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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you want to stay up to date and find out what new things Artigiano Del Guanto has in store for us this winter fashion season, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

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

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

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

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

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

If you want to know more about the Italian fashion house Max Mara and discover what the Maramotti family has prepared for the new fashion season, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

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

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

Best Regards,

Rose

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: ADG, the Beauty of Wearable Luxury Italian Handicrafts

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my last fashion story on the pages of the Mr.M blog in 2023. I’m really glad that you like my take on fashion and that I’ve inspired many women in their prime to change their minds and bring some novelty into their lives.

I would like to take this special opportunity to wish you a happy New Year and Christmas holidays, to spend them in peace and prosperity with those you love. I wish you all the best in the new year, and leave all that was bad behind you and don’t forget to fill the years with life, not life with years. I sincerely hope that you will achieve all that you want, acquire all that you have not so far and save the most valuable things that you need for true happiness. Happy New Year!

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

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

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

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

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

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

In today’s fashion story, I will present you unusual gloves that are made of the finest pony hair. Dafne (GKJ-0818) is a model of women’s gloves collection made of calf leather, completely handmade. The Dafne is developed from bimaterials with a pony-effect calfskin part and a lambskin palm. The Dafne Handmade Glove is made from a hand-woven leather strap with covered buckles. The lining is made of 100% cashmere.

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

Gemmi is a new partner of Mr.M blog, a luxury outerwear brand from Finland. All Gemmi pieces are crafted in the Gemmi factory in Finland with the help of skilled and experienced craftsmen and tailors. The materials they use are natural and sustainable and selected for their quality characteristics and responsible production.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I have always admired women with longer and well-groomed hair, but unfortunately I have had short hair all my life, but with the help of Ellen Wille wigs (supllied by Perike In) I managed to fulfill my long-term dream and I am very happy about it. Wigs have become a trend today, because wearing a wig opens up a number of new possibilities for you to experiment and change yourself, without having to make any permanent changes to your natural hair.

Also in addition to the aesthetic transformation, wigs can provide you with good protection from frequent treatment and heat, keeping your natural hair healthy. The history of Ellen Wille began with a suitcase full of ideas. Ellen Wille is a self-made hair designer who built a global brand from a small company. After completing her studies in Paris, the company was established in 1967. The corporate philosophy is shaped by commitment to the highest quality, and this is what the Ellen Wille name stands for.

For over 50 years, Ellen Wille designs have been inspired by international fashion trends. Her passion for wig perfection is evident – she guides every meticulous detail and each Ellen Wille wig is unique. All aspects of an individual style, from the hair fiber to the coloring to the cap design, is about ensuring the most beautiful look, natural movement and comfortable fit. Ellen remains involved in every detail of design, from the first idea, to the finishing touches of each style.

The wig you see on me today is the Kimera Deluxe wig, a champagne color from the Stimulate collection that has soft and gentle layers that make this mid-length style absolutely perfect. This wig is designed to ensure a tight and secure fit for the woman wearing it. This wig is of medium length and is made of the highest quality synthetic fibers.

How to properly wash a wig? Whether it is a wig made of natural or synthetic hair, there are steps to follow in order to maintain its appearance and quality. The whole process takes a short time and is essentially similar to washing your own hair. Place the wig in a deep dish, into which you previously poured lukewarm water and a little shampoo. After ten minutes, wash the wig thoroughly with gentle movements, then rinse it with lukewarm water. Then pour the conditioner into the clean water, insert the wig and leave it in the water for ten minutes. Then take it out and rinse with clean water.

I recommend that you use Ellen Wille shampoo and conditioner that are specially designed for wig maintenance. The gentle structure of these products will not damage the hair of the wig, and will successfully remove sweat and other impurities from it.

How to properly dry a wig? In order to last a long time, the wig must be carefully dried after washing. It must not be exposed to direct sources of heat, such as hair dryers or radiators, but must be dried naturally, in a ventilated place. The specially designed Ellen Wille stand allows the wig to dry easily and well after washing, keeping its shape.

If you want to stay updated and find out what all the Ellen Wille has in offer, you can follow them on the social media platforms Facebook and Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. See you in 2024 with some new and more interesting fashion stories. I will try not to take long breaks and I hope you understand the reason for my unexpected absence after failed cosmetic surgery in Egypt, but there will be time to make up for everything in the new year and I am sure I will meet your expectations.

