Tim Coppens at New York Fashion Week

After graduating from the Fashion Academy in Antwerp, in 1998, the Belgium-born designer, Tim Coppens, moved to Germany where he designed for Bogner and Adidas.

Tim later moved to New York where he designed for Ralph Lauren, finally launching his eponymous menswear label in 2016.

At New York Fashion Week this week, Tim presented his 2016 spring/summer collection, which was inspired by the French film entitled Un Proph├Ęte.

Released in 2009, the film narrates a story of an illiterate 19-year-old French youth of North African descent who is sentenced to 6 years of imprisonment for killing a police officer.

Through a series of ruthless events, the young lad abandons all innocence and turns to a life in crime—a life that seems to promise more than what he could have found outside the bars.

See the collection.
