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)

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:

  5. The story of Wadi Rum, the Moon Desert Princess (travelogue)
  6. The story of Petra with Loro Piana (fashion story)
  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.

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.

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.

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.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see one special piece from the latest men’s Malo Spring – Summer 2022 collection that is my favourite this season. The polo shirt is perfect for the man who pays attention to details and leaves nothing to chance. This unusual Malo Makò Royal Blue Polo Shirt is a perfect example of the care and dedication of Malo artisans. This polo shirt is made of precious details like the French collar and the refined mother-of-pearl buttons make this polo shirt in Makò cotton special.

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.

MALO: An Extraordinary Italian Story about Cashmere with a long Tradition…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today we will introduce you to a new Italian brand that makes amazing cashmere products for all seasons. This story will give the insight how you can look fashionable and stylish for all seasons and be prepare for hot and warm spring-summer or cold and rainy autumn-winter season.

You all know that I am a big fan of well designed and extraordinary quality knitwear and I always try to show you some of the best brands that I am sure you will always find for yourself and your beloved ones the most beautiful great knitwear, clothing and accessories to complete any outfit.

Today’s story will be dedicated to a brand that has changed many things in the fashion industry, especially in the world of knitwear – Malo.

Malo (derived 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 sweater 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 the year 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.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see two special pieces from the latest men’s Malo Spring – Summer 2022 collection that are my favorites this season. The sweater is perfect for the man who pays attention to details and leaves nothing to chance. This unusual Malo kiwi green sweater is a perfect example of the care and dedication of Malo artisans. This sweater is made of 50% cashmere and 50% cotton.

The second piece from today’s post is the Malo navy joggers pants in 100% soft cashmere. It can be worn as a sporty piece, but for moments of relaxation, when we want to achieve a look of relaxed and casual sporty elegance. The quality is felt at the first touch, but not only that, but also the craftsmanship of the workers is hidden in every detail.

Today we will meet some new brands and remind some old friends of Mr.M blog who share the same values and vision.

I will start today’s post with an interesting story about footwear. Good choice of footwear during the cold period, especially during these changing weather conditions is extremely important because it is first important that footwear be comfortable, high quality and durable due to the possibility of sudden spring rains that are possible during the spring season, but this year we made sure that snow can fall in April.

This trademark signifies the quality, passion and originality of the Italian industry, which are certainly the words that describe this unique Italian footwear brand. Alberto Fasciani creates shoes and boots that are known around the world. Mr. Alberto Fasciani is guided exclusively by one motto, which caught my attention: “Whoever wears my footwear must feel as if it belongs to him from the very first time, as if he spent his whole life with it.” This emphasizes the essence of the work of Alberto Fasciani, whose main goal is to create comfortable and high quality shoes for the most picky men with refined fashion taste who know what they want to wear on their feet.

Today we will see again our old friends on Mr.M blog such as Woolrich, which you have opportunity to meet during last winter season in some of my previous fashion stories. Woolrich is a brand that was founded back in 1830 in the United States of America (USA) in the state of Pennsylvania. The basic idea of the brand was to equip people who cultivate an immense passion for nature, who do not see natural elements as a kind of obstacle, but as a life mover. One of the founders of the brand – John Rich once said: “Nature tests and inspires us equally, we are here to encourage our own desire for entertainment and learning about the world around us and of course about ourselves.”

Woolrich is a brand with a long history that has been producing sportswear and outerwear for more than 190 years. This brand is the oldest American outerwear brand. During his first decade of existence, Woolrich mainly created clothes for farmers and wood processors who had to work in extreme climatic conditions. In addition to them, Woolrich also supplied soldiers during the Civil War with uniforms and blankets that were made from the warmest wool in true American style. True to its heritage, the Woolrich brand is still one of the largest manufacturers when it comes to sportswear and outerwear.

