ZEGNA: The Beauty of the Refined Elegance of Linen…

My dear fashioniastas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. I hope you are well and ready for a new dose of fashion. We start today’s fashion adventure with new friends of Mr.M blog – ZEGNA. Ermenegildo Zegna, also known as Zegna or Ermenegildo Zegna Group is an Italian luxury fashion house. It was founded in 1910 in Triver, Biella, in the Piedmont region of northern Italy.

How did this exceptional Italian brand come about? Before founding the company, founder Ermenegildo Zegna’s father, Mr. Angelo, a former watchmaker, owned a woolen mill and looms in the Piedmont Alps, Italy. Ermenegildo, together with his brothers Edoardo and Mario, founded the company in 1910 in Triver in the Biellese Alps when he was only 18 years old, using his father’s looms and family property. A few years later, in 1915 to be precise, the company was renamed Fratelli Zegna di Angelo.

Zegna’s vision was to create high-quality fabrics, so he began to source wool directly from several countries around the world, such as Mongolia, Australia, South Africa, in addition to buying modern machines from England that enabled quality fabric production. During the interwar period, Zegna’s business began to flourish. In the late 1920s, the Lanificio (wool mill) employed more than 700 workers, which number grew to more than 1,000 in the late 1930s.

Not long after, in 1938, the company began exporting fabrics to the USA, through its subsidiary Zegna Woollens Corporation established in New York. Soon, in 1942, Ermenegildo’s sons Aldo and Angelo joined the family business of the company, which was renamed Ermenegildo Zegna and Sons. In the mid-1950s, the company employed over 1,400 workers.

Ermenegildo Zegna’s sons, Aldo and Angelo, took over the company in the mid-1960s. Under their leadership, the brand expanded its business into ready-to-wear and established new factories and distribution networks abroad. In 1968, the first factory for the production of sleeves and trousers was opened in Novara, followed by Spain, Greece and Switzerland. Sales and marketing departments have also been established in France, Germany, Great Britain and the USA. In the 1970s, Zegna launched its tailor-made service called Su Misura.

Zegna’s attention to wool quality continued in the 1960s and 1970s, as the company established the Wool Awards in Australia (1963) and the Mohair Trophy in South Africa (1970). The international development strategy led by the Zegna brothers led to the opening of the first owned boutique in Paris in 1980 and then in Milan in 1985. In the 1990s, more precisely in 1991, Zegna became the first luxury brand to open a boutique in China.

In the 1990s, the third generation of the Zegna family entered the business. Angelo’s son and namesake of the company’s founder, Ermenegildo “Gildo” Zegna, became CEO of Zegna Group in 1997, while his cousin Paolo was appointed president of Zegna Group. Under their leadership, the company embarked on a strategy of brand expansion and full verticalization. The first major recorded success was in 1991, when Zegna was the first luxury brand to enter the Chinese market, with a flagship store in Beijing and one of the first to enter the Indian market.

The ZEGNA brand has always been a favorite in the celebrity world. Numerous actors and models have advertised Zegna’s lines over the years. Celebrities featured in Zegna’s advertising campaigns are Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody, American model Ryan Burns, Irish actor Jamie Dornan, English actor Sam Reilly. In 2017, Ermenegildo Zegna launched a four-chapter campaign called Defining Moments. Robert De Niro, McCaul Lombardi, Benjamin Millepied, Park Chan-wook, Yoo Ji-tae, Wang Deshun, Sunny Wang, Javier Bardem, Dev Patel participated in the campaign. Two years later, in 2019, Zegna launched a new campaign, “What does it mean to be a man today?”, featuring Mahershala Ali and Nicholas Tse, focused on the definition of modern masculinity.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see two interesting pieces from the latest ZEGNA SS24 collection: a linen shirt and jeans. The shirt is made of the highest quality linen in a gentle drape shade with stripes of different colors, while the jeans are in my favorite ivory (beige) color, which is simply the best color for the summer season because of its simple combination with all other colors from various palettes.

Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply iconic, shoes for all times! You had the opportunity to meet their most famous model Brera for the first time in my Jordan fashion stories. What is the story of this brand? In the middle of the 20th century, more precisely in 1945, Mr. Renzo Rossetti started his story from scratch, where he worked alone to cut leather for several types of sports shoes. His shoes were sold at the famous Brigatti store in Milan, one of the few remaining stores of its kind in the city. After a few years, Fratelli Rossetti saw success, but, wanting to develop further, they transferred the brands and equipment for this special production to Atala Sport in Padua.