Best Regards,

Rose

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: GEMMI, Nordic Luxury Outerwear

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

I would like to take this special opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the many messages and well wishes during my recovery from surgery in Egypt. I must admit that I am delighted by your great interest in my health condition after the operation. Marko read all your messages to me and you can be sure that you made me happy. As for the outcome of the operation itself, unfortunately I am not able to tell you anything more at the moment, due to the new situation in which the state authorities of the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Republic of Serbia are involved, so I would ask for your understanding. Rest assured that I will keep you updated on everything, as I have been doing so far and that I will share my experience with my surgical rejuvenation in Egypt as soon as possible.

I have to admit that I missed you and that I will try my best to write new fashion stories in accordance with my health possibilities, since currently the whole Mr.M team is helping me to fulfill my obligations. Your messages give me strength and optimism to continue my work.

Today’s story will be special because it will confirm a famous quote: “Life is not perfect but your hair can be.” I have always admired women with longer and well-groomed hair, but unfortunately I have had short hair all my life, but with the help of Ellen Wille wigs (supllied by Perike In) I managed to fulfill my long-term dream and I am very happy about it.

I’ve always wondered if wigs made of synthetic hair look not so natural and artificial, since synthetic fibers usually have a high shine, but I’m surprised by the quality of the workmanship, even to the touch I didn’t feel that it was a synthetic hair wig. In the following fashion stories, I will share with you some more essential and important information that I have learned about wigs that you can find in Wigs In The Magical World.

Every woman who wants to achieve an elegant look must always have nice shoes. This time I decided on shoes from the iconic French brand Christian Louboutin supplied by MYTHERESA, which has been making quality shoes with unusual designs. The shoes you can see in today’s fashion story are made of black patent leather with gold accessories with Swarovski details. In addition to beauty, these shoes are comfortable, which is important when choosing footwear.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Aida Barni, Italian Refinement on the Shores of the Persian Gulf

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my new fashion story on the pages of the Mr.M blog. I’m really glad you like my take on fashion and that I’ve inspired many women in their golden ages (50+) to change their minds and bring some novelty into their lives. My story today will be dedicated to a famous Italian knitwear brand, which I’m sure you’re familiar with because you’ve seen it in my son’s fashion stories.

Since I had the opportunity to see for myself the quality and design of the sweater that the Aida Barni brand team gave to my son, their proposal for cooperation surprised me, but also made me happy because they recognized my vision. Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Also, sometimes you need to make yourself happy with something new, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, and I was made happy by the pieces from the new Aida Barni collection for Spring – Summer 2023. Today I present to you this unusual long elegant white dress, which is ideal for all occasions because of it’s beautiful and special knitted work.

I love the sea and sometimes I like to swim and sunbathe, but there is one activity that I am extremely fond of – walking on the beach while the sea washes over the sandy beach. That feeling when I walk barefoot on the beach brings me back to some carefree days of my youth and whenever I go to the sea I like to be alone and enjoy morning walks on the beach. That’s why today I decided to share with you my idyllic moments of peace and tranquility, but with style!

Aida Barni is a brand belonging to the Annapurna Group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and global manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines for women and men under the names Annapurna and Aida Barni. Annapurna uses only the latest production techniques available on the market, from cashmere looms to the latest and most advanced machines for making knitwear of all sizes. The current production capacity is about 120,000 pieces per year.

It is important to note that the entire production cycle is carried out in Italy, more precisely in the company’s factory located in the city of Prato, which is also the center of the district of the same name located in the very heart of Italy (the central part of Italy). “Made in Italy” is more than a manufacturing concept, but this brand has proven that it is much more than the perfect cashmere sweater on the store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression that is remembered.

Aida Barni’s concept of women’s “sporty elegance” is simple and stylish, but rich in materials and subtle details that make this brand iconic because it represents the expression of uniqueness and special class. You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-stocked stores throughout Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it’s more than respect and pure love, because you’re giving a piece that is woven with a love of tradition and a deep respect for art that isn’t given every day.

The dress you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni SS23 collection, crystal white color and made of the finest material. An iconic color for the new summer season, which you really need to have in your wardrobe!

If you want to stay updated and find out what new things Aida Barni has in store for us this fashion season, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Today I decided to re-combine an unusual and striking fashion detail – a fiery red Magenta bag from the new Fratelli Rossetti spring-summer 2023 collection that can change your view of the fashion world. Fratelli Rossetti leather goods and footwear is fantastic for the reason that this brand makes classic shoes that are elegant and simply unbeatable, shoes for all times!