Today, while writing this post, I was thinking about which three words could describe this amazing brand, and I think I came up with the right ones, which are: comfort, durability, resilience combined with simplicity and innovation. This brand nurtures a sporty, but at the same time elegant style that creates various collections every season. Special compositions of natural and artificial fibers create great pieces that are perfect for times when the outside temperatures are low and we need something to keep us warm. A timeless piece in the Woolrich collection is the Arctic Park, first introduced in 1972, designed to withstand the most extreme temperatures, available with or without a fur collar.

In today’s outfit post you have the opportunity to see the unique Woolrich luxury Polar parka which is made of special Italian eco wool and Loro Piana fabric. This parka is a unique and iconic winter piece that you should have in your wardrobe. This parka proves top expertise in creating practical pieces that exude modern appeal. Following the example of the legendary Arctic Park, this park you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of exclusive eco-wool Blacksheep, which is specially treated for wind and water resistant finishes produced by the Italian luxury brand Loro Piana.

Fantastic composition of duck down, spacious hood and practical pockets provide exceptional comfort and convenience while going out during the cold winter months. It is important to note that the lining of the pockets of this park is made of a special material that has been treated with Polygiene ViralOff® technology, which will have to destroy over 99% of microbes in a period of two hours.

If you want to be updated what new products Woolrich is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

Armand Nicolet: Iconic Swiss Watch Brand with Special Italian Taste and Design…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. We have to admit that this year, April surprised us quite a bit with an unexpected “cold wave”, so even some parts of Europe were covered with a “white cover”. That’s why I used the cold days to enjoy the winter magic and show you some new fashion novelties!

You all know how much I love watches and that I always try to show you some interesting brands of watches. Today we will learn something new about one luxury Swiss brand that makes unusual watches – Armand Nicolet.

Mr. Armand Nicolet was born in the town of Tramelan, a small town located in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. As the son of a celebrated watchmaker, he followed in his father’s footsteps and built his own small watch studio called the Atelier d’Horlogerie, to create his masterpiece in 1902. Unfortunately, in 1939, Mr. Armand Nicolet dies and his son Willy continues the family business.

During the first half of the 20th century, Tramelan became the third pole of the Swiss watch industry. During this period, Nicolet SA specialized in refining complicated mechanical movements for other well-known Swiss brands and specialized in the production of Venus movements whose components were composed of various sophisticated calibres.

Mr. Willy Nicolet was old and unfortunately did not have direct descendants to continue the family business, but fate had a second plan… Meeting Mr. Rolando Braga in 1987, a famous Italian entrepreneur and passionate lover of watches, who has been active in horology circles for more than 20 years , realized that he had found the ideal person to continue this brand success story with a new vision and mission.

Mr. Braga aims to reveal to the world buried treasures like the Armand Nicolet brand and show all the possibilities and creative abilities of the expert team behind this amazing brand. After several years spent reorganizing the brand, in 2000 the Armand Nicolet brand was officially introduced to the market at the Basel Fair and immediately gained worldwide popularity and recorded incredible success.

Armand Nicolet is one of the few independent watch brands that is still active in the territory of Bern and in Tramelan itself, known for its traditional watchmaking. The company has adopted the latest methods of work, while respecting the oldest watchmaking tradition. The entire process of creating and manufacturing Armand Nicolet watches takes place within the company from creative vision, design and production process to quality control.

HiSO: Canadian Art of Craftsmanship Luxury Shearlings

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today we will continue our story about the Canadian brand HiSO, except that today’s outfit will be in a more elegant edition, because I replaced my jeans with iconic formal classic trousers. Prepare your favorite snacks and some hot beverages and our “5 minutes” for Fashionable Friday can begin!

HiSO, formally known as the Hide Society, is a brand that possesses all Canadian characteristics to the core. Bearing in mind sustainability and fashion development, they have been successfully making luxury winter outerwear from alpaca, wool and shearlings for decades. Every step in creating their master-pieces, the HiSO brand takes an environmentally conscious approach when creating its products. Originally founded in Toronto’s Fashion District, the brand has grown from a small family boutique to an internationally recognized outerwear brand.