So they decided to start their story again from the beginning and decided to switch to the production of classic shoes. Those were the years between 1952 and 1957, which witnessed the orientation and acquisition of new skills in the creation of women’s ballet flats and elegant, simple men’s footwear characterized by extremely flexible and high-quality workmanship. All this led to the creation of a small collection of men’s shoes with contours that differed from the various styles sold at the time. Renzo Rossetti consequently engaged in work that demonstrated his aesthetic sense and artistic perfectionism.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic lines that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht, La Giusta, Estate and Green Side.

In today’s post, I present one of the iconic Brera models. Brera is the bohemian quarter of Milan where, in the sixties of the last century, sculptors, painters and writers struggled to leave their mark with a new language and new forms. The liberal and cosmopolitan spirit was the source of inspiration for “Brera”, a moccasin with tassels, a style revolution in a country that is just rediscovering its joy of life. Brera combines different materials and colors as a true work of art. The special composition of materials and shapes makes moccasins a successful chapter in the history of Fratelli Rossetti.

Today you have the opportunity to see the famous Brera moccasins in brown color made of soft open-weave leather with evenly spaced holes in the upper part. Special high-quality processing and production. These moccasins have a hand-dyed leather sole. The shoes are handmade in Italy, like all other Fratelli Rossetti shoes.

If you want to stay freshly updated and find out which models of shoes and leather goods the Fratelli Rossetti brand has in its offer, visit their official online store and follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

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 jewelry house also has its jewelry and watch workshop in Paris.

The story of Schroeder jewelry began back in 1860 when Mr. Lambert Schroeder left his hometown of Luxembourg to continue his training in London and the United States. A few years later when he returned to Luxembourg in 1877, he opened his goldsmith’s shop, in the same place where you can still find the Schroeder jewelry house today. Mr. Lambert Schroeder, in addition to being a skilled trader, translated his creativity and passion into the core values of the work policy of the Schroeder jewelry company. He had a great passion for making quality gold jewelry and was an ambitious innovator significantly ahead of his time.

His only son, Ferdi Schroeder, learned the engraver’s trade in Paris and took over the company with the difficult task of running it during the two world wars. His great skill in his art earned him the prestigious title of chief supplier to the court, which the Schroeder jewelry house still holds today. During 1979, the company was joined by Pierre Rossi, Lambert Schroeder’s grandson and current director of Schroeder Jewelry. Under his leadership, Schroeder jewelry expanded internationally by deploying to various markets and participating in various exhibitions and fairs on five continents.

The family tradition continues, so that at the head of the Schroeder jewelry company, in addition to Mr. Pierre Rossi and his wife, their daughters Anni and Sophie were also involved in making business decisions. This fifth generation continues the family tradition that is associated with traditional approach, knowledge and creativity.

Loro Piana is an Italian company specialised in clothing and textile products. This fashion house is considered the largest producer of cashmere and also the world’s largest artisanal company processing the luxury fiber.

The Loro Piana company has three divisions (textile divisions): a division that deals with the production of high-quality materials using precious fibers such as cashmere and baby cashmere, vicuna, linen and merino wool, a division that deals with the creation of luxury fashion items (production and distribution of men’s, women’s clothing, footwear and fashion accessories) and the interior design department – production and distribution of interior design products.

Originally from Trivero, the Loro Piana family started their family business in the wool trade at the beginning of the 19th century. In the second half of this century, the family moved its activities to Valsesia and founded the Fratelli Lora e Compagnia woolen mill, and then the Zignone & C. woolen mill in Quarona at the beginning of the 20th century. Engineer and founder of the Loro Piana brand, Mr. Pietro Loro Piana founded the company Loro Piana & C. in Quarona in 1924. Soon this company will celebrate its jubilee 100th anniversary of its existence and it will be an extraordinary celebration of the “first fashion century” of this extraordinary fashion house, which I am immensely looking forward to!

Mr. Franco Loro Piana (grandson of Mr. Pietro Loro Piana), after taking over the leadership of the company in the 1960s, started exporting high quality fabrics to Europe, America and Japan. He significantly expanded the markets in which Loro Piana began its new business ventures.

Renzo Rossetti consequently engaged in work that demonstrated his aesthetic sense and artistic perfectionism.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary company story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives. The Fratelli Rossetti company is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: as early as the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

Fratelli Rossetti: One Colorful Fashion Postcard from Havana!

