Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Brunello Cucinelli, Fine Italian Craftsmanship Meets Refined Elegance…

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

This unexpected hobby of mine and writing fashion stories became interesting to me because I noticed that people found my stories interesting and inspiring, since my son regularly reads all your emails with questions about fashion. Honestly, I didn’t expect my writing to be such a success. I have to admit that your messages have given me extra strength and energy to continue through this difficult period and to get back to blogging again.

A few days ago, my son read me a couple of emails with questions about how I define elegance and refinement. The answer to that question is not simple, it’s a bit more complex because the true definition of elegance and refinement comes with age, sometimes I like to say that elegance is a journey of life. Elegance and refinement simply cannot be molded, there are no specific “fashion shackles” because everyone will experience these two terms in their own unique way.

Today I have the great honor and pleasure to present to you a timeless iconic brand that has laid some basic foundations since its inception and at the same time has become a symbol of elegance and refinement, and that is the Italian fashion house Brunello Cucinelli. When someone mentions this brand, I believe that many are aware that it is a luxury Italian fashion brand that has conquered the fashion scene with its quality materials and exceptional simplicity of cuts.

Fashion pieces from the Brunello Cucinelli collection are made so that they can last for seasons and years with the guarantee that you can leave something of exceptional quality to your descendants with a timeless cut that will always be fashionable. Each manufactured piece is designed so that it does not follow blind trends, but on the contrary remains its own and consistent with the style of timeless elegance and refinement. Brunello Cucinelli is a brand that cherishes the values of “quiet luxury”, that’s why you’ll never see an aggressive brand logo on their clothes, leather goods or other fashion accessories, but the design and material will tell the story for themselves.

Brunello Cucinelli is an Italian luxury fashion brand that sells menswear, womenswear and accessories in Europe, North America and East Asia. The company was founded by Mr. Brunello Cucinelli in 1978. Mr. Cucinelli started his fashion house in 1978 specializing in Mongolian cashmere clothing for women. Today, the company owns 94 of the 124 stores worldwide. A few years ago, more precisely in January 2017, the company launched its online web store.

Mr. Cucinelli controls and manages the brand through Fedone Srl. Cucinelli’s family fund owns 57% of the company’s shares, and has also set up a special fund for the benefit of his daughters, Camilla and Carolina, to guarantee the proper handover of his eponymous company. This is an inspiring fashion story about a family.

An impressive fact is that the company headquarters is located in a 14th-century castle on top of a hill in the middle of Umbria, an area known as the “green heart” of Italy. Brunello Cucinelli donates 20% of profits to its charitable foundation and pays workers wages that are 20% higher than the fashion industry average. Also interesting information is that the employees of the company have extremely flexible working hours and that e-mails are not allowed after working hours. This is one of the few fashion houses that have such good working conditions, which is commendable in today’s age of classical capitalism.

My outfit today is adorned with two pieces of clothing from the latest Brunello Cucinelli SS24 collection, namely this beautiful linen jacket and trousers. They say that wisdom is the gift of life when you don’t need it anymore and I learned that linen is an extremely difficult material to maintain and I always avoided it, but when I felt the linen quality of this blazer that you can see on me, I admit that I became a big fan of linen and after so many years i have included linen clothes in my wardrobe. In addition to the cut, colors and quality of the material, I was also delighted by the length of this blazer, which is ideal for all occasions, from going to work, to performing daily duties in the city, and for going to some more festive events of a different character. In addition to the blazer, the other piece that simply delighted me are these pants, which contain a high percentage of silk and of course the most important thing is the fantastic color that goes with absolutely everything.

Now we come to the part where I will explain to you a classic example of compulsive shopping, I believe almost every woman will find herself in my example. I went with my family on vacation to New York and while walking along the avenues, I came across a glittering window display of the famous American brand Michael Kors. In the central part of the window, there was this bag, if I remember correctly, the model was called “Ring” because of the shape of its handle. Of course, I didn’t think much and simply invited the whole family to a wonderful family gathering in the shop, as always I won and this was just the beginning of my craziness.

When I entered the store, I noticed that special section with bags and fashion details made of exotic skins and like any woman, I fell in love at first sight. Since I belong to the generation that has to complete everything, I found ballet flats, a belt and a wallet with my bag… I didn’t think much, I bought everything and then I didn’t have money for anything else. To make the tragedy worse, I haven’t worn this bag for years because I lost interest in it because it didn’t fit with my fashion pieces because the color is specific and requires a woman to have an adequate outfit. I wore all the other pieces, except the bag, until today, I think it’s been more than 10 years… It’s a pain for us women, who just want everything at the moment, we don’t think rationally, we experience a blackout of the mind in the store and we get carried away by desire. Well, who knows, maybe this bag has a bright future in fashion because you never know when I’ll decide to carry it again.

