Loro Piana: Timeless Italian Refinement in Shades of Summer Pastel Colors…

My dear fashionistas, today I have a new special fashion adventure from Jordan for you. The pictures from today’s post were created during my stay at the Kempinski Ishatar Hotel on the Dead Sea, an extraordinary magical location that I wrote about in more detail in one of the previous stories from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

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

  1. The story about Amman and Jerash (travelogue)
  2. The story of Petra (travelogue)
  3. The story from Wadi Rum with Fratelli Rossetti (fashion story)
  4. The Fashionable Royal Blue adventure in Aqaba (fashion story)
  5. The story of Wadi Rum, the Moon Desert Princess (travelogue)
  6. The story of Petra with Loro Piana (fashion story)
  7. The story of Aqaba and the Dead Sea (travelogue)
  8. A Unique Story about Fratelli Rossetti Brera shoes in Jordan (fashion story)

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

Today, on the Mr.M blog, we are once again having some good time with a famous Italian brand, Loro Piana, and I’m presenting you my favorite pieces from their SS22. The pieces that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are models that can always be found in every Loro Piana collection, only in accordance with fashion trends, some new color palettes are introduced.

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 opportunity to see two special pieces (a polo shirt and a bermuda-shorts) from the latest men’s Loro Piano SS22 collection, which are just a small part of my favorites this season due to their distinctive elegance and my love for neutral pastel colors. Crafted from 100% silk, this polo t-shirt is perfect for the man who pays attention to detail and leaves nothing to chance. This short-sleeved T-shirt in soft taupe earth tones, a color that is perfect for all occasions and can be combined with other colors extremely easily. I think that all those who have been following my blog for years don’t remember that I used to wear bermuda-shorts, so this is a precedent that I will not forget because I don’t usually wear bermuda-shorts, but I just had to show you this model because they are the perfect length, suitable for summer walks and sightseeing tours.

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.

Finally we are coming to my favorite part of the post – the shoes! The moccasins that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are from the SS22 collection of the Italian fashion house Tod’s. Moccasins are made of the highest quality suede leather with details in the form of carved leather that imitates the natural lines that can be seen on the bark of trees.

Tod’s is one of the few brands on the fashion scene that has remained true to its roots and generations. Tod’s as a brand has always stood out for its quality leather and models that come from craft workshops. Mr. Diego Della Valle’s idea was to create shoes, appeal and fashion accessories suitable for both formal and informal occasions, with a casual, comfortable, simple but refined taste.

A brand considered the top of Italian design, Tod’s embraces a lifestyle that has always been an association for timeless elegance with superior quality. A way of life that is connected with the concept of the Italian way of life, good taste and “savoir vivre” – the art of living life.

Today, the Tod’s brand represents the pinnacle of Italian fashion and in addition to footwear, produces clothes, knitwear and fashion accessories that have found their place in the hearts of people all over Europe and the world.

I used my trip to Jordan as the opportunity to “walk around” my new fashion accessory – Christian Dior sunglasses that I got from my dear friends Edel-Optics. Edel Optics is one of the largest European online stores for eyeglasses and sunglasses. In addition to an online store that operates in all countries of the European Union, they have a store in Hamburg, Germany.

Fashionable Scenes from Belgrade Life with Armani Exchange

My dear fashionistas, we are finally approaching the end of 2019. There are still a few hours left and the excitement is growing as we count down the last hours of this old year. I will remember this year as one of the most successful so far and I have made many memories to remember.

I just wish you all the best in 2020 and all your wishes come true. I sincerely hope that you can reach all your goals in the coming year and that 2020 will also fulfill all your expectations.

A lot of love, happiness and health this is the classic “package” of wishes that I wish everyone with heart, and the rest will come over time. If a person is healthy, happy and loved, everything else can be accomplished, it just takes some time.

A couple of days ago I decided to take pictures for a new fashion outfit post in collaboration with my friends from fashion houses Armani and Loro Piana. Today I am going to introduce to you one of the more affordable Armani fashion lines – Armani Exchange.

A | X Armani Exchange brand was launched in 1991 in the USA with the aim of selling fashion and lifestyle products. This fashion line has become known for provocative advertising campaigns.

Inspired by street fashion and the culture of street music, the Armani Exchange brand is recognized by consumers around the world as a significantly more affordable brand from Armani fashion family.

In order to accelerate the development of Giorgio Armani’s first fashion line, famous fashion maestro Giorgio Armani founded the joint venture Presidio Holdings in 2005 in partnership with Como Holdings, a company owned by Singaporean tycoon Ong Beng Seng. production and distribution of the A / X Armani Exchange fashion line in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Asia and the Pacific region.

Initially, the Italian company Armani owned 25% of Presidio Holdings shares, with the remaining 75% in the hands of Como Holdings. Designer Giorgio Armani gained an additional 25% stake in 2008. In 2014, it gained the remaining 50% by securing full ownership of the brand, which has 270 stores and over 3,000 employees worldwide.

The Armani Exchange brand has opened its doors in Berlin, so you can go to Mall of Berlin and step into the world of the most famous designer Giorgio Armani just to see how Mr. Armani makes his street wear brand Armani Exchange.

I was tasked with fitting this jacket from the latest Armani Exchange winter collection with my style that is known as a kind of urban classic.

When I received my fashion pack of iconic pieces that I had to combine, I knew that this jacket would surely find its way to my heart!

I decided to combine this urban street, sportive piece with classic trousers and turtleneck swater instead of jeans or tracksuit as many people perceive this brand to be the best way to bring out this fashion piece.

