COS AW17 Accessories

The collection explores two key directions this season: new proportions and soft tailoring inspired by architectural lines and the experimentation of geometric drapes and rich textures – offering a new take on classic pieces.

Women

Accessories are inventive and forward-thinking: deep red square toed lace-up shoes with a geometric heel take centre stage alongside a structured leather shoulder bag and belt with exaggerated buckle – in the same distinctive red hue.

Men

At the heart of men’s accessories are geometric shapes – interpreted as a polished black leather square toe lace-up, structured leather tote bag and in other guises as an outdoor accessory.

The nod to architecture is referenced in the collection’s industrial palette of slate blue, charcoal grey, midnight green and cream. The tones are offset by a strong presence of red, inspired by the Italian architecture studio Pedevilla’s use of red pigmented concrete at a Tyrolean fire station. Outfits are styled together with tonal colour blocking and dark shades that create undefined border lines.