This brooch that you see in today’s post, as well as the button (converted from a brooch) are pieces of jewelry that I inherited from my mother. All the things I got from my mom have a great sentimental value for me, and after so many years, every time I look at those pieces, I remember some beautiful precious memories from my youth, as well as the many activities I happily filled my time with. Somehow even today after so much time, I always have the feeling that all those dear people are close to me, even though they are not physically with us.

Now we come to the most interesting piece of this outfit – sneakers! I’m one of those women who simply didn’t wear sneakers in my life, somehow I always ran away from them and somehow, in my opinion, sneakers were more for performing sports activities or for some long walks in nature. Even when I was a girl, I never wore sneakers, I always attached more importance to other types of footwear.

When I got a collaboration with the French fashion house Lanvin, as always my son and his team are there to solve those doubts, I’m here to choose something to my taste that I think I can express in the right way. I chose the agreed number of products, but I got a shock when the package arrived. I thought it was a mistake, but my son told me that I have to learn to get out of my comfort zone and adapt in my own way.

I have to admit that at first I didn’t give the sneakers a chance, I didn’t even know what they looked like anymore because I didn’t take them out of the bags but felt the shape, realized that they were sneakers and thought it was a mistake. What exactly made me give these sneakers a chance?

As I felt let down at the moment, my son asked me if I had looked at the sneakers by any chance, I admitted that I had not and gave myself a few days to recover from the shock. One morning while drinking coffee, I saw a box and decided to look at them anyway. I was interested in the fact that they are made of python and that they are not classic sneakers but have a particularly elegant note. I wanted to put them on and I realized that they are very comfortable and unusual. After that I remembered a Michael Kors bag in a similar color and got the idea for this outfit that you have the opportunity to see on the blog today.

What is the story of this famous French brand? Lanvin is a French luxury fashion house based in Paris. Founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, it is the oldest French fashion house still in operation. Since 2018, it has been a subsidiary of the Lanvin Group based in Shanghai. The House of Lanvin was named after its founder Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. Lanvin was founded in 1867 and opened its first store in rue du Marche Saint Honore in 1885.

Lanvin made clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac, which began to attract the attention of many wealthy people, who were looking for creations for their children. Soon Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, who were included in the clientele of her new boutique on rue Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris. In 1909, Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture, marking her formal status as a couturier. The Lanvin logo was inspired by a photo taken of Jeanne Lanvin while attending a ball with her daughter in 1907. As Albert Elbaz said, “It is not a lion and it is not a horse. It’s a mother and daughter, I think the logo is very emotional.” Since 1923, the Lanvin empire has included a paint factory in Nanterre.

When Lanvin died in 1946, ownership of the company passed to her daughter Marguerite, who shared the management of the company from 1942 with a cousin, then an expert in the fashion industry. Since Marie-Blanche de Polignac was childless when she died in 1958, ownership of the House of Lanvin went to a cousin, Yves Lanvin. From the mid-1960s until the takeover by L’Oreal in 1996, Lanvin was led by Bernard Lanvin. The export department was in the original factory in Nanterre where all the perfumes were produced and bottled. The administrative seat was in Paris. In 1979, Lanvin bought its independence from Squibb USA and Paris organized a major PR promotional tour in the United States that same year. Midland Bank bought a stake in the company from the family in March 1989 and hired Leon Bressler to restore the firm’s faded image. However, in February 1990, Midland folded and sold Lanvin to Orcofa, a French holding company run by the Vuitton family.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see their new model of Bumper sneakers that are completely made of real python skin in combo with suede leather. This model exists in various variations and combinations of materials and each sneaker is unique and unusual.

Of course, the piece that every stylish woman needs and that helps you “hide” from the world when you need a break – glasses! I “accidentally” found these glasses in the house, I liked the golden effect of the mirror and had to try them on. I immediately remembered my college days and decided to “borrow” them.

These sunglasses are from my son, who was lovely so I got them as a gift and now I love wearing them. It is the British eyewear brand Linda Farrow, which has really interesting models of sunglasses and optical frames.

