An early and instinctive taste for prints and graphics led Thomas to study visual arts and design in Brussels where he graduated in 2008 with a Master thesis on “patterns and repetitions”.
Since then Coccimiglio has embarked on a long journey: from London to New York, passing by Milan, Amsterdam and Paris, working alongside prestigious labels and exploring different materials, techniques and cultures.
His passion for traveling and collecting defines his particular aesthetic, tainted with ethnics and nostalgic references, though always reinterpreted through the lens of modernity.
The atelier in Paris
Since 2016, Thomas is offering his expertise and consultancy to several clients in high end fashion, architecture and contemporary labels. Offering custom made concepts each season, original hand-painted artworks, vintage archives, colours and fabrics developments.
