>> Steven Alan showed a cozy layered collection for Fall 2011, and it couldn’t come at a more welcome time for the attendees hustling in from 17 mph winds outside the Chelsea Pier 59 Studios earlier this morning. Alan's display of oversized blazer coats, crewneck sweaters, shift dresses, and trousers gave an old-school collegiate feel reminiscent of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Wine, blue, oatmeal, navy, and hunter green made up the color palette, while classic dot prints and demure floral prints added texture to the collection. The standout print, a bold multi-colored horizontal stripe pattern, made its way onto wool shift dresses, skirts, and a coat. And show stylist Sarah Foldenauer finished off the preppy cool looks with crushable floppy fedoras, covetable ribbed tights, diminutive cross-body bags, and wedge booties.
