Ron Dorff: Elegant and Urban notes of minimalism…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my new post! I hope you are doing great and beware of this health catastrophe that marked this 2020 year. Today I have prepared a new fashion treat for you, which is also a continuation of my story about the unique Ron Dorff brand.

If by any chance you missed a previous post dedicated to this brand that is an amazing mix of Swedish functionality and French elegance or you just want to remember some details visit this link.

Today’s post will be a little different with the addition of elegant and urban notes of minimalism that fashion experts associate with the Ron Dorff brand.

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see what Ron Dorff’s sports and street clothing combination looks like, while today I present you urban and somewhat elegant pieces.

Let’s remember a little, Ron Dorff is a brand that extremely cares about Swedish practicality and simplicity – minimalism while respecting all “French fashion laws”. Their motto and guiding idea is: “Discipline is not a dirty word!”.

Diligent work, constant improvement and dedication are the elements that have kept this brand in the fashion world. Over time, this brand has managed to stand out from others and become synonymous with quality and well-designed sportswear.

In the new collection, Ron Dorff proved that sportswear can also have some elegant notes.

Today’s clothing combination represents Ron Dorff’s idea of what a young street “gentleman” should really look like, where the most important thing is to achieve the best possible effect while respecting the laws of elegance and minimalism.

In the new Autumn / Winter 2020 collection by Ron Dorff, the designers found their inspiration in the unique color palette of Scandinavia. The colors in the new collection signify what it looks like 24 hours a day in a ordinary Nordic day that begins at clear dawn with a collection of colors from the “Arctic Dawn” palette, followed at dusk with a palette from the “Arctic Twilight” collection and ends in the darkest tones of the night with colors from special palettes of the “After Dark” collection.

This beautiful white sweater with a shawl collar is inspired by the famous knitted Nordic sailor sweaters. Made from 100% breathable recycled organic cotton that provides an extremely comfortable feeling and allows the skin to breathe.

Finished which is decorated with ribbed cuffs that differ from the rest of the sweater pattern, waistband and a modern collar.

The trousers you can see in today’s post are a new, longer adaptation of the cult tennis pants that Ron Dorff normally produces. A model that captivates with elegance, made of extremely resistant cotton with an admixture of polyester, which guarantees the retention of the original shape over time.

The side pockets are decorated with two pairs of discreetly lacquered black Ron Dorff eyelets by which this brand is recognizable.

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see these urban perfect white sneakers that are handmade from the finest calfskin with white waxed flat cotton laces and a sole made of natural plant rubber.

Of course, they also have the symbol of this brand, two discreet black lacquered RD eyelets. Interesting information is that all Ron Dorff sneakers are made in Portugal.

Of course, today my best leather friend Picard “Buddy” is here with me, which you had the opportunity to see last year in my fashion stories, he even kept me company during my unforgettable adventure in Azerbaijan.

Today he is here with me on the streets of Berlin and this way I would like to thank my friends from Picard who connected us!

It was a great honor and pleasure for me to bring you closer to the work of this unusual brand through two spot-elegant clothing combinations. In the following posts, you will have the opportunity to see some more pieces of clothing that I really liked in the new collection of the Ron Dorff brand.

Angelo Galasso, synonymous with Italian Luxury world of Elegance…

My dear fashionistas, I sincerely hope that you are doing great and that you are ready for another fashion story from the streets of Berlin. Have you ever thought about the truth of the quotes: “Fashion as a way of life.” or “Fashion as a philosophy of life”. Are there just empty stories or is there something more hidden behind these words?

Fashion is just one of the elements that make up our daily lives better. From an early age, our parents first prepare us for our first outings, some important events, and then we gradually learn about fashion and its influence throughout our lives.

I’m sure you’ve heard the wisdom: “A suit doesn’t make a man, but it says a lot about him…” if we analyse these words well, we will really understand the importance of this quote. Whenever you are meeting someone for the first time, your first impression on the clothes which that person is wearing.

Today I will introduce to you one of the most famous brands that is known for its elegant suits and shirts, but I had the desire to step out of the world of classic elegance and present one everyday elegant casual fashion outfit.

Welcome to Angelo Galasso world, the brand behind one fashion genius who managed to combine this timeless Italian classic style with innovative design to get this unusual fashion fusion.

The Angelo Galasso brand was founded in 2009 and over time has become synonymous with luxury of clothing and fashion accessories that offer unsurpassed timeless Italian elegance. This brand nurtures the traditional Italian style and combines it with innovative design by creating exclusive and unique clothes that are tailored to people with refined taste. Mr. Galasso considers his brand to be an evolution in the fashion tradition, which it really is!

At first sight, this fashion outfit looks ordinary, a casual fashion outfit, we have the jeans, a T-shirt and sneakers, iconic parts of an ordinary everyday casual combination with which you can wear for non formal business meeting or just to enjoy a beautiful day in your leisure time.

