ZEGNA: The Beauty of the Refined Elegance of Linen…

My dear fashioniastas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. I hope you are well and ready for a new dose of fashion. We start today’s fashion adventure with new friends of Mr.M blog – ZEGNA. Ermenegildo Zegna, also known as Zegna or Ermenegildo Zegna Group is an Italian luxury fashion house. It was founded in 1910 in Triver, Biella, in the Piedmont region of northern Italy.

How did this exceptional Italian brand come about? Before founding the company, founder Ermenegildo Zegna’s father, Mr. Angelo, a former watchmaker, owned a woolen mill and looms in the Piedmont Alps, Italy. Ermenegildo, together with his brothers Edoardo and Mario, founded the company in 1910 in Triver in the Biellese Alps when he was only 18 years old, using his father’s looms and family property. A few years later, in 1915 to be precise, the company was renamed Fratelli Zegna di Angelo.

Zegna’s vision was to create high-quality fabrics, so he began to source wool directly from several countries around the world, such as Mongolia, Australia, South Africa, in addition to buying modern machines from England that enabled quality fabric production. During the interwar period, Zegna’s business began to flourish. In the late 1920s, the Lanificio (wool mill) employed more than 700 workers, which number grew to more than 1,000 in the late 1930s.

Not long after, in 1938, the company began exporting fabrics to the USA, through its subsidiary Zegna Woollens Corporation established in New York. Soon, in 1942, Ermenegildo’s sons Aldo and Angelo joined the family business of the company, which was renamed Ermenegildo Zegna and Sons. In the mid-1950s, the company employed over 1,400 workers.

Ermenegildo Zegna’s sons, Aldo and Angelo, took over the company in the mid-1960s. Under their leadership, the brand expanded its business into ready-to-wear and established new factories and distribution networks abroad. In 1968, the first factory for the production of sleeves and trousers was opened in Novara, followed by Spain, Greece and Switzerland. Sales and marketing departments have also been established in France, Germany, Great Britain and the USA. In the 1970s, Zegna launched its tailor-made service called Su Misura.

Zegna’s attention to wool quality continued in the 1960s and 1970s, as the company established the Wool Awards in Australia (1963) and the Mohair Trophy in South Africa (1970). The international development strategy led by the Zegna brothers led to the opening of the first owned boutique in Paris in 1980 and then in Milan in 1985. In the 1990s, more precisely in 1991, Zegna became the first luxury brand to open a boutique in China.

In the 1990s, the third generation of the Zegna family entered the business. Angelo’s son and namesake of the company’s founder, Ermenegildo “Gildo” Zegna, became CEO of Zegna Group in 1997, while his cousin Paolo was appointed president of Zegna Group. Under their leadership, the company embarked on a strategy of brand expansion and full verticalization. The first major recorded success was in 1991, when Zegna was the first luxury brand to enter the Chinese market, with a flagship store in Beijing and one of the first to enter the Indian market.

The ZEGNA brand has always been a favorite in the celebrity world. Numerous actors and models have advertised Zegna’s lines over the years. Celebrities featured in Zegna’s advertising campaigns are Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody, American model Ryan Burns, Irish actor Jamie Dornan, English actor Sam Reilly. In 2017, Ermenegildo Zegna launched a four-chapter campaign called Defining Moments. Robert De Niro, McCaul Lombardi, Benjamin Millepied, Park Chan-wook, Yoo Ji-tae, Wang Deshun, Sunny Wang, Javier Bardem, Dev Patel participated in the campaign. Two years later, in 2019, Zegna launched a new campaign, “What does it mean to be a man today?”, featuring Mahershala Ali and Nicholas Tse, focused on the definition of modern masculinity.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see two interesting pieces from the latest ZEGNA SS24 collection: a linen shirt and jeans. The shirt is made of the highest quality linen in a gentle drape shade with stripes of different colors, while the jeans are in my favorite ivory (beige) color, which is simply the best color for the summer season because of its simple combination with all other colors from various palettes.

Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply iconic, shoes for all times! You had the opportunity to meet their most famous model Brera for the first time in my Jordan fashion stories. What is the story of this brand? In the middle of the 20th century, more precisely in 1945, Mr. Renzo Rossetti started his story from scratch, where he worked alone to cut leather for several types of sports shoes. His shoes were sold at the famous Brigatti store in Milan, one of the few remaining stores of its kind in the city. After a few years, Fratelli Rossetti saw success, but, wanting to develop further, they transferred the brands and equipment for this special production to Atala Sport in Padua.

So they decided to start their story again from the beginning and decided to switch to the production of classic shoes. Those were the years between 1952 and 1957, which witnessed the orientation and acquisition of new skills in the creation of women’s ballet flats and elegant, simple men’s footwear characterized by extremely flexible and high-quality workmanship. All this led to the creation of a small collection of men’s shoes with contours that differed from the various styles sold at the time. Renzo Rossetti consequently engaged in work that demonstrated his aesthetic sense and artistic perfectionism.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for men has timeless classic lines that you can find all year in their offer, some of the models are: Brera, Brera Sport, Hobo Sport, Yacht, La Giusta, Estate and Green Side.

