Fashion Diary: A Fashionable Moment of Reunion with Nature…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! The holidays are over and it’s time for some work. In previous posts during this pandemic, I have tried to draw your attention and point out the importance of maintaining health and physical fitness during this hard times.

In addition to the use of supplements such as vitamins that we all buy in pharmacies, staying outdoors, especially in the natural environment on green areas or by rivers, can contribute to the improvement of the general health of the organism.

Scientists believe that being outdoors has a beneficial effect on people’s mental health. When you have free time for yourself, take an hour or two of your time and walk by the river or stay in nature.

Of course, in addition to a good mood, for staying outdoors you need warm clothing items that will allow you to spend your stay in nature in the best possible way.

Today, we also will spend some fashionable time with the Italian brand Aida Barni, which makes exceptional pieces of cashmere. This brand has become a symbol of elegance and sophistication due to its perfect sweaters and fashion accessories made of the highest quality wool – cashmere.

Aida Barni uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines. If you want to be up to date and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

If by any chance you missed previous posts or want to be reminded of some details, you can read the posts at the following links. Tips for maintaining your favorite pieces of cashmere – link. In case you want to find out more information about the Aida Barni and Annapurna brands, you can read the story of these brands at this link.

In addition to warm sweaters, during the winter we all hang out with jackets or shearling jackets, depending on personal preferences. This time I decided to complete my outfit with the leather shearling jacket that I have had in my wardrobe for years, and every time I see it in the closet, I admire how some things just don’t change over time.

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

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life in general.

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

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

Fashion trends vary depending on the season and weather conditions. Winter fashion trends are simple and the most important thing is to “respect” the rule that the most important thing is to be “layered dressed” due to the low temperatures that prevail during the winter period.

When it comes to winter fashion outfits, brown, navy blue and lighter neutral shades predominate in my wardrobe, with which I welcome cold winter days.

Today’s post contains the word nature in its title, and do we know what that term really means? Nature is, in the broadest sense, the equivalent of the natural world, the physical universe, the material world, or the material universe.

Nature as a term refers to the phenomenon of the physical world, as well as to life in general. This term usually does not include manufactured objects, nor human interaction, unless it qualifies as such, such as “human nature”. The notion of nature and the natural is also the opposite of the notion of the supernatural.

Today, in the everyday use of the word “nature”, geology is often referred to as the term wilderness. Nature can also define the general realm of various types of plants and animals, and in some cases the processes associated with inanimate objects – the way certain types of things exist such as the time and geology of the Earth, and the matter and energy of which all things are made.

Nature often means “natural environment” or wilderness made up of wild animals, rocks, forests, beaches and in general all things that have not been significantly altered by human intervention or those that last despite human interaction.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this third fashion story in 2021. How did you like this outfit of mine today? I hope that in addition to the definition of nature, you learned something new from my post today.

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!

I advise you 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

Fashion Diary: December, the month of sharing happiness and joy with others…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! With this post, I am officially opening the last month of this 2020 and I have prepared more interesting stories for you! Right at the beginning of this post, to make you happy, since I regularly receive your questions for travel letters, I decided to publish two letters from Germany this month. I believe that this has been an extremely difficult year for all of us and that we can hardly wait to turn some new pages in our diaries of life.

December is a symbol of happiness and joy because that period is reserved for the preparation for the celebration of holidays and with an open heart, we welcome the new year and secretly hope that some of our wishes will come true.

In today’s post, I present Mr. Morris to you again, he has now become a part of the blog and a living being, since you have seen him maybe more than me this season, and that is why he deserves an honorable place. I am glad that the products of the Italian company MooRER have found their way to your heart and that their fashion details warm you and your loved ones during these cold months!

This winter season, I tried to inspire you and show you an elegant jacket like Morris in different editions. We went from elegant combinations with classic trousers of various shades to those clothing combinations that include jeans that are a symbol for a little more casual and relaxed everyday occasions.

MooRER updated its winter collection offer a few weeks ago and I am sure you will find some of your favorite pieces that will make this winter more beautfiul!

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

I hope that this last month of the year will bring a lot of joy and hope and a smile back to your face. We all need that little bit of luck, because after this health crisis that has hit the whole world, we have nothing left but to hope that 2021 will be better.

Mankind has undergone various changes in its long history and the world has changed every time, but hope was the only support that helped people get out of the mental crisis. It is better for each of us to have a “straw of salvation” in which we can believe. Our ancestors survived various natural disasters and wars, so we will be able to get through this period as well!

