Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Stylish Winter with Nello Santi…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to the last fashion story on the Mr.M blog in 2022. I must admit that it is a great honor and pleasure for me to have the opportunity to end the year with you and to write you my vision of the fashionable furry winter in style.

In the previous fashion story, we started the discussion about choosing the ideal fur coat model, as well as the type of fur, introducing the new Italian fur brand Nello Santi.

At the very beginning of today’s fashion story, I would like to refer to a very important topic that is of great importance for both sexes – proper skin care. When we are beautiful and young, we honestly have no need to think about additional care of the largest human organ that remembers everything – the skin.

The skin has three layers: epidermis (upper layer), dermis (middle) and subcutaneous fat (lower layer or hypodermis). Proper additional skin care is very important when a person enters the world of adults – the age of thirty and the first signs of aging appear. My mother tried to develop in me an awareness of proper skin maintenance and how to deal with fine wrinkles and skin imperfections in the right way. The first and most important step is to gather information and find a doctor who understands your wants and needs.

My choice is the SKINFLUENCER Anti Aging Center in Belgrade, a place where you will solve your current problems of the skin of the face and body, as well as those related to inexorable aging or the constitution. Besides clinic in Belgrade, you can find SKINFLUENCER anti aging centers in Paris, London and Dubai and experience luxury on your own skin!

SKINFLUENCER got its name from the commonly known word, SKIN, and another word for laser energy known to a narrow circle of experts – FLUENCE. I had the opportunity to feel the benefits of a revolutionary treatment for those who want to stay young without surgery. Morpheus 8 is a treatment with microneedles that introduces powerful energy of radio waves into the skin to rejuvenate the skin of the face, but also shape the figure by melting fat deposits and removing cellulite.

In addition to Morfeus 8, SKINFLUENCER center there are other methods by which you can realize your wishes and solve facial skin problems with 4D Photon laser rejuvenation, electromagnetic stimulation, as well as other rejuvenation methods (anti-aging) – botox, fillers and threads. Doctor Branka Krkljuš, who decided to share her many years of experience with us in the wonderful ambiance of the SKINFLUENCER center in Dedinje, you can feel the benefits of rejuvenation using the world’s anti-aging medicine with regular special promotions, so that a rejuvenated look is available to everyone.

The black cape that you have the opportunity to see in the previous fashion story is a true masterpiece of the Italian fur atelier Nello Santi. The coat in today’s post is also a true work of art from Nello Santi as well.

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

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

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

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

Nello Santi fur collections are enriched with new notes, colors and lines that fit well with contemporary styles, while never neglecting the elegant cut of his original designs. The coat in today’s post is made of the highest quality mink, it is a female because the fur is shiny and light.

Many people wonder what the difference is between mink fur coats that are made from male and female mink fur. Male fur is heavier, but it is stronger and more resistant, so these fur coats are easier to maintain, for example, if you keep the fur coat during the summer at home, it does not require any special care. The fur of the female mink is softer, shinier and significantly lighter, so those fur coats are aesthetically more beautiful and light in themselves, but they require certain care.

Fur coats that are made from female mink fur must be stored during the summer period at furriers who provide the service of storing fur coats in specialized refrigerators, and in this way you will maintain your fur coat and save it from unwanted guests – moths.

The mink cape you can see on me today is a beautiful cognac color with striped trim with an extra detail that I love – fringe. The combination of nature and craftsmanship, which the Santi family offers as a selfless gift to new generations today more than ever, in the face of the rise of mass production and the use of highly polluting synthetic fabrics, represents a practice of “green elegance” that must be protected and passed on.

Fur has a history as ancient as the world itself. It has always been a part of the natural cycles of human life and in addition to being an exclusive and unique product, it is ecologically sustainable at every stage of production and does not cause pollution of the natural environment.
Producing, buying and wearing a fur coat is a gesture of love for tradition and nature and, like any gesture of love, it is capable of bringing beauty and pleasure into our lives.

If you want to know more about Nello Santi fur brand and discover what the Santi family has prepared for the new winter season, visit their official website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

In addition to high-quality fur, I always like to wear pearls, which have always been a timeless fashion classic. My outfit today was enriched by a pearl necklace and earrings from the famous Macedonian brand Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928. In the previous fashion story, we enjoyed together the elegance of a three-row pearl necklace with filigree and an elegant figure of a lady, while today my neck is adorned with a more modest, but very elegant two-row pearl necklace necklace with filigree and baroque pearl.

The Filevi family is a family that has been producing Ohrid pearls since 1928, which is confirmed by historical facts and numerous institutions. The secret of making Ohrid pearls is still one of the most closely guarded secrets of this family, which combines pearls into creative pearl necklaces and bracelets, and has been passed down from generation to generation for the fourth generation.

When we talk about pearl, we always think of the pearl that is in the shell, but the Ohrid pearl is much more than that and has a more specific way of production. It is extremely important to note that there are only two families in Ohrid who know the secret of making the famous Ohrid pearl.

The Ohrid pearl is not found in the shell, but is made by taking the brightest (inner) part of the shell, processing it well and obtaining the desired shape – a grain of mother-of-pearl. Another process of grain processing is coating the already obtained mother-of-pearl grain with an emulsion obtained from the scales of the Ohrid fish – the scarecrow. Today, several new models of Ohrid pearl necklaces appeared, which accentuated certain events such as weddings, celebrations and visits, girlfriend proposals and many others.

