The new Cos store, located at the former Tower Records in Wicklow Street, will offer Cos's full range across two floors when it opens soon ...

While music lovers get used to their favourite music store moving premises, fashion followers are only too happy with their new neighbours as COS gets set to open its first standalone store.

Tower Records has left the building and has taken up space on Dawson Street leading the way for a new brand to make itself known in the iconic spot.

COS has found some fierce following in Ireland thanks to its concessions in BT2 in Grafton Street and Dundrum, and in Brown Thomas in Cork and Galway, making way for its next chapter – to open a standalone store. And it’s almost here.

The store will be located on Wicklow Street mixing well in the main shopping area, alongside both high-end brands and boutique labels.

The store, which plans to open in spring, will be spread across 574m over two floors. It will feature the full collections of womenswear, menswear and childrenswear and will open with the fresh and dynamic spring summer 2014 collection comprising bold shapes and soft colours.

Marie Honda, COS overall brand responsible, said of the expansion: “Since opening our first COS concession in Ireland in 2010, we have been fortunate that the brand has received such a positive response. We hope our customers will continue to enjoy the brand, the collection and the new store.”

Remaining aligned with the COS aesthetic, the store interior will focus on the use of natural materials and stylish minimal features, creating a relaxing and enjoyable shopping environment for all. The store interior will be an example of the brand’s second generation design concept, redeveloped over the years to ensure modernity.
