Tim Coppens Fall/Winter 2013 Collection
The collection is dominated by white, greys and black, with touches of navy and a rich burgundy, forming a stark palette for the graphic shapes of this collection. Prints are inspired by the splatter and lines of graffiti, and lend a sporty feel to a sleek collection. Double-faced wools, neoprenes and foam leather serve as the foundation, lending itself to the stiff and voluminous shapes that dominate the collection. As always, an attention to detail illuminates the impeccability of the garments. Zippers and closures are made from copper in stark contrast with the dark fabrics, and minimal snap closures are further concealed with hidden fabric panels, further minimizing any distractions from the tailoring. This attention to detail is continued even where it cannot be seen, where outerwear is adorned with shocking fluorescent inner linings, an homage to the rebellion of youth.
