My dear fashionistas and travelers, welcome to another fashion story on the Mr.M blog in 2024! Winter is my favorite time of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers”, but if you travel in winter it can cause “bittersweet” when packing the things you need to take on the trip. As a person who travels often, it is very important for me to have quality and durable luggage, which will also be elegant and stylish. To many of you, I have become recognizable for my Burberry coats and quality suitcases, as you have noticed that I always try to have interesting suitcases and other travel accessories.

Today we are hanging out again with an interesting Italian brand Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano – FPM. This exclusive Italian brand of leather goods and luggage was founded in 1946. FPM represents the artistic expression of the best Italian talent and aesthetics, as well as excellent expertise. Traditional hand-crafting with the use of top-quality materials is today combined with the innovations of avant-garde metals and modern design.

FPM Milano luggage offers travelers practicality and style, all in one suitcase and backpack. Designed by Marc Sadler, these lightweight aluminum-clad and reinforced suitcases are inspired by vintage trunks, purpose-built to give you the durability you need on your travels. The combination of Avante-Garde materials and Italian design motifs give these FPM suitcases a robust and secure look.

In today’s post I present to you a backpack and duffle bag from the Bank on the Road Econyl® collection, which is entirely made in Italy, ideal for business people and leisure, able to satisfy any practical functional or aesthetic need. The practical inner pocket of the backpack allows you to charge your tablet and smartphone anytime, anywhere. A modern, elegant line of backpacks, made of high-quality and waterproof nylon with special attention to leather and metal details. Aluminum personalization recalls the innovative creativity of the FPM Bank collection.

An extremely light duffle travel bag and with a practical detachable shoulder strap, this travel bag is also decorated with the iconic butterfly lock.

Many people feel that it is important to have a quality suitcase that can accompany all adventures, so I decided to take my FPM Milano BANK ZIP DLX SPINNER 55 navy blue cabin trolley with black leather details on my new trip that brought me luck this year. Not only is it practical, lightweight, but it’s also a photogenic suitcase that many people asked me about at the airport where I bought it. FPM Milano luggage offers travelers practicality and style, all in one. Designed by Marc Sadler, these lightweight aluminum clad and reinforced suitcases are inspired by vintage trunks, purpose-built to give you the durability you need on your travels. The combination of Avante-Garde materials and Italian design motifs give these FPM suitcases a robust and secure look.

This incredible FPM Milano BANK ZIP DLX SPINNER 55 is made of 100% Makrolon© polycarbonate. 4 wheels guarantee excellent stability and smoothness during travel. The suitcase has a built-in TSA lock (ideal for travelers to the US) combined with a zipper closure with a water-resistant treatment. The elastic strap comes with the case and closes with the iconic butterfly clasp. The two handles are made of fine Italian leather and are decorated with the FPM logo. Internal organization comes with a soft elastic buckle strap with an engraved FPM logo on one side and a zippered pocket on the other side.ideal for 1-2 days of travel.

I’m sure you remember the brand Aida Barni, which is synonymous with the perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Last season we enjoyed the beauty of pastel colors, while this year I decided to paint cold winter days with some 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 red cashmere sweater V Neck you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni FW23 collection, a wonderful refreshing red color 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.

For all Aida Barni fans in Germany, I have discovered two men’s spots where you can find and enjoy in the beauty of Aida Barni incredible knitwear: Braun Hamburg and Mientus retail stores.

Today I will continue story about new friends of the Mr.M blog who have managed to bring together exquisite luxury artisan crafts, Italian passion and exquisite Neapolitan craftsmanship. Artigiano del Guanto (ADG) is an artisan glove workshop active in the northern part of Naples, founded by Giovanni Ricciardiello, an experienced glove maker for 10 decades, a historical exponent of the tradition of the ancient Neapolitan glove makers. A few years ago, in 2016 to be precise, the laboratory was renovated and with it the brand was born: Artigiano Del Guanto.

