Sooner or later everyone comes to COS shopping for the basics. The biggest shop of the chain in Paris is located on a Jewish street of Marais and has women's, men's and childred's clothes departments. It offers an ideal compromise between the merchandize of big brands that many find too expensive and things by mass market brands that don't last too much. Thanks to the Scandinavian-style design of COS clothes, minimalists can buy a full set of apparel here, literally from head to foot. They seem to have everything, starting from most delicate underwear to autumn coat, with daily and evening dresses mixed on its shelves together with trousers, shirts and sweaters, plus there are lots of cheap but interesting adornments. Those who like to get the most for their money will like the bags and shoes department. The collection is always changing, with new things being added to the mostly monochrome selection once a week, so you might want to come here more than once.
