COS’ latest chapter for fall-winter 2023, “In the City,” is a sartorial homage to the urban landscape, as navigated by model Liam Kelly. Fresh from his campaign with Marc O’Polo, Liam trades the serenity of nature for the kinetic energy of city life. 

The COS imagery is arresting: from the solitude of city rooftops to the bustling subway, Liam Kelly embodies the modern man—effortless yet calculated, donning workwear-inspired ensembles that mirror the architectural lines of the metropolis.

COS Fall 2023: In the City

This season itself is a study of tactile contrasts. One moment, Liam is enveloped in a checked cord shirt layered under a padded overshirt; the next, he’s in a puffer jacket that adds a cocoon of warmth to a wool-blend suit cut with relaxed precision.

COS’ pieces are not just garments but tools for navigating the urban labyrinth, each designed with a purpose that mirrors the city’s utilitarian beauty.

Yet, the teddy coat steals the scene, a textured marvel that encapsulates the collection’s ethos. Similar to a knitted zip-up jacket, the ensemble evokes the tactile richness of the city—from the roughness of a brick wall to the smoothness of a glass skyscraper.

Altogether, COS has offered a narrative, a way of interacting with the world as complex and layered as the city itself.
