Fratelli Rossetti: My Hobo Sport Experience is Refined Combination of Comfort and Elegance!

My dear fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog! It may be officially autumn according to the calendar, but I decided to extend the summer season on the Mr.M blog a bit until the end of September. At the beginning of October, new fashion stories and some autumn outfits are waiting for us. The topic of today’s fashion story will be a well-known Italian footwear brand that I’m sure is well known to everyone because of its comfortable shoes that are made of the highest quality materials. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply iconic, shoes for all times – eternal pieces! You had the opportunity to see their most famous model, the Brera, 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.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary company story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives. The Fratelli Rossetti company is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: as early as the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

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 and La Giusta.

In today’s post I present one of the Hobo Sport models. This model of Fratelli Rossetti shoes represents a unique development in line with the success of the Hobo spirit, so classic and elegant, while also possessing a certain amount of relaxed everyday casual spirit. The Hobo Sport has a fresh and unobtrusive look that makes it one of the most loved models of the Fratelli Rossetti brand.

This model of Hobo Sport loafers that you can see on me in today’s post is made of soft, finely finished suede leather. This fashion shoe can also be worn without laces thanks to the practical internal elastic band. Rubber sole with custom tread and removable insole. When you buy this model, you also get laces in case you want to give this model a more classic look.

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.

Loro Piana: Timeless Italian Refinement in Shades of Summer Pastel Colors…

My dear fashionistas, today I have a new special fashion adventure from Jordan for you. The pictures from today’s post were created during my stay at the Kempinski Ishatar Hotel on the Dead Sea, an extraordinary magical location that I wrote about in more detail in one of the previous stories from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

For all my dear travellers and fashionistas who didn’t get to read my previous travelogues and fashion stories from Jordan on the Mr.M blog or want to remind yourself of some details, take a few minutes of your time and visit the post on the following links:

  1. The story about Amman and Jerash (travelogue)
  2. The story of Petra (travelogue)

  4. The Fashionable Royal Blue adventure in Aqaba (fashion story)

  6. The story of Petra with Loro Piana (fashion story)
  7. The story of Aqaba and the Dead Sea (travelogue)
  8. A Unique Story about Fratelli Rossetti Brera shoes in Jordan (fashion story)

Today I will share with you my fashion adventure in the Dead Sea and I would like to thank the Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know Jordanian culture and customs.

Today, on the Mr.M blog, we are once again having some good time with a famous Italian brand, Loro Piana, and I’m presenting you my favorite pieces from their SS22. The pieces that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are models that can always be found in every Loro Piana collection, only in accordance with fashion trends, some new color palettes are introduced.

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 two special pieces (a polo shirt and a bermuda-shorts) from the latest men’s Loro Piano SS22 collection, which are just a small part of my favorites this season due to their distinctive elegance and my love for neutral pastel colors. Crafted from 100% silk, this polo t-shirt is perfect for the man who pays attention to detail and leaves nothing to chance. This short-sleeved T-shirt in soft taupe earth tones, a color that is perfect for all occasions and can be combined with other colors extremely easily. I think that all those who have been following my blog for years don’t remember that I used to wear bermuda-shorts, so this is a precedent that I will not forget because I don’t usually wear bermuda-shorts, but I just had to show you this model because they are the perfect length, suitable for summer walks and sightseeing tours.

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.

Finally we are coming to my favorite part of the post – the shoes! The moccasins that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are from the SS22 collection of the Italian fashion house Tod’s. Moccasins are made of the highest quality suede leather with details in the form of carved leather that imitates the natural lines that can be seen on the bark of trees.

Tod’s is one of the few brands on the fashion scene that has remained true to its roots and generations. Tod’s as a brand has always stood out for its quality leather and models that come from craft workshops. Mr. Diego Della Valle’s idea was to create shoes, appeal and fashion accessories suitable for both formal and informal occasions, with a casual, comfortable, simple but refined taste.

A brand considered the top of Italian design, Tod’s embraces a lifestyle that has always been an association for timeless elegance with superior quality. A way of life that is connected with the concept of the Italian way of life, good taste and “savoir vivre” – the art of living life.

Today, the Tod’s brand represents the pinnacle of Italian fashion and in addition to footwear, produces clothes, knitwear and fashion accessories that have found their place in the hearts of people all over Europe and the world.

I used my trip to Jordan as the opportunity to “walk around” my new fashion accessory – Christian Dior sunglasses that I got from my dear friends Edel-Optics. Edel Optics is one of the largest European online stores for eyeglasses and sunglasses. In addition to an online store that operates in all countries of the European Union, they have a store in Hamburg, Germany.

