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!

See you soon and continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog! How did you like my outfit today?

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 follow 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 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.

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!

With Love,
Mr.M

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.

If you want to stay tuned 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.

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.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with 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 in general.

Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years! Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and a love for lasting masterpieces!

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

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered the beauty of winter shades of brown color together and I hope you got the inspiration for your perfect winter outfit! We will continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog soon! How did you like my outfit today?

Aida Barni: Sophisticated Expression of a Chic Way of Living…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion story on Mr.M blog! Winter is my favorite time of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers” and when we can take out of the wardrobe our favorite knitted pieces that keep us warm during the cold winter temperatures.

I started today’s adventure with old friends, I’m sure you remember the Aida Barni brand, synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian cashmere. Last winter we enjoyed the beauties of pastel colors, while this year I decided to paint the cold winter days with bright colors.

If you want to remind yourself of the stories from the previous winter season with Aida Barni, visit this link. I’m sure you will enjoy!

I wanted to make you happy with a new fashion story for a good fashionable start of the week, because December is the sweetest month of the year, when we are looking for gifts for our loved ones. In the previous post, I gave you one of the suggestions – perfume.

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift 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.

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 all the latest production techniques available on the market, from cotton 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 province of the same name located in the heart of Italy – Tuscany.

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

Annapurna is a name that evokes 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 a symbol of a 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 blog post you have the opportunity to see a red turtleneck sweater made of 100% cashmere with special embroidery and work on the front in the form of embroidered lines reminiscent of the idyllic winter in the mountains – beautiful natural glaciers that you have the opportunity to see in every mountain region.

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.

I completed today’s outfit with a Brunello Cucinelli down jacket with fur trim that may be black and at first sight you think that black is not interesting, but the materials which were used for this incredible “piumino” (Italian word for down jacket) will do everything to change your mind.

The unusual combination of material and natural fur on the collar makes this jacket the perfect piece for cold winter days. With this jacket, you will forget whether you went out for just a walk or went to work, because the secret discreet views of passers-by will give the impression that you are on the runway.

During the shooting of this outfit look, a lot of people asked me about the jacket and the turtleneck, they were standing out pieces of this outfit.

Of course, as a big fan of backpacks, this year I put this exceptional piece of the famous French fashion house Louis Vuitton on my wish list and my sister decided to be my Santa Claus this year and give me this beautiful backpack that I am sure I will wear for a long time. I promise that I will do my best to fit it as well as possible with my outfits.

The iconic LV Monogram print and the new model are a great combination which was the right decision during the creation of the new collection of this prestigious French fashion house.

The jeans also came from Italy, a gift from my dear friends from the fashion house MooRER, with whom we will meet again this winter fashion season as well. Simply, some good habits do not need to be changed!

Letters from Turkey: Istanbul, City of Two Continents…

My dear travellers, I hope you are well and ready for a new adventure! After a long break after tsarist Russia, a magical adventure that we all experienced together at the beginning of this year in St. Petersburg, it’s time for a new destination!

Today’s post will be dedicated to the city that I truly love because of its oriental charm and cordial mentality of the people. As a person whose travel has become more than a passionate hobby, I must admit that I missed some little things like the loudspeaker at the airport, travelers who are excited to look for their passports and flight tickets, especially the youngest adventurers who see special edition of M&M sweets in the airport shop.

This time I had the opportunity to experience the ease of travel with the unique and elegant suitcases and travel accessories of the Italian house Bric’s. The Bellagio collection allows all travel hedonists to travel in style with appropriate travel pieces that captivate with true elegance, while on the other hand, the Life Pelle collection nurtures the beauty of leather travel pieces with which you can travel around the world.

Italian fashion house Bric’s is the best ally for any trip with style: the Bellagio Trolley Organizer and the backpack from the Life Pelle collection.

Bric’s story begins with Mr. Mario Briccola’s dreams of quality luggage and leather goods in 1952 in the Como region. The brand has become internationally known for its handmade luggage made of the finest Tuscan leather and the most modern, durable nylon. Although Bric’s has now outgrown the original workshop, love and a personal stamp for every piece made are still present in every piece today.

Now the second generation of the Briccola family is providing its heritage of quality, style and attention to detail which Mr. Mario Briccola started. Known as the best Italian brand for luggage quality, Bric’s continued to justify its reputation. From luggage over handbags to spacious cosmetic bags and accessories quality workmanship is easily noticeable.

Using only the finest materials such as micro antelope skin that is resistant to all weather conditions and leather tanned in plants, Bric’s luggage is made to withstand everything and give you a sense of security and the beauty of travel in style.

With several leading stores around the world, Bric’s continues to develop Mario Briccola’s dream and becomes a world-renowned brand in the field of travel. Bric’s is a story about family, hard work, crafts and a company where dreams really come true.

This adventure would not have been possible without the cordial support of my friends from Air Montenegro who allowed me to feel the beauty and security of traveling during the pandemic.

Air Montenegro is a new airline founded by the Government of Montenegro at the beginning of 2021. The first flight of this company was made in June this year. Air Montenegro’s vision is to be one of the key pillars of tourism, to support the national economy and the economy as a sustainable company that will create a large number of jobs and reduce unemployment in Montenegro.

Responsible and sustainable business positively affect long-term relationships with society, resources and the environment. Air Montenegro also takes care of the safety and health of passengers and employees. It is important to note that Air Montenegro has received the international Safe Travels badge.

“Safe Travel” is a special tourist label that allows travelers to identify destinations and companies around the world, which in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have adopted global standards of health and hygiene.

Air Montenegro joined the European Association of Airlines of the Region (ERA) in October this year. One of the main goals of the Association, which has over 55 airlines, is to represent the interests of all members before major European regulators, governments and legislators in order to encourage and develop awareness of long-term and sustainable growth for the sector and the airline industry.

The first commercial flight of this company was on the route Podgorica – Sarajevo on June 1, 2021, as part of the Montenegrin national football team that traveled to Sarajevo. Regular commercial traffic of Air Montenegro was launched on June 10 with the route Podgorica – Belgrade. The fleet of this young airline consists of Embraer 195 medium-range passenger planes.

