News__ Daryl K for Steven Alan

December 12, 2012 | By

Daryl K may have closed the doors to her iconic New York store, but she's not going anywhere

"In the 90′s when the nightclub scene was really big, the club kids and the drag queens wore my clothes," Daryl K says of her designs. Fast forward twenty-plus years and the New York City-based designer has created a capsule collection for Steven Alan. Tailoring lightweight fabrics like stretch silk, the Resort 2013 collection features pieces that look tailored but feel comfortable. In addition to a cardigan, stretch silk blazer and jodhpur pants, Daryl K for Steve Alan includes two pairs of booties, seer sucker shirts and a tie dye dress.

As far as Daryl K and Steven Alan pairing together, the collaboration came together organiclly. The two ran into one another at the met for the opening of the Schiaparelli and Prada. "Steven knew I’d just closed my store and asked me what I was doing," Daryl K says. " I told him ” I’m just  figuring it out,” because I didn’t have any immediate plans, and he was like, “Hey, why don’t we do something together?”

The Daryl K for Steven Alan Resort '13 collection is available now. Check it out below.
