Christophe Coppens, who creates fashion accessories and household objects, is radically Belgian in his approach. Humour, craftsmanship and quality are evident in everything he does, with pieces that appear to be suspended and timeless. I love his hats and wear them all year round; they have the ability to transform any outfit.

Tailor-made apprenticeship


Having first studied theatre and stage design, Coppens came to hat making when he started to spend his Saturdays learning the ropes from a Brussels milliner. His work is a blend of tradition and modernity, an expression of his creativity and wild imagination.

Multiple inspirations


Some themes crop up again and again in this artist's poetic and sensitive world: caged birds yearning for freedom or the image of hands placed on a man's hat. Everything about Coppens is wholly unexpected and surprising.

Open Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm.


Philippe, 38 AESTHETE

My fashion job takes me around the world throughout the year. I love flea markets and hunting for antiques year round, meeting up with friends at art show openings, going to fashion shows and being first to discover a new restaurant.
My little extra: introducing people to the "arty" and underground side of Brussels!"