Fratelli Rossetti: An unique Story about the Brera loafers in the Wadi Rum desert…

My dear fashionistas, today I have a new special fashion adventure from Jordan for you. The pictures from today’s post were taken in the moon desert princess Wadi Rum, a desert in Jordan that I wrote about in detail in one of the previous travelogues on the Mr.M blog.

For all my dear travellers and fashionistas who didn’t get to read my previous travelogues and fashion stories from Jordan on the Mr.M blog or want to remind yourself of some details, take a few minutes of your time and visit the post on the following links:

  7. The story of Aqaba and the Dead Sea (travelogue)

Today I will share with you my fashion adventure in Wadi Rum and I would like to thank the Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know Jordanian culture and customs.

Today we’re meeting again with Fratelli Rossetti, an iconic Italian footwear brand that I’m sure everyone is familiar with for their comfortable shoes made from the highest quality materials. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply eternal, shoes for all times!

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary business story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives.

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

In today’s post I present you one of the Brera models. How did this model get its name? Brera is the “art district” of Milan, where in the 60s sculptors, painters and writers tried to leave their mark, with new languages ​​and new forms. Its liberal and open atmosphere inspired the creation of the “Brera”, the fringed moccasin, a style revolution just beginning to rediscover its love of life. Like an artistic composition, Brera combines different materials and colors. This special mix of materials and shapes makes the moccasin one of the most successful chapters in Fratelli Rossetti’s history.

This model of the Brera moccasin you can see on me in today’s post is made of soft, finely finished open weave leather with evenly spaced holes on the upper. Special high-quality workmanship. These shoes have a leather sole.

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

This unusual adventure and unforgettable experience in the magical Wadi Rum was completed by my friends from the Loro Piana brand, who made this experience in Jordan better for me with their products.

You have seen the Loro Piana brand on the Mr.M blog so far, and I think there are no more words left to describe the quality and beauty of the creations of this famous fashion house that belongs to the LVMH group.

The shirt is made of silk and baby cashmere, which are the best friends you can have when high temperatures are present in the desert! For the end, I left a beautiful Loro Piana belt that went perfectly with the moccasins and that fact made me happy because it’s usually harder to combine leather colors, when it comes to different brands.

Loro Piana: Refined Italian Elegance in Ancient Petra…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready to continue our fashion adventure in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Today I have a special fashion story from Petra, the mysterious place where all the secrets of Jordan are carved in stone.

For all my dear travellers and fashionistas who didn’t get to read my previous travelogues and fashion stories from Jordan on the Mr.M blog or want to remind yourself of some details, take a few minutes of your time and visit the post on the following links:

  1. The story about Amman and Jerash (travelogue)
  2. The story of Petra (travelogue)
  3. The story from Wadi Rum with Fratelli Rossetti (fashion story)
  4. The Fashionable Royal Blue adventure in Aqaba (fashion story)
  5. The story of Wadi Rum, the Moon Desert Princess (travelogue)

Today I will share with you my fashionable adventure in Petra and I would like to thank the Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know Jordanian culture and customs.

Today’s post will be dedicated to an Italian iconic fashion house that we have been friends with on the Mr.M blog for several years and I have presented you with my favorite pieces from different seasons, but today I will try to bring you closer and better explain some details about this brand that radiates refinement and classic, true Italian elegance – Loro Piana.

The Loro Piana brand is special because their marketing activities are different from other current fashion brands on the market. Loro Piana is a cult brand, which exclusively cherishes the principles of minimalist refined elegance and unobtrusiveness. Their promotional campaigns are in line with the mission and vision of the brand because Loro Piana is a recognizable brand in itself with an extremely large customer base and this brand does not carry out classic marketing promotional campaigns.

All campaigns are carried out with carefully selected brand ambassadors who are chosen on a long-term basis, and because of this, Mr.M readers have had the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Loro Piana pieces for several years and to learn some interesting information, but you have never read a more detailed story about to this eternal and iconic Italian fashion house.

What should we know about this extraordinary brand? 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.

Originally from Trivero, the Loro Piana family started their family business in the wool trade at the beginning of the 19th century. In the second half of this century, the family moved its activities to Valsesia and founded the Fratelli Lora e Compagnia woolen mill, and then the Zignone & C. woolen mill in Quarona at the beginning of the 20th century. Engineer and founder of the Loro Piana brand, Mr. Pietro Loro Piana founded the company Loro Piana & C. in Quarona in 1924. Soon this company will celebrate its jubilee 100th anniversary of its existence and it will be an extraordinary celebration of the “first fashion century” of this extraordinary fashion house, which I am immensely looking forward to!

Mr. Franco Loro Piana (grandson of Mr. Pietro Loro Piana), after taking over the leadership of the company in the 1960s, started exporting high quality fabrics to Europe, America and Japan. He significantly expanded the markets in which Loro Piana began its new business ventures.

