Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the first July post on the Mr.M blog! We are starting the summer season with a new fashion story where I will do my best to give you inspiration for an elegant summer outfit. A lot of you have asked me in the last few days if I have a fashion stylist, since you met some of my friends on Instagram from Vogue Germany, I can tell you that I style all fashion outfits from the very beginning of my blogging career, very rarely in consultation with my friends out the fashion world.
Believe me, people who are not into fashion are sometimes the best style judges because they are neutral and can really see if something really suits you or not. On the other hand, fashion experts rely a lot on the facts whether it is strictly within the current trends and sometimes ignore the fact whether something is good for a person or not.
One common example, a friend who doesn’t follow fashion so often rated this outfit with a clean ten because it looks on me nicely and really fits me, while my friend who works at Vogue said: “This is so 2015, please behave yourself!”. I respect the opinions of both sides and I like to hear constructive criticism that helps me work on myself, but in most “fashion” situations I believe in myself. Whether it was a fashion hit or a pure failure, I always take all the credit!
I imagined today’s outfit to be a kind of summer inspiration for what to wear during the summer, not too elegant, and at the same time to be effective and casual.
For how many years I have been running the Mr.M blog, I think you have noticed that brown shades and pastel colors are common on my blog and that I wear them all year round regardless of the “fashion” season.
You had a chance to see the jacket in one of the previous posts. I have to admit that it has become one of my favorite summer outwear pieces because it is extremely practical and because of the dark brown color it is wearable because I don’t have to think about stains that can be more easily noticed on lighter colors.
Brunello Cucinelli is synonymous with Italian elegance, prestige and luxury that you can feel by touch. When you touch their pieces, it’s really love at first sight. I am a big fan of Safari Field jackets with numerous pockets made of suede leather because they are iconic and timeless pieces that never go out of fashion. Brunello Cucinelli has been making this model for years with small modifications and color changes, but suede leather is always the main material.
This model of jacket is classic and many fashion brands make it in different materials, but from my personal experience I learned that the best models are made of linen,wool and suede leather.
SVEVO Parma silk T-shirt that has definitely become my favorite when it comes to summer knitwear pieces and I think my friends have started to think more about me because every time they meet me they ask me if it is the same silk T-shirt in which we saw you last time?! Apart from the fact that it has become an indispensable part of my everyday outfits, I also wanted to prove its quality, and besides that, it is very easy to maintain, if we only take into how sensitive silk as material is.
Do I need to repeat the specificity of the SVEVO Parma brand? Let me repeat once again, just to make sure that we have learned something interesting and useful about this Italian brand. During the weaving phase, SVEVO brand makes very small holes on the back of each T-shirt, the number of holes depend on the size, starting with 1 hole for size 46. Authentic trademark, which despite use and loss of all labels guarantees that the piece you wear is original and made by the SVEVO Parma brand.
The T-shirt is made of the finest silk. The beautiful beige color is just an addition because it easily fits with any color, as you have had the opportunity to see in previous posts.
For today’s outfit, I decided to change the bracelet on my Memorigin Tourbillon “Time Machine” and show you what this watch looks like in a brown version.
Memorigin is a Hong Kong watch brand founded in 2011 by Mr. William Schum. The brand specializes in tourbillon watches, a mechanism that is often associated with luxury Swiss watch brands. This mechanism is produced in only a few factories around the world. The prices of watches with this mechanism range from dizzying numbers with 5 or 6 zeros, depending on the watch brand.
The founder of the Memorigin brand explored a possibility to produce a quality middle-class tourbillon, which will sell directly to the growing Chinese watch market and thus reach worldwide market.
Tourbillon watches made by the Memorigin brand are unique because they combine Chinese and Western design elements. At the moment of founding Memorigin, Mr. Schum stated that he wanted to create watches that possessed “Swiss precision with Chinese characteristics and oriental spirit.”
Certain watch models from limited special art collections are often designed by the Memorigin team in collaboration with well-known Hong Kong watch collectors. Memorigin has always shown interest in becoming a custom-made watch brand, not a mass-produced one.
The model that complemented my outfit today is the Memorigin watch from the special collection “Time Machine Series“. This model is adorned with a timeless gold-plated rose steel case with a white dial without much detail, nurturing the aesthetics of simplicity and elegance. A luxurious crocodile bracelet emphasizes the elegance of this unusual watch. This watch is an interesting masterpiece, made for all lovers of true beauty and aesthetics that support the “laws of elegance”.
The designer of this exceptional collection of watches is Mark Lui, a watchmaker who believes that precision in time is the only gift that only people who are active in creating their own time can understand. Memorigin brand has really tried to bring every detail to perfection, such as work on smaller dials, the color of the crown, which has a specific design so that people with different tastes understand the value of time in their own unique way. The guiding idea for the creator of this amazing collection was one simple sentence: “Only time has the same value for different people.”
Since the whole outfit was in a certain casual – elegant tone, I decided to wear my new Jacob Cohen sneakers made of pony hair. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way. Of course, the dark chocolate brown color goes great with my summer colors in the wardrobe. Jacob Cohen is an Italian brand that conquered the fashion scene in a short time and managed to reach a high position in the world of fashion and is known for producing famous jeans that have a recognizable detail on them – a “pony hair plate” with the brand logo.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this first special July post where we opened the summer season together on the Mr.M blog! How did you like my outfit today?
I really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!
I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a short walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage the crowds. Do not forget the fact that even if you have been vaccinated (both doses of the vaccine) you need to wear a mask for your own safety.
The summer vacation season has begun and many have found own tropical paradise, so I would ask you to respect local laws related to community COVID-19 health situation.
The process of vaccinating the population in Germany has begun and I believe that the situation will soon improve and that our lives will return to normal soon!
I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and please wear a mask.
If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!
With love from Berlin,
