Fashion Diaries: Wish upon a Berliner Style…

Dear fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I am sure that the previous week passed in a good mood and that the preparations for the weekend are over and you are ready for a weekend.

Today’s fashion story will be dedicated to the fashion that is popular in the capital of Germany. Many fashion experts consider Berlin to be the center of urban and street fashion. Berlin as a fashion center is quite “modest” because unlike other European fashion capitals Milan, Paris and London, Berlin is unique, authentic and really simple.

The first and basic “fashion” rule in Berliner style (read like the entire German fashion world) is practicality and comfort. In addition, the clothes must be comfortable. Germans exclusively like to feel comfortable in the clothes they wear, they do not like tight and uncomfortable shoes, tight and short jackets and skinny jeans are not part of Berliner fashion trend.

Germans like practical, durable and comfortable clothes, to feel free in their “second skin” for a whole time. Since the sun finally came to Berlin, now the autumn tracksuits have been replaced by summer jeans and silk “pajama tracksuits”. When I say silk pajamas, I mean those colorful silk T-shirts and pants that we can easily put on and go out on the street.

In today’s post you can see how the average German dresses during warmer, sunny days, which believe me there are not many in Germany because springs and summers are much colder here with precipitation so you feel like you live somewhere between rainy autumn and cold winter with some small number of sunny days all year round. Over time, people get used to the climate and learn to appreciate every sunny day you welcome in Berlin.

Speaking of the concept of casual and comfort Berliner street fashion, today I decided to wear my new SVEVO silk T-shirt, which has a classic and timeless cut. T-shirt made of the highest quality silk, short sleeves with a ribbed bottom and cuffs.

During the production of SVEVO products in the weaving process, special very small holes are made on the back of each garment in a number that varies depending on the size, starting with one hole for size 46.

It is a trademark of the SVEVO brand, regardless of use and condition of the product, even in case of loss of the label, it is always possible to determine the originality of the garments of the Italian brand SVEVO Parma.

Resort knitted jacket is one of the best-selling clothing items of the SVEVO Italian brand. This type of jacket is a necessary item in the wardrobe of every man. The characteristics of this jacket are elegant and simple lines with decorative seams that fit every man perfectly and easily fit into a sophisticated modern image of a man.

This jacket is ideal for all transition periods, when you are not sure what to wear when you leave the house, and it is too warm outside for a winter jacket, but it is not warm enough for short sleeves.

Knitwear is a true art that is passed from generation to generation, a secret that is kept among a select few who, with their exceptional skill and intense passion, still manage to weave a new reality and spread love for finished knitted works of art among people around the world.

If you missed my previous story on the blog, you can visit this link and read the amazing story about this unusual knitwear Italian brand. A story about the brand with a long family tradition, exceptional quality and constant innovation.

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

Today’s casual, street elegance outfit was complemented by a watch from the Schroeder 1877 collection “Gentlemen Renaissance” model Broker with a rose gold case and a brown crocodile bracelet.

This watch was created from a scratch that was researched and developed over the years by engineer Fred-Eric Bolzli. The watch shows local times in the cities where Schroeder Joailliers jewelry products are represented: Luxembourg, Moscow, Dubai, Shanghai, Tokyo and New York.

Even this time I had no dilemma which watch I would put on my hand because the Schroeder The Broker watch was made as an ideal combination of the inevitable rose gold color case with a bracelet of an iconic and timeless dark brown color.

For all those who did not follow my previous fashion adventures, this watch is a novelty, so I suggest you read the Schroeder story and get acquainted with this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their incredible story.

I used these wonderful sunny spring days in Berlin to walk my velvet sneakers, which I was a little “cold” at first because I was afraid that velvet would fit my style. The first thing on my mind was maintenance, but as they survived a couple of unexpected rainy walks they have now become my favorite piece!

Of course, the navy blue color with these golden details easily blended in with the other pieces in today’s outfit and the velvet further emphasized the elegant note of this outfit.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another myth about the German cult of street fashion! How did you like my elegant-casual outfit today?

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart 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 simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, 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 ME page. Stay tuned!

SVEVO Parma: Italian Elegance and Sophistication woven into every piece of fine yarns…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! I believe that all the preparations for the weekend are over and that this working week passed in a good mood! Earlier this week, I received an email from one reader who regularly follows my blog and who sent me interesting suggestions that can be introduced on the Mr.M blog soon. The last sentence in her letter brought a smile to my face: “Dear Marko, believe me, even the birds know for Friday is the day when you send us your new letters and it is the time to relax, grab favorite drink and candies and enjoy in new fashion stories on Mr.M blog! ”.

I honestly can’t describe my happiness when I read your emails because I’m glad that my blog work brightens someone’s day and that you use your free time to embark with me on fashion adventures and travel adventures around the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful words and I hope that we will hang out so nicely in the years to come!

Today I present to you an interesting brand from Italy that produces knitwear pieces for men. The SVEVO Parma brand is linked to the history of the Somma fashion family, which in the last century turned their production talent into a true art of producing knitwear.

The founder of the brand is Nicola Somma, a skilled knitwear merchant who arrived in 1892 in the Italian city of Bari and opened the doors of his fashion empire in the heart of the city in Via Abate Gimma street with his vision full of intuition and determination.

The origin of the name of the brand itself is inspired by the famous Norman-Swabian (Normanno Svevo in Italian) Castle of Bari.

This fashion story began in Bari, when Mr. Nicola Somma opened a chain of knitwear stores for men and women, not knowing that he started the “fashion wheel” of an Italian company that still focuses on the values of quality and authenticity.

In 1955, his son Mario Somma founded the first SVEVO knitwear factory for the production of high-quality knitwear, which was made by professional local craftsmen. Thus, from the center of Puglia, a country rich in resources and resourcefulness, threads of sophistication and excellent craftsmanship are developed, destined to weave the future of the company.

