COS To Open New London Store Designed By Heatherwick Studio ⇒ COS, the minimalist and contemporary clothing brand, is opening a new store in London, in a lifestyle and shopping space designed by Heatherwick Studio. Located at Coal Drops Yard, the space will be organized on three levels, for a total area of 577 square meters.
Continuing a solid tradition of artistic collaborations that reflect the influence of design and architecture on the brand’s aesthetic, COS will share its inspirations and interests inside a single unified space, unveiling a revised concept and offering a completely new experience.
Located within the historic buildings and arches directly adjacent to Granary Square and Regent’s Canal, fashion names Fred Perry, Superga and Danish brand Rains have all been added to the line up of the Heatherwick Studio-designed development, alongside body care and hair brand Aesop.
They join Cos, Wolf and Badger, Paul Smith, Cubitts, Lost Property of London, Beija London, Emin and Paul, Cheaney and Tom Dixon, which have all confirmed to take space at Coal Drops Yard, which aims to have a focus on independent, craft and niche brands.
“We set out to do things differently, to be able to meet the needs of the stores and shoppers of both today and tomorrow. Through a spirit of collaboration and partnership with entrepreneurial brands, who have reacted to the unique spaces at Coal Drops Yard with excitement and imagination, we have been able to foster a like-minded community, creating a district that is truly innovative,” said Anna Strongman, partner at Argent.
Coal Drops Yard will open to the public on October 26.