If you want to stay updated and find out what new models of optical and sunglasses frames Linda Farrow has has prepared for us this fashion season, follow this eyewear brand on the social network Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. Soon I will show you other spring outfits that can serve as inspiration for this fashion season. 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 understand the reason for my unexpected absence, but there will be time to catch up and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Special note: All my photos from today’s post have been specially edited to meet the expectations of blog partners, as well as the readers themselves while respecting the aesthetics and guidelines of fashion photography. Unfortunately, the face and neck lifting operations did not go well and due to the negligence of the medical team from Egypt, I suffered serious aesthetic and health consequences. In agreement with my legal team, I wrote a post with all the details that can be found on this LINK.

Best Regards,

Rose

ZEGNA: The Beauty of the Refined Elegance of Linen…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of another spring fashion story, where together we discovered the beauty and splendor of Italian fashion with the cult fashion house ZEGNA, the elegance and prestige of elegance with the luxury Italian brand Loro Piana, as well as the beauty of handmade Italian shoes with Fratelli Rossetti, partners with whom fashion stories are a real adventure.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Why Everyone Still Loves Dior?

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

I start today’s post with the answer to the question that you could read in the very title of this post. There is one very good reason why fashion lovers still love this undisputed French brand of luxury high “haute couture” fashion – Christian Dior, better known today as the rebranded DIOR. My task today was to create an unusual, extraordinary, minimalists and at the same time refined fashion outfit with the MYTHERESA shopping platform.

Dior is one of the few fashion houses that is based on the ideals of feminine beauty and classic, timeless fashion, over the decades it has evolved into an unusual bold, feminist and powerful design, which has remained somehow true to its roots. In today’s post, I will try to write you a little more about the history of Dior and how this French brand grew into what it is today.

I believe many of you have heard about MYTHERESA shopping platform on Mr.M blog, but I would like to introduce you to this electronic fashion paradise. MYTHERESA is one of the leading global luxury e-commerce platforms operating in over 130 countries. Founded as a boutique in 1987, MYTHERESA launched online in 2006 and offers ready-to-wear, shoes, bags and accessories for women, men and children, as well as lifestyle products.

The MYTHERESA online store was founded in 2006 by Susanne and Christoph Botschen and is connected to the multi-brand store in Munich (formerly the THERESA store). In 2014, the THERESA store and mytheresa.com were acquired by the American luxury retailer Neiman Marcus for €150 million, giving Neiman Marcus greater access to international customers and strengthening their e-commerce technology.

During Neiman Marcus’ bankruptcy in 2020, the company began the process of spinning off Mytheresa as an independent entity. In January 2019, Mytheresa launched a children’s clothing category, and in January 2020, Mytheresa Men was launched. In May 2022, a new homeware and lifestyle category followed. In 2022, Mytheresa expanded its luxury offering to include home decor and lifestyle products.

The novelty they presented this year is the launch of certified second-hand watches from over 25 luxury brands, such as Audemars Piguet and Cartier, in cooperation with the Swiss jewelry and watch company Bucherer. As a global retailer, Mytheresa operates in 8 languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Korean.

In today’s post, you will see some fashion pieces from brands that you can find on the MYTHERESA online shopping platform, such as: DIOR, Roger Vivier, Max Mara and Cartier.

Let’s go back to the brand that is the subject of today’s fashion story. Dior as a French brand, dating back to the 1940s, provides fashion lovers around the world with some of the most beautiful garments, be it cocktail ready-to-wear or haute couture gowns on the red carpet or luxurious everyday pieces that are sure to catch the eye of everyone who they see you. This timeless brand has also stood the test of time, evolving with each creative leader who has passed through its doors. The fashion house has hosted some of the most incredible talent in the industry and I firmly believe it will continue to do so for years to come.

When and where did the fashion adventure called Christian Dior begin? Although it was unofficially created in 1946, the Dior brand states in its data that 1947 is the year of its beginning, because that is when the first collection of the fashion house debuted. Christian Dior launched the brand in Paris with a shop at the famous 30 Avenue Montaigne street. An interesting fact is that it took less than three months from the creation of the brand to present the first collection on February 12, 1947.

Mr. Dior had a deep love and respect for art and ran an art gallery in France before entering fashion. After closing his gallery during the Great Depression, he worked for fashion designer Robert Piguet and then-couture designer Lucien Lelong. Dior was still willing to have his work shown, which led him to create his own fashion house in 1946, and Christian Dior was born.

Soon, Dior became a globally famous fashion brand. He opened a store on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York in 1948, making Dior’s first official entry into the American market. With the global launch came an expanded collection. Dior started with his fragrance notes, introducing Miss Dior, which he dedicated to his sister. It was around this time that Dior realized that his brand needed to provide an overall fashion experience in order to continue his conceptual vision and change the design of his brand.

