Last night I attended the launch event for the Public School x Jordan Brand collaboration at Terminal 23 featuring a presentation conceptualized by Snarkitecture. The 7-piece collection consists of two footwear silhouettes along with an apparel collection to complement the shoes. A favorite of the Public School founders, the Air Jordan XII design exemplifies the collaboration’s superior execution with a grey nubuck body that pays homage to the trademark PSNY color palette. The Jordan Horizon, a new Air Jordan model, includes a knitted upper mixed with PSNY details.
“For years, Public School has been pushing the limits with its play on color, proportion, and styling. We are continuously looking to create modern silhouettes from classic forms,” said Maxwell Osborne, co-founder of Public School. “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.”
Once again congrats to my friends Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School for the amazing collection! My favorite pieces are the puffer jacket and the 12s but sadly the sneakers don’t come in small sizes! The Public School x Jordan collection will be available on Jordan.com and select Jordan retail stores on December 12th. Don’t sleep!
