One Fashionable Letter from Heart of Lithuania: From Vilnius with Love!

Dear my fashionistas and travelers, welcome to the new fashion adventure on Mr.M blog! I know you love my travel stories, so despite the bad weather in the Lithuanian capital, I tried to make at least one fashion story.

Today we will talk more about fashion, but if by any chance you want to remember the travelogue from Vilnius, the heart of Lithuania, you can read travelogues about this unusual city at the following links:

  1. Letters from Lithuania: Vilnius, the Pearl of the Baltic you will love!
  2. Letters from Lithuania: Vilnius, a City of Rich History and Fairy-tale Architecture…

I must be honest that I looked at the weather forecast several times before the trip to Lithuania, but I sincerely hoped that the weather would improve at least at some point during my stay in the heart of Lithuania, but all hopes sank with rain that did not stop falling… The highlight of this trip is that I “caught” a period of less than an hour to take pictures of my outfit.

Today’s outfit will be a combination of new pieces and some old ones that were dear to you and loved on the blog, so I hope we will remind you of some interesting brands that you liked to see on the Mr.M blog.

Since the weather in Lithuania was more similar to autumn – early winter in Germany, I decided it was safer to bring a winter jacket. Luckily, I wasn’t wrong, as you can see I also wore gloves, which you can notice how spring in the Baltics can be quite different than we can expect during the month of April…

As you know in fashion industry, winter jackets were big, quite bulky and heavy, while today it is completely different. Today, the mirror is of real quality when the jacket is light as a feather, and extremely warm and suitable for all winter conditions. So it is with my jacket – the parka I got from my friends from Paul&Shark. This is its 3rd season and I really have to praise this incredible jacket! We visited the coldest parts of the world together, including temperatures that went down to minus 25 in beautiful, but extremely cold St. Petersburg. We survived various rains and snows, but here we are still hanging out.

The new technologies of the Fill Power 700 and 900 from the Paul & Shark fashion house provide incredible comfort with excellent thermal properties, which allows the jacket to help you withstand even the lowest temperatures. Filling strength 700 and 900 denote the insulation strength by determining its weight-to-strength ratio: it is considered one of the best available jackets on the market, thanks to its high degree of thermal insulation compared to its size. Feathers create “small pockets of air” that create a thermal barrier, ensuring maximum protection.

Since I receive several messages and emails on a weekly basis with the questions: “Marko, do you really keep all these things and do you really wear them?”, I think you got my answer in today’s post. 🙂

There is no person in the world who can hide his joy when he feel the new Italian leather. Today we will meet again the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life. Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. After 100 years, passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation! Raffaella 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 masterpieces that last!

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see Restelli gloves made of special deerskin. These luxury leather gloves are made of the highest quality leather. The lining of these gloves is made of cashmere. For my visit to Vilnius, I decided to take a walk in my navy blue gloves, which were extremely warm and a real fashion accessory for this unexpected “winter spring” in the Baltics!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with tradition and history full of love and patience that are priceless.

One of the brands that has recognized positive energy and love for adventures and unusual journeys is the Swiss watch brand Certina. We have already met with this brand during the winter season on the Mr.M blog and if you are interested to know why this brand is so special and unique, read the story at this link.

Certina watches are known for their precision, reliability and sporty character. The sports watch brand has built an international reputation for quality Swiss workmanship, during its long history, which is more than 130 years long. Certina is a symbol of durability and longevity, which is why the mascot of the turtle armor brand symbolizes robustness and longevity – characteristics that all Certina watches, without exception. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a symbol of the brand since the 1960s. Today, the distinctive outline can still be found on almost every Certina watch, as well as on the brand logo. It evokes the exceptional endurance that characterizes every Certina watch.

Today, after 60 years, Certina DS Jubile adorns my hand. It is an unusual feeling when one such brand with unique watch designs is my new partner in my adventures. The watch you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is the DS Jubile model, which exists in two versions, the basic one with a steel bracelet and the other with a leather bracelet. This watch combines precious materials with maximum precision.

