Fashion Diaries: Stylish Fall Look with MYTHERESA and Fratelli Rossetti

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for the first November fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! Today I have a well-known guest that you all love to see in fashion stories on the blog – dear Mrs. Mom. In cooperation with the shopping platform MYTHERESA and the Italian footwear brand Fratelli Rossetti, we are writing the first pages of our Fashion Diaries this FW22 season!

Fall is considered to be one of the most interesting periods when people can play with fashion. It’s a transitional period and the temperatures are quite comfortable to wear some favorite pieces that we love, but we can’t wear during the cold and snowy winter season.

A coat is one of the fashion items that each of us should have in our wardrobe. Eternal classics, elegance and simplicity are just some of the many epithets that adorn this iconic fashion piece which, if properly maintained and stored, can last for years.

In collaboration with the MYTHERESA online luxury shopping platform, today you have the opportunity to see a iconic Max Mara cashmere Jerry coat model that is made of 100% cashmere on my mom, while I decided on my new coat that you had the opportunity to see in my fashion adventures in Moldova – André Maurice.

Max Mara is a world famous Italian fashion brand. It was founded in 1951 in Reggio Emilia by Mr. Achille Maramotti. This legendary brand sponsors and awards the Max Mara Women’s Art Award. Achille Maramotti began creating wardrobes in 1947, and officially founded the Max Mara fashion house in 1951. How did the brand name come about?

The second word of the brand – “Mara” was derived from Mr. Maramotti surname, while “Max” referred to Count Max, a local legend, who was rarely sober, but always so classy and stylish! Mr. Maramotti was one of the first to see that the future of women’s fashion lay in the mass production of designer quality clothing. He also wanted to put his Max Mara brand at the top in front of the names of individual designers, although he hired Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Dolce & Gabbana, Narciso Rodriguez and Anne Marie Beretta. The company is still in the hands of the family and is one of the best family fashion businesses in the world.

The Max Mara group has 35 brands in its fashion empire, of which the Max Mara brand remains the heart of the company to this day. Other brands include Sportmax, Sportmax Code, Weekend Max Mara, Marella, Pennyblack, iBlues, MAX&Co. and Marina Rinaldi. An interesting information is that Marina Rinaldi is a brand founded in 1980 and named after the greatmother of Mr. Maramotti.

The next brand that I want to present to you and is in the offer of the MYTHERESA online shopping platform is a brand that I am sure there is no person in the world who does not know the value of this supreme classic – Gucci! If we exclude the movie “House of Gucci” that contributed to the massive worldwide euphoria and increased demand for the items of the Italian fashion house Gucci, this brand itself has a special historical value.

I don’t know if you knew, but currently all the world’s famous fashion houses have “revived” – re-editions in their new collections some of their famous iconic models that have gained incredible popularity in the world, and in this way the companies refresh some of their old models with some novelties and on that way people have the opportunity to buy a piece that they were not able to buy before. So the fashion house Gucci decided to bring back some of its famous models such as Jackie, Stirrup and Horsebit 1955 in its new collection.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see the Horsebit Hobo model from the Gucci fashion house, which is made of the highest quality python leather and gold accessories. Dear Mrs. Mom couldn’t believe it when we opened the package because she didn’t expect to get this bag, because she thought she would get a Jackie leather bag and she was a little sad about that, but her smile and hours of looking at mirror with this bag were more than enough signs that surprise mission accomplished!

Of course, the piece that every stylish woman needs and that helps you “hide” from the world when you need a break – a sunglasses! Mom was expecting a bag and a coat, but while picking out pieces I saw this famous Panthère de Cartier model of sunglasses, I just couldn’t resist giving my mom a piece like that that can be passed down to generations to come! MYTHERESA has an incredible offer of the most iconic models from the Cartier Eyewear Collection.

We have come to our favorite topic – shoes! I believe that by now you have thoroughly familiarized yourself with the offer of the famous Italian brand of footwear and leather goods Fratelli Rossetti, and today I present to you the “crown” of their latest Fall-Winter 2022/23 men’s collection, the Brera model, which is made with special embroidery. These shoes are unisex and for men they are available in navy, while for women the same model can be found in navy, black and burgundy (officially on the website they are listed as leather color, but for me personally they are some color between burgundy and brown, since velvet is quite shiny, so you can never be sure of the right shade).