More than 60 years ago, in 1958 to be precise, Mr. Nicola, Mario’s son and the eldest son of the third generation of the Somma family, opened a new factory dedicated to women’s knitwear and as an additional production unit of the men’s knitwear collection.

The news of that endeavor at that time was reported by many media in Italy, who described the new supply chain as “classic and delicate fashion steps, where embroidery and weaving are done on old looms with new methods.” With these methods, sweaters, cardigans and other knitted pieces get shine and softness with incomparable quality and do not shrink. ”

In the early 1990s, Nicola ventured into an even more ambitious endeavor, moving to the fashion doors of Parma to write another new chapter in the production history of the Somma family.

In Fidenza, in the historic knitting factory from the 1950s, which was taken over by the Somma family, Nicola starts a new production unit SVEVO together with his son Mario and daughter Vittoria Somma.

In the last 20 years, the company has achieved exceptional results, in Italy and abroad, implementing production capacities and lending its know how technology to the largest luxury fashion houses around the world.

SVEVO‘s latest task based on the principle of developing production “challenge in challenge” is to recognize continuity and tradition as the most authentic sign of quality and comfort, continuing to progress towards the future in a significant opening to progress and fashion industrialization.

The new generation, Mario and Vittoria Somma, manage all activities, from design, production, distribution, branding and communication with partners and consumers.

This is the fourth generation of the Somma family, which preserves the SVEVO brand and passes on the brand’s heritage to the next generation.

The SVEVO brand is always in constant motion between the conception of new fashion lines and the conquest of new international markets, but the brand still relies on a centralized and direct management strategy. Mr. Mario Somma manages the affairs of the creative, commercial and marketing strategy, while Ms. Vittoria Somma directs the development of the collections and all phases of the production chain of the fashion house SVEVO Parma.

When I received the products, Mr. Mario Somma asked me to describe my first impressions and write it in one sentence, I must admit that it is very difficult to do, but I think I succeeded – “Svevo knitwear is characterized by extraordinary lightness and softness of yarn with impeccable design .”

This brand is in itself elegant and casual, I think it has a timeless art form and value.

Knitwear is a true art that is passed from generation to generation, a secret that is kept among a select few who, with their exceptional skill and intense passion, still manage to weave a new reality and spread love for finished knitted works of art among people around the world.

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

I complemented this unusual combination of sophisticated and urban casual clothing combination that captivates with sporty elegance with a watch from the new redesigned collection Gentlemen Etrier from jewelry house of Schroeder from Luxembourg.

In previous posts, you had the opportunity to see a classic model with a black crocodile bracelet – link 1 and link 2. Today I present a new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” Steel Skeleton watch with self-winding mechanical movement “SW200-1”.

Even this time I had no dilemma which watch I would put on my hand because the Schroeder Etrier Skeleton watch was made as an ideal combination of the inevitable silver color steel case with a bracelet of an unusual cognac color.

For all those who did not follow my previous fashion adventures, this watch is a novelty, so I suggest you read the Schroeder story and get acquainted with this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their unusual story.

I will share with you a small piece of the story of the Schroeder jewelry brand. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it.

The watch you had the opportunity to see in the previous and today’s post is a new model from the classic Gentlemen Etrier collection that got a redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder. The traditional classic with the best Swiss mechanism got a new modern look! You can follow Maison Schroeder on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

Fashion Diary: Something old, something new, something blue…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and you are ready for a new fashion adventure on Mr.M blog. I believe that you are tired from the last working week, but the weekend is coming and I am sure that we will all recharge our batteries for new victories to come.

As the title of the today’s post says, I will show you how I managed to combine something new, something old and something blue, so we will see how successful I was in that task!

My friends from my hometown tell me that the weather in Belgrade is wonderful, I sincerely wish I could brag about how wonderful the weather is in Berlin, but these days I have more of an opportunity to wear a raincoat than an interesting spring jacket. I don’t know if it’s just some of my subjective feelings, but I think that the weather climate have changed significantly, this spring has the typical characteristics of autumn.

Morning and evening temperatures are lower, sometimes with precipitation and the weather is quite unstable. I experienced in one day during the photo shooting that I experience heavy dry snow like you can see in Snow Globe, the sun is shining, it is raining and all that at the same time of course, is accompanied by a strong wind. I know it seems impossible and amazing, but the weather in Berlin is changeable and people don’t even know how to behave anymore and what they should wear.

When I saw the first rays of the sun, the only thing I could do was send a quick message to the photographer with the words: “I think now is the right time!”. After I got an answer from the photographer to be ready and “to make it happen” in 20 minutes, I only had enough time to brush my teeth and at the speed of light put on the things I had been preparing for days and fitting into this outfit.

The turtleneck that you have the opportunity to see on me today is certainly at least 3, maybe 4 years old, if you will believe me, I never wore it because I did not have the courage to make a perfect fit it with my other items in the closet. I think that the speed this time was crucial and that’s why I put on this turtleneck without thinking and went to take some photos.

As I write this post and look at the pictures, now I realize that the quote: “It’s never too late! Everything in life happens for a reason and at the right time! ” I think that this turtleneck, no matter how funny it seemed, waited too long for its “five minutes” and that I gathered the courage to take it.

You know why I adore Berlin? It is one of those European capitals where there are no fashion rules and official codes… You can go out to throw garbage in a ball gown or if you are not in the right mood you just can go outside in total home casual lounge wear, everything is allowed.

A couple of days ago, I read the German Vogue magazine and saw the headline – “Are you ready for the blue fashion wave?”. I am not one of those people who blindly follow fashion trends, but I got the inspiration to find some blue details from my wardrobe and include some of them in my new fashion story.