What is the story of this brand? In the middle of the 20th century, more precisely in 1945, Mr. Renzo Rossetti started his story from scratch, where he worked alone to cut leather for several types of sports shoes. His shoes were sold at the famous Brigatti store in Milan, one of the few remaining stores of its kind in the city. After a few years, Fratelli Rossetti saw success, but, wanting to develop further, they transferred the brands and equipment for this special production to Atala Sport in Padua.

The story of the Fratelli Rossetti company is an inspiring story of a successful Italian family business that opened its doors in 1953. This is not just an ordinary business story, but a family story: the founder, Renzo Rossetti, and his wife, Lisetta, were dedicated to their work all their lives. The company Fratelli Rossetti is currently run by the second generation of the Rossetti family, the brothers Diego, Dario and Luca, who, due to their different roles and by developing their own different skills, have successfully brought their company to its 60th anniversary, always in search of quality and united by their passion with strict respect for tradition.

Fratelli Rossetti has a long tradition of “big little innovations”. In this company, tradition and quality have always gone hand in hand with insatiable curiosity and commitment to innovation. From the introduction of tassels and the invention of shoes designed to be worn without socks, to stylistic innovations and the launch of the “masculine” style, to the application of colors in unique chromatic shades. It was Renzo Rossetti who emphasized the importance of embracing new materials, styles and shapes: back in the 60s, he was already experimenting with different color combinations on leather. Today, the company continues its research and development activities thanks to the knowledge of its craftsmen and the creative spirit of the styling department.

Fratelli Rossetti in its collections for women and men has timeless classic iconic models that you can find all year in their offer, some of the women’s models are: Brera, Magenta, Estate and Hobo Sport.

In today’s post I present you one of the iconic Magenta handbags from the latest SS23 collection. A handbag is a special fashion detail that adorns every woman, that’s why I decided to combine this beautiful red Fratelli Rossetti red handbag from the Magenta line with my outfits this summer, which is made of soft smooth leather. The bag has a magnetic closure featuring the iconic Fratelli Rossetti gold-colored metal buckles. You can also carry this bag over your shoulder, that way the bag will get a look of sporty elegance. The main compartment of the bag is equipped with a small inner pocket with a zipper and a small pocket on the outer back.

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

Jewelry is perhaps the most important fashion detail that can say a lot about the woman who wears it. Today I will present to you a special cameo jewelry of an Italian brand that is famous in the world – CAMEO ITALIANO. What exactly is Cameo jewelry? A cameo is a material that is carved in raised relief, often depicting a profile of a face, a still life, or some special mythical scene. Cameos, hard or precious stones carved in relief, or imitations of such stones in glass and mollusk shells. Cameos are usually a gem (usually agate, onyx, or sardonyx) that has two layers of different colors, with figures carved in one layer so that they are raised against the background of the other. Cameo is the converse of intaglio, which consists of an incised, or sunken, engraving in the same class of material.

The history of this material goes back to the early Sumerian period (around 3100 BC) to the fall of the Roman civilization, from the Renaissance and from the Neoclassical period in the 18th century. Greek cameos, made of colored quartz, were purely decorative (as opposed to intaglios, which were used as seals) and reached a high artistic level. In contrast, Roman cameos, mostly made of sardonyx, onyx and glass paste, were usually carved with portraits and mythological scenes and were often signed by the artists. Due to the increased interest in classical civilization, the art of cameo engraving was perfected again in the Renaissance.

Cameos were used to mark personalities, as in ancient times. In England during the 16th century, cameos were made with the head of Queen Elizabeth to celebrate the victory over the Spanish Armada. In the 18th and 19th centuries, cameos adorned jewelry such as diadems, belts, brooches, and bracelets.

The history of the CAMEO ITALIANO brand begins in 1957 when Mr. Michele Di Luca opens the doors of his jewelry atelier. Thanks to his ability and creativity as one of the most talented master engravers, he realized his dream – to bring the uniqueness of the cameo shell to the international stage. Michele Di Luca’s great passion for creativity not only earned him a gold medal for his contribution to the economic development of the Campania region, but also inspired his children Gino, Anna, Pina and Marinella to join the company in 1980. In 2012, Gino Di Luca launched the brand that launched cameo as a contemporary gem: CAMEO ITALIANO.