What is the secret of the Angelo Galasso brand? This Italian-British brand preserves all the values of traditional Italian fashion while respecting the elements of the legendary Italian style and cuts with an additional component of British elegance and sophistication.

There is no term “compromise” in Angelo Galasso’s fashion dictionary, because from the creative vision, the choice of materials, production and the final product, everything is at a high level because the refined taste of this fashion genius. In addition to amazing Italian cuts, this brand is also known for its caring attention to details.

In my outfit today, you have the opportunity to see jeans, the model follows the body line and they are casual, but they also have exotic fashion details such as real python leather details on the pockets.

Also, the design and the quality of fashion accessories on the jeans are exceptional, and at first sight, you can notice a significant difference between Angelo Galasso pair of jeans from other brands of jeans on the market.

The next fashion detail that has caught my full attention are these elegant navy sneakers made of a material that is unusual for men – velvet. This luxurious blue velvet sneakers with the embroidered signature AG Araldica Logo in gold on the outer left side. This sneakers are unique and casual wardrobe statement piece.

The quality of materials and their processing is at a high level with this famous brand. Angelo Galasso takes great care of his master pieces of art and carefully selects the materials, as well as their special production process.

For the end, I left the story of this taupe T-shirt, which is made of a special silk thread that allows the skin to breathe, and there is no fear that you will have those unpleasant stains from sweating. The T-shirt is extremely comfortable and the colour is quite easy for combing because this shade of taupe colour easily matches with other colours.

Of course, in addition to its quality composition silk and cotton, the T-shirt also has unusual details such as buttons with black discrete crystals, which gives it a special elegant note. As I said at the very beginning of this post, this just looks like an ordinary everyday casual outfit, but it is really unique and original because of all wonderful luxury details.

Berlin Street Style with Ron Dorff

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? I sincerely hope that you are doing well and that you are ready for another interesting fashion story that I bring to you from the streets of Berlin. I believe that all of you who have been enjoying my fashion stories and travelogues for a long time know how much I appreciate and respect novelties in the world of fashion and tourism.

Berlin is known as one of the biggest fashion capitals of street fashion. Street fashion is specific and there are different styles of street fashion and that is why many say that street fashion is a fashionable game of art. Street fashion in itself is restrictive, but some of the basic characteristics are casualness and “freedom” of cuts and designs.

Whoever followed my Instagram stories from East Berlin shopping district last week, I’m sure you remembered the Ron Dorff brand, about which I will tell you a little more in today’s post.

Ron Dorff
is a unique brand founded by fashion duo Jerome Touron, originally from France, and Klaus Lindorff, originally from Sweden. The name of the Ron Dorff brand itself was obtained by a simple combination of the founder’s surname.

What is the secret of the success of this French-Swedish brand? By simply harmonizing Swedish functionality with French style, Ron Dorff offers completely new dimensions of sportswear, where three things are highly valued: simplicity, functionality and timeless.

A brand that is available to everyone, with a casual sports style, Ron Dorff offers perfect fashion pieces of athletic heritage that fit perfectly, whether worn in the gym, at home or on the street.

From season to season, Ron Dorff proves that his motto is also the philosophy: “DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD” either in the gym or in life in general.

By creating simple, fashion bases as a starting point, Ron Dorff tries to reject all well-known labels that can indicate unnecessary ostentation in the fashion sense.

The interesting thing about this brand is that all the garments and fashion accessories are discrete signed with a pair of metal black-lacquered eyelets that represent the symbols of the two letters “O” which are also in the name of the brand itself. Because of these details, this brand has become recognizable in the fashion world.

The basic vision of this brand is to create simple basic fashion pieces that you can fit easily with all fashion trends. Ron Dorff is a brand that pays attention to every detail. Special attention is paid to the choice of materials and designs. This brand performs almost 90% of its production in Sweden, France and Portugal.

Their motto: “DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD” is definitely a real business “guiding star” in every step of the work of this brand, from the creative idea, design, to the final production of each piece.

In addition to clothing and fashion accessories for men and women, this brand has expanded its simplicity and functionality beyond fashion boundaries with the launch of the DISCIPLINE SKIN line for body care for him and her. This special line was made in cooperation with the most prestigious Swedish skin care brand FACE Stockholm, where the goal is to achieve good results with simplicity and purity.

The list of ingredients is short, without parabens and mineral oils, enriched with active herbs harvested north of the Arctic Circle and all products are 100% produced in Sweden.

In addition to its five flagship stores in Paris, London and Berlin, the Ron Dorff brand’s complete collection is also sold through the official online store: rondorff.com, where online shopping is available for 80 countries around the world.

Of course, part of each collection is also available in some of the best department stores around the world, such as Galeries Lafaiette (Paris), de Bienkorf (Amsterdam), Lodenfrey (Munich), Harvey Nichols (Hong Kong), Le Pasha (St Barth) and The Balancing (Shanghai).

I have to admit that it was hard for me to decide on the right outfit because the new collection of the Ron Dorff brand is really fantastic!