Every Dior customer could have coats, shoes, hats and every other piece necessary to fully capture the new “fashion wave” from head to toe. The Dior brand continued to grow, and Dior himself continued to dress the biggest stars of the time. He even created the famous Marlene Dietrich for her role in the 1950 Alfred Hitchcock film “Stage Fright”. His creations remained a permanent part of her wardrobe, like many other divas of the late 40s and early 50s of the last century.

Christian Dior died in 1957 as a result of a massive heart attack at the age of 52. The entire fashion world mourned the loss of an industry icon who disappeared from the fashion scene too soon. To maintain the soul of the brand after Dior’s death, Mr. Yves Saint Laurent (Yves Saint Laurent) took on the role of artistic director of the brand. The 21-year-old continued Dior’s legacy, largely keeping the original creative vision intact. However, he sought to bring the brand to a softer silhouette, loosening the cinched waists and dropping some of the structure. The new collections were once unfailingly hit or miss as the industry scrambled to find someone else to lead the Christian Dior brand. When Yves Saint Laurent was called up to serve in the French army in 1960, he was released from the brand.

What is the story of the Lady Dior bag? This star of the French fashion house Dior was born in 1995, this bag first appeared on the hand of Lady Diana, Princess of Wales on her trip to Paris. Before that moment, this Dior bag didn’t have a name, but because of the historic moment with this bag on her hand, it got the perfect name: Lady Dior.

This bag is a testament to the exceptional taste in the Dior ateliers, the Lady Dior bag is a continuation of Christian Dior’s heritage, each element is carefully crafted, in line with the heritage of the house. The metal pendants that fall from the belt are inspired by the amulets he loved so much, and the signature stitching is familiar from the Napoleon III chairs that guests of Dior runway shows would sit on: a thread of history runs through each one.

The Lady Dior bag you see in today’s post is a mini version and is made of genuine python leather in pastel brown-gold tones with gold metallic details.

Of course, the fashion statement piece that every stylish woman needs and that helps you “hide” from the world when you need a break – sunglasses! This famous Panthère de Cartier sunglasses model is a timeless model, a piece that can be passed down to generations to come! I would like to thank the MYTHERESA team for the wonderful gift.

Certain models of optical frames and sunglasses from the Cartier collection can also be found on the MYTHERESA online shopping platform.

Another nice fashion novelty that I received from the MYTHERESA team are these beautiful Roger Vivier ballet flats. Roger Henri Vivier was a French fashion designer who specialized in shoes. He is best known for creating the modern stiletto heel and for placing a chrome buckle on the elegant black high heel shoe, which became a must-have fashion accessory for many celebrities and stars of the 50s and 60s. He named his brand after himself – Roger Vivier. Italian fashion group Tod’s SpA has acquired luxury brand Roger Vivier, adding the label credited with creating the heel.

Some models of shoes and fashion accessories – bags from the Roger Vivier collection can also be found on the MYTHERESA online shopping platform.

Fashion-conscious women sometimes want to create the impression that they are a bit naughty or frivolous, thus showing the world that they are both fashionable and carefree. This diamond encrusted lizard brooch is a perfect example of jewelry produced during the Victorian Aesthetic Period. Crafted in 18K gold with shell-cut diamonds, it has a lovely curve, giving the piece quite the feel as if it’s ready to jump right onto your shoulder and join you for a dazzling stroll around town! I bought it a long time ago, maybe 20 years ago, in an old jewelry store in London. The jeweler had a wonderful display full of brooches from the animal kingdom and I just had to buy it.

Another piece of jewelry is pearls, which I simply adore. In collaboration with YOKO London leading luxury pearl jeweler. The brand, founded in 1973, has evolved over three generations of the Hakimian family. Their insatiable team travels the world to source the world’s finest pearls, many of which boast unique natural colors and exceptional sizes. Their talented designers and artisans work together in their London workshop to create pieces that follow all the trends in the jewelry world, combining contemporary aesthetics with timeless elegance.

Each pearl is hand-selected for each design, and the creations are intricately crafted to celebrate the stunning beauty of these precious gems. Their dedicated team has been known to spend up to a year finding a single pearl that is perfect in size, color and quality to complete a design.

This classic pearl necklace features a striking string of 6mm Japanese Akoya pearls attached to an 18k yellow gold ball clasp. A timeless piece, this necklace will add a touch of glamor to any outfit it’s paired with. Each pearl is perfectly matched and hand strung by experts in the UK.

