Rochambeau at NYFW: Men’s
As the New York Fashion Week: Men’s is coming to an end, NYC based brand Rochambeau presented its latest collection on the last day. Compared to other runway shows during the week, Rochambeau’s show attracted more audience had a different atmosphere; Two DJ stages were set up on both sides of the runway. It was more than a collection runway show but a youthful and metallic space.
The F/W 2016 collection took inspirations from the Nineties. Cuttings of many garments were oversized and bulky, yet this proportion seems to be ahead of the trend of the upcoming season. Main colors used in this season include orange, cream, navy blue, and brown in small detail portion or in large. Use of nylon and corduroy highlight the theme of retro to the Nineties.
Founded by Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler in 2007, Rochambeau carries the designer’s hope to break into the fashion industries with menswear. With the basic principle of designing for men’s streetwear, Rochambeau continues to strive for innovative detail and fabrication for modern craftsmanship.
Editor’s personal favorite piece is the hooded orange anorak with elbow patch on top. It will surely be a great hit of next fall and winter among many city fashionistas.