Today, Artigiano Del Guanto is no longer a “simple” workshop of artisan gloves, but a family company in which the new generation of heirs Francesco, Mimmo and Flora, Giovanni’s children stand out, who, with the indispensable presence of their father, in addition to the brand, renewed the production chain with a completely new styles and models, connected with new modern communication channels, in order to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding customer. Over the years, the Artigiano Del Guanto collections have attracted the attention of very prestigious international high fashion brands such as Giorgio Armani, MaxMara, Coccinelle and Pinko, with whom today the Ricciardiello family’s ADG artisan glove laboratory proudly collaborates as an official manufacturer.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you unusual gloves made of special microperforated leather, ZGK-8132 “Black Eagle”. Microperforated leather in red color, the model is characterized by the presence of flaps and covered buckles. The lining is made of 100% cashmere. I want to mention that color combinations are possible and you can create your own gloves, just like I did. When ordering, it is necessary to specify the main shade of the glove when choosing a color, and in the notes to add information about another shade to make a two-color version, if it is a two-color product, as I did.

Otherwise, simply specify your preferred one favorite color when ordering monocolor pair of gloves. As this is a purely artisan glove, made by hand, it is available in every size or color shown in the product listing. Sometimes the possibility of “Express delivery” is guaranteed for the color visible in the product photo. In order to receive a glove in one of the colors available on the company’s color card, the artisan production time with shipping included can take up to 15 days.

If you want to stay up to date and find out what new things Artigiano Del Guanto has in store for us this winter fashion season, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Hi Marko, I love your blog because of the unusual travelogues and the amazing hotels you visit, regardless of the fact that all your trips are luxurious and sponsored, I made an effort to visit some of the countries you visited because you inspired me with your travelogues dedicated to those countries and I just had to to feel it live and check it out. I bought FPM and Bric’s suitcases because of your recommendations and I must say that FPM suitcases are really special. I really like their latest collaboration with Gucci, I just love that print! It’s absolutely… Read more »

I just thought that this is a good introduction to the series of travelogues! When I see an email that your new post is online and I can guess from the title that it’s a travelogue, I always prepare some unusual homemade cocktail and some small fruit table, because your travelogues are so unusual and exotic and I just enjoy myself. My colleagues are used to me wandering off at work while reading your travelogues on the computer, I even managed to get my colleagues to read your travelogues from China, it’s an understatement to say that they are delighted… Read more »

Dear Marko, I am your long-time fan and you may remember me, we met in Berlin in 2018 when you came back from India, I will never forget our meeting!

Years passed, you really achieved great success, but you remained down-to-earth and connected to reality and continued to write your travelogues and keep your online diary.

Trust me you are still my inspiration and I would like to be successful one day just like you and visit all those interesting destinations in the best possible way, with style!

With best regards,

Ich bin ein bisschen neidisch auf dich, weil du ein Leben in Luxuskoffern führen kannst. Natürlich mache ich Witze! Sie sind ein Phänomen und ich bewundere junge Menschen wie Sie wirklich dafür, dass sie versuchen, Menschen zum Reisen und zum Entdecken von Neuem zu inspirieren. Sie heben sich von anderen Influencern durch Ihre direkte und ehrliche Ansprache an Ihr Publikum ab. Ändere dich niemals!

Die Koffer von FPM Milano sind großartig, schade, dass es in Deutschland nicht viele Geschäfte gibt, die sie verkaufen. Ich habe versucht, FPM X Gucci-Koffer in München zu kaufen, es gab keine, sie sagen immer, sie erwarten eine neue Lieferung und wiederholen wochenlang die gleichen Informationen. Sie sind eine wahre Modeikone und Sie können sehen, dass Sie auch im Winter stilvoll reisen! Ich wünsche Dir ein frohes neues Jahr, von Herzen alles Gute! Viel Glück, Gesundheit, Liebe und Erfolg für dich und deine liebe Mutter Rose! Ich hoffe, dass sie sich bald erholt und der Gerechtigkeit Genüge getan wird, denn… Read more »
