HiSO: Refined World of Luxury Canadian Shearling and Fur Outerwear

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. With today’s fashion story, we say goodbye to January and holiday euphoria with the hope that the new year 2023 will bring us some new interesting challenges.

Today we are meeting again with an interesting Canadian brand HiSO. A walk by the river can be stylish as you see in a more elegant version with classic trousers. HiSO, formally known as Hide Society, is a brand that is Canadian to the core. With sustainability and fashion development in mind, they have been successfully making luxury jackets and coats from alpaca, wool and shearling for decades. Every step in the creation of clothing, the HiSO brand takes an environmentally conscious approach when creating its products. Originally founded in the fashion district of Toronto, the brand has grown from a small family boutique to an internationally recognized brand.

HiSO is one of the most famous Canadian brands for making winter jackets and coats. Due to extremely harsh climatic conditions, the expert team of this brand is here to overcome all weather conditions and to design and adapt winter clothing pieces that you will love. What is the secret of this brand’s success?

All processes starting from procurement and design to final production, HiSO controls every step of the creative and production process, which makes this brand special. HiSO was formerly known as the Hide Society, which has become synonymous with the art and luxury of jackets and coats since 1975, nearly half a century of tradition. Impressive, isn’t it?

The family company, which is currently successfully managed by the second generation, was founded in Canada. The HiSO company provides superior quality and design in each of its garments, which is woven with 45 years of experience that can be felt in every detail. Headquartered in Toronto, with special offices in Berlin and a production facility in Poland, HiSO quickly became the world’s leading manufacturer of leather and shearling outerwear.

A little more than 20 years ago, inspired by their hard work and building a family business from an early age, twin brothers Karl and Mark took over the leadership of the company with a new mission – to reposition and raise the brand to the world level, thus introducing the new name HiSO (short for Hide Society).

Their goal was to revive the classic vision of coats and jackets where they would combine fashion with the functionality of everyday life. Their vision brought completely new innovative designs while still retaining the luxurious materials leather, fur and fabrics of exceptional quality that this brand is known for.

With the great desire to expand the range of products, the rebranding also led to the expansion into the world of precious fabrics (cashmere, wool and alpacas). HiSO purchased a factory in Toronto where all precious fiber clothing is now produced. Shearling and leather jackets are still produced at HiSO’s European facility in Poland.

Soon after the brand transformation, HiSO became a favorite global name known for its Black Label division targeting new markets. In the fall of 2020, a new inspiration appeared.

Based on the results achieved and built on the success of the HiSO Black Line, the White Label was born! Following the modern market of luxury and prestige, the White Label collection “dazzles” all fashion lovers with its creations who cannot satisfy their appetite for new fashion trends.

HiSO is one of the few brands that actively engages in an ecological approach to sustainable fashion through every step of creating its garments. Whether it’s alpaca, cashmere, wool or leather montons, HiSO works exclusively with environmentally conscious companies, ensuring the best methods and materials used to protect the environment.

HiSO leather and fur are of ethical origin, as they are a by-product of the food industry. Using this product basically returns all those materials that would otherwise be disposed of and thus waste would be created. Shearling leather and fur are natural materials obtained from tanneries that support sustainability according to international standards that regulate animal by-products from their origin to the moment they are produced for final use.

Respecting and maintaining the vision of shared values is maintained by HiSO through cooperation with suppliers who have like-minded views on the importance of sustainability. The benefits of this cooperation include: respect for the right to clean water, energy, energy management and reduced emissions and recycling.

The Tennant shearling coat that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of the highest quality shearling and fur with the addition of silver fox fur on the collar. When you buy your HiSO garment, you can always contact their team who will be at your disposal to help you choose the ideal piece for you or your loved one.

Also, this brand offers tailor-made jackets and coats, so you can get a piece that will fit you. In addition, you can choose the type of material (shearling, leather or fabric) as well as the type of fur and color. HiSO is a brand that strives to fulfill all the needs and wishes of customers in the right way and to be part of the HiSO family with pleasure.

We are moving from the Canadian fashion scene to the Italian one, where we are once again meeting with a brand you know, which you had the opportunity to meet this winter season on the Mr.M blog. The Italian brand we’re hanging out with again today is Marco Pescarolo, a brand from Naples that combines traditional classic Italian tailoring style with modern casual elegance. Naples is known as a colourful, lively, exciting and diverse city, indeed one of the most fascinating cities in Italy. This is where we begin our today’s story about the Marco Pescarolo brand.

Marco Pescarolo is a brand that nurtures the Neapolitan spirit where warm, vivid tones balanced by sophisticated and sharp cuts create a different sense of fashion.

