In a visual community like the one we’re all a part of, pictures are such a powerful way to communicate. They not only inspire us, but they give us a glimpse into the worlds of our favorite artists, designers and makers. I love the way Instagram has introduced me to so many new artists and given me a peek inside their studio lives, so I thought it would be fun to expand that idea into a new column for Design*Sponge: A Day In The Life. Every other week we’ll give you a peek inside the daily lives of some of our favorite creatives, from people like The Sartorialist, The Brothers Mueller, Ariele Alasko, John Derian and today, one of my personal favorites, Steven Alan. Steven Alan is one of my style icons and he has created a brand and shop that I trust without question as my go-to source for basics worth investing in. When he’s not creating guest collections and opening new shops across the country, Steven fills his day with a range of inspiring to-dos, like reviewing books for his home shop, meetings with his team at Tiny’s and walking through TriBeCa for ideas and visual inspiration. Thanks so much to Steven for sharing a glimpse of his daily life with us. xo, grace
