Portrait of Fashion Designers JOSHUA COOPER and LAURENCE CHANDLER
By Hadar Pitchon
Longtime friends and business partners Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler created Rochambeau. The name comes from the French term for the game rock-paper-scissors. Rochambeau’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection has plenty of textures: furs, warm wools, weaves and knits. It is inspired by the mythology, folklore and dark imagery. We sent out photographer Hadar Pitchon to their New York City studio before their Spring 2013 presentation at New York Fashion Week.
Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper are the two designers of the men’s brand Rochambeau.