My first goal was just to get my photographer out on the river and take some interesting pictures for this fashion outfit. It wouldn’t be me if I not decide to add some detail in my favorite color, we all realized by now that it was red. This time it was a simple red scarf, which was made in a beautiful shade of red that certainly refreshed this combination. Also there were some interesting red details which you can find on my backpack.

Blue colour has always been a symbol of covert elegance and has always been the best replacement for the famous black which is synonymous with eternal elegance. The color navy (dark blue) is the new black!

This post will also officially be my last blog post in 2019 and you will soon see little changes to the blog that you will like! I have prepared something new for you and the blog will change its concept and design, but the content will remain original and consistent with my style that started this whole story almost five years ago…

As time goes by, who would say, but here is my blog celebrating its fifth birthday . Just a little while so we’re ready for school!

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this post. This post would not have been possible without my friends from the Armani Exchange fashion brand, as well as the pioneer of the eternal Italian classic Loro Piana.

Happiness in Black and White World

Hi guys! Welcome to my new post. I hope you are well and you are ready for my new post. December is one of those months of the year when you are thinking about what did happen to you. It was a very difficult year for someone and you hope that the next year will be better, while somebody this year was very successful and your plans are much better and you can expect the next year to be even more successful … It’s like black and white … Is there between maybe grey? No?! What about those people who are not hoping at all? Are they maybe a “new” grey? Think about it!

I sincerely hope that this year have brought to you many wonderful moments to remember and that you will have them even more in 2018. Many of you have sent me many times one simple question: “Marko, when you are going to post some outfit post with black and white pictures?!”.

December is time when some wishes come true, so it’s time to make your wish come true, but I must admit that I also enjoyed in making of these photos because it was one big challenge for me.

 

 

It’s the truth what people say: “A man learns everything while he is alive!” It’s the same with pictures! Man constantly learns something new when editing photos. Each picture has it’s own story. I used my last chance this year before the snow and I decided to make some photos for my post.

It was pretty fun, and I also had a interesting company…

 

 

These swans absolutely fell in love with my camera, so they were constantly in the frame… Some animals seemed to be a superstars. Since now I have a Midge in the video, ducks in Slovenia, swans on the river and once I think I had also a cat. I think I will soon change the name of the blog so Mr.M and friends will be perfect. If nothing else at all I have a company for the shootings! ?

 

 

I’m sure you know (You really can notice in my posts) how much I love trench coats and coats. That’s why I decided that my first “black-and-white” post would be with my favorite fashion item from my closet. It’s all about taste and style. Everyone is unique in some way, but I think that they are rare people who don’t like them. They are the true icon in classic men’s fashion. I’m sure that you remember of the black and white movies and almost every good-looking man was worn some trench coat or coat. They were also the symbols for the detectives, but the real guys were wearing their raincoats in the final scene on the rain… Is that fact just cool to me or you also feel that way?

 

 

These trousers are pure symbol of classic style, they maybe have a famous Italian touch… So classic and elegant in Italian “slim fit” way. Do you notice anything unusual in this “classic” black an white story?

Somebody will notice, someone doesn’t see at all – The Shoes! The shoes give this combination a new, fresh urban look. That’s the “Urban Classics” style I’m constantly telling you about on my blog.

 

 

The story about shoes may be little unusual, strange, but you will learn something…

They were bought during my first visit to Berlin, almost 10 years ago… Then I didn’t even think that Berlin would be my second home. I still haven’t forgot that day! It was a summer time – August. It really was is a nice and sunny day. Little Marko walked around the city and suddenly it started to rain, just to make it clear now after I learn that everything is possible in Berlin. Mom and I just run into the first store we came across and waited there while it was raining outside. Then you learn a very important lesson in life! You just have to try on 20 pairs of shoes just in case that you don’t have to go outside and get wet! I remember there in that store was some amazing final sales and, of course, my mother, like every other woman on the planet, decided to buy at least one pair of shoes.

I looked around at the store and I didn’t find anything interesting to me, until one German lady came to return one of the men’s shoes, she was furious and something was really really wrong. She pulled shoes out of the box and she were just showing around to store manager and store assistants what is not ok on those shoes. I looked like a crazy person who just fell in love because I really liked those shoes. The women returned the shies, of course and I came as fast as I could, just to see my shoes, because it rarely happens to me that I liked something at first sight so much. The manager said that the shoes were damaged inside, that somewhere inside of one shoe the sewing inside one of the shoes was slightly wrong…

I listened all those bad things, but I didn’t care about. I also didn’t care about the size, because they was one and the half size smaller than my actual size. The Germans saw that they had found the right “fool” customer for their product, and for small sum of money I bought Dior shoes that I still wear today as well.

 

 

My mother convinced me that it certainly wasn’t good at all (as any other mother on this Earth), but the price has won in this case. Afterwards, we realised that the German lady tried to damage the shoes so she failed and she painted the part inside of shoes and in the light it seemed as the sewing would turn out. Now, I can only tell her: “Thank you, so so so much!”.

 

 

How the time just flies… 10 years since my first visit to Berlin, and also we came to the end of my today’s post. Somebody says I’m a good writer, somebody says I’m not… Who knows… For a couple of days  you will have the opportunity to see the new post about Ljubljana – the city of Jože Plečnik.

I sincerely hope that you liked my today’s post. I’d like to hear your impressions, how do you like black and white images, and maybe I’ll include them once a month on a blog. Let’s just me know is that ok and what you think about my idea. For any suggestions or proposals for collaboration, please visit my CONTACT ME page.

 

Best,

Mr.M
