Aida Barni: Dear Green, I’m Still in Love With You…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new winter fashion story on Mr.M blog! I sincerely hope that you are well and that you are healthy and safe from the current unfavorable health situation with the new strains of the Corona virus. Today’s fashion story will be dedicated to a lime green sweater that radiates exceptional positive energy due to its unusual color.

This unusual cashmere piece was made in Italy in the Annapurna company, which is located in the fairytale town of Prato. Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian cashmere processing. Last winter we enjoyed the beauties of pastel colors, while this year I decided to refresh the cold winter days with bright and unusual colors.

Soft, light and warm cashmere items are a smart “fashion” investment and practical during the winter. When you give someone a cashmere sweater, it is a gift from the heart, because a cashmere sweater carries a certain symbolism with it. Also, sometimes you need to surprise yourself with something new and refresh your life, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, and maybe it’s a new unusual sweater that will bring a smile to your face!

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

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

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

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

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

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see an unusual neon lime green sweater made of 100% cashmere. A classic model that has a collar in the form of a zippered turtleneck sweater that is ideal for all occasions, whether it is going to work or casual winter city walk around the city, this sweater is the right choice for every modern man with style. This sweater can be worn with classic pants, as I did in today’s post, or with jeans to get a casual everyday look.

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

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

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

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

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

We started today’s fashion story with a sweater story, but I would like to tell you something more about other fashion details that you have the opportunity to see in this outfit post. You had the opportunity to see the jacket this winter season from the new collection of the fashion house Roberto Cavalli, while the trousers are custom-made of the finest wool and cashmere of the Italian fashion house Brunello Cucinelli.

The shoes that complemented my clothing combination today are Christian Louboutin, which I received from the most famous German online shopping platform Mytheresa. This model is Rantus Orlato made of real python leather from a limited series made in metallic electric blue color.

The bomber jacket fit perfectly with these shoes, just as if it was created by the fashion house Christian Louboutin! If you want to find interesting fashion pieces and special footwear collection you can find it on the Mytheresa online shopping platform where all fashion lovers can find something for themselves!

If you have been vaccinated (2 doses of any vaccine or an additional third booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety.

Christian Louboutin: Winter Magic of the most desirable Red Soles…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! Today’s post is special for me because together we will discover what really lies behind the magic of the iconic red soles of the famous French shoe designer Christian Louboutin.

Christian Louboutin is a French-Egyptian shoe designer who, from the very beginning of his career, created avant-garde high-end shoes that attracted the attention of women on the streets of Paris with their unique design.

Most of people believe that red soles have been his trademark since the very beginning of the work of this French fashion house in 1991/92. year, but the famous shiny, lacquered soles were introduced by Mr. Louboutin only in 2004 during the launch of the Pigalle model for the Autumn – Winter 2004/05 collection.

Mr. Louboutin once said: “I don’t make seasonal shoes, I create works of art that will adorn your feet and attract the jealous eyes of passers-by.”

Christian Louboutin has become an extremely loved and adored brand among both genders and thus has become one of the most desirable footwear brands of all time.

Each of us who had the opportunity to meet Louboutin shoes and leather goods has their own story, so for me, buying the first Louboutin sneakers was an experience to remember.

I received my first Louboutin sneakers as a gift from my mother for my 18th birthday, my father decided to celebrate my entering the world of adults with a family trip to the city of light – Paris.

My mother, who has always been a huge fashionista, loved Louboutin shoes and wanted to give me something special for my 18th birthday. I remember it was a beautiful, sunny day just to wish for one birthday.

We spent the morning in the museum, but after our birthday lunch we decided to take a walk through the streets of Paris. I noticed that my mother was especially excited, but I could not guess that we would spend that afternoon in the first open atelier store of Christian Louboutin in Paris.

My mother tried to help me choose the perfect pair of CL shoes with her suggestions, but she was more successful in choosing shoes for herself. Honestly, I thought I would come out empty-handed, but the saleswoman brought out some beautiful sneakers to a guy who was obviously not happy with the order.

