Aida Barni: Dear Green, I’m Still in Love With You…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new winter fashion story on Mr.M blog! I sincerely hope that you are well and that you are healthy and safe from the current unfavorable health situation with the new strains of the Corona virus. Today’s fashion story will be dedicated to a lime green sweater that radiates exceptional positive energy due to its unusual color.

This unusual cashmere piece was made in Italy in the Annapurna company, which is located in the fairytale town of Prato. Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian cashmere processing. Last winter we enjoyed the beauties of pastel colors, while this year I decided to refresh the cold winter days with bright and unusual colors.

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are a smart “fashion” investment and practical during the 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. Also, sometimes you need to surprise yourself with something new and refresh your life, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, and maybe it’s a new unusual sweater that will bring a smile to your face!

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 only the latest production techniques available on the market, from cashmere 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 district of the same name located in the heart of Italy (central Italy).

“Made in Italy” is more than a production concept, but this brand has proven to be much more than the just perfect cashmere sweater on a store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression to remember.

Annapurna is a name that associates 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 imaginative and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a lifetime 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.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see an unusual neon lime green sweater made of 100% cashmere. A classic model that has a collar in the form of a zippered turtleneck sweater that is ideal for all occasions, whether it is going to work or casual winter city walk around the city, this sweater is the right choice for every modern man with style. This sweater can be worn with classic pants, as I did in today’s post, or with jeans to get a casual everyday look.

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 them 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. Fans of the Aida Barney brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

Aida Barni‘s concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with sophisticated style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-known multibrand shops 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 pure love because you are giving a piece in which love for tradition and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day are woven.

If you want to be updated and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

We started today’s fashion story with a sweater story, but I would like to tell you something more about other fashion details that you have the opportunity to see in this outfit post. You had the opportunity to see the jacket this winter season from the new collection of the fashion house Roberto Cavalli, while the trousers are custom-made of the finest wool and cashmere of the Italian fashion house Brunello Cucinelli.

The shoes that complemented my clothing combination today are Christian Louboutin, which I received from the most famous German online shopping platform Mytheresa. This model is Rantus Orlato made of real python leather from a limited series made in metallic electric blue color.

The bomber jacket fit perfectly with these shoes, just as if it was created by the fashion house Christian Louboutin! If you want to find interesting fashion pieces and special footwear collection you can find it on the Mytheresa online shopping platform where all fashion lovers can find something for themselves!

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it!

I advise you to follow to my advice due to the current health situation with the new strain of Omicron Coronavirus 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 and enjoy the winter magic, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

If you have been vaccinated (2 doses of any vaccine or an additional third booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. The winter season is underway and many have decided to spend the winter city breaks in European cities, I would ask you to respect the local laws related to the health care of the local community.

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. See you soon, stay tuned!

With Love,

Woolrich: We Keep Your Dreams Warm…

My dear fashionistas, happy New 2022 Year! I sincerely hope that the new year will primarily bring us only beautiful things, and let the slightly less beautiful ones remain in the past. I wish you all a lot of health, happiness and love from the bottom of my heart, and the rest will come by itself. I want to thank you and say a big thank you for your support during the previous years and I hope that we will have a good time this year as well.

Today’s post will be dedicated to a new brand that I am sure is familiar to all of you and that you have had the opportunity to notice exceptional pieces of this famous brand with American roots and tradition in Europe and abroad. Today we will meet the Woolrich brand on the Mr.M blog.

Woolrich is a brand that was founded back in 1830 in the United States of America (USA) in the state of Pennsylvania. The basic idea of the brand was to equip people who cultivate an immense passion for nature, who do not see natural elements as a kind of obstacle, but as a life mover. One of the founders of the brand – John Rich once said: “Nature tests and inspires us equally, we are here to encourage our own desire for entertainment and learning about the world around us and of course about ourselves.”

Woolrich is a brand with a long history that has been producing sportswear and outerwear for more than 190 years. This brand is the oldest American outerwear brand. During his first decade of existence, Woolrich mainly created clothes for farmers and wood processors who had to work in extreme climatic conditions.