The Filevi family offers a rich collection of unique handmade jewelry. A large selection of different colors of cultured natural pearls allows you to choose the ideal piece of jewelry for your sensibility. Each creation is characterized by an individual approach to conception and design. They are made in different lengths according to the customer’s wishes. Models are for people who want to be different, with a unique fashion style.

Today, my neck is adorned with a filigree pearl necklace, a locket containing a baroque pearl. Probably many of you are wondering what is filigree? Filigree is one of the most beautiful metalworking techniques. This technique has been used throughout the centuries to produce extremely high-quality and valuable jewelry as well as decorative items that we still admire today. In order to make a decorative item or jewelry using this technique, silver, gold, and less often copper wire is used to compose the motif. Threads of wire are bent and interlaced, tied together and thus a complex motif is formed that can be placed on a metal base or completely free. Circles, flowers, and geometric patterns were made from filigree wire. Small metal balls were sometimes placed on objects made in this way.

The making of Filevi 1928 jewelry is a real art and each handcrafted piece of Filevi jewelry has, above all, a special sentimental value.

When choosing shoes, I try to always choose comfortable and elegant shoes. The story of the GRAFFITI brand is based on the top quality and comfort of the shoes they offer, as well as the dedicated work of their team who have been there for many years and participate in the constant improvement of the rich and selected offer of quality Italian footwear.

After almost 30 years of successful business in Serbia, they are still recognizable for their excellent selection of Italian shoes of top quality and elegant design… In their stores in the most attractive locations in Belgrade, in addition to the Graffiti brand, you can also find several renowned brands such as: LAURA BELLARIVA, ROBERTO FESTA, JEANNOT, RAS and others.

I hope you enjoyed my last fashion story in 2022 today. See you in the new year in the same place, with some new interesting story. To all the readers of the Mr.M blog, I wish you a happy New Year and Christmas holidays!

Best regards,

Rose

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Fur and Pearls Are Forever!

Dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing well. I believe that today’s fashion story will be interesting for many women because I will share with you my favorite fashion pieces. The subject of my first fashion story on the Mr.M blog is the beauty of fur and pearls – symbols of style and immortality. Fur is a noble material that has always been worn by celebrities, members of royal families, while in Belgrade this status symbol was worn by great ladies.

In addition to fur, the necks of those elegant ladies were decorated with pearls, which have always been a timeless classic. My mother loved fur, and from her I inherited my love for this noble material, as well as for pearls, which I still wear with great pleasure.

After the published fashion story about the FURMARK certificate for the sustainability of fur in the fashion industry on the Mr.M blog, Marko and I received numerous questions regarding the selection of the appropriate quality of fur, as well as the selection of a fur coat model. Many ladies were in doubt, since buying a fur coat is a serious investment and therefore it is necessary to carefully choose the right model for yourself. There are furs of different quality on the market, from pieces to whole skins, natural and dyed fur.

Therefore, it is best for everyone to choose the fur that the lady thinks is the best and always ask the professionals, who can help you and answer all your doubts. Prices can vary and it is certain that with a higher price, you get better quality, which is of course the desire of all of us. A coat is a piece that is eternal, it can be passed on to generations to come.

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

The story of this brand begins in the chilly autumn of 1943, when the inhabitants of the Italian town of Grosseto were anxiously awaiting the coming winter.

The population was exhausted and battered by years of conflict and poverty, as well as their sad loss of offspring, misery and hunger.

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

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

The gentle and elegant lines of Nello Santi fur have always been inspired by the authentic landscapes of sunny Tuscany.

Fashion Diaries: Stylish Fall Look with MYTHERESA and Fratelli Rossetti

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for the first November fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! Today I have a well-known guest that you all love to see in fashion stories on the blog – dear Mrs. Mom. In cooperation with the shopping platform MYTHERESA and the Italian footwear brand Fratelli Rossetti, we are writing the first pages of our Fashion Diaries this FW22 season!

Fall is considered to be one of the most interesting periods when people can play with fashion. It’s a transitional period and the temperatures are quite comfortable to wear some favorite pieces that we love, but we can’t wear during the cold and snowy winter season.

A coat is one of the fashion items that each of us should have in our wardrobe. Eternal classics, elegance and simplicity are just some of the many epithets that adorn this iconic fashion piece which, if properly maintained and stored, can last for years.

In collaboration with the MYTHERESA online luxury shopping platform, today you have the opportunity to see a iconic Max Mara cashmere Jerry coat model that is made of 100% cashmere on my mom, while I decided on my new coat that you had the opportunity to see in my fashion adventures in Moldova – André Maurice.

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.

The next brand that I want to present to you and is in the offer of the MYTHERESA online shopping platform is a brand that I am sure there is no person in the world who does not know the value of this supreme classic – Gucci! If we exclude the movie “House of Gucci” that contributed to the massive worldwide euphoria and increased demand for the items of the Italian fashion house Gucci, this brand itself has a special historical value.