This elegant men’s watch is equipped with an 18K yellow gold frame. It is powered by an innovative PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision and reliability are confirmed by COSC. The watch has a date display. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case make this watch durable and robust: the watch can withstand water pressures up to 10 ATM. Illuminated hands contrast with the background and thus always provide the best readability. The stainless steel bracelet, which is attached to the wrist together with the button, makes this model from Certina impressive!

I will start today’s post with an interesting story about footwear. Good choice of footwear during the cold period, especially during these changing weather conditions is extremely important because it is first important that footwear be comfortable, high quality and durable due to the possibility of sudden spring rains that are possible during the spring season, but this year we made sure that snow can fall in April.

This trademark signifies the quality, passion and originality of the Italian industry, which are certainly the words that describe this unique Italian footwear brand.

Today we will see again our old friends on Mr.M blog such as Woolrich, which you have opportunity to meet during last winter season in some of my previous fashion stories. Woolrich is a brand that was founded back in 1830 in the United States of America (USA) in the state of Pennsylvania. The basic idea of the brand was to equip people who cultivate an immense passion for nature, who do not see natural elements as a kind of obstacle, but as a life mover. One of the founders of the brand – John Rich once said: “Nature tests and inspires us equally, we are here to encourage our own desire for entertainment and learning about the world around us and of course about ourselves.”

Woolrich is a brand with a long history that has been producing sportswear and outerwear for more than 190 years. This brand is the oldest American outerwear brand. During his first decade of existence, Woolrich mainly created clothes for farmers and wood processors who had to work in extreme climatic conditions. In addition to them, Woolrich also supplied soldiers during the Civil War with uniforms and blankets that were made from the warmest wool in true American style. True to its heritage, the Woolrich brand is still one of the largest manufacturers when it comes to sportswear and outerwear.

Today, while writing this post, I was thinking about which three words could describe this amazing brand, and I think I came up with the right ones, which are: comfort, durability, resilience combined with simplicity and innovation. This brand nurtures a sporty, but at the same time elegant style that creates various collections every season. Special compositions of natural and artificial fibers create great pieces that are perfect for times when the outside temperatures are low and we need something to keep us warm. A timeless piece in the Woolrich collection is the Arctic Park, first introduced in 1972, designed to withstand the most extreme temperatures, available with or without a fur collar.

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

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

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

Armand Nicolet: Iconic Swiss Watch Brand with Special Italian Taste and Design…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. We have to admit that this year, April surprised us quite a bit with an unexpected “cold wave”, so even some parts of Europe were covered with a “white cover”. That’s why I used the cold days to enjoy the winter magic and show you some new fashion novelties!

You all know how much I love watches and that I always try to show you some interesting brands of watches. Today we will learn something new about one luxury Swiss brand that makes unusual watches – Armand Nicolet.

Mr. Armand Nicolet was born in the town of Tramelan, a small town located in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. As the son of a celebrated watchmaker, he followed in his father’s footsteps and built his own small watch studio called the Atelier d’Horlogerie, to create his masterpiece in 1902. Unfortunately, in 1939, Mr. Armand Nicolet dies and his son Willy continues the family business.

During the first half of the 20th century, Tramelan became the third pole of the Swiss watch industry. During this period, Nicolet SA specialized in refining complicated mechanical movements for other well-known Swiss brands and specialized in the production of Venus movements whose components were composed of various sophisticated calibres.

Mr. Willy Nicolet was old and unfortunately did not have direct descendants to continue the family business, but fate had a second plan… Meeting Mr. Rolando Braga in 1987, a famous Italian entrepreneur and passionate lover of watches, who has been active in horology circles for more than 20 years , realized that he had found the ideal person to continue this brand success story with a new vision and mission.