HiSO is one of the most renowned Canadian luxury winter outerwear brands. Due to the extremely difficult climatic conditions, the professional team of this brand is here to overcome all weather conditions and to design and adapt winter pieces that you will love. What is the secret to the success of this brand?

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

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

Exactly 20 years ago, in 2002, inspired by their efforts and building a family business from an early age, twin brothers Karl and Mark took over the company’s leadership with a new mission – to reposition and raise the brand to the world market, introducing a new name HiSO.

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

With the great desire to expand the range of products, the rebranding has led to the spread of precious fabrics (cashmere, wool and alpaca). HiSO bought a factory in Toronto, where all clothes made of precious fibers are now produced. Shearlings are still produced at HiSO’s European factory in Poland.

Soon after the transformation of the brand, HiSO became a favorite global name known for its Black Label division, which is focused on new markets.

In the fall of 2020, new inspiration emerged. Based on the achieved results, which was built on success with the HiSO Black Label, the White Label was born! Following the modern market of luxury and prestige, the White Label collection “dazzles” all fashion lovers with their designs who cannot satisfy their appetites for new fashion trends.

HiSO is one of the few brands that is actively engaged in an ecological approach to sustainable fashion through every step of creating their own garments. Whether alpaca, cashmere, wool or shearlings, HiSO works exclusively with environmentally conscious companies, providing the best methods and materials used to protect the environment.

HiSO leather and fur are of ethical origin, because they are a by-product of the food industry. Using this product essentially restores materials that would otherwise be disposed of and thus create waste. Leather and fur for shearlings are natural materials obtained from tanners that support sustainability according to international standards that regulate by-products of animal origin from their origin to the moment when they are produced for final-end use.

Respect for and maintenance of the vision of common values is maintained by HiSO through cooperation with suppliers who have similar views on the importance of sustainability. The benefits of this cooperation include: respect for the right to clean water, energy, energy management and reduced emissions and recycling.

HiSO’s Tennant shearling jacket that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of the highest quality leather and fur with the addition of fox fur on the collar. When buying your HiSO garment, you can always contact their team who will be at your disposal and help you choose the ideal piece for yourself or your loved one. Also, this brand offers custom-made winter jackets and coats, so you can provide yourself with a piece that will suit you. In addition, you can choose the type of material (leather or material) as well as the type of fur and color. HiSO is a brand that strives to fulfill all the needs and desires of customers in the right way and to be a part of the HiSO family with pleasure.

Today we are also continuing our fashion adventure with one well-known Swiss watch brand. 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.

When was the idea for this brand of sports watches born? Brothers Adolf and Alfred Kurt founded their own watch factory in the Swiss city of Grenchen. In this idyllic place at the foot of Jura Mountain between Solothurn and Bila, the brothers and their team of only three employees developed a brand within their family home. In a short time, they achieved great success and the Kurt brothers opened a factory and employed a large number of workers.

A few years later, in 1906 to be precise, the Kurt brothers presented a brand for their watches: “Grana”, abbreviated to “Granakus”, the Latin name Grenchen. The quality of these watches was immediately recognized and won several awards. In the 1920s, Alfred Kurt’s sons Erwin and Hans joined the company and led it through difficult times of the Great Depression, known as the Great Depression.

During the 1930s, the company increasingly used the new name Certina, for good reason: it is easily pronounced in all languages and is based on the Latin word “certus”, which means “sure”. The brand was officially registered in 1939, and in 1949 Certina was chosen to be the only official brand name.

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, carry. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a personal symbol of the brand since the 1960s. To this day, 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.

At the end of the fifties, more precisely in 1959, the company presented the first Certina watch with the DS concept. Certina DS is an automatic watch that is extremely resistant to shocks with a water resistance of up to 20 bar (200 meters). This sets new standards for the entire generation of watches.

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 clock 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!

There is no person in the world who can just hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life in general.

Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and a love for lasting masterpieces!