I don’t think you can guess how that fashion battle through my closet looked like, since there were things on all sides and the first thing I saw was a navy blue Burberry trench coat and this time it was the base item for me to fit the fashion details in this outfit.

Since the coat had leather details on it, I didn’t give up until I found these pants that have a leather line because I had a feeling that they would be the perfect choice.

There was a dilemma between 3 sweaters: dark navy blue, royal blue and this azure blue sweater that you have the opportunity to see on me today. Honestly, if I had time to think, I don’t think I would have chosen this sweater because it is too intense in color to be covered, so I was constantly waiting for the ideal opportunity and a better sunny day when it could be worn individually.

As for the choice of watch, I really didn’t have a dilemma because the Schroeder Joialliers watch was made as an ideal gold-black combination and because of the details on the coat, I just know that it will be the ideal choice.

For all those who did not follow my fashion adventure last week, this watch is something new to my watch collection, so I suggest you read my previous story and learn something new about this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their story.

I will share with you a small piece of the story of the Schroeder jewelry brand. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it.

The watch you had the opportunity to see in the previous and today’s post is a new model from the classic Gentlemen Etrier collection that got a redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder. The traditional classic with the best Swiss mechanism got a new modern look!

The new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” watch has Quartz “Ronda 515” movement, white dial with guilloché center and 3 Arabic numerals, and date indicator located at 6 o’clock.

You know that I never leave the house without a backpack and because of that there is always my best friend Picard who never leaves me. This backpack you see today in my post has survived adventures with me across Europe and the world, but as you can see we are still like new and fresh, always ready for some elegant occasions and city adventures.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

Turtleneck: Loro Piana

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Versace

Sneakers: Loro Piana

I owe you a story about sneakers, but believe me, it’s not that interesting because as a “double” virgo in my horoscope, because of my obsession with cleanliness, I arranged and clean up 5 pairs of navy sneakers and left them to dry. If I tell you that these are really the first sneakers that I saw in the last second and managed to get close to the trench just to see that the colors match, happy that I fit the outfit nicely, I had to go back to the apartment because I forgot the backpack… Sometimes, it happens!

Can you guess what is hidden in this wonderful package? I managed to find out only after this photo shoot because we took a picture on the way to the post office and I didn’t want to open such a wonderful gift on the street, but to keep this wonderful decorative paper in the warmth of my home, the color is beautiful! You know how much I love decorative papers and I like to collect and keep them all…

I know, it sounds hard, but it’s been my hobby since I was little! My mother could never clean up the house of decorative papers from gifts and fine stickers, when I went to college on one occasion she accidentally threw everything away because she mixed up the boxes and today I can’t regret that I was left without those wonderful decorative papers.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another new fashion trend that will be trending this spring! Do you have in your closet some interesting blue fashion piece that you plan to bring out and see the light of day? How did you like my outfit today? Share with me your opinion!

I really did my best to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

Schroeder Joailliers: Place where tradition and innovation meets…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I hope you are well, healthy and safe, so I think we are all ready for one new fashion story. Today we will talk about the family values and creativity of a traditional jewelry brand that comes to us from the heart of Western Europe – Luxembourg.

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a country located between Germany, France and Belgium, which is considered to be one of the richest countries in the world in terms of gross domestic product per capita.

Just make yourself comfortable, relax, grab your favorite sweet treat and drink and our time to enjoy this Friday and weekend time can begin!

It is an interesting fact that Luxembourg has three official languages in this country, Luxembourgish, French and German. The culture of Luxembourg is cultural mix by a centuries-old combination of German and French influences. The country has a population of just over half a million, almost half of whom are foreigners. Luxembourg is both a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, its ruler, Grand Duke Henri, is the only monarch in the world with that title.

Today, I will introduce you to a family jewelry brand that comes from Luxembourg. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it. In addition to its main jewelry store located in the heart of Luxembourg, this jewelery house also has its own jewelry and watch workshop in Paris.

I know that you are used to get know some interesting details about the history of the brand, so let’s start. The story of Schroeder jewelry began back in 1860 when Mr. Lambert Schroeder left his hometown of Luxembourg to continue his apprenticeship programs in London and the United States.

A few years later, when he returned to Luxembourg in 1877, he opened his own jewellery shop, in the same place where you can still find the Schroeder Maison. Mr. Lambert Schroeder, in addition to being a skilled merchant, appointed his creativity and passion as the basic values of the working value and policy of the jewelry Maison Schroeder. He had a great passion for making quality gold jewelry and was an ambitious innovator significantly ahead of his time.

His only son Ferdy Schroeder learned the engraving craft in Paris and took over the company with the difficult task of running it during the period during the two world wars. His great skill in his art brought him the prestigious title of the Supplier to the Court, which the jewelry house Schroeder still holds today.

During 1979, was the year when Mr. Pierre Rossi, grand-nephew of Lambert Schroeder and current director of the Schroeder Maison joined the company. Under his leadership, Schroeder jewelry has expanded internationally by deploying in different markets and participating in various exhibitions and fairs on five continents.

The family tradition continues, so that at the board of directors of the jewelry house Schroeder, in addition to Mr. Pierre Rossi and his wife, their daughters Anna and Sophie also got involved in this incredible family business. This fifth generation continues the family tradition that is associated with traditional approach, know-how and creativity.

Schroeder Joailliers has a diverse offer of sophisticated jewellery, high jewellery, watches and accessories for her and him, which will complete your style and bring freshness to your everyday life.

Today I will show you a new, redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder, who in collaboration with the most eminent Swiss manufacturers created a new look for the Etrier watch collection of the Schroeder Maison. Traditional classics with the best Swiss mechanisms got a new modern outfit!

The new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” watch has Quartz “Ronda 515” movement, white dial with guilloché center and 3 Arabic numerals, and date indicator located at 6 o’clock.

