Steven Alan Annex—the Tribeca flagship of the Steven Alan chain—offers upscale casualwear ideal for cultivating a youthful downtown look. The rustic Americana décor allows for a comfortable and focused shopping experience, while the merchandise of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear surpasses glitz and glamour in favor of effortless chic. Alongside breezy cotton and linen pieces from the store’s eponymous in-house line, the walls are lined with womenswear cult favorites such as Isabel Marant, Rachel Comey, and Acne, as well as emerging labels such as DemyLee and Lover that are represented by the brand’s showroom. Men can find refined basics for both work and play in the darker back half of the space. Accessories are sprinkled throughout the store: sturdy leather watches, architectural jewelry in everyday neutrals, and shoes ranging from leather sandals and athletic sneakers for men to basic black boots and casual strappy wedges for women. Counter shelves show off wares as diverse as bath products and magazines, evidence of Steven Alan’s evolution from one men’s shirt into a full-fledged lifestyle brand.