In the 1970s, Franco’s sons, Sergio and Pier Luigi Loro Piana, became actively involved in the company’s work, who believed that the most important focus was on the development of premium fabrics, including cashmere and extra fine wool. The research of the brothers Sergio and Pier Luigi gave birth to the famous Tasmanian fabric, a highly sought-after material in the world of fashion.

In the 1980s, Sergio and Pier Luigi Loro Piano began to diversify the business, launching their first ready-to-wear collection and establishing a luxury division. The domestic division was then launched in 2006. In 2013, the famous LVMH group bought 80% of the shares in the Loro Piana company and thus became the main shareholders. Unfortunately, Mr. Sergio Loro Piana died in the same year and the LVMH group acquired an additional 5% from the sale of shares, so that they currently own 85% of Loro Piana’s shares.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see three special Loro Piana items (shirt, trousers and the sneakers) from the latest men’s Loro Piana spring-summer 2022 collection that are just some of my favorites this season due to their distinctive elegance and my love for neutral pastel colors. Crafted from 100% silk, this t-shirt is perfect for the man who pays attention to detail and leaves nothing to chance. This short-sleeved shirt is ivory, a color that is perfect for all occasions and can be combined with other colors very easily. The trousers are Chino style (shorter model) with the option of tying, while the sneakers are there to emphasize the sporty elegance of this refined and elegant outfit.

MALO: One Royal Blue Fashion Story on the Red Sea Coast…

My dear fashionistas, today I have a special fashion adventure from Jordan for you. The pictures in today’s post were taken in wonderful Aqaba, Jordan’s only seaport.

For all my dear travellers and fashionistas who didn’t get to read my previous travelogues and fashion stories from Jordan on the Mr.M blog or want to remind yourself of some details, take a few minutes of your time and visit the post on the following links:

  1. The story about Amman and Jerash (travelogue)
  2. The story of Petra (travelogue)
  3. The story from Wadi Rum with Fratelli Rossetti (fashion story)

Today I will share with you my fashion adventure in Aqaba and I would like to thank the Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know Jordanian culture and customs.

For all lovers of travelogues and unusual travel, the Aqaba travelogue will be published in the first half of September on Mr.M blog, so you know you will soon learn more about this unusual coastal city and the only seaport in the Kingdom of Jordan.

In today’s post, we are meeting again with the Italian brand Malo in a slightly different seaside landscape. This brand is known for its innovations and combining modern technology with traditional handwork, the reasons why this brand is at the very top of the fashion industry, especially in knitwear.

Malo (word comes from the Latin ego mālō, meaning “I prefer”) is a famous Italian luxury brand of cashmere, which was launched exactly 50 years ago by the brothers Alfredo and Giacomo Canessa in 1972 in Florence. All Malo products are exclusively made in Italy. Their collections are seasonal and distributed through a direct sales network that includes Malo stores, multi-brand stores and specially selected luxury department stores in different parts of the world.

Choosing Malo products means prioritising the quality of the most noble materials, high craftsmanship and artistic forms, absolute standards of excellence linked to a long artisanal tradition in creating unique garments, made to last over time.

The Malo brand has been developing since its inception and has perfected its products while improving its image policy to conquer the American market. The creative direction of the brand is followed by important fashion names such as Gianni Bugli, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Saverio Palatella, Fabio Piras. The first appearance was in New York in 2006, which was a great success with the press and international buyers. Anna Piaggi defined the Malo brand during an interview with the British newspaper The Telegraph as “the best producer of cashmere in the world.”

Malo item is an exclusive piece that should be used and left for generations to come, that way you will understand that it is the product you are looking for. Materials and form are always connected, from the choice of raw material to spinning, from dyeing to turning the yarn into a product, each Malo cashmere sweater has almost fifty years of history and will continue to evolve while respecting tradition.

Every step is subjected to constant checks carried out by Malo company’s expert teams, because this is the key to success and excellent results are achieved. So true that Malo bases its production on artisan processing techniques handed down over the centuries. There is no stage of production that can be fully entrusted to a machine or a computer, certain stitches, a certain loop or complex processing can only be done by the hands, experience and skills of highly specialized craftsmen.

The turning point in the modern history of the brand is 2019, which marks a new course for the historic Florentine brand, because in life our roots are the past, and the future is made for dreams. Today, the company is returning to its first love, the premium cashmere knitwear that made it famous worldwide, and aims to take the brand beyond knitwear into a pret-a-porter line where the same effects can be created in different fabrics.

