ZEGNA: The Beauty of the Refined Elegance of Linen…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FAY: Italian Style combining Tradition with Quality…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. We start today’s fashion adventure with new friends of Mr.M blog – FAY. Maybe this brand sounds unfamiliar to you, but if I mention the Tod’s brand, then many of you will recognize the brand because you had the opportunity to get to know this luxury Italian brand better over the past years on the Mr.M blog.

Tod’s S.p.A. is a company specializing in the production of footwear, clothing and fashion accessories with its brands Tod’s, Hogan, Fay and Roger Vivier. This fashion story is the result of the work and effort of the Della Valle family.

The history of the brand dates back to the early 1980s in the USA, when Diego and Andrea Della Valle discovered work jackets worn by the Maine fire department. Models of legendary jackets forged in the USA, cooled in fashionable Italy, Realizing the potential, they took over the Fay brand, a specialized manufacturer of technical clothing for fishermen and firefighters, bringing it to Italy with a very clear idea: to adapt work-wear to the urban environment.

Fay started its fashion story as a menswear brand, but along the way experienced a magical evolution in the womenswear market, winning the hearts of women around the world who always know how to appreciate a soft feminine cut, as well as the ability to adapt to any body type without losing sight of quality and class .

Fay work jackets became a great solution for city life, and soon rose to cult status in capitals around the world: “Fay 4 Ganci“. The constantly reworked iconic jacket is now followed by a clothing line, made recognizable by its innovative materials and timeless authentic Italian outerwear features. “Gancio” – a cult and easily recognizable symbol of the world of work-wear – expresses an always current attitude to the outdoors. It takes pride of place in durable, versatile and timeless clothing.

Fay Archive – The brand’s journey began in 2019, fusing the true spirit of American work-wear with innate Italian style. The Fay Archive goes back to Fay’s DNA, celebrating her origins and expanding them to suit every conceivable type of adventure, from city life to the great outdoors.

The fashion group Tod’s is known for its national and international socially responsible projects of sustainable development. One of the most famous projects is “Tod’s for the Colosseum” – the restoration of the Colosseum, a symbol of Italian history.

The intervention plan for the restoration of the Colosseum is a project commissioned by the Delegate Commissioner for the Archaeological Areas of Rome and Ostia Antica, in collaboration with the Special Group for the Protection of the Colosseum and the Archaeological Area of Rome, and was implemented thanks to the selfless support of Tod’s Group. The first phase of the works has been completed and included the renovation of the northern and southern facades, covering an area of about 13,300 square meters and the replacement of the arch closing system with the construction of new gates.

The renovation plan will continue with the renovation of the basement of the Colosseum, the standardization and implementation of the system and the construction of a service center that enables the execution of additional support activities for visitors to this cultural monument.

The second phase of the works, which began in December 2018, under the leadership of the new autonomous institute Parco Archeologico del Colosseo, included the area of the hypogea, a “monument within a monument” a kind of amphitheater that is located below the arena and was invisible to spectators in ancient times . More than 80 people participated in the restoration work, including archaeologists, restorers, architects, engineers and other experts. At the end of the works, a 160-meter-long promenade was installed, accessible to all visitors, which gave visitors the opportunity to see a hitherto unexplored part of the Colosseum that was not feasible before.

Tod’s as a brand stood out for its quality leather and models that come from artisanal shoemakers. Mr. Diego Della Valle’s idea was to create a shoe suitable for both formal and informal occasions, with a casual, comfortable, simple but refined taste. On the other hand, FAY stood out with its refined sports elegance and jackets that the whole world loved.

Today, the FAY brand represents the pinnacle of Italian fashion and, in addition to work jackets, produces clothing, knitwear and fashion accessories that have found their place in the hearts of celebrities across Hollywood. My outfit today is decorated with a yellow quilted jacket, a summer knitted T-shirt and trousers from the new FAY’s SS24 collection. The jacket is a classic timeless model and can always be found in the FAY collection.

Sneakers: Lanvin via MYTHERESA Men

Lanvin is a French luxury fashion house based in Paris. Founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, it is the oldest French fashion house still in operation. Since 2018, it has been a subsidiary of the Lanvin Group based in Shanghai. The House of Lanvin was named after its founder Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. Lanvin was founded in 1867 and opened its first store in rue du Marche Saint Honore in 1885.

Lanvin made clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac, which began to attract the attention of many wealthy people, who were looking for creations for their children. Soon Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, who were included in the clientele of her new boutique on rue Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris. In 1909, Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture, marking her formal status as a couturier. The Lanvin logo was inspired by a photograph taken of Jeanne Lanvin while attending a ball with her daughter in 1907. As Albert Elbaz said, “It is not a lion and it is not a horse. It’s mother and daughter, I find the logo very emotional.” Since 1923, the Lanvin empire has included a paint factory in Nanterre.

When Lanvin died in 1946, ownership of the company passed to her daughter Marguerite, who shared the management of the company from 1942 with a cousin, then an expert in the fashion industry. Since Marie-Blanche de Polignac was childless when she died in 1958, ownership of the House of Lanvin went to a cousin, Yves Lanvin. From the mid-1960s until the takeover by L’Oreal in 1996, Lanvin was led by Bernard Lanvin. The export department was in the original factory in Nanterre where all the perfumes were produced and bottled. The administrative seat was in Paris. In 1979, Lanvin bought its independence from Squibb USA and Paris organized a major PR promotional tour in the United States that same year. Midland Bank bought a stake in the company from the family in March 1989 and hired Leon Bressler to restore the firm’s faded image. However, in February 1990, Midland folded and sold Lanvin to Orcofa, a French holding company run by the Vuitton family.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see their new model of Bumper sneakers that are completely made in white leather. This model exists in various variations and combinations of materials and each sneaker is unique and unusual.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of another spring fashion story, where together we discovered the beauty and splendor of Italian fashion with the cult fashion house FAY, the elegance and prestige of sports elegance with the luxurious French brand Lanvin in collaboration with the luxury online shopping platform MYTHERESA Men, partners with whom fashion stories are a real adventure.

