Is Public School Planning to Debut Womenswear at J.Crew?


CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winnersDao-Yi and Maxwell Osborne – the designers behind the menswear label Public School – quite possibly could be building up their brand with the $300,000 prize … and a womenswear collection for J.Crew (one of the fund’s sponsors) it seems.

On November 18th, the brand Instagrammed a photo of the design duo pouring over swatches with the caption, “@jcrew x @publicschoolnyc is officially underway… So this is what it feels like to have a fabric and color library.”

Lucky magazine noticed that some of the swatches were striped with lime green and neon pink or bore the appearance of a heart and guessed that Public School would be making their womenswear debut for the retailer—and Tweeted as such. And the designers all but confirmed their speculation was on the money with a Retweet and added four exclamation points.

Sounds promising, right? We’ll be sure to update you as we hear more.