Handmade knitwear is the pride of the Malo brand, it takes eight to sixteen hours to make one garment, an alchemy that transforms precious fibers into very soft fabrics and then into sweaters by the skilled hands of specialized artisans. Superior materials in combination with rigorous craft techniques guarantee exceptional aesthetic results and absolute comfort, the Malo sweater was created to be worn and passed on to new generations. Cashmere in its purest form is actually one of the most resistant yarns in nature, how soft it is, how durable it is, how strong it is, it must be respected, taken care of, appreciated for its unique qualities, for the sensations it gives to the skin that go straight to the heart.

The Malo brand has been dedicated to developing the art of fine knitwear for generations, each garment is entirely produced in Italy in Campi Bisenzio in Tuscany and in Borgonovo Val Tidone in Emilia Romagna, regions that are the repository of a long artisanal tradition at the heart of Made in Italy. The finest yarns arrive clean in the company’s laboratories through a completely transparent supply chain, from green Mongolia to the icy steppes of the Andes mountains to Italian factories, every step is subject to constant checks.

Absolute quality is the first selection criterion for Malo, then it will be the experience, skill and careful eye of craftsmen dedicated to turning precious yarns into exceptional garments.

Why is the Malo brand so special? When buying any luxury product, the after-sales support and services provided by the brand are very important and that is why the Malo brand has developed a special service for its customers called “Malo Forever“.

Every item that comes out of the Malo Workshop is made to last. The art of the Florentine laboratory perfectly made in every single detail, after which the story of the new owner will make it unique. Whether you opt for a cozy sweater, a warm wrap scarf, a gift, a gift, worn over and over again, everyone has that special item of clothing that can bring back memories or stir up forgotten emotions.

Malo offers its customers several services of manual repair of branded items of all materials, whether they are made of wool, cashmere or any other natural fiber. If well maintained, high-quality knitwear can last for decades, and Malo’s professional regeneration service is part of the Malo product care process.

The most precious objects are made to last, they are a part of one’s life, like any other element of memory. In the Malo laboratories, every detail is taken care of: each garment will be carefully inspected, mended, washed only with very mild soaps that will make the fibers even more sensitive to the touch. After washing, the garment will be “shaved” to remove the “bunch” that has built up over years of use. At this stage, the entire garment will be carefully combed by hand. Each item of clothing is renovated by Malo expert craftsmen and your product is ready for a new life.

How can you take advantage of this “Malo Forever” service? This service can be used by bringing the item of clothing you want to regenerate to one of the Malo boutiques. Malo staff will be happy to take it over, from in-store delivery all the way to the hands of a Malo Craftsman to work their magic.

Fratelli Rossetti: Italian Elegance in the Kingdom of Time…

My dear fashionistas and travellers, welcome to the first special fashion story I prepared for you during my magical adventure in Jordan. Fashion stories will not follow the topics of the travelogue, so there will be, as always, separate topics where I will try to show you the beauty of Jordan through some other “fashion side”.

In today’s fashion story we will enjoy the beauty of sunset in Wadi Rum together with our new Italian friend Fratelli Rossetti. Before starting today’s post, I would like to thank the Jordan Tourism Board – Visit Jordan for the kind invitation and the amazing experience to get to know the culture and customs of Jordan better.

The topic of today’s fashion story will be a well-known Italian footwear brand that I’m sure is recognizable to everyone because of its comfortable shoes that are made of the highest quality materials. Fratelli Rossetti footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply iconic, shoes for all times!

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.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary business story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives.

The company Fratelli Rossetti is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Diego joined the family business in 1978, dealing with the commercial aspects, especially the development of export markets and the expansion of the single brand retail network in Italy and abroad. Under his leadership, the Fratelli Rossetti company was the first Italian fashion brand to open a boutique on Madison Avenue in New York. Today he is the president of the company. In addition to a successful business career, Mr. Diego is intensely interested in photography and devotes a lot of time and attention to charitable activities.

Dario began working in the styling department in 1981, a natural progression from his art education and college courses in shoemaking. An art lover who collects antiques and a passionate collector of vintage cars, he enjoys visiting exhibitions and unusual markets, always looking for inspiration for new creations to enrich the new Fratelli Rossetti collections.

In the 1990s, even before graduating from Bocconi University in Milan, Luca was already involved in the management side of the business, constantly striving to make significant improvements to the company’s processes. Today, in the capacity of general director, he is particularly involved in marketing and collection development. He believes in constant training and innovation, necessary for the fashion sector if it wants to create new trends. Luca is a person who has a great love for travel and is also an avid marathoner: he travels around the world to participate in international marathons.

Diego, Dario and Luca are the new generation leading the Fratelli Rossetti company today, true to tradition but also embracing the new, inevitable changes that keep Fratelli Rossetti at the top of the fashion industry.