Roberto Cavalli: A Symbol of Enchanting Casual Sporty Elegance…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. We start today’s fashion adventure with old friends of the Mr.M blog – Roberto Cavalli. I am sure that there is no person in the world, regardless of whether he knows the world of fashion, but this iconic Italian fashion house is well known to everyone. It is a brand that you simply cannot be indifferent to, especially because of its impressive creations that have conquered the very top of the world fashion scene for decades.

Roberto Cavalli is a famous Italian luxury fashion company founded by designer Roberto Cavalli in Osmannore, Florence, during the 1970s. This brand has become famous in the fashion world for its colorful animal prints on leather and textiles. Roberto Cavalli produces and sells haute couture – a first line consisting of limited runway models, ready-to-wear products that are divided into several fashion lines, as well as fashion accessories, including handbags, glasses, watches, shoes, perfumes and jewelry. The company also develops an interior design program for high-end buildings and hotels.

Mr. Roberto Cavalli studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. His grandfather was a prominent painter of the Macchiaioli group. His fashion career began in the 1960s. Working in his own silk printing press, he began to apply a new painting technique to fully made garments, which later resulted in garment dyeing techniques. During the 1970s, he continued to experiment with other materials, mainly leather.

Mr. Cavali’s debut collection was held in Paris in 1970, where he proudly displayed his leather patchwork designs, created in collaboration with Mario Valentino. In 1972, he presented his patchwork designs applied to jeans at the first Roberto Cavalli women’s collection show at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the main pret-a-porter event in Italy at the time. His work has attracted many global fashion houses, including Hermès, Pierre Cardin, Krizia and Emilio Pucci.

You must be wondering what the Patchwork technique is? Patchwork is a very interesting technique that has been known since ancient times. The oldest found patchwork works date back to the ancient Chinese civilization, and traces of such works were found in the famous Egyptian tombs.

Fans of this technique also call it “painting with rags”, and the word itself is of English origin and is composed of two words, patch-rag, and work-rad. Patchwork is a special technique of creative sewing, where different fabrics are combined with certain patterns and create decorative units. By combining materials of different geometric shapes, textures, colors, patterns and joining them together, you can make things for the home like bedspreads, cushions, rugs, refresh your furniture, make or refresh old fashion pieces and the like.

The basic way of working with patchwork is to cut and join different shapes and wholes. However, what should be emphasized is that with this technique, precision in work is very important. Each piece of patchwork fabric that is cut must be precisely measured and cut so that there are no mistakes and omissions in the further work.

The 1994 collection at Milan Fashion Week staged a new vision of the Cavalli woman: playful tiger and wild animal motifs applied to jeans, printed clothing, embroidered fur and long, sumptuous dresses that elegantly revealed the woman’s body. Animal print has become a recognizable element of the Italian fashion house Cavalli. Later, sandblasted denim came out and the fashion house was the first to show lycra stretch jeans.

New clothing lines were launched on the market: Just Cavalli, Angels & Devils (renamed Roberto Cavalli Junior) and Class Cavalli. The first Roberto Cavalli mono-brand boutique was opened in Venice in 1996. At the end of 2001, the brand was distributed in more than 30 countries, including the United States, Asia and Russia.

In celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2010, Roberto Cavalli fashion house presented an exclusive show collection in Paris, which included most of its iconic dresses for which the brand has become recognizable. In recent years, under the leadership of Roberto Cavalli, the new interior design division Roberto Cavalli Home debuted at the 2012 Salone del Mobile.

The jacket you have the opportunity to see in today’s fashion story is a rebellious fashion response to current fashion trends. This runway piece, masterpiece is crafted from the finest reindeer leather with an arctic fox collar (which I took off for the purpose of taking pictures this time) from the latest Autumn/Winter collection.

The Roberto Cavalli Group’s fashion world includes the following brand lines:

  • Roberto Cavalli: a historic collection of evening dresses. This is the first line of the brand and the new era has introduced everyday clothing and accessories, including shoes, handbags, leather goods and jewelry.
  • Just Cavalli: brand launched in 1998, this is a more affordable line compared to haute couture lines.
  • Cavalli Class: a line of clothing and fashion accessories for women and men.
  • Roberto Cavalli Junior: the brand’s line for boys and girls.
  • Roberto Cavalli Home: officially presented in 2012 at the Salone del Mobile di Milano, the interior collections were developed in collaboration with Made in Italy partners. Home furnishing line: a line of furniture, wallpaper, tiles, home textiles, lamps and accessories made of Made in Murano glasses.

If you want to stay updated and find out what the Roberto Cavalli brand has in store for the new fashion season, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

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

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

In today’s post you have the chance to see a special item, a turtleneck sweater from the latest men’s Loro Piana Autumn-Winter 2023/24 collection, which is just a small piece of my favorites this season due to their signature elegance and my love for neutral colors. Made from 100% cashmere, this beige turtleneck sweater is perfect for the man who pays attention to details and leaves nothing to chance.

This elegant cashmere turtleneck in beige color, is perfect for all occasions and extremely easy to match with other colors. If you want to stay updated and find out which pieces the Loro Piana brand has in its offer, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

OUTFIT

Jacket: Roberto Cavalli

Turtleneck sweater: Loro Piana

Jeans: Jacob Cohën

Boots: Johnstons of Elgin x Joseph Cheaney

I made an effort to complete this outfit with the famous Jacob Cohën jeans, which perfectly fit into this outfit. Classic jeans are always the best and absolutely foolproof choice when it comes to spring fashion for men.