The sales assistant was not interested in showing me the sneakers, but I was crazy lucky that she was accompanied by a saleswoman from Balkan who left her clients to listen to my description of shoes in the whole crowd, which did not calm down for a single moment.

I think we spent almost an hour waiting for the shoes, but in the end I got what I wanted, beautiful pony hair sneakers in shades of brown with discreet black patent leather details. These were definitely the sneakers of my dreams, an ideal gift, but as it happens in my life, there was one big BUT here – the sneakers were a size smaller than I needed.

Of course, those were the only one size shoes, according to the principle take it or leave it… Mom just said we take them and that’s it! Luckily we have a fantastic shoemaker in Belgrade who solves absolutely all problems and that those sneakers are still in my wardrobe, always tidy and polished, waiting for some new adventures.

A famous question that is always asked: Are Louboutin shoes comfortable? I can only tell you that I have more than 15 pairs of Louboutin shoes that I like to wear and carefully store and maintain. These are shoes that are definitely not bought every day.

The moment when the dream becomes reality is the summer of 2021, when I receive an invitation to collaborate from the famous German online shopping platform Mytheresa and when they asked me how much I love Christian Louboutin shoes? Is it really necessary to ask that question?!

The first Louboutin sneakers I got from Mytheresa Man I presented during the summer season on the Mr.M blog in this post. Who doesn’t have time to read my post, these are the famous Louis Orlato suede leather sneakers with spikes in a beautiful burgundy color.

Shoes which you can see in today’s post are the second pair I got from Mytheresa Man and I can’t describe to you my happiness when I saw the CL box! This model is Rantus Orlato made of real python skin from a limited series made in metallic blue. The sneakers waited for the spotlight this winter when I got new winter pieces that I admit I chose based on these shoes!

The jacket fit perfectly with these shoes, just as if it was created by the fashion house Louboutin! If you want to find interesting fashion pieces and a special collection of shoes you can find on the Mytheresa online shopping platform where all fashion lovers can find something for themselves!

We started today’s story with shoes, but I would also like to tell you something more about the pieces that make up my outfit. The down-jacket, sweater and trousers are from the collection of the fashion house Roberto Cavalli, only the sweater and trousers are from the Cavalli Class line, while the jacket is from the first line of the fashion house Roberto Cavalli.

Trousers are, in addition to shoes, I believe the stars of today’s fashion story because of these unusual metallic gold stars details.

In the last year, I have returned to the good old habit of wearing watches, which I must admit I am glad and proud of! Today, I decided to take to the city one of my faithful allies who helps me not to be late, and at the same time to have an unusual masterpiece on hand is a wristwatch made by the famous Swiss brand Epos. If by any chance you missed reading an interesting story and history of this company, you can do so by clicking on the link.

See you soon and continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog with the hope that I will take new and interesting photos when my bruises pass! How did you like my outfit today?

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you with a lot of love and I hope you will like it!

I advise you to listen to my advice due to the current health situation with the new variant of Corona virus – Lambda 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 and enjoy the charms of the autumn, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and thus encourage crowds.

If you have been vaccinated (both doses of the vaccine or even with third Booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. If you are abroad on vacation, I would ask you to respect local COVID-19 laws related to community health.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or a message for me, you can write to me below in the comments. Of course, as always, you can contact me via email or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. See you soon!

Tod’s: A Fashion Story that combines high quality Craftsmanship and Timeless Italian Elegance

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today’s summer story will be dedicated to the Italian brand Tod’s, which we had the opportunity to get to know better in one of the previous blog posts.

A brand considered the top of Italian design, Tod’s embraces a lifestyle that has always been an association for timeless elegance with superior quality. A way of life that is connected with the concept of the Italian way of life, good taste and “savoir vivre” – the art of living life.

