Stash It

The Travel Brush


The classic Mason Pearson hairbrush is worthy of the hype, but the travel-size version profoundly disappoints. In search of a superior option, we tried out the $25 mini oval brush from hairstylist to the pros Harry Josh—he’s handled the coifs of Lily Aldridge, Carolyn Murphy, and Rose Byrne—and we’re happy to report that our locks have never looked better. We won’t be leaving the house without this small but mighty (and, importantly, painless) brush, which tucks nicely into totes and evening bags alike. ($25, dermstore.com)

Stomp It

Real-Deal Clogs


A woman named Lotta from Stockholm has a brand named—wait for it—Lotta from Stockholm. She specializes in no-nonsense clogs with the perfect amount of flair that are ideal for clomping around the city and that cost hundreds of dollars less than those No. 6 boots you’ve seen on every thirtysomething in Brooklyn. (We love, but enough is enough.) While perusing her Web site, make sure to check out Lotta’s $75 sheepskins, ideal for cozying up wooden dining chairs. ($82, lottafromstockholm.com)

Button Up

The 70s Shirt


Have you supported an emerging designer lately? The Seoul-based brand Andersson Bell debuted in 2014 but is only now gracing our shores—a very positive development. The brand’s backstory is elusive—the creative director prefers to remain anonymous—but the general ethos is all about a Korean interpretation of Scandinavian design. The results are compelling, particularly this stylish twill shirt. Cuffed sleeves and a very jaunty collar provide serious 70s vibes—perfect for spring days spent playing dress-up as a minor character in Once upon a Time … in Hollywood. ($270, net-a-porter.com)

Great Danes

A Munthe Dress


Copenhagen Fashion Week—the talk of the fashion crowd just a few short weeks ago—had us hankering for Danish design. Fortunately, Munthe, one of the city’s buzziest brands, has just landed at Net-a-Porter, which means that an international flight is no longer needed to stock up on their well-priced printed dresses. (Moderate bummer, but an overall positive development.) With billowing sleeves and a ruffled hemline, the Emmanuel dress offers plenty of drama but is destined for the office as well as a dinner. Made of viscose silk, it pairs well with boots and tights for now, and it will transition beautifully into bare-leg season, when the time (and temps) are right. ($465, net-a-porter.com)

Planet-Friendly

The Wool Overcoat


When finance executive Vanessa Barboni Hallik pondered a career change, her interest in sustainability led her to the fashion industry—one of the world’s worst environmental offenders. Enter Another Tomorrow, her new brand of ready-to-wear that exclusively sources ethically produced materials and implements environmentally conscious business practices. Creative director Jane Chung, formerly of DKNY, has developed a smashing array of timeless separates intended to be worn for many years to come. Among our favorites? The draped overcoat crafted from merino wool, which uses double-face construction to especially luxurious effect. ($1,375; anothertomorrow.co)
