Fashion Diaries: True Elegance never goes out of Style!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The process of vaccinating the population in Germany has begun and I believe that the situation will soon improve and that our lives will return to normal soon!

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and please wear a mask.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!

With love from Berlin,
Mr.M

Fashion Diaries: Beige, a gentle color that will make your day amazing!

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and that you have done all the preparations for the weekend! Today we will bust some myths and prejudices about the beige color and I will try to present you some basic characteristics of this wonderful color. Beige is one of the most appreciative colors that is easy to adapt, this color itself is very calm, neutral and easily fits with any color thanks to its “drowning neutrality”.

Beige is a natural color with a visible admixture of brown and white. Many people find this color boring, while some find it very relaxing to the eye due to its neutrality. This color goes perfectly with bright and dark colors because beige is a great “background” color that can combine colors and create true harmony.

People believe that beige is a symbol of conservatism, piety and simplicity. I love this color and for me it is the epitome of sophistication and elegance. Beige color is light and neutral and can simply soften any combination that contains pieces of bright colors, while on the other hand it can successfully extract the best from some dark shades that are not pleasing to the eye.

If you want to emphasize two or more darker shades, it is necessary to add clothing items or fashion accessories in beige color and achieve a relaxing effect. Beige color is easily combined with pink and yellow, and in that way you achieve a gentle, attractive and conservative look. If you decide to combine beige with brown, orange and black, then an ideal palette of earth colors is created and the combination gets a strong and sophisticated look. Combined with blue, beige gives warmth to shades of blue, but never manages to fully compensate for the intensity of cold blue shades.

Beige is a color that suits every person, it’s just a matter of some personal preferences and tastes because some people don’t feel comfortable wearing beige. Today I decided to show you what the harmony of earth colors looks like with beautiful pieces of cashmere made by my friends from the company GOBI Cashmere from Mongolia.

Founded and built by the Mongol 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 great love.

GOBI Cashmere is one of the few brands in the world that has integrated the sustainability program with respect for its tradition and the roots of the nomadic lifestyle. Nature conservation and harmony are the only life values nurtured by nomadic shepherds in Mongolia. Generations of shepherds who lived in the steppes for thousands of years, creating a unique tradition of Mongolian nomads. Gobi Kashmir is a brand that has combined its traditional heritage with modern sustainability initiatives.

A non-profit organization that deals with the protection of the value of cashmere, the “chain of life” from shepherds to retailers. Founded in 2015, the SFA (Sustainability Fiber Association) organization provides an independent, non-competitive platform that allows to protect the rights and values of all participants in the cashmere value chain, as well as non-governmental and governmental organizations, to unite a common interest in ensuring sustainability in industry cashmere.

The main goal of the SFA organization is the safe production, processing and launch of internationally traded cashmere fibers, while respecting the law of sustainability, which results in better environmental protection and economic development for participants in the value chain.

All members of this organization are committed exclusively to three clear goals:

  • Environmental protection – Ecological sustainability in the Mongolian regions where cashmere is produced.
  • Community protection – Improving economic conditions in the long- term for all pastoral communities whose livelihood depends solely on the cashmere market.
  • Animal protection – ensuring the right to life of animals in cashmere production.

GOBI Cashmere, in cooperation with the non-profit organization SFA, supports a special project that covers the topics of cashmere sustainability. This project aims to support the sustainability of cashmere in order to reduce and prevent the deterioration of grazing and wildlife protection conditions in rural parts of Mongolia. Through this comprehensive program that brings together all actors in the cashmere value chain, the project improves the lives of shepherds and the development of a sustainable cashmere industry in the provinces of Dornogobi and Bayankhongor.

I’m sure you are interested in learning more about this unusual and traditional brand from Mongolia, so you can read my previous posts about this brand, brand history – link, GOBI Cashmere traceability program – link. You can also find all the information on their official social media channels on the Facebook page and their official Instagram profile.

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

The model you have the opportunity to see in today’s blog post is one of the models from the new collection for Spring – Summer 2021 and also it is iconic model Buddy. I must admit that this shape won my heart over at a very first sight. The Buddy backpack in black leather is very elegant and urban so you can wear it on absolutely any occasion.

Since the entire outfit was in a certain classic tone, I decided to take my favorite Dolce & Gabbana crocodile sneakers I bought last year for a walk. I have to admit that they complemented this outfit in an unusual way.

They may have spent some time in the closet, but in the end they waited for their five minutes of fame! Of course, this shade of drape color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe.

Gobi Cashmere: Mongolian World of Cashmere

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great! I am sure that you have done all the preparations for the weekend and that you have organized time for yourself and your family. Spring in Germany is significantly different from spring in the other parts of Europe, which is a bit refreshing. The climate in Berlin is varied, throughout the year, but mostly a colder climate prevails. The springs are windy and with a lot of precipitation, which have all the characteristics of autumn.

Why is it perfect? For me, it is an ideal climate because I am a big fan of knitwear and then I have the opportunity to wear them through several seasons!

Today, I present you a brand from Mongolia that processes “royal fiber” into pieces that warm people around the world. 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, great love and passion.

One of the most important questions arises: Why is cashmere extremely important for Mongolia?

There is a hidden gem in the interior of Asia, more precisely somewhere between Central and East Asia, which was overshadowed by its larger and wealthier neighbors. This gem is Mongolia – the land of the royal fiber that the world knows by name – Cashmere.

Did you know that Mongolia is a world leader in cashmere production and participates in about 50% of world production on a global market, which indicates the quality of production. Mongolia has slowly but surely become recognizable on the world fashion scene.

