The Big Apple has planted a very fashionable seed on Knox in the form of Steven Alan, a New York-based pioneer known for its modern interpretation of classic style and knack for discovering emerging designers first. “We thought it was important to open the shop in a casual neighborhood where customers would feel free to stop in and shop or just browse around,” says store manager Jonas Joiner. Taking up residence in a 1930s building complete with concrete floors and exposed brick walls, the 1,877-square-foot space houses the Steven Alan brand, along with collections for men and women from names such as Clare Vivier, Laurence Dolige, Mansur Gavriel and Sea. “All of the home and lifestyle items we carry are made in the U.S., and all are partnerships and friends of Steven,” Joiner says. Organic jams made in Brooklyn, Shinola watches crafted in Detroit, Filson luggage and treasures from Colin Adrian Glass, Coyuchi and Frau Tonis can be counted amongst the carefully curated stock.  3205 Knox St., 214.306.4849;
