TOUS LES GARÇONS ET LES FILLES
New York: While many who show at Lincoln Center try to match the big stage with bold, flashy clothing, Steven Alan opted to keep the mood refreshingly normal for his first appearance at the esteemed venue. The post-pop musicians of the 60s were his muses, in particular, the French chanteuse Françoise Hardy. Like Hardy’s inimitable model of effortlessness, the collection had a warm folk bent in the cashmere turtlenecks, natty peacoats and leather knapsacks of a travellin’ man; while schoolboy blazers and too-short trousers echoed the androgynous uniform of the era’s artists and hipsters. All were mixed in disheveled layers that heightened the nonchalant attitude. Urban or rural, man or woman, the collection’s admirable ease stood as testament to the timelessness of American sportswear.—Nivara Xaykao