In addition to them, Woolrich also supplied soldiers during the Civil War with uniforms and blankets that were made from the warmest wool in true American style. True to its heritage, the Woolrich brand is still one of the largest manufacturers when it comes to sportswear and outerwear.

Today, while writing this post, I was thinking about which three words could describe this amazing brand, and I think I came up with the right ones, which are: comfort, durability, resilience combined with simplicity and innovation. This brand nurtures a sporty, but at the same time elegant style that creates various collections every season. Special compositions of natural and artificial fibers create great pieces that are perfect for times when the outside temperatures are low and we need something to keep us warm.

A timeless piece in the Woolrich collection is the Arctic Park, first introduced in 1972, designed to withstand the most extreme temperatures, available with or without a fur collar.

In today’s outfit post you have the opportunity to see the unique Woolrich luxury Polar parka which is made of special Italian eco wool and Loro Piana fabric.

This parka is a unique and iconic winter piece that you should have in your wardrobe. This parka proves top expertise in creating practical pieces that exude modern appeal. Following the example of the legendary Arctic Park, this park you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of exclusive eco-wool Blacksheep, which is specially treated for wind and water resistant finishes produced by the Italian luxury brand Loro Piana.

Fantastic composition of duck down, spacious hood and practical pockets provide exceptional comfort and convenience while going out during the cold winter months. It is important to note that the lining of the pockets of this park is made of a special material that has been treated with Polygiene ViralOff® technology, which will have to destroy over 99% of microbes in a period of two hours.

If you want to be updated what new products Woolrich is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

This winter idyll would not be complete without my dear friends from the company Annapurna, which made this perfect 100% cashmere sweater in its new collection of the Aida Barni brand.

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.

The turtleneck that complemented my today’s outfit is made of cashmere with a special handmade work that takes hours of work and that is why this sweater is so unique and radiates a special dose of “winter” elegance.

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.

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.

If you want to stay tuned and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

Of course, as you could see in some previous stories, my old friend that helps me not to be late, while still having one unusual masterpiece on hand, is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life in general.

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! 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 a love for lasting masterpieces!

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

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered the beauty of winter shades of brown color together and I hope you got the inspiration for your perfect winter outfit! We will continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog soon! How did you like my outfit today?

Aida Barni: Sophisticated Expression of a Chic Way of Living…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion story on Mr.M blog! Winter is my favorite time of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers” and when we can take out of the wardrobe our favorite knitted pieces that keep us warm during the cold winter temperatures.

I started today’s adventure with old friends, I’m sure you remember the Aida Barni brand, synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian cashmere. Last winter we enjoyed the beauties of pastel colors, while this year I decided to paint the cold winter days with bright colors.

If you want to remind yourself of the stories from the previous winter season with Aida Barni, visit this link. I’m sure you will enjoy!

I wanted to make you happy with a new fashion story for a good fashionable start of the week, because December is the sweetest month of the year, when we are looking for gifts for our loved ones. In the previous post, I gave you one of the suggestions – perfume.

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the 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 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.

In today’s blog post you have the opportunity to see a red turtleneck sweater made of 100% cashmere with special embroidery and work on the front in the form of embroidered lines reminiscent of the idyllic winter in the mountains – beautiful natural glaciers that you have the opportunity to see in every mountain region.

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.

I completed today’s outfit with a Brunello Cucinelli down jacket with fur trim that may be black and at first sight you think that black is not interesting, but the materials which were used for this incredible “piumino” (Italian word for down jacket) will do everything to change your mind.

The unusual combination of material and natural fur on the collar makes this jacket the perfect piece for cold winter days. With this jacket, you will forget whether you went out for just a walk or went to work, because the secret discreet views of passers-by will give the impression that you are on the runway.

During the shooting of this outfit look, a lot of people asked me about the jacket and the turtleneck, they were standing out pieces of this outfit.