I don’t know if you knew, but currently all the world’s famous fashion houses have “revived” – re-editions in their new collections some of their famous iconic models that have gained incredible popularity in the world, and in this way the companies refresh some of their old models with some novelties and on that way people have the opportunity to buy a piece that they were not able to buy before. So the fashion house Gucci decided to bring back some of its famous models such as Jackie, Stirrup and Horsebit 1955 in its new collection.

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see the Horsebit Hobo model from the Gucci fashion house, which is made of the highest quality python leather and gold accessories. Dear Mrs. Mom couldn’t believe it when we opened the package because she didn’t expect to get this bag, because she thought she would get a Jackie leather bag and she was a little sad about that, but her smile and hours of looking at mirror with this bag were more than enough signs that surprise mission accomplished!

Of course, the piece that every stylish woman needs and that helps you “hide” from the world when you need a break – a sunglasses! Mom was expecting a bag and a coat, but while picking out pieces I saw this famous Panthère de Cartier model of sunglasses, I just couldn’t resist giving my mom a piece like that that can be passed down to generations to come! MYTHERESA has an incredible offer of the most iconic models from the Cartier Eyewear Collection.

We have come to our favorite topic – shoes! I believe that by now you have thoroughly familiarized yourself with the offer of the famous Italian brand of footwear and leather goods Fratelli Rossetti, and today I present to you the “crown” of their latest Fall-Winter 2022/23 men’s collection, the Brera model, which is made with special embroidery. These shoes are unisex and for men they are available in navy, while for women the same model can be found in navy, black and burgundy (officially on the website they are listed as leather color, but for me personally they are some color between burgundy and brown, since velvet is quite shiny, so you can never be sure of the right shade).

My mom in today’s post is wearing their classic double-buckle Brogue Beck model in a soft cognac color. This model is made of soft brushed leather with an optical illusion and two-tone effect and decorative studs. Besides the cognac color, Fratelli Rossetti made this model in olive and black.

Let’s determine what we learned and remember how the Brera model got its name? Brera is the “art district” of Milan, where in the 60s sculptors, painters and writers tried to leave their mark, with new languages ​​and new forms. Its liberal and open atmosphere inspired the creation of the “Brera”, the fringed moccasin, a style revolution just beginning to rediscover its love of life. Like an artistic composition, Brera combines different materials and colors. This special mix of materials and shapes makes the moccasin one of the most successful chapters in Fratelli Rossetti’s history.

During the creation of the new collection for the autumn-winter season, the design team of Fratelli Rossetti decided to go a step further and bring the Brera loafers model to perfection and complete it with unusual colorful hand embroidery. The main material of the outer part of the shoe is soft velvet and a special hand embroidery is done over it, while the inner part of the shoe, like every other Fratelli Rossetti shoe, is made of the highest quality leather. Since I realized in Moldova that my Brera is dark blue, I had to find matching elegant trousers and I managed to find them on the MYTHERESA platform, so these navy Dolce & Gabbana trousers completed my outfit today.

Furmark: The Fur is Back!

My dear fashionistas, today I have a special educational fashion story for you that will surely intrigue you and make you think about the news in the world of fur fashion. Fur, a natural material that has been loved and appreciated for centuries, as from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages. From material that was used only to provide warm coverage it has grown into a landmark of aristocracy and nobility. Prominent merchants, respectable people, and even some distinguished members of the royal families were great fans of fur.

It has been in the fashion spotlight for centuries, but for the last few years, we have been wondering, will the use of this precious material come to an end? Is the fur industry really an environmental problem?

The mink coat has always been a symbol of luxury and elegance. Some of you may remember the advertising campaigns of the fashion house “Blackglama” with the famous slogan – “How to become a legend“. During the 20th and 21st centuries, there is no famous person from the world of entertainment, such as divas like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Greys Kelly, Beth Davis, Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and even Anna Wintour who did not like to wear fur. Over the last decade different societies fought for animal rights and almost killed the fur industry.

Obviously, there are many pros and cons on this topic, but it at least deserves an open discussion, which never happened because all doors were suddenly closed for natural fur worldwide. Nowadays some things in the fashion world have changed and fur is back! Now we have new possibilities that have been provided by the International Fur Federation that should satisfy both sides, fur and animal friends. Fake fur cannot compare with natural fur’s beauty, quality and durability.

Mink Fur Coat: Nello Santi

The fur industry has been challenged in recent years over animal procurement and welfare practices. Long before the proposed law on work in the fur industry, the fur industry itself worked diligently to ensure that it adhered to the highest standards of animal welfare. Today’s consumers demand to know more about what they are buying. Transparency is an expectation in the food they eat to the clothes they wear. There is a growing demand for sustainability, healthier choices and the need for a clear understanding of the supply chain behind the products they buy. The global fur market, despite all the adversity, has grown 40% in the last 15 years.

In order to not only combat all the adversity, but also to change the perceptions of wearing fur, the International Fur Federation has developed a formal certification and traceability process, Furmark®. Fur is one of the most sustainable natural products in the world of fashion. The use of organic materials is a complete contrast and rejection of fast and plastic fashion, which are typically oil derivatives. Fur epitomises slow fashion; it is treated as a purchase of heritage and lasts for generations.

At New York Fashion Week 2022, the world had the opportunity to see the incredible collection of Victor Glemaud, who paid tribute to the exceptional black culture and black history. The idea of natural shapes and cuts has resulted in amazing fur pieces reminiscent of 60s fur coats that are bound to become timeless classics. Beauty and simplicity are the qualities of luxury that Victor Glemaud has proven with his amazing new collection.