Mr. Braga aims to reveal to the world buried treasures like the Armand Nicolet brand and show all the possibilities and creative abilities of the expert team behind this amazing brand. After several years spent reorganizing the brand, in 2000 the Armand Nicolet brand was officially introduced to the market at the Basel Fair and immediately gained worldwide popularity and recorded incredible success.

Armand Nicolet is one of the few independent watch brands that is still active in the territory of Bern and in Tramelan itself, known for its traditional watchmaking.

Fashion Diary: Stylish Winter Story made of Refined Shades of Brown…

My dear fashionistas, today we continue our fashion adventures and I present to you the outfit that you had the opportunity to see in the previous post where we talked about some news in the fur industry. To talk about the future, we need to know how the foundations were laid and how fur has been valued over the centuries. Fur, a natural material that has been loved and appreciated for centuries, from the Stone Age through the Middle Ages until today. From a material used only to keep people warm, over time it has grown into a status symbol and symbol of the aristocracy and nobility. Prominent merchants, esteemed people, and even some prominent members of the royal family were great lovers of fur.

Fur has been valued and respected for centuries, but in recent years things have changed and some new questions are being asked. Has the use of this precious material in the world of fashion come to an end? Is the fur industry really an environmental problem?

Let’s go back in history and see how it really was… In the Stone Age, people wore fur and leather every day as a basic necessity of life. Throughout history, the approach to fur has changed significantly and it has become an inevitable part of the royal family and a sign of wealth.

Marie Antoinette and her spouse Louis XVI experienced great humiliation. The queen has been repeatedly described as frivolous, selfish and immoral because of her lavish lifestyle. However, she was a fashion icon of that time and a large part of her “fashion kingdom” was made of precious fur. Her husband did not lag behind in his passion for fur. Yes, you read that right, men have been big fur lovers throughout history. Louis XVI adored his fur coats and cloaks, and even liked to use fur as additional fashion details on his shoes.

What has changed so far in the attitudes regarding the use of fur in the fashion world in the eyes of the public? Obviously, there are many advantages and disadvantages on this topic, but at least it deserves an open discussion, which never happened because all the doors for natural fur suddenly closed all over the world. Today, some things in the fashion world have changed and fur is back on the big door! We now have new opportunities provided by the International Fur Federation to satisfy both parties, the fur industry and animal friends. Eco fur cannot be compared to natural fur in beauty, quality and durability.

In recent years, the fur industry has been exposed to the challenges of procuring animals in strict compliance with all practices and laws on animal welfare and environmental protection. Long before the proposed law on work in the fur industry, the fur industry itself worked diligently to adhere to the highest standards of animal welfare. Today’s customers demand to know more about what they are buying.

In order to not only combat all the adversity, but also to change the perceptions of wearing fur, the International Fur Federation has developed a formal certification and traceability process, Furmark®. Fur is one of the most sustainable natural products in the world of fashion. The use of organic materials is a complete contrast and rejection of fast and plastic fashion, which are typically oil derivatives. Fur epitomises slow fashion; it is treated as a purchase of heritage and lasts for generations.

The International Fur Federation has 56 members in over 40 countries around the world. The members of the federation are all actors in the fur industry, including farmers, producers, brokers, auction houses, retailers and designers. Each of these members have signed a strict code of conduct that obliges them to comply with laws relevant to the fur industry in their home countries.

The International Fur Federation is an organization founded more than 50 years ago and is the only organization that represents the international fur industry and regulates its practice and trade. The Federation aims to promote the fur business, establish certification and traceability programs for welfare and the environment, as well as support young designers and small traders who intend to develop in the fashion and fur industry.

The Furmark® certification system was developed by the International Fur Federation (IFF) with associate members, who are eminent representatives of luxury brands, all of whom work with natural fur as part of the supply chain. There are three key principles on which this certification is based: science, independent inspection and transparency.

Furmark® is a comprehensive global certification and a system for monitoring the natural fur production chain that guarantees animal welfare and compliance with all environmental standards. The Furmark certification system includes only wild and farmed natural fur on farms from leading animal protection programs (including the first animal welfare program introduced on the basis of the European Commission ‘s data on self – regulation and Co-regulatory initiatives).

