Aida Barni: Timeless Elegance never goes out of fashion…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog. I sincerely hope that you started this new year with more enthusiasm and some better mood. In the coming months, the vaccine will be available in all countries, so we can slowly hope for the return of old life habits and daily small rituals.

I can’t wait to see and hug my dear friends again, whom I haven’t seen for more than a year, and that we will be able to enjoy some of our little joys that make life more interesting.

In the previous post, I started the story of the famous Italian brand Aida Barni, which is a symbol of elegance and sophistication due to its perfect sweaters and fashion accessories made of the highest quality wool – cashmere.

For several days now, I have been receiving your messages asking for advice on how to maintain cashmere items. I believe that each of us owns something that is made of this noble natural material.

Due to its exceptional softness, quality and durability, this material has fascinated people for centuries, but many people are still not instructed on how to properly maintain things made of cashmere.

Cashmere is a material that is pleasant for the skin, light and a good heat saver. I don’t know if you knew that cashmere is even up to eight times warmer than wool. Things made of real cashmere do not change their original shape and colors do not fade, but it is therefore attractive to guests we do not want in our homes – moths.

Cashmere items need to be aired out from time to time, it would be best to periodically take out your favorite cashmere items on your dryers that we have on the terraces to ventilate well and thus reduce the chance of encountering moths.

Did you perhaps know how cashmere is made? Cashmere is obtained from a domestic species of goat that originates from the Kashmir region (a border region located on the border zone of India, Pakistan and China). Cashmere fiber is fine, shiny and elastic.

The natural color of the fibers varies from white to grayish color shades. Once a year, the cashmere goat is combed and then fibers of different lengths are separated. Cashmere is a specific and limited natural raw material.

Each goat produces only a few meters of these precious fibers, which is the main reason for the preciousness of cashmere. Females produce less fiber, but they are also of better quality. The finest mohair fiber is used in the textile industry, for the production of sweaters, scarves, shawls, gloves, hats, coats and coats.

Now we come to the part that interests us all the most, and that is MAINTENANCE instructions. Cashmere items are beautiful, eye-catching and high-quality, and in order to stay that way and attract the eyes of people on the street, you need to follow these tips to maintain:

Washing: I advise you to wash cashmere by hand at a temperature of 20-25 degrees, in a mild solution of lukewarm water and a special detergent for washing wool and silk.

If you can’t find this type of detergent, you can use an ordinary shampoo for children, which is gentle and will not damage the cashmere fibers due to its pH value. Of course, there are specialized detergents for washing cashmere, pH neutral, which prevent swelling and felting of the fabric, but they are a bit more expensive and you need to find them in specialized stores.

Drying: Do not strain, knead or wrap freshly washed cashmere fabrics. After washing, leave the item stretched out on a towel. Do not dry your favorite cashmere items in the tumble dryer, or on the radiator, or expose it directly to sunlight.

Ironing: If you want your cashmere items to be beautiful and soft for years to come, my honest advice is NOT to IRON cashmere items.

The Aida Barni brand is synonymous with the luxury and quality of exclusive cashmere yarn, a material that has fascinated all fashion lovers for centuries.

Aida Barni uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines.

You have had the opportunity to see this incredible Ématelier watch in previous posts, which, in addition to faithfully showing the time, is also a real master-piece of art that adorns the hand. My new friend Jaguar from the special collection “Kingdom” is a watch that was handmade in faraway Canada in the main workshop of Ématelier, a brand behind which stands a passionate watch lover, founder Alex Landa.

This time I decided to change the bracelet and show you what this beautiful watch looks like with an elegant black bracelet. If you want to get better acquainted with this brand, read the story of this unusual realm where time and creativity know no boundaries – link.

Today’s post contains the word elegance in its title, and do we know what that term means. Elegance is hard to “mold”, but I will try to present you with some basic definition. Elegance basically means one type of beauty that embodies simplicity.

