In a time when normcore is the new normal, Steven Alan is incorporating more conceptual ideas into his basics-driven collection.

 

The concept for spring came from space, an idea that was evident in the all-white layered look with a banded collar shirt in cotton linen poplin that was reminiscent of astronaut wear, as well as a button-down shirt with a celestial star pattern.

 

Apart from these out-of-this-world elements, the rest of the collection was solid and centered around a clean assortment of blazers, T-shirts, polos and Alan’s trademark fitted shirts. “It’s like your dad’s shirt, but in smaller proportions,” Alan said.

 

Another surprise came from the use of Japanese fabrics, a big trend this season, which he used in ultrathin chambray shirts and light-wash jeans.

 

Based on the number of collaborations Alan engages in every season — Vans and Common Project sneakers for fall, for example — it appears as if others in the fashion industry also believe in his down-to-earth aesthetic.