The story of the Jacob Cohën brand begins with a man who believed in one dream! The fashion empire that opened its doors in 1985, guided by the intuition of Tato Bardelle, achieved thanks to the creative genius of his son Nicola Bardelle in the early 2000s, is divided and continued today by the creative direction of his wife Jennifer Tommasi-Bardelle.

The brand was originally conceived as a luxury denim collection handmade in Italy, where this material was first proposed as a status symbol in history, thus anticipating the concept of a casual everyday look that will soon become “mandatory” style.

Jacob Cohën is one of the brands that has always continuously invested in modernization of production and market research, in order to provide its customers with exclusive quality and exceptional comfort.

Today, Jacob Cohën has become a reference point for everyday luxury understood as a way of thinking, living and dressing. If you want to understand the essence of the brand, Jacob Cohën represents the cult of luxury denim, which means a simple way of life.

The boots that served as inspiration for today’s outfit were handmade in the workshop of the famous British shoemaker Joseph Cheaney, who in collaboration with Johnstons of Elgin created a special collection of shoes. It was a great pleasure for me to walk in these unusual boots that have a palette of colors that are current this season: dark brown, drape and cognac.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of another spring fashion story, where together we discovered the beauty and splendor of Italian fashion with the iconic fashion house Roberto Cavalli, elegance and prestige with the luxury Italian brand Loro Piana, practical everyday fashion with the denim fashion brand Jacob Cohën , partners with whom fashion stories are a real adventure. I sincerely hope you got some inspiration for your ideal spring outfit!

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: GEMMI, Beauty of Fur Casual Elegance…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my new fashion story on the pages of the Mr.M blog. I’m really glad that you like my take on fashion and that I inspire many women in their prime to change their minds and bring some novelty into their lives.

Today I will present to you one of my favorite fur pieces that you have had the opportunity to see this season on the Mr.M blog. Gemmi is a new partner of Mr.M blog, a luxury brand of jackets and coats from Finland. All Gemmi pieces are painstakingly crafted in the Gemmi factory in Finland with the help of skilled and experienced craftsmen and tailors. The materials they use are natural and sustainable and selected for their quality characteristics and responsible production.

How did the Gemmi brand come about? The brand was born out of necessity due to extremely harsh winters in the north of Europe. The history of the Gemmi brand dates back to the early 70s when a factory was built in the small town of Loviisa, located in southern Finland. The vision of the founder of the contemporary Gemmi fur brand got a new life in 2014. I am truly impressed by the work of Ms. Susanne Stenfors and her team who put a lot of love and effort into making Gemmi products and are truly dedicated to each client individually. Gemmi has always created its own unique style of modern fur coats. Their team saw an opportunity to develop a line of fur products that were already well designed, high quality, functional and responsibly made, into a contemporary brand of fur jackets and coats with clearer influences from the Nordic design tradition.

Gemmi is a family company continuing the long tradition of clothing and fur production in Finland. Their fur factory is one of the few textile and fur factories in the Nordic countries, where the right attitude and proper clothing are needed to get through the long and dark winters. In addition, they equally need some kind of outerwear during all seasons. All Gemmi products are designed and handcrafted in Finland. The Gemmi team found inspiration for the new collections in timeless design archives and experimented with different materials to create new contemporary pieces for all four seasons.

OUTFIT

Wig: Ellen Wille

Fur Coat: GEMMI

Gloves: Artigiano Del Guanto

Turtleneck Sweater: Max Mara

Jeans: ESCADA

Sneakers: Max Mara

Gemmi various collections uphold the tradition of Finnish design aesthetics, combined with functionality and high-quality materials. The Gemmi team is constantly searching for new natural and sustainable materials suitable for making luxury outerwear. One of the latest discoveries is the Finnish tweed fabric produced by Saimaa Wool, using wool from Nordic sheep. This beautiful tweed fabric in striking colors complements Gemma’s timeless, classic design. Gemmi models are made for everyday use, and for weather and wind protection, they generally use wind and water resistant fabrics.

Windbreakers are now increasingly made from recycled polyester or nylon and the quality of these more sustainable technical fabrics is improving. Gemmi is known for lightweight, reversible fur coats, jackets and vests, which on the one hand look like a functional coat made of technical fabric, but when the reverse is a luxurious fox fur coat, jacket or vest. Gemmi fur jackets and coats are made from fur skins obtained at Saga Furs auctions from Finnish certified and regulated farmers. In this way, we know the origin of the materials used in the production of the fur coat.

In addition to making new fur coats, Gemmi can also revive your old ones and create new fashion masterpieces. I believe that through my previous fur fashion stories, you have become familiar with a number of fur facts that the most important thing to know is that natural fur is a long-lasting, warm material. Many of us have old jackets and coats made of fur that are hanging unused in our wardrobes, and this fact has inspired the Gemmi team to create a new service that will give old fur coats the opportunity to become new fur-lined parkas. This is a win-win combination that provides mutual benefits for many customers who use beautiful fur in a new form and for the Gemmi team a new opportunity because they can provide work for their expert team.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see a Reversible Fox Fur Coat in wonderful Bark color that is designed to be an oversized fit, but at the same time is the most comfortable jacket you will ever wear. The jacket is extremely warm and light. The hood and sleeves have a light padded lining. The jacket is designed and made in Finland. I must mention that Gemmi has limited stock, in order to minimize the level of unsold jackets and coats. Fur coats, jackets and vests ordered through the Gemmi online store are generally made to order and delivered within 2-3 weeks, assuming the Gemmi team has the required material in stock.

