Project NY | Public School
With the world put on notice from their NYFW debut Public School is finally set to release their promising Fall/Winter 2012 collection this year. But, with the world finally catching wind of their brand of New York progressive style everyone eagerly anticipates how they will follow up such a strong showing. That wait is semi over as we can now give a preview of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Albeit through their Project NY retail concept installation. The label continues to look at menswear through their own lens completely unabated by any outside influences, including production. BY maintaining a completely New York based production supply chain label owners Dao-Yi & Maxwell have complete control over the label’s bright future and with that some interesting progress can be seen. Chronoline waxed finished denim coupled with Martin Greenfield smart suiting, and Morimoto washed Lambskin leather vest all fit into brilliantly conceived and executed range from one of NY’s most promising brands. We are looking forward to seeing the full breathe of their Spring/Summer 2013 offers but for now we’ll take the previews as a sign of great things to come.
