TIM COPPENS S/S 2015
Belgian designer Tim Coppens Spring/Summer 2015 runway collection was all about sleek, high-tech sportswear with clean lines and zipper detailing. The designer sent his mannequins down the catwalk with wet-looking, matted down hair paired with shiny glowing skin, as if having been out all night at the clubs. Signature elements were color blocking, splashes of a “jungle” print, and the obligatory black mesh thrown in. We absolutely loved the men’s super modern bombers in white. The designer’s sixth season, this collection also brought the introduction of his highly anticipated womenswear line. Far from being unisex, the women’s line takes on a more fitted, tailored construction than the men’s. As always, Tim Coppens succeeds in presenting a very modern and youthful, forward vision of dressing for men. And this now includes women. Photography Alexander Thompson.