For all fans of the Montenegrin coast, the airline Air Montenegro has special offers for flights Frankfurt – Podgorica and Ljubljana – Podgorica and Tivat as well. These flights are performed throughout the year, so you have the opportunity to enjoy the natural wild beauty of Montenegro throughout the year. Also, one of the destinations in the region that you can visit with Air Montenegro is Banja Luka, which proudly bears the title of “Green Valley” as a symbol of beauty and greenery.

In today’s post, I will share my adventure and what a trip with Air Montenegro to Oriental Istanbul looks like! If you are ready to feel the magic of traveling during the New Year holidays, visit the Air Montenegro website and book your seat by the window so you can enjoy the enchanting view!

To get to magical Istanbul, the first thing you need to do is head to beautiful Tivat where you have two options: take a break and enjoy the beauties of Tivat and its surroundings or continue your journey to Istanbul and maybe during the return to experience the charms of wonderful Montenegro.

The flight to Tivat is maybe short, but the picturesque landscapes that you will have the opportunity to see will be worth as a new life experience that will not be forgotten. My sincere advice is to prepare your phones and capture these moments when you fly over the mountain ranges and suddenly see the beauty of the Montenegrin coast, these contrasts are just amazing!

Since I had the opportunity to visit Podgorica a few years ago, it was a great pleasure for me to have the opportunity to see what the Mediterranean part looks like and to feel the beauty of the coastal landscapes.

Just landing at the airport in Tivat was a fantastic experience because you have the opportunity to see the Bay of Kotor. I have always been fascinated by airports located by the water. As it was cold and changeable in Belgrade, the weather in Tivat was unusually warm and sunny for this time of year!

Do you remember the possibilities I mentioned a moment ago? I decided that due to the terms of the consultation with the doctors and procedures that awaited me in Turkey, it was best to continue my journey to Istanbul, so I had at least 2 hours to enjoy the beauty and smell of water in the Mediterranean.

The time at the airport passed quickly, while I picked up my suitcase and performed all the necessary procedures, it was time to board the second flight to my final destination – Istanbul.

The flight Tivat – Istanbul lasts about an hour and a half, maybe about 1 hour and 45 minutes, just enough to enjoy “life in the clouds”. Istanbul has more airports, it is important to know that Air Montenegro planes land at the new international airport in Istanbul. Refreshment and in-flight snacks are available on all Air Montenegro flights.

ISTANBUL

Are there words that can describe this picturesque metropolis that today has over 15 million inhabitants, yes you read well over 15 million people live in Istanbul! Some sources unofficially claim that about 20 million people live in Istanbul, but that is unconfirmed information. Honestly, I believe that about 18 million people live in Istanbul, so maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Why do all roads lead to Istanbul today? Istanbul is considered the economic, social and cultural center of the Republic of Turkey. In addition, Istanbul is one of the most populous cities in the world, the seventh largest city in the world and the largest city in Europe. Istanbul is considered a bridge between East and West.

I admit that I have been to Istanbul more times than I have years and this city is one of my favorites because it has that unusual oriental charm and it is a city that never sleeps! There are many reasons why tourists come to Istanbul today, many come for good shopping, some for visiting cultural heritage, while some like me come this time for the famous medical tourism.

Taksim Square, located in the Beyoglu district in the European part of Istanbul, is a major tourist and recreational district known for its restaurants, shops and hotels. It is considered the heart of modern Istanbul with the central station of the Istanbul metro network. Taksim Square is also famous for the monument of the Republic, which you can see better in my picture with a simit (bagel).

Don’t miss the opportunity to catch the famous red tram number two and ride along the entire Istikal Street. It is a unique experience and will be remembered for a lifetime!

When you come to Istanbul, on the streets of the city you will notice the curled heads of men who have had hair transplants, masks on the noses of men and women who have solved their health and aesthetic problem, of course there are women in their golden age who proudly show that have regained their youth.

Since I came to Istanbul this time with the intention of helping myself, I did something beautiful and useful for myself in order to improve my health and beautify myself, I counted in myself how many people on the street really did something for themselves.

I admit that at first I was amazed while pulling the suitcase, I was not very active in counting, but I think I met at least 30 people who had some aesthetic procedure, mostly nose surgery or hair transplantation.

Turkish plastic surgeons are considered one of the best in Europe, perhaps even in the world. Also, other branches of medicine have been developed, especially oncology, which unfortunately has an increasing number of cases and patients come to Turkey to find a cure and their salvation.

In addition to aesthetic and plastic surgery, dental services are represented in Turkey, as well as services related to gastric surgery, procedures that enable significant and permanent weight loss.

Since many of you contacted me about obesity surgery while I was in Istanbul, I inquired a little about these interventions. Gastric surgery as part of obesity surgery is drastically cheaper in Turkey than in other countries in Europe and the world as well. Due to the large number of patients coming from Europe and the world, Turkish doctors have gained experience. Since there are several types of procedures related to obesity surgery, I am not competent to talk about it in more detail, but I can tell you that the prices are quite cheaper than in Germany.

Many people from Europe and the world went to Istanbul to solve this health problem and really managed to lose weight, but I note that it is necessary to be careful and choose the right clinic for any type of intervention. Obesity is a serious health problem and surgery to reduce the weight is serious and you need to find the right doctor to help you.

Most people who followed my experience on social media were interested in how medical tourism works in Turkey. Is it really based on the principle “you come in, go out and it’s over” and after a few days you just fly back home or is it just a fairy tale.

When it comes to plastic surgery, everything is extremely simple. The most important thing is not to make a mistake in the initial selection of the clinic and the doctor, and everything else goes according to plan. The second step is arranging an arrival in Turkey and the first consultation with a selected plastic surgeon.

At the first consultation, you meet the doctor and try to explain all your wishes in more detail so that the doctor understands the reason for your visit, as I explained in detail what bothers me on my nose and face in general. When it comes to communicating with the staff at the clinic, a large number of clinics have staff who speak some of the languages from your country or hire an interpreter who spends time with you at the clinic, as well as afterwards during the operation.

