NYFW: Three lines we love

Public School
Public School’s spring 2013 collection titled “Structure” combines casual sportswear with tailored clothing in a fresh and salable way. Designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborn maintain a neutral palette and bring excitement to the collection by playing with various lengths.

Pattern mixing was perfectly executed by Mark McNairy in his spring 2013 New Amsterdam collection. Dots, daisies and animal prints were prevalent throughout, bringing a kitschy sophistication to spring.

John Bartlett
John Bartlett’s spring 2013 “Plant Based Man” was created entirely out of linen, fusing eco-friendly fabrics with fashion. Bartlett was inspired by exotic travel from destinations like Mykonos and Mumbai. Key colors like watermelon, aloe and coffee set the tone for this beautifully relaxed collection.