DRM: Design, Research and Manufacture as the key concepts…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion story on the Mr.M blog! I hope you are well and enjoy the winter magic, but I also hope you follow my Instagram summer stories from Sri Lanka as well. As I promised you couple days ago, you will soon have the opportunity to read new travel letters from Sri Lanka and the many adventures that await us in 2022.

In today’s post, I will present you an unusual Italian luxury brand whose work is based on 3 principles, which have been respected since its inception.

DRM is an Italian brand that creates men’s sports luxury clothing. The brand specializes in men’s outerwear and aims to meet the needs of the modern man who takes care of the quality, style and performance of the garments he wears.

Design, research and manufacture are the three key concepts of the brand philosophy, expressed in the acronym that makes up the DRM brand name. Let’s analyze together the meaning of the acronym that makes up the name of this brand:

Design: This brand can be characterized as a brand that nurtures the style of sports elegance and belongs to the group of sports deluxe market segment.

Research: Exceptional performance is required with the use of high quality and high performance fabrics to obtain a product that meets all the needs of comfort and practicality required by the current lifestyle.

Manufacture: Quality is a key and unavoidable item, and special attention is paid to finishing, attention to detail and personalization of products. It is a formula for a timeless, clean product that exudes elegance and minimalism.

The DRM-MAN brand was born in Fucecchio in November 2008 on the idea of Mr. Ferrero Rosati. Mr. Rosati, after founding Santacroce, a leading company in the production of leather goods, later taken over by the Prada Group, decides to embark on a new entrepreneurial adventure that soon becomes one of the most important manufacturing companies in Italy.

In addition to the production of men’s clothing of exceptional quality with undeniable success, there is also a DROMe line of clothing for women who are looking for unusual and quality pieces.

DRM is used only by Tuscan factories to produce products. Their goal is to support and protect the Italian supply chain, unique in the world in quality and workmanship, a concept known worldwide as “Made in Italy”.

All processes are subject to constant control by highly qualified staff to guarantee the highest quality. The most important process in production is testing clothes in order to achieve maximum comfort and exclusive quality. All components and materials used in the production of DRM jackets and coats come from certified Italian companies.

You can find DRM outerwear all over Europe and the world in special multi-brand stores as well as in selected department stores and some online shopping platforms, in Germany the best selection of this incredible Italian brand you can find in BRAUN Hamburg. If you want to be up to date and find out all the news that the DRM brand is preparing for this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

The turtleneck that complemented my today’s outfit is made of cashmere with a special handmade work that takes hours of work and that is why this sweater is so unique and radiates a special dose of “winter” elegance.

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

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

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

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

Of course, as you could see in some previous stories, my old friend that helps me not to be late, while still having one unusual masterpiece on hand, is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos.

OUTFIT

Jacket: DRM

Turtleneck: Aida Barni

Jeans: Jacob Cohen

Watch: Epos Switzerland

Gloves: Restelli

Sneakers: Jacob Cohen

The jeans you have the opportunity to see in today’s post are from the latest Jacob Cohen Autumn – Winter 2021/22 collection. It is a model from the limited series J622. As a person who has problems with wide hips and I rarely find good jeans that fit my silhouette, I had no problem choosing jeans because all Jacob Cohën jeans have a lot of elastin.

Also, since the whole outfit was in a certain casual – sporty tone, I decided to wear my Jacob Cohen sneakers made of pony hair in dark brown color. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered the beauty of winter shades of brown color together and I hope you got the inspiration for your perfect winter outfit! We will continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog soon! How did you like my outfit today?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the last year, I have returned to the good old habit of wearing watches, which I must admit I am glad and proud of! Today, I decided to take to the city one of my faithful allies who helps me not to be late, and at the same time to have an unusual masterpiece on hand is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

OUTFIT

Down-Jacket: Roberto Cavalli

Sweater: Cavalli Class

Trousers: Cavalli Class

High-Top Sneakers: Christian Louboutin via Mytheresa Man

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

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

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

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

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