Last night, the Barneys team and a few fashionable friends gathered for an intimate dinner at The Lion in the West Village to celebrate the NYC-based duo behind Public School, Dao Yi-Chow and Maxwell Osborne, and the launch of their Spring 2015 womenswear collection.

Fall 2014 marked the brand’s seamless transition into women’s clothing, with an assortment of elevated, tailored separates in Public School’s signature muted palette. This spring, the CFDA Fashion Award-winning designers did it again with a clean, structured collection that captures the street-smart aura of the Public School woman.

Peruse the photos below featuring Va$htie Kola, Grace Mahary, Martha Hunt, Jenné Lombardo, Mia Moretti, Kelly Framel, Chioma Nnadi, Tomoko Ogura and Molly Nutter (some of whom happen to be donning this season’s black and white looks) and then raise a glass to to Public School’s past, present, and—judging by their latest endeavor—promising future.