Tod’s is synonymous worldwide for unmistakable elegance and refined style, the brand has for years created true style icons of contemporary luxury through its collections of footwear and leather goods for men and women. Each product is made using traditional and modern techniques of top Italian craftsmanship, creating exceptional items that are the subject of “fashion lust” of all fashion lovers from all over the world.

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

The intervention plan for the reconstruction of the Colosseum is a project commissioned by the delegate commissioner for archeological sites of Rome and Ostia Antica, in cooperation with the Special Group for the Protection of the Colosseum and the Archaeological Area of Rome, and implemented thanks to the selfless support of Tod’s group.

The first phase of works was completed and included the renovation of the northern and southern facades, with an area of about 13,300 square meters, and the replacement of the arch closing system with the construction of new gates.

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

The second phase of work, which began in December 2018, under the leadership of the new autonomous institute Parco Archeologico del Colosseo, included the hypogea area, a “monument within a monument” a kind of amphitheater located below the arena and in ancient times invisible to spectators . More than 80 people took part in the restoration work, including archaeologists, restorers, architects, engineers and other experts.

At the end of the works, a promenade 160 meters long was set up, accessible to all visitors, which gave visitors the opportunity to see the hitherto unexplored part of the Colosseum, which was not feasible before.

Previous Tod’s and today’s elegant outfit as well 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.

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.

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.

This silk T-shirt you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is a part of the new summer collection of the Italian fashion house SVEVO Parma, a family brand that you had the opportunity to meet on my blog through summer fashion stories.

This incredible fashion story began in Bari, when Mr. Nicola Somma opened a chain of knitwear stores for men and women, without any kind of knowledge that he started the “fashion wheel” of an Italian company that still focuses on the values of quality and authenticity.

In 1955, his son Mario Somma founded the first SVEVO knitwear factory for the production of high-quality knitwear, which was made by professional local craftsmen. Thus, from the center of Puglia, a country rich in resources and resourcefulness, threads of sophistication and excellent craftsmanship are developed, destined to weave the future of the company.

Knitwear is a true art that is passed from generation to generation, a secret that is kept among a select few who, with their exceptional skill and intense passion, still manage to weave a new reality and spread love for finished knitted works of art among people around the world.

If you want to be up to date and find out all the news that the fashion house SVEVO Parma is preparing for us, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or a message for me, you can write to me below in the comments. Of course, as always, you can contact me via email or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. I’ll see you soon!

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 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

Gobi Cashmere: Do we know all the Secrets about the Royal Fiber?

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and ready for a new fashion adventure this Friday. In the previous days, I wondered in which direction my blog was going and whether my content was useful for my readers. I asked a question on Instagram and many of you answered that they learned many tips, tricks and advises on clothing maintenance, skin care and hygiene, which I was extremely glad to hear such answers.

Today, I decided to share with you some of the many facts about cashmere, the royal fiber that the GOBI Cashmere company makes with a lot of dedication and love in the heart of Asia – Mongolia. If you want to remember some details from the previous fashion story about the GOBI Cashmere brand, visit this link.

Did you know that Mongolia is the 19th largest country in the world in terms of area with 21 provinces. Each of them has its own characteristics in terms of natural beauty, which has a great impact on goats, and thus on the quality of cashmere. Based on decades of experience, GOBI Cashmere procures its cashmere directly from the 7 provinces where this royal fiber is the best.

After the goats are combed during the hair change in the spring, this valuable royal fiber GOBI Cashmere brand is bought directly from shepherd families. Direct purchase, without intermediaries, enables more favorable prices for customers, guarantees good quality and ethical responsibility as well.

Since the direct purchase of cashmere affects the lower price of the final GOBI Cashmere products, it is also important to find out how the highest quality cashmere products are made in Mongolia. From “raw cashmere” to the final product on the shelf in the store, there is a long way to go, but the whole process takes place in one place – in the GOBI Cashmere factory in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia.