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure from Cuba. The Caribbean is an inspiration for fashion stories because of its unique colorful and exotic character that adorns this tropical part of the world. The pictures for today’s fashion story were created in the capital of this island country Cuba and I tried to convey the energy of this distant exotic country with bright colors.

The star of our today’s fashion story is the shoes that have become dear to you over time and this brand has become recognizable among the readers of the Mr.M blog. I believe that by now you have thoroughly familiarized yourself with the offer of the well-known Italian brand of footwear and leather goods Fratelli Rossetti, and today I present to you the “crown” of their latest collection, the Brera model, which is made with special embroidery.

Let’s determine what we’ve learned about Fratelli Rossetti 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 of Fratelli Rossetti’s history.

During the process of creating the Brera collection, the Fratelli Rossetti brand’s design team decided to go one step further and bring the Brera moccasin model to perfection and complete it with unusual colorful hand embroidery. The main material of the outer part of the shoe is soft plush 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. The shoes I’m wearing have a dark blue base – a navy color with colorful embroidery that can be easily combined with different bright colors.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic iconic models that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht and La Giusta.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Fratelli Rossetti, the Spirit of Italian Elegance in the Capital of Qatar…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. I want to thank you for your wonderful words and numerous compliments on my work. I’m really glad you like my take on fashion and that I’ve inspired many women in their golden ages (50+) to change their minds and bring color into their lives. My story today will be dedicated to loafers because it is a fashion detail that is timeless, but sometimes the target of criticism due to the iconic design of the shoes. Some of my friends think that a woman puts on moccasins the moment she gives up her femininity, luckily that’s not true and I’ll do my best to break this crazy fashion illusion for you today.

Loafers (Moccasins) are a great shoe model for both genders and you can emphasize your femininity. These shoes are not necessarily designed for men, it is true that men may have worn this model of shoe more often throughout history, but luckily times have changed. People think that women who wear suits have somehow given up their femininity? It’s also one of those fashion assumptions that gives me a slight chill, but I’m comforted by the fact that women have become braver and more aware of their choices. Young girls today are not afraid to boldly show their choices whereas in my time when I was a girl it was strictly an unwritten rule that a real girl or woman had to wear a dress or a skirt at all since trousers were a piece of clothing that was exclusively reserved for showing off masculinity in men.

It was the same for shoes, women’s High-heeled shoes or ballet flats were worn, until loafers were a symbol of masculinity that might be forgiven for older women better known by the derogatory name “old biddy”, since it was considered that they were no longer women, but had long since lost their femininity… Fortunately, social norms changed over time, so “old biddies” got their chance to rejuvenate.

Yes, I am a woman and I proudly wear trousers and loafers in the 21st century and I am proud of those facts and I try to inspire other women of their golden ages to live their lives the way they want to. When you turn fifty, society considers that you have fulfilled your role as a mother and that it is time to realize yourself in the role of a grandmother, so you can peacefully go to the heaven and leave your descendants to enjoy… All this is beautiful, everyone should have their own life and it is natural that life goes on in its natural course, but it is necessary to change the rhythm of life with some new “exciting song”. This is something I like to point out to women because life doesn’t stop after 50s or 60s, my dear ladies life goes on and so should you!

Today I decided to show you an unusual and colorful fashion detail – Brera loafers from the special limited Spring – Summer collection of Fratelli Rossetti that can change your view of the world. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes iconic shoes that are elegant and simply unbeatable, shoes for all generations!

What is the story of this brand? In the middle of the 20th century, more precisely in 1945, Mr. Renzo Rossetti started his story from scratch, where he worked alone to cut leather for several types of sports shoes. His shoes were sold at the famous Brigatti store in Milan, one of the few remaining stores of its kind in the city. After a few years, Fratelli Rossetti saw success, but, wanting to develop further, they transferred the brands and equipment for this special production to Atala Sport in Padua.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary business story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives. The company Fratelli Rossetti is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: back in the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for women and men has timeless classic iconic models that you can find all year in their offer, some of the women’s models are: Brera, Magenta, Estate and Hobo Sport.

In today’s post I present you one of the iconic Brera models from limited Spring – Summer collection. How did this model get 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.

This model of Brera summer moccasins that you can see on me in today’s fashion story is made of leather and satin with leather details and a special embroidery that is found throughout the shoe. This model is the result of special high-quality Italian craftsmanship. These shoes have a leather sole.