Fashion Postcard from Istanbul: A Stylish Walk on the Turkish Cobbled Streets of Sultanahmet…

My dear fashionistas and travelers, today I am taking you again to Istanbul. In today’s fashion story, you will enjoy a stylish walk along the Turkish cobbled streets of the old part of Istanbul – Sultanahmet. This is the last fashion story from Istanbul, next week a shopping guide awaits you, I will try my best to give you the beauty of shopping in this imperial city on two continents.

Sultanahmet Square, once known as the Hippodrome of Constantinople, is today a square in Istanbul, in the immediate vicinity of which are the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Previously, it was a circus that was the sports and social center of Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire. The word hippodrome comes from the Greek hippos (ippos) – horse and dromos – road. For this reason, it is sometimes called Atmeidanı (“Horse Square”) in Turkish. Horse and chariot racing were popular pastimes in the ancient world, and hippodromes were common features of Greek cities in the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine periods.

From Taksim Square to Sultanahmet Square, it is very easy to get there with the help of the tram, and in a few stops you will be in the center of the old city.

The Blue Mosque of Istanbul, also known by its official formal name, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, is a historic Ottoman-era imperial mosque located in the center of the old part of the city. A functional mosque, it also attracts a large number of tourists. It was built between 1609 and 1616 during the reign of Ahmed I.

Its Kulije contains Ahmed’s grave, a madrasa and a hospice. Hand-painted blue tiles adorn the interior walls of the mosque, and at night the mosque is bathed in blue as lights frame the mosque’s five main domes, six minarets and eight side domes. It is located next to Hagia Sophia, the main mosque in Istanbul until the construction of the Blue Mosque and another popular tourist spot. In 1985, the Blue Mosque was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List under the name “Historic Areas of Istanbul”.

Hagia Sophia (literal translation ‘Holy Wisdom’), officially the Great Mosque Hagia Sophia is a mosque and the main cultural and historical site in the old part of the city. The cathedral was originally built as a Greek Orthodox church that lasted from 360 AD until the conquest of Constantinople by the Ottoman Empire in 1453. It served as a mosque until 1935, when it became a museum. Two years ago, in 2020 to be exact, Hagia Sophia became a mosque again.

The current building was built by the Eastern Roman emperor Justinian I as a Christian cathedral in Constantinople for the state church of the Roman Empire between 532 and 537, and was designed by the Greek geometers Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralus. The official name of the church was the Church of the Holy Wisdom. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is considered to have “changed the history of architecture”.

The current Justinian building was the third church of the same name to occupy the site, since the previous one was destroyed in the riots in Nicaea. As the episcopal seat of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, it remained the largest cathedral in the world for almost a thousand years, until the Cathedral of Seville was completed in 1520. Beginning with later Byzantine architecture, the Hagia Sophia became the paradigmatic form of the Orthodox Church and its architectural style modeled on Ottoman mosques a thousand years later. It has been described as “occupying a unique position in the Christian world” and as an architectural and cultural icon of Byzantine and Orthodox civilization.

Since we got acquainted with the history of this old part of the Istanbul, it’s time to write a few words about my outfit. Today we are again meeting with the famous Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli.

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 runway 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.

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 shearling leather jacket you have the opportunity to see in today’s fashion story is a rebellious fashion response to current fashion trends. This show piece, masterpiece is crafted from the finest reindeer leather with an arctic fox collar from the latest Autumn/Winter 2022/23 collection.

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

There is no person in the world who can hide the joy when feels the smell of new Italian leather. Today we reunite with the Italian family-owned glove workshop Restelli, a place where art, tradition and the beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of Italian style and way of life. Making gloves is not only a job but also a true art. After 100 years, passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation! Rafaela Restelli has fully embraced the challenges of a new fashion era where the market and way of selling has changed with a deep respect and belief in tradition and love for masterpieces that last!

In today’s post, you had the opportunity to see Restelli gloves made of special peccary leather. These luxurious leather gloves are made of the highest quality leather. The lining of these gloves is made of cashmere. It got a little cold during my visit to Istanbul, so I decided to better protect my hands and walk around in my unusual cognac-colored gloves, which were extremely warm and the right fashion accessory for this unexpected cold in the imperial city on two continents.

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

As a person for whom traveling has become something more than a passionate hobby, I must admit that a backpack is my best friend. I believe you all recognized Bric’s backpack from the Life Pelle collection, which this time came back to Istanbul with me. Bric’s is a prestigious Italian brand of travel goods with which you can feel the ease of traveling with unique and elegant suitcases and fashion accessories. The Life Pelle collection nurtures the beauty of leather pieces that you can travel the world with.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Fur and Pearls Are Forever!

Dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing well. I believe that today’s fashion story will be interesting for many women because I will share with you my favorite fashion pieces. The subject of my first fashion story on the Mr.M blog is the beauty of fur and pearls – symbols of style and immortality. Fur is a noble material that has always been worn by celebrities, members of royal families, while in Belgrade this status symbol was worn by great ladies.

In addition to fur, the necks of those elegant ladies were decorated with pearls, which have always been a timeless classic. My mother loved fur, and from her I inherited my love for this noble material, as well as for pearls, which I still wear with great pleasure.

After the published fashion story about the FURMARK certificate for the sustainability of fur in the fashion industry on the Mr.M blog, Marko and I received numerous questions regarding the selection of the appropriate quality of fur, as well as the selection of a fur coat model. Many ladies were in doubt, since buying a fur coat is a serious investment and therefore it is necessary to carefully choose the right model for yourself. There are furs of different quality on the market, from pieces to whole skins, natural and dyed fur.

Therefore, it is best for everyone to choose the fur that the lady thinks is the best and always ask the professionals, who can help you and answer all your doubts. Prices can vary and it is certain that with a higher price, you get better quality, which is of course the desire of all of us. A coat is a piece that is eternal, it can be passed on to generations to come.

I love fur and love to wear it. This wonderful mink cape with an unusual cut has taken a special place in my wardrobe this winter season. I am always happy to give my trust to Italian furriers because of the exceptional quality of workmanship and unusual design. The cape that you have the opportunity to see in today’s fashion story is a true masterpiece of the Italian fur shop Nello Santi.

The story of this brand begins in the chilly autumn of 1943, when the inhabitants of the Italian town of Grosseto were anxiously awaiting the coming winter. It was a winter that swept the whole area with cold winds and white frosts, as it does every year. The capital of the Maremma region was badly affected by the Great War. The population was exhausted and battered by years of conflict and poverty, as well as their sad loss of offspring, misery and hunger.

A few years later, in 1960 to be exact, the war ended and great Italy finally experienced a revival. Those were the years of the “dolce vita” (Sweet Life), even in sun-drenched Tuscany, style and elegance and the label “Made in Italy” were becoming increasingly sought after. Women competed to show off in the most expensive and unusual furs. Furs were trending, and Nello Santi as a specialized workshop for prestigious, high-quality furs experienced its heydays.

Alessandro Santi, who grew up in the world of fashion and luxury furs, took over the family company and in a short time became famous throughout Tuscany for his distinctive style and the skill with which he took care of every detail, turning each garment into a unique fashion piece of great value and extraordinary beauty.

The gentle and elegant lines of Nello Santi fur have always been inspired by the authentic landscapes of sunny Tuscany. This unusual Italian fur shop experienced its turning point of success in the 80s, when the determination of the Santi family went one step further and conquered the international markets of luxury goods.

Thanks to the eldest son of Mr. Alessandro – Nello Santi, this brand is synonymous with quality, reliability and timeless elegance. Mr. Nello Santi is aware of the value of what he has inherited. He has a deep understanding of his company, which is why he always makes sure that his customers can come to Grosseto and visit the workshop that his grandfather created many years ago, in the country where he was born, where it all began.

Nello Santi fur collections are enriched with new notes, colors and lines that fit well with contemporary styles, while never neglecting the elegant cut of his original designs.

The combination of nature and craftsmanship, which the Santi family offers as a selfless gift to new generations today more than ever, in the face of the rise of mass production and the use of highly polluting synthetic fabrics, represents a practice of “green elegance” that must be protected and passed on. Fur has a history as ancient as the world itself. It has always been a part of the natural cycles of human life and in addition to being an exclusive and unique product, it is ecologically sustainable at every stage of production and does not cause pollution of the natural environment.
Producing, buying and wearing a fur coat is a gesture of love for tradition and nature and, like any gesture of love, it is capable of bringing beauty and pleasure into our lives.

In addition to high-quality fur, I always like to wear pearls, which have always been a timeless fashion classic. My outfit today was enriched by a pearl necklace and earrings from the famous Macedonian brand Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928.

The Filevi family is a family that has been producing Ohrid pearls since 1928, which is confirmed by historical facts and numerous institutions. The secret of making Ohrid pearls is still one of the most closely guarded secrets of this family, which combines pearls into creative pearl necklaces and bracelets, and has been passed down from generation to generation for the fourth generation. When we talk about pearl, we always think of the pearl that is in the shell, but the Ohrid pearl is much more than that and has a more specific way of production. It is extremely important to note that there are only two families in Ohrid who know the secret of making the famous Ohrid pearl.