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: back in the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

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

In today’s post I present you one of the Brera models. How did this model get its name? Brera is the “art district” of Milan, where in the 60s sculptors, painters and writers tried to leave their mark, with new languages ​​and new forms. Its liberal and open atmosphere inspired the creation of the “Brera”, the fringed moccasin, a style revolution just beginning to rediscover its love of life. Like an artistic composition, Brera combines different materials and colors. This special mix of materials and shapes makes the moccasin one of the most successful chapters in Fratelli Rossetti’s history.

This model of the Brera moccasin you can see on me in today’s post is made of soft, finely finished open weave leather with evenly spaced holes on the upper. Special high-quality workmanship. These shoes have a leather sole.

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

This unusual adventure and unforgettable experience with the sunset in the magical Wadi Rum was completed by my friends from the Loro Piana brand who made this experience in Jordan more beautiful for me with their products.

You have seen the Loro Piana brand on the Mr.M blog so far, and I think there are no more words left to describe the quality and beauty of the creations of this famous fashion house that is part of the LVMH group.

The shirt is made of silk and baby cashmere, while the trousers are made entirely of the finest linen, which is the best friend you can have when the temperatures are high! For the end, I left a beautiful Loro Piana leather belt that went perfectly with the loafers and that fact made me happy because it’s usually harder to combine leather colors, when it comes to different brands.

Fashionable Letter from Sri Lanka: Stripes are Iconic!

Dear my fashionistas and travelers, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! Today’s fashion story will be about the iconic fashion detail of this season, a print that has appeared in many world fashion houses this season – stripes.

Before I start today’s post, I would like to thank the Sri Lankan Tourism Board for an amazing experience and a wonderful trip. If by any chance you missed any of my previous posts, take the opportunity to visit some of the previous stories at the following links:

  1. The Story about Colombo (Travelogue): LINK
  2. Unforgettable Fashion Safari in Sri Lanka: LINK
  3. My Safari Experience in Sri Lanka (Travelogue): LINK

Today’s fashion story will be dedicated to timeless fashion detail – stripes, a print that has returned to the big doors of this fashion season, as evidenced by the new collections of all famous well-known fashion houses that have decorated some of their clothes, accessories and footwear with iconic detail – stripes.

What’s the behind story about the stripes? Over time, this print has become a symbol of classic and elegant style, simple and somewhat conservative, but the history of this fashion print in clothing is more than unconventional, sometimes it could be found on the “other side of the law”.

Striped design is one of the first characteristic examples of textile processing in the history of fashion, which has survived various eras and survived to this day. Perhaps today stripes are a feature of perfect classical style, balanced and somewhat liberal, the history of this fashion print is more than avant-garde, and often the print that could be found on uniforms worn by people on the other side of the law. According to some historical records, stripes on clothes were first found during the Middle Ages, and in their black and white version they were reserved for criminal convicts, court lunatics and “love sellers” – prostitutes.

The conclusion is that stripes may have gone through various epochs of condemnation and admiration, but today they have flourished and become an unavoidable fashion detail that is simply irresistible and simply impossible to avoid!

The jacket in today’s post is from the new collection of the Italian fashion house Tod’s. The jacket is made of the highest quality suede leather with brushed leather details.

Tod’s is one of the few brands on the fashion scene that has remained true to its roots and generations. Tod’s as a brand has always stood out for its quality leather and models that come from craft workshops. Mr. Diego Della Valle’s idea was to create shoes, appeal and fashion accessories suitable for both formal and informal occasions, with a casual, comfortable, simple but refined taste.

Today, the Tod’s brand represents the pinnacle of Italian fashion and in addition to footwear, produces clothes, knitwear and fashion accessories that have found their place in the hearts of people all over Europe and the world.

One of the brands that has recognized positive energy and love for adventures and unusual journeys is the Swiss watch brand Certina. We have already met with this brand during the winter season on the Mr.M blog and if you are interested to know why this brand is so special and unique, read the story at this link.

Certina watches are known for their precision, reliability and sporty character. The sports watch brand has built an international reputation for quality Swiss workmanship, during its long history, which is more than 130 years long.

Certina is a symbol of durability and longevity, which is why the mascot of the turtle armor brand symbolizes robustness and longevity – characteristics that all Certina watches, without exception. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a symbol of the brand since the 1960s. Today, the distinctive outline can still be found on almost every Certina watch, as well as on the brand logo. It evokes the exceptional endurance that characterizes every Certina watch.

Today, after 60 years, Certina DS Jubile adorns my hand. It is an unusual feeling when one such brand with unique watch designs is my new partner in my adventures. The watch you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is the DS Jubile model, which exists in two versions, the basic one with a steel bracelet and the other with a leather bracelet.