In today’s post, I present one of the iconic Brera models. Brera is the bohemian quarter of Milan where, in the sixties of the last century, sculptors, painters and writers struggled to leave their mark with a new language and new forms. The liberal and cosmopolitan spirit was the source of inspiration for “Brera”, a moccasin with tassels, a style revolution in a country that is just rediscovering its joy of life. Brera combines different materials and colors as a true work of art. The special composition of materials and shapes makes moccasins a successful chapter in the history of Fratelli Rossetti.

Today you have the opportunity to see the famous Brera moccasins in brown color made of soft open-weave leather with evenly spaced holes in the upper part. Special high-quality processing and production. These moccasins have a hand-dyed leather sole. The shoes are handmade in Italy, like all other Fratelli Rossetti shoes.

If you want to stay freshly updated and find out which models of shoes and leather goods the Fratelli Rossetti brand has in its offer, visit their official online store and follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

Roberto Cavalli: A Symbol of Enchanting Casual Sporty Elegance…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. We start today’s fashion adventure with old friends of the Mr.M blog – Roberto Cavalli. I am sure that there is no person in the world, regardless of whether he knows the world of fashion, but this iconic Italian fashion house is well known to everyone. It is a brand that you simply cannot be indifferent to, especially because of its impressive creations that have conquered the very top of the world fashion scene for decades.

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 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.

Mr. Roberto Cavalli studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. His grandfather was a prominent painter of the Macchiaioli group. His fashion career began in the 1960s. Working in his own silk printing press, he began to apply a new painting technique to fully made garments, which later resulted in garment dyeing techniques. During the 1970s, he continued to experiment with other materials, mainly leather.

Mr. Cavali’s debut collection was held in Paris in 1970, where he proudly displayed his leather patchwork designs, created in collaboration with Mario Valentino. In 1972, he presented his patchwork designs applied to jeans at the first Roberto Cavalli women’s collection show at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the main pret-a-porter event in Italy at the time. His work has attracted many global fashion houses, including Hermès, Pierre Cardin, Krizia and Emilio Pucci.

You must be wondering what the Patchwork technique is? Patchwork is a very interesting technique that has been known since ancient times. The oldest found patchwork works date back to the ancient Chinese civilization, and traces of such works were found in the famous Egyptian tombs.

Fans of this technique also call it “painting with rags”, and the word itself is of English origin and is composed of two words, patch-rag, and work-rad. Patchwork is a special technique of creative sewing, where different fabrics are combined with certain patterns and create decorative units. By combining materials of different geometric shapes, textures, colors, patterns and joining them together, you can make things for the home like bedspreads, cushions, rugs, refresh your furniture, make or refresh old fashion pieces and the like.

The basic way of working with patchwork is to cut and join different shapes and wholes. However, what should be emphasized is that with this technique, precision in work is very important. Each piece of patchwork fabric that is cut must be precisely measured and cut so that there are no mistakes and omissions in the further work.

The 1994 collection at Milan Fashion Week staged a new vision of the Cavalli woman: playful tiger and wild animal motifs applied to jeans, printed clothing, embroidered fur and long, sumptuous dresses that elegantly revealed the woman’s body. Animal print has become a recognizable element of the Italian fashion house Cavalli. Later, sandblasted denim came out and the fashion house was the first to show lycra stretch jeans.

New clothing lines were launched on the market: Just Cavalli, Angels & Devils (renamed Roberto Cavalli Junior) and Class Cavalli. The first Roberto Cavalli mono-brand boutique was opened in Venice in 1996. At the end of 2001, the brand was distributed in more than 30 countries, including the United States, Asia and Russia.

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 jacket you have the opportunity to see in today’s fashion story is a rebellious fashion response to current fashion trends. This runway piece, masterpiece is crafted from the finest reindeer leather with an arctic fox collar (which I took off for the purpose of taking pictures this time) from the latest Autumn/Winter collection.

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

  • Roberto Cavalli: a historic collection of evening dresses. This is the first line of the brand and the new era has introduced everyday clothing and accessories, including shoes, handbags, leather goods and jewelry.
  • Just Cavalli: brand launched in 1998, this is a more affordable line compared to haute couture lines.
  • Cavalli Class: a line of clothing and fashion accessories for women and men.
  • Roberto Cavalli Junior: the brand’s line for boys and girls.
  • Roberto Cavalli Home: officially presented in 2012 at the Salone del Mobile di Milano, the interior collections were developed in collaboration with Made in Italy partners. Home furnishing line: a line of furniture, wallpaper, tiles, home textiles, lamps and accessories made of Made in Murano glasses.

The Loro Piana company has three divisions (textile divisions): a division that deals with the production of high-quality materials using precious fibers such as cashmere and baby cashmere, vicuna, linen and merino wool, a division that deals with the creation of luxury fashion items (production and distribution of men’s, women’s clothing, footwear and fashion accessories) and the interior design department – production and distribution of interior design products.

In today’s post you have the chance to see a special item, a turtleneck sweater from the latest men’s Loro Piana Autumn-Winter 2023/24 collection, which is just a small piece of my favorites this season due to their signature elegance and my love for neutral colors.

Jacket: Roberto Cavalli

Turtleneck sweater: Loro Piana

Jeans: Jacob Cohën

Boots: Johnstons of Elgin x Joseph Cheaney

I made an effort to complete this outfit with the famous Jacob Cohën jeans, which perfectly fit into this outfit. Classic jeans are always the best and absolutely foolproof choice when it comes to spring fashion for men.

