Public School opens first retail store at Howard St.
Public School Spring/Summer 2019 New York show up on Howard St in Chinatown: The Permanent Interim Installation On Display.
“This will be our first retail store and this is a soft launch of the space.”
Throughout the location were mannequins dressed in the new collection — although Chow said the description “needs an asterisk by ‘new.’
Everything is recycled, upcycled or dead stock,” he said, and is intended to represent our new philosophy.”
“A piece of ground that belonged to them, on which they could plant their feet, permanency.”
“It’s very much the foundation and our past and then looking into the future,” Osborne added.
The collection reflected that with a clear example being a supersharp black suit with built-in cargo pockets and statement zippers.
The designers also created a new PSNY logo that was another nod to their new beginning.
When the store opens later this month, Chow said the line will be sold directly to consumers and this collection will be available for preorder with delivery in September.
