Public School

WESTERN PUNK
New York: “Structure” was the cited inspiration for Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne (the New York-native designers behind the Public School label) this season, and it translated into straight, sturdy silhouettes that borrowed elements from Punk and Western styles for a new, ultra-cool rebel aesthetic. Layering was a key styling component; most ensembles consisted of a long mesh base tank, a T-shirt or button-front mid-layer and some form of tough outerwear — often a leather jacket or vest — on top. Well-selected accessories like neckerchiefs, collar pins and the season’s favorite Amish-flavored wide-brimmed hats completed each getup, and an understated blue-to-grayscale palette ensured sleekness. —Whitney Kessler
