A woman can only buy so many boxy blouses in boyish plaids. But now she may sleep surrounded by them. Designer Steven Alan has translated his perpetual Hudson Valley weekend aesthetic to a line of home goods for West Elm. Alan partnered with “weavers in India, potters in Nicaragua, and papier-mâché experts in Haiti” on the striped, soothing collection. He used “techniques that have been passed down for generations” to “celebrate artisanship in a contemporary way.” It is the kind of apparently ethical, mostly affordable collabo a certain strain of Brooklyn Yuppie is literally powerless before. Even the preferred orthography is hypnotic: steven alan for west elm. So get yourself a cold-pressed juice. Watch Alan collaborate with hand-loomers in India. Let the righteous acquisitiveness flow through you.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