The story of the Jacob Cohën brand begins with a man who believed in one dream! The fashion empire that opened its doors in 1985, guided by the intuition of Tato Bardelle, achieved thanks to the creative genius of his son Nicola Bardelle in the early 2000s, is divided and continued today by the creative direction of his wife Jennifer Tommasi-Bardelle.

The brand was originally conceived as a luxury denim collection handmade in Italy, where this material was first proposed as a status symbol in history, thus anticipating the concept of a casual everyday look that will soon become “mandatory” style.

Jacob Cohën is one of the brands that has always continuously invested in modernization of production and market research, in order to provide its customers with exclusive quality and exceptional comfort.

Today, Jacob Cohën has become a reference point for everyday luxury understood as a way of thinking, living and dressing. If you want to understand the essence of the brand, Jacob Cohën represents the cult of luxury denim, which means a simple way of life.

The boots that served as inspiration for today’s outfit were handmade in the workshop of the famous British shoemaker Joseph Cheaney, who in collaboration with Johnstons of Elgin created a special collection of shoes. It was a great pleasure for me to walk in these unusual boots that have a palette of colors that are current this season: dark brown, drape and cognac.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of another spring fashion story, where together we discovered the beauty and splendor of Italian fashion with the iconic fashion house Roberto Cavalli, elegance and prestige with the luxury Italian brand Loro Piana, practical everyday fashion with the denim fashion brand Jacob Cohën , partners with whom fashion stories are a real adventure. I sincerely hope you got some inspiration for your ideal spring outfit!

VERSACE: The Story of Iconic Fashion Pieces with Impressive Details…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. We start today’s fashion adventure with new friend of the Mr.M blog – Versace. I am sure that there is no person in the world who does not know the world of fashion, but this iconic Italian fashion house definitely has to be included in the knowledge category of the general information test. It is a brand that you simply cannot be indifferent to, especially because of its impressive creations that have conquered the very top of the world fashion scene for decades.

How did this iconic brand come about? Gianni Versace, now officially rebranded as Versace, is an Italian luxury fashion brand founded by Gianni Versace in 1978. This fashion company produces Italian ready-to-wear and accessories, as well as haute couture under its signature Atelier Versace brand line. Gianni Versace is a native of Calabria, a city located in the ancient ancient region of Magna Grecia (Great Greece). Interestingly, the Versace logo was inspired by Medusa, a figure from Greek mythology.

Back in 1972, Gianni Versace designed his first collections for the Callaghan, Genni and Complice brands. A few years later, in 1978 to be precise, a fashion line named “Gianni Versace Donna” was launched and opened its first boutique in the famous Via della Spiga street in Milan. Mr. Versace independently controlled much of the brand, from design to retail. In 1981, the house of Versace introduced its first perfume, Gianni Versace for women, while in 1982 the company expanded its range to include accessories, jewelry, home furnishings and porcelain. Mrs. Donatella Versace (Mr. Gianni’s sister) added the Young Versace and Versus lines in 1993, and from 1994, Mrs. Donatella became the co-designer of the Gianni Versace fashion line.

One of the most important turning points in the work of this fashion house is 1994, when the brand gained international fame with the famous black Versace dress of Elizabeth Hurley, which is called “that dress” in the media. Versace has designed for various musical artists, including performance costumes and album covers for Elton John in 1992 and clothing for Michael Jackson. Versace also designed clothes for Princess Diana of Wales (Lady Di) and Princess Caroline of Monaco.

After the assassination of Gianni Versace in 1997, his sister Donatella Versace, a former vice president, took over as creative director, and his older brother Santo Versace became CEO of the Versace fashion house. Donatella’s daughter Allegra Versace was left with a 50 percent stake in the company, which she took over on her eighteenth birthday. The next important milestone by which we will all remember this brand is the year 2000, when one creation, an interesting green Versace dress worn by Jennifer Lopez at the Grammy Awards, attracted a lot of media attention.

The dress was named the fifth most legendary dress of all time, and Elizabeth Hurley’s black Versace dress was named the most iconic dress of all time, according to a 2008 Daily Telegraph poll. Starting in 2014, a gradual sale of shares in the company began, until 2018, when the company was completely sold to the fashion conglomerate that owns the famous American brand Michael Kors. Mrs. Donatella Versace remained in the position of creative director.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you a special and unique winter jacket made of burgundy velvet. The material has an optical illusion of crumpled velvet that adds refinement and elegance. Burgundy color always occupies a special place in the fashion world and it can be said that this color is timeless and never goes out of fashion.

Today we continue the story of the Egyptian fashion brand MEROË, which managed to show potential customers that there is real fashion stress relief with its simplicity and practicality. Every MEROË piece of clothing is made with love and to last more than one season.

On one occasion Ms. Sara Dawood stated: “For me the process never stops, the design process is constant, it is constant everywhere. I design from life experiences, art, movies, music, places I’ve visited, people I’ve met along the way. In the end, I learned about their culture and traditions, and then learned from them. I taste, see and feel culture in its raw form.”

MEROË is on a mission of rational consumption, which means that the brand is working to change the perspective of the industry from fast to slow fashion, so that the MEROË brand will provide pieces that can be worn and loved for longer.

