Where the runway meets the street

Alan has been tapped to design the Gild Hall Hotel staff’s attire at the just-opened hotel near Wall Street. He took inspiration from the financiers who populate the neighborhood in creating a men’s ensemble of a worsted wool blazer, button-down vest and slacks with a reverse seam. The woman’s look is the so-called “Banker’s Dress,” and everyone dons a silk skinny tie. “There has to be a great attention to performance of the item as they will stand a lot of daily abuse,” pointed out Alan. “My goal was to create items that were…very functional.” Via WWD