Upon entering the store, I noticed a couple of capital fashion pieces such as classic sweaters and roll neck sweaters, it was just a matter of finding the ideal color for my skin tone. Which I must admit sometimes is quite hard! 🙂

Today I will present you the first Ron Dorff outfit that I decided on in less than 5 minutes spent in the store. I believe that everyone who reads my blog and follows me on social media, knows about my excessive love for navy blue and the even greater “obsession” that I have raised for roll neck sweaters for years.

The first fashion piece I chose was this classic navy roll neck sweater with white stripes. This sweater got me at first sight because of the perfect shade of dark blue – navy blue combined with white stripes is the perfect fashion detail that you can fit in with all seasonal winter colors.

This was followed by a real fashion battle to choose the ideal pants. Since Raphael, the guy who works for Ron Dorff, was incredibly helpful, he had a big impact on changing my original fashion ideas. The vision of the brand itself is to merge the incompatible things, so it was this time as well.

Can you imagine a fashion combination of a perfectly classic wool roll neck sweater and pants that are in the form of an elegant tracksuit with lacing? At a very first sight, my vision was different, but I realized that I was wrong and I adopted some new fashion tips. Maybe I am not fashion icon, but I always try to improve myself as much as I can! 🙂

Since we found interesting pieces of clothing: a perfect navy roll neck sweater and an interesting tracksuit with a two-row white-green stripe, the only and logical choice for this outfit were perfect and simple white sneakers.

I admit that it was an interesting experience to see myself in such an unusual fashion story where elegance is combined with “dirty” street style.

In the new autumn / winter 2020 collection, Ron Dorff found inspiration in the unique color palette of Scandinavia. The colors in the new collection signify what it looks like 24 hours in a Nordic day.

Everything begins at clear dawn with a collection of colors from the “Arctic Dawn” palette, followed at dusk with a palette from the “Arctic Dusk” collection and ends in the darkest tones of the night with colors from special palettes of the “After Dark” collection.

The new collection is dominated by pastel colors and magnificently evokes the mild colors that are common for Arctic dawns. You can also feel a certain northern freshness and of course the colors that are the symbols of Sweden are also present, such as: soft yellow, ice blue mixed with gentle earth khaki tones.

My today’s outfit is inspired by the famous Arctic Nordic Lights. In this color palette, there is a dark blue night color and green, which means the colors of nature and the forest, which, along with white details, evokes the colors of the Nordic winter and sunset.

You must be wondering why the designers decided to combine navy blue, green and white in one place? In Sweden and generally in Scandinavia region, there are natural phenomena where bright green and blue shades “touch” with a palette of purple colors, and these are natural colors that are known in Scandinavia as northern lights – Aurora Borealis.

Of course, this sporty-elegant combination was completed by my new friend Torrino, a new backpack model from the famous German brand Picard, which has been supporting my work for years. The German quality and design is proven by their numerous leather backpacks that have traveled the world with me and are still ready for new new adventures!

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten. Since I made these photos outdoors and I sticked to the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear masks, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

The Berlin Fashion Diary: A Definition of an Urban Bally Classic

My dear travellers and fashionistas, how are you today? I hope you doing well and that this month has started in a good mood for you. When I was younger, I didn’t like September so much because we all know that school starts. On the other hand, I still love the beginning of September because then I celebrate my birthday.

On this day, around half past nine in the evening, one Marko was born. Thus begins my story that turns less than thirty years old today. Today I got up with a pain in my back and said to myself: “Well, Marko, good luck to us! We are getting old!”

Whether we want to admit it or not, we are all like little children when we celebrate a birthday. We look forward to gifts, whether they are small things or something more valuable, someone’s attention is always appreciated. Today, it is most difficult to get the most expensive gift from people – dedication and attention.

While on the one hand I think about aging, there are gifts to rejuvenate me and take me back to my childhood for a moment. It is a great pleasure for me when people in my environment remember my birthday, especially when these people do not have social networks that remind them of other people’s important dates, which means that you are important to someone and that is the best gift you can get from life.

Yesterday, I decided to make the photos of the gifts I got from fashion house Bally. I’m sure you’ve heard of this famous fashion brand that comes from Switzerland, and we all know that the Switzerland is more than a country of elegant and incredible clocks and interesting cuisine, but I would also add that they are quite fashion-friendly. In addition to exceptional precision, comfort and elegance, this incredible Swiss brand is adorned with the epithet – urban elegance.

The Bally brand was founded by Karl Franz Bally and his brother Fritz Bally in the basement of their family home in the town of Schonenverd, Switzerland. Their original products were elastic bands. During a business trip to Paris in 1849, Carl Franz wanted to buy his wife lace-up boots. Unfortunately, he was unable to remember the size his wife was wearing, he decided to buy that model of boots in all available sizes, knowing that one pair would surely be the right one. This is what I call the love!

During a visit to one Paris factory where boots were made, he noticed that each shoe had buttons with elastic bands similar to those produced by his family in Switzerland. Carl Franz got the idea to create something new, so he decided to expand his business to the production of footwear.