The Ohrid pearl is not found in the shell, but is made by taking the brightest (inner) part of the shell, processing it well and obtaining the desired shape – a grain of mother-of-pearl. Another process of grain processing is coating the already obtained mother-of-pearl grain with an emulsion obtained from the scales of the Ohrid fish – Alburnus scoranza. Today, several new models of Ohrid pearl necklaces appeared, which accentuated certain events such as weddings, celebrations and visits, girlfriend proposals and many others.

The Filevi family – Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 offers a rich collection of unique handmade jewelry. A large selection of different colors of cultured natural pearls allows you to choose the ideal piece of jewelry for your sensibility. Each creation is characterized by an individual approach to conception and design. They are made in different lengths according to the customer’s wishes. Their jewelry is for people who want to be different, with a unique fashion style.

Today, my neck is adorned with a pearl necklace with filigree and an elegant figure of a lady. What is a filigree? Filigree is one of the most beautiful metalworking techniques. This technique has been used throughout the centuries to produce extremely high-quality and valuable jewelry as well as decorative items that we still admire today. In order to make a decorative item or jewelry using this technique, silver, gold, and less often copper wire is used to compose the motif. Threads of wire are bent and interlaced, tied together and thus a complex motif is formed that can be placed on a metal base or completely free. Circles, flowers, and geometric patterns were made from filigree wire. Small metal balls were sometimes placed on objects made in this way.

Pearl earrings that complete my outfit are Filevi 1928 rhodium-plated silver earrings. You can find the rich Filevi 1928 collection of Ohrid pearls and jewelry with classic, marquise and rhodium silver in the center of Belgrade (Serbia), at Knez Mihailova 29, in the passage next to the Progress Gallery.

Also if you are going to the heart of North Macedonia – Ohrid and visiting the capital Skopje, take the opportunity to visit their stores.

The making of Filevi 1928 jewelry is a real art and each handcrafted piece of Filevi jewelry has, above all, a special sentimental value. Passion for jewelry and love for fine craftsmanship is reflected in every single piece of Filevi 1928 jewelry. All you have to do is imagine and wish for an Ohrid pearl, and Filevi 1928 is here to create and realize your wishes and ideas together with you.

If you want to know more about Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 brand and discover the world of Ohrid pearls, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. See you in a few days at the same place, with some new interesting story.

Best regards,

Rose

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater, it is a gift from the heart, because a cashmere sweater carries a certain symbolism with it.

Aida Barni is a brand that belongs to the Annapurna group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and world manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines, Annapurna and Aida Barni.

Annapurna uses all the latest production techniques available on the market, from cotton looms to the latest and most advanced knitwear machines of all sizes. The current production capacity is about 120,000 pieces per year. It is important to note that the entire production cycle is performed in Italy, more precisely in the factory of the company located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the province of the same name located in the heart of Italy – Tuscany.

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

Annapurna is a name that evokes everyone with exceptional mountain landscapes, especially the mountain range in the Himalayas where goats live with their winter fleece, hiding the soft, warm “cloak” that made them so famous.

Aida Barni is an iconic and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a goal for a woman who decided to enter the world of business in the late seventies and reach the very top of this challenging and one of the most difficult sectors of the market.

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

The Aida Barni brand was created as an artistic expression of the way of life and existence, the essence of unstressed chic, refined luxury. A collection for men and women dedicated to everyone who loves timeless and elegant knitwear that encompasses true elegance in the preciousness of materials, shapes and details.

The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Customers of the Aida Barni brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

Aida Barni concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in multi-brand stores and department stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and love because you are giving a piece in which love and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day is woven.

For all Aida Barni fans in Germany, I have discovered two men’s spots where you can find and enjoy in the beauty of Aida Barni incredible knitwear: Braun Hamburg and Mientus retail stores.

If you want to stay tuned and find out all the news that Aida Barni is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Down Jacket: Brunello Cucinelli

Turtleneck Sweater: Aida Barni

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

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it!

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new strain of Omicron Coronavirus in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind and enjoy the winter magic, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

Christian Louboutin: Winter Magic of the most desirable Red Soles…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! Today’s post is special for me because together we will discover what really lies behind the magic of the iconic red soles of the famous French shoe designer Christian Louboutin.

Christian Louboutin is a French-Egyptian shoe designer who, from the very beginning of his career, created avant-garde high-end shoes that attracted the attention of women on the streets of Paris with their unique design.

