Public School

New York: 
The design duo Dao-yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne continued to develop their young and tough aesthetic with their F/W 13 collection that caught the attention of many cutting-edge fashion trailblazers such as A$ap Rocky. Chow and Osborne proved that they truly understand what young men desire with this ultra-cool and dark collection, featuring innovative constructed garments and inventive fabrications such as pigment spray flannels, wax-treated denim, and even kangaroo leather. The collection featured an ominous color palette of black, midnight, and oxblood. Long black jersey headscarves styled under beanies and wide brimmed fedoras transcended a modern dark desert prince and looked current with The Generic Man collaboration patent leather Oxfords with bright white platform gum soles. Looks presented layered lamb leather vests over button-fronts and long wool shorts over skinny jeans, encapsulating Public School’s pioneering vision of progressive fit and attitude. —Kathleen Tso
