If you're familiar with Net-a-Porter's Friends and Family Sale, you know that two of its defining qualities are that it's chock-full of good stuff and that it's very rare. But with temperatures finally dropping and fall shopping in full swing (since we actually have places to go this year), Net-a-Porter timed things perfectly with its just-launched Friends and Family Sale.
The sale runs until October 22, and using the code 25OFF, you can get 25% off of over 10k items from some of fashion's top brands. For this edit, I chose a selection of basics, accessories, shoes, special-occasion pieces, and more. But they're going to sell out quickly, so I won't waste any more of your time. Scroll on to shop the goods that I highly recommend adding to your cart. You'll thank yourself later when picking out fall outfits is easier than ever.

Before Hero Fiennes Tiffin burst onto the scene as the brooding Hardin Scott in the film After—a role that skyrocketed him to heartthrob status—and walked the runways of Salvatore Ferragamo and Dolce & Gabbana, the London native played a young Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It’s one of his earliest acting credits and an origin story I can’t help but discuss with him during our Zoom call. For the record, he was a Harry Potter stan in his younger days but “switched sides” in an effort to play it cool when he became involved.
I could spend my entire allotted 25 minutes talking to Fiennes Tiffin about all things Potter, like the time he met Daniel Radcliffe before being cast in the franchise and whether or not his Tom Riddle will make an appearance in a future Fantastic Beasts movie (one can only hope!), but we’re actually here to discuss his current project, After We Fell, the third installment of the wildly popular After franchise. In preparation for this interview, I spent the weekend catching up on all three films, and I have a bone to pick with Fiennes Tiffin. How can, after all this time, Hardin still be making the same infuriating relationship mistakes?!
I should provide some context. The After franchise, which is based on the YA literary phenomenon of the same name by Anna Todd, is your classic good-girl-falls-for-the-bad-boy romance story, though much, much steamier. It centers on college students Hardin Scott and Tessa Young, two impossibly beautiful humans who, despite the odds stacked against them, keep finding their way back to each other. The constant push and pull of their relationship is enough to make you want to pull your hair out, but you still keep rooting for them in the end. The storyline is simple but effective. And audiences can’t get enough.
For Fiennes Tiffin, getting to the bottom of Hardin’s flaws and why he is the way he is has always been the main draw. “The fact that he’s been through so much but, as the audience, we only get to understand and know about it gradually as the story unfolds was one of the most interesting things to me when I first got the script,” he shares. That and getting into the headspace of such a complex person. While Fiennes Tiffin admits he too gets frustrated with Hardin’s actions, he had to find ways to sympathize with him. “What’s nice is that part of telling his story is trying to work out how we can justify it all. You can’t judge a character. Part of the fun is creating a mindset where you do genuinely believe them.”
Four films in (After Ever Happy has already been shot and is due out next year), it’s safe to say Fiennes Tiffin is fully tuned in to Hardin. He counts himself lucky to be able to bring the character back to life again and again with a cast and crew he fully trusts. The films not only have been a launchpad for his career but are now opening new doors too. He has a producer credit on After We Fell, which he says he took on to simply “learn and grow” for future opportunities.
Fiennes Tiffin may not be calling the shots or making creative decisions quite yet, but the topic of what’s next is a big one for the young actor, especially as his slate of upcoming projects continues to grow. It was announced earlier this spring that he would star opposite Diane Kruger and Sydney Park in the romantic drama First Love, which recently wrapped filming in Los Angeles. While he was hesitant to do yet another romance film, within three minutes on a Zoom call, Director A.J. Edwards sold him on the story of a young man’s difficult entry into adulthood. And then there’s the major news that he is joining Viola Davis and Lashana Lynch in the Gina Prince-Bythewood–directed historical African epic TheWoman King. Fiennes Tiffin is, as they say, booked and busy, but he’s still got his sights on one day doing a darker project based out of London. “I definitely want to do something grittier, kind of boyish, and a dramatic thriller with a lot of twists and turns,” he says.
As the clock ticks down on our interview, I pivot to the topic of fashion. Fiennes Tiffin may be an actor first, but he’s an on-the-rise style star second. In the midst of kicking off his on-screen career, Fiennes Tiffin signed with one of the UK’s biggest modeling agencies, Storm Models. What was originally meant to be a small side gig to keep himself busy and earn some extra money quickly exploded into a fast-paced world of nonstop travel, shoots, and runways. Standout moments include a Baz Luhrmann–directed film for the Erdem x H&M collection and a Salvatore Ferragamo campaign that turned into a long-lasting friendship between the actor and the brand. Fiennes Tiffin is a front-row regular at its shows and even accompanied designer Paul Andrew to the 2019 Met Ball. “I feel like my style has evolved with them,” he says of working with the storied fashion house. “Ferragamo does a great job of balancing the old and the new.”
Fiennes Tiffin admits he still has a lot to learn about the industry, but his interest in fashion and clothes only continues to grow with help from his stylist, Michael Miller. The two have collaborated on a series of notable looks throughout the years, including one of Fiennes Tiffin’s favorites, for the Spain After premiere. While most of the press for After We Fell is virtual, the two are making the most of it by way of red carpet–worthy ensembles, including a chic Dior number and a navy checkered matching set by Daniel W. Fletcher.
If one thing is for certain, Fiennes Tiffin’s sartorial choices are something we’ll never tire of. The same goes for his ability to sweep us off our feet.
After We Fell is now available everywhere in digital HD and on demand.
At the 2021 Cannes Yachting Festival, MBY editor Hugo Andreae took the chance to look inside the Ryck 280, which was making its global debut.There was a notable frostiness in the air at the 2021 Cannes Yachting Festival as a host of new sportsboat builders tried to muscle in on the market for outboard sportsboats so deftly exploited by Axopar. The Hanse’s group’s new Ryck brand pulled out all the stops, wrapping its first 280 in pearlescent green vinyl to catch the punters’ eyes. However, we were more excited by the impressively deep-vee deadrise angle at the stern and the purposeful-looking hull that promises a top speed of up to 45 knots from the most powerful 350hp engine option.

