PARIS — Coperni, the French clothing and accessories brand founded by Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, will relaunch during the upcoming Paris Fashion Week.
“We are very happy to be back at Coperni. It was an important moment in our story, as well as a chapter that was unfinished for our community and for us,” the duo said in a statement, referring to the brand.
“We have been working side by side for 10 years now, and our way of thinking has evolved a lot about our brand and fashion in general,” they continued, revealing they will be working with the support of Stefano Martinetto, chief executive officer of Tomorrow, and its team.
Meyer and Vaillant met Martinetto when they won the ANDAM Prize in 2014.
Tomorrow is taking a stake in Coperni and is providing access to its commercial platform and industry know-how.
“As a group, Tomorrow’s mission is to champion and foster the power of entrepreneurial creativity within the global fashion industry,” said Martinetto. “Since we first met, I’ve always been impressed not only by the creativity of these two, but also by their drive.”
Coperni, based in Paris, was established in 2013. In 2015, the brand was a finalist for the LVMH Prize, and Meyer and Vaillant were appointed artistic directors of Courrèges, where they remained until August 2017.