AIDA BARNI: Discover the Refinement of Luxury Italian Knitwear…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. I started today’s fashion adventure with old friends, I’m sure you remember the brand Aida Barni, which is synonymous with the perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Last season we enjoyed the beauty of bright colors, while this year I decided to refresh cold winter days with pastel colors. In today’s fashion story I will share with you an unusual knitwear piece from their new winter collection!

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the fall-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.

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.

The turtleneck sweater with zipper with 2 front pockets you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni FW23 collection, a wonderful shades of taupe and white colors and is made of pure cashmere. Refreshing colors for the new season!

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.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Giorgio Armani, the Difference Between Style and Fashion is Quality

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my new fashion story on the pages of the Mr.M blog. I’m really glad that you like my take on fashion and that I inspire many women in their prime to change their minds and bring some novelty into their lives.

Today I will introduce you to one of my favorite Italian designers, Mr. Giorgio Armani. Giorgio Armani S.p.A., better known as Armani, is an Italian luxury fashion house founded in Milan by Mr. Giorgio Armani that designs, manufactures, distributes and sells haute couture, ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes, accessories and home interiors. In addition to the Armani Prive couture line, Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani are the company’s ready-to-wear lines that are shown at Milan Fashion Week. Armani Collezioni, Armani Exchange and Armani Jeans are sold at lower prices.

Giorgio Armani (full name of the brand line: Giorgio Armani Borgonuovo) is a top brand specializing in men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, glasses, cosmetics and perfumes. This line is available only in Giorgio Armani boutiques, specialized luxury multi-brand stores and selected high-end department stores worldwide. The logo is a curved “G” ending in a curved “A”, forming a circle. In 2001, Armani created a joint venture with Vestimento to produce the Borgonuovo men’s and women’s line.

How was the Armani fashion empire created? Mr. Armani and his partner, the architect Sergio Galeotti, founded Giorgio Armani SpA in 1975. After years of success, in 2001, Mr. Armani commissioned architect Tadao Anda to transform the old Nestle chocolate factory in Milan’s Savona/Tortona area into the company’s headquarters. Also, in the early 2000s, Armani opened five megastores, starting with the opening of the Armani/Manconi store in Milan in 2000, which houses all of the company’s brands. Other such spaces are in Hong Kong (Armani/Chater House, opened 2002), Munich (Armani/Funf Hof, opened 2003), Tokyo (Armani/Ginza Tower, opened 2007) and New York (Armani/Fifth Avenue, opened 2009).

Like every woman, I am a big fan of large size bags made of exotic leathers and when I saw this bag in the Giorgio Armani catalog for the Spring-Summer collection, I could just imagine my new ideal outfits to wear with this perfect bag. a bag. Navy has always been an indispensable summer navy color that every famous fashion brand has in their spring and summer collections. The bag is made of real python skin, of exceptional quality, with a distinctive pendant featuring the recognizable Giorgio Armani logo.

In the following fashion stories, we will have the opportunity to see together how this bag fits perfectly with summer dresses and some bright colors, since the dark color is extremely simple and easy to combine, which eases small fashion troubles for all women in their prime!

If you want to know more about the Giorgio Armani brand, as well as other lines of brands from the Armani family, visit their official website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Loro Piana is an Italian company specialised in clothing and textile products. This fashion house is considered the largest producer of cashmere and also the world’s largest artisanal company processing the luxury fiber.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see three pieces from the latest women’s Loro Piana Fall – Winter 2023 collection, which is just a small fraction of my favorites this season because of its distinctive elegance and my love for red and navy colors. Red is the color of happiness and joy, that’s why I decided to complement the dark color with this fresh shade of red. The navy pants are perfect for all occasions and can easily be combined with other colors, they are made of pure baby cashmere, as is the navy scarf.

Today I will continue story about new friends of the Mr.M blog who have managed to bring together exquisite luxury artisan crafts, Italian passion and exquisite Neapolitan craftsmanship. Artigiano del Guanto (ADG) is an artisan glove workshop active in the northern part of Naples, founded by Giovanni Ricciardiello, an experienced glove maker for 10 decades, a historical exponent of the tradition of the ancient Neapolitan glove makers. A few years ago, in 2016 to be precise, the laboratory was renovated and with it the brand was born: Artigiano Del Guanto.

Today, Artigiano Del Guanto is no longer a “simple” workshop of artisan gloves, but a family company in which the new generation of heirs Francesco, Mimmo and Flora, Giovanni’s children stand out, who, with the indispensable presence of their father, in addition to the brand, renewed the production chain with a completely new styles and models, connected with new modern communication channels, in order to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding customer. Over the years, the Artigiano Del Guanto collections have attracted the attention of very prestigious international high fashion brands such as Giorgio Armani, MaxMara, Coccinelle and Pinko, with whom today the Ricciardiello family’s ADG artisan glove laboratory proudly collaborates as an official manufacturer.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you unusual gloves Electra GKJ-02130. This model of women’s gloves is made of lambskin, with a heart on the back, applied using a matrix and hand sewing. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

Because of the bright tones of this outfit, I decided to show you another pair of Artigiano Del Guanto gloves, which went perfectly with this outfit. Model T.Kuribayashi Gloves (GKJ-02126) are gloves with interlocking laces and knots on the back that intertwine at the wrist, completely handmade in the Artigiano Del Guanto laboratories from lambskin leather. Why did these gloves get an unusual name? The ADG team wanted to pay tribute to a great historical figure, Tadamichi Kuribayashi, a Japanese general known for commanding Japanese forces at the Battle of Iwo Jima. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

As this is a purely artisan glove, made by hand, it is available in every size or color shown in the product listing. Sometimes the possibility of “Express delivery” is guaranteed for the color visible in the product photo. In order to receive a glove in one of the colors available on the company’s color card, the artisan production time with shipping included can take up to 15 days.