Together with his brother Fritz, Carl Franz hired designers to help them, and so they started hand-making shoes in the basement of his house.

The Bally company was founded in the basement of one family house in 1851, and only three years later the first factory was built, which was located in the center of the town. Unfortunately, in 1854, Karl’s brother Fritz Bally retired and left this job.

By the 1870s, the Bally brand was already recognized as a leader in the footwear industry. The company name changed to CF Bally and then to CF Bally & Sons when Karl handed over the business to his sons in 1892 and passed away a few years later. The fact is that Karl passed on his tireless creative and visionary pioneering spirit to his sons. Bally as a brand has grown and thrived by opening its stores in Geneva, Buenos Aires, Paris and London.

In the 1980s, Bally was also one of the first European luxury goods brands to open in post-reforms and opening borders to China. The brand has also expanded its range to include clothing, bags and leather goods for men and women. In the 1990s, Bally became a global brand, opening its stores in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Lebanon and Turkey.

Trousers: BALLY

I was inspired by this story and I am very pleased to have received gifts from this exceptional brand from Switzerland for my birthday. I hope that we will celebrate beautiful moments together for many years to come, and I hope that the situation will significantly improve after this pandemic caused by the COVID-19 situation.

How did you like my today’s birthday combination? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! Something new, something old and a unique balance is created. See you in a couple of days with a new story from Germany! Together we will discover the beauties of Magdeburg, the capital of the Saxony – Anhalt German state.

Fashion Diary: Red color is perfect for all seasons!

Dear fashionistas, welcome to my new post. A few days ago, we enjoyed the natural beauties of Divcibare, but now it’s time for me to return to the streets of urban city. Today it’s time for a new post from a special fashion series of posts called “Fashion Diary”.

A couple of weeks ago, you had the opportunity to see one classic color palette that will be worn this summer and learn a couple of useful tips on how to maintain your cotton clothes in the best possible way. If by any chance you did not manage to read my previous post from this series of posts or you want to learn tricks for maintaining a cotton wardrobe, do so by clicking on this link.

Regardless of this current health situation in whole world, our Belgrade has not lost its shine. People slowly but surely decide to take occasional walks through the streets of the capital and enjoy the nice weather. When foreigners ask me the famous question: “Why do you love Belgrade?” my answer is pretty simple – because it has a soul!

We may not be developed like some other famous European metropolises, we may not have a high standard of living, but the art of managing the life, the way we look at life and cordiality sets us apart from others! We, Serbs, are truly a united people, and through the interviews I conducted for my column on the blog “My Side of the World”, most of my interlocutors, and even some foreign statesmen, stated that Serbs are definitely a unique and unrepeatable people!

In the previous fashion story, you saw how a neutral palette of pastel colors like beige and shades of brown with white match perfectly, while today you will see how that same white color blends in with the bright coral-red color.

What do we know about red color? Have we ever wondered how the phenomenon lies behind this color? Red is a color that can represent two completely different extremes. It can be a symbol of passionate love, seduction, adventure on the one hand and violence, danger, on the other hand. Our prehistoric people precisely believed that the color red represents fire and blood – the energy of one side and the primordial life forces on the other side. Everything that is associated with this color today comes from powerful associations in the past of our ancestors.

Red is also a magical and religious color. The ancient Greeks symbolized superhuman heroism and Christian crucifixion with red color. The color red was almost uniformly rare and expensive as purple in ancient times – which may explain its magic and power.

Did you know that red is one of the two favorite colors of almost all people in the world. Red is the most common color used on flags in the world. An interesting fact is that almost 80% of all flags include red color. Red is an international color that is a symbol of stopping.

The famous “Red Quarters” in the world that sell sexual pleasure and pornography in every European culture are symbolized by the color red color, which means that we are returning to passion. The history of human language reveals that red was the first color to appear after black and white. All languages have words for black and white. If there is a third shade believe me it is red!

In a previous blog post, I listed some of the colors that will be trending this summer and among them was coral red and bright red (which my mom would say “young red color”). I decided to “respect” the fashion laws in my own way.

You had the opportunity to see fashion details from this post, such as backpacks and sneakers, in some of the previous posts, I just tried to keep them nice and here we are again on the streets of Belgrade. The pieces of clothing are new and I hope to make some more interesting combinations with them this summer.

The most ordinary red T-shirt will always find some perfect classic pants or jeans and make us a “fashion icon”. White pants are ideal for summer, but only if you carefully choose where to sit because not all surfaces are best friends with snow white color!

Loro Piana Fashion Diary: An interesting outfit that you can wear this summer

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to my new post. At the very beginning of the post, I would like to thank you for the suggestions you would like to see as a guest in the new section on the blog “My side of the world”.

I managed to contact a large number of celebrities and to our great satisfaction this summer we will enjoy traveling with our dear people from public life. Don’t worry, there will be people from various spheres, from people from cultural and public life to politicians. Believe me it will be very interesting summer on Mr.M blog!