There are different models for men in the Etrier collection, the watch I wear today is with a black leather bracelet and a gold color of the case with a diameter of 40 mm. The models in the Etrier collection can be made in leather or metal bracelets, you can see more models at this link.

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

The coat, turtleneck and the jeans are the gifts from my dear friends from the Brunello Cucinelli. A coat with beautiful details made of leather and processed wood is truly a timeless piece that, due to its incredible design and quality, can be worn by several generations, if properly maintained.

The turtleneck is of a classic cut, a neutral beige color that will serve any fashion combination, there is nothing better than a pleasant touch of cashmere on cold days.

Jeans are a must have piece in my wardrobe, believe me I stopped counting them more, but it is always useful to have a few pairs of jeans as they are great for any occasion, especially if they are in some darker shades.

Who knows, maybe the road will take me to this unusual country in the next few weeks, so I will write you an interesting letter about this unusual country. How did you like my outfit today, did you manage to imagine this watch in any fashion outfits of yours?

I really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

Roja Parfums: Chypré Extraordinaire, a fragrance to remember…

My dear travelers and fashionistas, how are you today? I am sure you are doing well and you are ready to enjoy my story today. Late last year, I shared with you my experience with Roja Dove perfumes, luxurious fragrant notes that are simply impossible to forget.

If you want to remind of my reviews of Roja perfumes from my collection or want to get better acquainted with basic terms such as “Pyramid of Fragrances”, I believe this post will help you.

Today I will tell you something more about the most famous Roja perfume from the “Haute Luxe” collection that captivates all your senses – Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume.

The name Chypre comes from a French word meaning the famous island of Cyprus. The forerunner of today’s chypre perfumes is François Coty’s perfume, which in its original composition had perfect notes of oakmoss, labdanum and bergamot, and the name Coty Chypre perfume was created due to the need to indicate the fact that all ingredients were mostly from Mediterranean countries.

Roja Chypré Extraordinaire consists of the classic structure of Chypre – a typically woody and mossy scent that shows the subtle strength of character. This fragrant creation represents something completely new and extraordinary in the perfume world. Paying homage to the eponymous island of Cyprus, together with the unusual fragrant notes of cedar and sandalwood, it revives the beauty of Mother Nature. The extraordinary scent of bergamot is mixed with juicy and sweet peach, whose softness is recognized through the indulgent heart of creamy Tuberose, and in this way this fragrant story has a unique velvety and soft touch that inspires all your senses.

What are the ingredients that make Roja Chypré Extraordinaire so special?

  • Top Notes: Aldehydes, Bergamot
  • Heart Notes: Geranium, Rose de Mai, Orange Blossom, Jasmin de Grasse, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, Cistus, Heliotrope, Violet, Blackcurrant Buds, Peach, Plum
  • Base Notes: Clove, Cumin, Patchouli, Moss Base, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Amber, Orris, Styrax, Leather, Civet, Musk

Mr. Roja Dove, one of the most famous perfumers in the world and the founder of the British house of fragrance Roja Parfums at the promotion of Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume said:

“I have a great love for Chypre perfumes. I find them convincing – their magnetic attraction is simply impossible to resist. Impeccably refined and tailor-made, they require attention and respect. These perfumes are difficult to make perfect, I love harmony and all the challenges that come with working with this type of perfume. In this fragrant composition, I combined the moss with the warmth of a classic Chypre with an unexpected bouquet of sensual white flowers and a juicy fragrant note of peach. For those who share my love for Chypre fragrances, this contrasting blend of materials is completely unexpected and also the reason why this creation is truly extraordinary. ”

Roja Dove

My dear ones, we have come to the end of this special story about Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume. How did you like this fragrant story of mine today and a review of the unusual notes of Roja perfume? See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

Is it possible to look fashionable and elegant in loungewear?

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog. I hope you are well, that you take care of yourself and that you are counting down the days until the New Year with great expectations. For how many years I have been running the Mr.M blog so far, you have had the opportunity to see me in some more elegant editions or everyday combinations that included jeans.

I have to be honest and say that you can count the fingers of one hand how many times you saw me in a loungewear (tracksuit). Otherwise, in my free time and during the trip, I often wear tracksuits because they are the most practical and the person feels most comfortable during the trip.

Tracksuits have always found their way to our closets, they have their own fashion cult. There are people who wear tracksuits exclusively, and even to work, if they are lucky enough to have reasonable employers. Tracksuits for me represent a special type of fashion where the basic idea is to make a person feel comfortable, over time tracksuits have become elegant, so now some models can be worn on more formal occasions.

Honestly, it used to be hard for me to imagine, but when I saw some models of tracksuits, I completely changed my mind and realized that the concept of sportswear has changed over time.

In an interview, a fashion icon who is unfortunately no longer with us – Karl Lagerfeld stated that the joggers of the tracksuit is a sign that someone has given up on himself as a man and has surrendered without thinking about dignity.

In a way, the set of tracksuits has always been in fashion, many famous public figures and my fellow world influencers and bloggers wore the set of tracksuits in their relaxed releases and thus “forced” a counter to a famous designer who proved during his life that there is nothing. other than elegance.

I think that everyone has the right to dress as they want, it’s just that each of us has those days when we want to leave the house and walk without thinking about what to wear or whether we dressed “according to someone’s taste”. Even today, some people think that people who wear tracksuits only go to throw garbage and walk their pets, or they have decided to do some sports activities.

Today, loungewear is worn with elegant jackets and coats, if you use elegant fashion accessories, the tracksuit can completely change its original look and you get a completely different fashion combination with some special sporty elegant vibe.

My tracksuit today stands out from the classic rustling materials from which those casual fashion pieces are normally made. My friends from the Johnstons of Elgin brand proved to me that an everyday tracksuit can be made from the highest quality cashmere.