This time I decided to complete my outfit with shoes from the Italian brand Tod’s. There is no person who has not resisted wearing shoes of this famous Italian fashion house, regardless of whether it is a person of female or male gender, Tod’s shoes are loved by the whole planet because of their refined elegance and incredible comfort. The shoes from today’s fashion story are an iconic model with a gold-colored T metal logo, while the shoes are made of dark-navy croco embossed leather.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you some fashion pieces from my favorite Italian brand – Max Mara. Max Mara is a world famous Italian fashion brand. It was founded in 1951 in Reggio Emilia by Mr. Achille Maramotti. This legendary brand sponsors and awards the Max Mara Women’s Art Award. Achille Maramotti began creating wardrobes in 1947, and officially founded the Max Mara fashion house in 1951. How did the brand name come about?

The second word of the brand – “Mara” was derived from Mr. Maramotti surname, while “Max” referred to Count Max, a local legend, who was rarely sober, but always so classy and stylish! Mr. Maramotti was one of the first to see that the future of women’s fashion lay in the mass production of designer quality clothing. He also wanted to put his Max Mara brand at the top in front of the names of individual designers, although he hired Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Dolce & Gabbana, Narciso Rodriguez and Anne Marie Beretta. The company is still in the hands of the family and is one of the best family fashion businesses in the world.

The Max Mara group has 35 brands in its fashion empire, of which the Max Mara brand remains the heart of the company to this day. Other brands include Sportmax, Sportmax Code, Weekend Max Mara, Marella, Pennyblack, iBlues, MAX&Co. and Marina Rinaldi. An interesting information is that Marina Rinaldi is a brand founded in 1980 and named after the greatmother of Mr. Maramotti.

Max Mara is my favorite brand because it absolutely meets my criteria when it comes to wardrobe, which are: quality, interesting models and cuts, good selection of materials, as well as fine processing of materials. Today I decided to show you a turtleneck sweater of this timeless Italian brand. The turtleneck sweater is made of the finest cashmere with metal details.

If you want to know more about the Italian fashion house Max Mara and discover what the Maramotti family has prepared for the new fashion season, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. See you soon with some new and more interesting fashion stories. I will try not to take long breaks and I hope you understand the reason for my unexpected absence after failed cosmetic surgery in Egypt, but there will be time to make up for everything and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Special note: All my photos from today’s post have been additionally and specially processed to meet the expectations of blog friends, as well as the readers themselves while respecting the aesthetics and guidelines of fashion photography. Unfortunately, the face and neck lifting operations did not go well and due to the negligence of the medical team from Egypt, I suffered serious aesthetic and health consequences. In agreement with my legal team, I will soon tell you the whole story so that you will fully understand the reason for my long absence from the blog, because you deserve to know the truth and all the details.

Best Regards,

Loro Piana: Casualness and Refinement as Symbols of Prestige…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. Today we are again meeting again with a famous and iconic Italian brand, Loro Piana, and I present to you my favorite piece from their new winter collection. The special deer leather jacket that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is a model that can always be found in every Loro Piana collection, only in accordance with fashion trends some new color palettes are introduced and some new interesting details are added.

Chocolate brown is back in fashion this season, a color that has found itself in the spotlight this fashion season and I tried to combine it with my new Aida Barni houndstooth pattern sweater from their new winter collection.

Loro Piana is an Italian company specialised in clothing and textile products. This fashion house is considered the largest producer of cashmere and also the world’s largest artisanal company processing the luxury fiber.

The Loro Piana company has three divisions (textile divisions): a division that deals with the production of high-quality materials using precious fibers such as cashmere and baby cashmere, vicuna, linen and merino wool, a division that deals with the creation of luxury fashion items (production and distribution of men’s, women’s clothing, footwear and fashion accessories) and the interior design department – production and distribution of interior design products.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see a brown leather jacket from the latest Loro Piana FW23 collection, which is just a small part of my favorites this season due to its distinctive elegance and my love for pastel colors. Crafted from the finest deerskin and lined with baby cashmere, this exquisite dark brown jacket is perfect for the man who pays attention to detail and leaves nothing to chance. Camel trousers are perfect for all occasions and can be easily combined with other colors. They are made of pure baby cashmere.

If you want to stay updated and find out which pieces the Loro Piana brand has in its offer, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Today’s fashion adventure continues in Italian style with our old friends, I’m sure you remember the brand Aida Barni, which is synonymous with the perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Last season we enjoyed the beauty of bright colors, while this year I decided to paint cold winter days with pastel colors. Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical during winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater as a gift, it is a gift from the heart because a cashmere sweater carries with it a certain symbolism.

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.

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.

The sweater with houndstooth check pattern you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni FW23 collection, a wonderful camel – beige color and is made of pure cashmere. Refreshing color for the new season!

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.

My dear fashionistas and travelers, welcome to another fashion story on the Mr.M blog in 2024!

