Since its inception in 2008, Public School committed itself to bringing a high-fashion inclination to its brand while retaining streetwear as its core. In the early years, this concept was almost too ahead of its time, and while there was a niche fanbase that applauded the blending of the two worlds, most people simply didn't get it. But designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne have proven to be aesthetic prophets, as their original philosophy has pioneered that now crowded segment where menswear and streetwear intersect. Public School has been instrumental in fusing the runway and the streets with collections that have won both critical acclaim (their trophy cabinet must be stuffed at this point) and customers. High fashion may be enjoying a current infatuation with streetwear, but Public School has been doing it since Day One.
