For SS17, Tim Coppens cites ‘90s skateboard culture and the club scene in his native Belgium as inspirations for the collection. From party culture to sportswear trend of that era, the designer sent models down the runway in technical fabrics, unique patterns and colour-blocked details

Prints like gingham, grid and houndstooth are incorporated into bomber jackets and joggers, finished with trims and pops of orange and silver. The range also has hints of Japanese-touches – long belts that mimic judo-style ones, vertical stitching to reflect traditional dress and an abstracted Mt. Fuji can be seen throughout.

Colours like khaki, olive drab, grey and black run through the range, making this a collection that is easy to work into your everyday wardrobe. Details like askewed patch pockets, contrast panels held together by cords add a point of difference for guys looking for something refreshing.

While the youth culture references are evident, the clean modern lines, which Coppens is known for, successfully gives the collection its blend of sophistication. He also introduces original leather sneakers for SS17 – a structural piece with neoprene backing that completed the rave and skate-inspired looks and these will be available in stores.

Hailing from the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Coppens founded his eponymous label in New York after working with various luxury and sports brands. He has received several awards including CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear and strong support from press and retailers such as Mr Porter and Barneys New York.

With his strong experience, it makes sense then why Under Armour, athletic gear maker, recently tapped Coppens to serve as its executive creative director for its new collection UAS (Under Armour Sportswear).
