Public School’s Elevated Urban Streetwear

New York: Public School designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne continue to be New York’s It-guys, partly because their collections tend to encapsulate the city’s sleek street look. However, season after season the designers elevate this concept by introducing more tailored pieces or playing with styling choices. The colour palette was kept minimal with mostly stark black and white looks such as crisp white button-up shirts paired with black bomber jackets and relaxed skate shorts or wide leg suiting trousers styled with athletic pull-over tops with drawstring hems. –Matt Feniger
