Steven Alan Launches Eyewear
- Najib Benouar
Consider this a late-breaking addition to our roundup of the newest sunglasses of the season...
Steven Alan has just launched their first in-house optical line—comprised of about two dozen men’s sunglasses and prescription glasses—with on-site opticians at select stores (they’re starting out with their Tribeca shop). As expected, Alan has applied the same attention to detail and craftsmanship with these new frames as his highly regarded single-needle shirting and upcycled menswear staples. Which means the frames are made in a legendary acetate factory in Northern Italy and assembled in NYC—replete with custom details like rose gold and fully functional hardware (as opposed to the rivets and inserts that are merely decorative on most throwback sunglasses these days).
It’s a handsome lot of eyewear, so let’s get a look at a few of our faves.
