Fashion Postcard from Istanbul: A Stylish Walk on the Turkish Cobbled Streets of Sultanahmet…

My dear fashionistas and travelers, today I am taking you again to Istanbul. In today’s fashion story, you will enjoy a stylish walk along the Turkish cobbled streets of the old part of Istanbul – Sultanahmet. This is the last fashion story from Istanbul, next week a shopping guide awaits you, I will try my best to give you the beauty of shopping in this imperial city on two continents.

Sultanahmet Square, once known as the Hippodrome of Constantinople, is today a square in Istanbul, in the immediate vicinity of which are the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Previously, it was a circus that was the sports and social center of Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire. The word hippodrome comes from the Greek hippos (ippos) – horse and dromos – road. For this reason, it is sometimes called Atmeidanı (“Horse Square”) in Turkish. Horse and chariot racing were popular pastimes in the ancient world, and hippodromes were common features of Greek cities in the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine periods.

From Taksim Square to Sultanahmet Square, it is very easy to get there with the help of the tram, and in a few stops you will be in the center of the old city.

The Blue Mosque of Istanbul, also known by its official formal name, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, is a historic Ottoman-era imperial mosque located in the center of the old part of the city. A functional mosque, it also attracts a large number of tourists. It was built between 1609 and 1616 during the reign of Ahmed I.

Its Kulije contains Ahmed’s grave, a madrasa and a hospice. Hand-painted blue tiles adorn the interior walls of the mosque, and at night the mosque is bathed in blue as lights frame the mosque’s five main domes, six minarets and eight side domes. It is located next to Hagia Sophia, the main mosque in Istanbul until the construction of the Blue Mosque and another popular tourist spot. In 1985, the Blue Mosque was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List under the name “Historic Areas of Istanbul”.

Hagia Sophia (literal translation ‘Holy Wisdom’), officially the Great Mosque Hagia Sophia is a mosque and the main cultural and historical site in the old part of the city. The cathedral was originally built as a Greek Orthodox church that lasted from 360 AD until the conquest of Constantinople by the Ottoman Empire in 1453. It served as a mosque until 1935, when it became a museum. Two years ago, in 2020 to be exact, Hagia Sophia became a mosque again.

The current building was built by the Eastern Roman emperor Justinian I as a Christian cathedral in Constantinople for the state church of the Roman Empire between 532 and 537, and was designed by the Greek geometers Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralus. The official name of the church was the Church of the Holy Wisdom. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is considered to have “changed the history of architecture”.

The current Justinian building was the third church of the same name to occupy the site, since the previous one was destroyed in the riots in Nicaea. As the episcopal seat of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, it remained the largest cathedral in the world for almost a thousand years, until the Cathedral of Seville was completed in 1520. Beginning with later Byzantine architecture, the Hagia Sophia became the paradigmatic form of the Orthodox Church and its architectural style modeled on Ottoman mosques a thousand years later. It has been described as “occupying a unique position in the Christian world” and as an architectural and cultural icon of Byzantine and Orthodox civilization.

Since we got acquainted with the history of this old part of the Istanbul, it’s time to write a few words about my outfit. Today we are again meeting with the famous Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli.

Roberto Cavalli is a famous Italian luxury fashion company founded by designer Roberto Cavalli in Osmannore, Florence, during the 1970s. This brand has become famous in the fashion world for its colorful animal prints on leather and textiles.

In celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2010, Roberto Cavalli fashion house presented an exclusive show collection in Paris, which included most of its iconic dresses for which the brand has become recognizable. In recent years, under the leadership of Roberto Cavalli, the new interior design division Roberto Cavalli Home debuted at the 2012 Salone del Mobile.

The shearling leather jacket you have the opportunity to see in today’s fashion story is a rebellious fashion response to current fashion trends. This show piece, masterpiece is crafted from the finest reindeer leather with an arctic fox collar from the latest Autumn/Winter 2022/23 collection.

