Tim Coppens was founded in New York in 2011.
Born and raised in Belgium, Tim Coppens graduated from the internationally acclaimed Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1998. He has worked with various luxury and sports-performance brands before founding his own label.
His collections are defined as athletic luxury portrayed with elegance and sophistication. Craftsmanship is blended with innovation.
The energy of the city, street culture, as well as a pulse that feels the present and the future are sources of inspiration.
Since his first season, Tim Coppens has received strong support and praise from both retailers and press. WWD selected him as part of the “Ten of Tomorrow” Rising Stars. Barneys New York immediately ordered his first collection and international retailers followed suit, including Dover Street Market, Isetan, Club 21, Harvey Nichols and Mr. Porter.
In 2012 he received the Ecco Domani Award for “Best New Menswear Designer”. The following year he was awarded the Fashion Group International Rising Star of the Year. Most recently Coppens was a 2013 finalist for the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund Award, and is currently a nominee for the CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear and a finalist for the LVMH Prize.