A handbag is a special fashion detail that adorns every woman, that’s why I decided to combine this beautiful red Fratelli Rossetti red handbag from the Magenta line with my outfits this summer, which is made of soft smooth leather. The bag has a magnetic closure featuring the iconic Fratelli Rossetti gold-colored metal buckles. You can also carry this bag over your shoulder, that way the bag will get a look of sporty elegance. The main compartment of the bag is equipped with a small inner pocket with a zipper and a small pocket on the outer back.

Top: Aida Barni

Trousers: Loro Piana

Bag: Fratelli Rossetti

Loafers: Fratelli Rossetti

Earrings: Cameo Italiano

Sunglasses: FOR ART’S SAKE

Today I’m showing you a timeless brand of exquisite knitwear that has become a favorite of Mr.M blog readers over the past few seasons because of my son’s clothing pieces. Since I had the opportunity to see for myself the quality and design of the sweater that Aida Barni provided to my son, their proposal for cooperation surprised me, but also made me happy because they recognized my vision. Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Also, sometimes you need to make yourself happy with something new, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, and I was made happy by the pieces from the new Aida Barni collection for Spring – Summer 2023. Today I present to you this unusual elegant blouse with the Aida Barni logo that can be worn on more different ways.

Aida Barni is a brand belonging to the Annapurna Group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and global manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines for women and men under the names Annapurna and Aida Barni. Annapurna uses only the latest production techniques available on the market, from cashmere looms to the latest and most advanced machines for making knitwear 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 carried out in Italy, more precisely in the company’s factory located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the district of the same name located in the very heart of Italy (the central part of Italy). “Made in Italy” is more than a manufacturing concept, but this brand has proven that it is much more than the perfect cashmere sweater on the store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression that is remembered.

Aida Barni’s concept of women’s “sporty elegance” is simple and stylish, but rich in materials and subtle details that make this brand iconic because it represents the expression of uniqueness and special class. You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-stocked stores throughout Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it’s more than respect and pure love, because you’re giving a piece that is woven with a love of tradition and a deep respect for art that isn’t given every day.

The blouse you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni SS23 collection, crystal white color and made of the finest cotton. An iconic refreshing color for the new spring season!

Jewelry is perhaps the most important fashion detail that can say a lot about the woman who wears it. Today I will present to you a special cameo jewelry of an Italian brand that is famous in the world – CAMEO ITALIANO. What exactly is Cameo jewelry? A cameo is a material that is carved in raised relief, often depicting a profile of a face, a still life, or some special mythical scene. Cameos, hard or precious stones carved in relief, or imitations of such stones in glass and mollusk shells. Cameos are usually a gem (usually agate, onyx, or sardonyx) that has two layers of different colors, with figures carved in one layer so that they are raised against the background of the other. Cameo is the converse of intaglio, which consists of an incised, or sunken, engraving in the same class of material.

The history of this material goes back to the early Sumerian period (around 3100 BC) to the fall of the Roman civilization, from the Renaissance and from the Neoclassical period in the 18th century. Greek cameos, made of colored quartz, were purely decorative (as opposed to intaglios, which were used as seals) and reached a high artistic level. In contrast, Roman cameos, mostly made of sardonyx, onyx and glass paste, were usually carved with portraits and mythological scenes and were often signed by the artists. Due to the increased interest in classical civilization, the art of cameo engraving was perfected again in the Renaissance.

Cameos were used to mark personalities, as in ancient times. In England during the 16th century, cameos were made with the head of Queen Elizabeth to celebrate the victory over the Spanish Armada. In the 18th and 19th centuries, cameos adorned jewelry such as diadems, belts, brooches, and bracelets.

The history of the CAMEO ITALIANO brand begins in 1957 when Mr. Michele Di Luca opens the doors of his jewelry atelier. Thanks to his ability and creativity as one of the most talented master engravers, he realized his dream – to bring the uniqueness of the cameo shell to the international stage. Michele Di Luca’s great passion for creativity not only earned him a gold medal for his contribution to the economic development of the Campania region, but also inspired his children Gino, Anna, Pina and Marinella to join the company in 1980. In 2012, Gino Di Luca launched the brand that launched cameo as a contemporary gem: CAMEO ITALIANO.

Each cameo is a small, unique and unrepeatable masterpiece, precious thanks to the artisanal approach to production. CAMEO ITALIANO is part of a tradition that preserves techniques that have been passed down for more than two centuries in Torre del Greco, the only place in the world where shell cameos are engraved. A gem that symbolizes the values and authenticity of the “Made in Italy”.

