2017 International Woolmark Prize Capsule Collection

BEGINNING THIS JOURNEY IN 2016, ROCHAMBEAU WAS US MENSWEAR RECIPIENT FOR THE  INTERNATIONAL WOOLMARK PRIZE.

THIS WAS THE BIGGEST ACCOLADE TO DATE AND GAVE US THE CHANCE TO SHOWCASE INNOVATION AND DESIGN IN MERINO WOOL IN A FULL CAPSULE COLLECTION.

OUR INSPIRATION WAS POST 9-11 NEW YORK CITY AND THE LEGENDS OF DOWNTOWN, IN PARTICULAR ARTIST, AND ENFANT TERRIBLE, DASH SNOW.

IN PERIODS OF UNREST, DISORDER, CONFUSION, NOT UNLIKE OUR CURRENT STATE NOW, WE CHOOSE TO FOCUS ON THE BEAUTY & CREATIVITY THAT COMES FROM TRAGEDY.

 


THROUGHOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COLLECTION OUR INTEREST AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE WOOL HAS GROWN. WE HAND TREATED WOOL TO RESEMBLE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF LEATHER. WE WORKED WITH INCREDIBLE WOOL EMBEDDED WITH LIGHT REFLECTIVE 3M FIBER. 

COLLABORATIONS FOR THIS COLLECTION WERE PRESENTED IN THE FORM OF MERINO WOOL ACCESSORIES, ALL CUSTOM MADE AND IN HOMAGE TO THE ARTWORKS OF DASH SNOW.
