An Edinburgh Shop That Celebrates Scottish Design

An Edinburgh Shop That Celebrates Scottish Design

The latest collection from the New York-based clothing line Another Tomorrow is the first from creative director Elizabeth Giardina, who joined the brand this past spring from Proenza Schouler White Label. For her debut, she looked to an old favorite for inspiration: Eero Saarinen’s Miller House and Garden, which “represents the modernity, simplicity and openness that I value in my clothing design,” she says. Located in Columbus, Ind., the midcentury modern home features a single-story open layout ideal for communal gatherings, as well as details meant to enhance the individual dwellers’ day-to-day lives. “I love the idea of this house being a space that is intensely personal, but is also a really beautiful home for entertaining,” says Giardina. Similarly, the wardrobe she created is for “both private and public moments.” (An organic Supima cotton track pant and matching tunic work just as well for lounging at home as they do under the brand’s blazers for the office.) The cushions that adorn the house’s famous conversation pit provided a palette of saturated reds, creams and pinks, while the garden, designed by Dan Kiley, offered a range of fern, olive and sage greens and lilac-tinted blues for Giardina to draw from. (Saarinen and Kiley also collaborated on the St. Louis Arch, in Giardina’s hometown.) Another aim of the spring collection was to expand Another Tomorrow’s range of textures — Giardina added new materials like hemp linen and even cruelty-free silk.

But after some pandemic stock-taking, they quickly made the shop a reality. Macdonald, a writer who was raised on the Isle of Skye, and Stevens, an architect by training, packed up their home in Hastings, England, and moved to Edinburgh. Bard opened in November 2022 in a former customs house in Leith, a neighborhood with an active arts scene and a busy port — a fitting base for a purveyor of stylish yet functional home goods. To select the inventory, the couple took a 10-week-long journey around the country to handpick objects and makers. Among their finds were brightly hued flowerpots made from reconstituted ocean plastic by commercial diver Ally Mitchell….