Max Mara is a world famous Italian fashion brand. It was founded in 1951 in Reggio Emilia by Mr. Achille Maramotti. This legendary brand sponsors and awards the Max Mara Women’s Art Award. Achille Maramotti began creating wardrobes in 1947, and officially founded the Max Mara fashion house in 1951. How did the brand name come about?

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

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

Max Mara is my favorite brand because it absolutely meets my criteria when it comes to wardrobe, which are: quality, interesting models and cuts, good selection of materials, as well as fine processing of materials. Today I decided to show you my favorite piece from the latest Max Mara collection for SS24: a timeless dress with an unusual cut made of satin.

I really like the new collection of this Italian fashion house and I’m glad we have a nice collaboration. In a future post during this summer season, I will try to style this beautiful dress that I received from my dear friends from Max Mara Germany.

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.

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.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. Soon I will show you other spring outfits that can serve as inspiration for this fashion season. 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 understand the reason for my unexpected absence, but there will be time to catch up and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Special note: All my photos from today’s post have been specially edited to meet the expectations of blog partners, as well as the readers themselves while respecting the aesthetics and guidelines of fashion photography. Unfortunately, the face and neck lifting operations did not go well and due to the negligence of the medical team from Egypt, I suffered serious aesthetic and health consequences. In agreement with my legal team, I wrote a post with all the details that can be found on this LINK.

Best Regards,

Rose

FAY: Italian Style combining Tradition with Quality…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. We start today’s fashion adventure with new friends of Mr.M blog – FAY. Maybe this brand sounds unfamiliar to you, but if I mention the Tod’s brand, then many of you will recognize the brand because you had the opportunity to get to know this luxury Italian brand better over the past years on the Mr.M blog.

Tod’s S.p.A. is a company specializing in the production of footwear, clothing and fashion accessories with its brands Tod’s, Hogan, Fay and Roger Vivier. This fashion story is the result of the work and effort of the Della Valle family.

The history of the brand dates back to the early 1980s in the USA, when Diego and Andrea Della Valle discovered work jackets worn by the Maine fire department. Models of legendary jackets forged in the USA, cooled in fashionable Italy, Realizing the potential, they took over the Fay brand, a specialized manufacturer of technical clothing for fishermen and firefighters, bringing it to Italy with a very clear idea: to adapt work-wear to the urban environment.

Fay started its fashion story as a menswear brand, but along the way experienced a magical evolution in the womenswear market, winning the hearts of women around the world who always know how to appreciate a soft feminine cut, as well as the ability to adapt to any body type without losing sight of quality and class .

Fay work jackets became a great solution for city life, and soon rose to cult status in capitals around the world: “Fay 4 Ganci“. The constantly reworked iconic jacket is now followed by a clothing line, made recognizable by its innovative materials and timeless authentic Italian outerwear features. “Gancio” – a cult and easily recognizable symbol of the world of work-wear – expresses an always current attitude to the outdoors. It takes pride of place in durable, versatile and timeless clothing.

Fay Archive – The brand’s journey began in 2019, fusing the true spirit of American work-wear with innate Italian style. The Fay Archive goes back to Fay’s DNA, celebrating her origins and expanding them to suit every conceivable type of adventure, from city life to the great outdoors.

The fashion group Tod’s is known for its national and international socially responsible projects of sustainable development. One of the most famous projects is “Tod’s for the Colosseum” – the restoration of the Colosseum, a symbol of Italian history.

The intervention plan for the restoration of the Colosseum is a project commissioned by the Delegate Commissioner for the Archaeological Areas of Rome and Ostia Antica, in collaboration with the Special Group for the Protection of the Colosseum and the Archaeological Area of Rome, and was implemented thanks to the selfless support of Tod’s Group. The first phase of the works has been completed and included the renovation of the northern and southern facades, covering an area of about 13,300 square meters and the replacement of the arch closing system with the construction of new gates.

The renovation plan will continue with the renovation of the basement of the Colosseum, the standardization and implementation of the system and the construction of a service center that enables the execution of additional support activities for visitors to this cultural monument.

The second phase of the works, which began in December 2018, under the leadership of the new autonomous institute Parco Archeologico del Colosseo, included the area of the hypogea, a “monument within a monument” a kind of amphitheater that is located below the arena and was invisible to spectators in ancient times . More than 80 people participated in the restoration work, including archaeologists, restorers, architects, engineers and other experts. At the end of the works, a 160-meter-long promenade was installed, accessible to all visitors, which gave visitors the opportunity to see a hitherto unexplored part of the Colosseum that was not feasible before.

