H&M's expansion plans continue with its minimalist-luxe sister brand Cos, which unveiled its second SoCal outpost at Costa Mesa's swanky South Coast Plaza yesterday. The stylish Swedish label debuted on level 2 of the Bloomingdale's wing, where it's sandwiched between its fast fashion parent and another international import, Amsterdam-bred Scotch & Soda.
The 4,155-square-foot boutique stocks clothing, footwear, and accessories for women, men, and kids in the brand's signature sleek silhouettes. Up next: Cos's Beverly Center shop, which is taking over Kitson's old space and still awaits an opening date.