Today I decided to share with you a fashion post with one fashion outfit that can serve as inspiration for these summer days. I’m sure most of us are shocked by these weather changes.

The previous days are proof that summer has officially come to Europe and, of course, the high temperatures that are characteristic of this period. I believe that not all of us want to talk about fashion, but we must do our best to take care of each other and hope that the pandemic will come to an end soon.

The Coronavirus has spread all over the world and there is no country in Europe that has not seen a re-emergence of COVID 19 patients during the month of June. I would appeal to everyone to adhere to health measures and to wear masks indoors (shopping malls, shops, bakeries, restaurants) and transportation.

During this painting, I tried to take all the pictures outdoors with social distance. If you think that it will not help you at all, then at least think of your loved ones, I am sure that each of you in your household has people who are susceptible to the consequences that this virus can cause, and these are people over 65, people with weakened immunity. and health problems and children. Thank you for taking care of your health!

What are your “fashion” associations for the summer? As always, I will be honest with you, so I will say: Good iron, cotton, viscose and linen… First of all, the most important thing is that each of us feels comfortable in his clothing combination, because the summer heat can sometimes be unbearable. During the summer, each of us has problems with sweating to a greater or lesser extent. Because of that, the most important thing is to choose the right materials that would allow the skin to breathe!

As I said at the beginning of the previous paragraph, materials like cotton, viscose and linen are the “fashion symbols” of summer, but not every material is the same. When we talk about cotton, it is the material when the most important is the final way of processing or whether, in addition to cotton, some other material will be found in the composition of a clothing product.

Cotton is a material that is easily crumpled and I am sure that each of us had situations in life when he spent half an hour (if not more) ironing cotton things, you did not even leave your home, and the garment was crumpled…

I have one little trick to use for cotton shirts and I will sadly reveal it to you. I believe that you used to wash the curtains in your life and that you noticed that when you put the starch on, the curtains fall easily and do not crease! It is the same with cotton shirts (I’ve already tried with the linen-cotton trousers, but it all depends on the thickness of the material), once or a maximum of twice during the season, add starch and your long-lasting memory basket during washing and it will be less crumpled.

Of course, ironing is also a very important thing, when you iron cotton items, adjust the temperature of the iron to lower temperatures, and in that way you will choose creasing during ironing and you will not damage the material. You’re welcome! 🙂

What colors are in trend this summer? In addition to the standard pioneers in the fashion industry such as white, beige, nude, navy blue and red, there are also some colors that have performed color variations with the addition of new ones. The colors that are also current this summer season are: coral pink (a mixture of bright red and bright pink, a very interesting combination), saffron (a combination of orange and yellow), dark onion green (chive), turquoise green and for the end a light blue color, but that shade of faded jeans color.

I decided that my post today would be in standard beige – nude – white. This clothing combination represents everyday casual sporty elegance for men.

The story behind this outfit?

You had the opportunity to see the fashion details from this post, such as glasses and sneakers, last summer, they were just nicely maintained and here we are again on the streets of Belgrade. The pieces of clothing are new and I hope to make some more interesting combinations during this period. A white shirt will always find some perfect classic pants or jeans that can be elegantly tucked in and make us a “fashion icon”. The cut of the pants and that “baggy” moment is a facilitating fashion detail that will make several summer walks easier along the way.

Belgrade Diaries: Sometimes good Things take Time…

My dear fashionistas and travellers, how are you today? I am sitting in this quarantine and thinking something about how the life was nice and easy at once, but Corona came and spoiled all the plans which we had…

But what about this “business” love of the Corona era? The main question is: “Do you still have your job?”. I am sure you have heard the various answers to this famous question, and I believe that the Corona has deeply penetrated and infected all sectors, but we have to admit that the service industry has suffered the most. The restaurants and cafes are closed, who managed to make a deal with the food delivering companies, succeeded and that’s it! The hotels are empty, the planes are grounded and the question is when they will fly again.

Of course, after returning to normal flight schedule there will again be problems because of the low occupancy of the aircraft as the recommendations of health organizations must be followed. Planes will fly at 20 to 30 percent occupancy, ticket prices will logically be drastically more expensive than before. The main question is: How long will all this really take?

Are you used to this “forced” vacation or to work from home, where you don’t even know when it’s day and night. The Corona is leaving chaos behind, many thousands of lives have been extinguished, the “river of people” has lost their jobs, and “Niagara Falls” will just collapse into Labor Department Offices around the world… And then we wonder if there is so much famine in the world that it is the guy in Wuhan had to eat that bat? And we were persuaded that people in China just eat dogs… A bit of black humor was out of the ordinary at the time of the Corona…

Otherwise, how do you “kill” time in isolation? Do you build tolet paper towers? Record some clips for Tik Tok? Do you get to know your family little better? Some studies say that during these emergencies, the highest rate of divorce and a large number of confirmed pregnancies. It would be a fine distinction between love and hate…

I stopped watching television, no one knows exactly how long this situation will last, tragedies on all sides around the world, so I decided to do some interesting things and devote myself to some of my hobbies that I neglected because of my daily work and travel.

