Born in Belgium, Tim Coppens graduated from the internationally acclaimed Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1998. After having worked at Ralph Lauren until 2011, he founded his eponymous label. The response to his first collection was immediate, with Barneys New York picking up the collection exclusively. The following seasons saw the addition of new doors globally including; Louis Boston, Isetan, LN-CC, Club 21 and Edition, amongst others. In 2012 he received the Ecco Domani award as Best New Menswear Designer of The Year and in 2013 he won the Fashion Group International Menswear Rising Star Award.
The Tim Coppens menswear brand intertwines craftsmanship and innovation in a subtle way, expressing a modern vision of masculinity. Attention is focused on sharpness and precision in tailoring, classic luxurious fabrics fused with new innovative materials. Athleticism is portrayed with elegance and sophistication. The energy of the city, individuality, attitudes of defiance expressed in youth culture, as well as a pulse that feels the present and the future are sources of inspiration for the brand.
Fueled by a constant quest for innovation, grounded in sophisticated technique and refracting subtle traces of contemporary culture form the foundation of Tim Coppens.
