My dear fashionistas and travellers, welcome to a new fashion story from Cuba. August will be besides Tunisia dedicated to fashion stories from an unusual island country in the Caribbean, a country known for tobacco and rum – Cuba.

I am sure that there are no people reading the Mr.M blog now who are not familiar with the brand that we will be hanging out with again today in the heart of the Caribbean – Aida Barni, a timeless brand of exquisite knitwear that has become a favorite of Mr.M blog readers over the past few winter seasons. This is the first time I have come across Aida Barni summer pieces and I must say I am delighted.
Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Last winter we enjoyed the beauty of bright and unusual colors, while this spring I decided to continue in cheerful and unusual tones. Soft, light and warm items made of cashmere are a smart “fashion” investment and practical during the winter period. When you give someone a cashmere sweater as a gift, it is a gift from the heart because a cashmere sweater carries with it a certain symbolism. Also, sometimes you need to make yourself happy with something new, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, or maybe it’s a new unusual sweater that will put a smile on your face!
Aida Barni is a brand that belongs to the Annapurna group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and world manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines Annapurna and Aida Barni. Annapurna is a name that associates everyone with exceptional mountain landscapes, especially the mountain range in the Himalayas where goats live with their winter fleece, hiding the soft, warm “cloak” that made them so famous. “Made in Italy” is more than a production concept, but this brand has proven to be much more than the just perfect cashmere sweater on a store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression to remember.
Aida Barni is an imaginative and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a lifetime goal for a woman who decided to enter the world of business in the late seventies and reach the very top of this challenging and one of the most difficult sectors of the market. The Aida Barni brand was created as an artistic expression of the way of life and existence, the essence of unstressed chic, refined luxury. A collection for men and women dedicated to everyone who loves timeless and elegant knitwear that encompasses true elegance in the preciousness of materials, shapes and details.
The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts them to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Fans of the Aida Barney brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.
Aida Barni‘s concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with sophisticated style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.
The T-Shirt you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni Spring – Summer 2023 collection, in a iconic beige color and made of the highest quality cotton with a special treatment so that you have a cooling sensation on the skin while wearing it. A wonderful neutral must have color for the new spring season!
You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-known multibrand shops and department stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and pure love because you are giving a piece in which love for tradition and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day are woven.
Loro Piana is an Italian company specialised in clothing and textile products. This fashion house is considered the largest producer of cashmere and also the world’s largest artisanal company processing the luxury fiber.
The Loro Piana company has three divisions (textile divisions): a division that deals with the production of high-quality materials using precious fibers such as cashmere and baby cashmere, vicuna, linen and merino wool, a division that deals with the creation of luxury fashion items (production and distribution of men’s, women’s clothing, footwear and fashion accessories) and the interior design department – production and distribution of interior design products.
Originally from Trivero, the Loro Piana family started their family business in the wool trade at the beginning of the 19th century. In the second half of this century, the family moved its activities to Valsesia and founded the Fratelli Lora e Compagnia woolen mill, and then the Zignone & C. woolen mill in Quarona at the beginning of the 20th century. Engineer and founder of the Loro Piana brand, Mr. Pietro Loro Piana founded the company Loro Piana & C. in Quarona in 1924. Soon this company will celebrate its jubilee 100th anniversary of its existence and it will be an extraordinary celebration of the “first fashion century” of this extraordinary fashion house, which I am immensely looking forward to!
Mr. Franco Loro Piana (grandson of Mr. Pietro Loro Piana), after taking over the leadership of the company in the 1960s, started exporting high quality fabrics to Europe, America and Japan. He significantly expanded the markets in which Loro Piana began its new business ventures.
In today’s post you have the opportunity to see the beige linen summer trousers from the latest men’s Loro Piana Spring-Summer 2023 collection, which is just a small part of my favorites this season because of its distinctive elegance and my love for neutral colors. Crafted from the finest linen, these beige trousers are perfect for the man who pays attention to detail and leaves nothing to chance. These beige trousers are perfect for all occasions and can be easily combined with other colors.
The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary company story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives. The Fratelli Rossetti company is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.
Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: as early as the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic lines that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht and La Giusta.
In today’s post I will present you one of the Hobo Sport models. This model of Fratelli Rossetti shoes represents a unique development in line with the success of the Hobo spirit, so classic and elegant, while also possessing a certain amount of relaxed everyday sports spirit. The Hobo Sport has a fresh and unobtrusive look that makes it one of the most loved models of the Fratelli Rossetti brand.
This model of Hobo Sport moccasins that you can see on me in today’s post is made of soft, finely finished suede leather. This fashion shoe can also be worn without laces thanks to the practical internal elastic band. Rubber sole with custom tread and removable insole. When you buy this model, you also get laces in case you want to give this model a more classic look.
