Designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne look to sportswear, dance and urban street style culture to inform their label, Public School. Both born and raised in New York, the city’s ‘concrete jungle’ is the starting point for a collection of understated jackets, sweaters, jeans and T-shirts produced entirely in the city’s Garment District. With an understated sports aesthetic pulling leather, neoprene and mesh into a palette of mostly black and white, the brand have earned critical acclaim from both streetwear and high-end fans, holding two CFDA awards, the 2013 Swarovski Award for Menswear and the 2014 Menswear Designer of the Year, and the International Woolmark Prize to their name.- less
