Steven Alan's laid-back empire is most likely getting a new addition downtown. The Tribeca Citizen is reporting that three insiders have spilled the details on a future store solely for home goods and kid's clothes. While not officially confirmed, the news could mean the store will take up shop in the brand's vacant office space at 158 Franklin Street.
Alan himself mentioned the strong possibility of a new concept store last spring in an interview with WWD: "We have an office space on Franklin Street [in New York] that we're moving out of in July, so we're considering doing home there. It would be a mixture of vintage and new products, and eventually we'd also make our own things."
With that news, it seems that the Chelsea store's limited selection of home goods and kid's accessories was a successful test run.—Cambrey Thomas
