Unprecedentedly, London-based fashion brand COS took over the historic Corsie Sistine in Rome, for its first ever runway show in this eternal city. Dating back to the 15th century, Corsie Sistine was Europe’s oldest hospital. Inaugurated after a two-year conservation, thanks to Roman’s local health organization ASL Roma 1, the newly-restored monument is an authentic blend of pristine historical architecture and contemporary design. Featuring a modern structure crafted from recycled voile that creates a striking contrast to the ancient walls, the new Corsie Sistine is undoubtedly an ideal venue for COS’ Spring/Summer 2024 show.


Abbreviation of “Collection of Style”, COS epitomizes the contemporary minimalistic style with a focus on sustainability, innovation and craftsmanship. Not mere a display of style, the COS Spring/Summer 2024 is also a showcase of the brand’s endeavor in their values. Introducing simultaneously its Spring/Summer 2024 Mainline and Atelier collections, the 33 sophisticated looks embody the brand’s clean and cozy aura. The looks were relished by the 13,000 square meters of frescoes in the backdrop, emphasizing the enthralling merge of past and future. With legendary Italian supermodel Mariacarla Boscono elegantly closing the show, the pure excellence of COS’ aesthetics and craftsmanship climaxed.

Standing out with its exquisite fabrics use and meticulous attention to detail. The looks from the latest collection were marked by hand-pleated shoulder details, fishtail skirts, and flowing maxi volume. Tailoring and knitwear were redefined with extended hybrid sleeves and folded lapels, showcasing technical experimentation in cutting and texture. Leather jackets, ballet flats, and loafers highlighted the materials’ textures, while wide-leg pleated trousers featured hand-painted hems, adding depth and movement.


The collection also experimented with the materiality of light, exploring how chromatic effects can be achieved on translucent fabrics. Bold red tones on a neutral palette of steel blue, black, white, and sand rendered a beautiful and dramatic contrast.


Seamlessly mixed traditional craftsmanship with modern principles, COS reaffirming its commitment to timeless taste and uncompromised quality. The use of sustainable materials, including recycled components and paper yarns certified by the Responsible Wool Standard, emphasized the brand’s dedication to sustainability.


A selection of the runway collection is immediately available at COS boutiques and on cos.com, with more models to be released throughout the season. The Atelier line will be available from April, offering timeless elegance and craftsmanship both in stores and online.