When you have finished the first consultation with your chosen doctor, his assistant will schedule an intervention. Sometimes the clinic immediately offers you the date of the operation, but in most cases the clinic schedules a consultation with the patient in the period when it can perform the intervention, so that enough time is left for the patient to decide after the first consultation.

Local transport around Istanbul, hotel – clinic – hotel is free in most cases so you don’t have to worry about how to get to the clinic and back to the hotel, everything is already organized. As for accommodation (hotels) when you go to Istanbul on this occasion, clinics mostly offer packages where hotels + transport around Istanbul and airport transportation and interventions are included in the price, but it is necessary to agree with the clinic in advance.

My mom and I were given an appointment for surgery which was two days after the first consultation so everything was very fast. You can use your free time to explore Istanbul.

Also a question which was repeated many times was the time which you need to spent in Istanbul during the visit. Depending on the type of intervention, the period that needs to be spent in Istanbul also depends. Calculate that plastic surgery takes between 10 and 15 days, depending on the procedure you are performing.

These were just introductory information about medical tourism, you will get all the more detailed information in my next blog post which will be dedicated to the operations that my mom and I did in Istanbul.

This post will be interesting to you as a kind of tourist guide that you can visit and see in Istanbul before and after the procedure. The operations did not slow me down too much, maybe I rested for 2-3 days and after that I went out on the street to see people and try various Turkish delights!

Everyone who goes to Istanbul for the first time is eager to explore this city and that is why they first head to Fatih, the part of the city where Hagia Sophia is located, the Blue Mosque and other sights for which Istanbul is famous. Of course, there is also the Capali Carsi in the neighborhood (the famous Grand Bazaar) where you can shop for interesting leather goods, sweets and souvenirs. When going to the Grand Bazaar, prepare your negotiating skills because Turks are known as skilled traders and bargaining is an integral part of negotiations. Take 1 to 2 days to tour this part of the city, depending on how interested you are about this kind of sights and shopping.

When you are done with the cultural uplift so that you can brag to your neighbors and friends about seeing some important sights in Istanbul, you can choose whether you are more for a shopping marathon (shopping without borders) or a cruise.

Istanbul is a promised paradise for all shopaholics, without false promises Istanbul is a place where there is a price range from the cheapest brands you can imagine, affordable jewelry and interesting things to extremely expensive things. No one was left empty-handed in this city, everyone found something for themselves and bought it, whether it was a small thing or an expensive thing.

If you are a fan of luxury fashion, and honestly your budget can’t afford it, there are more than 10 outlet shopping malls that are bigger than usual shopping centres in Germany and Europe so you can find everything your heart desires from the most famous brands from previous seasons.

The most famous outlet shopping malls are: Optimum Outlet, Viaport Outlet, Starcity Outlet.

Of course there are others, but these are with a better offer of brands. These shopping malls are located on the outskirts of the city, so get ready for an adventure in local transport. It can be an interesting and unforgettable adventure!

My hotel was close to Nisantasi, a paradise for luxury shopping where you can find all the world famous luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Berlutti, Max Mara, Gucci and others.

Currently, the choice of brands on Nisantashi has been reduced as all the big fashion houses have moved to big malls like Istinye Park, Emaar Square Mall (new mall), Kanyon Mall and Zorlu Mall.

During my last visit to Istanbul, I visited all the mentioned shopping malls, but as soon as I took out my professional camera, security guards came to warn me that photography is not allowed, so unfortunately you will be abridged the modernist beauties of luxury shopping malls in Istanbul, so you will need to feel it by yourself especially now when seasonal sales starts.

Nisantasi is a meeting place for Turkish designers, so if you happen to pay attention, you will notice numerous fashion ateliers that simply entice customers with their creations to look at their latest collections. Diamonds on the dress, no problem! Everything can be found in this city which is located at the crossroads of East and West.

Due to that fact, Istanbul has become a paradise for shopaholics from the Far and Middle East who come to Istanbul to feel the European version of the Oriental East.

Nisantasi is a popular district of Sisli district on the European side of Istanbul. It consists of settlements such as Tesvikije, Mačka, Osmanbey and Pangalti. A popular shopping and residential district, it is one of the most exclusive districts of Istanbul.

Here, as I just mentioned, you can find stores of the most famous fashion brands, department stores, cafes, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. Abdi Ipekci Street, the most expensive shopping street in Turkey in terms of rental prices, stretches from the Macka and Tesvikiye districts to the center of Nisantasi.

The Nisantasi district is unrivaled in terms of entertainment and cultural content. High class restaurants, cafes and pubs with various additional activities. In the neighboring areas there are large shopping malls such as Cevahir Mall which can be easily reached by public transport or a short walk.

Pangalti, which connects Nisantashi with Mecidiyeköy, is full of local shops and brands. In other words, Nisantasi can give you the opportunity to enjoy prestige and luxury with the ability to have everything at your fingertips.

When I’m on Nisantasi, I always like to go down to the neighboring district of Besiktas, the area where the famous stadium of the famous Turkish club is located and the part that goes out on the Bosphorus. The water always relaxes me and I like to watch the boats and seagulls that adorn this idyllic picture of Istanbul.

Besiktas is located on the European shores of the Bosphorus. The district encompasses important landmarks along the European shores of the Bosphorus, from the Dolmabahçe Palace in the south to the Bebek area in the north.

This area is home to lesser-known neighborhoods overlooking the Bosphorus where you have the opportunity to see expensive villas in Turkish series that we love to watch. I sincerely love this district because of the opportunity to go ashore and see the boats and to enjoy the beauty of the Dolmabahçe Palace, which I sincerely advise everyone to visit when they come to Istanbul.

Although this is a relatively small district of Istanbul, both in terms of population and area, Besiktas is one of the most important areas of the city due to its business and trade zones, historical institutions, universities and of course the fabulous view of the Bosphorus and waterways.

Here on the coast you can see locals resting and fishing, all the way to those curious tourists like me who came to admire Istanbul and experience this view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, which we only have the opportunity to see every day in favorite Turkish soap operas.

