Steven Alan, the downtown designer, is a master at paring-down designs while charging up. If you’ve visited a Steven Alan boutique, you’ve no doubt experienced the sticker-shock of realizing that a super-casual boyfriend style shirt is nearly $200.
Premium pricing aside, we love his new sneaker collaboration. On Friday, he launched Nike Sportswear x Steven Alan, a collection of artfully updated Nike sneakers that retail in his stores for $115-145. “I wanted the shoes to be functional without looking tech-y,” Alan explained to Style.com. “Just subtle changes, to make something you’ll love and wear.”