This watch combines precious materials with maximum precision. This elegant men’s watch is equipped with an 18K yellow gold frame. It is powered by an innovative PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision and reliability are confirmed by COSC. The watch has a date display. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case make this watch durable and robust: the watch can withstand water pressures up to 10 ATM. Illuminated hands contrast with the background and thus always provide the best readability. The stainless steel bracelet, which is attached to the wrist together with the button, makes this model from Certina impressive!

Certina: It’s always the Perfect Time for a Fashionable Safari in Sri Lanka

Dear my fashionistas and travelers, welcome to another fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today’s fashion story stands out from the others we experienced together this season because we are going on a real exotic fashion safari to far away Sri Lanka with my friends from the Italian fashion house Loro Piana and the Swiss watch brand Certina.

When we think of safaris, we all imagine light linen jackets with 4 pockets, which in the fashion world are defined as “Safari Field Jackets”, which are indispensable in the collections of all famous brands every spring/summer collection. There is no brand that has not made this jacket in any of its versions, but only one world Italian brand has managed to make a timeless iconic classic – Loro Piana.

If by any chance you missed my first travel letter from Sri Lanka, you can read it by visiting this link, I am sure you will enjoy it.

When I saw the linen jacket that arrived in a beautiful box, the first thing I thought was: “God, when I’m going to wear a jacket like this, this is the perfect safari jacket!”. Shortly afterwards, a few weeks later to be exact, an invitation from the Sri Lankan Tourism Board followed to visit my favorite dream island again. The first thing I remembered was the famous exotic safari in Sri Lanka and I took my Safari jacket out of my wardrobe and excitedly counted down the days and hours until the trip with the help of my new faithful buddy Certina DS Jubilee whom I also took with me on an adventure of a lifetime.

I am sure that many of you are wondering what the safari, wildlife and national parks of Sri Lanka really look like, so I think now it’s the perfect time to describe this amazing experience to you!

Sri Lanka is an island country that is rich in diversity of geographical relief forms with extremely rich flora and fauna. Sri Lanka is a true paradise for all nature and animal lovers. There are 26 national parks and over 500 protected areas on this small island, which together cover about 27% of Sri Lanka’s area. The modest size of Sri Lanka allows you to experience all these little natural wonders in a relatively short period of time.

I will share with you the best tips on which national parks you can visit in Sri Lanka to see your favorite animals or enjoy extraordinary landscapes and exotic plants. If you want to see:

Leopards: Yala National Park, Wilpattu National Park.
Elephants: Udawalawa National Park, Minneriya / Kaudulla National Park and Hurulu Eco Park.
Bears and Sloths: Wilpattu National Park
Exotic bird species: Bundala National Park, Kumana National Park, Gal Oya National Park.
If you want to enjoy amazing landscapes: Horton Plains National Park, Gal Oya National Park.

During my second visit to Sri Lanka I had the opportunity to see exotic safaris and unusual river safaris. If you want to experiment like me and pack your suitcases with fashion pieces in which you will look fantastic and then have pictures as proof that you can show your grandchildren how fashionable and cool you were, then this post is perfect for you! ?

I have always run Mr.M blog because of my immense love for beautiful and positive things in life that have never disappointed me, and those are fashion, travel and some lifestyle topics that fill our daily lives with beautiful and positive vibes. I am really glad and my heart is full when I receive your emails and messages about how my stories encouraged someone to do something new and unusual in their life.

I feel great happiness and indescribable joy that Mr.M blog has become a great community of people who enjoy the beautiful moments in life and I will always try to meet the expectations of people who are with me on this unusual life journey and it is nice to know that there are people who appreciate someone’s work to show some beautiful aspects of life with unusual stories almost every week for 7 years.

Fashion Diary: Something old, something new, something blue…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and you are ready for a new fashion adventure on Mr.M blog. I believe that you are tired from the last working week, but the weekend is coming and I am sure that we will all recharge our batteries for new victories to come.

As the title of the today’s post says, I will show you how I managed to combine something new, something old and something blue, so we will see how successful I was in that task!

My friends from my hometown tell me that the weather in Belgrade is wonderful, I sincerely wish I could brag about how wonderful the weather is in Berlin, but these days I have more of an opportunity to wear a raincoat than an interesting spring jacket. I don’t know if it’s just some of my subjective feelings, but I think that the weather climate have changed significantly, this spring has the typical characteristics of autumn.

Morning and evening temperatures are lower, sometimes with precipitation and the weather is quite unstable. I experienced in one day during the photo shooting that I experience heavy dry snow like you can see in Snow Globe, the sun is shining, it is raining and all that at the same time of course, is accompanied by a strong wind. I know it seems impossible and amazing, but the weather in Berlin is changeable and people don’t even know how to behave anymore and what they should wear.