My mom in today’s post is wearing their classic double-buckle Brogue Beck model in a soft cognac color. This model is made of soft brushed leather with an optical illusion and two-tone effect and decorative studs. Besides the cognac color, Fratelli Rossetti made this model in olive and black.

Let’s determine what we learned and remember how the Brera model got its name? Brera is the “art district” of Milan, where in the 60s sculptors, painters and writers tried to leave their mark, with new languages ​​and new forms. Its liberal and open atmosphere inspired the creation of the “Brera”, the fringed moccasin, a style revolution just beginning to rediscover its love of life. Like an artistic composition, Brera combines different materials and colors. This special mix of materials and shapes makes the moccasin one of the most successful chapters in Fratelli Rossetti’s history.

During the creation of the new collection for the autumn-winter season, the design team of Fratelli Rossetti decided to go a step further and bring the Brera loafers model to perfection and complete it with unusual colorful hand embroidery. The main material of the outer part of the shoe is soft velvet and a special hand embroidery is done over it, while the inner part of the shoe, like every other Fratelli Rossetti shoe, is made of the highest quality leather. Since I realized in Moldova that my Brera is dark blue, I had to find matching elegant trousers and I managed to find them on the MYTHERESA platform, so these navy Dolce & Gabbana trousers completed my outfit today.

André Maurice: An Italian Fashion Story inspired by Dreams and Genius Loci…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great! I believe that you are ready for a new fashion adventure and a new dose of elegant fashion that you are used to seeing on the Mr.M blog. The first outfit post of this season was in the spirit of everyday sporty elegance, but today I’m taking you on the well-known paths of elegance and refinement and I’m introducing you to a new Italian brand which I am sure will take your breath away with their iconic designs.

At the very beginning of today’s fashion adventure, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Invest Moldova Agency and the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Moldova for the kind invitation and the incredible experience to get to know the Moldovan culture and customs better. It is a great honor and pleasure that I had the opportunity to take pictures for my first fashion stories this season on the streets of Chisinau and other famous localities in this wonderful small country with a big heart in Eastern Europe!

We all know that Italy is the cradle of fashion and style, there is no person who does not like the touch of quality cashmere during the cold autumn and winter period, that’s why today I present to you an Italian brand that celebrated its century of existence last year, which you must admit is a big thing for a fashion brand .

What makes a fashion brand? Is it the eternal search for inspiration, which everyone desperately needs in the fashion industry to stay at the top? Is it the art of creating and creating a new fashion culture? Is it respecting and maintaining tradition and heritage? The answers to all these and many other questions were found by an Italian brand that you will have the opportunity to meet today on the Mr.M blog – André Maurice.

This is not a story about a brand, this is a story about the pride and gratitude that underpins this brand and its given success. Everything that is good has its beginning, these are the roots that we are proud of and that inspire us to move on. The first fashion pages of the André Maurice story are written by Mrs. Giulia Allario in Scagliotti, who started the artisan production of knitwear in her house in Roncaglia, on the hills of Monferrato, exactly a century ago.

It’s not an ordinary year, it’s a historical point, because in 1921 the great Italian crisis begins due to the post-war situation, where unemployment increased several times compared to previous years and the consumer market was very unstable due to the liquidity crisis among the population. Mrs. Allario was a courageous woman with vision and good intuition as she undertook good entrepreneurial activities to launch her dream.

In the pictures that you will have the opportunity to see in today’s post on the sweater, you will see 2 words that are very important for this brand and that marked the existence of this unusual Italian knitwear brand – Genius Loci.

What does this term mean and why are these two words important to this brand? Roots that are well anchored in the territory where we were born and now live, a huge inspiration arises that is perfectly identified with the concept of Genius Loci, which in translation means “spirit of the place”. Like the flow of a great river, which always and inexorably reaches the sea in a slow and often imperceptible course, Genius Loci penetrates the soul of man with changing nuances throughout his existence, shaping his thoughts, behaviors and aspirations.