The importance of cashmere can best be seen in the rural areas of Mongolia where economic development is encouraged. Cashmere is a source of income and employment for more than a third of the population of this unusual Asian country and a large part of nomadic families that make up 90% of the total household income.

Mongolia’s economy depends on cashmere production due to the cold and dry climate of Mongolia, which is not ideal for the development of agricultural branches. Due to the lack of many resources in the country, cattle became their most valuable asset. For these nomadic families, their survival plays a crucial role, while they maintain and transmit centuries-old traditions. Today, shepherds are increasingly relying on the cashmere industry.

In addition to participating in improving the financial value, cashmere has played a vital role in the professional training of shepherds and enabling them to participate in the business fashion world. GOBI 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 a voice and set a price. Unfortunately, this business opportunity is not available in most rural areas, but GOBI 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 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 unique 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 “lose” their winter fur 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 cashmere items for a long time.

The Mongols take cashmere for granted because it is one of the most valuable materials that is part of their tradition. Almost every Mongol can get it at a reasonable price and enjoy the quality and characteristics of this material. At the same time, high-quality cashmere is still one of the most luxurious fibers that can be found around the world, including countries like Mongolia that produce more than is needed.

Cashmere is much more than a soft and warm material from which quality and luxurious knitwear items are made every day. It is a depiction of a way of life, a long tradition that has developed from generation to generation. GOBI is making efforts to protect Mongolian nomads and their goat herds by introducing the ability to get know more information about the cashmere fibers used to make GOBI 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 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 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 will explain the goal of this project in more detail and 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 pure elegance outfit was complemented by a watch from the Schroeder 1877 collection “Gentlemen Renaissance” model Broker with a rose gold case and an iconic brown crocodile bracelet.

This watch was created from a scratch that was researched and developed over the years by engineer Fred-Eric Bolzli. The watch shows local times in the cities where Schroeder Joailliers jewelry products are represented: Luxembourg, Moscow, Dubai, Shanghai, Tokyo and New York.

Even this time I had no dilemma which watch I would put on my hand because the Schroeder The Broker watch was made as an ideal combination of the inevitable rose gold color case with a bracelet of an iconic and timeless dark brown color.

For all those who did not follow my previous fashion adventures, this watch is a novelty, so I suggest you read the Schroeder story and get acquainted with this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their incredible story. You can follow Maison Schroeder on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

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

The model you had the opportunity to see in the previous blog post and today’s is one of the models from the latest collection for Spring – Summer 2021, and I must admit that this shape won my heart over at a very first sight. The Infinity backpack is very elegant and urban so you can wear it on absolutely any occasion.

I used these sunny spring days in Berlin to take for walk my new Jacob Cohen sneakers made of pony hair, which I was a little indifferent to at first because I was afraid that pony hair would fit in with my spring style.

Of course, the brown color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe, and the pony hair further accentuated the elegant note of this elegant – casual outfit.

MUSE: New Artistic Era of watches…

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? This spring was spent in cheerful and interesting fashion stories. I would like to thank you for the wonderful messages of support and suggestions for the Mr.M blog that you send me every day. In the previous months, I wrote to you about some new brands of watches that have beautified my outfits and some of them have found their way to your hearts, and I am glad that my recommendations have helped you find your ideal friends with whom you spend time.

A watch is more than just an instrument used to measure time. With the development and modernization of the watch industry, watches have become real small pieces of art that adorn our hand on all occasions. We wear the watch when we go to work, when we go for an casual city walk, but also on those formal occasions when we reach for a little more elegant pieces that would complete our outfit.

The watch is sometimes an ideal gift for people who are dear to you because a watch is a special gift and is given from the heart. Watches are like people, with different characteristics and temperaments, and every watch finds its owner, it is a thin thread of connection that is felt the moment you open the box and see your watch. When someone gives you a watch, believe that you mean a lot to that person and that you have a special place in their heart.

Today I present to you a Swiss brand of art watches that has moved all limits and presented a new modern era of timekeeping – MUSE. When you read the brand name, you understand the importance of art and inspiration, which are just one of the basis of this unusual young Swiss watch brand.

This young brand was founded in 2016, in response to today’s fast-paced lifestyle, allowing art lovers to slow down and enjoy the moments that mean something to them. Is it possible to stop time?

Science has not proven that yet, but the MUSE brand achieves this with a slow-motion display of time, enabled on luxuriously made watch models from special 6 collections.

The duo behind this Swiss watch brand is made up of two industry experts and big watch lovers Pascal Robert and Frédéric Leuba. What brought the two watch engineers together with decades of experience is the love for watches and the vision of merging the classical watch tradition and the elements of contemporary art.

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. As I said at the very beginning of today’s post, 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. In the following post, I will tell you the details of each collection that are specific to the MUSE models.

All MUSE watches are available in two sizes: 37 and 44 mm. The hexagonal shape of the MUSE watch case is very common and their watches are made of titanium. Titanium, as a material, is not only extremely light, but also very useful due to its resistance to corrosion and scratches. In addition, titanium is considered hypoallergenic, which is an ideal material for all those fans of watches who are looking for nickel-free watches that cause allergic reactions.

If you are looking for a watch for everyday use with great artistic value, MUSE watches are the ideal choice for you.

The watch I chose to be my partner in the new adventures is the Akylon GT. The watch 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 radiant effect called aventurescence.

My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze-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 account.

