the new look: origami.

the new look

i first discovered cos when i was in europe years ago, and i found their take on the classics was very inventive…interesting details that generally elevate everyday wear. i was very happy when they launched e-commerce (and a nyc store) last year, which meant i could snap up pieces without the 11-hour flight. in the beginning, i mainly stuck to tops and tees because i was nervous about sizing, but then this skirt came up. the silky gray fabric, the raw edges, that slit, and the pleat detail—the fanciness of it—was too good. it was the perfect thing to wear to dinner at one of my favorites, but i’m not going to keep it confined to after 5…