If you want to know more information about the Furmark formal process of certification and traceability of natural fur, take your time to read my previous story at the following link.

Due to its unique holistic approach and with great respect for natural resources, the Skandinavik Fur brand rationally consumes fur. With good imagination, vision and skill of the master, they turn all the remnants of fur into beautiful fashion items whenever possible.

Fur as a material in itself is not exclusively intended for women, but it can also be an unusual accessory for men that will refresh the wardrobe of every modern man.

You’ve probably ever wondered what are the reasons for famous men, famous rappers who love chinchilla fur and long fox fur coats. The answer is simple, such furs exude magnificent energy that reflects luxury and style. Mink is the right choice to achieve a more elegant look, and a fur-lined parka or shearling jackets are slightly more conservative options.

The jacket from today’s post, a short jacket with a hood, is made of mink, which is specially painted in three colors. This model is at the same time elegant and urban and has a certain sporty elegance, so it can be worn by people who are oriented to a slightly different sports fashion sense that does not require exclusively elegant notes.

My fur jacket is made of SAGA mink. Sharp lines, comfort and practicality are some of the basic characteristics of this luxury piece. It can be worn with a white shirt, jeans with an interesting leather belt, or you can combine a nice brown-camel nice cashmere sweater with elegant trousers, as I showed in today’s post. The hood is made of mink on both sides and on the top, because it is suitable for a luxury item like this jacket.

Today we are also continuing our fashion adventure with one well-known Swiss watch brand. Certina watches are known for their precision, reliability and sporty character. The sports watch brand has built an international reputation for quality Swiss workmanship, during its long history, which is more than 130 years long.

Certina is a symbol of durability and longevity, which is why the mascot of the turtle armor brand symbolizes robustness and longevity – characteristics that all Certina watches, without exception, carry. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a personal symbol of the brand since the 1960s. To this day, the distinctive outline can still be found on almost every Certina watch, as well as on the brand logo. It evokes the exceptional endurance that characterizes every Certina watch.

Today, after 60 years, Certina DS Jubile adorns my hand. It is an unusual feeling when one such brand with unique watch designs is my new partner in my adventures.

The watch you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is the DS Jubile model, which exists in two versions, the basic one with a steel bracelet and the other with a leather bracelet.

This watch combines precious materials with maximum precision. This elegant men’s watch is equipped with an 18K yellow gold frame. It is powered by an innovative PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision and reliability are confirmed by COSC. The watch has a date display. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case make this watch durable and robust: the watch can withstand water pressures up to 10 ATM. Illuminated hands contrast with the background and thus always provide the best readability. The stainless steel bracelet, which is attached to the wrist together with the button, makes this model from Certina impressive!

If you want to be updated and find out which models Certina has to offer, visit their Official Online Store and follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

The sweater that complemented my outfit today is made of 100% cashmere with a special handmade art that takes hours of work and that is why this sweater is so unique and radiates a special dose of “winter” elegance.

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

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in renowned department stores and multi-brand stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni knitwear piece, it is more than respect and love because you are giving a piece in which love and deep respect for art is woven that is not seen every day.

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

Since the today’s outfit was in a certain elegant casual tone with the classic trousers and cashmere sweater, I decided to wear my favorite Roberto Cavalli high-top crocodile sneakers. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way. Of course, the dark chocolate brown color went great with the colors that you can find in my wardrobe. Roberto Cavalli is a famous Italian brand that is at the very top of the fashion industry and has conquered the fashion scene.

Bearing in mind sustainability and fashion development, they have been successfully making luxury winter outerwear from alpaca, wool and shearlings for decades. Every step in creating their master-pieces, the HiSO brand takes an environmentally conscious approach when creating its products. Originally founded in Toronto’s Fashion District, the brand has grown from a small family boutique to an internationally recognized outerwear brand.