Most of people believe that red soles have been his trademark since the very beginning of the work of this French fashion house in 1991/92. year, but the famous shiny, lacquered soles were introduced by Mr. Louboutin only in 2004 during the launch of the Pigalle model for the Autumn – Winter 2004/05 collection.

Mr. Louboutin once said: “I don’t make seasonal shoes, I create works of art that will adorn your feet and attract the jealous eyes of passers-by.”

Christian Louboutin has become an extremely loved and adored brand among both genders and thus has become one of the most desirable footwear brands of all time.

Each of us who had the opportunity to meet Louboutin shoes and leather goods has their own story, so for me, buying the first Louboutin sneakers was an experience to remember.

I received my first Louboutin sneakers as a gift from my mother for my 18th birthday, my father decided to celebrate my entering the world of adults with a family trip to the city of light – Paris.

My mother, who has always been a huge fashionista, loved Louboutin shoes and wanted to give me something special for my 18th birthday. I remember it was a beautiful, sunny day just to wish for one birthday.

We spent the morning in the museum, but after our birthday lunch we decided to take a walk through the streets of Paris. I noticed that my mother was especially excited, but I could not guess that we would spend that afternoon in the first open atelier store of Christian Louboutin in Paris.

My mother tried to help me choose the perfect pair of CL shoes with her suggestions, but she was more successful in choosing shoes for herself. Honestly, I thought I would come out empty-handed, but the saleswoman brought out some beautiful sneakers to a guy who was obviously not happy with the order.

The sales assistant was not interested in showing me the sneakers, but I was crazy lucky that she was accompanied by a saleswoman from Balkan who left her clients to listen to my description of shoes in the whole crowd, which did not calm down for a single moment.

I think we spent almost an hour waiting for the shoes, but in the end I got what I wanted, beautiful pony hair sneakers in shades of brown with discreet black patent leather details. These were definitely the sneakers of my dreams, an ideal gift, but as it happens in my life, there was one big BUT here – the sneakers were a size smaller than I needed.

Of course, those were the only one size shoes, according to the principle take it or leave it… Mom just said we take them and that’s it! Luckily we have a fantastic shoemaker in Belgrade who solves absolutely all problems and that those sneakers are still in my wardrobe, always tidy and polished, waiting for some new adventures.

A famous question that is always asked: Are Louboutin shoes comfortable? I can only tell you that I have more than 15 pairs of Louboutin shoes that I like to wear and carefully store and maintain. These are shoes that are definitely not bought every day.

The moment when the dream becomes reality is the summer of 2021, when I receive an invitation to collaborate from the famous German online shopping platform Mytheresa and when they asked me how much I love Christian Louboutin shoes? Is it really necessary to ask that question?!

The first Louboutin sneakers I got from Mytheresa Man I presented during the summer season on the Mr.M blog in this post. Who doesn’t have time to read my post, these are the famous Louis Orlato suede leather sneakers with spikes in a beautiful burgundy color.

Shoes which you can see in today’s post are the second pair I got from Mytheresa Man and I can’t describe to you my happiness when I saw the CL box! This model is Rantus Orlato made of real python skin from a limited series made in metallic blue. The sneakers waited for the spotlight this winter when I got new winter pieces that I admit I chose based on these shoes!

The jacket fit perfectly with these shoes, just as if it was created by the fashion house Louboutin! If you want to find interesting fashion pieces and a special collection of shoes you can find on the Mytheresa online shopping platform where all fashion lovers can find something for themselves!

We started today’s story with shoes, but I would also like to tell you something more about the pieces that make up my outfit. The down-jacket, sweater and trousers are from the collection of the fashion house Roberto Cavalli, only the sweater and trousers are from the Cavalli Class line, while the jacket is from the first line of the fashion house Roberto Cavalli.

Trousers are, in addition to shoes, I believe the stars of today’s fashion story because of these unusual metallic gold stars details.

In the last year, I have returned to the good old habit of wearing watches, which I must admit I am glad and proud of! Today, I decided to take to the city one of my faithful allies who helps me not to be late, and at the same time to have an 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.

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

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it!

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new variant of Corona virus – Lambda in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind and enjoy the charms of the autumn, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

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

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

SVEVO Parma: Italian Elegance and Sophistication woven into every piece of fine yarns…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! I believe that all the preparations for the weekend are over and that this working week passed in a good mood! Earlier this week, I received an email from one reader who regularly follows my blog and who sent me interesting suggestions that can be introduced on the Mr.M blog soon. The last sentence in her letter brought a smile to my face: “Dear Marko, believe me, even the birds know for Friday is the day when you send us your new letters and it is the time to relax, grab favorite drink and candies and enjoy in new fashion stories on Mr.M blog! ”.

