YES. Since March, we've been anxiously awaiting a more definitive update on when fashion-crowd favorite, H&M off-shoot COS will open its first U.S. store and--hallelujah!--it's here.
COS (which FYI stands for "Collection of Style") will open in New York's SoHo neighborhood in spring 2014. No specific address has been announced, but the downtown locale—which is already home to two renovated H&Ms—makes perfect sense for the sought-after high-low brand's first location in the States. Now, local fashion peeps obsessed with COS's Marni-meets-Celine-meets-Jil Sander aesthetic need only hop on a quick train to SoHo (unless they already live there, of course) instead of booking a flight abroad--because you know they totally do that sort of thing. And the Euro-minimalist offerings will definitely appeal to the throngs of international tourists overflowing the streets of NYC.
Don't live here? Sit tight: The brand is also planning to launch e-commerce sometime in 2014, meaning those living outside of the New York City geographical limits will have easy access to get their COS fix, too.