In addition to shopping, Istanbul is ideal for gourmets because Turkish cuisine is rich and their specialties are unique. If you are more of a street food lover then only three words are allowed: Doner, Börek and Simit. Doner is like Greek gyros that is made exclusively in Turkey with chicken and veal meat with various side dishes, the price of one doner portion varies from 12 to 35 lira depending on the portion size and additives.

Börek is known to everyone, pastry that you will not forget, the price of one serving of Borek is around 15 to 20 lira and finally Simit who never let me down on the street because on every corner in Istanbul you can see an interesting red stroller with bagels that currently cost 2.50 Turkish lira , about 23-25 euro cents. To understand the ratio currency, 1 euro is worth between 11 and 12 Turkish lira.

Istanbul is a city that you just have to love because it gets under your skin. It is a city that awakens a special kind of emotion in everyone. Istanbul is a city with many faces and I am sure that each of you will find at least one that you will adore. This is a city that will delight you every time you visit.

Some people say that it is necessary to come to Istanbul at least until you find at least one answer to the famous question: “Why do you love Istanbul?“.

Every good adventure has its beginning and end, so after less than 3 weeks in beautiful Istanbul it’s time to go home… This adventure was special for me because I fulfilled my greatest wishes and thank you to everyone who took the time to send quick message and to give me words of support. In a few days I will share with you my experience and what my makeover process looked like.

At the very end of this post, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my friends from Air Montenegro who made it possible for my adventure to be just perfect. I sincerely hope that we will meet soon be again and discover the world together.

I invite all travel lovers to visit the official website of the new airline Air Montenegro and book your ticket to Montenegro or some European metropolis! They say that the New Year in Montenegro is magical, it’s worth checking out!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Bric’s for their trust and look forward to being a member of the Bric’s family and I am confident that together we will embark on new adventures early next year and write some new travel pages of the Mr.M online diary!

My dear adventurers, we have come to the end of this first special post from Turkey which would not have been possible without the selfless help of Air Montenegro and Arpanu Medical Group, partners who made it possible for me to share my impressions of medical tourism in Turkey.

Time always flies when a person has a good time!

Burberry: Black Trench is a Statement Fashion Item that will never go out of Style!

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I sincerely hope you are well and take care of your health during this unfavorable worldwide health situation. Before I start today’s post, I would like to sincerely thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful messages and inquiries about my recovery after the operations in Istanbul.

Mom and I are fine and recovery is underway. We feel fantastic and we are very happy with the results! I will soon write about our experience and more details about the procedures, so you will have the opportunity to learn more about our operations and our stay in Turkey in special blog post.

We all know that black is a symbol of eternal elegance and sophistication. Also, it is known that there is no woman in the world who does not have at least one black dress in her wardrobe, we all know what the famous Coco Chanel said about the little black dress, so there is no need to quote her. 🙂

Is it the same with trench and overcoats? Do we all need a black trench or coat? Today’s post will be dedicated to this eternal – “iconic” piece that never goes out of style.

I believe that everyone who follows my blog from the beginning knows mine about my fondness for double-breasted trenches and coats. These are just fashion pieces that are my real “pain” point and I have significantly more of these things than the average man in the wardrobe…

Many of you know that I have been running away from black for years because I was honest with myself and others, so I was just convinced that black can suit people who have lighter blond hair and blue or green eye color with of course a normal tan color since, I’m white tan as goat cheese, but we’ll talk about my blood analysis some other time! 🙂

I will share with you one fact, and that is that this gabardine black trench is also my first trench of black color and this length… I had the opportunity to wear coats of various colors, but the darkest I wore was navy blue and you had the opportunity to see on the blog. All the other trenches and coats were lighter shades, but apparently the time had come to fit one black Kensington coat into Mr.M’s closet.

The first question that surely interests everyone: Is it worth investing money in a black Burberry coat? My answer for now is MAYBE, but I say that exclusively because the right answer depends on the customer’s taste. Each of us knows ourselves, our taste and our wardrobe best. Of course, when we enter the store, experts believe that our subconscious is aroused and out of excitement we cannot judge correctly, and that is why sometimes an unnecessary purchase occurs.

Buying a Burberry trench or coat is an investment, it is a fashion piece that can really be worn nicely and for a long time with proper maintenance and it is a thing you can leave for generations to come. I inherited my first Burberry coat from my grandfather and today I keep it carefully and wear it on special occasions because it has a special sentimental value for me.

When the time comes to buy a Burberry trench, it’s a big deal and especially if you are buying a coat for the first time it is very important to buy a “iconic” piece that you can combine with your items from your wardrobe and it is best to buy a coat in your favorite color, without blindly following trends.

What are the basic colors you should think about when buying a Burberry trench or coat? There is no universal answer to this question, but I will share with you my opinion and some of my colleagues and fashion experts with whom I like to exchange opinions. I think that for a start, there are 3 colors by which the Burberry trench or coat is recognizable, and they are: Beige (stone color), Camel (honey color) and Black color.

These three colors are some fashion statement basics, but as I said it all depends on the taste of the owner of the new Burberry trench, maybe that customer thinks that the basic colors in the palette are: red, purple and olive green. Therefore, a person will decide to buy a coat in one of those colors, which Burberry has in its seasonal offer.

Is the length of the coat crucial when making a purchase decision? Of course! I always try to advise people to buy iconic items in classic cuts and lengths and not to blindly follow trends. Trends are changing, one season there are modern coats of casual cuts with puff sleeves quite long length to the ground, after two months or a year later another trend comes.

My most honest advice is to buy a coat of length that suits your body constitution in proportion to your own height. Burberry coats exist in several lengths and I am sure you can always find the ideal coat for yourself.

Due to my height and constitution, I opted for the classic Kensington coat, if you want to remind yourself of the difference between Burberry coat models and coats, read my previous post, where I explained in detail the characteristics of each coat model offered by British fashion house Burberry.

