ROCHAMBEAU SPRING/SUMMER 18 RUNWAY SHOW

  • This Spring 2018 collection sees Rochambeau's ongoing contemporary artist collaborations reach a new level developed entirely with the prolific sculptor and painter Aaron Curry. The relationship with Rochambeau designers Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper goes back to 2014 with Aaron's seminal show at Lincoln Center, Melt to Earth, which featured 14 massive aluminum painted sculptures. These references provide the backbone for their Spring collection - pulling from Aaron's 2010 exhibition at David Kordansky Two Sheets Thick - the clothing is an extension of Aaron's elements. The clothing is an extension of Aaron's elements of collage- mix appliques with elements of paintings and silkscreens.