The process takes place in 16 stages of processing and production. In each of the stages, the greatest attention is paid to details in order to obtain cashmere products that meet all the requirements and needs of customers. GOBI Cashmere strives to combine interesting and modern design with advanced technology and thus create innovative knitwear that can be worn all year round.

What are the 16 processes that take place in the GOBI Cashmere factory so that we can enjoy the softness of the finest cashmere items? I will try to briefly describe the production process.

Conceptual and creative product design development – The design development process refers to all knitted and woven products that need to be sewn. Before making a cashmere garment, it first exists in the imagination of the creative team, after which sketches are drawn. When the technical sketch is ready, the first samples can be made. Depending on the design, special instructions are developed to help program the production system in which the factory sample is made for mass production. After that, the factory sample is subjected to precise testing and adjustment of production. Production of the design begins only when the conceptual and factory sample fit completely. A special code is added to the sample, the production price is calculated and a production time frame is created.

Sorting – At the beginning of the production process, cashmere is sorted. The raw material is delivered directly from the nomads in the steppes to the GOBI Cashmere factory, where each fiber is sorted into 19 categories according to color and origin, and it is important to note that all this is done manually. You can never be too precise and for that reason there is a quality control that assesses the strength and condition of each thread. The sorted goods are then weighed, packed and stored. It is now ready for the next step in the production process.

Rubbing (fiber screening) – At this stage, more happens than just washing and purifying the fibers. Before and after each production process, there is a special quality control, then the fibers come to a large machine, where they go through a special washing procedure depending on their micro-consistency, length and color of the fibers. After washing, the fibers are dried and tested before being sent to the next production step on the production line.

Fiber Combing – Washed and dried raw cashmere is packaged for special fiber combing. Raw cashmere is placed in a large comb with sharp combs. Soft combs are separated from coarser combs. The result of this production process is an airy cashmere that resembles a cloud that is so soft that you just want to touch it and take it home. The obtained fibers are carefully collected and a manual quality check is performed before the next step – dyeing and mixing the fibers. Due to the use of large machines, the whole process is specially monitored for the safety of workers.

Dyeing and bleaching of fibers – In the GOBI Cashmere factory, an average of about 1800 colors are created. They all range from very faint shades to more vibrant, strong colors to cover a wide range of colors. The dyeing and bleaching process begins when the combed cashmere is transferred through a tube into a deep cylindrical basket, from where it is poured into a larger fiber dyeing machine. In accordance with health and safety standards for customers and workers, only approved Swiss-made paints are used. To obtain the desired color, an automatic color recognition system is used so that color differences within the spectrum can be recognized. After dyeing, cashmere is dried by a special method using radio frequencies. Radio wave drying is efficient and practical due to its deep penetration and moisture balance. By heating the fibers from the inside, a hot and dry outer layer is avoided and in that way further processing of cashmere is facilitated.

Fiber mixing – To get the perfect shade and the best fiber blend. During this process, different types of fibers are mixed and also different colors of the same fibers are mixed to obtain the appropriate color. All defects of crude fiber are opened and disassembled according to a special recipe from the company GOBI. They are then coated with finely atomized substances to protect the fibers from cracking in the next phase of the mixing process. This is known as carding. The carding machine is equipped with rows of sharp combs to soften the fibers and comb them into a single layer removing the remaining imperfections and all impurities.

Woolen “Spiders” Patterns (thread making) – The process by which yarn is made for weaving and knitting. The thickness of the yarn must be made of solid threads. Combed raw cashmere is usually stretched after the mixing and carding phase, a process known as wool spinning. The stretching and twisting of the fibers is done by a machine that takes up a lot of air in the yarn, making it very light and elastic. During this procedure, each strand is examined for possible defects and cracks that may occur. Wrapped with a machine on combs, the strands are then ready to be twisted into threads and prepared for the knitting process.