Once again, is it worth investing money in a black coat? If you’re a fan of black and have a lot of black stuff, then I think you know the right answer. If you feel some kind of insecurity while trying on a black coat and reconsider your decision several times, I think it’s best to try a different color. When you buy an expensive thing like a Burberry coat, it is something that must be accompanied by a feeling of fulfillment and security.

The trenches or coats are pieces that are worn over other pieces of clothing, so it is best to look at your favorite pieces of clothing and footwear before buying and evaluate for yourself which are the two or three colors that might come into consideration when buying a coat.

Since new winter “tenants” of black, gray, red, beige and white have recently moved into my wardrobe, I realized that maybe a black trench would be a new challenge for me and that’s why I decided to make my new double-breasted gabardine friend be just a classic black.

Did we fit in nicely at the end? Honestly, I believe we are. After so many years of loyalty to this British brand and because of my personal interest, I have learned a lot about their offer and I am lucky to always be able to show my favorite pieces from the fashion house Burberry on my blog.

In addition to the famous double-breasted trench, another piece of clothing – knitwear was made in Scotland, and that is this beautiful cashmere sweater, which is also the work of the fashion house Burberry.

OUTFIT

Trench: Burberry

Sweater: Burberry

Jeans: Brunello Cucinelli

Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo

I have to admit that I had doubts when choosing the lower part of this outfit and that I was thinking whether to combine classic gray or black trousers or to go with the jeans.

I decided for jeans for the reason that it should be an everyday combination, classic trousers would be too much for an outfit that should be relaxed and I wanted everything to be in some balance.

The shoes themselves are very elegant and they have given a special mark to this fashion combination and together with the trench they have created a real fashion harmony.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special post where together we discovered the beauty of black tones in autumn fashion outfits! See you soon and continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog with the hope that I will take new and interesting photos when my bruises pass! How did you like my outfit today?

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 variant of Corona virus – Lambda 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 charms of the autumn, 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 vaccinated (both doses of the vaccine or even with third Booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. If you are abroad on vacation, I would ask you to respect local COVID-19 laws related to community health.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or a message for me, you can write to me below in the comments. Of course, as always, you can contact me via email or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. See you soon!

With love from Berlin,

Burberry: A Daily Dose of British Iconic Elegance that will make your day!

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another October fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! I hope that these unusual low temperatures, as well as this gloomy and rainy weather did not spoil your mood. Today we will get into the fashion time machine together and discover one of the unusual fashion pieces made by my favorite British fashion house Burberry.

Burberry is one of the most famous traditional British fashion houses that has patented its famous trenches and coats which are also a trademark of this fashion empire. I believe that everyone who has been following my blog for almost 6 years, knows my enthusiasm for this exceptional brand.

There is one interesting fact about big fashion houses that many people do not know or sometimes forget. All creations that marked the collection of a certain year and season are kept in the company’s archives. Because of my job, I had the opportunity to peek into the archival collections of certain fashion brands and I must admit that I am always delighted.

Today I present to you a real gem from the Burberry archive collection. Burberry trenches and coats represent the very top of world fashion fashion and have become iconic fashion classics of today. These coats were created by the founder of the Burberry company – Thomas Burberry more than 100 years ago, inspired by the British heritage, and at the same time introduced elements of urban fashion.

You can find all the classic Burberry coats in the basic 5 models: Legendary Kensington, Westminster, Chelsea, Waterloo and Pimlico. All models were named after city areas in London. What is the difference between these models?

The Kensington – a classic model with a modern cut that easily adapts to any silhouette. The most popular model, which is available in four basic colors: gray, navy blue, honey (camel) and black. Also, this model is made in two lengths.

The Westminster – a model that is oversized and lightly tailored for a draped silhouette. Basic colors: honey (camel) and dark military green (khaki). Also, this model is made in two lengths.

The Chelsea – a model characterized by a slim fit (narrow shape next to the body) with narrow shoulders and a cropped waist. The basic colors are honey and navy blue and it is also available in two lengths.

The Waterloo – A more comfortable cut, a longer model than the classic one with a subtle and relaxed cut, which is ideal for layered clothing. This model is made in three basic colors: chestnut, black and honey – camel and is available in only one length.

The Pimlico is a simple straight cut when adorned with a single-breasted button with a minimalist character and a modern cut. This model is usually made in navy blue, biscuit (biscuit color) and honey-camel color. This model is also available in only one classic length.

I would like to mention that all the listed colors are just classics that are always produced, but the Burberry company is introducing seasonal colors to enrich their offer.

Most Burberry coat models have been made in Castelford, Yorkshire for more than 50 years by hand from gabardine – a revolutionary fabric that Thomas Barberry proudly presented in 1879. Polished, light and practical, beautiful cotton resistant to various types of weather conditions, which has remained in the heart of the Burberry brand to this day.

The classic coat model originated and developed from the basic form of the Tielocken coat, which was patented in 1912 by Thomas Barberi. A simple yet sophisticated unique shape that has adapted over the years and become a recognizable Burberry coat.

Each Burberry trench is special and has its own story – one that is made to last and to write new pages of life chapters together with you. Coats and overcoats are an investment that pays off, it is also a gift for generations to come. Believe me, I know that from my own experience, because I inherited my first Burberry coat from my grandfather’s wardrobe before my blogging career, and today I gladly keep it and wear it on special occasions.

The leather coat that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is special because it is made of the highest quality lambskin, which is especially thin with this model. This Kensington model is specific because it is filtered with the finest fluff and is double-lined with leather. Because of all this, the leather processing had to be different and the leather is significantly thinner than with classic Burberry leather coats.

I am glad that I got this exceptional opportunity to walk the streets of Berlin, this priceless piece that I did my best to enter because all the archive models are kept in runway sizes. Since you all know how often I complain about wider hips and my specific build, you will surely understand my “battle”.

My outfit today was complemented by two things that are very dear to me: the Ématelier watch and the Picard backpack.

You have had the opportunity to see this incredible Ématelier watch in previous posts, which, in addition to faithfully showing the time, is also a real master-piece of art that adorns the hand. My new friend Jaguar from the special collection “Kingdom” is a watch that was handmade in faraway Canada in the main workshop of Ématelier, a brand behind which stands a passionate watch lover, founder Alex Landa.