Will our habits change after COVID – 19? Honestly, I do not know. I think it will affect our consciousness to change to some extent. Still guided by the famous quote: “The wolf changes his coat, but not his nature“, I don’t think we will be able “to keep” Anne Frank’s diary for long time, and will soon embrace freedom when the opportunity arises. Perhaps one thing will change though, at least for a short while, we will not take liberty for granted.

It may be best to put on the most beautiful fashion accessory these days, which costs nothing but is worth a lot – our smile and hope for the best. Fashion is art about playing with fashion details, each of us has the right to choose his own way of dressing and to find his place under the hot fashion sun.

As you know I always try to combine some outfits that I have for quite some time with some new details and so I decided to take this linen jacket out today again and welcome some nice days in my favourite sneakers that may be difficult to maintain but are but dear to the heart. As in life, man loves some things that are harder and more unusual, these are some of the little joys of life.

Mr.M Fashion Guide: How to wear Iconic Leather Coat?

My dear fashionistas and travellers, how are you today? I think this winter has been the mildest for us so far, there was no snowfall that you have to admire. This year, we were alarmed by the Corona virus, which put us all in danger, I sincerely hope that the number of patients will be reduced and that a vaccine and adequate drugs will be found that will reduce the fatal outcome.

As I prepare for the Belgrade Tourism Fair, this year I will be the Destination Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt, which is also the partner country of this year’s 42nd Belgrade Tourism Fair. If you are passing by, drop by the booth of the Arab Republic of Egypt to visit me and to talk about Egypt from February 20 to 23, and I would especially like to invite all those who are able to attend a special conference – a roundtable where Serbian journalists will show their sightings of Egypt. The roundtable will be held on February 22 starting at 12 am in Hall 4 (large conference room). I sincerely hope to see you soon! Drop by and say hello! 🙂

Today I am sharing with you an interesting fashion outfit post where you will have the opportunity to see the way I have combined one of the most fashionable pieces in the world right now – a leather coat. When you mention leather clothing, men first come to mind with some good leather jackets, of different lengths and models, but they are less common with leather coats, because sometimes they are not practical. Hand-to-heart, a leather coat requires a little more care and is not a practical piece of clothing if you have a lot of business to do during the day.

Fortunately, I took a day off before the hustle and bustle of meetings about organizing the Belgrade Tourism Fair to take pictures and write down some of my impressions of this outfit. In collaboration with my longtime fashion blog friend – Burberry, today I am able to show you one “eternal” piece from their new Spring-Summer 2020 collection. When I was picking outfits from the new collection, I tried to be unusual and authentic. Having been cooperating for over three years, I was able to feel the beauty of their famous gabardine, but this year I opted for a slightly different material – leather.

Because of my height, I have become a big fan of over-the-knee coats because I think the longer coats would “eat” me and I would look visually much lower. When you are wearing a leather garment you have to carefully consider the fact that you have to keep an eye on the weather forecast. The leather is very sensitive material and does not have good waterproof abilities, so it is important that you wear leather clothing in dry weather conditions, as some leather types may have water stains (most often in the case of velour type of leather).

Believe me, I learned this the hard way when I ruined my new velour leather trench at FIRST wearing because a terrible downpour hit me. Because the bright and light colour of the trench, dark rain stains remained on it. I wore it a couple of times so, after I painted it in navy colour, don’t ask better how it ended… I’m so sorry for that coat I still keep it in a special dust bag hanging in the closet, I’m just sorry to throw it away…

With this particular coat, the rain would not bother so much because it is a stronger calf box, this skin type is resistant, it is a little heavier, but it is of good quality. This coat is dark colour, so any traces of rain drops would not be easily seen on the surface. I stayed consistent with myself so I combined this “avant-garde” fashion piece with classic trousers and a turtle-neck collar sweater.

I have to admit that my only challenge was choosing the right shoes. First, I had some basic idea in my head that this coat should be combined with classic boots, but in the end my sneakers that I bought a few years ago in an outlet suddenly beat that first idea. I haven’t worn them for years, just tidied them up and placed them on my shoe shelf until they literally fell on my head today… I thought it wouldn’t be a bad thing for this fashion combination to get some casual note and make the combination not too serious.

I sincerely hope that I was able to bring out this iconic piece today. I may not be the Matrix, but it turned out nicely in the end, following my urban elegance style. See you in a couple of days with a new story, it might be interesting to do some cross-section of travel and make one short cross-section of the destinations I visited in 2019. I would love to hear your opinion and if you can give me some ideas.

There were some plans for new adventures in Asia earlier this year, but travel was delayed until the alarm because of Coronavirus disease, because tourism organizations did not want to put us bloggers at risk. I am try to organize some new journeys and I promise you will read some interesting stories on Mr.M blog, so I will do my best to organize something unusual and to please my dear readers with some interesting letters from some unusual parts of Africa and Europe.