Microperforated leather in red color, the model is characterized by the presence of flaps and covered buckles. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

When ordering, it is necessary to specify the main shade of the glove when choosing a color, and in the notes to add information about another shade to make a two-color version, if it is a two-color product, as I did.

Otherwise, simply specify your preferred one favorite color when ordering monocolor pair of gloves.

AIDA BARNI: Feel the Finest Cashmere from the Heart of Italy…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to the first fashion story on the Mr.M blog in 2024! Winter is my favorite period of the year, when we are able to dress in “layers” and when we can take out our favorite knitwear pieces from our wardrobes that keep us warm during the lower winter temperatures.

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

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the fall-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.

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.

The turtleneck sweater with zipper you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni FW23 collection, a wonderful camel color and is made of pure cashmere. Refreshing color for the new season!

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.

All the people who have been following my blog for years know that I have a great love for Burberry trench-coats and coats, honestly I don’t even know how many of their fashion pieces I own anymore, but I know that this is my one of the favorite colors that I always like to wear – the color of tobacco. Soft pastel golden tobacco color that blends very easily with other colors.

Burberry trenchcoats and coats represent the pinnacle of world fashion and have become indispensable fashion classics today. These coats were created by the founder of the Burberry company, Thomas Burberry, more than 100 years ago, inspired by the British heritage, and at the same time introduced elements of urban fashion.

You can find all classic Burberry coats in 5 basic models: Legendary Kensington, Westminster, Chelsea, Waterloo and Pimlico. All models are named after London districts. What is the difference between these models?

The Kensington – a classic model with a modern cut that easily adapts to any silhouette. The most popular model, which is available in four basic colors: gray, navy, honey color (camel) and black. Also, this model is made in two lengths. The coat you see on me today is this model.

The Westminster – a model that is extended (oversized) and lightly cut for a draped silhouette. Basic colors: honey color (camel) and dark green (khaki). Also, this model is made in two lengths.

The Chelsea – a model characterized by a slim fit (narrow form close to the body) with narrow shoulders and a cut waist. The basic colors are honey and taupe and it is also available in two lengths.

The Waterloo – A more comfortable fit, a longer model than the classic with a subtle and relaxed fit that is ideal for layering. This model is usually made in three basic colors: maroon, black and honey-camel and is available in only one length.

The Pimlico, a simple flat cut decorated with a single-row fastening of a minimalistic character and a modern cut. This model is usually made in navy, biscuit (biscuit color) and honey color – camel. This model is also only available in one classic length.

I would like to note that all the listed colors are only classics that are always produced, but the Burberry company introduces seasonal colors to enrich its offer.

Most Burberry coats have been hand-crafted in Castleford, Yorkshire for over 50 years from gabardine – a revolutionary fabric that Thomas Burberry proudly introduced in 1879. Polished, light and practical, beautiful cotton resistant to all kinds of weather conditions that remains at the heart of the Burberry brand to this day.

The classic coat model originated and developed from the basic form of the Tielocken coat, which was patented in 1912 by Thomas Burberry. A simple but refined unique shape that has been adapted over the years and has become a recognizable Burberry coat.

Each Burberry coat is special and has its own story – one that is made to last and write new pages of life’s chapters together with you. Buying a Burberry trench or coat is an investment, it is a fashion piece that can really be worn nicely and for a long time with proper maintenance and it is a thing you can leave for generations to come. I inherited my first Burberry coat from my grandfather and today I keep it carefully and wear it on special occasions because it has a special sentimental value for me.

When the time comes to buy a Burberry trench, it’s a big deal and especially if you are buying a coat for the first time it is very important to buy a “iconic” piece that you can combine with your items from your wardrobe and it is best to buy a coat in your favorite color, without blindly following trends.

The trench coat or a coat are pieces that are worn over other pieces of clothing, so it is best to look at your favorite pieces of clothing and shoes before buying and judge for yourself which are the two or three colors that might come into consideration when buying a coat. The color of tobacco is a neutral color and blends with other colors with great ease, but each of us knows our wardrobe best and you may find the ideal solution since buying a Burberry coat is a real investment.

In today’s blog post you have the opportunity to see a classic model of the Kensington coat made of the finest cashmere in the color of tobacco, which in my honest opinion is one of the most beautiful colors and the easiest to match with other pieces of clothing from your wardrobe.

Did we fit in nicely at the end? Honestly, I believe we are. After so many years of loyalty to this British brand and because of my personal interest, I have learned a lot about their offer and I am lucky to always be able to show my favorite pieces from the fashion house Burberry on my blog.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: ADG, the Beauty of Wearable Luxury Italian Handicrafts

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my last fashion story on the pages of the Mr.M blog in 2023. I’m really glad that you like my take on fashion and that I’ve inspired many women in their prime to change their minds and bring some novelty into their lives.

I would like to take this special opportunity to wish you a happy New Year and Christmas holidays, to spend them in peace and prosperity with those you love. I wish you all the best in the new year, and leave all that was bad behind you and don’t forget to fill the years with life, not life with years. I sincerely hope that you will achieve all that you want, acquire all that you have not so far and save the most valuable things that you need for true happiness. Happy New Year!

I am happy to have the opportunity to introduce you to the new friends of the Mr.M blog who have succeeded in bringing together exquisite luxury artisan crafts, Italian passion and exquisite Neapolitan craftsmanship. Artigiano del Guanto (ADG) is an artisan glove workshop active in the northern part of Naples, founded by Giovanni Ricciardiello, an experienced glove maker for 10 decades, a historical exponent of the tradition of the ancient Neapolitan glove makers. A few years ago, in 2016 to be precise, the laboratory was renovated and with it the brand was born: Artigiano Del Guanto.

