Public School creates perfect street ready city chic for fall in New York
We take a look at the Public School fall/winter 2015 collection shown at Made Fashion Week in New York.
First get of the glimpse of the models undergoing hair and make up before the show then take a close up look at the new season’s designs. The high end street wear brand stuck to a predominantly black, white and charcoal grey palette with just a scattering of wine red, smokey blue and oatmeal injecting some warmth.
We catch up with the designer duo Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne to ask them about the collection, their concept and inspiration. Chow told us the key point was a longer silhouette created by focusing the waist lower with maxi skirts for women, and elongated tunics for men. Oversized jackets also give a playfulness between high and low balance and there was a contrast in using technical fabrics for stripped down styles and simple fabrics on more layered and complex silhouettes.
Other pieces in the collection include a long utility style cape overcoat with large pockets, slim polo shirt dresses and oversized flannel check appearing on skirts, mens tunics, shirts and jackets. Models were accessorized with giant scarves, caps and knit hats perfectly street ready for fall in the city.
