Public Springs Collection for New York Fashion Week was a stream of controlled chaos. With bold shapes and block colours this collection was more than what we were expecting.
Public school duo Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow made a large impact on the fashion world last year at New York Fashion Week that has continued to inspire admire. After scooping up the CFDA award for Menswear Designer of the year among many other accolades, Public Schools spring 2015 collection has continued to impress fashion-mista’s world wide.
The garments include and assortment of relaxed yet tailored blazers, trousers and short designs with an inspiration from military styles including bullet-proof-ie vests, bomber jackets and side caps. The collection began in black and white with strong geometric shapes and patterns in materials including silk, mesh, and knit. Then came the chaos, with pops of electric blue, followed by glitchy stripes in various colors and exploded marble patterns. Finally the prints reached complete distortion with static and broken lines. The use of luxury materials in dark hues mixed with light grey and cobalt blues create a sense of cool sophistication for the summer months.
“It’s about finding order out of chaos,” said designer Dao-Yi Chow backstage after the show. “It’s a reflection of the way life is: You need to make sense of the chaos to find the truth that matters to you.”
For us at Pause, we thought that the elongated button up sleeveless shirt as it was smart, stylish and eye catching along with the olive bomber jacket with black paneling. A strong collection altogether which every man should aspire to.
