Coperni Resort 2025

French design duo Arnaud Vaillant and Sébastien Meyer, the creative minds behind Coperni, took a transatlantic leap for their Resort 2025 (Cruise 2025) collection. Setting their sights on the tech haven of Silicon Valley, they unveiled a lineup that effortlessly fused West Coast cool with their signature Parisian edge.

This wasn’t the first time Coperni explored the world of the working woman with a scientific bent. Her pre-fall collection channeled the uniform of a CERN scientist, but the California iteration brought a relaxed, sun-kissed vibe. A playful floral print revealed, upon closer inspection, not blossoms but apples-a nod to the ubiquitous tech giant Apple and the region’s abundance of orchards. This vibrant motif graced jacquard cardigans, breezy wrap dresses and even a layered look of a button-down over a white t-shirt tucked into high-waisted jeans with patch pockets – a quintessential ’70s silhouette reimagined.

Denim also got the Coperni treatment. Playful asymmetry took center stage with a single-sleeved denim jacket and its one-legged pant counterpart, a guaranteed red carpet favorite for the fashion elite. A maxi denim skirt with a sinuous, sensual hem offered a touch of playfulness and undeniable wearability. Balancing the whimsy of the apple print, sharp preppy elements like striped polo shirts and dresses added a touch of collegiate charm, a nod to prestigious Stanford University.

Coperni’s ongoing exploration of outerwear-as-bodysuits continued. This season, the ubiquitous “performance” vest received a Coperni makeover, while a standout blue weatherproof hiking jacket bodysuit offered the most compelling interpretation yet. Footwear saw a chic evolution of the controversial “toe shoe” trend. Coperni presented sleek Mary Janes in white leather and black with crystal embellishments, taking the concept to a whole new level.

The final touch came in the form of a heather gray sweatshirt emblazoned with the slogan “STAY FOOLISH STAY HUNGRY” in bold yellow lettering. This quote, borrowed from the iconic counterculture magazine The Whole Earth Catalog, resonated deeply with Meyer and Vaillant. A call to remain curious and resist complacency, it perfectly encapsulated the spirit of innovation that drives both Coperni and Silicon Valley.
