Have you heard of Coperni? Allow us to formally introduce you. Balancing pragmatic design with intensive textile experimentation, Coperni’s name comes from the rebellious but romantic Prussian astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus.
The Parisian ready-to-wear and accessories label designed by Sebastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant was established in 2013. You’ll likely recognise their peculiarly ‘melted’ (yet structured) handbags and intricately sculpted apparel.
A linear sensibility is what stands out
A linear sensibility is what stands out when you scroll through Coperni’s collections, culminating in sharp accessories, sporty bodysuits, spliced knitwear and crisp linen shirts. The label’s palpable charm and point of difference then comes from a slate of final, meticulous tapestral touches — embroidery techniques learned by Vaillant and Meyer during years of experience in the studios of Balenciaga.
Since meeting in 2009, Meyer and Vaillant have been inspired by a diverse spectrum of creative stimuli, from Brutalist architecture and the decorative arts. Translating the evolving technology of new textiles into easygoing shapes, Coperni injects futurism into an age-old sense of Parisian ‘cool’.
Coperni’s story is told worldwide at 90 premium retailers, including Harrolds. Embrace the label’s latest arrivals now, online and in-store.
