Coperni, a.k.a. Sebastién Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, is a new French label in it’s first season competing for the 2014 ANDAM First Collections prize that comes with a grant of 75,000€. “We were dreaming about Nicolas Copernic’s heliocentric model of the universe. Our label is all about the sun and light, everything that is vital to life,” says Vaillant. “We wanted to create an idea of movement in the clothes,” says Meyer.
