Now, I know I’ve asked you to do this before but, seriously this time, hide my credit card, for (be still my beating heart) H&M’s chicer sister COS is finally online! We told you about the gorgeous spring/summer pieces in stores and I’m lucky enough to have a branch on my doorstep, but for some crazy reason it doesn’t stock the kids’ collection (in Brighton, home to many a stylish bambino – go figure!), so I’m super-excited about this development.
The range is concise but complete, so you’re bound to find something to suit even the most discerning young consumer. I love the minimalism of the boys’ tops and sweaters – it’s so refreshing to find clothing devoid of slogans, branding and cartoon characters on the high street. As with the grown-up collection, the focus is on cut and the palette is a pleasing combination of greys, cobalts, burnt orange and zingy citruses – this yellow and grey wool sweater (above), â‚¬29,Â is heading straight for Alfie’s wishlist.
As is this Katvig-esque long-sleeved stripy tee, above, â‚¬15. For young ladies, there’s a brilliant keenly priced range of accessories, such as this necklace, bottom, â‚¬9. And if only they made this printed poplin dress (top),Â â‚¬39, in my size, I’d snap it up.
