ROCHAMBEAU F/W 2015

THE NEW YORK WINTER

Rochambeau menswear designers Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler took inspiration from the gritty, wintery streets of New York City in their Fall/Winter 2015 collection. The set was adorned with huge blocks of ice that were filled with odds and ends, much like the garbage you find on the streets of NY, including cigarette butts, umbrellas, metrocards, and an old slice of pizza. The brilliant collection incorporated both modern, futuristic looks as well as militaristic looks. Garments made of sleek, high-tech fabrics were shown alongside heavy, tactical-looking combat wear. Design details included industrial belt straps and oversized pockets. And accessories were comprised of large flashlights and Timberland boots. We love that this design duo stays true to their Rochambeau masculine aesthetic, as well as that they produce every piece of clothing in New York City. Photography Alexander Thompson.

WASHED AT SEA

Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper, the designers behind the menswear line Rochambeau, had their models hit the sea for Spring/Summer 2015. The duo’s presentation at New York City’s Milk Studios resembled a dock on the ocean, which fit well with the overall theme of their collection. Featured on UK supermodel Benjamin Jarvis, the fisherman sweater with matching shorts was a fresh take on a classic.  There were some intriguing hoodies, a super fashionable purple rain slicker, a photo print of ocean waves and some little touches that lent to the nautical effect, like the fishing net vest on model Adam Kaszewski and some classic beach accessories like visors, wooden beaded necklaces, espadrilles and even submarine goggles. In fact, this show made us dream for summer again, just as the fall has begun. Photography Alexander Thompson.

THE FUTURE IS NOW

Architecture was the key word for the Spring/Summer 2015 collection designed by Becca McCharen for the New York label Chromat. A former architect, the designer showed her powerful line at New York City’s Standard Hotel. The designs were all sexy, futuristic bondage with cage dresses, revealing bodysuits, gorgeous swimsuits and even face masks. The entire collection was stark black and white–very graphic, which was emphasized through her use of cut-outs. From close observation, the construction of the clothing looks beautifully crafted. This sci-fi vision was complimented by hair styling genius Chuck Amos, giving the Chromat models clean topknots and cornrows. We loved how she closed the show with her space-age “bride” in an all white cage dress and hat, just like the couture shows in Paris. It’s no wonder that pop stars like Beyonce, Madonna and Iggy Azalea all favor her high-tech creations. The future looks very bright for Chromat. Photography Alexander Thompson.
