It’s the golden word in fashion these days — streetwear, a term that has been resurrected to become men’s wear’s newest trend. Among the standout designers in the category are Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School, a label that blends high and low sensibilities, merging a street point of view with high fashion.
“It’s all about convergence,” Chow said of their inspiration. “We play with proportions, shapes and things, mixing and matching from fashion, music and art, and pop culture in general. All those things make up the Public School guy.”