The jacket you have the opportunity to see today is from the new Brunello Cucinelli SS21 collection, a classic iconic timeless model of a suede Safari model jacket made of suede leather with 4 pockets. You can always find this model of jacket in the offer of the Italian fashion house Brunello Cucinelli, only the colors always change depending on the season. Like all products of this renowned fashion house, this piece is made of the highest quality materials, in this case of the finest suede leather which is extremely light and due to its color easily fits with almost all related colors that you can wear during spring, summer and autumn. current drape and beige tones.

Jeans are also part of the new Brunello Cucinelli collection for spring – summer and I can tell you right away that these jeans have become my favorite piece in the wardrobe this season. I’m sure you’ll see them more often this summer on my blog!

Today I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to another new brand on the Mr.M blog that comes to us from Sweden. Stenströms is an internationally known Swedish fashion brand for its exceptional quality. Using only the best fabrics, the Stenströms company makes classic and modern clothes. A perfect blend of tradition and elegance with the constant development of manufacturing technology based on 120 years of sustainable craftsmanship.

This short-sleeved T-shirt made of the highest quality merino wool has a classic polo collar and a V-neck. This unusual, neutral brown color, someone will say the color taupe is ideal for all occasions and is easily matched with other colors of similar tones. This shirt is made in knitted ribs in the cuffs and on the hem.

I decided to show you how you can wear this t-shirt on everyday casual occasions that do not require a strictly formal way of dressing, but if you want to achieve a more elegant classic look, you can wear this t-shirt on classic tailored pants.

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

Today I present to you the Infinity model, my new friend from the new Picard collection who is keeping me company in Berlin this spring, while we are ready to look forward to the new travel adventures that await us.

OUTFIT

Leather Jacket: Brunello Cucinelli

T-Shirt: Stenströms

Watch: MUSE Art Watches

Jeans: Brunello Cucinelli

Backpack: Picard

Sneakers: Jacob Cohen

I used these sunny spring days in Berlin to walk my new Jacob Cohen sneakers made of pony hair, which I was a little indifferent to at first because I was afraid that pony hair would fit in with my spring style.

Of course, the brown color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe, and the pony hair further accentuated the elegant note of this sportive-elegant casual outfit.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered some more interesting brands together! How did you like my outfit today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great spring outfit?

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.

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 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!

Fashion Diaries: Wish upon a Berliner Style…

Dear fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I am sure that the previous week passed in a good mood and that the preparations for the weekend are over and you are ready for a weekend.

Today’s fashion story will be dedicated to the fashion that is popular in the capital of Germany. Many fashion experts consider Berlin to be the center of urban and street fashion. Berlin as a fashion center is quite “modest” because unlike other European fashion capitals Milan, Paris and London, Berlin is unique, authentic and really simple.

The first and basic “fashion” rule in Berliner style (read like the entire German fashion world) is practicality and comfort. In addition, the clothes must be comfortable. Germans exclusively like to feel comfortable in the clothes they wear, they do not like tight and uncomfortable shoes, tight and short jackets and skinny jeans are not part of Berliner fashion trend.

Germans like practical, durable and comfortable clothes, to feel free in their “second skin” for a whole time. Since the sun finally came to Berlin, now the autumn tracksuits have been replaced by summer jeans and silk “pajama tracksuits”. When I say silk pajamas, I mean those colorful silk T-shirts and pants that we can easily put on and go out on the street.

In today’s post you can see how the average German dresses during warmer, sunny days, which believe me there are not many in Germany because springs and summers are much colder here with precipitation so you feel like you live somewhere between rainy autumn and cold winter with some small number of sunny days all year round. Over time, people get used to the climate and learn to appreciate every sunny day you welcome in Berlin.

Speaking of the concept of casual and comfort Berliner street fashion, today I decided to wear my new SVEVO silk T-shirt, which has a classic and timeless cut. T-shirt made of the highest quality silk, short sleeves with a ribbed bottom and cuffs.

During the production of SVEVO products in the weaving process, special very small holes are made on the back of each garment in a number that varies depending on the size, starting with one hole for size 46.

It is a trademark of the SVEVO brand, regardless of use and condition of the product, even in case of loss of the label, it is always possible to determine the originality of the garments of the Italian brand SVEVO Parma.

Resort knitted jacket is one of the best-selling clothing items of the SVEVO Italian brand. This type of jacket is a necessary item in the wardrobe of every man. The characteristics of this jacket are elegant and simple lines with decorative seams that fit every man perfectly and easily fit into a sophisticated modern image of a man.

This jacket is ideal for all transition periods, when you are not sure what to wear when you leave the house, and it is too warm outside for a winter jacket, but it is not warm enough for short sleeves.

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 missed my previous story on the blog, you can visit this link and read the amazing story about this unusual knitwear Italian brand. A story about the brand with a long family tradition, exceptional quality and constant innovation.

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.

Today’s casual, street elegance outfit was complemented by a watch from the Schroeder 1877 collection “Gentlemen Renaissance” model Broker with a rose gold case and a brown crocodile bracelet.

This watch was created from a scratch that was researched and developed over the years by engineer Fred-Eric Bolzli. The watch shows local times in the cities where Schroeder Joailliers jewelry products are represented: Luxembourg, Moscow, Dubai, Shanghai, Tokyo and New York.

Even this time I had no dilemma which watch I would put on my hand because the Schroeder The Broker watch was made as an ideal combination of the inevitable rose gold color case with a bracelet of an iconic and timeless dark brown color.