Spinning is a process where the fibers are combed and straightened in parallel. Unlike “wool spinning”, cashmere twisting occurs later in “anchor spinning”. The air is expelled during twisting and the result is a smooth, heavy and even yarn. With each passage through the spinning machine, the fibers become thinner, which enables more precise execution of seams and facilitates the knitting process.

Knitting is a process performed with the help of the Japanese modern knitting machine WHOLEGARMENT. As soon as the design process is completed and the patterns are made, the appropriate yarn is assembled in the knitting factory and the design is coded in the knitting machine. Usually the front and back of garments and sleeves to be sewn. With WHOLEGARMENT machines, knitwear can be made in one piece, which saves a lot of time and work. The collars are still sewn by hand.

Finishing process – Knitwear at this time has not yet taken the shape expected. It is necessary to make the material and fibers softer and smoother. This takes place in a “finishing process” that gives the final product softness and smoothness. The product is measured and then the steps of dipping, rinsing, washing, drying, sorting and shaping are repeated. Then accessories such as buttons, buttons, labels, stickers with size information and brand names are added.

Weaving is another technique used in cashmere processing. The products obtained with this technique are most often scarves, blankets and other fashion accessories. Threads from the spinning mill are sent to weaving, where they are knitted and machine-woven. Quality control ensures that designs meet high standards before products are finally “hand-processed”.

Hand weaving process – After the loom, the product is not finished yet. In the phase of hand weaving, brushing and hemming take place, where scarves and blankets are covered with fringes. The products are then washed, washed and dried until a soft and smooth woven product is obtained.

Final finishing of the fabric – the last phase before the delivery of the product takes place through the process of finishing the fabric. It’s all about the final details of soaking, drying and jogging, weighing, labeling and smoothing before the product is ready and ready for delivery.

Fabric printing process – Printing scarves play a major role in this process. Exciting and colorful designs are coded into machines, which then print wonderful patterns on the fabric. In this process, the quality is also measured and of course checked.

Sewing process – In this process, cashmere coats and jackets are sewn. Tailoring is the most important step, followed by sewing the cuff, collar, edges, lining, cuffs and sleeves, which, as well as hemming, are done individually. After each phase, quality control is performed before the product is labeled and packaged for delivery.

Making embroidery – The finished cashmere product is stabilized during the embroidery process. A transparent stabilizer is placed on top of the garment to ensure that the threads that make up the design remain on the surface. After the machine embroidery procedure, the stabilizer is removed and a beautiful, unique embroidery can be seen.

These are briefly described all 16 manufacturing processes in the company GOBI Cashmere, I believe you have now created a certain image in your head that all the processes go through cashmere from entering the factory as fiber to the final product on store shelves.

Cashmere is much more than a soft and warm material from which quality and luxurious clothes are made every day. It is a depiction of a way of life, a long tradition that has developed from generation to generation. GOBI Cashmere is making efforts to protect Mongolian nomads and their goat herds by introducing the ability to track the cashmere fibers used to make GOBI Cashmere fashion pieces.

This option gives you the assurance that you have become the owner of the softest and finest piece that was made with a lot of love by the experts of the GOBI Cashmere team in Mongolia.

What does the process of traceability GOBI Cashmere mean? The GOBI 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. In one of the following posts, 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.

The time on all MUSE watches is displayed in an unusual way: The disk closest to the sapphire crystal represents seconds, the middle disk is used to display minutes, while the disk closest to the dial is used to display hours. The largest geometric shapes are always for displaying the change of hours, to the smallest for displaying minutes.

The MUSE brand has artistic limited watches that are classified into 6 special collections: Akylon, Kagura, Stella, Stella-S, Tanoura and Kyrian.

Since the whole outfit was in a certain classic tone, my friends from Mytheresa decided to please me with unusual Christian Louboutin unusual Louis Orlato sneakers with spikes that complemented this outfit in an unusual way.

Of course, burgundy color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe, and these unusual spikes further accentuated this fashion combination.

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

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

I advise you 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
