS dresses


The purchase of silk is very expensive, which is especially noticeable in the price of a dress. The silk consists of the spun yarns of the silkworm. Compared to cotton, silk is very elastic and is very tear resistant. However, you should note that the silk can only be washed at a maximum of 30 degrees. Since silk is considered to be very noble, a dress of this material is particularly suitable for special occasions.


Cotton is a natural fiber and is extracted from the cotton plant, which belongs to the mallow plants and grows exclusively in tropical and subtropical areas. Cotton is rather low elastic and wrinkles therefore very light, which is why inorganic fibers such as elastane are usually added to achieve a higher elasticity. Most dresses from COS include cotton dresses with a silky sheen, which is achieved by finishing the fabric. Cotton dresses are similarly expensive as silk dresses, since the production and procurement of natural materials is more expensive than that of chemical fabrics.


Polyester is made from petroleum and belongs to the group of synthetic materials. Polyesters can be added with various materials to give all possible properties. Since polyester is produced from petroleum, it is often criticized by some environmentalists. COS, however, often uses recycled polyester to produce more sustainably. The simpler and cheaper production means that clothes made of polyester and also other chemical fibers are priced under cotton and silk. Often, the above-mentioned materials are also mixed with synthetic fibers in order, for example, to achieve more elasticity or other desired properties of the fabric.


Typical of COS is the reduction to the essential, that is little frills and little pattern, the dress itself should be the focus. Despite this minimalist style, almost every gown shows a small ornamental detail, such as a belt, an extraordinary cut, and an ornamental seam. The label uses only high-quality materials and attaches importance to environmentally-friendly and efficient production, but is affordable despite COS. “The elegant big sister of the fashion company H & M convinces with minimalistic elegance and high-quality materials. Especially for the shopping of different essentials and puristic business fashion, the label is ideally suited for Scandinavian elegance and trend-setting. “COS is not for nothing called the grand-elegant sister of H & M, which makes the label fashionable for everyone, but promises nevertheless good quality and fit. On the occasion of the 10th birthday of the label, this year appeared as a collection which precisely embodies the philosophy of COS. “The collection for women, children and men is intended to show the brand’s commitment to innovation and craftsmanship.” Focusing on creative pattern-cutting and the use of material, this ten-piece collection for women, men and children explores a modern approach to timeless design , Through close co – operation between the designers and the direct cut directors, garments were created, whose items are designed to fit together like a puzzle so that only minimal material is wasted. The collection also includes a cream white dress that has been trimmed from four equal rectangles to create an edgy silhouette and not to produce any superfluous garbage. This limited edition is not only internally oriented to minimalism, but also embodies this outward, the clothes live from the cut and the fit and thus show minimalism in its purest form.