As businesses around the world reopen with trepidation, it is becoming evidently clear that a new normal has been taking shape – one that we now see will outlive the conditions of the pandemic. A post-Covid world looks dramatically different from life as we knew it a little under two years ago. We must all be willing to adapt to new processes and technologies as we move forward, particularly in the commercial sector. The extent of disruption caused by the pandemic has placed unprecedented demands on security teams and has also pressured the market for new technological innovations Concerns around temperature testing, mask mandates, crowd control, and adhering to social distancing measures are just some of the issues that have complicated the area of security....
In previous installments of this series, we have looked at how pregnancy changes the physiology of the respiratory system, the circulatory system, and the urinary system. Today, we’ll explore the digestive system and how it changes in pregnancy. The digestive system is basically a long tube, running from the mouth to the anus, getting narrower and wider at certain spots, with some additional organs —the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder— processing, storing, and/or delivering substances into the tube. From your mouth, food passes through the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (also called the colon), the end of which, the rectum, leads to the anus. During pregnancy, there are a few phenomena causing changes in the function of the digestive system. First,...

The average taxi time for narrowbodies at major European Airports has fallen. While the news is generally positive for airlines, it can have some negative impacts, given that flights are now no longer where they are expected to be at any given time. Narrowbodies have benefited from shorter taxi times in Europe over the summer. Photo: Getty ImagesYou would think that shorter taxi times are good for flights and passengers. After all, nobody celebrates when they land on the Polderbahn at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. Generally, shorter taxi times are good for aviation and passengers, though there can be some drawbacks...

Continuing a recent streak, Friday saw the fourth successful orbital launch from China in one week. This time, the Zhongxing-1D (ChinaSat-1D) satellite was inserted into orbit by a Chang Zheng 3B rocket launched from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. The ChinaSat (Zhongxing) series of satellites, built by the state-owned China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), fall under the communications category. The ChinaSat-1 series is specifically designed for military communications, with the first of this type launched in 2011. Two types of military communications satellites are used, with Friday’s launch exhibiting the Feng Huo-2, used for tactical communications providing Chinese forces with secure data and voice transmission via C-band...
Zhong Yi Optics has announced the Mitakon Speedmaster 90mm f/1.5 manual focus portrait lens for full-frame Leica M, Canon RF, Sony FE, and Nikon Z mounts. The company says its new portrait prime provides a medium telephoto angle of view, great control of depth of field, and the ability to render distortion-free portraits with well-controlled color artifacts. Zhong Yi Optics also says that the Leica M mount version can autofocus with third-party adapters such as the ones from Techart or Megadap. These adapters allow Nikon Z and Sony users to take advantage of the short flange distance of the Leica M mount and gain autofocus with the 90mm f/1.5 that supports face and eye detection as well as work in tandem with the camera’s in-body image stabilization.
Campaigning organisation Justice for Tenants has won £25,440 for four renters at an unlicensed HMO after a court ruled their landlord had not tried hard enough to secure a Temporary Exemption Notice (TEN). Thambithurai Uthayakanthan told a First Tier Property Tribunal that when he found out he needed a licence for the four-bed flat in a former council block opposite the British Library in central London (pictured), he applied for a TEN in December 2019 and again in March 2020. He believed a licence was not needed as he planned to sell it, while the tenants had also told him they intended to leave. Justice for Tenants reported that when the four moved in, the flat was dirty with problems including a broken fire detector in the kitchen, broken furniture and boiler....