Each cameo is a small, unique and unrepeatable masterpiece, precious thanks to the artisanal approach to production. CAMEO ITALIANO is part of a tradition that preserves techniques that have been passed down for more than two centuries in Torre del Greco, the only place in the world where shell cameos are engraved. A gem that symbolizes the values and authenticity of the “Made in Italy”.

After many years of experience and passion, the engravers of the CAMEO ITALIANO house were awarded the title of Master Engravers. In this type of art, the viewer is seduced by the love that the artist skillfully imprints into his detailed creation, a process that makes it unique, unrepeatable and therefore beautiful. In the rich offer of CAMEO ITALIANO jewelry you can find necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings, rings and watches. CAMEO ITALIANO jewelry is divided into several collections, which I will present to you in detail in the following posts.

In today’s post I present you the earrings, necklace and watch that are part of the CAMEO ITALIANO collection.

The “Partenope” watch that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is a special watch with a design engraved by hand on the shell and 925 sterling silver, cameo size 30mm. The watch is adorned by a dark blue – navy bracelet.

I chose this unusual set because it irresistibly associates me with my name and I love seeing rose motifs on clothes or jewelry. I am fascinated by the beauty of this jewelry, that’s why I want to invite all those who want to know more about the Italian brand of jewelry and watches CAMEO ITALIANO and discover what the Di Luca family has prepared for the new season, visit their official online store and follow them on social media channels Facebook and Instagram.

Of course, the piece that every stylish woman needs and that helps you “hide” from the world when you need a break – glasses! My favorite model of Panthère de Cartier sunglasses, it’s always in my bag during the summer because when you get to a certain age you don’t want to think about wrinkles around your eyes any more.

During my stay in the capital of Qatar – Doha, I had the opportunity to get to know the Qatari culture, heritage and tradition, and in addition, I attended the opening of the first store in the State of Qatar. Fratelli Rossetti celebrates its seventieth birthday with the expansion of its retail stores in Italy and abroad, celebrating the year 2023 with the opening of its first boutique in Doha in the most famous Mall of Qatar, a new store that proves a significant presence in the Arab markets in addition to the store in the United Arab Emirates in the Dubai Mall.

I would like to thank the Fratelli Rossetti team for the warm invitation to attend the opening of the first boutique in Qatar, as well as the wonderful gifts that marked my spring wardrobe. As part of this event, I had the chance to see for myself the art of handwork and the beauty of hand-knitted leather.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. Soon I will show you other outfits from Qatar that can serve as inspiration for the new summer season. See you in a few days at the same place, with some new interesting story.

Best Regards,

Like every woman, I have a great love for jewelry and during this trip to Qatar I wore my new Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 pearl earrings with marquise silver, which perfectly complemented my outfit today.

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 – Alburnus scoranza. 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 – Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 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. Their jewelry is for people who want to be different, with a unique fashion style.

Pearl earrings that complete my outfit are Pearl earrings with Marcasite sterling silver. You can find the rich Filevi 1928 collection of Ohrid pearls and jewelry with classic, marquise and rhodium silver in the center of Belgrade (Serbia), at Knez Mihailova 29, in the passage next to the Progress Gallery.

Also if you are going to the heart of North Macedonia – Ohrid and visiting the capital Skopje, take the opportunity to visit their stores.

The making of Filevi 1928 jewelry is a real art and each handcrafted piece of Filevi jewelry has, above all, a special sentimental value. Passion for jewelry and love for fine craftsmanship is reflected in every single piece of Filevi 1928 jewelry. All you have to do is imagine and wish for an Ohrid pearl, and Filevi 1928 is here to create and realize your wishes and ideas together with you.

If you want to know more about Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 brand and discover the world of Ohrid pearls, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

I’m sure that every lady needs at least one gold ballet flats that can be worn on any occasion due to their easy-to-match color.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: CAMEO ITALIANO, timeless jewelry for all generations…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to a new fashion story on the Mr.M blog. I want to thank you for your wonderful words and numerous compliments on my work. I’m really glad you like my take on fashion and that I’ve inspired many women in their golden ages (50+) to change their minds and bring color into their lives. Today’s post I will start with fashion details that can sometimes make an outfit more interesting than the pieces of clothing itself.