It’s time to move on to a slightly happier and more interesting topic! I believe that it is interesting for all of you when some little things brighten and make your day complete. This crisis has affected many sectors and small artisan companies that are struggling to survive in the relentless market are suffering the most.

You probably remember these gloves, I wore them in one of the previous posts with a raincoat. Today I decided to show you how these beautiful dark brown Restelli suede peccary leather gloves fit perfectly with these gentle brown earth tones.

This model of gloves, with its classic design, is a timeless piece that can last you for years. Once you buy beautifully designed and quality leather gloves, believe me, forget about buying new ones.

Due to my problem with extremely dry skin on my hands, although I use creams and various lotions, I need to keep them warm and that is why I always have a collection of carefully selected gloves that help me keep warm and prevent cracking of the skin on my hands which can result in painful wounds.

If by any chance any of you know any natural products to solve my problem with dry skin on my hands I would love to hear your suggestions. Several times you have been of great help to me with recommendations when I needed natural remedies for facial skin and back pain. Who knows, maybe some of your advice will help me again!

OUTFIT

Jacket: MooRER

The Turtleneck Sweater: Loro Piana

Watch: Epos

Gloves: Restelli

Trousers: Loro Piana

Boots: Burberry

I advise you that due to the difficult current situation in almost all European countries, if you want 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 create crowds.

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

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten!

Since I make all photos outdoors and keep the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I did not need to wear a mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so that I can carry them around the city.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special story. How did you like this outfit of mine today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with some new story!

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!

Fashion Diaries: The Secret lies in finding the right accessories…

Dear my fashionistas, good morning and welcome to my blog. Difficult times have come and instead of counting down to the holidays that are getting closer to us, we live in fear that we will be healthy the next day. At the very beginning of the post I would draw your attention to be careful and to look out for others. I think that each of us has a conscience, and if you feel bad, stay at home and let’s hope that this health catastrophe will pass soon and that we will all see the light at the end of the tunnel together.

Today, this cold November Tuesday, I am sharing with you another fashion story from the streets of Berlin. November is sometimes really the last month of the year when we can take advantage of the weather and walk some of our favorite fashion pieces that occupy a special place in our closets. In my case, it would certainly be – a Trench Coat!

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see a navy blue trench coat, but today I will show you a honey-colored trench coat, which is one of the most famous and best-selling colours of the fashion house Burberry.

I remember when I got my first Burberry coat which I still keep today, but if someone had told me I would get a similar coat few years later, I really couldn’t believe it.

In addition to this favorite piece of mine that has refreshed my fall wardrobe for this and next seasons to come, I am also looking forward to some new unexpected details that have enriched my outfit today.

The watch is known as the best fashion accessory for every man. There is a quote: “Show me what kind of watch you wear and I’ll tell you who you are.” Every man determines his style, and fashion accessories are the ones that determine the direction in which that style will develop.

A wristwatch is much more than just a time indicator. A watch is a piece of art that adorns the hand of every man and woman and depicts the personality of the person wearing it. When buying a watch, the most important thing is to forget about trends and find yourself and stay consistent with yourself and your style.

Today I decided to show you a new watch in my collection – Epos Originale 3420 SK – an elegant automatic skeleton watch in an extremely thin edition.

The Epos company was founded in 1925 when Mr. James Aubert founded his own watch factory “James Aubert SA” in Vallée de Joux, a valley in the Jura Mountains that many consider to be the “cradle” of mechanical watches and is located in the Swiss canton of Vaud (Waadt).

Mr. Aubert was a passionate mechanical watch engineer, who dedicated his life to the development of new watch mechanisms. He was a top master of his craft and spent most of his efforts focusing on the technical development of chronographs and minute tutors.

He passed on his true love for watches and his knowledge to his son-in-law, Jean Filion, who then became the leading manufacturer of EPOS watches for many years. Mr. Filion has continued the tradition and made great strides in the innovations that have made this brand so unique in the market.

In the early 1980s, the success story of the traditional Swiss watch stagnated. New quartz technology has radically changed the true face of the watch industry. There were almost no brands that wanted to produce classic mechanical watches, with the exception of a few luxury watch brands.

Peter Hofer, a longtime expert in Swiss watch production, was one of the few who still believed in the future of mechanical watches. Believing in this vision, his wife Erna, as the biggest support, decided to found their own company in 1983: Montres EPOS SA.

