Coppens was personally very excited to do the collection. He was quoted saying to WWD that “I’ve enjoyed getting to know Russell over the last few years as he has been such a great supporter of the Tim Coppens brand. Likewise, Barneys has supported us from the beginning as our first retailer for both the men’s and women’s collection. This collaboration felt natural for us and we are excited about the way the collection has come together.”
