Heads Up! Broad Brims for Fall 2012

Edited by

We were already sniffing out this wide-brimming phenomenon earlier this week, but when Marc Jacobs sent out magnanimous furry top hats, this trend got a head above the rest. Whether floppy like at Rachel Zoe, cowboy like at Nicholas K, or golden like at Samantha Pleet, the brims are thick set to go all the way around.

How Steven Alan Gifts Himself for the Holidays

Edited by

We caught up with Steven Alan today at the FashInvest event at FIT, where he spoke of the route he took to owning his eponymous powerhouse stores first in TriBeCa, then fusing a wholesale showroom for independent designers to his business, then designing lines for men and women, and now investing in other entrepreneurial ventures. Oh, and he’s got stores all over NY and CA. He does it all with grace and success, and deserves to gift himself something special for the holidays. We were curious: What would he want from his own store for the holidays? If you know this, then you’ll know what any dapper self-starting gentleman will want.

Boutique Critique:: Début: Look 3

Edited by

Début is the kind of shop where some jewelry hangs on hangers. Designers are making such radically new creations that owner Lisa Weiss must often come up with creative ways to display them. Those displays are ever changing because the average length of time she carries one designer is about three seasons. In order to maintain her store’s philosophy, she cannot get too loyal to one designer. She must live by the essence of if you love it, let it go… What comes back is the success the designers see upon graduating from Début, knowing where they kicked it all off.

Own a before-they-were-famous designer piece for 10% off! When you shop at Début, just mention FashionIndie.

Boutique Critique:: Début: Look 1

Edited by

Tucked away on the north end of Mulberry Street, just above Houston, lives a petite boutique lined with the freshest names in design. Début is sparsely arranged to feel like a gallery, built to give each designer a proper artist’s display. Storeowner Lisa Weiss frequently hears from new customers, I’ve passed by it so many times and just never came in! I wasn’t entirely sure it was a store. Let her hear that no more. This incredible little-known and selectively merchandised store sparked my desire to explore the best boutiques in New York, and take you shopping with me. Piece by piece. Designer by designer. Through five original looks. One look each day. Every week. From now on. This is the Début of Boutique Critique.

Like what you see? Shop at Début and mention FashionIndie to get 10% off!

Take a Second Look – Onia

Edited by

Take a Second Look – Onia“A product that guys could wear not just to swim in, but to lounge in, walk in, run in, etc.” This is Onia, the newest most functional yet stylish guys swim shorts to hit our market. After working for Steven Alan for four years on the production side of the business, Carl Cunow took his valuable experience and knowledge and developed swim shorts that could be worn wherever and whenever to do whatever. “I went out on my own and decided to start Onia because I could never find a pair of swim shorts that I liked, ones that looked like a regular pair of shorts,” Cunow said.  Made with a special Cotton/Nylon blend imported from Japan and Korea, these shorts are not too long or short, don’t bunch up in uncomfortable places and dry quickly after a nice swim. Designed for comfort, they stay as far away from the multi-colored floral prints as possible. It is no wonder that Onia is already a bit hit. Don’t be the last one standing in garish, loud swim shorts.  Check out more of Onia showing at (capsule) Las Vegas and right here after the jump. (Santho Goonewardene)

Steven Alan: Fall 2009 Collection

Steven Alan: Fall 2009 Collection

I am normally a big Steven Alan supporter, but I don’t know how I feel about this latest Fall collection. I love Steven for the colors that are usually used. The collections always seemed to be bright and unique no matter what the season was, but this Fall gets a bit dark and practical. The dullled down earthy palette has me thinking J Crew not Steven Alan.