It is precisely because of all this that many people who have bought an André Maurice piece of clothing realize that they have received more than a piece of ordinary fashion item, but have the opportunity to wear an exclusive and unrepeatable valuable gift of knowledge. The story of this brand is unique because with the influence of light, colors, smells, atmosphere, shapes and traditions of the territory of origin – Monferrato – combined with the constant desire to discover and face the whole world, we get a unique fashion story that has been passed down from generation to generation for 4 generations.

Art and beauty, culture and knowledge; these are the axioms that inspire the André Maurice team every day, striving never to indulge in useless compromises or useless shortcuts. Art and culture, in any of its forms, are often able to generate the same surprising sense of satisfaction that has always inspired the André Maurice team in thinking, designing and creating all collections for a century. In this creative and unusual way, the art and culture of knitting can convey the spirit, love and tradition of the precious hands that participated with a lot of emotion in the process of creation.

Tradition is something that is the basic starting point of the André Maurice brand. Gestures, rituals and customs that are repeated and transferred indefinitely, creating a nostalgic illusion of stopping time, which tirelessly chases modernity. Tradition has always been a source of inspiration for the André Maurice team, as an invisible glue between past and present, as well as a deep groove towards the future. By repeating everyday gestures, they remain faithful witnesses of the material and the spiritual burden that should be shown in the work and transmitted over time to generations to come.

An accessory that becomes recognizable may be a small, intimate and personal element, but it is extremely important to complete the perfect overall image of the brand – a detail. Inspiration arising from detail cannot be built and finds its full legitimacy only in a state of mind that succeeds in raising it to the point success. A detail, so small and tiny, can stimulate the senses, impose a new, inevitable and a fascinating new way of changing the perspective of seeing things. Details can change the whole picture, and that’s why André Maurice works tirelessly every day to bring the perfection of his creation to the perfection of his creations for his consumers. By buying André Maurice clothing, you’re not just buying a product, you’re becoming a member of a large fashion family with a long tradition.

The André Maurice brand carefully selects unique raw materials that carry with them a long tradition and have worldwide recognition for their quality, finesse and the prestige that accompanies it. The inspiration for cashmere begins far away, in the magical highlands of far Mongolia, where natural evolution has led cashmere goats to protect themselves from the harshness of the climate by creating two layers of fur – a superficial one, with thicker and stiffer hair, and one layer closer to the body, composed of short, thin and a very warm center, which is called a “quilt”.

In the spring, during moulting, the shepherds comb the Hircus goats, extracting the most precious hair and this is just the beginning of obtaining a precious André Maurice garment that, with proper care and maintenance, you can wear for years.

André Maurice as a brand that cherishes true values and respects tradition and the spirit of heritage is woven into every piece of clothing, the tradition, culture, and fragrances of Monferrato. Find your Genius Loci and create some of your unforgettable moments to remember this winter season with garments from the latest André Maurice FW22 collection and warm your dreams with the softest cashmere.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see the André Maurice camel color coat, which is made of the finest 100% cashmere, and the “Genius Loci” sweater in lovely shades of beige and camel colours.

If you want to stay updated and find out what all the news about latest collections of luxury Italian knitwear brand André Maurice has in its offer this season for dear ladies and gentlemen, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram. Also you can visit their Online Shop and check out their amazing fashion items!

There is no person in the world who can hide a joy when feels the smell of new Italian leather. Today we reunite again with the Italian family-owned glove workshop Restelli Guanti, a place where art, tradition and the beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of Italian style and way of life. Making gloves is not only a job but also a true art. After 100 years, passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation! Rafaela Restelli has fully embraced the challenges of a new fashion era where the market and way of selling has changed with a deep respect and belief in tradition and love for masterpieces that last!

In today’s post, you had the opportunity to see Restelli gloves made of special peccary leather. These luxurious leather gloves are made of the highest quality leather. The lining of these gloves is made of cashmere. It got a little cold during my visit to Moldova, so I decided to protect my hands better and walk around in my unusual cognac-colored gloves, which were extremely warm and a real fashion accessory for this unexpected chill in Chisinau.

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