Mr.Glemaud pointed out some of the advantages and benefits he had during the creation of the collection in cooperation with the Pologeorgis, one of the first manufacturers to join Furmark® and to adopt it in practice. Victor Glemaud emphasized the importance of tracking and certification of fur, which gives additional peace of mind to customers when buying fur, because customers purchasing his designs can be sure of the origin of their fur.

Furmark® is true proof that fashion can be slow, real and personal. In addition to a sense of security, you know your piece is handcrafted.

Customers want to know and be sure that animal welfare is a priority. Therefore, Furmark® is based on scientific evidence, with full independent inspections to ensure that the highest standards are applied. Inspectors examine in detail all aspects of the farm – from food, water and daily care of the animal’s life. Wild fur is only allowed from conservation programs – all of which are run under strict guidelines.

The International Fur Federation has 56 members in over 40 countries around the world. The members of the federation are all actors in the fur industry, including farmers, producers, brokers, auction houses, retailers and designers. Each of these members have signed a strict code of conduct that obliges them to comply with laws relevant to the fur industry in their home countries.

The International Fur Federation is an organization founded more than 50 years ago and is the only organization that represents the international fur industry and regulates its practice and trade. The Federation aims to promote the fur business, establish certification and traceability programs for welfare and the environment, as well as support young designers and small traders who intend to develop in the fashion and fur industry.

The Furmark® certification system was developed by the International Fur Federation (IFF) with associate members, who are eminent representatives of luxury brands, all of whom work with natural fur as part of the supply chain. There are three key principles on which this certification is based: science, independent inspection and transparency.

All Furmark® certificates must also be verified by third parties, while being publicly available and at the same time maintaining pre-agreed standards of sustainability, relevance, availability and traceability set from the outset. Leading industry experts have teamed up to develop a solution for the manufacturing and retail industries in the sector.

Including ChainPoint traceability technology, Furmark® is able to provide full integration and constant transparency throughout the supply chain that benefits manufacturers, retailers and consumers. All Furmark® marks are explicitly linked to individual products and stocks, allowing all distribution to be strictly controlled and monitored, which in turn helps protect and preserve the integrity of the certification system.

Furmark® is a comprehensive global certification and a system for monitoring the natural fur production chain that guarantees animal welfare and compliance with all environmental standards. The Furmark certification system includes only wild and farmed natural fur on farms from leading animal protection programs (including the first animal welfare program introduced on the basis of the European Commission ‘s data on self – regulation and Co-regulatory initiatives).

What does Furmark® mean in practice? As an evidence-based system, Furmark® is applied throughout the supply chain, not just in the earliest stages: for a product to be Furmark® certified, it must go through every step in the Furmark® supply chain. In line with modern societal values and to ensure the highest level of transparency that consumers expect, traceability is at the heart of Furmark®. Those who buy Furmark® certified products will have full access to detailed information about the fur they bought through the integrated QR code and tracking number located on the fur item label itself. Furmark® ensures the highest standards of animal welfare and the environment.

In today’s market, transparency, honesty and openness to communication are key drivers for customers. Furmark® products are traceable, verified and they are guaranteed to meet recognized standards. With Furmark®, every supply chain phase is subject to certification, third party assessment and traceability.

Consumers, suppliers and manufacturers, as members of the supply chain, can feel safe with Furmark® knowing that all stages of the supply chain are subject to strict certification, third party assessment and traceability throughout the product life cycle. The traceability system was designed and developed by a team of independent experts with experience in textile traceability. The aim of this is to track the fur from its origin to the end point, ensuring the same level of trust and assurance at every stage of the supply chain for all involved.

Furmark® principles strive to operate with integrity at all times. In practice, this means that there is a special Code of Conduct for members of the supply chain. This includes commitment to the mission, specific objectives and strategic principles of Furmark®, as well as the requirement for accountability and transparency. Compliance is an essential part of Furmark® and ensures that organizations downstream in the supply chain make the same efforts as those upstream in the supply chain.

It is this combined commitment to all elements of the chain that help to redefine industry standards and thus ensure sustainable, more transparent and reliable trade continues unhindered.

What does the Furmark® supply chain look like?

At the very beginning, it is very important to distinguish between two types of fur: natural – wild fur and fur grown on farms. After that, skins and furs are selected for the tanning and dyeing process. The next process in this chain is done by the manufacturers themselves, who can also be small designers and work towards the final product – a fur coat or fashion accessory that is sent to retail, where the last step is selling the final product.

What are the benefits of Furmark® certification for customers?

Last year, the Forbes Business Council issued a statement saying that “there are an increasing number of demands regarding transparency in the fur industry” because customers in the 21st century demand full transparency in the supply chain, which includes all processes. Precisely because of this aspiration towards open communication with partners and customers, the International Fur Federation has created a system – Furmark®, which is designed to offer consumers peace of mind, knowing that animal welfare has been well considered. Sustainability is at the core of both systems: Furmark® and the Global Fur Trade System.

What are the benefits of Furmark® certification for manufacturers (brands and small designers)?

