London-based fashion brand COS has launched a new sustainable activewear collection for men made from recycled polyester and nylon. Called “COS Active for Men,” the collection features ergonomic shapes, flexible fabrications, and hidden detailing for a functional fit.

A collection made for performance and everyday movement; Active embraces new technicalities contrasted with timeless detailing to take the wearer from day to night; from commuting to performance sport, each durable piece is refined for maximum comfort. The new product offering presents a curated selection of menswear pieces in a crisp and neutral palette of dark green and navy alongside eclectic pistachio-green styling pieces to elevate the technical assortment.

Ergonomic shapes are crafted with recycled fabrics and styled with diverse layering pieces in the form of a technical scuba vest, water repellent pullover jacket or hooded vest finished with reflective tape detailing. Organic cotton essentials act as a base, designed to complement a technical offering with a performance and athleisure aesthetic.

The collection incorporates dynamic technicalities into the everyday wardrobe, a neon finish water repellent technical jacket is darted for seamless shaping coupled with a considered, hidden-pocket detailing. The recycled polyester running trouser is paired-back with a matching jacket, whilst a functional mesh panel integrated on both the underarms and back offers added ventilation. Water repellent finishes are fused with breathable fabrications, compact jersey paneling, reflective piping, and flexible zips to stretch with the garment for an active fit.
