With a focus on utility, COS’ latest arrivals experiment with the form and function of the the pockets.
Often overlooked, the humble pocket is an essential detail in modern clothing. Quietly enabling you to keep what you need close at hand, the pocket has earned a special place in our wardrobes since its earliest appearance almost 250 years ago.
Derived from the Old French word poque – meaning bag – the word pocket once referred to small pouches that were tied to their wearer, before slowly transitioning to the sewn-in design we know today. With a rich history influenced by political shifts, changing gender roles and the evolving needs of our everyday lives, the cultural significance of the pocket is surprisingly meaningful.
