Rochambeau + AF1's
“we got about 150 pairs of Air Force 1s from Nike that they let us play with. We enlarged the swoosh and added dangling mini sculptures straight from Aaron’s imagination.”
- Our relationship with Aaron began during his “Melt to Earth” show at Lincoln Center.
We started a dialogue as we were fans of his work and he of the clothing- we would visit his studio in LA and he would come by ours when in NYC.
We bonded over our similar references in pop culture, graphics, skate, punk, cartoons and love of art. For Spring 2018 we mentioned the ideas of Nikes as sculptural bases and he loved it. We envisioned the models as his sculptures.