OUTFIT

Leather Trench: Burberry

High-Top Sneakers: Saint Laurent

How did you like this outfit I wore to visit the streets of Belgrade? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! This outfit is made by something new, something old and a unique balance is a result.

Fashionable Scenes from Belgrade Life with Armani Exchange

My dear fashionistas, we are finally approaching the end of 2019. There are still a few hours left and the excitement is growing as we count down the last hours of this old year. I will remember this year as one of the most successful so far and I have made many memories to remember.

I just wish you all the best in 2020 and all your wishes come true. I sincerely hope that you can reach all your goals in the coming year and that 2020 will also fulfill all your expectations.

A lot of love, happiness and health this is the classic “package” of wishes that I wish everyone with heart, and the rest will come over time. If a person is healthy, happy and loved, everything else can be accomplished, it just takes some time.

A couple of days ago I decided to take pictures for a new fashion outfit post in collaboration with my friends from fashion houses Armani and Loro Piana. Today I am going to introduce to you one of the more affordable Armani fashion lines – Armani Exchange.

A | X Armani Exchange brand was launched in 1991 in the USA with the aim of selling fashion and lifestyle products. This fashion line has become known for provocative advertising campaigns.

Inspired by street fashion and the culture of street music, the Armani Exchange brand is recognized by consumers around the world as a significantly more affordable brand from Armani fashion family.

In order to accelerate the development of Giorgio Armani’s first fashion line, famous fashion maestro Giorgio Armani founded the joint venture Presidio Holdings in 2005 in partnership with Como Holdings, a company owned by Singaporean tycoon Ong Beng Seng. production and distribution of the A / X Armani Exchange fashion line in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Asia and the Pacific region.

Initially, the Italian company Armani owned 25% of Presidio Holdings shares, with the remaining 75% in the hands of Como Holdings. Designer Giorgio Armani gained an additional 25% stake in 2008. In 2014, it gained the remaining 50% by securing full ownership of the brand, which has 270 stores and over 3,000 employees worldwide.

The Armani Exchange brand has opened its doors in Berlin, so you can go to Mall of Berlin and step into the world of the most famous designer Giorgio Armani just to see how Mr. Armani makes his street wear brand Armani Exchange.

I was tasked with fitting this jacket from the latest Armani Exchange winter collection with my style that is known as a kind of urban classic.

When I received my fashion pack of iconic pieces that I had to combine, I knew that this jacket would surely find its way to my heart!

I decided to combine this urban street, sportive piece with classic trousers and turtleneck swater instead of jeans or tracksuit as many people perceive this brand to be the best way to bring out this fashion piece.

My first goal was just to get my photographer out on the river and take some interesting pictures for this fashion outfit. It wouldn’t be me if I not decide to add some detail in my favorite color, we all realized by now that it was red. This time it was a simple red scarf, which was made in a beautiful shade of red that certainly refreshed this combination. Also there were some interesting red details which you can find on my backpack.

Blue colour has always been a symbol of covert elegance and has always been the best replacement for the famous black which is synonymous with eternal elegance. The color navy (dark blue) is the new black!

This post will also officially be my last blog post in 2019 and you will soon see little changes to the blog that you will like! I have prepared something new for you and the blog will change its concept and design, but the content will remain original and consistent with my style that started this whole story almost five years ago…

As time goes by, who would say, but here is my blog celebrating its fifth birthday . Just a little while so we’re ready for school!

My dear fashionistas, we have come to the end of this post. This post would not have been possible without my friends from the Armani Exchange fashion brand, as well as the pioneer of the eternal Italian classic Loro Piana.

Turtleneck Sweater: Loro Piana

Last Letter from Lapland: Explore Rovaniemi with Makia

My dear travelers, I hope you are doing well. We may not all present at the moment right now because the holiday season is open, but the blogger’s work doesn’t know anything about vacation! Just another month is going to end, and another adventure on the Mr.M blog is also finishing, but a lot of interesting stories await you in August, do not worry.

It may be a little strange, but as a person gets older and becomes an “adult” personality goes through a few stages. I am currently in the phase of “being my own boss and paying my bills”. Tomorrow is the 1st of August and that means only one thing in the Western world, it’s time for payment and on another hand bills must be paid. It’s that little bit of a grown-up thing when you are young, you don’t have a sense of it because your parents are doing it for you, and your job is to enjoy in the life and to find your way. After is quite different!

Then you grow up, and you enter the world of adults where you see that everything is totally different. My first book on university with which I had contact began with a famous sentence, which was not very clear to me at first sight: “There is no free lunch!”. After you finish your studies, you start working and breaking into life every day repeating that sentence and every time it gets a different meaning, but whatever you turn it is not free! 🙂

Of course we all have to grow up at some point of time, but it would be best for all of us to save that little kid that sits somewhere in our soul and reminds us of some nice little things which are really important lessions in life. Sometimes that little kid can teach us more than some school or university can ever do.

