While I was complaining of certain beauty brands not being available locally, the fashion scene in Dubai is growing and there’s a new entrant to the malls – COS, i.e. Collection of Style officially opens its doors in Dubai this week.
COS is the more up-market cousin of Swedish brand H&M, which is famous for it’s trendy designs. I was invited to a press preview last week in the DIFC Art Village and got a glimpse at some of the pieces to be sold in Dubai.
The clothes were a breath of fresh air with the simple cuts and silhouettes that would work great for layering separates. Fabrics were breathable and will definitely work well with the humid and hot Dubai summers. COS will also finally bring some more shopping choices in the high-street category, priced similarly to the likes of Zara and Mango.
And men we have some great news for you too as COS will be debuting its full menswear line in Dubai as well. We spotted some great linen shirts and suits in fresh colors so do pay them a visit and change up your attire from the usual denim and black combinations.
The Dubai COS store will be located in Dubai Mall (Fashion Avenue near MAC, Starbucks) and will be its largest store and second store in the region after Kuwait and officially opens to the public on March 23rd. Don’t forget to share your purchases with us!
