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 best ages to change their minds and bring some new colors 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 provide to my son, their proposal for collaboration 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 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 elegant ivory dress, which is ideal for all occasions.
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, gentle ivory color and made of the finest material. An iconic neutral color for the new spring season, which you really need to have in your wardrobe!
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.
Dress: Aida Barni
Pearl earrings with Marcasite sterling silver: Ohrid Pearl Filevi 1928
Silk Scarf: Loro Piana
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
Every lady who wants to achieve an elegant look must always have nice shoes. This time I decided on flat ballerina shoes from the famous Italian brand Giuseppe Zanotti. Giuseppe Zanotti is an Italian luxury footwear designer known for his bejeweled sculptural heels, luxury sneakers, handbags, jewelry and leather ready-to-wear. 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.
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 spring season. See you in a few days at the same place, with some new interesting story.
