“We are the streets,” explains Rochambeau co-founder Laurence N. Chandler, who started this lauded New York City-based menswear brand with business partner Joshua Cooper nearly a decade ago. “We are rooted in the streets of Downtown NYC. All product is designed and produced here,” he adds about the line, which includes Harvey Nichols, Oak, Hypebeast and Revolve Man as its impressive stockists.
Prior to being formally shown once again at CFDA’s Men’s Fashion Week on Thursday, February 4, Rochambeau’s new AW 16 offering will be on view at Capsule New York Men’s. Chandler says to expect “overalls, turtlenecks and litwear” from the new collection, which he describes as a present-day take on the 1992 movie Juice starring Tupac Shakur.