How can you buy Gemmi products? The Gemmi flagship store is located in the heart of downtown Helsinki, where you can experience the beauty of their fur jackets and coats in live. On the other hand, in the comfort of your home, you can use the services of the Gemmi online store, which has the widest selection of Gemmi products. Gemmi products can also be found in some stores in northern Finland and high-end department stores, fashion boutiques and fur shops in many countries in Europe and around the world.

If you want to stay updated and find out what all the novelties Gemmi has in offer for us this winter fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

I am happy to have the opportunity to introduce you to the new friends of the Mr.M blog who have succeeded in bringing together exquisite luxury artisan crafts, Italian passion and exquisite Neapolitan craftsmanship. Artigiano del Guanto (ADG) is an artisan glove workshop active in the northern part of Naples, founded by Giovanni Ricciardiello, an experienced glove maker for 10 decades, a historical exponent of the tradition of the ancient Neapolitan glove makers. A few years ago, in 2016 to be precise, the laboratory was renovated and with it the brand was born: Artigiano Del Guanto.

Today, Artigiano Del Guanto is no longer a “simple” workshop of artisan gloves, but a family company in which the new generation of heirs Francesco, Mimmo and Flora, Giovanni’s children stand out, who, with the indispensable presence of their father, in addition to the brand, renewed the production chain with a completely new styles and models, connected with new modern communication channels, in order to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding customer. Over the years, the Artigiano Del Guanto collections have attracted the attention of very prestigious international high fashion brands such as Giorgio Armani, MaxMara, Coccinelle and Pinko, with whom today the Ricciardiello family’s ADG artisan glove laboratory proudly collaborates as an official manufacturer.

What does a working day look like at the Artigiano Del Guanto craft workshop? The working day starts early in the morning between 6:30 and 7 am, when the doors of the ADG workshop are already open. The first word that rings out in the craft workshop is “Good morning”. At 07:30 the first morning coffee is already ready and at 08:00 the working day begins. The first bucket of leather softening water is already full and can be found under the marble counter that will soon be almost 45 years old.

The first stage of processing is in moistening the leather by wrapping it in cloth, previously immersed in a bucket of water for a few seconds, then we move on to laying the leather on the counter, strictly manual work, adopting the right criteria. Then, with the help of scissors, a leather rectangle is formed. From here, the technical processing begins, with the splitting of the leather, it begins to take the form of a glove. Once the desired shape has been obtained, the embroidery itinerary is followed, which through small pictures, blades, curved cuts and various molds bring the holes, leather stitching, weaving, straps, pleats to life.

Are we done making the glove? No, there’s still a lot to do! Now we are in the delicate stage of the seam, entrusted to a highly qualified staff who has been doing this work for about 35 years. Glove production machines differ depending on the type of seam. During the final stage of processing, the passion and frugality of those who sew exclusively by hand and create small works of art are not neglected, as someone described years ago.

After sewing, we move on to the “shocking” phase, that is, to the exact control of the seams, which precedes the installation. The coating is done using special wooden hands on which the coating is placed. Small, traditional gestures of our workshop of handmade gloves… A light veil of vegetable glue is spread over the fingertips, and then the glove is inserted. To make sure the lining is stuck, the glove is placed on the thermal hand which will increase its adhesion. The final stages of production continue with work that can be done by hand or by machine and we are almost at the end of the line in fact only two stops short! Handmade gloves are ‘shown’, or ironed on thermal hands, bonded with cotton and undergo a final inspection, before passing through to destination packaging.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you unusual gloves that are made of the finest lambskin. M.Smithson (GKJ-9456) is a women’s model of gloves with Swarovski stones, made of lambskin. The model is distinguished by the application of Swarovski stones on the back of the gloves and a small leather flap. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

During this winter season, together we will discover the beauty of luxury artisanal craftsmanship, Italian passion and the extraordinary Neapolitan craftsmanship of Artigiano Del Guanto. If you want to stay updated and find out what new gloves models Artigiano Del Guanto has to offer us this winter fashion season, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you some fashion pieces from my favorite Italian brand – Max Mara. Max Mara is a world famous Italian fashion brand. It was founded in 1951 in Reggio Emilia by Mr. Achille Maramotti. This legendary brand sponsors and awards the Max Mara Women’s Art Award. Achille Maramotti began creating wardrobes in 1947, and officially founded the Max Mara fashion house in 1951. How did the brand name come about?

The second word of the brand – “Mara” was derived from Mr. Maramotti surname, while “Max” referred to Count Max, a local legend, who was rarely sober, but always so classy and stylish! Mr. Maramotti was one of the first to see that the future of women’s fashion lay in the mass production of designer quality clothing. He also wanted to put his Max Mara brand at the top in front of the names of individual designers, although he hired Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Dolce & Gabbana, Narciso Rodriguez and Anne Marie Beretta. The company is still in the hands of the family and is one of the best family fashion businesses in the world.

The Max Mara group has 35 brands in its fashion empire, of which the Max Mara brand remains the heart of the company to this day. Other brands include Sportmax, Sportmax Code, Weekend Max Mara, Marella, Pennyblack, iBlues, MAX&Co. and Marina Rinaldi. An interesting information is that Marina Rinaldi is a brand founded in 1980 and named after the greatmother of Mr. Maramotti.

Max Mara is my favorite brand because it absolutely meets my criteria when it comes to wardrobe, which are: quality, interesting models and cuts, good selection of materials, as well as fine processing of materials. Today I decided to show you two iconic pieces: a timeless turtleneck sweater and unusual sneakers with mink fur details. The turtleneck sweater is made of the finest cashmere with metal details.

