opening of COS in Montreal by blogger mademoiselle jules

I’m always surprised at how many people haven’t heard about this amazing Swedish brand! Launched in 2007, COS offers collections for men & women, known for their modern and functional styles, often inspired by design and architecture. Though I’m a little late, I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the opening of COS in the heart of downtown Montreal.

The design of the boutique is simple, yet elegant – just like the clothes that fill up the space. Natural, minimalist elements match the neutral palettes and silhouettes that make up the fall/winter collection. It’s the ultimate relaxed atmosphere to shop wardrobe essentials that you’ll be wearing for seasons to come. Anticipating the launch of the store all summer, I went on a total shopping frenzy on the night of the opening!

COS is renowned for reinventing the classics using high-end fabrics and cutting edge techniques making it a favorite of mine for years. I fell in love with their holiday collection, full of must-have cashmere, wool, and leather pieces, as well as fun and flirty metallic frocks and accessories. 

With all the upcoming holiday events, it’s the perfect spot to find last minute outfits for lounging with relatives or dancing into the New Year! Load up on basics, knitwear, and one-of-a-kind items for yourself or a loved one. Shopping for friends and family could be tough, so I’ve set up a little gift guide to help you breeze through the holidays. 

For the women in your life, you can’t go wrong with their luxe cashmere sweaters, scarfs, hats, & socks or their selection of silver, gold & rose gold colored accessories. In terms of menswear, choose from their assortment of sleek ties, belts, wallets, & winter accessories. You can also shop their collection of stylish knitwear, and outerwear. With plenty of awesome finds waiting for you at COS, give the gift of style this holiday season.
