Tim Coppens’ small hometown vibes from Belgium are becoming a distant recognition, with his fall/winter 2016 collection “Acid.” Unlike last season, which paid homage to the grunge culture of the ‘90s, full of spotty patterns and melting mushrooms, this season brought forward a plethora of cultures and styles, colors and fabrics, while still staying true to his streetwear roots.
For fall/winter 2016, we saw flashes of military references with satin bombers, structured coats, and varying necklines, and even saw a few hints of new techniques: Japanese-style embroideries and graphics of doves and space orbiters; joggers and parkas with lace and eyelet detailing; western accents that were textural and eclectic; confetti tailoring and rainbow mélange jersey; and an unexpected collaboration of large, edgy bags with Eastpak. There were graphic tees splashed with “ACID” and a few red and black flannel pieces, including casual trousers and a zip-up, paneled hoodie. Vibrant red and dirty pink were seen mixed in between grey, black, and the occasional beige, blue, and forest green, and shoes were a base of red, black, or white.
On the runway, pieces were paired together in an effortless bundle. Models marched proudly on with their coats dangling from one shoulder, enormous bags delicately tucked underneath arm, and decked out in layering fit for the cold weather outside.