OUTFIT

Leather Trench: Burberry

Turtleneck Sweater: Brunello Cucinelli

Watch: Ématelier

Jeans: Brunello Cucinelli

Backpack: Picard

Shoes: Roberto Cavalli

This Fall, novelties also arrived from my Picard friends who have supported my adventures around the world for years, and Picard leather friends have never let me down. The quality and design of Picard accessories is amazing and after so many years and carrying pounds of luggage I carry my Picard backpacks in blog posts as well.

Today I present to you model Buddy, my friend from the new Picard collection who is keeping me company in Berlin this season, while we are ready to look forward to the new adventures that await us. This backpack is made of the highest quality leather, a classic design in black.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered some incredible iconic pieces for this winter season! How did you like my outfit today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great outfit in black color?

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

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new variant of Corona virus – Lambda 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 charms of the autumn, 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 vaccinated (both doses of the vaccine or even with third Booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. If you are abroad on vacation, I would ask you to respect local COVID-19 laws related to community health.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or a message for me, you can write to me below in the comments. Of course, as always, you can contact me via email or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. I’ll see you soon!

Skandinavik Fur: Timeless and Iconic Elegance of Fur that is remembered…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and ready for a new fashion adventure. Autumn is a period when we all change the arrangement of clothes in the wardrobe and look forward to warmer pieces such as sweaters, jackets and coats that keep us warm during autumn and winter.

When buying luxurious, timeless, authentic fur, Skandinavik Fur uses the expertise, sophisticated skill and love of the craft that has been passed down from generation to generation, to create a wide range of timeless and luxurious fur products, including clothing, scarves, covers and blankets.

This family company is run by the third generation, located in Siatista, an unusual city of 7,000 inhabitants in northwestern Greece. With 90% of the city’s population involved in fur production, it is a real art that is passed down from generation to generation. The name of the company itself is dedicated to Scandinavia, where most of the skins come from.

The best fur manufacturers are skilled and experienced craftsmen with a sharp eye for detail and a strong sense of aesthetics, devoting numerous hours in hand-making high-quality fur garments. Adapting to the new age and the digital world, this company has perfected its production processes.

Due to its unique holistic approach and with deep respect for natural resources, the Skandinavik Fur company 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 is not exclusively intended for women, but also men’s fur coats can be an interesting accessory that will refresh the wardrobe of every modern man. You’ve probably once 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 fur-lined leather jacket – shearling jackets are slightly more conservative options. You can explore the Skandinavik men’s collection and I am sure you will find something unique for this fashionable winter season.

The key difference in the fur that comes out of the Skandinavik Fur factory is the final products that require a lot of experience, skill, patience and a special manufacturing technique – a time-consuming process that many fur manufacturers have abandoned over time. All Scandinavian fur coats exude a unique and exceptional aesthetic, which is appreciated by the most picky fur lovers. In addition, their sectional fur-making techniques, such as half-skins, chevron patterns, oval patterns and others, create a unique look that can rarely be found in Europe.

When investing in a timeless piece like fur coat, you want to be sure to buy directly from an experienced fur manufacturer who can provide you with the best service after the purchase, transferring knowledge about how to maintain fur products, and at the same time offer high quality products that are professionally made.

The Fur 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 also elegant and has a certain sporty elegance, so it can be worn by people who are oriented to a slightly different sports wardrobe.

Stay warm this winter while keeping a crisp look with the hooded SAGA mink fur coat. If you are looking for a sportive, casual and yet luxurious look then this is the way to go. The mink fur’s high insulation index keeps you toasty warm and you can forget the bulky outerwear when the weather becomes harsh. The straight cut provides extra comfort and a classic timeless look. Handmade with high quality standards and designed to last for years, if not decades with proper care. Made with female SAGA mink skins

Sharp lines, comfort and practicality are some of the basic characteristics of this luxury piece. It can be worn with a white shirt, black pants, an interesting leather belt or you can pair a nice white sweater with jeans. The hood is made of mink on both sides and on the top, because it is suitable for a luxury item like this jacket.

I tried to complete this outfit with classic Brunello Cucinelli pants and a skirt, elegant pieces that fit perfectly into this clothing combination. Gray simple pants and an elegant roll of soft light beige color fit perfectly this time!

OUTFIT

Fur Jacket: SKANDINAVIK Fur

Turtleneck Sweater: Brunello Cucinelli

Trousers: Brunello Cucinelli

Sneakers: Salvatore Ferragamo

Since the whole outfit was in a certain sporty – elegant tone, I decided to wear my new Salvatore Ferragamo made of embossed crocodile leather. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way. Of course, the black color goes great with the colors that predominate in my wardrobe. Salvatore Ferragamo is a famous Italian brand that is at the very top of the fashion industry and has conquered the fashion scene.

After many years of success, he managed to take a high position in the world of fashion and is known for the production of the famous women’s Varina ballet flats and men’s sneakers made of exotic leather.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered some incredible brands from Greece and Italy! How did you like my outfit today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great outfit in brown – grey – black color?

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

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new variant of Corona virus – Lambda 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 charms of the autumn, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

Memorigin: Would you change your Destiny if you owned a Time Machine?

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! As every week, I always try to share some new fashion stories with you and take you on some new fashion adventures. I believe that all of us as children, under the influence of comics and with the appearance of animated films and series, endlessly admired the heroes with super powers.

I will start today’s post with an unusual question: “If you could choose a certain superpower, which one would you choose?

I will give you my answer today, and that is the power of time travel. As a child, I always wondered how interesting it would be to be able to turn back time so that I could do some of my favorite activities again. As I grew, my desires grew with me, some changed, some remained the same. I may not have been able to get the real time machine, but my friends from Memorigin, a watch brand of tourbillon watches from Hong Kong, decided to fulfill one of my children’s wishes in an unusual way.

