COPERNI is a contemporary luxury fashion brand founded by Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant. The brand takes its name from the renowned Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, who revolutionized our understanding of the universe by proposing the heliocentric model, placing the sun at the center of the solar system.

Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, both French designers, launched COPERNI in 2013. Their aim was to create a ready-to-wear and accessories brand that combines innovative design, modern aesthetics, and technological advancements. The duo gained recognition for their minimalist and clean designs, which often incorporate futuristic elements and precise cuts.

Since meeting in 2009, a perpetual artistic dialogue between Meyer and Vaillant has evolved into a profound design language. Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant both studied at the prestigious fashion houses Chanel and Balenciaga, which has given them a deep knowledge of the design language and its techniques. The inspiration from Chanel can be seen in Coperni's use of embroidery and classic cuts, while the inspiration from Balenciaga can be seen in their linear and architectural approach to design, their ability to create a balance between comfort and elegance and their focus on quality. Coperni combines these design techniques to create unique and timeless collections - yet with daring and edgy twists. The result is collections of modern and sophisticated styles that appeal to a new generation of fashion lovers.

In their collections you will find the iconic Swipe bags, Bridge boots, Origami bags, Heart bags, hyped Hybrid trousers as well as cool body suits and much more. Browse their ball silhouettes here.

A modern and forward-thinking approach

COPERNI made its debut during Paris Fashion Week in 2014 with a collection that received critical acclaim. The brand quickly gained attention for its sleek, architectural silhouettes and unexpected details. Their designs often feature geometric shapes, asymmetrical cuts, and bold lines, reflecting a modern and forward-thinking approach.

Coperni is a unique and sought-after fashion brand that has really taken off in 2022. The brand appeals to both fashion experts and fashionistas with a taste for sophisticated and timeless design. Coperni's designs are known for being minimalist with a touch of elegance. Their color choices are often neutral, and their aim is to create a balance between comfort and sophisticated style, which is a timeless combination. This is what makes Coperni’s designs unique and sought after. 

The brand's popularity grew steadily, and in 2015, COPERNI was nominated for the LVMH Prize, a prestigious award that recognizes emerging fashion designers. Although they did not win the prize, the nomination further elevated the brand's profile in the fashion industry.

In 2018, Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant decided to take a break from the traditional fashion calendar and suspended their ready-to-wear collections. During this period, they focused on developing a new digital-first approach to fashion.

In 2019, COPERNI returned to the runway with a collection titled "Aurora," which showcased its renewed vision and emphasis on technology. The show featured a virtual reality experience for the audience, blurring the boundaries between fashion and technology.

Coperni | World-renowned designs

Coperni has been recognized by several prestigious organizations and has received several awards in the fashion industry. 

Bella Hadid was featured on the runway SS22 getting a "spray-on dress" directly created by Mayer & Vaillant.  The "spray-on dress" testifies to Coperni’s modern and edgy approach to fashion and shows how the brand pushes the boundaries of a traditional dress design.

COPERNI has since continued to innovate and push the boundaries of fashion. The brand emphasizes sustainability, incorporating eco-friendly materials and practices into its collections. COPERNI's designs have been worn by numerous celebrities, and the brand has collaborated with notable names in the industry, further solidifying its position as a luxury fashion brand with a unique and modern perspective. 

The iconic Coperni bags

'The Swipe Bag' is one of Coperni's signature pieces and is inspired by the "swipe to unlock" icon on an iPhone. The bag is designed in new versions each season - those that match the trends of colors and materials from their ready-to-wear and the more daring artsy versions that come as limited editions and should be seen more as a piece of art. One example is the glass version of the Swipe bag, handmade in Saint-Mihiel in north-eastern France. Another one of their exclusive pieces is a Swipe version made in the rare stone meteorite.

The Swipe bag from Coperni comes in a myriad of sizes, colors, and materials, so you can always find the version that matches your wardrobe. Shop Coperni's sculptural 'One-of-a-kind' glass bag or browse through all the other iconic bags here.

Besides the iconic Swipe bag, you will find Coperni's version of the baguette bag, their charming heart tote, and their sculptural and architectural origami bag, whose shape nods to technology as it is inspired by the iPhone photo app icon.