The sneakers are really unusual because they are made of a combination of cashmere and mink fur details. The color of these sneakers is amazing live and because of the neutrality of the pastel color, these sneakers go perfectly with any outfit! In a future post I will try to style them with a Max Mara bag and a coat that I got from my dear friends from Max Mara.

I have always admired women with longer and well-groomed hair, but unfortunately I have had short hair all my life, but with the help of Ellen Wille wigs (supllied by Perike In) I managed to fulfill my long-term dream and I am very happy about it. Wigs have become a trend today, because wearing a wig opens up a number of new possibilities for you to experiment and change yourself, without having to make any permanent changes to your natural hair.

Also in addition to the aesthetic transformation, wigs can provide you with good protection from frequent treatment and heat, keeping your natural hair healthy. The history of Ellen Wille began with a suitcase full of ideas. Ellen Wille is a self-made hair designer who built a global brand from a small company. After completing her studies in Paris, the company was established in 1967. The corporate philosophy is shaped by commitment to the highest quality, and this is what the Ellen Wille name stands for.

For over 50 years, Ellen Wille designs have been inspired by international fashion trends. Her passion for wig perfection is evident – she guides every meticulous detail and each Ellen Wille wig is unique. All aspects of an individual style, from the hair fiber to the coloring to the cap design, is about ensuring the most beautiful look, natural movement and comfortable fit. Ellen remains involved in every detail of design, from the first idea, to the finishing touches of each style.

The wig you see on me today is the Kimera Deluxe wig, a champagne color from the Stimulate collection that has soft and gentle layers that make this mid-length style absolutely perfect. This wig is designed to ensure a tight and secure fit for the woman wearing it. This wig is of medium length and is made of the highest quality synthetic fibers.

When someone thinks of having to wear a wig, most people get scared thinking that it will take too much time to maintain them. Fortunately, that is not the case at all. Ellen Wille wigs are very easy to maintain and there are many products that will make them last a long time and look the same as when you bought them.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. See you soon with some new and more interesting fashion stories. I will try not to take long breaks and I hope you understand the reason for my unexpected absence after failed cosmetic surgery in Egypt, but there will be time to make up for everything and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Special note: All my photos from today’s post have been additionally and specially processed to meet the expectations of blog friends, as well as the readers themselves while respecting the aesthetics and guidelines of fashion photography. Unfortunately, the face and neck lifting operations did not go well and due to the negligence of the medical team from Egypt, I suffered serious aesthetic and health consequences. In agreement with my legal team, I will soon tell you the whole story so that you will fully understand the reason for my long absence from the blog, because you deserve to know the truth and all the details.

Best Regards,

Rose

The Limitato brand nurtures a vision of unique visual art to iconic moments in music history, some of the prints come from famous artists, photographers or historical archives.

The brand name Limitato is inspired by the concept of “limited edition” and aptly sums up the brand’s unique concept, which is that a garment can become a kind of wearable fine art. By creating garments with high-quality prints of graphic and photographic art, the Limitato team aims to make art more accessible while also creating some seriously urban and quirky clothing with a unique and distinct aesthetic.

The great success of the Pitti Uomo platform helped launch the Limitato brand onto the international fashion scene. Over the course of one season, Limitato brand products went from being stocked in five stores to 150, and by the time the Spring/Summer 2018 collection was released, Limitato had become a true fashion icon.

On one occasion Ms. Sara Dawood stated: “For me the process never stops, the design process is constant, it is constant everywhere.

MEROË is on a mission of rational consumption, which means that the brand is working to change the perspective of the industry from fast to slow fashion, so that the MEROË brand will provide pieces that can be worn and loved for longer.

BOMBERG is an independent Swiss watch brand that has become very popular in a short time due to its unusual watches that have a special design and character that is not for everyone. The BOMBERG brand name itself came naturally, and the “Berg” element is a sign for the famous mountain. If you identify as a rebellious soul and want to escape from the ordinary by living according to your own desires, then these watches are the ideal choice for you!

BOMBERG embraces the free and rebellious spirit of millions of people around the world who dare to be different and create their own unusual rules of life and are brave enough to freely manage their lives and follow their dreams. With a maverick and emancipated spirit, BOMBERG moves away from the roots of traditional industry and creates superior products. The BOMBERG community is represented by people who resolutely reject the status quo and like to show it with their lifestyle. The creations you will discover in the BOMBERG world embody all these values and more, so let yourself be carried away by the extraordinary concepts and designs of this unusual Swiss watch brand. BOMBERG watches are here to take you on a new enchanting journey of life.

BOMBERG watches nurture three core values on which this exceptional watch brand rests: Bold, Innovation and Disruptive. Bold and different watches, making a powerful statement that sets them apart from the crowd. On the other hand, innovation and a patented creation designed “in-house” to transform a wristwatch into an amazing pocket watch. BOMBERG watches are the ones that disrupt and change the world for the better because by canceling the classic rules of watchmaking, it is the courage that gives you strength and energy to create unusual timepieces with innovative and unique designs and details like BOMBERG watches.

BOMBERG breaks away from the beaten path of traditional watchmaking, creating watches for people who are cool, creative and confident, all over the world in Latin America, USA, Asia and Europe. A Swiss brand, independent, nimble, fast based in Neuchâtel, BOMBERG follows its path with strong references to the world of tattoos, symbols and icons – The Tattoo. Yes, you read that right, the brand has been close to him since 2012. The bold and fearless team that makes up the BOMBERG brand stronger. Today, claiming its new positioning and advertising campaigns: #TattooYourDesire. Different trends around the world, different communities, BOMBERG tells their stories, highlights their creativity, affirms their personality.

