If you have patience and a good eye, you'll never go wrong at COS. Located on Barcelona's fashion-forward boulevard, Passeig de Gracia, this store is for those who appreciate high-quality simplicity and elegance. There are several rooms of clothes, all color-coordinated and each rack has a large variety of dresses, shirts, tops, jackets and pants made with top-notch fabrics including wool and silk among others. Their clothes are original and innovative, and each year the store comes out with a new crop, rarely duplicating any item from the year prior.

COS has recently launched its 2012 Autumn collection as well as its 2013 Winter line, featuring a variety of wool, knit and tailored jackets as well as cashmere scarves. They also have a new batch of beautiful jewelry and accessories including leather handbags, clutch purses and wallets.
This is one of the best places to shop if you're looking for quality, original and designer clothes at reasonable prices (although it is towards the higher end of 'reasonable'). It's a fashionista hub as well as one of the top places where those in the industry gain inspiration.
Keep your eye on their website as they sometimes have great deals especially around the holidays season and during Barcelona's 'rebaixes' (sales), which happen a few times a year and leave the stores completely empty.
