In Brief

The clothing brand celebrates Dorothea Rockburne's art in its latest line, featuring some of the artist's signature motifs while blending them seamlessly with its own modern, functional aesthetic

In partnership with New York’s Dia:Beacon gallery, clothing retailer COS is creating a capsule line based off of the installation work of Dorothea Rockburne. The artist’s show at Dia:Beacon is mathematically and geographically inspired, in keeping with her usual themes, but she has also taken to experimenting with folded and torn paper forms as well as graphic shapes, both of which Cos has incorporated into its collection.

COS has combined its aesthetic with Rockburne’s art to create clothing and accessories that are minimal upon first glance but that have a lot going on beneath the surface, including origami-hemmed shirts and tote bags that look like crumpled paper.

COS’s new collection is yet another example of the art and retail worlds merging to create a tangible experience for art lovers and consumers. Partnerships between artists and retailers are on the rise, and are pioneering a new future for both industries. Dia:Beacon and Rockburne are helping to breathe new life in to the fashion world with this partnership as well as putting artists on the map.
