A FASHION OASIS

Hot off their 2016 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nomination, Rochambeau design duo Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper gave us a Moroccan style theme for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The shapes were perfect for the warm weather months, including breezy, loose fitting silk shirts, caftans, tunics and cropped trousers. The overall colorful scheme created a very relaxed yet tropical feel, with pops of royal blue and purple mixed with whites, grays and lavenders. Our favorite look had to be the high-waisted crop trouser, which opened and closed the show. The designers also wisely threw in a few great womenswear looks, perhaps a clue to a forthcoming womenswear collection in the not so distant future. And why not? By the looks of it, the designers have moved on from their streetwear beginnings and clearly made their mark on modern menswear design.  Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://rochambeau.nyc

JUICE

Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper, the creative design duo behind New York City menswear label Rochambeau, took inspiration for their Fall/Winter 2016 from the 1992 Tupac Shakur film Juice. The looks sent down the runway were oversized and layered, giving us that very urban 90s feel. There were overalls, sweatshirts and baggy trousers, shown in warm earth tones that were quite popular in streetwear fashion at the time. The line, however, felt updated with the use of modern fabrics. Ponyboy favorites included the mohairs and ponchos. Though referencing early 90’s hip hop fashion, the line seemed modern in design and cuts, with tweaks giving it that progressive Rochambeau look. We call this fresh. The design duo have successfully earned respect in menswear fashion. Juice indeed. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://rochambeau.nyc

THE NEXT STEP

For Spring/Summer 2016, Rochambeau menswear designer’s Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper took a step forward with their menswear line. The design duo left the street/urban element that always seemed predominant in past collections in favor of a more sleek and elegant look. Everything seemed very light weight and clean. The designers gave us an abundance of layers in soft pink and blue, and white and tan. The line was filled with shiny fabrics, deconstructed knitwear, oversized tops, parkas, bombers and joggers. There was a terrific slick jumpsuit that closed the show, and we were amused by the oversized blue sweater with a large woven “R” paired with brilliant blue leather shorts. Silver metallic bags added a nice touch to the collection, as well as the glossy, parted hairstyles that are usually worn by bankers on Wall Street. This really is modern, contemporary menswear at it’s best, and always a Ponyboy favorite. Photography by Alexander Thompson.

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.

DEMOLITION DOLL RODS

The LOOK of Rochambeau Autumn/Winter 2014 menswear, designed by Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler, was “Fast and Furious!’ The black and white set centered around a wrecked automobile right smack in the middle of Milk Studios which created a very dramatic effect. This was luxurious, edgy streetwear at it’s best, in tones of black, grey and burgundy. Baseball caps and padded quilted coats were worn with spray painted high tops in day-glo colors. Accessories included racing googles and a very edgy protective face mask on one model. And we loved the one female model in the presentation which off-centered the entire menswear presentation. Cast with a mix of street and fashion models, this collection was very young, very fresh and very urban. Photography Alexander Thompson.
