PUBLIC SCHOOL

Public School’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection was an exercise in layering—something New Yorker’s should be taking notes on now that the weather is dropping to single digits. There were long zip-up jersey sportswear dresses, roomy ribbed pullovers on top of a dress worn over a jacket, sweatshirts over sweatshirts, and blanket capes. The urban mood is having a real moment. Some of the best pieces here were those that touched on Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow’s menswear tailoring affinity, like a simple black blazer thrown over a white button-down shirt dress with a ribbed lamé dress and fringe pants. A zippered black nylon coat dress, with what looked like carabiners adorning each side, and a magenta wool overcoat should be editorial magnets. You’ll have to wait to get your hands on this extra-warm looking collection, but in the meantime, you might as well take some styling tips.
