The Next Generation

With a limited edition cover by Matthew Barney

Modern Classic

A champion of simplicity and subtlety the white shirt is central to the COS fashion ethos. Now it has been woven into a new installation: a collaboration with design studio nendo, at Salone del Mobile in Milan. To celebrate, Wallpaper* has commissioned three short films…

COS returned to Milan this year with an exclusively commissioned installation by Japanese design studio nendo. The third and final part in our COS x nendo series explores the artistic installation itself. Inspired by the simple elegance of the COS white shirt, the film shows the clean lines of the presentation and a carefully curated range of products which share the white shirt aesthetic. The film takes a unique look at the COS x nendo creation and reflects how the hard lines, fluid movement and minimal structure of the composition echo the simple elegance of the white COS shirt.
