FPM Milano: My Fashionable Black and White World…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to the first February fashion story on the Mr.M blog! I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to all the readers of the Mr.M blog, because they were deprived of a fashion story last Friday. Many of you have sent me messages on social media and emails asking when the story will be published, but I took a little break due to health problems. I sincerely hope you enjoy today’s fashion story.

I believe that you have learned a lot about me by now, and as far as fashion seasons are concerned, you know that the most interesting stories have always been from the autumn-winter period and how much I have a special love for this cold, but also interesting fashion season. Winter is my favorite time of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers”, but we can wear some fashion pieces that will help us brighten up the gloomy winter days.

Today we are meeting again with an interesting Italian brand Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano – FPM. This exclusive Italian brand of leather goods and luggage was founded in 1946. FPM Milano represents the artistic expression of the best Italian talent and aesthetics, as well as excellent expertise. Traditional hand-crafting with the use of top-quality materials is today combined with the innovations of avant-garde metals and modern design.

FPM Milano luggage offers travelers practicality and style, all in one suitcase and backpack. Designed by Marc Sadler, these lightweight aluminum-clad and reinforced suitcases are inspired by vintage trunks, purpose-built to give you the durability you need on your travels. The combination of Avante-Garde materials and Italian design motifs give these FPM suitcases a robust and secure look.

In today’s post, I present to you an exceptional fashion accessory from a special limited collection that was launched on the American market – a leather backpack from the Bank on the Road Econyl® collection that is entirely made in Italy, ideal for business and leisure people, capable to satisfy any practical functional or aesthetic need. The practical inner pocket of the backpack allows you to charge your tablet and smartphone anytime, anywhere. This modern, elegant backpack is made of the highest quality leather with special attention to metal details. Aluminum personalization recalls the innovative creativity of the FPM Bank collection.

In the previous posts, you had the opportunity to see the same model of the backpack, which is made of high-quality and waterproof nylon in a wonderful dark blue – navy color.

I believe that many of you will wonder why I chose a leather backpack of such a light color, when it is a well-known fashion fact that white things can be dirty only “by looking at it”. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to enjoy the color palette of different leather goods, but I have never been able to fulfill my desire to have a light-colored backpack: white, beige or cream. I love bright colors and it’s hard to find leather backpacks in these colors on the market.

When I received an email from the FPM Milano team, I have to admit that when I saw the 3 colors offered: white, cognac (camel) and black, I immediately knew it was fateful. Bank on the road is a backpack model that really proved to be a good friend on my back during my adventures around the world. My navy nylon backpack has traveled with me for more than several tens of thousands of kilometers and after so many years is in very good condition, as you could see a few days ago on the Mr.M blog in one of the previous fashion stories. If you want to remind yourself of some details or by any chance you didn’t get to read the story, you can visit the following link.

As I mentioned a little while ago, this leather model of the Bank on the Road backpack is made in 3 colors: black, cognac (camel) and black. I am confident that everyone will find their favorite color and wear the backpack with great joy, noting that this line of leather Bank on the Road backpacks is available in the American market, so you can ask your friends, acquaintances or maybe if you have some family members who live in territory of the United States of America to assist you in purchasing this backpack model.

Brunello Cucinelli is a famous Italian luxury fashion brand that sells a full range of men’s and women’s clothing and accessories in Europe, North America and East Asia. The company was founded by Mr. Brunello Cuccinelli in 1978. An interesting fact related to the founder of this legendary brand is his outlook on life, as well as his special life philosophy and refined fashion taste, which strongly influenced others. Mr. Brunello Cuccinelli deservedly became one of the most loved people in Italy, but also around the world. For all fashion lovers, he is a symbol of modern entrepreneurship of the 21st century.

How did this fashion story begin? When Brunello Cuccinelli turned 25, he came up with the idea of making cashmere clothes. He wanted to make “Made in Italy” products that are of high quality, with a bit of innovation with a deep respect for traditional craftsmanship. Brunello Cucinelli opened his fashion house in 1978 specializing in Mongolian cashmere clothing for women. In June 2014, owner Brunello Cucinelli transferred ownership of the company in an effort to be supportive and beneficial to his daughters and continue his philanthropic work.