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

PUNTO: The Ideal Combination of the Timeless Elegance of Fur and Perfect Cut…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure in this new year 2023! Winter is my favorite period for fashion experimentation, so this season I decided to present you some new brands and interesting fashion pieces that won my heart!

Fur is an integral part of every winter, as you could see in my lady mom’s fashion stories. Last year, I introduced you to an extremely important FURMARK project that marks a turning point in the world of the fur fashion industry. The International Fur Federation has developed a formal certification and traceability process, Furmark®. Fur is one of the most sustainable natural materials in the world of fashion. The use of organic materials is a complete contrast and rejection of fast and “plastic” fashion, which are typical petroleum derivatives. Fur is the true epitome of slow fashion, treated as an heirloom purchase that can last for generations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Furmark® certification system was developed by the International Fur Federation (IFF) with associated members, who are eminent representatives of luxury brands, all of which work with natural fur as part of the supply chain.

There are three key principles on which this certification is based: science, independent inspection and transparency.

Furmark® is a comprehensive global certification and monitoring system for the natural fur production chain that guarantees animal welfare and compliance with all existing environmental standards. The Furmark certification system includes only wild and farmed natural fur from leading animal protection programs (including the first animal welfare program introduced based on data from the European Commission on self-regulation and co-regulatory initiatives). For more additional information on Furmark Global Certification and Natural Fur Chain Tracking System, you can read my special post at the following link.

In today’s post, I will introduce you to the most famous Turkish fur and leather brand PUNTO, which is at the very top of the fashion industry. PUNTO is a well-known Turkish brand founded in 1994 as a manufacturer of clothing and fashion accessories made of leather and fur. Punto is today a leader in its sector both in Turkey and on the world market.

Over the past years, Punto Group has risen to an eminent position in the luxury fashion industry. Through unique collections, this unusual Turkish fashion house always tries to follow all the current world trends, as well as to set new tasks for entering new avant-garde fashion territories.

As a global brand, fashion house PUNTO strives to attract the attention of customers with its appreciation for luxury items and unconditional attention to product presentation. In the Punto Group, the main goal is to offer exceptionally high-quality products, top selling locations and authentic prices. One thing is certain, all PUNTO products meet these important and highly valued customer requirements.

PUNTO has a wide selection of products in its rich offer and this has helped this fashion house to build a strong and stable base of loyal clients. The PUNTO management team believes that it is very important to maintain sincere long-term relationships with customers.

The main and priority task of the PUNTO company is true customer satisfaction. One of the main components for maintaining high satisfaction is the special after-sales service. The service offered by fashion house PUNTO after the product purchase is impeccable and their team is always at the service of their customers, because clients should enjoy an endless variety of luxury service.

When you buy your first PUNTO product, you are more than a customer because you become part of the big fashion family of the Punto Group. The fashion house PUNTO tries to maintain these valuable relationships, taking care to know who their clients are at all times and constantly informing them about special benefits and promotions. Members of the Punto family are always invited to special and carefully designed events where new collections are presented and some nice news are announced.

With the experienced PUNTO team of designers and the skilled support of the research and development department, the Punto Group has managed to inspire countless international brands. The PUNTO design team strives to create a variety of collections, with the main focus on customer needs and preferences while following current fashion trends.

Tailoring is the art of custom styling. The passion of the expert PUNTO team for personalization is also the promise to deliver clothes tailored to your individual needs. This promise starts with choosing the best quality natural fur and leather.

Specialists of the fashion house Punto, who provide a special tailoring service, are always at your disposal. The freedom to choose your own style in the Punto atelier and stores is the true definition of luxury and exclusive service. For this unique and unusual experience, you need to visit one of the punto shops.

In today’s fashion story, I present to you a jacket made of the finest mink from the latest PUNTO Autumn – Winter 2022/23 collection, soft cappuccino, taupe color, shades between beige and drape, which won my heart at a very first sight. The collar is a classic English high double-sided mink fur, two pockets with a hidden fastener and of course the inevitable zipper closure.

Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of encouraging change in fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion at PUNTO house is about more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It consists of addressing the entire fashion system. This means dealing with interdependent social, cultural, ecological and financial systems. It also means looking at fashion from the perspective of many stakeholders – users and producers, all living species, current and future inhabitants of the earth.

Sustainable fashion therefore belongs to and is the responsibility of citizens, public and private sectors. A key example of the need for systems thinking in fashion is that the benefits of product-level initiatives, such as replacing one type of fiber with a less environmentally damaging option, are being drowned out by increasing the volume of fashion products.

Feel a special shopping experience in several stores in Istanbul as well as in Antalya. Punto Group has always been proud to raise customer satisfaction to the highest level through luxury service tailored to each customer. The PUNTO team has a developed awareness of the importance of quality private shopping service. If you wish, there is a possibility of a VIP free transfer from your hotel to the PUNTO factory shop by private luxury cars with the provision of a unique VIP catering service during your stay in the PUNTO shop.

If you want to stay updated and find out what models of outerwear, clothing and accessories made of leather and fur the Turkish brand PUNTO has in its offer, visit their official website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

We are moving from the Turkish fashion scene to the Italian one, where we are once again meeting with a brand you know, which you had the opportunity to meet this winter season on the Mr.M blog. The Italian brand we’re hanging out with again today is Marco Pescarolo, a brand from Naples that combines traditional classic Italian tailoring style with modern casual elegance. Naples is known as a colourful, lively, exciting and diverse city, indeed one of the most fascinating cities in Italy. This is where we begin our today’s story about the Marco Pescarolo brand.

Marco Pescarolo is a brand that nurtures the Neapolitan spirit where warm, vivid tones balanced by sophisticated and sharp cuts create a different sense of fashion. The essence of Neapolitan traditional lifestyle and elegance meets contemporary casual style, resulting in a new concept of beauty.

The symbol of the Marco Pescarolo brand is a mask that belongs to the ancient figure of Pulcinella, a representation of the Neapolitan way of life.

The Marco Pescarolo man is one who successfully combines casual and business wear, as well as formal and informal wear, to exude positive energy and poise in any context, regardless of the circumstances. Marco Pescarolo is a brand that is constantly improving and as a result of one of the many researches is the line System: a new generation of fabrics, in which the exceptional qualities of natural fibers are emphasized and improved with special treatments.

Roberto Cavalli: Rebel Spirit on the Shores of the Bosphorus…

My dear fashionistas, welcome to the first post on the Mr.M blog in 2023! Before I start today’s fashion story, I would like to wish you all the best in the new year. Health first of all, but happiness and love are never enough, and we will manage the rest!

Today’s fashion story is dedicated to an unusual Italian brand at the very top of the fashion industry that you have had the opportunity to work with in previous years on the Mr.M blog – Roberto Cavalli.

Roberto Cavalli is a famous Italian luxury fashion company founded by designer Roberto Cavalli in Osmannore, Florence, during the 1970s. This brand has become famous in the fashion world for its colorful animal prints on leather and textiles. Roberto Cavalli produces and sells haute couture – a first line consisting of limited runway models, ready-to-wear products that are divided into several fashion lines, as well as fashion accessories, including handbags, glasses, watches, shoes, perfumes and jewelry. The company also develops an interior design program for high-end buildings and hotels.

Mr. Roberto Cavalli studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. His grandfather was a prominent painter of the Macchiaioli group. His fashion career began in the 1960s. Working in his own silk printing press, he began to apply a new painting technique to fully made garments, which later resulted in garment dyeing techniques. During the 1970s, he continued to experiment with other materials, mainly leather.

Mr. Cavali’s debut collection was held in Paris in 1970, where he proudly displayed his leather patchwork designs, created in collaboration with Mario Valentino. In 1972, he presented his patchwork designs applied to jeans at the first Roberto Cavalli women’s collection show at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the main pret-a-porter event in Italy at the time. His work has attracted many global fashion houses, including Hermès, Pierre Cardin, Krizia and Emilio Pucci.