I may not have discovered the real time machine, but I received one unusual gift that can always remind me of a carefree childhood and when I dreamed that I could manage time. I am sure that all of us need a time machine to correct some of our decisions or to see once again some dear people who still have a special place in our heart, but are not physically present. Yes, one thing is for sure, we all need one time machine…

Let us remind you, Memorigin is one of the most famous Hong Kong watch brands, which was founded in 2011 by Mr. William Schum. The brand specializes in tourbillon watches, a mechanism that is often associated with luxury and prestigious Swiss watch brands. This mechanism is produced in only a few factories around the world. The prices of watches with this mechanism can range up to dizzying millions and billions of euros or dollars, depending on the brand.

The founder of the Memorigin brand decided that there is a possibility to produce a quality middle-class tourbillon, which will sell directly to the growing Chinese watch market and thus reach other world markets.

Tourbillon watches made by the Memorigin brand are unique because they combine Chinese and Western design elements. At the founding of Memorigin, Mr. Schum stated that he wanted to create watches that possessed “Swiss precision with Chinese characteristics and oriental spirit.”

Certain watch models from limited special art collections are often designed by the Memorigin brand in collaboration with well-known Hong Kong watch collectors. Memorigin has always shown interest in becoming a custom-made watch brand, not a mass-produced one.

The model that complemented my outfit today is the Memorigin watch from the special collection “The Time Machine Series“. This model is adorned with a timeless gold-plated rose steel case with a white dial without much detail, nurturing the aesthetics of simplicity and elegance. A luxurious crocodile bracelet emphasizes the elegance of this unusual watch. This watch is an interesting masterpiece, made for all lovers of true beauty and aesthetics that support the “laws of elegance”.

The designer of this exceptional collection of watches is Mark Lui, a watchmaker who believes that precision in time is the only gift that only people who are active in creating their own time can understand. Memorigin brand has really tried to bring every detail to perfection, such as work on smaller dials, the color of the crown, which has a specific design so that people with different tastes understand the value of time in their own unique way. The guiding idea for the creator of this amazing collection was one simple sentence: “Only time has the same value for different people.”

I will share with you some more technical information that will be useful to you, if you decide for this model of Memorigin watch:

Case Material: Stainless steel case

The Stenströms long-sleeved T-shirt made of the highest quality merino wool has a classic round neckline with navy-white stripes. An ideal piece for everyday casual outfits, especially since navy blue and white color easily fit with many colors. This t-shirt is made in knitted ribs in the cuffs and on the hem as well.

I decided to show you how you can wear this shirt in occasions that do not require a strictly formal way of dressing, but if you want to achieve a more elegant look, you can wear this shirt on classic navy blue or white-beige pants.

If you want to know more information about this interesting brand from Sweden, read my previous post at this link.

Since the whole outfit was in a certain everyday casual-elegant street style vibe, I decided to wear my new Louis Leeman python sneakers. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way. Of course, the white color goes great with my items in the wardrobe. Louis Leeman is an Italian brand that conquered the fashion scene in a short time and managed to take a high position in the world of fashion.

Stenströms: Swedish Style, Quality and Comfort in every detail!

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I believe that you are ready to slowly bring the summer season to an end and start preparations for autumn season. No matter how many years I have been waiting for new fashion trends together with you, I always have a feeling that I am doing everything for the first time.

Today I decided to present you an unusual Swedish brand that is known for its exceptional quality and comfort that can be noticed at the first touch when you see a piece of their incredible knitwear and shirts. Meet Stenströms, a brand that has been providing uncompromising quality for more than 120 years…

This unusual fashion story began in 1899 when the Swedish tailor August Stenstrom faced a large number of orders. His reputation as an exceptional master of shirt making spread throughout the city at the speed of light. All the elegantly dressed men in Helsingborg wanted to own at least one of his masterpieces, and it was extremely difficult for Mr. Stenstrom to meet the needs of the market with the existing production capacities.

To meet the needs of his sophisticated clients, he decided to build a shirt factory. Under the strict supervision of Stenstroms, a new possibility of producing a larger number of quality shirts opened up.

Over time, his business flourished, and the good word about quality shirts spread far beyond the borders of Sweden. Over time, more and more people discovered Stenstrom’s clothes, like the demanding captains who sailed the port of Helsingborg. Returning to their countries dressed in elegant Stanstroms clothes, they unconsciously helped it become a global brand.

Stenstroms is still internationally known for its traditional quality. Using only the best fabrics and fashion details, the Stenströms brand has become synonymous with classic and modern clothing. The perfect sense of comfort, quality and detail based on 120 years of sustainable traditional craftsmanship.

All garments that leave the doors of the Stenströms factory pay tribute to the integrity and knowledge of the tailor August Stenström. Each piece made is made with a lot of dedication in accordance with uncompromising quality standards. Only the finest fabrics in the world are used in the production process, and every detail in the creation of the design is shaped to perfection.

Innovative production combined with the classic way of making and new ideas provides a long-term result that all traditional fashion brands strive for, which have two main goals: making clothes that can beat time and use (classics), as well as nurturing tradition while adapting to new trends.

My outfit today consists of pieces from the new Stenströms collection, such as a vest and a cashmere sweater. Whatever the occasion, you can fit these fashion pieces very easily and simply. It’s an easy way to show off sporty elegance regardless of the season. You can wear the sweater over a shirt in the appropriate color for a slightly more formal look, or pair it with jeans for everyday style, as I did today.

I believe that each of us always tries to keep our favorite cashmere pieces as new and to try to keep our favorite sweaters as new with some of our little tricks. The Stenströms brand has great products to help you properly reflect cashmere pieces as new.

In the picture above you can see a special brush with a wooden handle that will help you remove those uninvited guests – small puffs, which can occur when wearing coats and jackets in the right way and not damage the material with the possibility of smoothing the surface of the material. thinning and does not lead to cracking either. Also in their offer you can find shampoo for washing cashmere products that you can use for hand or machine washing.

Today’s and previous summer outfits as well was completed by a watch from the Akylon collection of the art Swiss brand MUSE, which you had the opportunity to meet in one of the previous posts.

The case is made of 100% titanium in the color of rose gold, while the dial is made of aventurine, a type of quartz that is characterized by its transparency and the presence of mineral impurities in the form of platinum that give it a shimmering or shining effect called aventurescence.

