New York-based designer and multi-brand retailer Steven Alan’s latest venture — an eyewear line comprised of 24 optical frames and 10 sunglass styles — launched this week, in conjunction with his impressive new optical website. Priced from $145  to $245, the collection boasts simple yet sophisticated silhouettes and colors for both men and women that speak to Alan’s trademark “urban New York sensibilities.” Placing emphasis on quality, the glasses are crafted from Japanese and Italian acetates that are considered to be some of the best in the world.
