Home and Away: COS Launches High Summer 2023 Menswear Capsule

Whether packing for a sun-soaked vacation or dressing for the heatwave at home, COS menswear is the destination for an easy and delightfully breezy summer style. 

For summer 2023, the COS design team continues to stand by the brand’s founding ethos: elevated wardrobe essentials, with an inherent focus on quality fabrics and relaxed fits. Combining typical Scandinavian minimalism with easy-going appeal; this is a capsule collection that delivers all season long, from alleviating a stifling commute to aiding relaxation on the days spent blissfully ‘out of office’. 

A highlight of the COS menswear capsule was the inclusion of the collegiate style Striped Knitted Polo Shirt. Its open collar and dropped shoulders make for a relaxed silhouette, either styled on its own or layered over a t-shirt. Across the collection, shirts reference 50’s bowling styles, including the Open-Knit Short-Sleeve Shirt in navy, to be paired with the coordinating Waffle-Knit Shorts. 

For those seeking something a little bolder, the Camp-Collar Seersucker Shirt is inspired by 70s tie-dye and is cut for instant beach bar vibes — undoubtedly styled best with a pair of shades and  a cool mojito in hand. 

No summer capsule is complete without a linen suit. At COS, contemporary style meets traditional tailoring with its beige, 100% pure linen two-piece. The Tapered Linen Trousers have been designed with sharp pressed creases to ensure a smart silhouette, even when paired with a simple t-shirt. Meanwhile, the Regular Fit Single-Breasted Linen Blazer is partially lined for a soft structure. 

Poolside, COS menswear offers swimwear styles that work way beyond the sun-lounger. The Tailored Swim Shorts in dark navy mirror the design of the brand’s best-selling trousers, featuring belt loops, a buttoned back pocket, and a zip fly. 

Looking at accessories, the Oversized Crochet Tote is sure to become the must-have bag of the season. Whether filled with beach-ready essentials or provisions for a picnic in the park, this hand-crocheted style compliments every look in the COS summer capsule. 

A number of garments across the COS High Summer and Swimwear capsule are crafted from organic cotton, which not only guarantees comfort and wearability for warmer days, but signals to the brand’s broader commitment towards conscious practice and materials. After all COS is designed for the conscious shopper, whether at home or on holiday. 

With record-high temperatures, COS’s Summer 2023 menswear capsule provides the perfect selection of cool fits to beat the heat.