HiSO is one of the most renowned Canadian luxury winter outerwear brands. Due to the extremely difficult climatic conditions, the professional team of this brand is here to overcome all weather conditions and to design and adapt winter pieces that you will love. What is the secret to the success of this brand?

All processes from procurement and design to final production, HiSO controls every step of the creative and production process, which makes this brand special. HiSO was formerly known as the Hide Society, which has become synonymous with the art and luxury of jackets and coats since 1975, a nearly half-century-long tradition. Impressive, isn’t it?

The family company, which is currently successfully run by the second generation, was founded in Canada. HiSO provides top quality and design in every one of its garments, which is woven with 45 years of experience that can be felt in every detail. Headquartered in Toronto, with special offices in Berlin and a production facility in Poland, HiSO soon became the world’s leading manufacturer of shearlings.

Exactly 20 years ago, in 2002, inspired by their efforts and building a family business from an early age, twin brothers Karl and Mark took over the company’s leadership with a new mission – to reposition and raise the brand to the world market, introducing a new name HiSO.

Their goal was to revive the classic vision of coats and jackets where they will combine fashion with the functionality of everyday life. Their vision brought completely new innovative designs while still retaining the luxurious materials leather, fur and precious fabrics of exceptional quality by which this brand is recognizable.

With the great desire to expand the range of products, the rebranding has led to the spread of precious fabrics (cashmere, wool and alpaca). HiSO bought a factory in Toronto, where all clothes made of precious fibers are now produced. Shearlings are still produced at HiSO’s European factory in Poland.

Soon after the transformation of the brand, HiSO became a favorite global name known for its Black Label division, which is focused on new markets.

In the fall of 2020, new inspiration emerged. Based on the achieved results, which was built on success with the HiSO Black Label, the White Label was born! Following the modern market of luxury and prestige, the White Label collection “dazzles” all fashion lovers with their designs who cannot satisfy their appetites for new fashion trends.

HiSO is one of the few brands that is actively engaged in an ecological approach to sustainable fashion through every step of creating their own garments. Whether alpaca, cashmere, wool or shearlings, HiSO works exclusively with environmentally conscious companies, providing the best methods and materials used to protect the environment.

HiSO leather and fur are of ethical origin, because they are a by-product of the food industry. Using this product essentially restores materials that would otherwise be disposed of and thus create waste. Leather and fur for shearlings are natural materials obtained from tanners that support sustainability according to international standards that regulate by-products of animal origin from their origin to the moment when they are produced for final-end use.

Respect for and maintenance of the vision of common values is maintained by HiSO through cooperation with suppliers who have similar views on the importance of sustainability. The benefits of this cooperation include: respect for the right to clean water, energy, energy management and reduced emissions and recycling.

HiSO’s Tennant shearling jacket that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of the highest quality leather and fur with the addition of fox fur on the collar. When buying your HiSO garment, you can always contact their team who will be at your disposal and help you choose the ideal piece for yourself or your loved one. Also, this brand offers custom-made winter jackets and coats, so you can provide yourself with a piece that will suit you. In addition, you can choose the type of material (leather or material) as well as the type of fur and color. HiSO is a brand that strives to fulfill all the needs and desires of customers in the right way and to be a part of the HiSO family with pleasure.

Today we are also continuing our fashion adventure with one well-known Swiss watch brand. Certina watches are known for their precision, reliability and sporty character. The sports watch brand has built an international reputation for quality Swiss workmanship, during its long history, which is more than 130 years long.

When was the idea for this brand of sports watches born? Brothers Adolf and Alfred Kurt founded their own watch factory in the Swiss city of Grenchen. In this idyllic place at the foot of Jura Mountain between Solothurn and Bila, the brothers and their team of only three employees developed a brand within their family home. In a short time, they achieved great success and the Kurt brothers opened a factory and employed a large number of workers.

