Fashion Boutique Steven Alan Coming to Cady's Alley
Steven Alan, the casual fashion boutique for both men and women, is set to open its first D.C. location in September in Cady's Alley within the courtyard that features Kafe Leopold and L2 Lounge. The 670-square-foot store will be located in retail space, once occupied by Muleh and, before that, Alessi.
Begun in New York City in 1994, Steven Alan showcases first-time designers and launched its own line in 1999. As a leader in casual wear, the business offers "modern versions of classic ready-to-wear standards for both men and women," it says.
“Steven Alan is one of the more innovative urban retailers we have recently met,” said Philippe Lanier, vice president of EastBanc, Inc., which along with Jamestown Properties, announced the leasing deal. “The store’s interest in becoming a component of Cady's Alley helps solidify our desire to enhance and complement the design focus of the block with innovative retailers developing a brand and culture around their customer. We believe that shoppers will find the Steven Alan experience one that they visit often.”
The Steven Alan lease agreement adds to the growing style mix of such Georgetown west side retailers as Babette, Bonobos, Calypso St. Barth (opening early spring 2014), CB2, City Sports, Intermix, Relish and West Elm.