Elegance is often used as a “measure” of taste, especially in the visual sense, decorative arts, literature, science and aesthetics. Elegant things often show refined grace and suggest a certain maturity, and in the case of aesthetics and science it means a deep understanding of objects and phenomena.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this second fashion story in 2021. How did you like this outfit of mine today? I hope you have learned something new and that in addition to the definition of elegance and tips for keeping things out of cashmere, you have learned something else.

I really tried to prepare this clothing combination for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story!

I take this opportunity to draw your attention to the care and protection of yourself and your beloved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just another bad dream that we have successfully forgotten!

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by walking around the city every day, on low-traffic streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and 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 page. Stay tuned!

Best,
Mr.M

Aida Barni: Italian Sophisticated Dreams are made of cashmere…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! At the very beginning, I would like to wish you all the best! Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart. I hope that all your wishes will come true and that we will stay healthy and happy together with the hope that the new year will bring some new positive things that make us all satisfied.

During this winter season on my blog you had the opportunity to meet some new, interesting fashion brands that deserve to be noticed for their exceptional quality and impressive design.

In the previous months, I presented on my blog a various fashion labels from Italy, such as the fashion house MooRER from romantic Verona and a specialized workshop for making leather gloves Restelli from the Italian capital of fashion – Milan.

Do you know what Annapurna means? Have you ever heard for this word? Annapurna is a name that evokes extraordinary landscapes and in particular, a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes one peak over 8,000 metres where goats grow their thick protective fleece hiding the soft, warm “duvet” that has made them so famous.

Annapurna is also represent an imaginative and fascinating name for a company that produces high quality knitwear made of the finest cashmere. A name of promise then, a symbol of a target to achieve for a woman – Ms. Aida Barni, who decided to enter the business world at the end of the seventies at the top of a difficult sector of the market.

Today is a special day for me because the brand Aida Barni joins to my small fashion network called Mr.M. The Aida Barni brand is synonymous with the luxury and quality of exclusive cashmere yarn, a material that has fascinated all fashion lovers for centuries.

Many years of experience and knowledge about the origin and processing of yarn have enabled the Aida Barni brand to become one of the leading brands of top knits in the fashion world. Aida Barni, an Italian famous designer, has published a book with numerous illustrations that aims to promote her unique brand and cashmere, one of the most precious natural materials in the world.

The Aida Barni brand operates under the company name of the Annapurna fashion group, which was founded in 1978. The Annapurna group has become one of the most famous Italian and world leading manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear. The Annapurna Spa fashion group consists of the Annapurna and Aida Barni brands.

Aida Barni brand uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines. The current production capacity of Aida Barni and Annapurna brands are about 120,000 pieces per year, which you have to admit is impressive. The entire production process takes place in Italy, more precisely in the company’s headquarters in the Italian city of Prato.

If you want to be up to date and find out all the news about new collections that Aida Barni is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

These beautiful gloves which you have opportunity to see in today’s post have arrived from Italy, made in a great combination of cashmere and suede leather, which were made with great love in a family specialized workshop for making gloves. Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art.

Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years! Ms. Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and love for beautiful masterpieces that last!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with a tradition and history full of love and patience that have no price.

Beloved Ématelier masterpiece Jaguar from the limited collection “Kingdom” you previously have seen in my last blog post, which, in addition showing the right time, is also a real little work of art that adorns the hand. I think that this Ématelier Jaguar watch fit perfectly with the rest of this outfit and that this incredible hand-painted dial brought a bit of cheerful colors to this cold winter day.

Of course, as I mentioned at the very beginning of this post, I founded my small and chosen Italian company with the Italian brand MooRER who introduced me to my new friend Morris.

I have to be honest and admit that you’ve seen Morris more than me, but that was justified because this is an exceptional model of jacket that can be worn for a long time because this is a timeless classic model.

I advise you to have on mind my friendly advice due to the current aggravation of the health situation in almost all European countries and countries around the world as well. 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.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by walking around the city every day, on low-traffic streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and wear a mask.

I take this opportunity to draw your attention to the care and protection of yourself and your beloved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just another bad dream that we have successfully forgotten!

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this first fashion story in 2021. How did you like this outfit which I showed you today? I really tried to prepare this Italian style outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story!
