Earlier this week, President Joe Biden announced that the US is on track for every adult to be vaccinated by May. Life, it seems, may return to the way we once knew it even sooner than we’ve come to expect. When, exactly, we can sweatily, sloppily dance the night away in clubs, however, is of course still to be determined (unless you live in Mississippi or Texas, where the governors recently made the baffling decision to allow businesses to reopen at full capacity). At the very least, however, we can rest assured that we know what we’ll be wearing when that time does come: Coperni.
Yesterday evening, a handful of Parisian editors, buyers, and influencers was picked up in electric cars and driven to the 12th arrondissement Accor Arena to take in the French label’s new Fall 2021 collection, which, according to the show’s notes, was “an exploration into the complexity and the mystery of nighttime as we know it: sometimes pitch-black, sometimes dotted with stars, sometimes illuminated by the moon.” For the occasion, models such as Adut Akech and Sophie Koella, walked the headlight-lit parking lot-turned-runway, dressed in high-octane clothes that pulled at the heartstrings of former club rats: skin-baring silhouettes, thigh-high glittery boots, and second-skin mesh (no chic update on cozy loungewear here). Surely even homebodies needed only glance at season closer Mica Argañaraz in a Kate Moss-esque sheer shimmery mini dress (paired with black panties and a padlock-shaped purse) to fantasise about a debaucherous evening of their own.
