Public School‘s 2017 spring/summer menswear and women’s resort collection was all about calling for new leaders. Co-designer and co-founder Dao-Yi Chow said of the show, “[it’s about] the rise of leaders who shouldn’t be leaders. It’s very dystopian and George Orwellian 1984.We need to wake up and snap out of it.”
The stage featured a hero-less monument offering a glimpse of a wrecked and hopeless future, set on a stage of a mock factory line. Clothing was inspired by revolution, with Chow and Maxwell Osborne’s homegrown streetwear sensibilities offering a range of wearable options. We were offered an exclusive look backstage, a rare peek into what goes on before and after one of the hottest shows of the season.
