While a lot of major home-grown designers keep trying to deconstruct the formula for young, chic American clothing, Steven Alan
seems to have nailed it. His men's and women's collections have steadily grown over the years from his cornerstone suiting, button-downs, and shirt-dresses into an entire world of relaxed and wearable luxury. And this latest fall '11
delivery was right on cue. From a gorgeous tailored women's suit (so Kate Jackson à la Charlie's Angels) to a long and lean pair of floral trousers, the chicest '60s-inspired leopard mini, and a new batch of shoes and bags we're pretty much gagging over, this is the kind of clothing every woman is going to want to own and wear a lot. Just click through the slideshow and you'll know exactly what we mean.