Furmark® uniquely transforms customer perceptions by offering complete transparency, traceability and security. Consumers desire Furmark®, and this was shown in an extensive consumer opinion survey conducted by the International Fur Federation in 2021. It was found that 70% of customers in 5 key markets (France, Italy, Spain, UK and USA) were willing to buy fur, and from these, 65% had a positive initial opinion of the Furmark® system. Of these, 28% of participants said they would consider purchasing a product that includes natural fur if it is Furmark® certified.

Therefore, Furmark® certified products have the potential to increase sales by more than 400%. Furmark® enables sales with complete confidence and the knowledge that quality and safety is met at every level.

Customers now have a unique opportunity to purchase and wear natural fur with the launch of the comprehensive Furmark® global certification and traceability system that guarantees animal welfare and environmental standards. To instill peace of mind in consumers, the International Fur Federation, with the contribution of LVMH Group, the world’s largest conglomerate of luxury goods and key brands, has helped develop the Furmark® certification system, where all products are easily traceable, verified and guaranteed to meet recognized standards. Furmark® will change the way customers see fur and open up some completely new and unexplored markets.

The Furmark® certificate fully responds to the baseless accusations of those who oppose fur. The fur industry is large and complex, but the International Fur Federation has seized the opportunity to bring together all industry leaders, scientists, sustainability advocates and environmentalists to agree on a set of principles and recognized standards based on science, independent inspection and transparency.

Furmark® certified products have a unique alphanumeric label code that provides complete traceability information such as: fur type, fur origin, animal welfare program, manufacturer information, and place of production. This ensures that consumers buy natural fur with full confidence.

Furmark® certification means monitoring and adhering to all consistent standards throughout the supply chain that include only wild and farmed natural fur from leading animal welfare programs sold through the auction system. Fully certified products must be processed by accredited partners who meet the standard (which covers the sustainability, use of chemicals, emissions and product safety) which includes third-party testing.

Furmark® certified products can only be manufactured by companies that have passed comprehensive inspections conducted by industry experts. Each step of the process is recorded through a traceability component that is available to the user, thus ensuring transparency throughout the supply chain.

Each animal welfare and sustainability program has a detailed, independently developed and science-based protocol or standard. Appropriate programs are then subject to the assessment of third parties who are certified by a recognized body. Strict, active application is ensured by regular visits and assessments: those who do not meet the standards will be excluded from the certification program and the Furmark® system.

Furmark® was created as a sign of trust and commitment to real fur. Its task is to confirm the value of sustainable natural fur. Responding to all the wishes and needs of consumers, a simple recognizable and global sign has been created – Furmark®. This unique system brings together all the leading independently verified animal welfare certification programs.

Developed in consultation with conscientious consumers and modern fashion groups and brands, the Furmark® symbol is a sign of guaranteed quality and trust. In order for consumers, retailers and brands to have complete security and confidence when buying fur, Furmark® combines independently verified certification programs within one system. Obtaining a certificate means that the international, national or regional program has met Furmark® global standards.

Finally, I would like to summarize some of the basic benefits of Furmark certified products:

1. Furmark® is a global certification and traceability system for natural fur that guarantees animal welfare and respect for all environmental standards.

2. Furmark® is simple with recognizable characteristics of quality, safety, and confidence that is of utmost importance to all members of the supply chain and customers.

3. Furmark® programs for animal protection and environmental protection are scientifically based, third-party certified and transparent.

4. Furmark® products are traceable, verified and guaranteed meet all necessary recognized standards.

5. Furmark® is the result of the joint efforts of fur industry members, brand representatives and consumers.

My dear fashion lovers, we have reached the end of this special post where we learned something new about sustainable fur fashion and sustainability, while respecting the environment! See you soon when we will continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog!

I would like to take this unique opportunity to thank my mom for helping me take pictures for this post. Also, I would like to thank my associates for their selfless contribution to working together on this interesting topic which we have done for you.

Arpanu Medical: My experience with cosmetic nose surgery in Turkey…

Dear readers, welcome to another new post on Mr.M blog. After 6 years of Mr.M blog existence, I know that people who visit my blog are divided into two groups: hedonists who are fans of more interesting travels and fashion lovers who are looking for interesting fashion inspirations.

Today’s post will be a little different, but I’m sure it will benefit all of you who are thinking about cosmetic surgery. The previous post was a kind of guide through Istanbul and partially explained the principle of medical tourism in Turkey. Today’s post will be dedicated to our personal experience with plastic and cosmetic surgery in Istanbul.

My mother had an unsuccessful nose intervention more than 15 years ago, she did rhinoplasty with nasal septal deviation surgery – septoplasty in Serbia. My mother was very disappointed with the results and out of fear she decided not to do this type of intervention anymore. The years passed, my mother expressed increasing dissatisfaction and I decided to help her fulfill her dream – to finally breathe and get a better look of her nose.

On the other hand, I was not satisfied with the appearance of my nose either and I had a problem with the deviation of the nasal septum. Honestly, my desire to have a more beautiful nose prevailed and along the way I decided to improve my quality of life, if I allow myself to breathe better.

When was I aware of the moment that I would change myself? The moment I bought plane tickets for my mom and me through the Air Montenegro website, it was only then that I realized that I would finally do something nice and useful for my mom and myself.

