Where the runway meets the street

Belgium born designer Tim Coppens studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and has since worked as a senior designer at Bogner and adidas. In 2008 he moved to New York and became the design director of Ralph Lauren’s RLX line. Finally he launched his own brand in 2011 and we can present the second collection for Spring/Summer 2012 today. The designer already won the Best New Menswear Designer at Eco Domani Fashion Foundation Award.

You can find a lot of great details in Tim Coppens collection and clearly see that he has been working with technical fabrics before. Functionality and style are both at the core of the collection, perfectly fused in most cases. The carpet inspired prints act as nice contrasts to the otherwise very streamlined collection.

Check out the full Tim Coppens Spring/Summer 2012 Collection after the jump.
