COS Opens In Melbourne

Ready, steady, shop.

Scandinavian department store and relative of H&M, COS (Collection of Style), opens its Melbourne store today — their first in the Southern Hemisphere. They threw an intimate dinner last night at Arc One Gallery with managing director Marie Honda to celebrate. It was sick.

The store's currently stocking its SS14 collection, which was largely inspired by the ocean and features lots of light, transpersonal pieces (perfect for the Australian climate FYI). They're big on taking wardrobe staples to rad, unexpected places. Case in point — their lush white men's shirt that resembles a bomber jacket and can be worn in a bunch of ways. Yes!

Stay tuned for our interview with Marie Honda and find COS' Melbourne store at The Strand on Little Bourke Street, near H&M.
