The Rochambeau Fall 2012 Collection has been one of the most wearable collections from the brand; however, don’t mistake this season’s crossover resonance with a lack of editorial element. This collection is versatile and genuine to Rochambeau; a very smart effort by designers Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper. Rochambeau maintained their relaxed, layered aesthetic with harem pants and collapsed waist detail, but added an intelligent amount of tailoring to the fit of their Fall 2012 Collection. With black as the main color of the collection, pops of deep burgundy hues with crisp white shirts and leather detail contrasts against the darkened palette. Fringed detailing in the letter accessories were a pleasant addition to the collection, while the hats and gloves, though not fringed, also completed the looks with a sartorial edge.
