Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant‘s Coperni isn’t actually a new brand: it was under hiatus during the designer’s tenure at Courrèges. But now, the boys are back, better than ever. Their autumn-winter 2019 is filled with clothes that seem to be basics that actually should be in everybody’s wardrobe. But when you think of it, who does simple, minimal, comfortable suits in Paris? Something as simple as a little black dress? Or a crisp blue shirt that isn’t elongated or exaggerated in any way? The designers do clothes for real life, so thoroughly considered construction of every single outfit is more than impressive. The airplane-mode-tab leather bag has a shape so classy and eye-catchy that it will surely stir social media, just like Meyer and Vaillant’s model casting (Teddy Quinlivan!) and the @coperni_your_life account that you’ve got to discover for yourself. I can sense success right over her.