I’m not sure if I mentioned in one of the previous stories that Leo is my zodiac sign and because of the characteristics of Leos, I have an extraordinary love for the gold color and adore jewelry. Jewelry is perhaps the most important fashion detail that can say a lot about the woman who wears it. Today I will present to you a special cameo jewelry of an Italian brand that is famous in the world – CAMEO ITALIANO.

What exactly is Cameo jewelry? A cameo is a material that is carved in raised relief, often depicting a profile of a face, nature, or some special mythical scene.

In today’s post I present you a necklace, earrings and a watch that are part of the CAMEO ITALIANO collection.

The “Partenope” watch that you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is a special watch with a design engraved by hand on the shell and 925 sterling silver, cameo size 30mm. The watch is adorned by a dark blue – navy bracelet.

I chose this unusual set because it irresistibly associates me with my name and I love seeing rose motifs on clothes or jewelry.

My outfit today is coincidentally made up of Italian brands. The first fashion brand I want to present to you today is Herno fashion house. What caught my eye about this brand is their motto: “In the beginning it was water, which carries the flow of life.” It creates something new…”

This is how In Flumine est vita, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Herno, sums up the praise for the sublime element that animates the brand, water. Whether in river or lake, rain or fog, snow or humidity, it is the muse that inspired the quintessential high-performance product that started it all and continues to this day: the raincoat.

It was from that cotton from 1948, treated with castor oil from the airplanes left by the war, that young Giuseppe Marenzi and his wife Alessandra Diana felt the possibility of opening a business. And from the beginning, with the urgency and enthusiasm typical of that period of great ferment that was postwar Italy, experimentation and innovation pervaded Herno’s vocation.

The coexistence with lake and river water took shape and became functional first in jackets and then in high-performance coats, well designed, made with superior craftsmanship that can only be found in Italy, and also useful for protection from the cold and find shelter from the rain, northerly wind and humidity in the lake region. That’s what water is to Herno: connection, love, passion, challenge, ingenuity. And success.

The winter jacket you see in today’s fashion story is part of the permanent iconic Herno collection, in a bright red color.

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

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

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

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

If you want to know more about the Italian fashion house Max Mara and discover what the Maramotti family has prepared for the new fashion season, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Fashion Diary of Mrs. Mom: Max Mara, Definition of Italian Elegance…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my first fashion story in 2023. Marko conveyed all your questions to me, as well as numerous compliments for my fashion stories, so I made an effort to set aside time to share new inspirational fashion outfit with you. Elegance and refinement are always in style, it’s just a question of how to harmonize it with your age. Young people find elegance boring, so when they try to reach that formal level of elegance, they look much older… Elegance is something much more than clothes, it’s a matter of feeling that comes by itself. You have to work on yourself to be able to be happy with yourself and thus reach that level of refinement and elegance that radiates from you and becomes your mirror.

Even when I was younger, people always told me how different I was because of my attitude and behavior, a typical young lady with attitude. I have always been guided by some inner feeling and I am still guided by it today after so many years. Elegance has nothing to do with age, but the experience you gain over the years will help you more easily reach that certain level of elegance and refinement that all women aspire to.

Elegance is hidden in simplicity and small details that can make any outfit unique and special. In addition to clothes, the attitude and energy you radiate is very important, in order to leave an impression on others, you must be full of self-confidence and self-belief. If you don’t love yourself or don’t believe in yourself, believe me, others won’t love, appreciate and respect you either. Once you master that then you can move on to the fashion aspect. Every woman who wants to be elegant, noticed and chic must take strict care in choosing details such as jewelry, leather goods, shoes and fashion accessories. Elegance is also reflected in the way you carry the bag. You must know how to carry all the things you carry and not let them carry you.

The way you style your hair sends different messages to people and you must always be well-groomed. When I say well-groomed, I mean that a woman should be clean and cosmetically sanctified, today the cosmetic industry has progressed so much that there are creams, serums, masks and various other kind of products that are adapted for women and men of all ages, so you should carry out your care using adequate products. Creams don’t have to be expensive, even sometimes cheap products like ordinary baby soap and the classic blue Nivea cream can make your skin look beautiful. All this is necessary for a lady to be elegant and refined.

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

The company is still in the hands of the family and is one of the best family fashion businesses in the world.

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

Max Mara is my favorite brand because it absolutely meets my criteria when it comes to wardrobe, which are: quality, interesting models and cuts, good selection of materials, as well as fine processing of materials. I believe you all have seen by now how much I love fur and cashmere, so this fur coat is my new fashion love that I am sure I will wear for a long time and beautifully. This coat is made of the finest pure cashmere, while the front side of the coat is made of high-quality mink fur.