For all those who did not follow my previous fashion adventures, this watch is a novelty, so I suggest you read the Schroeder story and get acquainted with this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their incredible story. You can follow Maison Schroeder on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

OUTFIT

Jacket: SVEVO Parma

T-Shirt: SVEVO Parma

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877

Jeans: Brunello Cucinelli

Backpack: Picard

Sneakers: Angelo Galasso

I used these wonderful sunny spring days in Berlin to walk my velvet sneakers, which I was a little “cold” at first because I was afraid that velvet would fit my style. The first thing on my mind was maintenance, but as they survived a couple of unexpected rainy walks they have now become my favorite piece!

Of course, the navy blue color with these golden details easily blended in with the other pieces in today’s outfit and the velvet further emphasized the elegant note of this outfit.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another myth about the German cult of street fashion! How did you like my elegant-casual outfit today?

I really tried to prepare today’s post for you 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.

Fashion Diary: Something old, something new, something blue…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and you are ready for a new fashion adventure on Mr.M blog. I believe that you are tired from the last working week, but the weekend is coming and I am sure that we will all recharge our batteries for new victories to come.

As the title of the today’s post says, I will show you how I managed to combine something new, something old and something blue, so we will see how successful I was in that task!

My friends from my hometown tell me that the weather in Belgrade is wonderful, I sincerely wish I could brag about how wonderful the weather is in Berlin, but these days I have more of an opportunity to wear a raincoat than an interesting spring jacket. I don’t know if it’s just some of my subjective feelings, but I think that the weather climate have changed significantly, this spring has the typical characteristics of autumn.

Morning and evening temperatures are lower, sometimes with precipitation and the weather is quite unstable. I experienced in one day during the photo shooting that I experience heavy dry snow like you can see in Snow Globe, the sun is shining, it is raining and all that at the same time of course, is accompanied by a strong wind. I know it seems impossible and amazing, but the weather in Berlin is changeable and people don’t even know how to behave anymore and what they should wear.

When I saw the first rays of the sun, the only thing I could do was send a quick message to the photographer with the words: “I think now is the right time!”. After I got an answer from the photographer to be ready and “to make it happen” in 20 minutes, I only had enough time to brush my teeth and at the speed of light put on the things I had been preparing for days and fitting into this outfit.

The turtleneck that you have the opportunity to see on me today is certainly at least 3, maybe 4 years old, if you will believe me, I never wore it because I did not have the courage to make a perfect fit it with my other items in the closet. I think that the speed this time was crucial and that’s why I put on this turtleneck without thinking and went to take some photos.

As I write this post and look at the pictures, now I realize that the quote: “It’s never too late! Everything in life happens for a reason and at the right time! ” I think that this turtleneck, no matter how funny it seemed, waited too long for its “five minutes” and that I gathered the courage to take it.

You know why I adore Berlin? It is one of those European capitals where there are no fashion rules and official codes… You can go out to throw garbage in a ball gown or if you are not in the right mood you just can go outside in total home casual lounge wear, everything is allowed.

A couple of days ago, I read the German Vogue magazine and saw the headline – “Are you ready for the blue fashion wave?”. I am not one of those people who blindly follow fashion trends, but I got the inspiration to find some blue details from my wardrobe and include some of them in my new fashion story.

I don’t think you can guess how that fashion battle through my closet looked like, since there were things on all sides and the first thing I saw was a navy blue Burberry trench coat and this time it was the base item for me to fit the fashion details in this outfit.

Since the coat had leather details on it, I didn’t give up until I found these pants that have a leather line because I had a feeling that they would be the perfect choice.

There was a dilemma between 3 sweaters: dark navy blue, royal blue and this azure blue sweater that you have the opportunity to see on me today. Honestly, if I had time to think, I don’t think I would have chosen this sweater because it is too intense in color to be covered, so I was constantly waiting for the ideal opportunity and a better sunny day when it could be worn individually.

As for the choice of watch, I really didn’t have a dilemma because the Schroeder Joialliers watch was made as an ideal gold-black combination and because of the details on the coat, I just know that it will be the ideal choice.

For all those who did not follow my fashion adventure last week, this watch is something new to my watch collection, so I suggest you read my previous story and learn something new about this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their story.

I will share with you a small piece of the story of the Schroeder jewelry brand. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it.

The watch you had the opportunity to see in the previous and today’s post is a new model from the classic Gentlemen Etrier collection that got a redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder. The traditional classic with the best Swiss mechanism got a new modern look!

The new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” watch has Quartz “Ronda 515” movement, white dial with guilloché center and 3 Arabic numerals, and date indicator located at 6 o’clock.

You know that I never leave the house without a backpack and because of that there is always my best friend Picard who never leaves me. This backpack you see today in my post has survived adventures with me across Europe and the world, but as you can see we are still like new and fresh, always ready for some elegant occasions and city adventures.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

Turtleneck: Loro Piana

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Versace

Sneakers: Loro Piana

I owe you a story about sneakers, but believe me, it’s not that interesting because as a “double” virgo in my horoscope, because of my obsession with cleanliness, I arranged and clean up 5 pairs of navy sneakers and left them to dry. If I tell you that these are really the first sneakers that I saw in the last second and managed to get close to the trench just to see that the colors match, happy that I fit the outfit nicely, I had to go back to the apartment because I forgot the backpack… Sometimes, it happens!

Can you guess what is hidden in this wonderful package? I managed to find out only after this photo shoot because we took a picture on the way to the post office and I didn’t want to open such a wonderful gift on the street, but to keep this wonderful decorative paper in the warmth of my home, the color is beautiful! You know how much I love decorative papers and I like to collect and keep them all…

I know, it sounds hard, but it’s been my hobby since I was little! My mother could never clean up the house of decorative papers from gifts and fine stickers, when I went to college on one occasion she accidentally threw everything away because she mixed up the boxes and today I can’t regret that I was left without those wonderful decorative papers.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another new fashion trend that will be trending this spring! Do you have in your closet some interesting blue fashion piece that you plan to bring out and see the light of day? How did you like my outfit today? Share with me your opinion!

