5 questions for COS
After collaborations with The Serpentine Gallery and nendo, COS picked the American studio Snarkitecture to create an installation. Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen were inspired by the spring/summer collection in which light, transparent materials are a focal point.
When walking through the doors of Spazio Erbe, you end up in a clean and crisp white space, completely covered with long strips of white fabric that are hanging down from the ceiling.
1. Who are you?
I am Luca, a Fashion Design student at the Politecnico of Milan. I also work as a salesman at COS, here in the store on Corso Venezia.
2. Why are you in Milan?
Well, I live in Milan but I’ll stay here for a reason during the Design Week. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover a lot of new designers and see many different disciplines.
3. What is the most important thing that you gave learned so far?
I’m still at the beginning of my career, so I’m still learning every day. At the moment, things are going well. Through my job at COS I see that I can still grow, both as a person and as a designer. It gives me an idea about how the whole fashion business works.
4. Why do you do what you do?
That’s a difficult question, because I don’t have clear-cut answer. I was always very inspired by the aesthetics and approach from certain brands, including COS: it’s about fashion, but also about more than that. It’s also art and design.
5. What do you certainly not want to miss this year?
The Design Week just started so I haven’t really found the time to research what else there is to see. There are so many events, so I think I’m just going to walk around the city and see what crosses my path. And of course I will also have to help out at the COS installation.