A few years later, in 1906 to be precise, the Kurt brothers presented a brand for their watches: “Grana”, abbreviated to “Granakus”, the Latin name Grenchen. The quality of these watches was immediately recognized and won several awards. In the 1920s, Alfred Kurt’s sons Erwin and Hans joined the company and led it through difficult times of the Great Depression, known as the Great Depression.

During the 1930s, the company increasingly used the new name Certina, for good reason: it is easily pronounced in all languages and is based on the Latin word “certus”, which means “sure”. The brand was officially registered in 1939, and in 1949 Certina was chosen to be the only official brand name.

Certina is a symbol of durability and longevity, which is why the mascot of the turtle armor brand symbolizes robustness and longevity – characteristics that all Certina watches, without exception, carry. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a personal symbol of the brand since the 1960s. To this day, the distinctive outline can still be found on almost every Certina watch, as well as on the brand logo. It evokes the exceptional endurance that characterizes every Certina watch.

At the end of the fifties, more precisely in 1959, the company presented the first Certina watch with the DS concept. Certina DS is an automatic watch that is extremely resistant to shocks with a water resistance of up to 20 bar (200 meters). This sets new standards for the entire generation of watches.

Today, after 60 years, Certina DS Jubile adorns my hand. It is an unusual feeling when one such brand with unique watch designs is my new partner in my adventures.

The watch you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is the DS Jubile model, which exists in two versions, the basic one with a steel bracelet and the other with a leather bracelet.

This watch combines precious materials with maximum precision. This elegant men’s watch is equipped with an 18K yellow gold frame. It is powered by an innovative PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision and reliability are confirmed by COSC. The clock has a date display. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case make this watch durable and robust: the watch can withstand water pressures up to 10 ATM. Illuminated hands contrast with the background and thus always provide the best readability. The stainless steel bracelet, which is attached to the wrist together with the button, makes this model from Certina impressive!

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

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new strain of Omicron Coronavirus in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind and enjoy the winter magic, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

If you have been fully vaccinated (2 vaccine doses or 3rd booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. If you are going to spend the winter in European cities, I would ask you to respect and follow the local laws related to the health care of the local community.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT page. See you soon, stay tuned!

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

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

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

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are a smart “fashion” investment and practical during the winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater, it is a gift from the heart, because a cashmere sweater carries a certain symbolism with it. Also, sometimes you need to surprise yourself with something new and refresh your life, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, and maybe it’s a new unusual sweater that will bring a smile to your face!

Aida Barni is a brand that belongs to the Annapurna group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and world manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines Annapurna and Aida Barni.

Annapurna uses only the latest production techniques available on the market, from cashmere looms to the latest and most advanced knitwear machines of all sizes. The current production capacity is about 120,000 pieces per year. It is important to note that the entire production cycle is performed in Italy, more precisely in the factory of the company located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the district of the same name located in the heart of Italy (central Italy).

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

Annapurna is a name that associates everyone with exceptional mountain landscapes, especially the mountain range in the Himalayas where goats live with their winter fleece, hiding the soft, warm “cloak” that made them so famous.

Aida Barni is an imaginative and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a lifetime goal for a woman who decided to enter the world of business in the late seventies and reach the very top of this challenging and one of the most difficult sectors of the market.

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

The Aida Barni brand was created as an artistic expression of the way of life and existence, the essence of unstressed chic, refined luxury. A collection for men and women dedicated to everyone who loves timeless and elegant knitwear that encompasses true elegance in the preciousness of materials, shapes and details.

The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts them to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Fans of the Aida Barney brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

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

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-known multibrand shops and department stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and pure love because you are giving a piece in which love for tradition and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day are woven.

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

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

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

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

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

Woolrich: We Keep Your Dreams Warm…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Customers of the Aida Barni brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

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

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

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in multi-brand stores and department stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and love because you are giving a piece in which love and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day is woven.

For all Aida Barni fans in Germany, I have discovered two men’s spots where you can find and enjoy in the beauty of Aida Barni incredible knitwear: Braun Hamburg and Mientus retail stores.

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