I really did my best 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.

Is it possible to look fashionable and elegant in loungewear?

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the Mr.M blog. I hope you are well, that you take care of yourself and that you are counting down the days until the New Year with great expectations. For how many years I have been running the Mr.M blog so far, you have had the opportunity to see me in some more elegant editions or everyday combinations that included jeans.

I have to be honest and say that you can count the fingers of one hand how many times you saw me in a loungewear (tracksuit). Otherwise, in my free time and during the trip, I often wear tracksuits because they are the most practical and the person feels most comfortable during the trip.

Tracksuits have always found their way to our closets, they have their own fashion cult. There are people who wear tracksuits exclusively, and even to work, if they are lucky enough to have reasonable employers. Tracksuits for me represent a special type of fashion where the basic idea is to make a person feel comfortable, over time tracksuits have become elegant, so now some models can be worn on more formal occasions.

Honestly, it used to be hard for me to imagine, but when I saw some models of tracksuits, I completely changed my mind and realized that the concept of sportswear has changed over time.

In an interview, a fashion icon who is unfortunately no longer with us – Karl Lagerfeld stated that the joggers of the tracksuit is a sign that someone has given up on himself as a man and has surrendered without thinking about dignity.

In a way, the set of tracksuits has always been in fashion, many famous public figures and my fellow world influencers and bloggers wore the set of tracksuits in their relaxed releases and thus “forced” a counter to a famous designer who proved during his life that there is nothing. other than elegance.

I think that everyone has the right to dress as they want, it’s just that each of us has those days when we want to leave the house and walk without thinking about what to wear or whether we dressed “according to someone’s taste”. Even today, some people think that people who wear tracksuits only go to throw garbage and walk their pets, or they have decided to do some sports activities.

Today, loungewear is worn with elegant jackets and coats, if you use elegant fashion accessories, the tracksuit can completely change its original look and you get a completely different fashion combination with some special sporty elegant vibe.

My tracksuit today stands out from the classic rustling materials from which those casual fashion pieces are normally made. My friends from the Johnstons of Elgin brand proved to me that an everyday tracksuit can be made from the highest quality cashmere.

The inevitable combination of navy blue and gray color slightly emphasizes the special elegance of this set of tracksuits, whose upper or lower part you can buy separately if you have some special sympathies for one of the pieces or just do not want to be uniformed.

All of Jonhnstons of Elgin cashmere loungewear range is expertly crafted from the finest fibres to provide a soft touch matched with durability so you can enjoy an elegant look with lasting comfort.

From the living room to luxury travel, Johnstons of Elgin loungewear is straightforward and sophisticated, with minimalist detailing and refined styling. The using of Australian Merino Wool in their new lifestyle capsule collection provides an accessible price point while neutral colour shades add an organic feel.

OUTFIT

The entire outfit is made up of products from the new Johnstons of Elgin collection for Autumn-Winter 2020/21. In the list below you can find links for each product from today’s post.

Great news for all of you, since I regularly get questions, do I have a discount code, I asked the Johnstons of Elgin team and they came out with great deal, so with the code “MT10” you have a special 10% discount on the entire product offer Johnstons of Elgin.

Cashmere Sweatshirt: Johnstons of Elgin

Cashmere Joggers: Johnstons of Elgin

Backpack: PICARD

Sneakers: Loro Piana

Johnstons of Elgin is a brand that try to make each piece with great care and you can really feel it when you worn their products. Their models are extremely comfortable, practical and wearable for any occasion, whether it is the clothes you need for every day and work, up to those slightly more formal occasions.

Of course, I also completed this outfit with Loro Piana sneakers that you haven’t had a chance to see on my blog so far. The first thing you can notice is that the colors of two different manufacturers fit perfectly and that this outfit is a real urban sporty elegance vibe.

Of course, this time too I took the opportunity to walk my best friend Torino through the streets of Berlin without which I can’t otherwise imagine my day. Picard backpacks are of exceptional quality and design and for all these years I have remained a loyal consumer to them and become a brand ambassador.

I like these clothing combinations the most, which can be described simply, without exaggeration or the need for unnecessary description, because we all have our favorite tracksuit in our wardrobe, which we wear on all occasions, no matter what others think of us.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your beloved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this situation just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I stick to the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear masks, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the famous new fashion icon – tracksuit. How did you like this outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new story from Germany!

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 page. See you soon with another interesting story!

Best,

Fashion Diaries: The Secret lies in finding the right accessories…

Dear my fashionistas, good morning and welcome to my blog. Difficult times have come and instead of counting down to the holidays that are getting closer to us, we live in fear that we will be healthy the next day. At the very beginning of the post I would draw your attention to be careful and to look out for others. I think that each of us has a conscience, and if you feel bad, stay at home and let’s hope that this health catastrophe will pass soon and that we will all see the light at the end of the tunnel together.

Today, this cold November Tuesday, I am sharing with you another fashion story from the streets of Berlin. November is sometimes really the last month of the year when we can take advantage of the weather and walk some of our favorite fashion pieces that occupy a special place in our closets. In my case, it would certainly be – a Trench Coat!

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see a navy blue trench coat, but today I will show you a honey-colored trench coat, which is one of the most famous and best-selling colours of the fashion house Burberry.

