Not everyone knows about Coperni. This French brand, although born in 2013, has always been an indie fashion house. Winner of the 2014 ANDAM Creative Label Prize and finalist of the LVMH Prize 2015, Coperni’s clean, sporty style is favored by some of the connoisseurs of French fashion.
Coperni’s glass bag the rare it bag of 2022
But in 2022, Coperni exploded when creating a glass It Bag handbag that repeatedly appeared at red carpet events. Jacquemus now has a formidable competitor!
The body of the bag is oval in shape, with the handle being an integral part of the body. The bag is thin and easily clipped under the armpit. The mouth is locked by a row of double zippers. It’s the Swipe bag, a Coperni exclusive design. The two designers Sébastien Meyer of Arnaud Vaillant, co-founders of the brand, drew inspiration for this distinctive shape from the swipe-to-home button on the iPhone screen.
This bag is made of genuine leather, handcrafted in Italy. However, Fall Winter 2022, it debuted with the material… glass for the first time! This is the result of a collaboration between Coperni and Heven, a glass furniture maker from New York.
Heven has turned Coperni’s Swipe bag into a work of colored glass art, with two straps attached to two funky demon horns. It was debuted by Gigi Hadid on the Coperni Fall Winter 2022 catwalk.
Talking about this unique design, the designers said: “It should be a bag that fits your iPhone, your wallet, and can protect you when you walk home.” The reason is that New York has become unstable during the pandemic, and a bag with dangerous sharp corners will be an effective self-defense weapon.
Perhaps, Coperni never thought that his glass bag would be so hot. It was made exclusively for the catwalk, as a showpiece, and was not released to retail channels. However, right after the show, a series of stars contacted the French fashion house to own it.
Start with Doja Cat and Tinashe. Two big stars chose Coperni glass bags to appear on the red carpet of the 2022 Grammy Awards. Doja Cat chose a ton-sur-ton blue glass bag model with a Versace dress. The bag has an opaque handle and transparent body, revealing the golden candies inside.
As for Tinashe, she combined a pink GCDS dress with a red glass bag made for herself by Coperni and Heven (the red color is not part of the original palette on the Coperni Fall Winter 2022 catwalk).
But, this bag only really reached the tipping point of social networks when it appeared in the hands of female millionaire Kylie Jenner.
During a trip to promote the Kardashian family’s new reality show on Hulu, Kylie Jenner opted for a playful glass Coperni bag with two devil horns. The reason she chose it is probably because the transparent material that reveals the product inside is Kylie Cosmetics cosmetics – she never misses the opportunity to promote herself for “homegrown” products.
After only two weeks, the eldest sister Kim Kardashian followed the youngest brother and appeared at the Revolve party within the framework of the Coachella music festival 2022 with a silver version.
This bag is so attractive because it is a work of art that instantly makes your fashion outfit unique, more than just a fashion accessory.
However, according to the two founders of Heven, Breanna Box and Peter Dupont, they are not ambitious to make art products. “In my opinion, an art product has no use function. You cannot live with it or eat it. It’s just there to be beautiful, that’s all,” said Peter Dupont. “And our products are always highly applicable.”
Besides, the duo emphasized that glass bags are nothing new. “My grandmother used to collect glass bags,” says Breanna Box. “But they’re usually made of many pieces of glass connected together.”
Facing the strong reception of fashion lovers, Coperni and Heven decided to launch genuine products and put them on sale in the near future. This will be a challenge as this bag is very difficult to manufacture. “We did a lot of things that weren’t applicable in the traditional glassblowing technique,” says Peter. And Breanna giggled, “We had to use scissors to shape the bag. It is very difficult to create the shape of the [Coperni] bag.”
Because of the efforts mentioned above, when on sale, this Coperni x Heven glass bag will not be cheap. However, it will probably sell out quickly, because currently the market does not have so many unique It bag models.