I honestly can’t describe my happiness when I read your emails because I’m glad that my blog work brightens someone’s day and that you use your free time to embark with me on fashion adventures and travel adventures around the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful words and I hope that we will hang out so nicely in the years to come!

Today I present to you an interesting brand from Italy that produces knitwear pieces for men. The SVEVO Parma brand is linked to the history of the Somma fashion family, which in the last century turned their production talent into a true art of producing knitwear.

The founder of the brand is Nicola Somma, a skilled knitwear merchant who arrived in 1892 in the Italian city of Bari and opened the doors of his fashion empire in the heart of the city in Via Abate Gimma street with his vision full of intuition and determination.

The origin of the name of the brand itself is inspired by the famous Norman-Swabian (Normanno Svevo in Italian) Castle of Bari.

This fashion story began in Bari, when Mr. Nicola Somma opened a chain of knitwear stores for men and women, not knowing that he started the “fashion wheel” of an Italian company that still focuses on the values of quality and authenticity.

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

More than 60 years ago, in 1958 to be precise, Mr. Nicola, Mario’s son and the eldest son of the third generation of the Somma family, opened a new factory dedicated to women’s knitwear and as an additional production unit of the men’s knitwear collection.

The news of that endeavor at that time was reported by many media in Italy, who described the new supply chain as “classic and delicate fashion steps, where embroidery and weaving are done on old looms with new methods.” With these methods, sweaters, cardigans and other knitted pieces get shine and softness with incomparable quality and do not shrink. ”

In the early 1990s, Nicola ventured into an even more ambitious endeavor, moving to the fashion doors of Parma to write another new chapter in the production history of the Somma family.

In Fidenza, in the historic knitting factory from the 1950s, which was taken over by the Somma family, Nicola starts a new production unit SVEVO together with his son Mario and daughter Vittoria Somma.

In the last 20 years, the company has achieved exceptional results, in Italy and abroad, implementing production capacities and lending its know how technology to the largest luxury fashion houses around the world.

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

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

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

The SVEVO brand is always in constant motion between the conception of new fashion lines and the conquest of new international markets, but the brand still relies on a centralized and direct management strategy. Mr. Mario Somma manages the affairs of the creative, commercial and marketing strategy, while Ms. Vittoria Somma directs the development of the collections and all phases of the production chain of the fashion house SVEVO Parma.

When I received the products, Mr. Mario Somma asked me to describe my first impressions and write it in one sentence, I must admit that it is very difficult to do, but I think I succeeded – “Svevo knitwear is characterized by extraordinary lightness and softness of yarn with impeccable design .”

This brand is in itself elegant and casual, I think it has a timeless art form and value.

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

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

I complemented this unusual combination of sophisticated and urban casual clothing combination that captivates with sporty elegance with a watch from the new redesigned collection Gentlemen Etrier from jewelry house of Schroeder from Luxembourg.

In previous posts, you had the opportunity to see a classic model with a black crocodile bracelet – link 1 and link 2. Today I present a new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” Steel Skeleton watch with self-winding mechanical movement “SW200-1”.

Even this time I had no dilemma which watch I would put on my hand because the Schroeder Etrier Skeleton watch was made as an ideal combination of the inevitable silver color steel case with a bracelet of an unusual cognac color.

For all those who did not follow my previous fashion adventures, this watch is a novelty, so I suggest you read the Schroeder story and get acquainted with this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their unusual story.

I will share with you a small piece of the story of the Schroeder jewelry brand. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it.

The watch you had the opportunity to see in the previous and today’s post is a new model from the classic Gentlemen Etrier collection that got a redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder. The traditional classic with the best Swiss mechanism got a new modern look! You can follow Maison Schroeder on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

I used these wonderful spring days in Berlin to walk my velvet sneakers, which I was a little skeptical at first because I was afraid that velvet would fit my style. The first thing on my mind was maintenance, but as they survived a couple of unexpected rainy walks they have now become my favorite piece!

Of course, the navy blue color with these golden details easily blended in with the other pieces in today’s outfit and the velvet further emphasized the elegant note of this outfit.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another Italian knitwear fashion brand which will explore with us some new fashion trends this spring! Do you have in your closet some interesting knitwear piece that you plan to wear this spring – summer season? How did you like my outfit today? Share with me your opinion!

I really did my best 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 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 simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, 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 ME page. Stay tuned!

With love from Berlin,
Mr.M

Fashion Diary: The Beauty and Elegance of the Inevitable shades of black…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! How are you? This is an question that we forgot to include as one of the most important question for maintaining mental health due to the fast and modern lifestyle and our own daily problems.