Today I am thinking and trying to summarize these 27 years, what has changed in my life… I realized that as I opened my blog and started to write you here about my troubles and beautiful things in life, my personality has changed drastically. The blog is really a great thing, it came to me as a kind of psycho therapy. I managed to conquer my fears, to conquer myself! Sometimes it is very important to prove to yourself how strong you are and believe me, results will surprise you!

Before I start with my last post from this Lapland edition of posts, I would like to say huge thank you to Visit Rovaniemi and Finnair for this incredible opportunity to be one of the Rovaniemi Summer Ambassadors for 2019.

Today I will write you about my fashion adventure and how I explored Rovaniemi with a little help of my friends from fashion house Makia. Maybe you remember my adventure from Helsinki and one interesting yellow jacket – LINK. Yeah, that jacket was from the special collection Makia x MOOMIN, which was a collaboration between Makia, the most famous Finnish luxury street wear and MOOMIN. For the final part of their collaboration with the Moomins, Makia designers team got inspired by the easily relatable and curious character of Moominpappa.

Now it comes the time to present you a new Fall – Winter collection of Makia Clothing on my blog. I am sure that the first thought on your mind was: “What he is talking about, it’s still summer!”. Maybe for you is summer, but fashion brands need always to be prepared for a new fashion season.

When I had started my journey from Berlin to the heart of Lapland, in Berlin was around 35,36 degrees and I came to Rovaniemi with short sleeves T-Shirt. I will just tell you that in Rovaniemi was around 12 to 14 degrees, so it was like twenty degrees difference. For all humans, you know that would be a huge temperature shock for your body.

But, my friends from Makia have already known all those facts, so they sent me one box with all must have things to “survive” Lapland. At the first moment I just wanted to hug them all, because they really thought about everything, about every detail and they knew my favorite colours, so it was just a perfect match!

After I finish with my schedule it was time to show gratitude to my friends from Makia, so my photographer and I made a very last walking tour around the Rovaniemi and we made these photos.

Rovaniemi is a very interesting city, which can fulfill all your wishes and Visit Rovaniemi team did absolutely everything to show me all the beauties of this lovely city. This trip really was one interesting mix of everything: educational, funny and of course I met the Santa!

Makia clothes helped me a lot, so it was nice to explore Rovaniemi with their help. This outfit is ideal for casual city walk, as you saw in one of my previous posts from Lapland.

What I love about Makia? Makia is a brand which makes simple and functional design clothes that focuses on the quality materials which is the most important thing.

What I also love about Makia? Their way of communication with the influencers. For example, I received my package which was prepared on time, because my visit to Lapland was shorter than previous one in Helsinki. They made for me few outfits, they just asked me to confirm my sizes and they with their stylists made quite interesting choice of outfits for me.

After I’ve got my package, I saw on their online store one interesting beanie! It was simple, but the colour was just amazing, so I asked them is it possible to send that beanie, because I love red colour. The next day I’ve got a call from reception of hotel in Rovaniemi and they informed me that some new package is arrived for me, if I am free thay would like to bring it for me. Couple minutes ago I saw one big box, bigger than previous one…

My first thought was, this is too big for one small beanie! I opened the box and I was surprised because there was a totally new outfit which completely match with the beanie!

That was much more than I expected so I got 4 outfits instead of 3 and I just wanted one small, simple red beanie…

Life is interesting when you don’t have some high expectations. I am happy because I have my job which I really love from the bottom of my heart and I have family and friends who are always there in every single moment ready to help me and support every crazy idea of mine…

Last couple of days, I’ve got a lot emails with some questions, so I will use this post to give you an answer on the most interesting question.

“Dear Marko, I follow you for 3 years now and this is the first time that I have something to ask you. Is this blogging thing something what you really like or it is just because of money? If you feel that some part of question is not right, you do not need to respond me. I will respect your decision.”Kelly from UK (She gave me the permission to share her question here on my blog and to publish her first name).

Dear Kelly, I decided to follow my dreams, but I worked long years to make my dream come true. I always wanted to become writer, but as you know life has some other plans for us. This bloggers, influencers thing now is in the spotlight because of money. This is a job like any others, there is no difference. If you do not make some effort, do not expect something in return. First of all, I love my blogging job because it helped me to change myself to become a better version of me. I don’t want to lie anybody, this job is good, you have a lot of perks, freebies which sometimes you can’t pay if you work some regular job with some average European salary. People are curious to know, what exactly are we doing and getting so much money? I know that I work a lot, and this can be seen by the content I regularly share with all of you on my blog and social networks. Once again I love my job, even when I am not making any money, I am capable to work some side jobs to help myself if I need some money. I also love this because because it always give me a great feeling of freedom and relaxation when I have opportunity to write some new story, because I am the writer and editor at the same time! This is my little kingdom where I am always free to be myself and that is a real luxury in nowdays world.
