The latest news from the front regarding the Brad and Angelina of the international set has it that they may have already tied the knot. French daily *L’Est Republicain* is quoting a reliable source close to someone who claims to have attended our boy Nic’s secret nuptials last week at the Elysée palace. Apparently he sealed the deal with supermodel Carla Bruni after presenting her with a $30,000 white gold Dior ring.
*In our never-ending thirst for knowledge, we sat down for a few words of wisdom with Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, veterans of urban education and creators of Public School, the rugged, multi-purpose streetwear label that hits stores mid month.*
**Kempt**: What is the inspiration behind Public School?
**Chow**: New York City—of course—and anyone who’s ever survived public school. Our man is someone who’s well-traveled and appreciates details.
**Kempt**: So than who is your ideal model for Public School?
**Osborne**: We are our best models.
**Kempt**: How modest. What parts of New York inspired this line—and don’t say your apartment?
**Chow**: I don’t think it’s any one place. It’s more of the idea of New York, all the five boroughs. Moving around the city and just collecting that energy everywhere you go.
**Kempt**: What are your favorite haunts in the five boroughs?
**Chow**: Max probably goes out more than me—but Bar Pitti and Freeman’s for sure.
**Osborne**: Naw, naw—I don’t go out that much. I just go with the wind. Someone tells me something’s going on, I’m gonna go.