I sincerely hope you are well and that you are healthy and safe. Today’s post will be dedicated to one of the most famous colors without which the fashion season cannot pass – black. I believe that there is no person who does not have some piece of clothing or accessories in the simple black color.

“What is the color of your clothes, such is your life”, a favorite statement of a friend of mine that I have known for almost 20 years. This sentence always comes to my mind when it comes time to buy a new piece of clothing or combine a wardrobe for the shooting.

Some scientists have indeed discovered that the colors we prefer are only a reflection of our personality and character. Each of the colors in the palette has a specific meaning and shows what kind of mental circuit you are.

I believe that all of you who have been following my blog for years know that pastel shades, red and blue are my favorite colors and that you have rarely had the opportunity to see me in black and gray tones.

I have to be honest with you and admit that I like to see darker clothes of black and gray tones on other people because I “convinced” myself that it doesn’t suit me because I’m dark and that I have a lighter skin tone so that those darker colors don’t suit me quite well.

My friends tell me that I am exaggerating and that I should wear this color more often because they think it fits me nicely, especially since black and gray “narrow” in the waist, so finally we have something to look forward to with a slightly wider waist!

My today’s outfit is a mixture of street and elegant style. The jacket is a typical piece that all street fashion lovers like to have in their wardrobes. The only difference is the material and the way it is made, so this piece can be presented in some way to fans of elegance style because of its classic black color and beautiful cashmere, which gives this jacket a special elegance.

The turtleneck sweater is a classic piece that each of us has in our wardrobe, regardless of gender, because it is the most comfortable and warmest thing that alleviates these low winter temperatures. This beautiful skateboard is from the new Aida Barni autumn-winter 2021/22 collection.

Today we will learn some characteristics of black color together. If you remember that I mentioned at the very beginning of this blog post, all the colors from the palette have a certain meaning and characterize us as a person.

Research has shown that people who more prefer to wear black do so because they want to give the impression of special authority and power as well. Such people want to leave a good impression and captivate with sophistication, elegance and mystery.

Also, some research has shown that people who wear black are more attractive to others because they give the impression of an emotionally stable person and social stability.

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!

Aida Barni: Timeless Elegance never goes out of fashion…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog. I sincerely hope that you started this new year with more enthusiasm and some better mood. In the coming months, the vaccine will be available in all countries, so we can slowly hope for the return of old life habits and daily small rituals.

I can’t wait to see and hug my dear friends again, whom I haven’t seen for more than a year, and that we will be able to enjoy some of our little joys that make life more interesting.

In the previous post, I started the story of the famous Italian brand Aida Barni, which is a symbol of elegance and sophistication due to its perfect sweaters and fashion accessories made of the highest quality wool – cashmere.

For several days now, I have been receiving your messages asking for advice on how to maintain cashmere items. I believe that each of us owns something that is made of this noble natural material.

Due to its exceptional softness, quality and durability, this material has fascinated people for centuries, but many people are still not instructed on how to properly maintain things made of cashmere.

Cashmere is a material that is pleasant for the skin, light and a good heat saver. I don’t know if you knew that cashmere is even up to eight times warmer than wool. Things made of real cashmere do not change their original shape and colors do not fade, but it is therefore attractive to guests we do not want in our homes – moths.

Cashmere items need to be aired out from time to time, it would be best to periodically take out your favorite cashmere items on your dryers that we have on the terraces to ventilate well and thus reduce the chance of encountering moths.

Did you perhaps know how cashmere is made? Cashmere is obtained from a domestic species of goat that originates from the Kashmir region (a border region located on the border zone of India, Pakistan and China). Cashmere fiber is fine, shiny and elastic.

The natural color of the fibers varies from white to grayish color shades. Once a year, the cashmere goat is combed and then fibers of different lengths are separated. Cashmere is a specific and limited natural raw material.

Each goat produces only a few meters of these precious fibers, which is the main reason for the preciousness of cashmere. Females produce less fiber, but they are also of better quality. The finest mohair fiber is used in the textile industry, for the production of sweaters, scarves, shawls, gloves, hats, coats and coats.

Now we come to the part that interests us all the most, and that is MAINTENANCE instructions. Cashmere items are beautiful, eye-catching and high-quality, and in order to stay that way and attract the eyes of people on the street, you need to follow these tips to maintain:

Washing: I advise you to wash cashmere by hand at a temperature of 20-25 degrees, in a mild solution of lukewarm water and a special detergent for washing wool and silk.