You must be wondering what the Patchwork technique is? Patchwork is a very interesting technique that has been known since ancient times. The oldest found patchwork works date back to the ancient Chinese civilization, and traces of such works were found in the famous Egyptian tombs.

Fans of this technique also call it “painting with rags”, and the word itself is of English origin and is composed of two words, patch-rag, and work-rad. Patchwork is a special technique of creative sewing, where different fabrics are combined with certain patterns and create decorative units. By combining materials of different geometric shapes, textures, colors, patterns and joining them together, you can make things for the home like bedspreads, cushions, rugs, refresh your furniture, make or refresh old fashion pieces and the like.

The basic way of working with patchwork is to cut and join different shapes and wholes. However, what should be emphasized is that with this technique, precision in work is very important. Each piece of patchwork fabric that is cut must be precisely measured and cut so that there are no mistakes and omissions in the further work.

The 1994 collection at Milan Fashion Week staged a new vision of the Cavalli woman: playful tiger and wild animal motifs applied to jeans, printed clothing, embroidered fur and long, sumptuous dresses that elegantly revealed the woman’s body. Animal print has become a recognizable element of the Italian fashion house Cavalli. Later, sandblasted denim came out and the fashion house was the first to show lycra stretch jeans.

New clothing lines were launched on the market: Just Cavalli, Angels & Devils (renamed Roberto Cavalli Junior) and Class Cavalli. The first Roberto Cavalli mono-brand boutique was opened in Venice in 1996. At the end of 2001, the brand was distributed in more than 30 countries, including the United States, Asia and Russia.

The Marcolin Group began to develop and distribute Roberto Cavalli and Just Cavalli sunglasses and optical frames in 2002 alongside the Sector company, the Cavalli fashion house designs 6 Cavalli watch lines, which themselves achieved incredible success and contributed to the development of this fashion house. In addition to the world of fashion, the fashion house opened the Just Cavalli club in Milan in the same year. A few years later, in 2007 to be precise, Roberto Cavalli became the first Italian luxury fashion brand to create a limited collection for the everyday street fashion brand H&M.

In celebration of its 40th anniversary in 2010, Roberto Cavalli fashion house presented an exclusive show collection in Paris, which included most of its iconic dresses for which the brand has become recognizable. In recent years, under the leadership of Roberto Cavalli, the new interior design division Roberto Cavalli Home debuted at the 2012 Salone del Mobile.

The Monton you have the opportunity to see in today’s fashion story is a rebellious fashion response to current fashion trends. This show piece, masterpiece is crafted from the finest reindeer leather with an arctic fox collar from the latest Autumn/Winter 2022/23 collection.

The Roberto Cavalli Group’s fashion world includes the following brand lines:

  • Roberto Cavalli: a historic collection of evening dresses. This is the first line of the brand and the new era has introduced everyday clothing and accessories, including shoes, handbags, leather goods and jewelry.
  • Just Cavalli: brand launched in 1998, this is a more affordable line compared to haute couture lines.
  • Cavalli Class: a line of clothing and fashion accessories for women and men.
  • Roberto Cavalli Junior: the brand’s line for boys and girls.

Home furnishing line: a line of furniture, wallpaper, tiles, home textiles, lamps and accessories made of Made in Murano glasses.

Mauro Ottaviani: Step into the Stylish World of Premium Italian Knitwear.

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? This is the first post in the last month of 2022, and I believe that, as in previous years, we will have a good time and enjoy winter magic together through fashion stories and travelogues on Mr.M blog. December has been one of the most read months on the Mr.M blog for years, so I hope we will continue this tradition this year!

Today’s fashion story will be dedicated to the Italian brand of refined knitwear that you had the opportunity to meet in the previous post – Mauro Ottaviani. What have we learned about this brand?