Of course, as a big fan of backpacks, this year I put this exceptional piece of the famous French fashion house Louis Vuitton on my wish list and my sister decided to be my Santa Claus this year and give me this beautiful backpack that I am sure I will wear for a long time. I promise that I will do my best to fit it as well as possible with my outfits.

The iconic LV Monogram print and the new model are a great combination which was the right decision during the creation of the new collection of this prestigious French fashion house.

The jeans also came from Italy, a gift from my dear friends from the fashion house MooRER, with whom we will meet again this winter fashion season as well. Simply, some good habits do not need to be changed!

Fashion Diary: The Beauty and Elegance of the Inevitable shades of black…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! How are you? This is an question that we forgot to include as one of the most important question for maintaining mental health due to the fast and modern lifestyle and our own daily problems.

I sincerely hope you are well and that you are healthy and safe. Today’s post will be dedicated to one of the most famous colors without which the fashion season cannot pass – black. I believe that there is no person who does not have some piece of clothing or accessories in the simple black color.

“What is the color of your clothes, such is your life”, a favorite statement of a friend of mine that I have known for almost 20 years. This sentence always comes to my mind when it comes time to buy a new piece of clothing or combine a wardrobe for the shooting.

Some scientists have indeed discovered that the colors we prefer are only a reflection of our personality and character. Each of the colors in the palette has a specific meaning and shows what kind of mental circuit you are.

I believe that all of you who have been following my blog for years know that pastel shades, red and blue are my favorite colors and that you have rarely had the opportunity to see me in black and gray tones.

I have to be honest with you and admit that I like to see darker clothes of black and gray tones on other people because I “convinced” myself that it doesn’t suit me because I’m dark and that I have a lighter skin tone so that those darker colors don’t suit me quite well.

My friends tell me that I am exaggerating and that I should wear this color more often because they think it fits me nicely, especially since black and gray “narrow” in the waist, so finally we have something to look forward to with a slightly wider waist!

My today’s outfit is a mixture of street and elegant style. The jacket is a typical piece that all street fashion lovers like to have in their wardrobes. The only difference is the material and the way it is made, so this piece can be presented in some way to fans of elegance style because of its classic black color and beautiful cashmere, which gives this jacket a special elegance.

The turtleneck sweater is a classic piece that each of us has in our wardrobe, regardless of gender, because it is the most comfortable and warmest thing that alleviates these low winter temperatures. This beautiful skateboard is from the new Aida Barni autumn-winter 2021/22 collection. You have had the opportunity to see their sweaters in previous posts, I believe you have found your favorite piece of cashmere so far! 🙂

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 entire production process takes place in Italy, more precisely in the company’s headquarters in the Italian city of Prato.

If you want to stay updated and find out all the news about new collections that Aida Barni is preparing, just follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

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 cut of trousers is my favorite and I try to maintain that style faithfully for years. Some people think this kind of style it is too formal and boring but my opinion is that elegance will never be surpassed and underestimated at all.

With these trousers, in addition to the exceptional cut, I also like the combination of gray, black and white with the use of beautiful materials for which the Loro Piana brand is well known.

OUTFIT

Jacket: Burberry

Sweater: Aida Barni

Watch: Ematelier

Trousers: Loro Piana

Shoes: Roberto Botticelli

These elegant Roberto Botticelli shoes are made of the finest exotic snakeskin combined with soft suede leather. The black color emphasizes the beauty and elegance of these shoes that can be worn on absolutely any occasion, whether it is a walk around the city, a business meeting or a special occasion like a reception, these shoes can really respond to any fashion challenge!

Today we will learn some characteristics of black color together. If you remember that I mentioned at the very beginning of this blog post, all the colors from the palette have a certain meaning and characterize us as a person.

Research has shown that people who more prefer to wear black do so because they want to give the impression of special authority and power as well. Such people want to leave a good impression and captivate with sophistication, elegance and mystery.