As I mentioned a little while ago, the brand name BOMBERG arose naturally, the element “Berg” is a sign for this famous mountain. Going off the beaten path, Rick De La Croix wanted to cross the boundaries set by tradition and all that convention dictates. For him, one must dare to show one’s true face, to affirm one’s style with conviction, even if one crosses the sacred boundaries of “restraint”.

Proud to be Swiss, proud of the innovation and expertise his country brings to the world, his fondest desire is to discover and promote an aspect of the Swiss character that is too often hidden: bold, independent, sexy, seductive, avant-garde, voluntary, but always respecting tradition. Therefore, the development of his brand went in two directions: towards technical innovations and towards topics that are close to his heart. This is how Rick De La Croix managed to create watches with the “Swiss Made” philosophy in their DNA, adding accessories to transform them into pendants or table clocks, using a patented system of his own design.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you the “Automatic Mariachi Skull” model from the “BB-01 AUTOMATIC” collection. This unique watch from the limited collection is dedicated to the spirit of the mariachi, the famous Mexican musical style and group performance with horns, stringed instruments, high vocals, sombreros and elegant uniforms. The BOMBERG Mariachi wristwatch, themed in brown, features a stylized skull, flower eyes and a cross on the forehead. The sides of the watch case are decorated with lovely mariachi decorations, a detailed “touch of class” that will impress the people around you. The crown, placed at 2 o’clock, has a hint of brown, and the bracelet is made of calf leather with mariachi motifs embossed on it.

Technical information about the watch:

Case diameter: 43 mm
Case Material: Stainless steel
Bracelet material: Brown leather bracelet with embossed mariachi motifs.

Mechanism: Automatic
Movement type: Sellita SW200 with a power reserve of 38 hours
Additional Features: 3 hands with applied Super-Luminova® on the indexes. Date window at 6 o’clock. Sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating. Water resistance up to 50 m.

Visvim: An end-level Japanese Brand with Extraordinary Quality and Craftsmanship…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure. Today I will introduce you to a very unusual Japanese fashion brand that managed to conquer hearts of people all over the world by making clothes, shoes and fashion accessories of exceptional quality and unique craftsmanship – Visvim.

When I was thinking with which words to describe this unusual Japanese fashion house, I came up with two ideal words: dignity and pride. These two words are usually used hand in hand, but I believe they each have their own distinct definitions. It’s the difference between prioritizing taking care of yourself or prioritizing what others think of you.

Thinking about some things in life and everyday situations such as: “I want to be like this” and “I want to realize some of my dreams”, the Visvim brand continuously tries to connect its dear customers in the best possible way with the work of Visvim craftsmen who create with dignity placing great value on the cultural knowledge passed down to them. When Visvim clothing, shoes or accessories are finished, the brand believes that customers should really use it and experience it with their own senses in the best possible way, and when the opportunity arises, each customer should think about “why this product really means to me “. These are the moments when the Visvim team is happy to share the honesty they apply in making their products through the fabrics they use and the traces of craftsmanship that exist to reveal.

After all, in any era or time, it is the human heart that drives feelings and human empathy. The Visvim team strives to gradually increase the number of people who can sympathize and relate to their idea that we all live life together by taking care of ourselves through dignity and through the way Visvim garments are made with attitude. This is the kind of thinking that the Visvim team has nurtured from the very beginning.

Visvim is a Japanese men’s clothing, footwear and accessories brand founded by Hiroki Nakamura in 2000. The headquarters of the brand is in the heart of Japan – Tokyo. The Visvim brand has stores in Japan and the US, and is sold internationally in luxury department stores and multi-brand boutiques, including Bergdorf Goodman in New York and Dover Street Market in London. In addition to the main visvim line, Nakamura designs a womenswear line called VMV and a conceptual menswear line called F.I.L. Indigo Camping Trailer. Interestingly, this brand also produces its own range of coffee beans called Little Cloud Coffee.

I don’t know if you knew this interesting fact, but the word “Visvim” has absolutely no meaning. Hiroki Nakamura said he liked the v logos and looked through the “v” part of the Latin dictionary until he came across “vis” and “vim” and liked how the two words sounded together and created a powerful overtone. F.I.L., the name of Visvim’s flagship stores, stands for Free International Laboratory. This stems from Nakamura wanting the stores to be unusual working laboratories for the international brand.

Hiroki Nakamura was born in Kofu and grew up in Tokyo. Nakamura’s parents encouraged him to study abroad. At the age of 11, Nakamura met Cody Horn, one of his classmates at Bunka High School. Through Horn, Nakamura became interested in foreign cultures. Nakamura chose Alaska, a place he grew to love during family whale watching, camping and snowboarding. When he grew up, he started his career at Burton Snowboards in Japan, where he worked as a designer for 8 years.

After leaving his job at Burton Snowboards, Nakamura founded Visvim in 2001. Visvim started as primarily a footwear brand and later expanded into a full clothing and accessories collection. The brand held fashion shows in Tokyo, Paris and New York. It includes seven flagship stores in Japan, two flagship stores in the United States and has 135 stores worldwide.

In today’s fashion story, you have the opportunity to see an interesting Visvim shirt made of the highest quality silk. The shirt is made to be informal and comfortable, but due to its neutral champagne color, this shirt is a real elegant piece that is ideal for all occasions. The Visvim brand is one of the few brands that does not blindly follow brands but creates its own path.

Visvim footwear and clothing are made using a blend of traditional manufacturing techniques and modern technology. Previous inspirations for Visvim products include vintage Americana, Japanese Edo period clothing, French workwear, Amish patchwork fabrics, Native American clothing, the Alaskan outdoors and the culture of the Finnish Sami tribe. In addition to vintage construction and coloring techniques, visvim also uses Gore-Tek material for waterproof jackets and replaceable Vibram soles.

