Public School - Edgy and Sophisticated

Last week in NYC the Capsule Tradeshow was also taking place, for the first time actually. They had a great line-up of brands including Pharmacy Industries, CLAE Footwear, No Mas, Wood Wood, Vibskov, Ksubi, Surface 2 Air and many more. The one brand everybody was talking about was a new brand new one - Public School.
Public School is a new menswear collection designed by Dao Yi Chow (owner of Arrive Miami) and Max Osbourne. The collection was inspired by the two men's upbringing in the NYC public school system. The pieces are both sophisticated, and edgy, and cut from high quality fabrics. Later in the week we had the chance to have a closer look at the collection and we were impressed. Subtle in colors and graphics, rich in choice of materials and cuts. Also overall a very smart collection, with lots of little details that most brands do not think about. The new collection has many jackets, hoodies, shirts, some tees and other pieces that we cannot even describe.
Public School is a newcomer to look out for. They killed it at their first tradeshow, let's hope they will keep up the high expectations from now on. Check out pictures (taken from We Are The Market) of their first collection after the jump.