The inevitable combination of navy blue and gray color slightly emphasizes the special elegance of this set of tracksuits, whose upper or lower part you can buy separately if you have some special sympathies for one of the pieces or just do not want to be uniformed.

All of Jonhnstons of Elgin cashmere loungewear range is expertly crafted from the finest fibres to provide a soft touch matched with durability so you can enjoy an elegant look with lasting comfort.

From the living room to luxury travel, Johnstons of Elgin loungewear is straightforward and sophisticated, with minimalist detailing and refined styling. The using of Australian Merino Wool in their new lifestyle capsule collection provides an accessible price point while neutral colour shades add an organic feel.

Of course, I also completed this outfit with Loro Piana sneakers that you haven’t had a chance to see on my blog so far. The first thing you can notice is that the colors of two different manufacturers fit perfectly and that this outfit is a real urban sporty elegance vibe.

Of course, this time too I took the opportunity to walk my best friend Torino through the streets of Berlin without which I can’t otherwise imagine my day.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the famous new fashion icon – tracksuit. How did you like this outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it!

Roja Parfums – A treasure of luxury fragrance notes to remember

My dear readers, welcome to another story on the Mr.M blog. Today’s story will be a little different from all the previous posts you’ve had a chance to read on my blog. I will do my best to bring you closer to an interesting kingdom of fragrant notes that remain etched in your memory…

Each of us experiences certain scents in our own way, some of them are extremely important and dear to us and we always remember them fondly. Have you perhaps heard of the term “Fragrance Pyramid”?

Each perfume has three fragrant levels of notes: top, heart and (bottom) base notes. You can feel the top fragrant note immediately after applying the perfume. At the beginning, it is very intense, but it soon disappears, and then other fragrant notes come to the fore, which take the place of the upper fragrant note. The life cycle of scents of higher quality perfumes lasts for hours, until we reach the base fragrant notes that remain on our skin for hours.

Today I present to you a part of the collection of Roja Parfums perfumes made by the eminent British perfumer Mr. Roja Dove, who is one of the world’s most respected perfume experts.

His many years of experience, passion, creativity and effort have been transformed into the perfect luxury bottles that adorn each of his creations. The Roja Parfums brand is known as the most luxurious fragrance house in the world. It is a known fact that this British brand works only with the highest quality and most expensive ingredients, which were personally chosen by Mr. Dove because of their value and unique fragrance.

From the legendary May rose, refreshing lemon and jasmine from Grasse to natural bergamot, through handmade boxes lined with real silk, perfume lids encrusted with 24-carat gold and decorated with Swarovski crystals – everything is made to meet the needs of even people with sophisticated and refined taste.

In the Roja Parfums collection you can find the best perfumes for women and men, perfumes that contain the famous Oudh (Oud perfumes), as well as unisex perfumes that can be used by both sexes due to their unique fragrant notes.

Roja Parfum De La Nuit No 2

The first perfume I had the opportunity to try from the rich Roja Parfums collection was Roja Parfum De La Nuit No 2, which belongs to the eponymous Roja perfume collection De La Nuit. There are 3 fragrant notes in this line and I opted for number two because of one specificity.

The De La Nuit perfume collection explores the way our hidden urges rarely surface during the day, but can still emerge from the shadows as the sun slowly sets. This extremely sensual set of fragrances allows us to explore the inner desires that are hidden in all of us, bringing some new seductive notes into our lives. Perfume De La Nuit No. 2 is “Seducer”, at first you may not notice the fragrant notes of bergamot, orange and lemon, but without being fully aware that you have succumbed to the power of the smell of rum and enchanting coconut.

Roja Parfum De La Nuit 2 Ingredients
  • Top Notes: Lemon, Bergamot, Orange
  • Heart Notes: Cistus
  • Base Notes: Cypriol, Patchouli, Rum, Vetiver, Guaiacwood, Tolu Balsam, Benzoin, Vanilla, Cocoa, Tonka Bean, Labdanum

The next fragrance from the Roja Parfums collection that enchanted my senses was Britannia. Britannia is a fragrance from the Roja Dove Imperial perfume line.

A fragrance that defines all the features of British creativity, Britannia is composed of ingredients from four continents. As an island nation, the British have always been researchers and have found new and exotic ingredients that have been incorporated into British traditional research creativity.

Roja Parfum Britannia

By mixing ingredients from distant exotic empires with indigenous ingredients, Britannia perfume elevates a true British sense of pride with its noble heritage, while at the same time embracing external influences. Definition of British manners, this unusual fragrance represents the embodiment of luxury in a completely different British way.

Roja Parfum Britannia Ingredients
  • Top Notes: Cedrat, Bergamot, Mandarin, Tangerine
  • Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Jasmin de Grasse, Champaca, Heliotrope, Cassie, Violet, Peach
  • Base Notes: Cinnamon, Clove, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cocoa, Orris, Ambergris, Musk
Roja Parfum Nüwa

The perfume I really wanted to have in my collection is Roja Nüwa Perfume. Like the previous Britannia perfume, it belongs to the Imperial perfume line of the fragrant house Roja Parfums.

This perfume is an oriental fragrance, rich, refreshing and soft, ideal for autumn when you need the discreet freshness provided by the flowers of the May rose and grapefruit.

Roja Nüwa perfume is inspired by the legend of NüWa, a gentle and lovely Chinese goddess who is said to have created humanity. According to one of the many myths, she taught her people to be creative and wise, introduced beauty through music, song and dance, and filled the world with flowers and incredible scents. This perfume represents the gentle harmony of May rose, jasmine and orange blossom, creating an idyllic floral song that is adorned with fragrant notes of sandalwood and vanilla.