Also, some research has shown that people who wear black are more attractive to others because they give the impression of an emotionally stable person and social stability.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special post where together we have discovered some facts about the black color that most people love. How did you like this gray-black combination of mine today?

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 from faraway Russia!

I advise you 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.

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,

Letter from Skopje: Irresistible winter elegance in the heart of Northern Macedonia…

My dear travelers and fashionistas welcome to the new story on Mr.M blog. In today’s post, we will say goodbye to the capital of Northern Macedonia – Skopje, in the hope that we will soon return to this beautiful city. Skopje is the city that delights you and because of the warm welcome you will always feel like you are at home.

Macedonians are known as very good and cordial hosts, so you will always be happy to return to this beautiful country. The fashion story I present to you today is similar to the previous one, I kept most of the pieces of clothing, I just changed certain fashion accessories.

With these two fashion outfits from Northern Macedonia, I wanted to show you the charms of winter elegance that you can achieve when traveling during the winter, when it is honestly not easy to fulfill due to lower temperatures and weather conditions.

I believe that each of you, when traveling somewhere during the winter, of course, if we exclude trips to exotic destinations, wants to travel light with less luggage, because winter outerwear and clothing can be “bulky” and a bit impractical. That is why I decided to show you how I “packed” for the winter idyll in Northern Macedonia.

I’m sure you will recognize most of the garments from the previous post, the leather jacket – parka by the Italian brand Corneliani is a star this time as well. If you want to remind yourself of the story of this unusual brand, which is considered one of the most prestigious men’s clothing brands today, I am sure you will be enchanted by their story.

Since I have had this jacket for almost two months and I wear it regularly, I have to admit that this is one of the lightest and most practical winter leather jackets I have had the opportunity to wear. The jacket can even be packed in a suitcase, even when it is nicely packed it can take up little space in the suitcase, believe me for that skill of packing it took me years of learning from my mistakes and it is a new life experience for me.

The fur on the jacket is exceptional and very quickly returns to its original form, since I believe we all know what a jacket that comes out of a closet or suitcase looks like. Since the jacket is made of the highest quality leather and due to the special treatment and coating, the leather is soft and will not wrinkle, which is why I appreciate this winter piece even more.

The jacket is one of the most important winter pieces, but it is also important which item you will bring in direct contact with your skin. The skin is the largest human organ that we must take care of, how it will look and how healthy it will be depends on ourselves and we must do our best to take care.

This winter was special for me because I had the opportunity to feel the highest quality cashmere found in Aida Barni sweaters, a brand that delights with its fantastic creations.

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 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.

Fashionable Letter from Skopje: Stylish Harmony in gentle Shades of Brown…

Today I have prepared for you a fashion story about an Italian brand that I am sure you have heard at least once in your life – Corneliani.

After I received this jacket, I realized that it would fit perfectly in the first days of January that I spent near the “lively” Vardar river in Skopje.

Corneliani is a famous Italian manufacturer of men’s clothing, which has become recognizable for Made-to-order custom suits and sports coats. This brand is intended for men who want to own a fashionable piece that is primarily of high quality, made of the best materials and designs that simply never go out of style.

Every Corneliani piece of clothing is perfect for any occasion and be sure that you will always be in trend, regardless of the rapid changes that are characteristic in the world of fashion.

The fashion story of this unusual family business dates back to the 1930s, when Mr. Alfredo Corneliani founded a craft workshop that made raincoats and coats. Unfortunately, this workshop stopped working due to the outbreak of World War II.

Alfred’s sons Claudio and Carl Alberto later founded the Corneliani fashion house in Mantova in 1958.

Two years are significant in the history of this well-known Italian brand, which represents a turning point in the work of this brand: in 1985, the company founded Corneliani USA Inc. in New York to distribute its items throughout the United States and Canada.

A few years later, in 1997, Corneliani opened his main flagship store in the well-known Via Montenapoleone fashion street, in Milan.