If you can’t find this type of detergent, you can use an ordinary shampoo for children, which is gentle and will not damage the cashmere fibers due to its pH value. Of course, there are specialized detergents for washing cashmere, pH neutral, which prevent swelling and felting of the fabric, but they are a bit more expensive and you need to find them in specialized stores.

Drying: Do not strain, knead or wrap freshly washed cashmere fabrics. After washing, leave the item stretched out on a towel. Do not dry your favorite cashmere items in the tumble dryer, or on the radiator, or expose it directly to sunlight.

Ironing: If you want your cashmere items to be beautiful and soft for years to come, my honest advice is NOT to IRON cashmere items.

The Aida Barni brand is synonymous with the luxury and quality of exclusive cashmere yarn, a material that has fascinated all fashion lovers for centuries.

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.

This time I decided to change the bracelet and show you what this beautiful watch looks like with an elegant black bracelet. If you want to get better acquainted with this brand, read the story of this unusual realm where time and creativity know no boundaries – link.

Today’s post contains the word elegance in its title, and do we know what that term means. Elegance is hard to “mold”, but I will try to present you with some basic definition. Elegance basically means one type of beauty that embodies simplicity.

Elegance is often used as a “measure” of taste, especially in the visual sense, decorative arts, literature, science and aesthetics. Elegant things often show refined grace and suggest a certain maturity, and in the case of aesthetics and science it means a deep understanding of objects and phenomena.

I really tried to prepare this clothing combination 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 take this opportunity to draw your attention to the care and protection of yourself and your beloved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just another bad dream that we have successfully forgotten!

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.

Aida Barni: Italian Sophisticated Dreams are made of cashmere…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! At the very beginning, I would like to wish you all the best! Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart. I hope that all your wishes will come true and that we will stay healthy and happy together with the hope that the new year will bring some new positive things that make us all satisfied.

During this winter season on my blog you had the opportunity to meet some new, interesting fashion brands that deserve to be noticed for their exceptional quality and impressive design.

In the previous months, I presented on my blog a various fashion labels from Italy, such as the fashion house MooRER from romantic Verona and a specialized workshop for making leather gloves Restelli from the Italian capital of fashion – Milan.

Do you know what Annapurna means? Have you ever heard for this word? Annapurna is a name that evokes extraordinary landscapes and in particular, a massif in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal that includes one peak over 8,000 metres where goats grow their thick protective fleece hiding the soft, warm “duvet” that has made them so famous.

Annapurna is also represent an imaginative and fascinating name for a company that produces high quality knitwear made of the finest cashmere. A name of promise then, a symbol of a target to achieve for a woman – Ms. Aida Barni, who decided to enter the business world at the end of the seventies at the top of a difficult sector of the market.

Today is a special day for me because the brand Aida Barni joins to my small fashion network called Mr.M. The Aida Barni brand is synonymous with the luxury and quality of exclusive cashmere yarn, a material that has fascinated all fashion lovers for centuries.

Many years of experience and knowledge about the origin and processing of yarn have enabled the Aida Barni brand to become one of the leading brands of top knits in the fashion world. Aida Barni, an Italian famous designer, has published a book with numerous illustrations that aims to promote her unique brand and cashmere, one of the most precious natural materials in the world.

The Aida Barni brand operates under the company name of the Annapurna fashion group, which was founded in 1978. The Annapurna group has become one of the most famous Italian and world leading manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear. The Annapurna Spa fashion group consists of the Annapurna and Aida Barni brands.

Aida Barni brand uses all kinds of the latest technologies to make cashmere knitwear, forming special looms to the latest and most advanced knitting machines. The current production capacity of Aida Barni and Annapurna brands are about 120,000 pieces per year, which you have to admit is impressive. The entire production process takes place in Italy, more precisely in the company’s headquarters in the Italian city of Prato.

These beautiful gloves which you have opportunity to see in today’s post have arrived from Italy, made in a great combination of cashmere and suede leather, which were made with great love in a family specialized workshop for making gloves. 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! Ms. 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.

Beloved Ématelier masterpiece Jaguar from the limited collection “Kingdom” you previously have seen in my last blog post, which, in addition showing the right time, is also a real little work of art that adorns the hand. I think that this Ématelier Jaguar watch fit perfectly with the rest of this outfit and that this incredible hand-painted dial brought a bit of cheerful colors to this cold winter day.

Of course, as I mentioned at the very beginning of this post, I founded my small and chosen Italian company with the Italian brand MooRER who introduced me to my new friend Morris.

I have to be honest and admit that you’ve seen Morris more than me, but that was justified because this is an exceptional model of jacket that can be worn for a long time because this is a timeless classic model.
