It’s New York Fashion Week and seasoned Interview photographers Shawn Brackbill, Christopher Gabello, Kate Owen, and Pablo Ravazzani are backstage and front row at our favorite shows. Check in daily and follow Shawn, Chris, Kate, and Pablo on Interview‘s TwitterInstagram, and Facebook, for the latest updates.

For his sixth show in New York, Belgian designer Tim Coppens stuck to sharp silhouettes, presenting a collection dominated by outerwear with modern shapes. Wool, leather, and synthetic materials in mostly black, green, and white were the elements he mixed and matched in each look. Coppens has always drawn on a skater aesthetic, but this season he pushed the sportswear vibe even further with hoodies, sneakers, and sweatshirts incorporated into what might otherwise pass as uptown, professional attire.  It is a testament to Coppens’s tailoring skills that the few female models sent down the runway in looks similar to the men’s appeared equally at ease in pieces including a jacket with quilting detail, another with silver fur, and a visible zipper skirt.