When I saw the first rays of the sun, the only thing I could do was send a quick message to the photographer with the words: “I think now is the right time!”. After I got an answer from the photographer to be ready and “to make it happen” in 20 minutes, I only had enough time to brush my teeth and at the speed of light put on the things I had been preparing for days and fitting into this outfit.

The turtleneck that you have the opportunity to see on me today is certainly at least 3, maybe 4 years old, if you will believe me, I never wore it because I did not have the courage to make a perfect fit it with my other items in the closet. I think that the speed this time was crucial and that’s why I put on this turtleneck without thinking and went to take some photos.

As I write this post and look at the pictures, now I realize that the quote: “It’s never too late! Everything in life happens for a reason and at the right time! ” I think that this turtleneck, no matter how funny it seemed, waited too long for its “five minutes” and that I gathered the courage to take it.

You know why I adore Berlin? It is one of those European capitals where there are no fashion rules and official codes… You can go out to throw garbage in a ball gown or if you are not in the right mood you just can go outside in total home casual lounge wear, everything is allowed.

A couple of days ago, I read the German Vogue magazine and saw the headline – “Are you ready for the blue fashion wave?”. I am not one of those people who blindly follow fashion trends, but I got the inspiration to find some blue details from my wardrobe and include some of them in my new fashion story.

I don’t think you can guess how that fashion battle through my closet looked like, since there were things on all sides and the first thing I saw was a navy blue Burberry trench coat and this time it was the base item for me to fit the fashion details in this outfit.

Since the coat had leather details on it, I didn’t give up until I found these pants that have a leather line because I had a feeling that they would be the perfect choice.

There was a dilemma between 3 sweaters: dark navy blue, royal blue and this azure blue sweater that you have the opportunity to see on me today. Honestly, if I had time to think, I don’t think I would have chosen this sweater because it is too intense in color to be covered, so I was constantly waiting for the ideal opportunity and a better sunny day when it could be worn individually.

As for the choice of watch, I really didn’t have a dilemma because the Schroeder Joialliers watch was made as an ideal gold-black combination and because of the details on the coat, I just know that it will be the ideal choice.

For all those who did not follow my fashion adventure last week, this watch is something new to my watch collection, so I suggest you read my previous story and learn something new about this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their 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!

The new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” watch has Quartz “Ronda 515” movement, white dial with guilloché center and 3 Arabic numerals, and date indicator located at 6 o’clock.

You know that I never leave the house without a backpack and because of that there is always my best friend Picard who never leaves me. This backpack you see today in my post has survived adventures with me across Europe and the world, but as you can see we are still like new and fresh, always ready for some elegant occasions and city adventures.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

Turtleneck: Loro Piana

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Versace

Sneakers: Loro Piana

I owe you a story about sneakers, but believe me, it’s not that interesting because as a “double” virgo in my horoscope, because of my obsession with cleanliness, I arranged and clean up 5 pairs of navy sneakers and left them to dry. If I tell you that these are really the first sneakers that I saw in the last second and managed to get close to the trench just to see that the colors match, happy that I fit the outfit nicely, I had to go back to the apartment because I forgot the backpack… Sometimes, it happens!

Can you guess what is hidden in this wonderful package? I managed to find out only after this photo shoot because we took a picture on the way to the post office and I didn’t want to open such a wonderful gift on the street, but to keep this wonderful decorative paper in the warmth of my home, the color is beautiful! You know how much I love decorative papers and I like to collect and keep them all…

I know, it sounds hard, but it’s been my hobby since I was little! My mother could never clean up the house of decorative papers from gifts and fine stickers, when I went to college on one occasion she accidentally threw everything away because she mixed up the boxes and today I can’t regret that I was left without those wonderful decorative papers.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another new fashion trend that will be trending this spring! Do you have in your closet some interesting blue fashion piece that you plan to bring out and see the light of day? 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

Fratelli Borgioli: The Story about Handmade Shoes from Sunny Tuscany…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new story on the Mr.M blog. How are you today? I sincerely hope that you are all well and that after the adventure in cold but fascinating Russia you are ready for one warm fashion story from sunny Tuscany. Italy is a country that is considered to be the cradle of fashion and hedonism in general. My grandmother always said that there was nothing better than the smell of a new Italian shoes just taken out of the box.

I admit that I did not understand that as a child, but today, as a man almost the age of 30, I began to understand all the wise advices and words of the older people around me. In today’s post, we will learn something new about an interesting Italian footwear brand that crafting handmade shoes – the Fratelli Borgioli.

The unusual fashion journey began in 1946 when two brothers Rene and Valerio Borgioli, skilled craftsmen, decided to start their business in a small workshop near the picturesque Tuscan town of Vinci. The Borgioli brothers started making handmade shoes that were also of excellent fit and quality.