I remember when I got my first Burberry coat which I still keep today, but if someone had told me I would get a similar coat few years later, I really couldn’t believe it.

In addition to this favorite piece of mine that has refreshed my fall wardrobe for this and next seasons to come, I am also looking forward to some new unexpected details that have enriched my outfit today.

The watch is known as the best fashion accessory for every man. There is a quote: “Show me what kind of watch you wear and I’ll tell you who you are.” Every man determines his style, and fashion accessories are the ones that determine the direction in which that style will develop.

A wristwatch is much more than just a time indicator. A watch is a piece of art that adorns the hand of every man and woman and depicts the personality of the person wearing it. When buying a watch, the most important thing is to forget about trends and find yourself and stay consistent with yourself and your style.

Today I decided to show you a new watch in my collection – Epos Originale 3420 SK – an elegant automatic skeleton watch in an extremely thin edition.

The Epos company was founded in 1925 when Mr. James Aubert founded his own watch factory “James Aubert SA” in Vallée de Joux, a valley in the Jura Mountains that many consider to be the “cradle” of mechanical watches and is located in the Swiss canton of Vaud (Waadt).

Mr. Aubert was a passionate mechanical watch engineer, who dedicated his life to the development of new watch mechanisms. He was a top master of his craft and spent most of his efforts focusing on the technical development of chronographs and minute tutors.

He passed on his true love for watches and his knowledge to his son-in-law, Jean Filion, who then became the leading manufacturer of EPOS watches for many years. Mr. Filion has continued the tradition and made great strides in the innovations that have made this brand so unique in the market.

In the early 1980s, the success story of the traditional Swiss watch stagnated. New quartz technology has radically changed the true face of the watch industry. There were almost no brands that wanted to produce classic mechanical watches, with the exception of a few luxury watch brands.

Peter Hofer, a longtime expert in Swiss watch production, was one of the few who still believed in the future of mechanical watches. Believing in this vision, his wife Erna, as the biggest support, decided to found their own company in 1983: Montres EPOS SA.

Their only property was exclusively a passion for mechanical watches and all the necessary technical knowledge to create mechanical masterpieces.

Personal contacts with key people in the Swiss watch industry, as well as extensive knowledge of the global watch market, have enabled Peter Hofer to successfully develop his own brand. From the very beginning, Hofer was supported by Jean Fillon, who was the driving force behind many interesting EPOS innovations.

During 20 years of his work, Hofer has remained true to his vision, developing stunning collections that include fascinating mechanisms in collaboration with Mr. Fillon.

In the early 2000s, Peter Hofer sought successors who shared his indescribable passion for mechanical watches.

New business partners in EPOS are the Chonge-Forster family, a family with deep roots in the Swiss watch industry: Ursula Forster, who became the new president of the company, comes from a family with a long and rich tradition in the production of Swiss watches. Her husband, Tamdy, who has taken over as CEO, has been working in the top positions in the Swiss watch industry for many years.

Together, they took over the company from Mr. Peter Hofer in 2002 and have since developed the EPOS brand, expanding their product portfolio and expanding internationally. Building on the long legacy and knowledge selflessly invested in the company, they have always focused on creating highly sophisticated mechanical masterpieces at affordable prices, remaining true to the company’s slogan: Art in the watchmaking world.

After this interesting story about time and tradition in Switzerland, where time is highly valued, we move briefly to the most famous cradle of fashion – Italy.

There is no person in the world who cannot hide his joy when he smells the new Italian skin. Today I present to you the most famous workshop that creates real small leather masterpieces. Welcome to the Restelli workshop where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet.

Now let’s all imagine this picture together: “Milan, 1920 and a glove shop near the Duomo”. At the same time, they made personalized gloves in according to the wishes and tastes of each customer.

At that time, gloves were a symbol of elegance and sophistication, an irreplaceable fashion accessory for all occasions. Piero Restelli soon realized that his passion, handwork with the best and most precious types of leather and deep respect for craft production were just the beginning of a long successful journey that would reshape the glove industry.

The factory was founded with its own leather reserves, which played a very important role in the leather processing process, over time production began to increase. The success of this small family company goes further and takes us to the early 50s when Piero Restelli Jr. and his wife, young and determined, presented their special collection of sportswear…

Soon, on the streets of Milan and throughout Italy, waterproof gloves made of the highest quality peccary leather covered with warm opossum fur became a symbol of the Italian “Jet Set” of high society and Restelli became a world-famous brand.

Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. Passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation after 100 years! Rafaela Restelli has fully accepted the challenges of the new fashion era in which the market and the way of selling have changed with deep respect and belief in tradition and love for beautiful masterpieces that last!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with a tradition and history full of love and patience that have no price.

I believe that today we have all recognized something beautiful in these stories, and that is respect for and preservation of tradition, following innovations in step with the times and dedication that has no price.

Work, effort and discipline are the three basic things that are needed to maintain in any business. Of course, there are also those moments when happiness, belief in one’s work and dedication play an important role.

The COVID-19 health situation brought difficulties to everyone, the world stopped and just started to develop and return to normal, but the new wave that started in Europe during October 2020 resulted in another wave that affects the development and survival of many industries.

In Germany, the economy began to recover, but with this renewed “quarantine” many people lost their jobs. Some world experts believe that the damage caused by the Corona virus will be significantly greater because many people have lost their jobs and many companies have closed their doors. Do you know how many families were left without income?

Picard, a brand that you have had the opportunity to see on my blog for years, are the famous leather backpacks that kept me company on my travels around the world. My new Picard buddy, we can call him Relaxed We decided to keep each other company on the streets of Berlin while we wait for this health situation to calm down and wait for better days to continue our traveling adventures.