In 2017, Brunello Cuccinelli recorded an incredible record in sales of its fashion range worth 500 million euros, of which 35% in North America. An interesting fact is that the company owns 94 of its 124 branded stores worldwide. In January 2017, Brunello Cuccinelli launched his online store. Last year, the brand began its first foray into the world of perfume by presenting two fragrances designed with Euroitalia, a company specialized in the creation and distribution of luxury perfumes.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see the shearling coat, which is a piece from the new FW 23/24 collection. The production of the shearling coat is exceptional and it is important to note that it is handmade using natural materials that support sustainable fashion.

Mauro Ottaviani is an iconic Italian brand of refined premium knitwear that warms fashion lovers all over Europe and the world with its incredible pieces! How to describe this Italian brand in 3 words? Passion, innovation and coherence. These are associations for the Mauro Ottaviani brand, which aims to provide a concrete answer to the needs of modern men, who are used to dynamic rhythms, yet capable of appreciating the values of quality and design. The search for raw materials became a central element, following the philosophy that high performance is obtained when design and functionality are perfectly balanced.

How did this brand come about? The roots of this fashion house date back to 1978, when Raniero Ottaviani founded what is still the production core of today’s company – passion and love for knitwear. A few years later, in 1993 to be exact, Raniere’s three children – Mauro, Simona and Elena – took over the group, inspired by their father’s work, but looking for a way to develop it in order to take the family legacy even further.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see a 100% cashmere roll top, model WS28037 MAKALU. This winter, Mauro Ottaviani has prepared models made of 16 types of fibers and materials for all lovers of quality and refined knitwear. The roll you see on me is made of pure cashmere.

Pure cashmere is the basic yarn of luxury knitwear, it has a soft and silky texture, it is also firm, but also extremely pleasant to the touch. Classic, timeless and exciting material. This yarn is obtained from the fleece of the Hircus goat, and has the following essential characteristics: isothermal (maintains a stable body temperature), hygroscopic (breathable) and antistatic (does not attract dust). The comfort of wearing cashmere clothes knows no bounds. This type of yarn is inherently brilliant and provides perfect color definition. All the colors are strikingly bright and fascinating, especially the white, which embodies the purity of the fiber, as you can see in my fashion story today.

The Mauro Ottaviani brand specializes as a high-level service that offers quality support to its customers, who are among the most demanding names in Italian and international menswear. The company’s geographical location in the heart of the Umbrian production region guarantees access to superior craftsmanship and the expertise of a great culture and tradition.

If you want to stay updated and find out what the Mauro Ottaviani knitwear brand has prepared for the new winter season, visit their official website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Since the whole outfit was in a certain elegant tone, I decided to wear my favorite Salvatore Ferragamo in croc leather. I must admit that they completed this outfit in an unusual way. Of course, the black color fits perfectly with the colors that prevail in my wardrobe. Ferragamo is a famous Italian brand that is at the very top of the fashion industry and has conquered the fashion scene. After several years of success, he managed to occupy a high position in the world of fashion and is known for the production of the famous women’s Varina ballet flats and men’s sneakers made of exotic leathers.

With their help, the travelogues and fashion stories that you will have the opportunity to read this summer season on the Mr.M blog were created, and I sincerely hope that you will enjoy them.

His modernist and witty take on menswear and womenswear combined with an array of ingenious accessories and awe-inspiring details has made literally every collection a social media phenomenon.

There is one historic milestone that has entered the fashion history books, when he led a pristine white horse down the runway for the spring-summer 2016 collection.

Another huge success for this young French designer was Spring-Summer 2019 collection, when he made his much-anticipated debut for the men’s collection, transporting the fashion world to the sandy shores of Marseille to witness a new fashion movement where everyone is equal. each of us in our sunflower shirt to perhaps go to our wedding or some other fateful “meeting”.

MONCLER: A Brand that was born in the Mountains and lives in the City!

My dear fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! I hope you are well and ready for new fashion adventures! You all know how much I appreciate the beauty and elegance of the color black, but I rarely wear it because I feel that my brown hair color does not suit me very well. I’m interested in your opinion, so tell me after this post how you think the color black looks on me, do you think it suits me?

Moncler is one of the most famous French-Italian luxury fashion houses specializing in ready-to-wear clothing, based in Milan. This fashion story begins as a jacket boutique, after which Moncler expanded to design vests, raincoats, windbreakers, knitwear, leather goods, shoes, perfumes and accompanying fashion accessories. The brand’s core symbol includes a rooster, the monogram “M”, a badge with felt appliqués, crossed skis and a cartoon duck mascot.