Which celebrities are big fans of visvim brand? Thundercat, RM from BTS, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Kanye West, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Mos Def, David Duchovny, Schoolboy Q, Drake, KAWS, Robert Ahearn, Edison Chen and Shawn Yue are just a few celebrities who they carry Visvim brand clothing, footwear and accessories. Eric Clapton specifically indicated during an interview that he wears nothing but fashion pieces from Visvim and Loro Piano brands.

BOMBERG is an independent Swiss watch brand that has become very popular in a short time due to its unusual watches that have a special design and character that is not for everyone. The BOMBERG brand name itself came naturally, and the “Berg” element is a sign for the famous mountain. If you identify as a rebellious soul and want to escape from the ordinary by living according to your own desires, then these watches are the ideal choice for you!

BOMBERG embraces the free and rebellious spirit of millions of people around the world who dare to be different and create their own unusual rules of life and are brave enough to freely manage their lives and follow their dreams. With a maverick and emancipated spirit, BOMBERG moves away from the roots of traditional industry and creates superior products. The BOMBERG community is represented by people who resolutely reject the status quo and like to show it with their lifestyle. The creations you will discover in the BOMBERG world embody all these values and more, so let yourself be carried away by the extraordinary concepts and designs of this unusual Swiss watch brand. BOMBERG watches are here to take you on a new enchanting journey of life.

BOMBERG watches nurture three core values on which this exceptional watch brand rests: Bold, Innovation and Disruptive. Bold and different watches, making a powerful statement that sets them apart from the crowd. On the other hand, innovation and a patented creation designed “in-house” to transform a wristwatch into an amazing pocket watch.

As I mentioned a little while ago, the brand name BOMBERG arose naturally, the element “Berg” is a sign for this famous mountain. Going off the beaten path, Rick De La Croix wanted to cross the boundaries set by tradition and all that convention dictates. For him, one must dare to show one’s true face, to affirm one’s style with conviction, even if one crosses the sacred boundaries of “restraint”.

Proud to be Swiss, proud of the innovation and expertise his country brings to the world, his fondest desire is to discover and promote an aspect of the Swiss character that is too often hidden: bold, independent, sexy, seductive, avant-garde, voluntary, but always respecting tradition. Therefore, the development of his brand went in two directions: towards technical innovations and towards topics that are close to his heart. This is how Rick De La Croix managed to create watches with the “Swiss Made” philosophy in their DNA, adding accessories to transform them into pendants or table clocks, using a patented system of his own design.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you the “Automatic Mariachi Skull” model from the “BB-01 AUTOMATIC” collection. This unique watch from the limited collection is dedicated to the spirit of the mariachi, the famous Mexican musical style and group performance with horns, stringed instruments, high vocals, sombreros and elegant uniforms. The BOMBERG Mariachi wristwatch, themed in brown, features a stylized skull, flower eyes and a cross on the forehead. The sides of the watch case are decorated with lovely mariachi decorations, a detailed “touch of class” that will impress the people around you. The crown, placed at 2 o’clock, has a hint of brown, and the bracelet is made of calf leather with mariachi motifs embossed on it.

LANVIN: Bumper, a Rediscovery of French Sportive Elegance…

My dear fashionista, I hope you are well and ready for a new summer fashion adventure. Today I will introduce you to a famous French fashion house that conquered the world with its minimalist elegance, but today it also changed the perception of sportive elegance, but before that I would like to continue the story of an unusual Swedish fashion brand that managed to create a special and specific way connected the beauty of fine art and fashion which resulted in obtaining an unusual collection of wearable fine art – Limitato.

Limitato was founded in Sweden by two business management students, Emrik Olausson and Gustav Peterson, with the ambition to introduce a refined rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic and give Scandinavia its first stylish menswear brand within the advanced contemporary segment. Gustav and Emrik inherited a passion for art from their families. They need art to make their surroundings energetic, eclectic and to inspire creativity. Through partnerships with emerging artists, the brand intends to communicate and enhance its community seasonally. The language used by this brand to communicate with customers is mature, elegant, sophisticated, creative and lively.

Limitato is a brand that operates at the crossroads of culture, art and fashion, connecting creative freedom and expression through numerous collaborations with artists. The brand is closely specialized in creating wearable works of art, but not the ones you imagine in a museum but works that contain ubiquitous cultural phenomena that are actual at this moment. The Limitato brand nurtures a vision of unique visual art to iconic moments in music history, some of the prints come from famous artists, photographers or historical archives.

The brand name Limitato is inspired by the concept of “limited edition” and aptly sums up the brand’s unique concept, which is that a garment can become a kind of wearable fine art. By creating garments with high-quality prints of graphic and photographic art, the Limitato team aims to make art more accessible while also creating some seriously urban and quirky clothing with a unique and distinct aesthetic.

The great success of the Pitti Uomo platform helped launch the Limitato brand onto the international fashion scene. Over the course of one season, Limitato brand products went from being stocked in five stores to 150, and by the time the Spring/Summer 2018 collection was released, Limitato had become a true fashion icon. The brand works exclusively with a range of artists and photographers, whose work ranges from iconic portraits to abstract graphic art. Artists do not need to be well-known, the most important thing they must possess is authenticity.

The T-Shirt you have the opportunity to see on me is “Gran” from the collection of artist Gary Hume. This t-shirt is part of an exclusive limited collection that was created in collaboration with artist Gary Hume. During this collaboration, Limitato, in collaboration with the artist, wanted to show the ideal combination of art and luxury, as the pinnacle of elegance and creativity. This “Gran” t-shirt is a wearable masterpiece that transcends fashion boundaries and makes a profound statement of art and style.