Picard Relaxed is great for every day because it is big enough that I can take everything I need to do my daily duties around the city. The big advantage is the new special lining material that prevents the spread of radiation so you can carry various types of electronic devices without fear that some of the devices will affect your credit card or mobile phone.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

The Roll Neck Sweater: Loro Piana

Watch: Epos

Gloves: Restelli

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Brunello Cucinelli

Sneakers: MooRER

Of course, I also completed this outfit with the perfect brown MooRER sneakers that you had the opportunity to see in previous posts of this fashion season. I can’t wait to show you other models of MooRER sneakers so you don’t criticize me for having only one pair to wear this season.

My problem sometimes is that I get attached to some things and I am ready to wear them a couple of times in a row. This is exactly what happened with the things of the fashion house MooRER, and from a lot of things which I got, I became attached to brown pieces for now, trying to move to another world of colors.

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this as just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten.

Since I made these photos outdoors and I respected all the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear mask, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.

Dear my fashionistas, we have come to the end of this special fashion story about the dedication, tradition, love and patience. How did you like this honey – golden – brown outfit of mine that I walked the streets of Berlin today? I have prepared this outfit for you with a lot of love and I hope you like it! See you in a couple of days with a new fashion story from Germany!

Ron Dorff: Elegant and Urban notes of minimalism…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to my new post! I hope you are doing great and beware of this health catastrophe that marked this 2020 year. Today I have prepared a new fashion treat for you, which is also a continuation of my story about the unique Ron Dorff brand.

If by any chance you missed a previous post dedicated to this brand that is an amazing mix of Swedish functionality and French elegance or you just want to remember some details visit this link.

Today’s post will be a little different with the addition of elegant and urban notes of minimalism that fashion experts associate with the Ron Dorff brand.

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see what Ron Dorff’s sports and street clothing combination looks like, while today I present you urban and somewhat elegant pieces.

Let’s remember a little, Ron Dorff is a brand that extremely cares about Swedish practicality and simplicity – minimalism while respecting all “French fashion laws”. Their motto and guiding idea is: “Discipline is not a dirty word!”.

Diligent work, constant improvement and dedication are the elements that have kept this brand in the fashion world. Over time, this brand has managed to stand out from others and become synonymous with quality and well-designed sportswear.

In the new collection, Ron Dorff proved that sportswear can also have some elegant notes.

Today’s clothing combination represents Ron Dorff’s idea of what a young street “gentleman” should really look like, where the most important thing is to achieve the best possible effect while respecting the laws of elegance and minimalism.

In the new Autumn / Winter 2020 collection by Ron Dorff, the designers found their inspiration in the unique color palette of Scandinavia. The colors in the new collection signify what it looks like 24 hours a day in a ordinary Nordic day that begins at clear dawn with a collection of colors from the “Arctic Dawn” palette, followed at dusk with a palette from the “Arctic Twilight” collection and ends in the darkest tones of the night with colors from special palettes of the “After Dark” collection.

This beautiful white sweater with a shawl collar is inspired by the famous knitted Nordic sailor sweaters. Made from 100% breathable recycled organic cotton that provides an extremely comfortable feeling and allows the skin to breathe.

Finished which is decorated with ribbed cuffs that differ from the rest of the sweater pattern, waistband and a modern collar.

The trousers you can see in today’s post are a new, longer adaptation of the cult tennis pants that Ron Dorff normally produces. A model that captivates with elegance, made of extremely resistant cotton with an admixture of polyester, which guarantees the retention of the original shape over time.

The side pockets are decorated with two pairs of discreetly lacquered black Ron Dorff eyelets by which this brand is recognizable.

In the previous post, you had the opportunity to see these urban perfect white sneakers that are handmade from the finest calfskin with white waxed flat cotton laces and a sole made of natural plant rubber.

Of course, they also have the symbol of this brand, two discreet black lacquered RD eyelets. Interesting information is that all Ron Dorff sneakers are made in Portugal.

Of course, today my best leather friend Picard “Buddy” is here with me, which you had the opportunity to see last year in my fashion stories, he even kept me company during my unforgettable adventure in Azerbaijan.

Today he is here with me on the streets of Berlin and this way I would like to thank my friends from Picard who connected us!

It was a great honor and pleasure for me to bring you closer to the work of this unusual brand through two spot-elegant clothing combinations. In the following posts, you will have the opportunity to see some more pieces of clothing that I really liked in the new collection of the Ron Dorff brand.

Berlin Street Style with Ron Dorff

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? I sincerely hope that you are doing well and that you are ready for another interesting fashion story that I bring to you from the streets of Berlin. I believe that all of you who have been enjoying my fashion stories and travelogues for a long time know how much I appreciate and respect novelties in the world of fashion and tourism.

Berlin is known as one of the biggest fashion capitals of street fashion. Street fashion is specific and there are different styles of street fashion and that is why many say that street fashion is a fashionable game of art. Street fashion in itself is restrictive, but some of the basic characteristics are casualness and “freedom” of cuts and designs.

Whoever followed my Instagram stories from East Berlin shopping district last week, I’m sure you remembered the Ron Dorff brand, about which I will tell you a little more in today’s post.

Ron Dorff
is a unique brand founded by fashion duo Jerome Touron, originally from France, and Klaus Lindorff, originally from Sweden. The name of the Ron Dorff brand itself was obtained by a simple combination of the founder’s surname.