Tod’s as a brand stood out for its quality leather and models that come from artisanal shoemakers. Mr. Diego Della Valle’s idea was to create a shoe suitable for both formal and informal occasions, with a casual, comfortable, simple but refined taste. On the other hand, FAY stood out with its refined sports elegance and jackets that the whole world loved.

Today, the FAY brand represents the pinnacle of Italian fashion and, in addition to work jackets, produces clothing, knitwear and fashion accessories that have found their place in the hearts of celebrities across Hollywood. My outfit today is decorated with a yellow quilted jacket, a summer knitted T-shirt and trousers from the new FAY’s SS24 collection. The jacket is a classic timeless model and can always be found in the FAY collection.

Sneakers: Lanvin via MYTHERESA Men

Lanvin is a French luxury fashion house based in Paris. Founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, it is the oldest French fashion house still in operation. Since 2018, it has been a subsidiary of the Lanvin Group based in Shanghai. The House of Lanvin was named after its founder Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. Lanvin was founded in 1867 and opened its first store in rue du Marche Saint Honore in 1885.

Lanvin made clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac, which began to attract the attention of many wealthy people, who were looking for creations for their children. Soon Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, who were included in the clientele of her new boutique on rue Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris. In 1909, Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture, marking her formal status as a couturier. The Lanvin logo was inspired by a photograph taken of Jeanne Lanvin while attending a ball with her daughter in 1907. As Albert Elbaz said, “It is not a lion and it is not a horse. It’s mother and daughter, I find the logo very emotional.” Since 1923, the Lanvin empire has included a paint factory in Nanterre.

When Lanvin died in 1946, ownership of the company passed to her daughter Marguerite, who shared the management of the company from 1942 with a cousin, then an expert in the fashion industry. Since Marie-Blanche de Polignac was childless when she died in 1958, ownership of the House of Lanvin went to a cousin, Yves Lanvin. From the mid-1960s until the takeover by L’Oreal in 1996, Lanvin was led by Bernard Lanvin. The export department was in the original factory in Nanterre where all the perfumes were produced and bottled. The administrative seat was in Paris. In 1979, Lanvin bought its independence from Squibb USA and Paris organized a major PR promotional tour in the United States that same year. Midland Bank bought a stake in the company from the family in March 1989 and hired Leon Bressler to restore the firm’s faded image. However, in February 1990, Midland folded and sold Lanvin to Orcofa, a French holding company run by the Vuitton family.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see their new model of Bumper sneakers that are completely made in white leather. This model exists in various variations and combinations of materials and each sneaker is unique and unusual.

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of another spring fashion story, where together we discovered the beauty and splendor of Italian fashion with the cult fashion house FAY, the elegance and prestige of sports elegance with the luxurious French brand Lanvin in collaboration with the luxury online shopping platform MYTHERESA Men, partners with whom fashion stories are a real adventure.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Gabriela Hearst X MYTHERESA, a New Era of Sustainable Luxury

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

The fact that I am opening this spring season with a new brand from South America, more precisely from Uruguay, which over time has become a symbol of sustainable luxury – Gabriela Hearst makes me happy. My task today was to create an elegant fashion outfit with the MYTHERESA shopping platform.

I believe many of you have heard about MYTHERESA shopping platform on Mr.M blog, but I would like to introduce you to this electronic fashion paradise. MYTHERESA is one of the leading global luxury e-commerce platforms operating in over 130 countries. Founded as a boutique in 1987, MYTHERESA launched online in 2006 and offers ready-to-wear, shoes, bags and accessories for women, men and children, as well as lifestyle products.

The MYTHERESA online store was founded in 2006 by Susanne and Christoph Botschen and is connected to the multi-brand store in Munich (formerly the THERESA store). In 2014, the THERESA store and mytheresa.com were acquired by the American luxury retailer Neiman Marcus for €150 million, giving Neiman Marcus greater access to international customers and strengthening their e-commerce technology.

During Neiman Marcus’ bankruptcy in 2020, the company began the process of spinning off Mytheresa as an independent entity. In January 2019, Mytheresa launched a children’s clothing category, and in January 2020, Mytheresa Men was launched. In May 2022, a new homeware and lifestyle category followed. In 2022, Mytheresa expanded its luxury offering to include home decor and lifestyle products.

The novelty they presented this year is the launch of certified second-hand watches from over 25 luxury brands, such as Audemars Piguet and Cartier, in cooperation with the Swiss jewelry and watch company Bucherer. As a global retailer, Mytheresa operates in 8 languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Korean.