In addition to the excellent combination of materials, the very model of this coat is modern and unusual. Depending on what you plan to wear with this coat, it can be nicely combined with elegant outfits, as well as with some relaxed everyday casual outfits. In addition to coats, blouses and trousers are also part of the Max Mara collection. The top is made of cashmere, while the trousers are made of the finest wool.

In addition to a nice and quality coat, I always like to wear pearls, which have always been a timeless fashion classic. My outfit today was enriched by a rhodium-plated silver pearl brooch and earrings from the famous Macedonian brand Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928.

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 – Alburnus scoranza. 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 – Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 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. Their jewelry is for people who want to be different, with a unique fashion style.

Pearl earrings that complete my outfit are Pearl earrings with Marcasite sterling silver and iconic Pearl brooch with rhodium plated silver. You can find the rich Filevi 1928 collection of Ohrid pearls and jewelry with classic, marquise and rhodium silver in the center of Belgrade (Serbia), at Knez Mihailova 29, in the passage next to the Progress Gallery.

Also if you are going to the heart of North Macedonia – Ohrid and visiting the capital Skopje, take the opportunity to visit their stores.

The making of Filevi 1928 jewelry is a real art and each handcrafted piece of Filevi jewelry has, above all, a special sentimental value. Passion for jewelry and love for fine craftsmanship is reflected in every single piece of Filevi 1928 jewelry. All you have to do is imagine and wish for an Ohrid pearl, and Filevi 1928 is here to create and realize your wishes and ideas together with you.

If you want to know more about Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928 brand and discover the world of Ohrid pearls, visit their official online store and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Every woman who wants to achieve an elegant look must always have nice shoes. This time I decided on shoes from the Italian brand CHANTAL 1962, which has been making quality shoes with unusual designs for more than 60 years. The shoes you can see in today’s fashion story are made of plush with Swarovski crystal details. In addition to beauty, these shoes are decorated with comfort, which is important when choosing footwear.

I hope you enjoyed my fashion story today. I am currently in the capital of Qatar – Doha and I will show you some outfits that can serve as inspiration for the new spring season that is knocking on our door. See you in a few days at the same place, with some new interesting story.

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.

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.

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!

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. It was a winter that swept the whole area with cold winds and white frosts, as it does every year. The capital of the Maremma 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.

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.

Today we are meeting again with the famous Italian knitwear brand that you had the opportunity to meet in the previous fashion stories from Moldova. If by some chance you missed reading an interesting story about the André Maurice brand or you want to remind yourself of some interesting details, take a few minutes of your time and enjoy the beauty of Italian luxury knitwear with the following link.

An André Maurice piece of clothing is something more than just a wardrobe, because you have the opportunity to wear an exclusive and unique valuable gift of knowledge. The story of this brand is unique because with the influence of light, colors, smells, atmosphere, shapes and traditions of the territory of origin – Monferrato – combined with the constant desire to discover and face the whole world, we get a unique fashion story that has been passed down from generation to generation for 4 generations.

Art and beauty, culture and knowledge, history and tradition are the axioms that inspire the André Maurice team every day, striving never to indulge in useless compromises or useless shortcuts. Art and culture, in any of its forms, are often able to generate the same surprising sense of satisfaction that has always inspired the André Maurice team in the thinking, design and creation of all collections for a century. In this creative and unusual way, the art and culture of knitting can convey the spirit, love and tradition of the precious hands that participated with a lot of emotion in the creation process.

Tradition is something that is the basic starting point of the André Maurice brand. Gestures, rituals and customs that are repeated and transferred indefinitely, creating a nostalgic illusion of stopping time, which tirelessly chases modernity. Tradition has always been a source of inspiration for the André Maurice team, as an invisible glue between past and present, as well as a deep groove towards the future. By repeating everyday gestures, they remain faithful witnesses of the material and the spiritual burden that should be shown in the work and transmitted over time to generations to come.

André Maurice as a brand that cherishes true values and respects tradition and the spirit of heritage is woven into every piece of clothing, the tradition, culture, and fragrances of Montferrato. Find your Genius Loci and create some of your unforgettable moments to remember this winter season with garments from the latest André Maurice FW22/23 men’s collection and warm your dreams with the softest cashmere.
