Cos x Nendo

Following on from their installation in Milan last week, Cos have launched an online concept store in collaboration with Japanese designer Oki Sato of Nendo.

"I feel Nendo and Cos have a lot in common" says Oki Sato in this interview. "The simplicity, the way we both concentrate on details, and the way we deliver richness. Richness not in terms of high status, but about enjoying life, and giving people a small smile."

"The smartly ordered shirts are crisp white until they fall inside the steel cube frames, at which point they take on colour, as though the space itself has dyed them." - Oki Sato, Nendo
