Art Meets Streetwear At the Hand of Award-Winning Rochambeau Creative Director, Laurence Chandler

Art meets streetwear at the hand of Laurence Chandler, through the sophisticated menswear pieces from Rochambeau, where he serves as co-founder and creative director. The award-winning brand has successfully mastered the tricky marriage of artistic expression and wearability season after season, and in an exclusive conversation with Verishop, Laurence opens up about the brand’s design process. Listen to the episode, then shop the looks discussed on the show with free one-day shipping on Verishop. Laurence has been able to walk the thinnest of lines, combining art and commerciality, and do it with the highest honors. He’s collaborated with globally respected artists, and his work has graced the galleries of the New Museum -- and the iconic frames of model Cara Delevingne, musician Quavo and NBA star Carmelo Anthony. It’s his ability to absorb disparate ideas and the cultural ethos around him and turn them into the luxe streetwear designs that have earned Rochambeau the prestigious Woolmark Prize and the honor of being a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist. Plus, at the end of the show, catch a special bonus clip taped in front of a live audience of retail insiders at Project Vegas, one of the biggest men’s streetwear and contemporary trade shows. Alex sat down with Karl Kani, known as the Godfather of Urban Streetwear, who’s dressed greats like Tupac and the Notorious BIG, and with Jeff Staple, the man behind brand Staple Pigeon, who brought streetwear collabs mainstream.