Roja Parfum NüWa Ingredients
  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit
  • Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Orange Blossom, Jasmin de Grasse
  • Base Notes: Clove, Cumin, Pepper, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Peru Balsam
Roja Parfum Oceania

For the end, I deliberately left a perfume that really contains a refreshing scent of the ocean that instantly pierces all your senses, but there is one wonderful thing that I appreciate about Roja Parfums brand.

Mr. Dove is a big fan of the ocean and therefore a donation from every sale of Oceania perfume will be donated to charity organizations dedicated to the protection of precious waters. This fragrance opens with a wave of invigorating freshness of bergamot, lemon and mandarin. The scent of jasmine brings you a whiff of wind from a nearby island, while Sandalwood and Orris offer warm refreshing scents and the warmth of the sun, whose light is reflected on the waves of our oceans in your heart!

Fashion Diary: November, the month of fashion and new ideas…

My dear fashionistas welcome to another fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I sincerely hope you are well, healthy and safe surrounded by loved ones. This year has certainly marked our lives and we will surely remember it after the pandemic and the world crisis. I don’t think there is an industry that hasn’t felt some kind of crisis, so it is in the fashion industry, which is a big challenge for fashion brands and designers as well.

During the pandemic, the fashion industry makes great efforts to maintain a perfect balance of production and concentration of purchasing power. The current volume of production may have been reduced, but believe me, the love for fashion has remained absolutely has not changed at all.

How will I remember Autumn – Winter 2020? Honestly, I am happiest that, thank God, I am healthy and that I had the opportunity to share my love for fashion with my readers. I regularly receive emails and messages on social networks from my dear readers with similar question, and that is: “When will your new travelogues start?”.

I really can’t honestly give you the answer to that question because I really don’t know how the health situation will unfold and how it will affect travel in the future. Believe me, that famous thought passes through my mind at least once every day: “When will everything return to the old like before as used to be?”. It is no longer a problem with borders and the fact that there is no travel, but this “world quarantine” and constant changes in the law have begun to affect people’s mental health.

When I wonder why I am not able to go somewhere, I sincerely thank God after a few seconds that I am healthy and that I have the opportunity to rest and relax with my family in one place. Travel is a wonderful thing and for me it will always be a kind of non-formal education, but health and family will always be in the first place for me and it is something that has no price.

In today’s post, we’re hanging out again with my favorite fashion piece this season, I believe you’ve all remembered his name so far – Morris. To be honest, I don’t know which fashion piece I liked and repeated on the blog during one season, but with this jacket it’s different.

If you remember that special story of mine from the first fashion post about the Italian brand from Verona, the MooRER brand will remember how I wrote that this jacket fulfilled my unfulfilled dreams from Prague from a couple of years ago. Maybe that’s exactly why I’ve worn this jacket so many times, but I promise I’ll change soon! Thank you for your understanding! 🙂

MooRER is an Italian brand that won my heart in a short time and I am glad that we managed to find each other during this pandemic and make a wonderful and interesting collaboration.

Another Italian brand that you had the opportunity to meet last week on my blog, which is known for handmade real small leather art masterpieces, is the Restelli Guanti gloves factory.

This week, I present you another model of gloves from this interesting family brand that has passed on its love for gloves and share for generations. I extremely appreciate and respect brands with this tradition that have survived on the market for years, and I am always glad when I manage to help them at least a little, especially in these difficult times.

In the fashion world, every piece has its own unique story, which really provides a special charm. These gloves are made of a perfect combination of cashmere and soft deerskin. Ideal for any fashion combination, whether you are getting ready for work or a business meeting or you may have decided to spend a day in a relaxed walk, these gloves are ideal for the cold days that follow us during autumn and winter.

You haven’t been able to see the roll neck sweater and jeans on the blog so far because I jealously kept it for colder days and finally put on my new refined pieces of wool and cashmere with which these lower temperatures passed me more easily than in previous years.

The roll neck sweater you can see in today’s post came to my wardrobe from faraway Scotland made by the skilled hands of a team from the Johnstons of Elgin brand who made it true for me to spend this winter in trend and to spend my days in Berlin comfortably, even with an open jacket.

Believe me, since I always have problems with regulating my body temperature, I have been buttoned up to my throat in the winter for years, and I always have a feeling of cold, while other people can only wear a sweater, I will always have a jacket over. This year I have to admit I gave up a bit so I walked around with an open jacket, which may be a small step for humanity, but too big not to say a giant step for one Marko!

OUTFIT

The outfit is made up of products from the new Johnstons of Elgin and MooRER collection for autumn-winter 2020/21. In the list below you can find links for each product from today’s post.

News for all of you, since I regularly get questions, do I have a discount code, I asked Johnstons of Elgin and they came out with my own personal code “MT10” you have a special 10% discount on the entire offer of Johnstons of Elgin products. You get a discount, I don’t have any kind of commission, I tried to do that for all my readers to get a discount on the entire collection of this Scottish brand and to enjoy the beauty of wool and cashmere this season.

Jacket: MooRER

Roll Neck Sweater: Johnstons of Elgin

Gloves: Restelli

Trousers: Loro Piana

Sneakers: MooRER

MooRER and Johnstons of Elgin are brands that try to make each piece with great care and you can really feel it when you worn their products. Their models are extremely comfortable, practical and wearable for any occasion, whether it is the clothes you need for every day and work, up to those slightly more formal occasions.

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

Fashion Diaries: The Secret lies in finding the right accessories…

Dear my fashionistas, good morning and welcome to my blog. Difficult times have come and instead of counting down to the holidays that are getting closer to us, we live in fear that we will be healthy the next day. At the very beginning of the post I would draw your attention to be careful and to look out for others. I think that each of us has a conscience, and if you feel bad, stay at home and let’s hope that this health catastrophe will pass soon and that we will all see the light at the end of the tunnel together.

Today, this cold November Tuesday, I am sharing with you another fashion story from the streets of Berlin. November is sometimes really the last month of the year when we can take advantage of the weather and walk some of our favorite fashion pieces that occupy a special place in our closets. In my case, it would certainly be – a Trench Coat!

