Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Nello Santi, Refinement of Luxurious Italian Fur

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my first fashion story on the pages of the Mr.M blog in the new year 2024. 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.

I would like to take this special opportunity to once again wish you all the best in the new year, and leave all that was bad behind you and remember to fill the years with life, not life with years. I sincerely hope that you achieve everything you want in the new year, acquire everything you haven’t so far and save the most valuable things you need for true happiness. Happy New Year!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am honored because I had the opportunity to see for myself the quality and design of the sweater that the Aida Barni brand team gave my son, as well as the fantastic knitwear that I showed you on the blog last summer season. Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Also, sometimes you need to make yourself happy with something new, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, and today I was happy with this beautiful dress from the new Aida Barni FW23/24 collection. Today I present to you this unusual elegant dress made of camel color cashmere, which is ideal for all occasions because of its beautiful work.

Aida Barni is a brand belonging to the Annapurna Group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and global manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines for women and men under the names Annapurna and Aida Barni. Annapurna uses only the latest production techniques available on the market, from cashmere looms to the latest and most advanced machines for making knitwear 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 carried out in Italy, more precisely in the company’s factory located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the district of the same name located in the very heart of Italy (the central part of Italy). “Made in Italy” is more than a manufacturing concept, but this brand has proven that it is much more than the perfect cashmere sweater on the store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression that is remembered.

You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-stocked stores throughout Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it’s more than respect and pure love, because you’re giving a piece that is woven with a love of tradition and a deep respect for art that isn’t given every day.

The dress you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni FW23/24 collection, warm camel color and made of the finest cashmere. An iconic color for the new winter season, which you really need to have in your wardrobe!

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 to you unusual long gloves Hermione GKJ-05158. This model of women’s gloves is made of lamb leather, with the use of leather in different tones on the back with weaving and knitting. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

I want to mention to you that the combination of colors is possible and that you can create your own gloves, just like I did when ordering this model of gloves. When ordering, it is necessary to specify the main shade of the glove when choosing a color and in the notes, add information about another shade to make a two-color version, if it is a two-color product.

Because of the pastel tones of this outfit, I decided to show you another pair of Artigiano Del Guanto gloves, which went perfectly with this outfit. Gloves model ZGK-8608 “Mr. Zeta” are gloves with Zip Opti, unisex model. The gloves are made of lambskin with Zip Opti application on the back with a leather anchor. 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.

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.

I promised to tell you more about wigs, so today I’m going to share with you how to properly care for wigs and toupees. In the previous post we learned how to properly wash and dry a wig, today I will try to explain to you how you can properly comb your wig, as well as other tips. When someone thinks of having to wear a wig, most people get scared thinking that it will take too much time to maintain them. Fortunately, that is not the case at all. Ellen Wille wigs are very easy to maintain and there are many products that will make them last a long time and look the same as when you bought them.

The wig should be combed only when it is completely dry. Otherwise, you will damage the hair or deform the shape of the wig. With adequate, previously used preparations (shampoo, balm, conditioner, spray), combing your wig will only take a few minutes. For detangling, it is best to use purpose-made brushes and combs. They will effectively style the hairstyle without breaking the hair unnecessarily.

The fact is that you can use any comb or brush to comb your wig. The problem is that inadequate accessories can permanently damage the hair. That’s why I strongly recommend you use special, purpose-made combs. Rounded teeth of different lengths will detangle the wig without pulling and pulling the hair. For the care of natural hair wigs, I suggest you a brush that has teeth with a rubber tip. They are designed to gently separate strands without affecting the base of the wig.

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.

This time I decided to complete my outfit with over-the-knee boots from the famous Italian brand Gianvito Rossi in collaboration with the e-commerce shopping platform MYTHERESA. 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, Gianvito Rossi shoes are loved by the whole planet because of their refined elegance and incredible comfort. The boots from today’s fashion story are an iconic honey-colored model made of knee-length suede leather, which went perfectly with this elegant outfit.

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.

All my photos from today’s post are additionally and specially processed to meet the expectations of the clients for the need of fashion photos. Unfortunately, the Face and Neck Lift operations did not go well and I suffered serious aesthetic and health consequences due to the negligence of the medical team from Egypt. In agreement with my legal team, I will soon tell you the whole story so that you can fully understand the reason for my long absence from the blog, because you deserve to know the truth.

Best Regards,

Rose

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: GEMMI, Nordic Luxury Outerwear

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my new Mrs. Mom fashion story on the Mr.M blog. I’m really glad 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 thank you from the bottom of my heart for the many messages and well wishes during my recovery from surgery in Egypt. I must admit that I am delighted by your great interest in my health condition after the operation. Marko read all your messages to me and you can be sure that you made me happy. As for the outcome of the operation itself, unfortunately I am not able to tell you anything more at the moment, due to the new situation in which the state authorities of the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Republic of Serbia are involved, so I would ask for your understanding. Rest assured that I will keep you updated on everything, as I have been doing so far and that I will share my experience with my surgical rejuvenation in Egypt as soon as possible.

I have to admit that I missed you and that I will try my best to write new fashion stories in accordance with my health possibilities, since currently the whole Mr.M team is helping me to fulfill my obligations. Your messages give me strength and optimism to continue my work.

Today’s story will be special because it will confirm a famous quote: “Life is not perfect but your hair can be.” 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.

I’ve always wondered if wigs made of synthetic hair look not so natural and artificial, since synthetic fibers usually have a high shine, but I’m surprised by the quality of the workmanship, even to the touch I didn’t feel that it was a synthetic hair wig. In the following fashion stories, I will share with you some more essential and important information that I have learned about wigs that you can find in Wigs In The Magical World.

The fashion part of today’s story will be dedicated to an unusual Nordic fur brand from Finland, which I’m sure you will like because during this cold period we all like to wear practical, light and warm things, meet GEMMI – the luxury fur world.

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.

If you want to stay updated and find out what all the novelties Gemmi has in offer for us this winter fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

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 am presenting you my favorite pieces from FW23 collection – cashmere turtleneck sweater and classic trousers made of the finest wool.

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.

Every woman who wants to achieve an elegant look must always have nice shoes. This time I decided on shoes from the iconic French brand Christian Louboutin supplied by MYTHERESA, which has been making quality shoes with unusual designs. The shoes you can see in today’s fashion story are made of black patent leather with gold accessories with Swarovski details. In addition to beauty, these shoes are comfortable, which is important when choosing footwear.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. See you in a few days at the same place, with some new interesting story. I will try not to take long breaks and I hope you will understand the reason for my unexpected absence, but there will be time to catch up.

Best,

Rose
