Steven Alan stayed true to his classic cool aesthetic for Spring 2012, showing a collection filled with chic basics: cropped and wide-leg trousers, colorblocked tunic tops, and breezy plaid dresses. The presentation was a refreshing nod to classics with a twist thanks to modern details like a back seam slit and the most notable look, a perfectly tailored checked suit, equally fitting for a day at work — or relaxation in the Hamptons. Leather brogues, low-wedge wraparound sandals, and sweet simple satchels complete the classic cool collection. Get the quick lowdown below, then click the slideshow to see the rest of the collection.
