COS, –H&M Group’s label – has launched its first activewear collection, a sustainable menswear offering crafted using recycled materials.
Containing flexible fabrics this collection has been made for everyday performance and comfort. Embracing new technologies with traditional detailing, each garment attains a crisp and neutral colorway, alongside pistachio-green styling pieces.
Layering garments are introduced in the form of a technical scuba vest, water repellent pullover jacket and hooded vest, each finished with reflective tape detailing. The collection also incorporates dynamic technicalities, with a neon finish water repellent technical jacket with seamless shaping and hidden-pocket details.
The recycled polyester running trouser comes with a matching jacket, while a functional mesh panel integrated on both the underarms and back offers added ventilation.
Sold online to start, the collection contains more than a dozen pieces including socks, leggings, sports bras, underwear, outerwear, and tops. The items range from $45 to $190, according to WWD.
Nicole Bischofer, head of women’s wear design at Cos, told WWD that the whole collection is made using fabrics such as organic cottons and recycled polyesters, nylons, and polyamides. Durability is also a factor. “Every piece should have a long lifespan,” she said.
The company has plans to offer the women’s activewear in some Cos stores later in the year, the outlet reported.