Arpanu Medical Travel is a travel agent, certified as a medical tourism assistance agent by the Turkish Ministry of Health and has been an active member of the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies since 2011.

Arpanu Medical aims to be your reliable partner during your medical experience in Turkey. Each patient has their own unique customized program with health services provided by esteemed hospitals and private clinics in Turkey. The basic task is to combine health with comfort and safety while performing the selected medical program.

Through its close and intensive cooperation with renowned local health care providers, the company enables it to continuously expand the range of services, formulate unique programs and offer cost-effective solutions for patients.

All operations are performed by highly qualified doctors and medical staff in modern, fully sterilized operating rooms with sophisticated state-of-the-art medical equipment.

Arpanu Medical offers a large number of medical services in the field of: Hair transplantation, Aesthetics , Dentistry, Bariatric surgery – obesity, ophthalmic services, in vitro fertilization – IVF, Oncology, as well as regular Health Check-Up.

What does medical tourism in Turkey look like with the Arpanu Medical and how does the process go from the beginning to the end of the chosen program? All information about the process you can find on this link.

In this post, I will describe our experience with Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic, which belongs to the Arpan Medical travel group of medical institutions. Dr. Serkan Aygin founded the Dr. Serkan Aygin Medical Centre, which brings together highly qualified medical specialists, who provide the best medical services to patients with their experience.

Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic together with hair transplant services offered by Dr. Serkan Aygin also provides health services in the field of esthetics and cosmetic surgery.

The look of the clinic itself is modernist and you just don’t have the feeling that you are in a medical institution, but that you are in a museum of modern art. Dr. Aygin wanted to pass on his love of art and medicine to his patients, where in addition to exceptional service, patients can enjoy the beauty of modern art.

Before the first consultation with the chosen doctor, you get to fill out one type of questionnaire with basic personal information and about your health.

After the consultation with our surgeon, my mother and I realized that we had come to the right place. Mom and I were thrilled by the kindness of our chosen surgeon and Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic staff. The doctor listened to all our wishes and pointed out to us the possibilities, as well as potential solutions to our problems. My mother was offered a secondary rhinoplasty with a complete reconstruction of the nose and a cartilage transplant.

My mother’s operation was generally more difficult because of her condition, while my wishes were quite demanding because I had a specific vision of the look of my nose and face. The doctor was extremely patient, cheerful and smiling at the same time with a great deal of optimism, which gave my mother and me confidence that everything would be just perfect.

The next step was to schedule an intervention and wait for it! Excitement that is sometimes difficult to understand, but it is human nature to hope and strive for the best.

OPERATION DAY

As with any cosmetic surgery, a certain type of preparation is required, you receive all the necessary instructions from the chosen surgeon during the first consultation, so you know exactly what you can and cannot do before the intervention.

Before the operation, blood tests and diagnostics (heart and lungs) are performed in preparation for the intervention itself and general anesthesia. Our tests were done on the day of the intervention. My operation was scheduled for 9 am, my mother’s between 1 and 2 p.m.

It is important to note that the local transport between the hotel and the clinic is regulated so that you do not have to worry about coming to the clinic for the first consultation, going to the operation and examinations that follow after the operation.

After the preparations, our surgeon came to visit us before the operation to go through the list of our wishes once again and to confirm all the requests. Because of the great excitement, I can only remember the quick change into hospital pajamas and the smiling nurses who greeted me during my “journey” through the hallways to the operating room.

The picture was taken 3 hours after the operation

Most of people are afraid of general anesthesia because each organism reacts differently to surgery and general anesthesia. Since I had various types of surgery (perforated appendix surgery, jaw surgery, etc.), I had experiences with general anesthesia several times, sometimes I was conscious, sometimes I only remember the details of waking up from anesthesia through the dream.

This time I really had a wonderful experience because from the first moment of waking up from anesthesia I was cheerful and in the mood for conversation with people. Anyone who remembers my Instagram stories, you know that I filmed the moments after waking up with an ice mask on my face.

Before and after my nose job – rhinoplasty

The operation went great, I got a meal after a couple of hours where I had an appetite and I ate well and talked to the clinic staff. After a few hours, the anesthesia subsides and mild pain begins, which can be regulated with painkillers and sedatives, but if you believe me, I didn’t take it. My pain was mild and I felt more like a kind of discomfort due to the swelling present, nothing more…

Mother’s makeover: before and after secondary rhinoplasty with total reconstruction and cartilage transplantation

My mom on the other hand had a slightly harder night due to more demanding surgery, but after receiving two doses of painkillers and tranquilizers the night passed relatively calmly and we were both curious to see what we looked like, the difference was that I had a phone so I could look at “the mirror” while my mom was quite impatient because she had nothing on hand to allow her to look herself.

My mother had a more difficult recovery because her operation was demanding, since a secondary rhinoplasty was performed with a complete reconstruction of the nose and a graft transplant in the form of a graft. 7 cartilage grafts were transplanted.

Since I had surgery in the morning, the nurses came to me in the evening to let me know that it was time for a little walk. I admit, I was scared because I felt mild pain and discomfort due to the swollen face, but with the advice of the nurses, little Marko left the Instagram and the recordings and went for a walk around the corridors of the clinic.

I am one of those patients who are extremely obedient and have a few questions and a thousand sub-questions. I took seriously the task of not looking at the ground, but keeping my head straight all the time, and that first walk went in the best possible way.