MUSE watches are for all art lovers with refined taste and a sense of aesthetics. The basic idea of the founders of the MUSE brand was to re-examine and present the representation of time through an artistic prism. Mr. Robert and Mr. Leuba replaced the traditional hands, so the hours, minutes and seconds are shown in special art forms inspired by elements of nature and architecture.

MUSE dials are a moving art, time passes and different formations and shapes are made. Watches have become real small pieces of art today, only technology and inspiration have made it possible to enjoy the beauty of shapes that change on the MUSE dial every minute.

The MUSE brand has artistic limited watches that are classified into 6 special collections: Akylon, Kagura, Stella, Stella-S, Tanoura and Kyrian.

All MUSE watches are available in two sizes: 37 and 44 mm. The hexagonal shape of the MUSE watch case is very common and their watches are made of titanium. Titanium, as a material, is not only extremely light, but also very useful due to its resistance to corrosion and scratches. In addition, titanium is considered hypoallergenic, which is an ideal material for all those fans of watches who are looking for nickel-free watches that cause allergic reactions.

If you are looking for a watch for everyday use with great artistic value, MUSE watches are the ideal choice for you.

My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze brown-gold color. The bracelet is made of Elaphe water snake skin, which does not belong to the protected species.

For all additional information and news about MUSE watches, you can follow them on their official Facebook page and Instagram profile.

Since the whole outfit was in a certain sporty – elegant tone, I decided to wear my new Jacob Cohen pony fur sneakers. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way. Of course, the camel color goes great with the colors that predominate in my wardrobe.

Jacob Cohen is an Italian brand that conquered the fashion scene in a short time and managed to occupy a high position in the world of fashion and is known for the production of famous jeans that have a recognizable detail – “pony hair plate” with the brand logo and name.

Fashion Diaries: Appreciate the Little Things in Life…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure. The health situation in the world and in Europe has changed significantly due to the spread of the new variant of Corona virus – Lambda, I am sure you are keeping and adhering to the health regulations related to the COVID-19 virus.

The current situation reminds us that life is made up of little things that can do a lot and brighten our moment, especially during this current health situation. I am one of those people who find it important to enjoy every moment because life is just one time screenplay.

I honestly don’t know almost a person, who doesn’t like warm weather and enjoying the charms of summer. In addition to nice and sunny weather, we can’t wait for our skin to feel the sun and get as healthy and tan as possible, but it is also important how we will look from the other “fashion” side.

My first association with summer is definitely navy blue, white and red, without which I can’t spend the summer. Famous international brands have presented interesting fashion collections this summer season, the pieces of which we like to see on the covers of numerous fashion magazines or in the recommendations of my dear colleagues, fashion influencers.

Of course, this summer outfit is also inspired by the street fashion of Italy, which sometimes likes to combine incompatible pieces. Honestly, when I got these sneakers, I was thrilled because I’m a big fan of things that sparkle, I also love patent leather shoes because of the shine and easy way of maintenance.

This polo T-shirt you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is a part of the new summer collection of the Italian fashion house SVEVO Parma, a family brand that you had the opportunity to meet on my blog through summer fashion stories.

This incredible fashion story began in Bari, when Mr. Nicola Somma opened a chain of knitwear stores for men and women, without any kind of knowledge that he started the “fashion wheel” of an Italian company that still focuses on the values of quality and authenticity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Memorigin is a Hong Kong watch brand founded in 2011 by Mr. William Schum. The brand specializes in tourbillon watches, a mechanism that is often associated with luxury Swiss watch brands. This mechanism is produced in only a few factories around the world. The prices of watches with this mechanism range from quite high prices with 5 or 6 zeros, depending on the watch brand.

The founder of the Memorigin brand explored a possibility to produce a quality middle-class tourbillon, which will sell directly to the growing Chinese watch market and thus reach worldwide market.

Tourbillon watches made by the Memorigin brand are unique because they combine Chinese and Western design elements. At the moment of founding Memorigin, Mr. Schum stated that he wanted to create watches that possessed “Swiss precision with Chinese characteristics and oriental spirit.”

Certain watch models from limited special art collections are often designed by the Memorigin team in collaboration with well-known Hong Kong watch collectors. Memorigin has always shown interest in becoming a custom-made watch brand, not a mass-produced one.

The model that complemented my outfit today is the Memorigin watch from the special collection “Time Machine Series“. This model is adorned with a timeless gold-plated rose steel case with a white dial without much detail, nurturing the aesthetics of simplicity and elegance. A luxurious crocodile bracelet emphasizes the elegance of this unusual watch. This watch is an interesting masterpiece, made for all lovers of true beauty and aesthetics that support the “laws of elegance”.

The designer of this exceptional collection of watches is Mark Lui, a watchmaker who believes that precision in time is the only gift that only people who are active in creating their own time can understand. Memorigin brand has really tried to bring every detail to perfection, such as designed work on smaller dials, the color of the crown, which has a specific design so that people with different tastes understand the value of time in their own unique way. The guiding idea for the creator of this amazing collection was one simple sentence: “Only time has the same value for different people.”

Watch: MEMORIGIN

Jeans: Brunello Cucinelli

Sneakers: Louis Leeman

The sneakers you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are a masterpiece of the Italian shoe designer Louis Leeman, an artist who laid some of the foundations of art in shoemaking. If you want to have the best sneakers, you have to look very carefully at how they are made. The shoe with the “Made in Italy” label could be produced in other countries, and only the last step would be performed in Italy.

Louis Leeman is a brand where all the manufacturing processes – from design to leather cutting to shoe making, take place in Veneto, one in the region of Italy.

When I posted these shoes on social media a few days ago, most people were thrilled with the shine and glamor that these sneakers exude because the crystals left no one indifferent. Swarovski crystals are always interesting and are present in almost all aspects of the fashion industry and the luxury goods industry because these “bright stars” are simply impossible to get around!

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered the beauty and splendor of summer season together! See you soon during August and continue our fashion story about the Italian brand Tod’s on the Mr.M blog! How did you like my outfit today?