What is the secret of the success of this French-Swedish brand? By simply harmonizing Swedish functionality with French style, Ron Dorff offers completely new dimensions of sportswear, where three things are highly valued: simplicity, functionality and timeless.

A brand that is available to everyone, with a casual sports style, Ron Dorff offers perfect fashion pieces of athletic heritage that fit perfectly, whether worn in the gym, at home or on the street.

From season to season, Ron Dorff proves that his motto is also the philosophy: “DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD” either in the gym or in life in general.

By creating simple, fashion bases as a starting point, Ron Dorff tries to reject all well-known labels that can indicate unnecessary ostentation in the fashion sense.

The interesting thing about this brand is that all the garments and fashion accessories are discrete signed with a pair of metal black-lacquered eyelets that represent the symbols of the two letters “O” which are also in the name of the brand itself. Because of these details, this brand has become recognizable in the fashion world.

The basic vision of this brand is to create simple basic fashion pieces that you can fit easily with all fashion trends. Ron Dorff is a brand that pays attention to every detail. Special attention is paid to the choice of materials and designs. This brand performs almost 90% of its production in Sweden, France and Portugal.

Their motto: “DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD” is definitely a real business “guiding star” in every step of the work of this brand, from the creative idea, design, to the final production of each piece.

In addition to clothing and fashion accessories for men and women, this brand has expanded its simplicity and functionality beyond fashion boundaries with the launch of the DISCIPLINE SKIN line for body care for him and her. This special line was made in cooperation with the most prestigious Swedish skin care brand FACE Stockholm, where the goal is to achieve good results with simplicity and purity.

The list of ingredients is short, without parabens and mineral oils, enriched with active herbs harvested north of the Arctic Circle and all products are 100% produced in Sweden.

In addition to its five flagship stores in Paris, London and Berlin, the Ron Dorff brand’s complete collection is also sold through the official online store: rondorff.com, where online shopping is available for 80 countries around the world.

Of course, part of each collection is also available in some of the best department stores around the world, such as Galeries Lafaiette (Paris), de Bienkorf (Amsterdam), Lodenfrey (Munich), Harvey Nichols (Hong Kong), Le Pasha (St Barth) and The Balancing (Shanghai).

I have to admit that it was hard for me to decide on the right outfit because the new collection of the Ron Dorff brand is really fantastic!

Upon entering the store, I noticed a couple of capital fashion pieces such as classic sweaters and roll neck sweaters, it was just a matter of finding the ideal color for my skin tone. Which I must admit sometimes is quite hard! 🙂

Today I will present you the first Ron Dorff outfit that I decided on in less than 5 minutes spent in the store. I believe that everyone who reads my blog and follows me on social media, knows about my excessive love for navy blue and the even greater “obsession” that I have raised for roll neck sweaters for years.

The first fashion piece I chose was this classic navy roll neck sweater with white stripes. This sweater got me at first sight because of the perfect shade of dark blue – navy blue combined with white stripes is the perfect fashion detail that you can fit in with all seasonal winter colors.

This was followed by a real fashion battle to choose the ideal pants. Since Raphael, the guy who works for Ron Dorff, was incredibly helpful, he had a big impact on changing my original fashion ideas. The vision of the brand itself is to merge the incompatible things, so it was this time as well.

Can you imagine a fashion combination of a perfectly classic wool roll neck sweater and pants that are in the form of an elegant tracksuit with lacing? At a very first sight, my vision was different, but I realized that I was wrong and I adopted some new fashion tips. Maybe I am not fashion icon, but I always try to improve myself as much as I can! 🙂

Since we found interesting pieces of clothing: a perfect navy roll neck sweater and an interesting tracksuit with a two-row white-green stripe, the only and logical choice for this outfit were perfect and simple white sneakers.

I admit that it was an interesting experience to see myself in such an unusual fashion story where elegance is combined with “dirty” street style.

In the new autumn / winter 2020 collection, Ron Dorff found inspiration in the unique color palette of Scandinavia. The colors in the new collection signify what it looks like 24 hours in a Nordic day.

Everything begins at clear dawn with a collection of colors from the “Arctic Dawn” palette, followed at dusk with a palette from the “Arctic Dusk” collection and ends in the darkest tones of the night with colors from special palettes of the “After Dark” collection.

The new collection is dominated by pastel colors and magnificently evokes the mild colors that are common for Arctic dawns. You can also feel a certain northern freshness and of course the colors that are the symbols of Sweden are also present, such as: soft yellow, ice blue mixed with gentle earth khaki tones.

My today’s outfit is inspired by the famous Arctic Nordic Lights. In this color palette, there is a dark blue night color and green, which means the colors of nature and the forest, which, along with white details, evokes the colors of the Nordic winter and sunset.

You must be wondering why the designers decided to combine navy blue, green and white in one place? In Sweden and generally in Scandinavia region, there are natural phenomena where bright green and blue shades “touch” with a palette of purple colors, and these are natural colors that are known in Scandinavia as northern lights – Aurora Borealis.

Of course, this sporty-elegant combination was completed by my new friend Torrino, a new backpack model from the famous German brand Picard, which has been supporting my work for years. The German quality and design is proven by their numerous leather backpacks that have traveled the world with me and are still ready for new new adventures!

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the self care and protection of yourself and your loved ones. Let’s prevent the spread of the Corona virus and try to make this one day just one bad dream that we have successfully forgotten. Since I made these photos outdoors and I sticked to the prescribed physical distance of 2 meters, I didn’t need to wear masks, but I wear a mask indoors and regularly buy hand sanitizers in small packages so I can always carry them with me.
