COS X Japanese Shibori Artisan Kazuki Tabata

May 15, 2024

COS announces a limited-edition collection featuring the traditional Japanese resist-dying craft of shibori by Kyoto-based artisan Kazuki Tabata. Utilising this time-honoured technique, mesmerising patterns emerge through binding, folding, and dyeing cloth in limitless ways.

The collaboration proudly celebrates the fusion of traditional craft and modern design through a 14-piece capsule that spans womenswear, menswear, and accessories. COS’ signature silhouettes are transformed through the craft of shibori: the result is a capsule with a unique blend of texture and flair. As art and fashion intertwine, soft tones of blue, orange and brown evoke a sense of timelessness and calm.

Designed for creative layering and adaptable styling, each garment captures the essence of summer dressing. Highlighting the collection’s dedication to intricate craftsmanship, the Sekka Shibori technique is used to create a delicate silk scarf. Additionally, the Tesuji Shibori technique takes centre stage on garments made from more sustainable materials such as recycled nylon and TENCEL Lyocell.

The capsule launches online and at COS Yorkdale in June 2024. —Vita Daily