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see a navy blue trench coat, but today I will show you a honey-colored trench coat, which is one of the most famous and best-selling colours of the fashion house Burberry.

I remember when I got my first Burberry coat which I still keep today, but if someone had told me I would get a similar coat few years later, I really couldn’t believe it.

In addition to this favorite piece of mine that has refreshed my fall wardrobe for this and next seasons to come, I am also looking forward to some new unexpected details that have enriched my outfit today.

The watch is known as the best fashion accessory for every man. There is a quote: “Show me what kind of watch you wear and I’ll tell you who you are.” Every man determines his style, and fashion accessories are the ones that determine the direction in which that style will develop.

A wristwatch is much more than just a time indicator. A watch is a piece of art that adorns the hand of every man and woman and depicts the personality of the person wearing it. When buying a watch, the most important thing is to forget about trends and find yourself and stay consistent with yourself and your style.

Today I decided to show you a new watch in my collection – Epos Originale 3420 SK – an elegant automatic skeleton watch in an extremely thin edition.

The Epos company was founded in 1925 when Mr. James Aubert founded his own watch factory “James Aubert SA” in Vallée de Joux, a valley in the Jura Mountains that many consider to be the “cradle” of mechanical watches and is located in the Swiss canton of Vaud (Waadt).

Mr. Aubert was a passionate mechanical watch engineer, who dedicated his life to the development of new watch mechanisms. He was a top master of his craft and spent most of his efforts focusing on the technical development of chronographs and minute tutors.

He passed on his true love for watches and his knowledge to his son-in-law, Jean Filion, who then became the leading manufacturer of EPOS watches for many years. Mr. Filion has continued the tradition and made great strides in the innovations that have made this brand so unique in the market.

In the early 1980s, the success story of the traditional Swiss watch stagnated. New quartz technology has radically changed the true face of the watch industry. There were almost no brands that wanted to produce classic mechanical watches, with the exception of a few luxury watch brands.

Peter Hofer, a longtime expert in Swiss watch production, was one of the few who still believed in the future of mechanical watches. Believing in this vision, his wife Erna, as the biggest support, decided to found their own company in 1983: Montres EPOS SA.

Their only property was exclusively a passion for mechanical watches and all the necessary technical knowledge to create mechanical masterpieces.

Personal contacts with key people in the Swiss watch industry, as well as extensive knowledge of the global watch market, have enabled Peter Hofer to successfully develop his own brand. From the very beginning, Hofer was supported by Jean Fillon, who was the driving force behind many interesting EPOS innovations.

During 20 years of his work, Hofer has remained true to his vision, developing stunning collections that include fascinating mechanisms in collaboration with Mr. Fillon.

In the early 2000s, Peter Hofer sought successors who shared his indescribable passion for mechanical watches.

New business partners in EPOS are the Chonge-Forster family, a family with deep roots in the Swiss watch industry: Ursula Forster, who became the new president of the company, comes from a family with a long and rich tradition in the production of Swiss watches. Her husband, Tamdy, who has taken over as CEO, has been working in the top positions in the Swiss watch industry for many years.

Together, they took over the company from Mr. Peter Hofer in 2002 and have since developed the EPOS brand, expanding their product portfolio and expanding internationally. Building on the long legacy and knowledge selflessly invested in the company, they have always focused on creating highly sophisticated mechanical masterpieces at affordable prices, remaining true to the company’s slogan: Art in the watchmaking world.

After this interesting story about time and tradition in Switzerland, where time is highly valued, we move briefly to the most famous cradle of fashion – Italy.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide his joy when he smells the new Italian skin. Today I present to you the most famous workshop that creates real small leather masterpieces. Welcome to the Restelli workshop where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet.

Now let’s all imagine this picture together: “Milan, 1920 and a glove shop near the Duomo”. At the same time, they made personalized gloves in according to the wishes and tastes of each customer.

At that time, gloves were a symbol of elegance and sophistication, an irreplaceable fashion accessory for all occasions. Piero Restelli soon realized that his passion, handwork with the best and most precious types of leather and deep respect for craft production were just the beginning of a long successful journey that would reshape the glove industry.

The factory was founded with its own leather reserves, which played a very important role in the leather processing process, over time production began to increase. The success of this small family company goes further and takes us to the early 50s when Piero Restelli Jr. and his wife, young and determined, presented their special collection of sportswear…

Soon, on the streets of Milan and throughout Italy, waterproof gloves made of the highest quality peccary leather covered with warm opossum fur became a symbol of the Italian “Jet Set” of high society and Restelli became a world-famous brand.

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 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.

I believe that today we have all recognized something beautiful in these stories, and that is respect for and preservation of tradition, following innovations in step with the times and dedication that has no price.

Work, effort and discipline are the three basic things that are needed to maintain in any business. Of course, there are also those moments when happiness, belief in one’s work and dedication play an important role.

The COVID-19 health situation brought difficulties to everyone, the world stopped and just started to develop and return to normal, but the new wave that started in Europe during October 2020 resulted in another wave that affects the development and survival of many industries.

In Germany, the economy began to recover, but with this renewed “quarantine” many people lost their jobs. Some world experts believe that the damage caused by the Corona virus will be significantly greater because many people have lost their jobs and many companies have closed their doors. Do you know how many families were left without income?

Picard, a brand that you have had the opportunity to see on my blog for years, are the famous leather backpacks that kept me company on my travels around the world. My new Picard buddy, we can call him Relaxed We decided to keep each other company on the streets of Berlin while we wait for this health situation to calm down and wait for better days to continue our traveling adventures.

