What You Should Know About the Public School x Jordan Brand Collection

just in time for this weekend’s release

by Taj Reed

Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne are the busiest guys in men’s fashion. The duo continue to land critical acclaim for their Public School line, and earlier this year were appointed to the helm of DKNY’s creative house. You’d think that’d be enough responsibility to keep the two occupied, but not if Jordan Brand is on the request line.

Continuing a partnership that is now three iterations deep, Dao-Yi and Maxwell were tapped to design a seven-piece collection for "His Airness" that includes a range of tailored performance pieces and two footwear silhouettes —the grey nubuck XII is so buttery. “For years, Public School has been pushing the limits with its play on color, proportion, and styling,” reflects Osborne. “The Jordan Brand collaboration allowed us to apply this same philosophy and create pieces inspired by Jordan’s iconic designs, but through a Public School lens.”

The Jordan x Public School collection will be available on Jordan.com and select Jordan retail stores this Saturday, December 12.
