Daryl K Returns With a Capsule for Steven Alan
Streetwear designer Daryl Kerrigan, aka Daryl K, closed her NYC in March and said she was "taking a break from retail for the time being." In October, she launched a lower-priced line with Urban Outfitters, with items priced between $59 and $139. But it looks like her signature high-end line is making a comeback!
Kerrigan has resurfaced with a resort 2013 capsule collection that's now available in Steven Alan boutiques and on their website.
As Kerrigan explains on the Steven Alan blog: "We just bumped into one another and hadn't seen each other for a long, long time. Steven knew I'd just closed my store and asked me what I was doing, 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?' We just met up within a few days and planned it."
Items in the collection include a seersucker shirt in black and coral ($248), a stretch silk blazer ($565), stretch silk jodhpurs ($370), a tie-dye dress ($525), and a version of the famous Daryl K leather leggings ($795).

On returning to retail, Kerrigan said: "I've run my own business for a long time and handled way too many aspects of it, out of necessity. I'm really enjoying working with Steven because what I want to do is create the clothes and style the shoots. I would rather not take care of every aspect of the business. That was fine to start, and it's a great learning experience. My collab with Steven works well also because it allows me to have direct contact with the customer, which has always been very valuable to me as a designer."
