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.

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!

With love from Berlin,
Mr.M

Fashion Diary: Refresh the Gloomy and Cold Winter with some Bright Colors…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion story at your favorite place – Mr.M. We are slowly but surely counting down the last days of winter, hoping that spring will bring us some new joys. At this time last year, the world found itself in some absolutely unknown situation when we first heard about the Coronavirus and we could only sit in front of our TV screens and hope to overcome this catastrophe that hit the whole world.

Last year we could only imagine going outside at least for a moment and walking down our favorite street, this year at least we got some new hope that life would soon return to normal with the discovery of vaccines.

This year, I decided to say goodbye to winter with details of bright colors. I believe that red is a favorite color of most people because it is a color that signifies joy and happiness. Scientists believe that colors significantly affect mood swings and can affect people’s mental health.

Some research has shown that the color red evokes strong emotions and encourages an individual to make some new changes in life. I noticed that this is really a true fact, because whenever I decided to change my life habits or make new decisions, the color red was unconsciously a silent observer to my eye and every time I brought some details of the color red into my life.

When I applied for jobs in Germany a couple of years ago, I honestly had no hope that anything would change in my life. Every day, a large number of e-replies were I was rejected by companies, as my CV did not “match” with the required profile of the person who needed the advertised job.

I remember getting over 20 quite cold rejections during one week, but that didn’t discourage me from continuing to compete to find my place under the sun in the promised Deutschland (Germany)!

It was a very ordinary Thursday afternoon, I was walking down the streets of Belgrade and I noticed a kind old lady selling woolen gloves that she made.

The lady radiated positive energy and was very kind, lovely and smiling. On one box that was covered with fine velvet in wonderful navy blue color were on display some gloves. One bright red gloves stood out in particular. They were beautiful, but a little small for my hands, I don’t even know what force “pulled” me to buy them, but I did it!

I was happy for one such little thing, but my day was “saved” with one pair of perfect red gloves. At one point, I felt the vibration of the phone, which means receiving a new e-mail, because I did not want to spoil my “five minutes of happiness”, I decided to leave reading the e-mail for later when I come back to reality.

That day, one red glove brought me immense happiness and a change in my life that I will remember, today these beautiful navy blue Restelli gloves made of the finest leather protected my hands from dandruff caused by the cold wind that dries my hands with incredible speed.

I can say that these navy blue gloves also brought me happiness because they arrived early this morning and with them also some new good news that I will share with you soon when the time is right. It seems that gloves have become symbols of great life changes for me, maybe that’s why I adore these fashion accessories so much.

Life is unpredictable and full of surprises that can be positive or negative. I belong to a group of people who believe in the balance of life, so that life is made up of beautiful and those less beautiful moments that shape us and in that way we mature as individuals with all our virtues and flaws at the same time.

I always have an interesting question that I want to share with you, but I just managed to remind myself and ask you: “Do you believe in miracles?

Do miracles really exist or are they just beliefs? Honestly, I believe in miracles, but I do not rely too much on the factor of happiness. I always try to do everything in my power, and only then can I admit to myself that I did everything that was up to me and let myself wait for the good news. How do you think, what kind of energy do you invoke and radiate, so in the end you will get the results…

My today’s outfit helped me to bring a smile to the faces of passers-by. Some recognized me and finally listened to my advice from the blog to approach and get to know each other. One girl who has been following my blog regularly for almost three years asked me to take a quick photo and also took a selfie with my cheerful red scarf. Looks like it was the star of the day!

In addition to irresistible details like a scarf and a turtleneck sweater, I had another interesting red detail that you had the opportunity to see in previous fashion stories on the blog – the red watch!

This interesting red watch, in addition to faithfully showing the time, is also a real little work of art that can adorn everyone’s hand. My new friend Jaguar is from the special collection “Kingdom“. This watch is handmade in faraway Canada in the main workshop of Ematelier, a brand behind which stands a passionate watch lover, founder Alex Landa.

All “soft” knit fashion details are a gift from my dear friends from Scotland – Johnstons of Elgin. You had the opportunity to see this rollneck sweater on the streets of Berlin in one of the posts at the end of last year, but the scarf is a new detail that represents the famous Scottish print for which this exceptional country is famous.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special post where together we discovered some facts about the red color that most people love. How did you like this combination of mine today, with which I said goodbye to the last days of winter?

I really tried to prepare this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story from faraway Russia!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation 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, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by walking around the city every day, on low-traffic streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance and use disinfectants and wear a mask.

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. Stay tuned!

Best,
Mr.M
