Tim Coppens
Belgium-bred couturier Tim Coppens graduated from the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1998, sequentially collaborating with both higher-end and performance wear such as Ralph Lauren and Adidas, respectively. Blending the essences of streetwear, couture, and athletic wear with the erratic ebb and flow of city life, Coppens' works results in "athletic luxury," everyday-wear elevated by technique, quality, and tedious construction. Launching his first womenswear collection during the S/S15 season, Coppens' F/W17 anthology continues the mark, focusing on lightweight garment design, emphasizing the paramount status of movement.