Their only property was exclusively a passion for mechanical watches and all the necessary technical knowledge to create mechanical masterpieces.

Personal contacts with key people in the Swiss watch industry, as well as extensive knowledge of the global watch market, have enabled Peter Hofer to successfully develop his own brand. From the very beginning, Hofer was supported by Jean Fillon, who was the driving force behind many interesting EPOS innovations.

During 20 years of his work, Hofer has remained true to his vision, developing stunning collections that include fascinating mechanisms in collaboration with Mr. Fillon.

In the early 2000s, Peter Hofer sought successors who shared his indescribable passion for mechanical watches.

New business partners in EPOS are the Chonge-Forster family, a family with deep roots in the Swiss watch industry: Ursula Forster, who became the new president of the company, comes from a family with a long and rich tradition in the production of Swiss watches. Her husband, Tamdy, who has taken over as CEO, has been working in the top positions in the Swiss watch industry for many years.

Together, they took over the company from Mr. Peter Hofer in 2002 and have since developed the EPOS brand, expanding their product portfolio and expanding internationally. Building on the long legacy and knowledge selflessly invested in the company, they have always focused on creating highly sophisticated mechanical masterpieces at affordable prices, remaining true to the company’s slogan: Art in the watchmaking world.

After this interesting story about time and tradition in Switzerland, where time is highly valued, we move briefly to the most famous cradle of fashion – Italy.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide his joy when he smells the new Italian skin. Today I present to you the most famous workshop that creates real small leather masterpieces. Welcome to the Restelli workshop where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet.

Now let’s all imagine this picture together: “Milan, 1920 and a glove shop near the Duomo”. At the same time, they made personalized gloves in according to the wishes and tastes of each customer.

At that time, gloves were a symbol of elegance and sophistication, an irreplaceable fashion accessory for all occasions. Piero Restelli soon realized that his passion, handwork with the best and most precious types of leather and deep respect for craft production were just the beginning of a long successful journey that would reshape the glove industry.

The factory was founded with its own leather reserves, which played a very important role in the leather processing process, over time production began to increase. The success of this small family company goes further and takes us to the early 50s when Piero Restelli Jr. and his wife, young and determined, presented their special collection of sportswear…

Soon, on the streets of Milan and throughout Italy, waterproof gloves made of the highest quality peccary leather covered with warm opossum fur became a symbol of the Italian “Jet Set” of high society and Restelli became a world-famous brand.

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

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

I believe that today we have all recognized something beautiful in these stories, and that is respect for and preservation of tradition, following innovations in step with the times and dedication that has no price.

Work, effort and discipline are the three basic things that are needed to maintain in any business. Of course, there are also those moments when happiness, belief in one’s work and dedication play an important role.

The COVID-19 health situation brought difficulties to everyone, the world stopped and just started to develop and return to normal, but the new wave that started in Europe during October 2020 resulted in another wave that affects the development and survival of many industries.

In Germany, the economy began to recover, but with this renewed “quarantine” many people lost their jobs. Some world experts believe that the damage caused by the Corona virus will be significantly greater because many people have lost their jobs and many companies have closed their doors. Do you know how many families were left without income?

Picard, a brand that you have had the opportunity to see on my blog for years, are the famous leather backpacks that kept me company on my travels around the world. My new Picard buddy, we can call him Relaxed We decided to keep each other company on the streets of Berlin while we wait for this health situation to calm down and wait for better days to continue our traveling adventures.

Picard Relaxed is great for every day because it is big enough that I can take everything I need to do my daily duties around the city. The big advantage is the new special lining material that prevents the spread of radiation so you can carry various types of electronic devices without fear that some of the devices will affect your credit card or mobile phone.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

The Roll Neck Sweater: Loro Piana

Watch: Epos

Gloves: Restelli

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Brunello Cucinelli

Sneakers: MooRER

Of course, I also completed this outfit with the perfect brown MooRER sneakers that you had the opportunity to see in previous posts of this fashion season. I can’t wait to show you other models of MooRER sneakers so you don’t criticize me for having only one pair to wear this season.

My problem sometimes is that I get attached to some things and I am ready to wear them a couple of times in a row. This is exactly what happened with the things of the fashion house MooRER, and from a lot of things which I got, I became attached to brown pieces for now, trying to move to another world of colors.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this as just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I respected all the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the dedication, tradition, love and patience. How did you like this honey – golden – brown outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new fashion story from Germany!

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!

From Berlin with Love,
Mr.M