After many years of experience and passion, the engravers of the CAMEO ITALIANO house were awarded the title of Master Engravers. In this type of art, the viewer is seduced by the love that the artist skillfully imprints into his detailed creation, a process that makes it unique, unrepeatable and therefore beautiful. In the rich offer of CAMEO ITALIANO jewelry you can find necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings, rings and watches. CAMEO ITALIANO jewelry is divided into several collections, which I will present to you in detail in the following posts.

In today’s post I present you the earrings that are part of the CAMEO ITALIANO collection.

This time I decided to complete my outfit with FOR ART’S SAKE sunglasses. There is no person who has not resisted a model of sunglasses from this famous British brand, the glasses of this brand are loved by the whole planet because of their refined elegance and unusual design. Glasses from today’s fashion story are an iconic model with a metal gold frame, oversized glasses that are an unusual shade that varies between blue and lilac.

During my stay in the capital of Qatar – Doha, I had the opportunity to get to know the Qatari culture, heritage and tradition, and in addition, I attended the opening of the first Fratelli Rossetti store in the State of Qatar. Fratelli Rossetti celebrates its 70th birthday with the expansion of its retail stores in Italy and abroad, celebrating the year 2023 with the opening of its first boutique in Doha in the most famous Mall of Qatar, a new store that proves a significant presence in the Arab markets in addition to the store in the United Arab Emirates in the Dubai Mall.

I would like to thank the Fratelli Rossetti team for the kind invitation to attend the opening of the first boutique in Qatar, as well as the wonderful gifts that marked my spring wardrobe. As part of this event, I had the chance to see for myself the art of handwork and the beauty of hand woven leather master pieces of art.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. Soon I will show you other outfits from Qatar that can serve as inspiration for the new spring season. See you in a few days at the same place, with some new interesting story.

Best Regards from Doha,

Rose

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.

Fratelli Rossetti: When Italian Fashion Meets Moldovan Wine…

My dear fashionistas, today I present to you a new unusual fashion story that was created during my exciting adventure on the wine roads of Moldova. The pictures that you will have the opportunity to see in today’s post were created in one of the most famous Moldovan wineries – Castel Mimi Winery.

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 the 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 on the streets of Chisinau and other famous locations in this wonderful small country with a big heart in Eastern Europe!

Castel Mimi is one of the best and most visited tourist attractions in Moldova. Included in the top 15 most beautiful wineries in the world, which represents an unusual combination of history and tradition on the one hand and modern architecture for tens of thousands of visitors who come every year from over 80 countries around the world. Visitors can enjoy a tour of the only castle in Moldova, learn about the unique role of the Castel Mimi winery in the history of Moldovan winemaking, learn how they maintain Moldovan traditions through their food and exceptional wines. Visitors also have the opportunity to explore the many interesting terraces and picturesque gardens of the Castel Mimi complex. This is just the beginning of the presentation of this extraordinary complex and in the next post I will explain in more detail everything about this tourist attraction that you should not miss if your trip leads you to the Republic of Moldova!

Today we are meeting again with the famous Italian knitwear brand that you had the opportunity to meet in the previous fashion story.

Finally, we have reached the stars of our today’s fashion story! 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 FW 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 skin color, but for me personally they are some color between burgundy and brown, since material such as velvet is with some quite shiny effect, you can never be sure of the right shade).

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 this work was so unusual, I honestly didn’t even look at the basic color of the shoes in the catalog and I was convinced that the velvet was black, even during the shooting photos in Moldova I was convinced that the shoes were black with colorful embroidery, but I just one moment, when the sunlight was stronger, he realized that it was actually dark blue velvet and that the shoes were navy…

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades.

Fratelli Rossetti: An unique Story about the Brera loafers in the Wadi Rum desert…

My dear fashionistas, today I have a new special fashion adventure from Jordan for you. The pictures from today’s post were taken in the moon desert princess Wadi Rum, a desert in Jordan that I wrote about in detail in one of the previous travelogues on the Mr.M blog.

For all my dear travellers and fashionistas who didn’t get to read my previous travelogues and fashion stories from Jordan on the Mr.M blog or want to remind yourself of some details, take a few minutes of your time and visit the post on the following links:

Today I will share with you my fashion adventure in Wadi Rum and I would like to thank the Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know Jordanian culture and customs.

Today we’re meeting again with Fratelli Rossetti, an iconic Italian footwear brand that I’m sure everyone is familiar with for their comfortable shoes made from the highest quality materials. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply eternal, shoes for all times!

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary business story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives.

