Born and bred in New York, Pvblic shipped its first hand silk-screened shirt in 2002 and quickly became known as a pioneer and innovator. Synonymous with the urban-bohemian lifestyle, Pvblic’s goal is to make great fitting, good quality, distinctive clothing. Pvblic’s much loved T shirts are a big part of our artistic heritage. They reflect cultures from around the world and feature motifs that are hand drawn by our in-house team of artists and artisans.
Our Global Signature Concept
From the frigid Arctic to the tropics of Mexico, each season Pvblic draws inspiration from a different global region. The hangtag and stitching color on our logo label changes each season as well. These unique touches reflect what we're all about and make every Pvblic garment a limited edition.
Men's Line Designer Jayme Thaler
Designer Jayme Thaler was born in Brooklyn, where the local culture, style and music of the 70s and 80s were his first and strongest influences. Jayme studied at FIT in NYC and Chelsea College of Art & Design in London and has degrees in Graphic, Jewelry and Toy Design.
After several years in the toy industry, Jayme decided to start his own apparel and accessories company called Pvblic. His printing techniques were innovative and influenced design direction for larger, well-known brands. The line was carried in top boutiques nationwide, including Fred Segal (LA), Opening Ceremony (NYC) and Base (Miami) and as far away as Tokyo by United Arrows and Ships. Pvblic drew strong media attention from the likes of NYLON, Flaunt, Trace, VIBE, Title (Japan), Oyster, Cargo and Details.
The designer currently resides in New York City.
Women's Line Designer Tara Ocello
At the age of 5, Tara Ocello already knew how to thread a sewing machine. Growing up around New York City, her grandmother was a garment worker who often warned her of the perils of the fashion industry. Still, that fate seemed inevitably in her blood when she learned she was the only person in her graduating class accepted into New York's prestigious Parsons School of Design. The intense education she received there pushed her to win a coveted Thimble award before earning her degree in Fashion Design.
Tara's dark and quirky style, strong graphic design sense and hard-core work ethic has landed her top design positions at Christian Francis Roth, Marc Jacobs & Lucky Brand, to name a few. She takes inspiration from the fantastic worlds of Fairy Tales, the simple fun of retro Video Games, the nostalgia of Classic Rock, and the visual edge of Sci-Fi films.
Tara is proud to be able to make use of her more than ten years of career design experience to become a partner of her childhood friend and creative soul mate Jayme Thaler in his grand re-launch of Pvblic. As head of the Women's Collection, she adds her eclectic style and obsession with detail to the brand.