Picard Relaxed is great for every day because it is big enough that I can take everything I need to do my daily duties around the city. The big advantage is the new special lining material that prevents the spread of radiation so you can carry various types of electronic devices without fear that some of the devices will affect your credit card or mobile phone.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

The Roll Neck Sweater: Loro Piana

Watch: Epos

Gloves: Restelli

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Brunello Cucinelli

Sneakers: MooRER

Of course, I also completed this outfit with the perfect brown MooRER sneakers that you had the opportunity to see in previous posts of this fashion season. I can’t wait to show you other models of MooRER sneakers so you don’t criticize me for having only one pair to wear this season.

My problem sometimes is that I get attached to some things and I am ready to wear them a couple of times in a row. This is exactly what happened with the things of the fashion house MooRER, and from a lot of things which I got, I became attached to brown pieces for now, trying to move to another world of colors.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this as just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I respected all the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the dedication, tradition, love and patience. How did you like this honey – golden – brown outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new fashion story from Germany!

British elegance and Italian style on the streets of Berlin

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? I sincerely hope that you are well and that you are protected from this health catastrophe that started a new winter “wave”. All over Europe, the situation is alarming and we need to take care of ourselves and our loved ones.

Each of us must continue to work, but we must do our best to adjust our work and daily life in accordance with the current health situation. Since I have to do my job, I try to take pictures at a time when there are not many people on the streets and to avoid indoors for taking photos.

I appeal once again that it is necessary to take new precautionary measures and try to stay healthy and make our environment a better place. In previous posts, you had the opportunity to see me in a winter jacket, many of you sent me numerous messages asking where is my famous Mr.M symbol, a fashion piece without which autumn cannot pass on Mr.M’s blog – the trench coat.

I will dedicate the first November fashion story to my favorite fashion piece by which I became recognizable. The trenchcoat is a piece of clothing that has become a legendary fashion piece of the wardrobe of women and men around the world. The famous Burberry double-breasted coats are made of gabardine. Gabardine is a fine fabric made of combed wool or cotton. Woolen fabric is used for coats, suits and women’s dresses, while cotton is used to make light dresses and cotton is lined with rubber which is used to make raincoats.

Burberry trench coats have an insulated lining, classic or raglan sleeves. Classic versions of the Burberry trench coat can be found in different lengths, from just above the joints (the longest version) to above the middle of the thigh (the shortest). These coats were originally a garment for army officers, the coat model itself was developed before the war, but during the war it was adapted for use in the trenches of the First World War, after which they got their name – Trench Coat!

Traditionally, double-breasted trench coats are buttoned with 10 front buttons and have wide lapels, a “storm” flap and pockets that close with the buttons. Each double-breasted trench coat has a belt around the waist, as well as belts around the joints that can also be fastened. Have you ever wondered why coats have straps on the sleeves above the wrist?

During the war, these belts were practical to keep water from flowing through the forearm when officers used binoculars during the rain. The trench coat often has “shoulder straps” that close and these were functional characteristics in a military context. The traditional color of the coat was “khaki”, a light shade of yellow-brown. Today, newer versions come in many interesting colors.

Trenches remained in trend for decades after the First and Second World Wars. Their original role as a striking part of a military officer’s uniform provided the coat with a new, more elegant business note, although many prefer to tie a belt instead of using a buckle to project a more casual look than a strict military uniform.

In the 1960s, intellectuals wore trench coats over black roll neck sweaters, while some people wore coats as fashion details, as an elegant alternative to jackets.

Double-breasted trenches and coats have become an integral part of our everyday life and there really is no person in the world who does not have a double-breasted trench or coat in the wardrobe, regardless of the brand, a double breasted coat is a iconic fashion piece that never goes out of fashion.

My love for coats is due to my grandfather and father, who were great collectors of trenches and coats as well. My grandfather and father saved a part of their fashion paradise for me as well, and my father gave me my first Burberry trench coat almost 13 years ago, which I still jealously guard and wear today.

These are some of our family rituals, so we passed on our “male” love for coats to our dear ladies in the family. My mother as one of them was not a fan of this piece in the beginning, but with our influence, these fashion treats were also found in her wardrobe.

I have noticed that many people confuse the terms “trench coat” and “coat”. The trench coat is “thinner” and it is worn in the transitional seasons – spring and autumn, when we need protection from unexpected rain and windy weather, and we do not want to wear some heavy and warmer pieces.

A coat is a slightly more “serious” fashion piece for winter time, made of a thicker material, most often wool, cashmere or a combination of these two materials. There are other more exotic materials, but they are less often used due to the high costs of making and processing these materials, the best example is Vicuna shiny llama hair, which is exceptional and rare, but very expensive. A sweater made of Vicuna costs several thousand euros…

When we talk about wool, their fibers consist of several layers. Wool retains heat well and is often used to make sweaters and comfortable winter clothes such as coats, jackets, scarves and gloves. What all belongs to the wool fiber family? These are cashmere, angora, merino wool, lamb wool and mohair.

In today’s post, I wanted to show you an everyday, casual and relaxed fashion combination where one elegant piece, such as a trench coat, can be combined with jeans and sneakers. Also, this time I took the opportunity to show you a red roll neck sweater from my friends from Scotland, Johnstons of Elgin, which you saw in a more elegant edition in one of the previous posts.

Navy – red combination is always refreshing and proved to be the best fashion tandem where we have navy blue, which is a symbol of elegance, while red rejuvenates and refreshes a person. Red indicates a new beginning and brings a certain dose of joy.

MooRER and Johnstons of Elgin are brands that try to make each piece with great care and you can really feel it when you worn their products. Their models are extremely comfortable, practical and wearable for any occasion, whether it is the clothes you need for every day and work, up to those slightly more formal occasions.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this as just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I respected all the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the iconic fashion piece called – The Trench Coat. How did you like this navy blue – red outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new fashion story from Germany!

From Berlin with Love,
