Downtown prepster mainstay Steven Alan is expanding its empire. In addition to the quintessential collared shirt and various other straightforward wardrobe staples, Steven Alan will soon be home to handbags. The retailer, which has outposts in NYC and California, is launching a capsule handbag collection come fall. The totes will be available in six different styles, all of which boast a distinctly equestrian vibe. “Classic shapes, such as hobos, satchels and shoulder bags, all feature bridled leather and brass hardware,” says Women’s Wear Daily.
The foray isn’t Alan’s first into bags. The designer teamed with Virgin America to create a limited edition bag for travel. Pitched as the perfect carry-on, the bag ($777) is currently stocked in limited supply at Alan’s stores on each coast. Alan’s women’s bags are to be priced substantially less; they’ll range from $398 to $565.
