Forget Santa: Steven Alan is coming to town. The man himself will be at the Wicker Park store this Thursday, from 5 to 8 p.m., to celebrate the launch of Clare Vivier x Steven Alan.
Vivier is the designer known for her clean, made-in-America women's accessories and bags. Her collaboration with Steven Alan brings quilted styles ranging from totes to—yes—fanny packs. And, gift alert: Shoppers who pick up any style worth $50 or more can get their goods monogrammed for free on Thursday.
Store manager Drew Allison tell us that Vivier will bring the Steven Alan exclusives, pictured above and below, as well as a slew of other styles that aren't normally offered at the shop. More scoop: The store has a bunch of styles newly marked down by 30 to 50 percent, as well as new arrivals from Norse Projects and Filson.
