  • Video: Memoryhouse at FNO
    September 27th, 2011 | Events, Have a Seat, Sites + Sounds

    The inspiration behind Memoryhouse, a Toronto-based indie pop group principally comprised of Evan Abeele (guitar) and Denise Nouvion (vocals), comes from British-German composer Max Richter’s experimental album of the same name. Richter’s “post classical” work – minimalist in its use of ambient sounds and voices – as well as Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay “A Room [...]

  • Bluma Project Bags
    July 31st, 2011 | Have a Seat, New Arrivals

    Bluma Project began in January 2010 with the start of a Rwandan cooperative. Owner Beth Schaeffer teaches the women, already known for their basket weaving, how to make jewelry providing them with a new skillset which lends to a more sustainable income.

  • Sylvie Ganter and Atelier Cologne
    December 15th, 2010 | Events, Have a Seat, New Arrivals

    “Home is not where you live, but what you carry when you go. I know that when I travel anywhere I can take it with me.” The inspiration behind Sylvie Ganter’s fragrance line Atelier Cologne is the idea of home. Sylvie went through everything from outdoor lifestyle magazines, panoramic landscapes, interior décor books, to common [...]

  • Like Clockwork: Mast Brothers and Their Chocolate Factory in Brooklyn
    August 16th, 2010 | Have a Seat

    Or like sand through the hourglass? Perhaps like the shadows of a sundial would be more appropriate? Whatever it is, the tradition of cacao cultivation for making chocolate has gone on since the Mayans and the Aztecs to a new wave of Chocolatiers. Mast Brothers is one of only six bean- to-bar chocolate makers in [...]

  • Have a Seat: LEMLEM
    July 14th, 2009 | Have a Seat, New Arrivals

    With a resume that includes philanthropy, modeling, and motherhood, it is no surprise that Liya Kebede’s collection of women’s scarves and children’s clothes, lemlem, is special. While on a recent trip to her native Ethiopia, Liya was inspired to create the line after visiting traditional weavers who no longer had a market for their goods. [...]

  • Have a Seat: SA chats with Bodkin
    April 24th, 2009 | Have a Seat

    Bodkin, designed by thirty two year old Eviana Hartman, is helping to shape our notions of “eco” fashion.  Though still a small niche (one that includes Organic by John Patrick and Edun), these designers focus on fashion and style; the environmental impact is an integral aspect, rather than the exclusive purpose.  These clothes no longer [...]

  • Field Trip!!!
    January 27th, 2009 | Have a Seat

    We traveled to the Alden factory in eastern Massachusetts for a tour of the operations and to work on some custom styles for the Steven Alan store. The day started with a (very early) morning commute on Metro North to Westport Connecticut, where Mr. Floyd Landis, head of Alden’s North American Sales, met us at [...]

  • Steven Alan Talks With Duskin
    January 20th, 2009 | Have a Seat

    Every time I hear the crunch of sidewalk salt under my shoes, I dream about how great spring will be. And this means throwing my puffy coat onto a funeral pyre and getting super excited for one of the new lines we will be carrying–Duskin. Duskin’s designer Stephanie Tran keeps a blog that is keeping [...]

    Brookelynn Starnes started Cloak & Dagger, a women’s clothing line, in 2006. Calling upon her interest in vintage fashion and her styling background, the line has continued to develop an identity in the independent young-designer market. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Starnes also consults on the men’s and women’s collections for Libertine. This fall we [...]

  • SA Talks with The Generic Man
    October 27th, 2008 | Have a Seat

    Last fall Kevin Carney and Brandon Day came to Steven Alan in New York to talk to us about their shoe line, The Generic Man. In good traveling salesman style (a long trip from L.A.), they unpacked their wares and dazzled us with The Generic Man designs. We’ve been a fan of their shoes for [...]
