My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure. Today we will continue our story about one unusual Swedish fashion brand that managed to connect the beauty of fine art and fashion in a special and specific way, resulting in unusual collections of wearable fine art, meet Limitato.
Limitato was founded in Sweden by two business management students, Emrik Olausson and Gustav Peterson, with the ambition to introduce a refined rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic and give Scandinavia its first stylish menswear brand within the advanced contemporary segment. Gustav and Emrik inherited a passion for art from their families. They need art to make their surroundings energetic, eclectic and to inspire creativity. Through partnerships with emerging artists, the brand intends to communicate and enhance its community seasonally. The language used by this brand to communicate with customers is mature, elegant, sophisticated, creative and lively.
Limitato is a brand that operates at the crossroads of culture, art and fashion, connecting creative freedom and expression through numerous collaborations with artists. The brand is closely specialized in creating wearable works of art, but not the ones you imagine in a museum but works that contain ubiquitous cultural phenomena that are actual at this moment. The Limitato brand nurtures a vision of unique visual art to iconic moments in music history, some of the prints come from famous artists, photographers or historical archives.
The brand name Limitato is inspired by the concept of “limited edition” and aptly sums up the brand’s unique concept, which is that a garment can become a kind of wearable fine art. By creating garments with high-quality prints of graphic and photographic art, the Limitato team aims to make art more accessible while also creating some seriously urban and quirky clothing with a unique and distinct aesthetic.
The great success of the Pitti Uomo platform helped launch the Limitato brand onto the international fashion scene. Over the course of one season, Limitato brand products went from being stocked in five stores to 150, and by the time the Spring/Summer 2018 collection was released, Limitato had become a true fashion icon. The brand works exclusively with a range of artists and photographers, whose work ranges from iconic portraits to abstract graphic art. Artists do not need to be well-known, the most important thing they must possess is authenticity.

BOMBERG is an independent Swiss watch brand that has become very popular in a short time due to its unusual watches that have a special design and character that is not for everyone. The BOMBERG brand name itself came naturally, and the “Berg” element is a sign for the famous mountain. If you identify as a rebellious soul and want to escape from the ordinary by living according to your own desires, then these watches are the ideal choice for you!
BOMBERG embraces the free and rebellious spirit of millions of people around the world who dare to be different and create their own unusual rules of life and are brave enough to freely manage their lives and follow their dreams. With a maverick and emancipated spirit, BOMBERG moves away from the roots of traditional industry and creates superior products. The BOMBERG community is represented by people who resolutely reject the status quo and like to show it with their lifestyle. The creations you will discover in the BOMBERG world embody all these values and more, so let yourself be carried away by the extraordinary concepts and designs of this unusual Swiss watch brand. BOMBERG watches are here to take you on a new enchanting journey of life.
BOMBERG watches nurture three core values on which this exceptional watch brand rests: Bold, Innovation and Disruptive. Bold and different watches, making a powerful statement that sets them apart from the crowd. On the other hand, innovation and a patented creation designed “in-house” to transform a wristwatch into an amazing pocket watch. BOMBERG watches are the ones that disrupt and change the world for the better because by canceling the classic rules of watchmaking, it is the courage that gives you strength and energy to create unusual timepieces with innovative and unique designs and details like BOMBERG watches.

A Swiss brand, independent, nimble, fast based in Neuchâtel, BOMBERG follows its path with strong references to the world of tattoos, symbols and icons – The Tattoo. Yes, you read that right, the brand has been close to him since 2012. The bold and fearless team that makes up the BOMBERG brand stronger. Today, claiming its new positioning and advertising campaigns: #TattooYourDesire. Different trends around the world, different communities, BOMBERG tells their stories, highlights their creativity, affirms their personality.
As I mentioned a little while ago, the brand name BOMBERG arose naturally, the element “Berg” is a sign for this famous mountain. Going off the beaten path, Rick De La Croix wanted to cross the boundaries set by tradition and all that convention dictates. For him, one must dare to show one’s true face, to affirm one’s style with conviction, even if one crosses the sacred boundaries of “restraint”.
Proud to be Swiss, proud of the innovation and expertise his country brings to the world, his fondest desire is to discover and promote an aspect of the Swiss character that is too often hidden: bold, independent, sexy, seductive, avant-garde, voluntary, but always respecting tradition. Therefore, the development of his brand went in two directions: towards technical innovations and towards topics that are close to his heart. This is how Rick De La Croix managed to create watches with the “Swiss Made” philosophy in their DNA, adding accessories to transform them into pendants or table clocks, using a patented system of his own design.
In today’s fashion story, I will present you the “Automatic Mariachi Skull” model from the “BB-01 AUTOMATIC” collection. This unique watch from the limited collection is dedicated to the spirit of the mariachi, the famous Mexican musical style and group performance with horns, stringed instruments, high vocals, sombreros and elegant uniforms. The BOMBERG Mariachi wristwatch, themed in brown, features a stylized skull, flower eyes and a cross on the forehead. The sides of the watch case are decorated with lovely mariachi decorations, a detailed “touch of class” that will impress the people around you. The crown, placed at 2 o’clock, has a hint of brown, and the bracelet is made of calf leather with mariachi motifs embossed on it.

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.

Everyone who follows the Mr.M blog knows that I am a big fan of quality and interesting shoes, regardless of whether they are sneakers or elegant shoes, I always try to pay maximum attention to fashion details such as footwear. Today I want to introduce you to the famous French fashion brand Lanvin, which you haven’t had the chance to see on the Mr.M blog so far.
Lanvin is a French luxury fashion house based in Paris. Founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, it is the oldest French fashion house still operating. Since 2018, it has been a subsidiary of the Lanvin Group based in Shanghai. The House of Lanvin was named after its founder Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. Lanvin was founded in 1867 and opened its first store in rue du Marche Saint Honore in 1885.
Lanvin made clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac, which began to attract the attention of many wealthy people, who were looking for creations for their children. Soon Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, who were included in the clientele of her new boutique on rue Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris. In 1909, Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture, marking her formal status as a couturier. The Lanvin logo was inspired by a photograph taken of Jeanne Lanvin while attending a ball with her daughter in 1907. As Albert Elbaz said, “It is not a lion and it is not a horse. It’s mother and daughter, I find the logo very emotional.” Since 1923, the Lanvin empire has included a paint factory in Nanterre.
In today’s post you have the opportunity to see their new model of Bumper sneakers that are completely made in white leather. This model exists in various variations and combinations of materials and each sneaker is unique and unusual, so I’m sure that you will find your favorite pair!