The Moncler brand was founded in 1952 in the Alpine town of Monestier-de-Clermont in France. Interestingly, quilted Moncler jackets were used by cold weather workers, mountaineers and skiers across Europe. Italian entrepreneur Remo Ruffini bought the near-bankrupt company in 2003 and moved it to Milan, relaunching Moncler as a global luxury clothing manufacturer.

Mr. Ruffini used his own capital to keep the brand running great and his faith and dedication led to the fashion house reporting an incredible 2 billion in revenue in 2022. The Moncler fashion house’s collaboration with new designers and the purchase of the Stone Island brand has led to an increased presence in street fashion and opening up new opportunities in the fashion world.

This iconic French-Italian brand of winter clothing, which became famous for its unusual warm and modern winter jackets, last year celebrated its 70th birthday in a special way – a special anniversary with a unique campaign “Forever Extraordinary” – Extraordinary Forever. In honor of this special jubilee, fashion house Moncler organized special exhibitions and fashion shows where special limited collections were shown that lasted 70 days. On this occasion, the famous Moncler Maya jacket model has been given a new look and has been redesigned in several new ways as a tribute to this legendary model that Moncler has become known for. The jackets were designed by seven world designers such as Thom Brown, Rick Owens, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Pierpaolo Piccioli, Giambattista Valli, Francesco Ragazzi and Pharrell Williams.

The title of my post today comes from the brand’s slogan “born in the mountains, lives in the city” and it was a true story when the brand was under the creative leadership of Chantal Thomas, when Moncler made a historic transition from the mountains to the city and became an iconic winter brand that produced clothing for the younger generation. The door of luxury to this brand was opened by Mr. Remo Ruffini who started the strategy of globalizing the brand and directed the brand towards the luxury segment of consumers.

Fashion house Moncler has achieved worldwide success that continues to this day, and fashion experts believe that this is due to true respect for its own beginnings and improvement of archival models and active participation in the progress of the community through numerous projects.

What are the famous Moncler collections:

  • Moncler: the main fashion line for men and women
  • Moncler Enfant: children’s clothing collection
  • Moncler Grenoble: a collection of special ski clothing
  • Moncler Gamme Rouge: Moncler haute couture collection designed by Alessandra Facchinetti and then Giambattista Valli. From 2008 to 2018, the collection was presented during Paris Fashion Week. The collaboration and the last collection were concluded with the spring-summer 2018 collection.
  • Moncler Gamme Bleu: men’s collection designed by Thom Browne and presented at Milan Fashion Week. The collaboration and collection were concluded with the spring-summer 2018 launch.
  • Moncler About: Collaboration between Moncler and Off-White with Virgil Abloh (Fall-Winter 2016-17 and Spring-Summer 2017 collections)
  • Moncler C – Collide: Collaboration between Moncler and British designer Craig Green (Autumn-Winter 2017-18 and Spring-Summer 2018 collections).
  • Moncler Genius: Mr. Remo Ruffini conceived the Moncler Genius project in 2018, where designers create collections interpreting Moncler’s identity that are launched on a monthly basis.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see the legendary Moncler Maya jacket made of the finest black leather. The jacket has an extraordinary amount of elegance, although I had the feeling when I saw it in the catalog that it was a sports jacket. My guess is that this model of the legendary sports winter jacket in a leather version is completely different and has a touch of elegance and refinement.

We continue our fashion journey through Italian fashion and today we are meeting again with one interesting brand on the Mr.M blog – Mauro Ottaviani. How to describe this Italian brand in 3 words? Passion, innovation and coherence. These are associations for the Mauro Ottaviani brand, which aims to provide a concrete answer to the needs of modern men, who are used to dynamic rhythms, yet capable of appreciating the values of quality and design.

Initially, the group specialized as a high-level service offering quality support to its customers, who are among the most demanding names in Italian and international menswear. The company’s geographical location in the heart of the Umbrian production region guarantees access to superior craftsmanship and the expertise of a great culture and tradition.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see Mauro OttavianiCASHLIGHT is a 100% premium ultrafine cashmere that combines the carded appearance of classic cashmere with the light and compact properties due to the twisting of carded cashmere yarns with brushed cashmere yarns. The sweater model you see on me is CL24504 – ROMA POLO made of Cashlight finest cashmere. In the next post, I will write more about this knitwear brand.
