Drawing inspiration from a theme of mountains and survival, Tim Coppens integrated men’s looks with an edge for his classic active wear in his fall/winter 2014-15 collection. The rustic collection is mainly menswear, but a few womenswear looks made an appearance.
The men’s looks incorporated weather resistant fabrics, like Austrian Loden Wool, in quilted coats and bomber jackets layered with multiple fabrics. Our favorite look was a plaid kimono coat in ivory cut roughly, staying true to the inspiration of the Austrian peaks.
Colors remained explorer-esque with navies, grays, whites, and blacks, plus plaids of blues and greens, and aluminum accents. Prints were chosen carefully, and stayed within the choices of polka dots, samurai, and base camp print, which spilled over into the women’s collection, as well.
For the ladies, pieces stayed rustically in tune with the men’s, but with a kiss of femininity. Military inspirations were more apparent through the production of parkas and wool blazers, while scarves offered a ladylike touch to looks of rugged outwear.
