steven alan has become a bit of a staple in my wardrobe, particularly since they opened up a few shops in san francisco, which i frequently visit on the hunt for luxurious basics. the formula might be simple, but it’s always done right. and this season at the fall 2013 presentation, there was a certain cool girl aesthetic that got me yearning to do one of those wardrobe clean-outs and pare things down to only the easiest of pieces. i loved the casual undone vibe in some of the slouchier silhouettes, and really appreciated a particular leather skirt paired with a pinstripe blazer, and was falling all over myself for those cute velvet pieces and fun riding hats. the collection was definitely understated, but certainly one i’ll be waiting for in the stores!
