Belgian Corner: Ilke Cop ‘Ideal Vice’

Photography Shari Ruzzi

Ilke Cop is a badass chick with a great design aesthetic. She founded the ILKECOP brand in 2015 which is a young high end label for women.

No Made in Asia labels found in her clothing because all of her clothing are carefully fully produced in Belgium.

Her honest production process with fair wages as well as ecological awareness of the environment makes her brand more and more contemporary.

Ilke who is often described as an ‘art historian and young fashion designer’ graduated in June 2015 from the fashion department of the academy of Sint-Niklaas (Belgium). In March 2015 she launched her own label ILKECOP and presented her first capsule collection ‘Extinct’ for A/W1516 and now she recently presented her AW 2016/2017 ‘Ideal Vice’ collection.
