COS clothing launched in 2007 as part of the H&M Group. It is the fashion brand for women and men who want modern, functional and considered design. COS creates pieces that are made to last beyond the season, offering essentials for the modern wardrobe, underpinned by timeless craftmanship. The mantra: buy better, keep forever drives everything created.
In the Fall of 2019, COS partnered with The Renewal Workshop to launch a new collection, a line of restored clothes sourced from their supply chain, or returned clothes by shoppers. The Restore Collection was first available on September 4, 2019in select stores—Berlin, Stockholm and Utrecht.
By renewing already existing garments, COS and The Renewal Workshop extend the lifespan of products and keep quality products in use longer. This collection offers COS the opportunity to work toward their sustainability commitment and vision of becoming fully circular.
The Restore Collection launched on February 4 in select US stores—New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC with a limited number of pieces, so it’s expected to sell out within the next couple of weeks.
To celebrate this launch, COS hosted an event this week in Los Angeles which was an intimate discussion with COS’ Head of Sustainability Nopor Stuart, The Renewal Workshop’s Co-Founder Nicole Bassett and Digital Influencer Jenny One, moderated by Who What Wear’s Kat Collings.
The Renewal Workshop is excited about the continued partnership with COS and the success of the Restore Collection.