My mom later went for a walk, in the early morning hours, she had a feeling of nausea, but the medication helped her get through it all!

RECOVERY TIME

How is the recovery period after rhinoplasty? Recovery is an individual matter and depends on the severity of the procedure, I can only share my experience with you. We spent one night in the hospital and headed back to the hotel. We wore a nose mask for 7 days. My mom had extra patches for her nose reconstruction which I helped her to take off after 7 days.

While wearing the mask on your nose, until you take it off, you receive instructions and certain medications that help you reduce the pain, swelling, antibiotics and other drugs.

Day 7: Removing the nose mask and it’s for shooting the first post-op results

Swelling and bruising, how to deal with these “visitors”? Swelling and bruising are the most common guests after nose surgery that you will hang out with for a while. There are various tips and tricks that can help alleviate swelling and bruising with the help of medications and ice packs. In time, everything comes into its place, you just need to be patient. Time heals everything…

One picture with our surgeon

Nose surgery is a very delicate surgical intervention that has great health and aesthetic significance. Deviation of the nasal septum can be a major health problem and difficulty breathing can reduce quality of life. On the other hand, the aesthetic aspect of rhinoplasty is important because it restores self-confidence and a person feels better when he sees a better version of himself in the mirror.

When you decide on this type of intervention, it is very important to find the right doctor who will understand your wishes and needs.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Arpanu Medical Group and Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic for this exceptional experience and it was a great pleasure to visit Istanbul and change myself. Also, special thanks to Air Montenegro, which made my adventure unforgettable, and I hope to pack my bags again for some new adventures and memories that I will remember!

Dear readers, we have come to the end of this special post from Turkey, which would not have been possible without the selfless help of Air Montenegro and Arpanu Medical Group, partners who made it possible for me to share my impressions of medical tourism in Turkey.

The picture was taken 8 days after the nose surgery

Time always flies when a person has a good time! A man is rich at heart if he has managed to explore the world and I am glad to always be able to find suitable partners for my projects that allow me to discover some new and unusual destinations in a completely different way during this global health crisis COVID-19.

I am honored to have the opportunity to work with companies that are at the very top in the each industry and I would like to thank them for this amazing adventure and for allowing me to experience the charms of Istanbul in a completely different way.

How did you like this story of mine today? Have you ever considered changing something about yourself and doing something special for yourself? Cosmetic surgery is not a taboo topic and people should talk a little more about this type of intervention and you should be careful and watch who you trust and take care of your body.

If you decide to do something for yourself and help yourself, feel free to contact Arpanu Medical team which will help you to fulfill your wishes and feel a unique experience and see why Turkish doctors are the best in Europe and in the world as well!

Fashion Diaries: True Elegance never goes out of Style!

Dear my fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today’s post will be a little different from previous fashion stories because today we have a special guest who decided to share her definition of elegance with us. Many of you have asked me where my mom is and you wished to see her in some new fashion story.

We have a family tradition that my mother and I are in charge of fashion awareness, while my father and sister are our eternal projects for experimentation that are not exactly fashion lovers. My father’s famous sentence quoted by everyone in the family: “Style is obviously a hard and arduous sport as soon as my wife and son don’t come home from morning till night!”.

My mother never had the need to try to find beautiful things, I really don’t know how, but she has a fashionable “sixth sense”. During the purchase, she has a feeling of which store to enter and which she is sure will find the real treasure. She is one of those people you can send to an outlet or to Mars, she will miraculously find an extremely beautiful thing (in my father’s dictionary there is a definition, beautiful = expensive).

She is a woman who has an eye for detail and who notices everything, the best expert who just needs to look at a garment or fashion accessory and you will immediately get a comprehensive and detailed explanation of why you should buy something, or why you should give up and look further…

One of the things I could never learn from my mom is the true definition of elegance. Elegance is reflected in the ease of choosing models, cuts and colors. When you mention the word elegance, people often mean wearing only one-color pieces of clothing and fashion accessories, but reality and theory sometimes differ significantly. Achieving an elegant and refined look requires a little effort and a good choice of colors. It is important to never forget what the real power of simplicity really is.

Some pieces of clothing and fashion accessories are simply timeless iconic classics. Real classics resist the ravages of time and you can always wear them regardless of constant fashion changes. Among these pieces of clothing are certainly quality coats, ballet flats and the famous pearl necklaces. These pieces of clothing and accessories are still as attractive today as they were 20 or 30 years ago, and most importantly, they are always elegant. It is good to have these details in your collection, because they are a sure way to achieve an elegant and refined look in women world.

On the other hand, men also have fashion details that never go out of fashion, such as good suits, coats, jeans and sneakers. Many people think that time will do its thing and that some fashion piece will become obsolete, but believe me, miracles happen!

Never underestimate the power of a good and quality bag, because this fashion accessory completes every fashion outfit. This does not mean that the bag must be strictly branded, but it is important that the model is simple and made of quality materials. What you should always strive for are flat cuts and breathtaking models.

If you want to achieve a refined and elegant look, you must know what suits you well. What exactly does that mean? You simply need to know which colors suit you best, but also which models of coats, skirts and dresses best suit your build. Don’t buy clothes and fashion accessories at any cost just because they are on sale or you will be taken away by the “ultra” attractive cheap price. Sometimes it may be better to pay a little more for a good piece, but it will look good on you and you will be satisfied.

