#GOODQuestions with Sébastien and Arnaud of Coperni
How was the process of sourcing and designing different this season compared to past seasons?
I feel that we are more focused. We always center our intention on the positive, and the truth is that we had a little time to think and to focus on what’s important, the core of the brand, and where we want to take it.
Who or what was the source of inspiration for the collection?
The theme of the collection is “the night.” After staying home for a year now, we felt that our friends, women that we speak to everyday and that inspire us, had one dream: putting on a sexy dress, her boyfriend’s jacket and running into that deep night. Explore, live and even dance a little…
Do you have any day of show rituals that bring you good luck?
Our team is our family, we work with our best friends everyday. So I guess they are our lucky charms! And our dog Neo that stays with us in the office everyday 🙂
What’s your favorite look or piece from the collection and why?
A sleeveless white fake fur coat. It is so pure, when the model tried it on, it felt like time had stopped.
What measures did your team take to work efficiently but stay safe while producing this collection?
We are lucky enough to have space. So when we needed to be in the studio, everyone had enough space to feel safe. But we did as much as possible digitally.
What were you watching most while designing this season?
RuPaul’s Drag Race

The music our friend and DJ Clara 3000 specially designed for the show.
