A contemporary clothing brand owned by the same group that operates H&M is coming to Canada.

COS — short for Collection Of Style — has announced plans to open its first Canadian stores in the coming fall and winter. COS is an up-market brand from H&M offerings, with similar fast fashion clothing at a slightly higher price point.

The first COS store will be a three-floor location at 85 Bloor St. in Toronto.

Its Montreal store will be housed at 1310 Ste. Catherine W.

The clothing label, with products for men, women and children, launched in London in 2007 and has opened stores in 26 countries.