For a good look and achieving the full effect, it is especially important how you will take something, it is a “game” where attitude and self-confidence are very important. Only a person who has an attitude and who is confident in himself can look elegant and refined. An elegant person is what she really is, not what she wears. Don’t let the clothes wear you, the pieces of clothing are there to contribute to your expression of personality.

In today’s post, my mother and I wanted to show you the beauty of cashmere items and fashion details of the fashion house GOBI Cashmere from Mongolia. Coats are timeless classics that never go out of fashion, and regardless of current fashion trends, each of us should have a beautiful red or camel coat, because these are colors that can be easily combined with other colors.

Founded and built by the Mongolian community, the GOBI Cashmere brand combines tradition, modern innovation and technology to make pieces of the highest quality cashmere for almost 40 years. GOBI Cashmere offers the finest and most luxurious pieces made of cashmere. This brand is known around the world for special cashmere coats and is the only company in the world that exclusively produces cashmere clothes with many years of experience and immense love.

Mongolia is known in the world as the “Kingdom of Cashmere” because of the way this precious material is produced and made. The cold Siberian climate has led to the breeding of Mongolian goats in a special way and because of that they have a dense undercoat that contains the longest and thinnest strands of wool in the world.

This “royal fiber” is the softest and highest quality cashmere. What makes the goats of Mongolia even more valuable are the four different natural colors that can be found alone in one area.

In addition to participating in improving the financial balance, cashmere has played a vital role in the professional training of shepherds and enabling them to participate in the business fashion world. GOBI Cashmere is one of the few companies in the world that gives shepherds the opportunity to eliminate intermediaries and thus make direct sales.

To prevent the possible use of cashmere knitwear by the world’s leading brands, they also have the freedom to negotiate directly with customers so that they can have their voice and set the price. Unfortunately, this business opportunity is not available in most rural areas, but GOBI Cashmere is working to improve conditions.

Even the inhabitants of large cities in Mongolia recognized the dedication and work of their nomadic colleagues. For them, it is something more than just a piece of luxury cashmere clothing. Over time, the GOBI Cashmere brand has become a part of the national identity that the Mongols are very proud of. Cashmere has always been synonymous with cloud-like quality and softness. Fibers obtained from cashmere goats are three times better thermal insulators than sheep wool. Wool is combed during the natural process of wool shedding, when goats begin to change their wool and “change” their magical winter coat.

Shepherds with generational knowledge manually comb cashmere fibers to protect goats from overheating and secondary diseases such as ticks. This is the best, most sustainable and most humane way to get cashmere. This way of getting cashmere is almost like a massage. Cashmere is a very delicate material, but with proper care, you can wear your favorite pieces for a long time.

What does the process of traceability GOBI Cashmere mean? The GOBI Cashmere cashmere tracebility process means that every production step will be recorded from start to finish and all processes will be preserved. In order to be able to document the origin of each strand of cashmere fiber, many records need to be made. GOBI Cashmere presents its new project on the possibility of tracking cashmere fibers.

This project will provide an opportunity for all customers to find out where the cashmere from which their garment is made in Mongolia comes from. Because cashmere is indeed a sustainable source of raw materials, each product received a monitoring rating based on several factors. I believe that this revolutionary project will mark a new era in the fashion industry.

I am sure you are interested in learning more about this unusual and traditional brand from Mongolia so you can find all the information on their official social media channels on their Facebook page and official Instagram profile.

Today’s elegant outfit was completed by a watch from the Akylon collection of the art Swiss brand MUSE, which you had the opportunity to meet in one of the previous posts.

The case is made of 100% titanium in the color of rose gold, while the dial is made of aventurine, a type of quartz that is characterized by its transparency and the presence of mineral impurities in the form of platinum that give it a shimmering or shining effect called aventurescence.

My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze brown-gold color. The bracelet is made of Elaphe water snake skin, which does not belong to the protected species. For all additional information and news about MUSE watches, you can follow them on their official Facebook page and Instagram profile.

MUSE watches are for all art lovers with refined taste and a sense of aesthetics. The basic idea of the founders of the MUSE brand was to re-examine and present the representation of time through an artistic prism. Mr. Robert and Mr. Leuba replaced the traditional hands, so the hours, minutes and seconds are shown in special art forms inspired by elements of nature and architecture.

MUSE dials are a moving art, time passes and different formations and shapes are made. Watches have become real small pieces of art today, only technology and inspiration have made it possible to enjoy the beauty of shapes that change on the MUSE dial every minute.

This spring, some new models also arrived from my friends Picard, who supported my adventures around the world for years, and Picard’s leather friends never let me down. The quality and design of Picard accessories is amazing and after so many years and carrying pounds of luggage I carry my Picard backpacks in blog posts as well.

Today, my mom got a chance to see the quality and beautiful design of their most famous Weimar model from the special premium collection Made in Germany. This model is made of the highest quality leather with a crocodile print in a gentle navy blue color.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this fourth special post where we discovered one incredible knitwear cashmere brand from Mongolia! How did you like our outfits today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great spring outfit in camel or red color?

We really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and we hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

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,
Mr.M