After numerous successes and rewards for their work and maintaining the principles of Italian tradition, style and fashion, today Corneliani employs more than 600 tailors in Mantova, where the basic product line of the fashion house Corneliani is still produced. You can find a list of Corneliani stores throughout Europe and the world at this link.

Of course, during this winter season, I spent a lot of time with these lovely leather friends of mine – gloves, which are made by another small family company, Restelli. This family brand is trying to bring its great passion for making gloves closer to all fans of these fashion pieces around the Europe and world as well.

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! Raffaela 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.

Another Italian brand that marked this winter season is Aida Barni, a luxury brand that delights with its fantastic sweaters made of the highest quality cashmere. You had the opportunity to see this sweater in the first post that was published at the beginning of January this year, how this sweater looked with the MooRER jacket, you can see at the link.

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 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.

Since I am a double virgo and for my zodiac sign people mostly say that we are extremely accurate and that we cannot survive if we are late somewhere, I decided to proudly carry an Epos watch on my trip to Skopje, a Swiss brand that makes an incredible watches.

This is one of my faithful allies that helps me not to be late, and at the same time to have one unusual masterpiece on hand is a wrist watch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

I advise you 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.

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.

Fashion Diary: A Fashionable Moment of Reunion with Nature…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! The holidays are over and it’s time for some work. In previous posts during this pandemic, I have tried to draw your attention and point out the importance of maintaining health and physical fitness during this hard times.

In addition to the use of supplements such as vitamins that we all buy in pharmacies, staying outdoors, especially in the natural environment on green areas or by rivers, can contribute to the improvement of the general health of the organism.

Scientists believe that being outdoors has a beneficial effect on people’s mental health. When you have free time for yourself, take an hour or two of your time and walk by the river or stay in nature.

Of course, in addition to a good mood, for staying outdoors you need warm clothing items that will allow you to spend your stay in nature in the best possible way.

Today, we also will spend some fashionable time with the Italian brand Aida Barni, which makes exceptional pieces of cashmere. This brand has become a symbol of elegance and sophistication due to its perfect sweaters and fashion accessories made of the highest quality wool – cashmere.

Aida Barni uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines. If you want to be up to date and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

If by any chance you missed previous posts or want to be reminded of some details, you can read the posts at the following links. Tips for maintaining your favorite pieces of cashmere – link. In case you want to find out more information about the Aida Barni and Annapurna brands, you can read the story of these brands at this link.

In addition to warm sweaters, during the winter we all hang out with jackets or shearling jackets, depending on personal preferences. This time I decided to complete my outfit with the leather shearling jacket that I have had in my wardrobe for years, and every time I see it in the closet, I admire how some things just don’t change over time.

Of course, as you could see in one of the previous outfit posts, my new friend that helps me not to be late, while still having one unusual stylish masterpiece on hand, is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life in general.

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! 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 a love for lasting masterpieces!

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

Fashion trends vary depending on the season and weather conditions. Winter fashion trends are simple and the most important thing is to “respect” the rule that the most important thing is to be “layered dressed” due to the low temperatures that prevail during the winter period.

When it comes to winter fashion outfits, brown, navy blue and lighter neutral shades predominate in my wardrobe, with which I welcome cold winter days.

Today’s post contains the word nature in its title, and do we know what that term really means? Nature is, in the broadest sense, the equivalent of the natural world, the physical universe, the material world, or the material universe.

Nature as a term refers to the phenomenon of the physical world, as well as to life in general. This term usually does not include manufactured objects, nor human interaction, unless it qualifies as such, such as “human nature”. The notion of nature and the natural is also the opposite of the notion of the supernatural.

Today, in the everyday use of the word “nature”, geology is often referred to as the term wilderness. Nature can also define the general realm of various types of plants and animals, and in some cases the processes associated with inanimate objects – the way certain types of things exist such as the time and geology of the Earth, and the matter and energy of which all things are made.

Nature often means “natural environment” or wilderness made up of wild animals, rocks, forests, beaches and in general all things that have not been significantly altered by human intervention or those that last despite human interaction.

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

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.

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.

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.
