My dear fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion story on the Mr.M blog! Autumn is my favorite period of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers” and when we can take out our favorite knitted pieces from our wardrobes that keep us warm during the lower autumn temperatures.
I started today’s adventure with old friends, I’m sure you remember the Aida Barni brand, synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian cashmere. Last Fall – Winter season, we enjoyed the beauties of pastel colors, while this year I decided to paint the cold autumn days with bright colors.
Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the fall-winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater, it is a gift from the heart, because a cashmere sweater carries a certain symbolism with it.
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 uses all the latest production techniques available on the market, from cotton looms to the latest and most advanced knitwear machines of all sizes. The current production capacity is about 120,000 pieces per year. It is important to note that the entire production cycle is performed in Italy, more precisely in the factory of the company located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the province of the same name located in the heart of Italy – Tuscany.
“Made in Italy” is more than a production concept, but this brand has proven to be much more than the perfect cashmere sweater on a store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression to remember.
Annapurna is a name that evokes 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.
Aida Barni is an iconic and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a 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 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. Customers of the Aida Barni brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.
Aida Barni concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.
The sweater you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni collection, a combination of white and green and is made of pure cashmere. Refreshing color for the new season!
You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in multi-brand stores 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 love because you are giving a piece in which love and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day is woven.
All the people who have been following my blog for years know that I have a great love for Burberry trench-coats and coats, I honestly don’t even know how many of their pieces I own anymore, but I know that this is the first time in several years that I have encountered a suede coat again. This leather coat is an interesting piece, easy to fit, but also very sensitive and may be “difficult” to maintain. Suede leather is a delicate material, aesthetically very pleasant eye catching and fashionable, but sometimes not practical. The only mitigating circumstance with this suede leather coat is the dark color, so the stains are not as visible as on light colors and this leather is exceptional and one of the softest.
Burberry trenchcoats and coats represent the pinnacle of world fashion and have become indispensable fashion classics today. These coats were created by the founder of the Burberry company, Thomas Burberry, more than 100 years ago, inspired by the British heritage, and at the same time introduced elements of urban fashion.
You can find all classic Burberry coats in 5 basic models: Legendary Kensington, Westminster, Chelsea, Waterloo and Pimlico. All models are named after London districts. What is the difference between these models?
The Kensington – a classic model with a modern cut that easily adapts to any silhouette. The most popular model, which is available in four basic colors: gray, navy, honey color (camel) and black. Also, this model is made in two lengths. The coat you see on me today is this model.
The Westminster – a model that is extended (oversized) and lightly cut for a draped silhouette. Basic colors: honey color (camel) and dark green (khaki). Also, this model is made in two lengths.
The Chelsea – a model characterized by a slim fit (narrow form close to the body) with narrow shoulders and a cut waist. The basic colors are honey and taupe and it is also available in two lengths.
The Waterloo – A more comfortable fit, a longer model than the classic with a subtle and relaxed fit that is ideal for layering. This model is usually made in three basic colors: maroon, black and honey-camel and is available in only one length.
The Pimlico, a simple flat cut decorated with a single-row fastening of a minimalistic character and a modern cut. This model is usually made in navy, biscuit (biscuit color) and honey color – camel. This model is also only available in one classic length.
I would like to note that all the listed colors are only classics that are always produced, but the Burberry company introduces seasonal colors to enrich its offer.
Most Burberry coats have been hand-crafted in Castleford, Yorkshire for over 50 years from gabardine – a revolutionary fabric that Thomas Burberry proudly introduced in 1879. Polished, light and practical, beautiful cotton resistant to all kinds of weather conditions that remains at the heart of the Burberry brand to this day.
The classic coat model originated and developed from the basic form of the Tielocken coat, which was patented in 1912 by Thomas Burberry. A simple but refined unique shape that has been adapted over the years and has become a recognizable Burberry coat.
Each Burberry coat is special and has its own story – one that is made to last and write new pages of life’s chapters together with you. Trench-coats and coats are an investment that pays off, it is a gift for generations to come. Believe me, I know this from my own experience, because before my blogging career, I inherited my first Burberry coat from my grandfather’s wardrobe, and to this day I happily keep it and wear it on special occasions.
The leather coat that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is special because it is made of the highest quality and finest suede leather, which is specially thinned for this model. This Kensington model in a gentle dark color is specific because it is made as a fall-winter version and the lining is made of calfskin to prevent sweating and you will have a cooling sensation during the summer, and on the other hand during the winter the calfskin keeps the heat, but it is important to be dressed in layers. Because of all this, the leather treatment had to be different and the skin of the coat’s face is significantly thinner than that of classic leather Burberry coats.
I am honored that I got this exceptional opportunity to walk through Istanbul, this priceless fashion piece from the new collection for which I tried my best to convey the beauty of this gentle dark blue – navy color to you with these pictures.
