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.

Today we are meeting again with the famous Italian knitwear brand that you had the opportunity to meet in the previous fashion stories from Moldova. If by some chance you missed reading an interesting story about the André Maurice brand or you want to remind yourself of some interesting details, take a few minutes of your time and enjoy the beauty of Italian luxury knitwear with the following link.
An André Maurice piece of clothing is something more than just a wardrobe, because you have the opportunity to wear an exclusive and unique valuable gift of knowledge. The story of this brand is unique because with the influence of light, colors, smells, atmosphere, shapes and traditions of the territory of origin – Monferrato – combined with the constant desire to discover and face the whole world, we get a unique fashion story that has been passed down from generation to generation for 4 generations.
Art and beauty, culture and knowledge, history and tradition are the axioms that inspire the André Maurice team every day, striving never to indulge in useless compromises or useless shortcuts. Art and culture, in any of its forms, are often able to generate the same surprising sense of satisfaction that has always inspired the André Maurice team in the thinking, design and creation of all collections for a century. In this creative and unusual way, the art and culture of knitting can convey the spirit, love and tradition of the precious hands that participated with a lot of emotion in the creation process.
Tradition is something that is the basic starting point of the André Maurice brand. Gestures, rituals and customs that are repeated and transferred indefinitely, creating a nostalgic illusion of stopping time, which tirelessly chases modernity. Tradition has always been a source of inspiration for the André Maurice team, as an invisible glue between past and present, as well as a deep groove towards the future. By repeating everyday gestures, they remain faithful witnesses of the material and the spiritual burden that should be shown in the work and transmitted over time to generations to come.
André Maurice as a brand that cherishes true values and respects tradition and the spirit of heritage is woven into every piece of clothing, the tradition, culture, and fragrances of Montferrato. Find your Genius Loci and create some of your unforgettable moments to remember this winter season with garments from the latest André Maurice FW22/23 men’s collection and warm your dreams with the softest cashmere.
