Steven Alan has announced the launch of Steven Alan Optical. As the namesake of Men’s and Women’s lines which now encompass clothing, shoes, bags, watches and belts, Steven Alan’s expansion into the eyewear category is an obvious natural progression.
The quality of design remains constant throughout the mostly unisex collection using Italian and Japanese acetates, polarized glass lenses, classic rivets and hardware functionality, and custom finishes and engraving. 24 optical eyewear and 10 sun wear styles are offered in various color-ways with a new set of seasonally driven styles being added on yearly. Optical pairs including prescription lenses retail for $195, sunglasses retail for $145, and prescription sunglasses retail for $245.
This Collector's Edition is limited to 845 copies, each numbered and signed by Nobuyoshi Araki. It consists of three volumes, enticingly hand-bound in the Japanese tradition and packaged in a wooden box, featuring Araki’s selection of his favorite bondage photos from over his entire career.
