The Steven Alan store on 349 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn is self-consciously old-fashioned, but still a world away from its antique shop roots. The shop doesn't carry everything stocked by Steven Alan in Tribeca—it's just too small—but it maintains the same preppy, all-American aesthetic with items from Ralph Lauren's Double L collection, jeans from A.P.C., and antique silk dresses from New York-based line No.6. Then there are the fruits of two recent collaborations: Men's suede shoes by Alan with the brand Generic, plus dresses, tops, and a skirt Alan created with L.A. designer Sunshine & Shadow.
This location gives accessories a lot of love. A ginormous jewelry case dominates the room, offering Brooklynites a selection of new and vintage jewelry, sunglasses, and the odd Rolex. Winter hats and hand-dyed silk scarves, also results of Alan's partnership with Sunshine & Shadow, join men's bags by the hard-to-find Japanese brand Porter and hats by another Japanese company, Tsuyumi. And a mini apothecary stocks organic toner, shampoo and lotion from Patyka and Brooklyn's own McBride Beauty.