In today’s post, you will see some fashion pieces from brands that you can find on the MYTHERESA online shopping platform, such as: Gabriela Hearst, Magda Butrym and Saint Laurent.

Gabriela Hearst is a luxury fashion brand that has women’s and men’s collections of ready-to-wear and fashion accessories, built on the principles of timelessness, uncompromising quality and sustainability. Born in Uruguay, Gabriela Hearst grew up on her family’s Santa Isabel ranch in Paisando, surrounded by animals, where the notion of luxury meant that things were beautifully crafted and made to last. Gabriela attended the British School in Montevideo and studied communications at O.R.T. University of Uruguay. After more than a decade in design in New York, Gabriela honored her family’s legacy by launching her eponymous brand in fall 2015, as well as taking over operations at her father’s ranch in Uruguay.

Gabriela wanted to create a brand that reflects a slower pace and process: where things are made with care and detail, where tradition is more important than trend, where every piece has a purpose. Gabriela’s commitment is to create a strong and modern collection without compromising her ethics and core values, taking into account where the materials come from and who makes them: luxury with a conscience or in other words, “honest luxury”. Each garment is an object in which Gabriela can translate her desire – made of impeccable construction and uncompromising, noble materials.

Together they tell the story of the places she loves that made her who she is: Uruguay and New York. Jackets and coats are lined with this special silver fabric that prevents cell phone radiation from reaching the female reproductive organs. Aloe treated flax, a much fuller fiber than cotton because it absorbs less water than cotton, and at the same time you can eat flaxseed so it has extra nutritional value. Combining the utilitarian and the beautiful, she wanted to design long-lasting garments that hold memories for the woman who wears them. She is a real woman, attractive and powerful, but there is a lot of action in her life and these clothes are her uniform, her armor.

The aim is to give customers more transparency by sharing the supply chain and giving them access to learn more about their clothing journey.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see the Gabriela Hearst jacket from the latest SS24 collection, a refreshing orange color made from the finest natural materials that are a symbol of sustainable luxury. Since I am a Leo as my zodiac sign and I like things that sparkle, I decided to change the buttons on the jacket and put something that is recognizable in my style. You can also find certain pieces from the Gabriela Hearst women’s collection on the MYTHERESA online shopping platform.

If you want to stay updated and find out what new things Gabriela Hearst has prepared for us this SS24 fashion season, follow this incredible fashion house on Facebook and Instagram.

The second fashion designer I want to introduce to you is Magda Butrym, a Polish luxury fashion designer who founded her brand in 2014. Magda Bytrum created her own view of femininity, shaping a unique identity for women around the world. She redefines craftsmanship, creating a contemporary vision of romanticism in fashion. It connects the past with the future, minimalism with sexuality, elegance with lightness, strength with sensitivity.

Magda Butrym collaborates with independent artisans from all over Poland, enriching the highest quality fabrics with hand-knitted pieces, knitted leather and hand-embroidered ornaments. On one occasion Ms. Butrym explained her creative vision: “I don’t want to define women. I want to empower them. I want us all to feel comfortable in our own skin, happy, powerful and confident. We should all be our own muses!”

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see Magda Butrym pants of unusual cut with wide legs from the latest Spring – Summer 2024 collection in iconic white color. Certain pieces from the Magda Butrym women’s collection can also be found on the MYTHERESA online shopping platform.

Brooch: Saint Laurent via MYTHERESA

Pearl Necklace: MIKIMOTO

Ballet Flats: BURBERRY

As for jewelry, today I decided on a brooch from the Saint Laurent collection, which you can find on the MYTHERESA shopping platform. The pearl necklace is from my personal collection that I bought 15 years ago and it was made by MIKIMOTO jewelers. I think these pieces have refreshed and enriched my outfit today because I am a big pearl lover.

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.

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.

Every lady who wants to achieve an elegant look must always have nice shoes. This time I decided on ballet flats from the famous British brand Burberry. I got these shoes from my son a couple of years ago when he went to London Fashion Week and surprised me with these unusual Burberry ballet flats which are made of real python skin in an unusual shade of orange color. Years have passed, I honestly haven’t had the chance to wear both ballet flats until today when I got this amazing Gabriela Hearst blazer.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. Soon I will show you other spring outfits that can serve as inspiration for this fashion season. 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 understand the reason for my unexpected absence, but there will be time to catch up and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Special note: All my photos from today’s post have been additionally and specially processed to meet the expectations of blog partners, as well as the readers themselves while respecting the aesthetics and guidelines of fashion photography. Unfortunately, the face and neck lifting operations did not go well and due to the negligence of the medical team from Egypt, I suffered serious aesthetic and health consequences. In agreement with my legal team, I wrote a post with all the details that can be found on this LINK.

