Often thought to be a Fall/Winter piece, flannels have made their presence felt in this year’s round of Spring/Summer collections. Although most people will be shedding their layers, having flannels in your arsenal can provide a great finishing touch.

 

This season, designers have gone away from traditional drab offerings and countered with a fresh mix of bright colors and clean monotones in lightweight fabrics. Elongated, oversized, and flowing fits allow breathability and justify the additional layer, even during the summer.

 

Fear of God Flannel (Blue): First Fear of God Flannel that doesn’t feature side zippers. It delivers an elongated body with drop shoulder to add comfort and volume.

 

Mr. Completely Banded Collar Shirt (Orange): Boasts a mandarin collar and front pockets along with a loose fit.

 

Public School Double-sleeve Mandarin Shirt (Red): Layered sleeve detail with a mandarin collar and traditional shirttail hem. Also features a shoulder yoke in back.

 

A.P.C. Trevor Plaid Shirt (Green): Touting a large front chest pocket and a curved hem, this flannel is made of a blend of cotton, linen, and ramie, giving it a super-soft feel that resists wrinkling.

 

Pierre Balmain Check Shirt (Black/White): Features a traditional fit and shirttail with button cuffs and a spread collar.

 

Mastermind Button-Up Shirt (Black/White): A fresh twist on the gingham pattern with oversized checks. Also features a drop-tail rounded hem in the back.

Public School New York joins forces with the Jordan brand to bring forth a unique capsule collection of footwear and apparel. This collaboration between the rising fashion power and the established athletic giant is not the first of its kind. This time around, however,  the stakes are much higher.

 

Since being leaked on social media months ago, the PSNY 12’s have become the focal point of this collection. Despite garnering all the attention, one should know the 12’s are not the only footwear release of the collection, which will also feature an iteration aptly named the Air Jordan Horizon PSNY. The collection will additionally feature a few essential items for the winter to supplement the footwear. The clothing perfectly occupies the intersection of the two labels. Mixing performance elements with Public School’s signature athletic-inspired silhouettes, the collection employs technical fabrics to accentuated a futuristic sporty style. Though Public School continues to play in their comfort zone, PSNY x Jordan ought not to be seen as a mere diffusion off the runway. For instance, though we’ve already seen an anorak from PSNY on the runway just this season, its iteration for this collection is much more different — much more Jordan. The Jumpman logo aside, the detail stitching in front invokes the iconic stitching on the uppers of the 12’s. Without a doubt, the collection is ‘Jordan’ as much as it is ‘Public School’.

It’s no coincidence that Public School captures the je ne sais qouis of New York City style, considering both designers, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, are born and bred New Yorkers. It’s this authenticity that separates Public School from their peers within the clichéd “downtown cool” category. In fact, like other members of the new guard of fashion designers finding success, Chow and Osborne create clothing for themselves as opposed to an imaginary customer.

Prior to Public School’s 2008 launch, Chow and Osborne were already industry vets. Showroom visits repeatedly left the two unimpressed with the menswear landscape of the time, inspiring the duo to plunge into creating their own label. A hiatus, a 2013 CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear, a 2014 CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year Award, and a 2015 International Woolmark Prize later, Chow and Osborne consistently deliver the perfect uniform for the New York City dweller.

The collections, designed and produced entirely in New York, continually play between two opposing ideas. Streetwear and high-fashion. Relaxed but tailored. Cool, yet effortless. Chow and Osborne.

Continuing the “yin and yang” embedded in Public School’s DNA, we’ve enlisted male and female to showcase our A/W ’15 menswear offerings.
