The Clothes: If Erin Wasson were a dude, she’d be decked out in Public School. This is the wardrobe for LES kids who are trying to outdress their equally hip friends. From leather moto vests with cuffed skinny jeans and collar-less shirts to super slim cut suits, Public School makes the best clothes for people trying to look equal amounts cool and I-don’t-give-a-fuck. One look, and a boxy black button up jacket paired with super skinny jeans, stood out from the rest because of it’s unexpected cut. The last look, a dramatic white tuxedo jacket, was something you could expect to see on Peter Brant II, or at least someone channeling his prep-school party boy look.
The Hair & Makeup: Slicked hair and side parts.
The Soundtrack: House, Techno, Pop, Electro.
The Vibe: Sunday afternoon discotheque.
The Front Row: Guys, guys, and guys. It seemed like every Supreme-wearing, camera-toting, sneaker freak dude was in attendance.
Celebrity We’d Most Like to See Wearing this Collection: Jared Leto.
WTF Moment: Model with forehead tattoo, you do your thing.
What The Linesheet Said: “For the Spring/Summer 13 season Public School looked to classic architectural forms to help frame the collection both historically and figuratively. We examined the concept of “structure” and how it exists contextually within society. We were very interested how a delicate balance and network of relationships helped to form structure and provide a base in which all law and order was supported. We extended this concept into our collection looking at the delicate tailoring and fabrics, which helped to create the strong solid form we were envisioning. To emphasize this concept we took to build out a set of 15 identical molded wall panels that start off white and gradually fade into a natural grain to demonstrate our interpretation of structure in an unbalanced symmetry.”
