Tim Coppens to launch debut womenswear
collection with Harvey Nichols

Luxury retailer Harvey Nichols has announced that it will be exclusively launching Belgium designer Tim Coppens' first womenswear collection. Launching on 9 February, the capsule collection comprises 12 looks, which featured on the catwalk alongside his menswear line. The collection focuses on the technical development of fabric, inspired by athletic practicalities and modern construction, with an emphasis on comfort and function. A key piece is Tim Coppens’ iconic parka, which has been redeveloped and slightly elongated for the female form. Further details include pleated finishes that offer a new perspective on the masculine silhouettes, while layering and cut-out accents are also key. Mirroring the menswear collection, a predominately monochrome palette is juxtaposed with his signature print, ‘Jungle Sunrise’. Born and raised in Belgium, Tim Coppens graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1998. Before launching his eponymous menswear collection, he led the sports-performance design groups at Ralph Lauren and adidas.