The company Fratelli Rossetti is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic iconic models that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht and La Giusta.

In today’s post I present you one of the Brera models. How did this model get 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.

This model of the Brera moccasin you can see on me in today’s post is made of soft, finely finished open weave leather with evenly spaced holes on the upper. Special high-quality workmanship. These shoes have a leather sole.

If you want to stay updated and find out which models of shoes and accessories the Fratelli Rossetti brand has in its offer, visit their official online store and follow them on social networks Facebook and Instagram.

This unusual adventure and unforgettable experience in the magical Wadi Rum was completed by my friends from the Loro Piana brand, who made this experience in Jordan better for me with their products.

The shirt is made of silk and baby cashmere, which are the best friends you can have when high temperatures are present in the desert! For the end, I left a beautiful Loro Piana belt that went perfectly with the moccasins and that fact made me happy because it’s usually harder to combine leather colors, when it comes to different brands.

Fratelli Rossetti: Italian Elegance in the Kingdom of Time…

My dear fashionistas and travellers, welcome to the first special fashion story I prepared for you during my magical adventure in Jordan. Fashion stories will not follow the topics of the travelogue, so there will be, as always, separate topics where I will try to show you the beauty of Jordan through some other “fashion side”.

In today’s fashion story we will enjoy the beauty of sunset in Wadi Rum together with our new Italian friend Fratelli Rossetti. Before starting today’s post, I would like to thank the Jordan Tourism Board – Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know the culture and customs of Jordan better.

The topic of today’s fashion story will be a well-known Italian footwear brand that I’m sure is recognizable to everyone because of its comfortable shoes that are made of the highest quality materials. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply iconic, shoes for all times!

What is the story of this brand? In the middle of the 20th century, more precisely in 1945, Mr. Renzo Rossetti started his story from scratch, where he worked alone to cut leather for several types of sports shoes. His shoes were sold at the famous Brigatti store in Milan, one of the few remaining stores of its kind in the city. After a few years, Fratelli Rossetti saw success, but, wanting to develop further, they transferred the brands and equipment for this special production to Atala Sport in Padua.

So they decided to start their story again from the beginning and decided to switch to the production of classic shoes. Those were the years between 1952 and 1957, which witnessed the orientation and acquisition of new skills in the creation of women’s ballet flats and elegant, simple men’s footwear characterized by extremely flexible and high-quality workmanship. All this led to the creation of a small collection of men’s shoes with contours that differed from the various styles sold at the time. Renzo Rossetti consequently engaged in work that demonstrated his aesthetic sense and artistic perfectionism.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary business story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives.

The company Fratelli Rossetti is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Diego joined the family business in 1978, dealing with the commercial aspects, especially the development of export markets and the expansion of the single brand retail network in Italy and abroad. Under his leadership, the Fratelli Rossetti company was the first Italian fashion brand to open a boutique on Madison Avenue in New York. Today he is the president of the company. In addition to a successful business career, Mr. Diego is intensely interested in photography and devotes a lot of time and attention to charitable activities.

Dario began working in the styling department in 1981, a natural progression from his art education and college courses in shoemaking. An art lover who collects antiques and a passionate collector of vintage cars, he enjoys visiting exhibitions and unusual markets, always looking for inspiration for new creations to enrich the new Fratelli Rossetti collections.

In the 1990s, even before graduating from Bocconi University in Milan, Luca was already involved in the management side of the business, constantly striving to make significant improvements to the company’s processes. Today, in the capacity of general director, he is particularly involved in marketing and collection development. He believes in constant training and innovation, necessary for the fashion sector if it wants to create new trends. Luca is a person who has a great love for travel and is also an avid marathoner: he travels around the world to participate in international marathons.

Diego, Dario and Luca are the new generation leading the Fratelli Rossetti company today, true to tradition but also embracing the new, inevitable changes that keep Fratelli Rossetti at the top of the fashion industry.

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: back in the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic iconic models that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht and La Giusta.

In today’s post I present you one of the Brera models. How did this model get 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.

This model of the Brera moccasin you can see on me in today’s post is made of soft, finely finished open weave leather with evenly spaced holes on the upper. Special high-quality workmanship. These shoes have a leather sole.

The shirt is made of silk and baby cashmere, while the trousers are made entirely of the finest linen, which is the best friend you can have when the temperatures are high! For the end, I left a beautiful Loro Piana leather belt that went perfectly with the loafers and that fact made me happy because it’s usually harder to combine leather colors, when it comes to different brands.
