Constantly carving his own path, Tim Coppens has been a staple in men’s fashion since his arrival on the scene. For his Fall 2016 Collection, Coppens kept to the streets with an electrifying presentation.

Coppens drew inspiration from many separate venues. First is the apparent grunge/punk scene. Tartan played its part perfectly as the print balanced itself among a strong color palate. While the drug of choice seemed to be ACID, as the words were seen printed on sweaters and tees.
The collection itself focuses more on separate details and individual identity then an overall selection. Each piece has high focus in design and technicality. Sportswear silhouettes were shown in bomber jackets and redesigned joggers. While obvious trends like turtle necks and sport coats played a substantial part.
Heavy layering and contrasting dimensions, while normally contrast, are shown flawlessly with the effort of sharp tailoring. The collection even features a collaboration with lifestyle brand Eastpak and shows a variety of bags throughout.
Overall, a smart collection from this Belgian designer.
