New York’s Public School and their 2010 spring collection gets the official unveiling here. The brand who has maintained a consistently dark palette to their works forges ahead with their penchant for highly detailed works. Often a central theme, this includes the pairing of multiple materials to achieve a certain degree of subtle contrast.
Our muse each season is an imaginary character by the name of Eddie Red. He’s a young NYC hustler from the mid ’70s. We begin every season with his imaginary guidance and fashion insight. This S/S 10 season takes inspiration from Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man. We witness Red’s journey through a hostile city, meandering through his many obstacles and surviving through his anonymity. Its probably our most progressive season in terms of experimentation of fabrics. For spring we wanted something tough but still flowing and drape-y. Mercerized jerseys, 16gg sweater knits are accompanied by washed leathers and bleached denim. The silhouette remains strong and the neck line built high with an exaggerated slim bottom.