Mauro Ottaviani is an iconic Italian brand of refined premium knitwear that warms fashion lovers all over Europe and the world with its incredible pieces! How to describe this Italian brand in 3 words? Passion, innovation and coherence. These are associations for the Mauro Ottaviani brand, which aims to provide a concrete answer to the needs of modern men, who are used to dynamic rhythms, yet capable of appreciating the values of quality and design. The search for raw materials became a central element, following the philosophy that high performance is obtained when design and functionality are perfectly balanced.

How did this brand come about? The roots of this fashion house date back to 1978, when Raniero Ottaviani founded what is still the production core of today’s company – passion and love for knitwear. A few years later, in 1993 to be exact, Raniere’s three children – Mauro, Simona and Elena – took over the group, inspired by their father’s work, but looking for a way to develop it in order to take the family legacy even further.

In today’s post you have the opportunity to see a 100% cashmere roll top, model WS28037 MAKALU. This winter, Mauro Ottaviani has prepared models made of 16 types of fibers and materials for all lovers of quality and refined knitwear. The roll you see on me is made of pure cashmere.

Pure cashmere is the basic yarn of luxury knitwear, it has a soft and silky texture, it is also firm, but also extremely pleasant to the touch. Classic, timeless and exciting material. This yarn is obtained from the fleece of the Hircus goat, and has the following essential characteristics: isothermal (maintains a stable body temperature), hygroscopic (breathable) and antistatic (does not attract dust). The comfort of wearing cashmere clothes knows no bounds. This type of yarn is inherently brilliant and provides perfect color definition. All the colors are strikingly bright and fascinating, especially the white, which embodies the purity of the fiber, as you can see in my fashion story today.

As I mentioned at the beginning, Mauro Ottaviani has prepared 16 fibers and materials for this winter season. Some of them are pure cashmere, cloudy cashmere, Green cashmere, SOFT, Merino Wool, PUKAKI, OPERA, JAIPUR, CASHLIGHT, Cashmere 3/80, CASHCOTTON, CASHMERINO, UPPERWOOL, CASHWINTER, LANA – CASHMERE RACLE.

CLOUDY Cashmere is a processed pure cashmere yarn that gives a fluffy and light look to the garment, bringing both soft texture feel and has low pilling tendencies. With CLOUDY Cashmere, a Mauro Ottaviani exclusive, the brand bring their customers research and innovation even with the most classic yarns. Pampering yourself with soft pullover, in this season, represents the desire to find comfort and simplicity. CLOUDY cashmere highlights both warm and neutral hues, bringing to life and boosting a soft and informal style.

Embracing the current social sensibility around environmental issues, in the last few seasons Mauro Ottaviani has been using a yarn that mixes its environmentally friendly characteristics together with great performance. GREEN CASHMERE is pure cashmere made with an environmentally friendly production process. The fibre used is a blend of pure virgin cashmere and regenerated cashmere from surplus production. The aim of this production process is to minimise the production waste and to create a high quality type of yarn.

A blend of wool and cashmere, SOFT is a timeless classic. The cashmere percentage gives the garment a gentle and precious feel. This type of yarn can be used both for sports garments and for textured-knits alike, as it keeps lightness and volume. SOFT garments can be used for daily wear and are long lasting.

At the heart of MAURO OTTAVIANI collection there is PUKAKI,a 100% 140’s worsted wool,it is created by first twisting long and fine New Zealand Merino wool thread and then by mercerising the fibre to obtain a yarn with unique features of care and elasticity. Garments that are made with this product have a gentle and natural hand feel, a clean and silky look and outstanding thermoregulatory characteristics. The final look is contemporary and refined, it is intended to be a high-end, metropolitan and elegant daytime outfit. PUKAKI Merino wool is ZQUE certified, which ensures its traceability and processing with specific technical and ethical characteristics. OPERA in Latin means both work and comfort, and that’s why we have used this word to name the new yarn that has been presented in MAURO OTTAVIANI FW22 collection. OPERA160 is a superfine 160’s pure merino wool yarn, with a luxurious and cosy feel and it has been certified by RWS and CRADLE TO CRADLE as GOLD level. It is extremely versatile and lavish, it’s bright, biodegradable, fireproof, heat retaining and recyclable: it is perfect to create comfortable garments that are light and high performing. OPERA160 is produced with ethical processes and attention to the environment, people and animal welfare and it is traceable and sustainable. These are the values of new luxury.

