It's going to be good.

If you’re in Sydney today you should head down to the Old Commonwealth Bank building in Martin Place right now. Swedish retailer COS has just opened its first Sydney doors.

It may be there 140th store worldwide but it’s only the second COS store to open in Australia.

The store will be releasing two collections a year, and thanks to our Aussie climate, the collections will be released one season before the rest of the world. Finally we don’t get left behind. Love it.

The Spring/Summer collection is rocking a sportier aesthetic, experimenting with techniques like laser cutting and bonding.

It’s all so exciting we suggest just going a little bit nuts. It's nearly Christmas after all.
