My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and that you have done all the preparations for the weekend! Today we will bust some myths and prejudices about the beige color and I will try to present you some basic characteristics of this wonderful color. Beige is one of the most appreciative colors that is easy to adapt, this color itself is very calm, neutral and easily fits with any color thanks to its “drowning neutrality”.
Beige is a natural color with a visible admixture of brown and white. Many people find this color boring, while some find it very relaxing to the eye due to its neutrality. This color goes perfectly with bright and dark colors because beige is a great “background” color that can combine colors and create true harmony.
People believe that beige is a symbol of conservatism, piety and simplicity. I love this color and for me it is the epitome of sophistication and elegance. Beige color is light and neutral and can simply soften any combination that contains pieces of bright colors, while on the other hand it can successfully extract the best from some dark shades that are not pleasing to the eye.
If you want to emphasize two or more darker shades, it is necessary to add clothing items or fashion accessories in beige color and achieve a relaxing effect. Beige color is easily combined with pink and yellow, and in that way you achieve a gentle, attractive and conservative look. If you decide to combine beige with brown, orange and black, then an ideal palette of earth colors is created and the combination gets a strong and sophisticated look. Combined with blue, beige gives warmth to shades of blue, but never manages to fully compensate for the intensity of cold blue shades.
Beige is a color that suits every person, it’s just a matter of some personal preferences and tastes because some people don’t feel comfortable wearing beige. Today I decided to show you what the harmony of earth colors looks like with beautiful pieces of cashmere made by my friends from the company GOBI Cashmere from Mongolia.
Founded and built by the Mongol community, the GOBI Cashmere brand combines tradition, modern innovation and technology to make pieces of the highest quality cashmere for almost 40 years. GOBI Cashmere offers the finest and most luxurious pieces made of cashmere. This brand is known around the world for special cashmere coats and is the only company in the world that exclusively produces cashmere clothes with many years of experience and great love.
GOBI Cashmere is one of the few brands in the world that has integrated the sustainability program with respect for its tradition and the roots of the nomadic lifestyle. Nature conservation and harmony are the only life values nurtured by nomadic shepherds in Mongolia. Generations of shepherds who lived in the steppes for thousands of years, creating a unique tradition of Mongolian nomads. Gobi Kashmir is a brand that has combined its traditional heritage with modern sustainability initiatives.
A non-profit organization that deals with the protection of the value of cashmere, the “chain of life” from shepherds to retailers. Founded in 2015, the SFA (Sustainability Fiber Association) organization provides an independent, non-competitive platform that allows to protect the rights and values of all participants in the cashmere value chain, as well as non-governmental and governmental organizations, to unite a common interest in ensuring sustainability in industry cashmere.
The main goal of the SFA organization is the safe production, processing and launch of internationally traded cashmere fibers, while respecting the law of sustainability, which results in better environmental protection and economic development for participants in the value chain.
All members of this organization are committed exclusively to three clear goals:
- Environmental protection – Ecological sustainability in the Mongolian regions where cashmere is produced.
- Community protection – Improving economic conditions in the long- term for all pastoral communities whose livelihood depends solely on the cashmere market.
- Animal protection – ensuring the right to life of animals in cashmere production.
GOBI Cashmere, in cooperation with the non-profit organization SFA, supports a special project that covers the topics of cashmere sustainability. This project aims to support the sustainability of cashmere in order to reduce and prevent the deterioration of grazing and wildlife protection conditions in rural parts of Mongolia. Through this comprehensive program that brings together all actors in the cashmere value chain, the project improves the lives of shepherds and the development of a sustainable cashmere industry in the provinces of Dornogobi and Bayankhongor.

You can also find all the information on their official social media channels on the Facebook page and their official Instagram profile.
This spring, new items also arrived from my friends Picard Lederwaren, who supported my adventures around the world for years, and Picard’s leather friends never let me down. The quality and design of Picard leather goods and accessories is amazing and after so many years and carrying pounds of luggage I carry my Picard backpacks in blog posts as well.
The model you have the opportunity to see in today’s blog post is one of the models from the new collection for Spring – Summer 2021 and also it is iconic model Buddy. I must admit that this shape won my heart over at a very first sight. The Buddy backpack in black leather is very elegant and urban so you can wear it on absolutely any occasion.
Picard backpack model Buddy, my new friend from Picard who is keeping me company in Berlin this spring, while we are ready for some new adventures that await us soon.
The case is made of 100% titanium in the color of rose gold, while the dial is made of aventurine, a type of quartz that is characterized by its transparency and the presence of mineral impurities in the form of platinum that give it a shimmering or shining effect called aventurescence.
My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze brown-gold color. The bracelet is made of Elaphe water snake skin, which does not belong to the protected species. For all additional information and news about MUSE watches, you can follow them on their official Facebook page and Instagram profile.
MUSE watches are for all art lovers with refined taste and a sense of aesthetics. The basic idea of the founders of the MUSE brand was to re-examine and present the representation of time through an artistic prism. Mr. Robert and Mr. Leuba replaced the traditional hands, so the hours, minutes and seconds are shown in special art forms inspired by elements of nature and architecture.
MUSE dials are a moving art, time passes and different formations and shapes are made. Watches have become real small pieces of art today, only technology and inspiration have made it possible to enjoy the beauty of shapes that change on the MUSE dial every minute.

Sneakers: Dolce & Gabbana
Since the entire outfit was in a certain classic tone, I decided to take my favorite Dolce & Gabbana crocodile sneakers I bought last year for a walk. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way.
They may have spent some time in the closet, but in the end they waited for their five minutes of fame! Of course, this shade of drape color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe.
My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this third special post where we discovered one incredible knitwear cashmere brand from Mongolia! How did you like my outfit today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great spring outfit in beige color?
I really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!
I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.
The process of vaccinating the population in Germany has begun and I believe that the situation will soon improve and that our lives will return to normal soon!
I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and please wear a mask.
If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!
With love from Berlin,
