New York: Steven Alan has recently taken a huge step beyond the washed reverse-seam shirts that made him a household name — honing in on a lived-in aesthetic that is as worldly as it is masculine. For F/W 11, the designer found inspiration in Glen Denny’s photographs of Yosemite National Park in the late 1960s, a time when revolution and tradition clashed. The genius of Alan’s clothes is that they perfectly fuse both elements – directional details and rebellious styling with a good dose of classic menswear. The folksy element of the season came through loud and clear with layered campsite-ready looks: hiking boots, chunky turtleneck sweaters and vivid puffer coats.
