With a modern rendition of Woody Guthrie's American classic "This Land Is Your Land" filling the space, the NYC-based brand's latest show started off with one certain infamously relevant red cap - with a classic Public School twist: "Make America New York." It's clear that designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne weren't pulling any punches.
The collection itself was defiantly influenced by America as a whole, both rural and urban. Tartan (arguably one of the prints of the season) and quilted button downs, paisley patchwork were met with tracksuits, bombers, and hoodies featuring nods to basketball legend Michael Jordan. Deconstruction was a major player with both the All-American staples, pant suits and puffer jackets. On top of that, proportion play was very very strong: with either shrunken or oversized (or for that matter both working at the same time) dominating many of the looks. All of it however, was signature Public School athletic street. Just as this land is your land and this land is my land, this collection was made for you and me.
