Twice a year, Steven Alan hosts a sample sale in Tribeca.  And if any of you have been to the designer’s sales, you’ll know how massive it is.  So much merchandise, including his own label as well as a slew of other brands.  I always find his sales overwhelming.  We checked it out last night during press preview.

The discount is 30-75 percent off a wide selection of men’s and women’s collections from Steven Alan.  Other designers include Cardigan, Generic Surplus, Onia, Relwen, Rogan, Ulla Johnson and more, much more…  The Steven Alan stuff is downstairs for both men and women.  On the main floor, you’ll find the other designers as well as handbags.

Here’s the lowdown on pricing:  Steven Alan spring dresses are $115; fall dresses are $85; women’s long-sleeved shirts are $68; blazers $75; pants $75; skirts $55; cotton tees are $55; coats $125; Steven Alan beach bags are going from $89 and $115. For men, the popular cotton shirts have gone up a bit and are on sale for $78, pants are $75.  The Mister came with me this time looking for a light-weight windbreaker we spotted at the Steven Alan store in Brooklyn.  While he didn’t find that jacket, he did find a great selection of outerwear, including a classic wax cotton Barbour for $149 (made in England).  Other labels we spotted:  Ulla Johnson linen pants from $110-120, blazer at $150, silk tops at $50-$95; a whole rack of Chen Studio short shorts for $40; Holy Tee knits at $65; Rogan jeans for $75 and Earnest Sewn for $69.  The selection for women’s shoes were so-so (Marisausa going for $25; Modern Vintage boots at $75; Pare Gabiatas for $39 and a couple of pairs of A Detacher boots for $199).  There were some great Rag & Bone boots for $199 but the sizing was limited.