Today, Artigiano Del Guanto is no longer a “simple” workshop of artisan gloves, but a family company in which the new generation of heirs Francesco, Mimmo and Flora, Giovanni’s children stand out, who, with the indispensable presence of their father, in addition to the brand, renewed the production chain with a completely new styles and models, connected with new modern communication channels, in order to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding customer. Over the years, the Artigiano Del Guanto collections have attracted the attention of very prestigious international high fashion brands such as Giorgio Armani, MaxMara, Coccinelle and Pinko, with whom today the Ricciardiello family’s ADG artisan glove laboratory proudly collaborates as an official manufacturer.

What does a working day look like at the Artigiano Del Guanto craft workshop? The working day starts early in the morning between 6:30 and 7 am, when the doors of the ADG workshop are already open. The first word that rings out in the craft workshop is “Good morning”. At 07:30 the first morning coffee is already ready and at 08:00 the working day begins. The first bucket of leather softening water is already full and can be found under the marble counter that will soon be almost 45 years old.

The first stage of processing is in moistening the leather by wrapping it in cloth, previously immersed in a bucket of water for a few seconds, then we move on to laying the leather on the counter, strictly manual work, adopting the right criteria. Then, with the help of scissors, a leather rectangle is formed. From here, the technical processing begins, with the splitting of the leather, it begins to take the form of a glove. Once the desired shape has been obtained, the embroidery itinerary is followed, which through small pictures, blades, curved cuts and various molds bring the holes, leather stitching, weaving, straps, pleats to life.

Are we done making the glove? No, there’s still a lot to do! Now we are in the delicate stage of the seam, entrusted to a highly qualified staff who has been doing this work for about 35 years. Glove production machines differ depending on the type of seam. During the final stage of processing, the passion and frugality of those who sew exclusively by hand and create small works of art are not neglected, as someone described years ago.

After sewing, we move on to the “shocking” phase, that is, to the exact control of the seams, which precedes the installation. The coating is done using special wooden hands on which the coating is placed. Small, traditional gestures of our workshop of handmade gloves… A light veil of vegetable glue is spread over the fingertips, and then the glove is inserted. To make sure the lining is stuck, the glove is placed on the thermal hand which will increase its adhesion. The final stages of production continue with work that can be done by hand or by machine and we are almost at the end of the line in fact only two stops short! Handmade gloves are ‘shown’, or ironed on thermal hands, bonded with cotton and undergo a final inspection, before passing through to destination packaging.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you unusual gloves that are made of the finest pony hair. Dafne (GKJ-0818) is a model of women’s gloves collection made of calf leather, completely handmade. The Dafne is developed from bimaterials with a pony-effect calfskin part and a lambskin palm. The Dafne Handmade Glove is made from a hand-woven leather strap with covered buckles. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

During this winter season, together we will discover the beauty of luxury artisanal craftsmanship, Italian passion and the extraordinary Neapolitan craftsmanship of Artigiano Del Guanto. If you want to stay updated and find out what new gloves models Artigiano Del Guanto has to offer us this winter fashion season, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Gemmi is a new partner of Mr.M blog, a luxury outerwear brand from Finland. All Gemmi pieces are crafted in the Gemmi factory in Finland with the help of skilled and experienced craftsmen and tailors. The materials they use are natural and sustainable and selected for their quality characteristics and responsible production.

How did the Gemmi brand come about? The brand was born out of necessity due to extremely harsh winters in the north of Europe. The history of the Gemmi brand dates back to the early 70s when a factory was built in the small town of Loviisa, located in southern Finland. The vision of the founder of the contemporary Gemmi fur brand got a new life in 2014. I am truly impressed by the work of Ms. Susanne Stenfors and her team who put a lot of love and effort into making Gemmi products and are truly dedicated to each client individually. Gemmi has always created its own unique style of modern fur coats. Their team saw an opportunity to develop a line of fur products that were already well designed, high quality, functional and responsibly made, into a contemporary brand of fur jackets and coats with clearer influences from the Nordic design tradition.

Gemmi is a family company continuing the long tradition of clothing and fur production in Finland. Their fur factory is one of the few textile and fur factories in the Nordic countries, where the right attitude and proper clothing are needed to get through the long and dark winters. In addition, they equally need some kind of outerwear during all seasons. All Gemmi products are designed and handcrafted in Finland. The Gemmi team found inspiration for the new collections in timeless design archives and experimented with different materials to create new contemporary pieces for all four seasons.

Gemmi various collections uphold the tradition of Finnish design aesthetics, combined with functionality and high-quality materials. The Gemmi team is constantly searching for new natural and sustainable materials suitable for making luxury outerwear. One of the latest discoveries is the Finnish tweed fabric produced by Saimaa Wool, using wool from Nordic sheep. This beautiful tweed fabric in striking colors complements Gemma’s timeless, classic design. Gemmi models are made for everyday use, and for weather and wind protection, they generally use wind and water resistant fabrics.

