Another Tomorrow

When Vanessa Barboni Hallik launched Another Tomorrow, in early 2020, the fashion industry finally got the combination of sustainability and style that had proved so elusive. While the brand does offer T-shirts made of 100 percent organic cotton, the designs are mostly dressier affairs, made of ethically sourced fabric and accompanied by a QR code, which details each piece’s journey along the supply chain. Despite the fact that Another Tomorrow emerged just before the Sweatpant Era, its early success has proved the power of responding to a pressing need. Now it has opened its first boutique, on Bleecker Street, in Manhattan’s West Village. Fashion aside, it is also home to an assortment of books, and later this fall, expect invitations to events and panels. ( —Ashley Baker


Next of Kin

Archie Panjabi has a way of making herself memorable in secondary roles, be it in Bend It Like Beckham or The Good Wife. In the TV series Next of Kin, she’s landed the lead, and it couldn’t be more deserved. She plays Mona Shirani, a doctor and second-generation Pakistani immigrant in London who is married to an English businessman and seems fully assimilated and unassailably proper. That serenity is shattered when Mona’s brother is murdered in Pakistan, a tragedy that turns her family’s life upside down and traps Mona between British intelligence and extremists planning an attack. Next of Kin has the suspense and sophistication of Homeland and a heroine who is above suspicion, until she isn’t. ( —Alessandra Stanley


Defender Trophy Edition

Deep-dyed Land Rover enthusiasts are a notoriously passionate—and intrepid—bunch. Which is why one can safely bet that the Defender Trophy Edition, newly available in the U.S., and with a limited production of only 220 vehicles, will not linger on the market for long. The bespoke vehicle, modeled on the Defender 110 P400 X-Dynamic SE, is customized from tip to tail with overland adventurers in mind. Off-piste explorers will celebrate the cold-climate, air-suspension, and advanced off-road-capability packs—the latter a built-in system that actively monitors challenging driving conditions and responds accordingly—not to mention the tow-hitch receiver. What’s more, it comes with an invitation for two to participate in the off-road U.S. Trophy Competition at the Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, North Carolina, this fall, with a chance to move on to the final, ultimate adventure competition, at Eastnor Castle, in Britain’s Herefordshire. Buckle up! ($90,000; —David Foxley



When everyone else is lugging a cumbersome weekend bag over her shoulder, why not be remembered as the woman with the elegant carrying case? Blame it on the lockdowns, but for many of us, travel has assumed new levels of gravitas, and we must dress the part. That includes superlative luggage, and there’s nothing quite as showstopping as the Rear Window leather overnight case from Mark Cross. It takes its design directly from a piece Grace Kelly carries in the Hitchcock film. But cinematic immortality aside, its fame is derived from its second-to-none craftsmanship, including plenty of belts and an elasticized pouch to keep those chiffon evening gowns and martini shakers exactly where they belong.

Becoming an Olympic athlete is hard and all, but then again, so is finding a decent pair of shorts. Oh, we’ve spent much of the summer playing it safe in basic, tailored Bermudas, but there was little joy. Enter KasMaria, which has an entirely different approach. The brand’s patchwork floral shorts use a mix of Liberty prints to create an easy-to-wear, pull-on style that offers a bit of excitement without any unnecessary drama. They are perfect for meandering around town, paired with a basic tank or even a long-sleeved linen button-up. ($265, —Ashley Baker



Named after the prominent 19th-century American landscape painter George Inness, this new hotel and members’ club in Accord, New York, certainly lives up to that heritage. Inness, which was founded by a group of ardent Hudson Valley weekenders, has a team that includes restaurateur-architect Taavo Somer and design firm Post Company (formerly Studio Tack). With 40 guest rooms, 28 handsome cabins, and a 12-room farmhouse situated on 225 acres, the property—with lush grounds planned by landscape designer Miranda Brooks, no less—includes a nine-hole golf course, swimming pools, tennis courts, hiking trails, and a farm shop. Add to that a three-acre organic farm, which supplies the cozy restaurant and lounge that overlook it. Later this year will mark the opening of a fully outfitted wellness center, with a gym, spa, and yoga studio. Here, where minimalist buildings sit in a patchwork of untamed flora, the idyll calls to mind a cinematic backdrop from another era—or perhaps a painting by Inness himself. ( —David Foxley