The premium quality fabric embraces your skin like a gentle caress, offering unparalleled comfort and ensuring you feel just as luxurious as you look wearing this shirt. As proof of the exclusivity of this fashion piece, these shirts as part of a limited edition come with a unique serial number, which confirms authenticity and rarity.

The second piece you have the chance to see in today’s post is the tracksuit bottoms. It is a Varsavia model of a tracksuit bottoms, which is very unusual because of the shade of blue. The Limitato tracksuit bottoms from the Signature Collection represent the advancement of the wearable fashion art movement, where Limitato clothing becomes a work of art to be coordinated with collaborative pieces or as a separate piece on its own.

If you want to stay updated and find out what artistic wearable fashion pieces the Limitato brand has to surprise us, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Now is the right time to introduce you to the French brand that is the subject of today’s post. Lanvin is a French luxury fashion house based in Paris. Founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, it is the oldest French fashion house still in operation. Since 2018, it has been a subsidiary of the Lanvin Group based in Shanghai. The House of Lanvin was named after its founder Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. Lanvin was founded in 1867 and opened its first store in rue du Marche Saint Honore in 1885.

Lanvin made clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac, which began to attract the attention of many wealthy people, who were looking for creations for their children. Soon Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, who were included in the clientele of her new boutique on rue Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris. In 1909, Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture, marking her formal status as a couturier. The Lanvin logo was inspired by a photograph taken of Jeanne Lanvin while attending a ball with her daughter in 1907. As Albert Elbaz said, “It is not a lion and it is not a horse. It’s mother and daughter, I find the logo very emotional.” Since 1923, the Lanvin empire has included a paint factory in Nanterre.

When Lanvin died in 1946, ownership of the company passed to her daughter Marguerite, who shared the management of the company from 1942 with a cousin, then an expert in the fashion industry. Since Marie-Blanche de Polignac was childless when she died in 1958, ownership of the House of Lanvin went to a cousin, Yves Lanvin. From the mid-1960s until the takeover by L’Oreal in 1996, Lanvin was led by Bernard Lanvin. The export department was in the original factory in Nanterre where all the perfumes were produced and bottled. The administrative seat was in Paris. In 1979, Lanvin bought its independence from Squibb USA and Paris organized a major PR promotional tour in the United States that same year. Midland Bank bought a stake in the company from the family in March 1989 and hired Leon Bressler to restore the firm’s faded image. However, in February 1990, Midland folded and sold Lanvin to Orcofa, a French holding company run by the Vuitton family.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see their new model of Bumper sneakers that are completely made in white leather. This model exists in various variations and combinations of materials and each sneaker is unique and unusual.

It is the best choice for quality leisure time and the model that best symbolizes the origins of the Allemano brand.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953.

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

Alberto Fasciani: Italian Elegance and Sophistication are priceless…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! As we all know, this month was marked by unstable and changeable weather, which affected all of us to wait a bit with the postponement of winter clothes. Due to the sudden change of weather, we always have a problem with choosing the right footwear, so I decided to help you and in this way answer people who sent me questions via messages on social networks and numerous emails to dispel all doubts.

Today we will meet some new brands and remind some old friends of Mr.M blog who share the same values and vision.

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.

Today on Mr.M blog you have the opportunity to meet one Italian footwear brand that is at the very top in the fashion world – Alberto Fasciani. This famous Italian brand knows exactly what it represents and stands behind its exceptional master pieces artwork and top quality. They are proud of their unique tradition that they have adhered to since the first day the company was founded in 1950.

Nevertheless, constant innovation is still an important part of this Italian company.

Many men around the world have fallen in love with this brand and wear some of the interesting models of this Italian footwear brand every day. All Alberto Fasciani boots and shoes are made to last a long time with proper skin care and maintenance!

This trademark signifies the quality, passion and originality of the Italian industry, which are certainly the words that describe this unique Italian footwear brand. Alberto Fasciani creates shoes and boots that are known around the world. Mr. Alberto Fasciani is guided exclusively by one motto, which caught my attention: “Whoever wears my footwear must feel as if it belongs to him from the very first time, as if he spent his whole life with it.” This emphasizes the essence of the work of Alberto Fasciani, whose main goal is to create comfortable and high quality shoes for the most picky men with refined fashion taste who know what they want to wear on their feet.

In today’s post, I wanted to show you a special Alberto Fasciani boots made of embossed green calfskin. The name of this model is Quincy 17027 has a brown padded calfskin collar. The embroidery is done with classic hooks that otherwise adorn traditional hiking boots. The finish of the boots is handmade with a rubber sole. As for advice on choosing the ideal size, keep in mind that this shoe model is a little more comfortable than other models, so you can take a smaller number, but it is best to consult with the expert Alberto Fasciani team via email and expect their response as soon as possible. .

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.

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. The company has adopted the latest methods of work, while respecting the oldest watchmaking tradition.

The collection of watches with Original Historical Movements is a series of watches that contain original historical movements from the 1950s and 1960s that have been preserved from oblivion and specially set in the Armand Nicolet atelier. These series are produced only in limited series because the amount of these precious watches is determined by the amount of original historical mechanisms that are still available.

These precious mechanisms are the result of many years of expertise, dedication and love for the fine arts of creating watches.

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! 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 a love for lasting masterpieces!

In today’s post, you had the opportunity to see Restelli Ski Gloves made of special waterproof peccary leather. These luxury ski gloves have a special zipper with a logo. You can choose a set of gloves from a large selection of fur and materials. Today I decided to walk around the city my dark brown gloves, which were extremely warm and a real fashion accessory for this unexpected winter in Germany!

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

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 Coronavirus in almost all Asian, 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 nature, 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 some nice time 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!

With Love from Germany,
Mr.M