Windbreakers are now increasingly made from recycled polyester or nylon and the quality of these more sustainable technical fabrics is improving. Gemmi is known for lightweight, reversible fur coats, jackets and vests, which on the one hand look like a functional coat made of technical fabric, but when the reverse is a luxurious fox fur coat, jacket or vest. Gemmi fur jackets and coats are made from fur skins obtained at Saga Furs auctions from Finnish certified and regulated farmers. In this way, we know the origin of the materials used in the production of the fur coat.

In addition to making new fur coats, Gemmi can also revive your old ones and create new fashion masterpieces. I believe that through my previous fur fashion stories, you have become familiar with a number of fur facts that the most important thing to know is that natural fur is a long-lasting, warm material. Many of us have old jackets and coats made of fur that are hanging unused in our wardrobes, and this fact has inspired the Gemmi team to create a new service that will give old fur coats the opportunity to become new fur-lined parkas. This is a win-win combination that provides mutual benefits for many customers who use beautiful fur in a new form and for the Gemmi team a new opportunity because they can provide work for their expert team.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see a Reversible Fox Fur Coat in wonderful Bark color that is designed to be an oversized fit, but at the same time is the most comfortable jacket you will ever wear. The jacket is extremely warm and light. The hood and sleeves have a light padded lining. The jacket is designed and made in Finland. I must mention that Gemmi has limited stock, in order to minimize the level of unsold jackets and coats. Fur coats, jackets and vests ordered through the Gemmi online store are generally made to order and delivered within 2-3 weeks, assuming the Gemmi team has the required material in stock.

How can you buy Gemmi products? The Gemmi flagship store is located in the heart of downtown Helsinki, where you can experience the beauty of their fur jackets and coats in live. On the other hand, in the comfort of your home, you can use the services of the Gemmi online store, which has the widest selection of Gemmi products. Gemmi products can also be found in some stores in northern Finland and high-end department stores, fashion boutiques and fur shops in many countries in Europe and around the world.

I have always admired women with longer and well-groomed hair, but unfortunately I have had short hair all my life, but with the help of Ellen Wille wigs (supllied by Perike In) I managed to fulfill my long-term dream and I am very happy about it. Wigs have become a trend today, because wearing a wig opens up a number of new possibilities for you to experiment and change yourself, without having to make any permanent changes to your natural hair.

Also in addition to the aesthetic transformation, wigs can provide you with good protection from frequent treatment and heat, keeping your natural hair healthy. The history of Ellen Wille began with a suitcase full of ideas. Ellen Wille is a self-made hair designer who built a global brand from a small company. After completing her studies in Paris, the company was established in 1967. The corporate philosophy is shaped by commitment to the highest quality, and this is what the Ellen Wille name stands for.

For over 50 years, Ellen Wille designs have been inspired by international fashion trends. Her passion for wig perfection is evident – she guides every meticulous detail and each Ellen Wille wig is unique. All aspects of an individual style, from the hair fiber to the coloring to the cap design, is about ensuring the most beautiful look, natural movement and comfortable fit. Ellen remains involved in every detail of design, from the first idea, to the finishing touches of each style.

The wig you see on me today is the Kimera Deluxe wig, a champagne color from the Stimulate collection that has soft and gentle layers that make this mid-length style absolutely perfect. This wig is designed to ensure a tight and secure fit for the woman wearing it. This wig is of medium length and is made of the highest quality synthetic fibers.

How to properly wash a wig? Whether it is a wig made of natural or synthetic hair, there are steps to follow in order to maintain its appearance and quality. The whole process takes a short time and is essentially similar to washing your own hair. Place the wig in a deep dish, into which you previously poured lukewarm water and a little shampoo. After ten minutes, wash the wig thoroughly with gentle movements, then rinse it with lukewarm water. Then pour the conditioner into the clean water, insert the wig and leave it in the water for ten minutes. Then take it out and rinse with clean water.

I recommend that you use Ellen Wille shampoo and conditioner that are specially designed for wig maintenance. The gentle structure of these products will not damage the hair of the wig, and will successfully remove sweat and other impurities from it.

How to properly dry a wig? In order to last a long time, the wig must be carefully dried after washing. It must not be exposed to direct sources of heat, such as hair dryers or radiators, but must be dried naturally, in a ventilated place. The specially designed Ellen Wille stand allows the wig to dry easily and well after washing, keeping its shape.

If you want to stay updated and find out what all the Ellen Wille has in offer, you can follow them on the social media platforms Facebook and Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. See you in 2024 with some new and more interesting fashion stories. I will try not to take long breaks and I hope you understand the reason for my unexpected absence after failed cosmetic surgery in Egypt, but there will be time to make up for everything in the new year and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Best Regards,

Rose

Her work in fashion began with passion, hard work and the ability to focus and never give up on her dreams. On one occasion Ms. Sara Dawood stated: “For me the process never stops, the design process is constant, it is constant everywhere. I design from life experiences, art, movies, music, places I’ve visited, people I’ve met along the way. In the end, I learned about their culture and traditions, and then learned from them. I taste, see and feel culture in its raw form.”

MEROË is on a mission of rational consumption, which means that the brand is working to change the perspective of the industry from fast to slow fashion, so that the MEROË brand will provide pieces that can be worn and loved for longer. The MEROË team believes that sustainable fashion should never compromise. MEROË carefully creates clothes with great style, high quality and impeccable fit. MEROË carries out all these processes through responsible procurement and ethical production so that they can be consciously kept and given a second life.
