ROCHAMBEAU

Longtime friends and business partners Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler formed Rochambeau (which is French for the popular game rock-paper-scissors) in 2007, fulfilling a lifelong dream of stepping into the fashion industry to share their love of design and, in particular, their similar vision for men’s fashion with the world. Emerging from a family background in the print industry, a sector closely related to the fashion industry, the guys cultivated relationships within the fashion industry taking plenty of notes along the way. Since it's inception, Rochambeau has garnered critical acclaim and been featured in publications such as Surface, Antenna, The Examiner, YRB, Prim, The Fashionisto, OpenLab, Carbon, Obvious Magazine, Selectism, The Showt, Ones to Watch, In New York, as well as a 6 page spread for Interview Magazine featuring female supermodel Natasha Vojinovic wearing Rochambeau menswear telling the androgynous story of Jack and Jill among many others. Rochambeau has also been selected as finalists for the Prestigious Ecco Domani award as well as the Supima Design Competition. In February 2011, Rochambeau was chosen by the prestigious MAC & Milk to debut during New York Fashion Week with a presentation of their Fall/Winter 2011 Collection. The event was held in The Highline Room at The Standard Hotel and was well attended and reviewed by the press. Just weeks prior, Rochambeau was also selected to participate in an international fashion week in Columbia. Rochambeau retails at prestigious boutiques around the world, including OAK NYC, HARVEY NICHOLS Hong Kong, OKII-NI online, CHURCH LA, The Mondrian Hotel, FL, Kifka + Heller NYC, DAIS Boutique, London, Sid Concept, Saudia Arabia, as well as their recently launched ecommerce site (www.rochambeau.us.com). This collection is Primal Seasons Winter is a bittersweet time. As children it is a whimsical and magical time, but as adults we view it with a sense of jaded nostalgia. Rochambeau's Fall/Winter 2012 collection is inspired by the mythology behind our holidays. Christmas and the story of Santa Clause has roots in pre-Christian Pagan mythology and is steeped in dark primitive folklore and dark imagery of a savage 12 night hunt through the heavens. The collection explores the myth through naturalistic textures; weathered skins, rich furs, and warm wools weaves/knits. The construction is architectural and represents both cold modern structure a well as Pagan runic symbolism in a primarily monochromatic palette. Press contact: matt@maopr.com