Roberto Cavalli: A Symbol of Enchanting Casual Sporty Elegance…

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

Roberto Cavalli is a famous Italian luxury fashion company founded by designer Roberto Cavalli in Osmannore, Florence, during the 1970s. This brand has become famous in the fashion world for its colorful animal prints on leather and textiles. Roberto Cavalli produces and sells haute couture – a first line consisting of limited runway models, ready-to-wear products that are divided into several fashion lines, as well as fashion accessories, including handbags, glasses, watches, shoes, perfumes and jewelry. The company also develops an interior design program for high-end buildings and hotels.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2010, Roberto Cavalli fashion house presented an exclusive show collection in Paris, which included most of its iconic dresses for which the brand has become recognizable. In recent years, under the leadership of Roberto Cavalli, the new interior design division Roberto Cavalli Home debuted at the 2012 Salone del Mobile.

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

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

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

If you want to stay updated and find out what the Roberto Cavalli brand has in store for the new fashion season, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

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

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

In today’s post you have the chance to see a special item, a turtleneck sweater from the latest men’s Loro Piana Autumn-Winter 2023/24 collection, which is just a small piece of my favorites this season due to their signature elegance and my love for neutral colors. Made from 100% cashmere, this beige turtleneck sweater is perfect for the man who pays attention to details and leaves nothing to chance.

This elegant cashmere turtleneck in beige color, is perfect for all occasions and extremely easy to match with other colors. 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.

OUTFIT

Jacket: Roberto Cavalli

Turtleneck sweater: Loro Piana

Jeans: Jacob Cohën

Boots: Johnstons of Elgin x Joseph Cheaney

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or any message for me, you can write 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 page. I’ll see you soon!

With Love,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: GEMMI, Beauty of Fur Casual Elegance…

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

Today I will present to you one of my favorite fur pieces that you have had the opportunity to see this season on the Mr.M blog. Gemmi is a new partner of Mr.M blog, a luxury brand of jackets and coats from Finland. All Gemmi pieces are painstakingly crafted in the Gemmi factory in Finland with the help of skilled and experienced craftsmen and tailors. The materials they use are natural and sustainable and selected for their quality characteristics and responsible production.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In today’s fashion story, I will present you unusual gloves that are made of the finest lambskin. M.Smithson (GKJ-9456) is a women’s model of gloves with Swarovski stones, made of lambskin. The model is distinguished by the application of Swarovski stones on the back of the gloves and a small leather flap. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

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

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

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

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

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

The sneakers are really unusual because they are made of a combination of cashmere and mink fur details. The color of these sneakers is amazing live and because of the neutrality of the pastel color, these sneakers go perfectly with any outfit! In a future post I will try to style them with a Max Mara bag and a coat that I got from my dear friends from Max Mara.

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.

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.

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

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

Best Regards,

Rose

AIDA BARNI: Discover the Refinement of Luxury Italian Knitwear…

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

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are also a good investment and practical gift during the fall-winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater, it is a gift from the heart, because a cashmere sweater carries a certain symbolism with it.

Aida Barni is a brand that belongs to the Annapurna group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and world manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines, Annapurna and Aida Barni.

Annapurna uses all the latest production techniques available on the market, from cotton looms to the latest and most advanced knitwear machines of all sizes. The current production capacity is about 120,000 pieces per year. It is important to note that the entire production cycle is performed in Italy, more precisely in the factory of the company located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the province of the same name located in the heart of Italy – Tuscany.

“Made in Italy” is more than a production concept, but this brand has proven to be much more than the perfect cashmere sweater on a store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression to remember.

Annapurna is a name that evokes everyone with exceptional mountain landscapes, especially the mountain range in the Himalayas where goats live with their winter fleece, hiding the soft, warm “cloak” that made them so famous.

Aida Barni is an iconic and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a goal for a woman who decided to enter the world of business in the late seventies and reach the very top of this challenging and one of the most difficult sectors of the market.

The Aida Barni brand was created as an artistic expression of the way of life and existence, the essence of unstressed chic, refined luxury. A collection for men and women dedicated to everyone who loves timeless and elegant knitwear that encompasses true elegance in the preciousness of materials, shapes and details.

The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Customers of the Aida Barni brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Best Regards,

Rose