A few years later, Rene and Valerio decided to hire new workers and managed to expand their workspace in the family home. In the seventies of the last century, due to the increased demand on the market, the Borgioli brothers decided to build a new business facility of a larger area and introduced new ways of making footwear.

In the 1980s, the second generation of the Borgioli family, Urbano and Alfredina Borgioli, expanded the family business by turning the entire family home into a factory. Fratelli Borgioli has become a well-established and reliable manufacturing company in the luxury goods market.

They also achieved great success in the late eighties, when the family company began exhibiting at specialized fairs and thus entered new European markets. After conquering Italy, the next in line were Switzerland, Germany and Austria. It was a big step for a family company that believed in its exceptional quality and dedicated work of its skilled craftsmen.

Fratelli Borgioli has a collection of shoes for men and women, so you can always find something interesting for yourself and your loved ones.

Fratelli Borgioli is constantly investing in product research and development in collaboration with its workers: artisans, numerous stylists and manufacturers of leather samples. Due to these characteristics, the brand is recognized in Italy and abroad as an extremely valuable manufacturer of high quality shoes produced in Italy.

Fratelli Borgioli regularly makes new collaboration agreements with international fashion houses and thus modernizes its production and expands its sales network to a larger number of markets.

Fratelli Borgioli is currently a family business run by a third generation that has managed to advance and improve a company that has more than 70 years of experience and tradition in the field of luxury footwear production.

The Fratelli Borgioli collections were selected by the Pitti Design Committee. For more than 10 years, Borgioli has been presenting its seasonal collections at this important event in the world of men’s fashion. For all those unfamiliar with the Pitti Uomo term, I would like to write one brief explanation.

Pitti Uomo is one of the world’s most important fashion platforms for collections of men’s clothing and accessories and for launching new projects in men’s fashion. It is held twice a year in Florence.

Fratelli Borgioli has launched a permanent exhibition at his showroom in Milan. The Borgioli showroom is located in the modern design district of Brera and is open all year round for all fans of this brand. In this showroom you can see new seasonal collections and of course some of the timeless pieces from past collections that marked the work of this famous shoe brand.

This family brand introduced certain innovations in business during 2020, and these are the possibility of online shopping in their official e-shop and a new unusual collaboration with distant Japan. A new line of footwear that combines the famous Italian craft with an unusual Japanese style. At the end of last year, SEISHOU saw the light of day with a new line of shoes designed by Fratelli Borgioli with Japanese designers Ikeda and Matsuzaki.

The name of the new line, SEISHOU (“unison” in English, which means complete harmony). This line brings with it a mixture of Italian workmanship and Japanese taste.

SEISHOU is a hybrid collection for both sexes, which combines classic Italian design with modern Japanese style. The Japanese concept and design are expressed by the skill of making Italian shoes. The design includes the concept of authentic Italian footwear and a taste that faithfully depicts the modern Japanese way of life.

All shoes from the SEISHOU line combine the comfort of sneakers with the elegance of formal shoes. All pieces are made with the help of complex techniques that are still applied today by a very small number of footwear manufacturers, such as the sole milled on the last, the Blake processing with a hidden channel and the use of natural materials.

Shoes from the SEISHOU line are available in the online Fratelli Borgioli store, as well as in the Fratelli Borgioli stores, Casa Borgioli store, set in the premises of the old factory in Vinci, Tuscany, the birthplace of the Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci.

If you want to be updated and find out all the news that Fratelli Borgioli is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

Since the weather in Belgrade got a little better, I decided to take my coat out in the fresh air and the coat you asked me about after seeing it on the list of my favorite items that you should give to your men for the New Year holidays.

Whitcomb & Shaftesbury was founded in 2004 by Suresh and Mahesh Ramakrishnan as an independent brand transparent in its production and dedicated to a deep belief in fashion originality and independence, backed by a craft approach. By creating tailor-made pieces that customers want, they are creating British luxury fashion in a whole new way – building links between the consumer and the brand, instead of solely encouraging unnecessary consumption in the consumption chain.

Good bespoke is a special kind of fashion: turning the ideas and measures of customers and beautiful natural raw materials into something very original, unusual and special; achieving quality is consistent and independent is exactly what sets Whitcomb & Shaftesbury apart from other fashion brands on the market.

In my post today, you have the opportunity to see again a masterpiece of the Whitcomb & Shaftesbury fashion house – a coat of classic design, which is authentic in details and which will remain a classic in your wardrobe for a lifetime.

This amazing coat is made of a incredible blend of Vicuna and pure cashmere, so this wonderful combination of materials makes this coat so special and unique.

As you know, I am a big fan of coats and this one caught my attention because it is unique and elegant. The other thing I love about this coat is the exceptional color that is easy to combine.
