My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today we will introduce you to a new Italian brand that makes amazing cashmere products for all seasons. This story will give the insight how you can look fashionable and stylish for all seasons and be prepare for hot and warm spring-summer or cold and rainy autumn-winter season.

You all know that I am a big fan of well designed and extraordinary quality knitwear and I always try to show you some of the best brands that I am sure you will always find for yourself and your beloved ones the most beautiful great knitwear, clothing and accessories to complete any outfit.

Today’s story will be dedicated to a brand that has changed many things in the fashion industry, especially in the world of knitwear – Malo.

Malo (derived from the Latin ego mālō, meaning “I prefer”) is a famous Italian luxury brand of cashmere, which was launched exactly 50 years ago by the brothers Alfredo and Giacomo Canessa in 1972 in Florence. All Malo products are exclusively made in Italy. Their collections are seasonal and distributed through a direct sales network that includes Malo stores, multi-brand stores and specially selected luxury department stores in different parts of the world.

Choosing Malo products means prioritising the quality of the most noble materials, high craftsmanship and artistic forms, absolute standards of excellence linked to a long artisanal tradition in creating unique garments, made to last over time.

The Malo brand has been developing since its inception and has perfected its products while improving its image policy to conquer the American market. The creative direction of the brand is followed by important fashion names such as Gianni Bugli, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Saverio Palatella, Fabio Piras. The first appearance was in New York in 2006, which was a great success with the press and international buyers. Anna Piaggi defined the Malo brand during an interview with the British newspaper The Telegraph as “the best producer of cashmere in the world.”

Malo sweater is an exclusive piece that should be used and left for generations to come, that way you will understand that it is the product you are looking for. Materials and form are always connected, from the choice of raw material to spinning, from dyeing to turning the yarn into a product, each Malo cashmere sweater has almost fifty years of history and will continue to evolve while respecting tradition.

Every step is subjected to constant checks carried out by Malo company’s expert teams, because this is the key to success and excellent results are achieved. So true that Malo bases its production on artisan processing techniques handed down over the centuries. There is no stage of production that can be fully entrusted to a machine or a computer, certain stitches, a certain loop or complex processing can only be done by the hands, experience and skills of highly specialized craftsmen.

The turning point in the modern history of the brand is the year 2019, which marks a new course for the historic Florentine brand, because in life our roots are the past, and the future is made for dreams. Today, the company is returning to its first love, the premium cashmere knitwear that made it famous worldwide, and aims to take the brand beyond knitwear into a pret-a-porter line where the same effects can be created in different fabrics.

Handmade knitwear is the pride of the Malo brand, it takes eight to sixteen hours to make one garment, an alchemy that transforms precious fibers into very soft fabrics and then into sweaters by the skilled hands of specialized artisans. Superior materials in combination with rigorous craft techniques guarantee exceptional aesthetic results and absolute comfort, the Malo sweater was created to be worn and passed on to new generations. Cashmere in its purest form is actually one of the most resistant yarns in nature, how soft it is, how durable it is, how strong it is, it must be respected, taken care of, appreciated for its unique qualities, for the sensations it gives to the skin that go straight to the heart.

The Malo brand has been dedicated to developing the art of fine knitwear for generations, each garment is entirely produced in Italy in Campi Bisenzio in Tuscany and in Borgonovo Val Tidone in Emilia Romagna, regions that are the repository of a long artisanal tradition at the heart of Made in Italy. The finest yarns arrive clean in the company’s laboratories through a completely transparent supply chain, from green Mongolia to the icy steppes of the Andes mountains to Italian factories, every step is subject to constant checks. Absolute quality is the first selection criterion for Malo, then it will be the experience, skill and careful eye of craftsmen dedicated to turning precious yarns into exceptional garments.

Why is the Malo brand so special? When buying any luxury product, the after-sales support and services provided by the brand are very important and that is why the Malo brand has developed a special service for its customers called “Malo Forever“.

Every item that comes out of the Malo Workshop is made to last. The art of the Florentine laboratory perfectly made in every single detail, after which the story of the new owner will make it unique. Whether you opt for a cozy sweater, a warm wrap scarf, a gift, a gift, worn over and over again, everyone has that special item of clothing that can bring back memories or stir up forgotten emotions.

Malo offers its customers several services of manual repair of branded items of all materials, whether they are made of wool, cashmere or any other natural fiber. If well maintained, high-quality knitwear can last for decades, and Malo’s professional regeneration service is part of the Malo product care process.

The most precious objects are made to last, they are a part of one’s life, like any other element of memory. In the Malo laboratories, every detail is taken care of: each garment will be carefully inspected, mended, washed only with very mild soaps that will make the fibers even more sensitive to the touch. After washing, the garment will be “shaved” to remove the “bunch” that has built up over years of use. At this stage, the entire garment will be carefully combed by hand. Each item of clothing is renovated by Malo expert craftsmen and your product is ready for a new life.

How can you take advantage of this “Malo Forever” service? This service can be used by bringing the item of clothing you want to regenerate to one of the Malo boutiques. Malo staff will be happy to take it over, from in-store delivery all the way to the hands of a Malo Craftsman to work their magic.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see two special pieces from the latest men’s Malo Spring – Summer 2022 collection that are my favorites this season. The sweater is perfect for the man who pays attention to details and leaves nothing to chance. This unusual Malo kiwi green sweater is a perfect example of the care and dedication of Malo artisans. This sweater is made of 50% cashmere and 50% cotton.

The second piece from today’s post is the Malo navy joggers pants in 100% soft cashmere. It can be worn as a sporty piece, but for moments of relaxation, when we want to achieve a look of relaxed and casual sporty elegance. The quality is felt at the first touch, but not only that, but also the craftsmanship of the workers is hidden in every detail.

Everyone who follows the Mr.M blog knows that I am a big fan of beautiful shoes, regardless of whether they are sports sneakers or elegant shoes, I always try to pay maximum attention to fashion details such as shoes. Today we are meeting again with a famous Swiss fashion brand whose creations I adore and I was very excited to see how Rhuigi Villaseñor will revolutionize the history of this brand as the new creative director. For all the people who are not familiar with the work of this fashion genius, Rhuigi is the founder of the famous luxury street fashion brand called Rhude.

Bally will always be true to its Swiss heritage and tradition, but as you can see modernization is the key to the success of global brands and that is why the Bally brand is at the very top of the fashion industry.

The sneakers that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are from the latest Bally collection, the Demmy model that has won the hearts of fashion lovers for its unusual sporty elegance that it radiates. The Demmy sneaker offers a mixed media variation on the design of the same name. They are made of tan leather and white mesh, with contrast details in orange. The rubber sole and technical outsole speak of Bally’s inspiration for “fashionable” running.

You look amazing dear Marko! This shade of green suits you really well and you should wear some clothes in this color more often, since I haven’t seen on you often. I have not heard of the Malo brand until now, but I noticed on their website that they have great pieces. Also in addition to sweater and pants, the watch is of course beautiful! It’s obvious that you love that watch because you can’t take it off! 🙂

I love the Bally brand, especially their leather clothing. I have 3 of their leather jackets and I adore them! You look great, I would never say this is a summer sweater, but looks great on you.

Das richtige Outfit für lässige Spaziergänge durch die Stadt oder auch für die Arbeit, wenn kein streng formeller Dresscode verlangt wird. Der Pullover ist fantastisch, besonders die Farbe!