100% merino worsted wool 170’s, exceptionally fine fibre from selected Merino sheep bred in Australia and New Zealand. WHISH is a trademark produce of LORO PIANA, and they are the only distributors worldwide. The garnments, knitted in 18 gauge, are lightweight and resistant, the colours are deep, vibrant and bright. One of the intrinsic features is the absence of pilling. The style is modern and refined, perfect for a man that understands and values quality. JAIPUR is a cashmere and mulberry silk blend, and it represents the world of opulence and luxury. The blend between cashmere and silk creates garments that give a tactile and visual experience that is unique in every way. The different shades of colour are bright and striking. JAIPUR garments give an exclusive feel to any outfit: pair them with a blazer they are the trademark of a luxury that stands out from the crowd; pair them with denim, they embellish the whole look.

MAURO OTTAVIANI’ s CASHLIGHT is a 100% TOP QUALITY Ultrafine Carded Cashmere that brings a classic carded look while being light and compact, due to the twistingof the carded cashmere thread with a worsted cashmere thread. This gives life to warm and wearable garments, that are perfect under a jacket or as something to wear indoor daily.

Another brand we’re meeting again today is Marco Pescarolo, a brand from Naples that combines traditional classic Italian tailoring style with modern casual elegance. Naples is known as a colourful, lively, exciting and diverse city, indeed one of the most fascinating cities in Italy. This is where we begin our today’s story about the Marco Pescarolo brand.

Marco Pescarolo is a brand that nurtures the Neapolitan spirit where warm, vivid tones balanced by sophisticated and sharp cuts create a different sense of fashion. The essence of Neapolitan traditional lifestyle and elegance meets contemporary casual style, resulting in a new concept of beauty. Marco Pescarolo is a unique brand that is loyal to its roots and through its brand symbol – Masca Pulcinella this brand wants to pay respect to Neapolitan culture and history, which is the key to the brand’s vision. The symbol of the Marco Pescarolo brand is a mask that belongs to the ancient figure of Pulcinella, a representation of the Neapolitan way of life.

The Marco Pescarolo man is one who successfully combines casual and business wear, as well as formal and informal wear, to exude positive energy and poise in any context, regardless of the circumstances. Marco Pescarolo is a brand that is constantly improving and as a result of one of the many researches is the line System: a new generation of fabrics, in which the exceptional qualities of natural fibers are emphasized and improved with special treatments. Application of high performance membranes, to create technologically developed garments in the perfect balance between style, comfort and functionality for men who know who they are and exactly what they want.

As I mentioned that the symbol of this brand is the Pulcinella mask, who was Pulcinella? According to some beliefs and legends from Naepolitan tradition and culture, it is believed that Pulcinella was a simple man, who tried to face all his problems with a smile. He showed his happiness with a strange dance, jumping and shouting. His daily life was unpredictable, but he was still spontaneous, simple, friendly, funny, talkative and adventurous. The same enthusiasm for life and joy is what the Marco Pescarolo brand brings to its creations every day.

The driving force behind the Marco Pescarolo brand is the power to move on and seek the next challenges. The Naepolitan spirit is proud and lively, it simply does not allow anything to hinder or slow it down. That’s why Marco Pescarolo is always looking for new challenges. Every success, every achievement is recognized and celebrated with great pleasure. But it never lasts too long, the mission of creating beauty and spreading to some new interesting and unexplored places must always be continued.

Marco Pescarolo is known for making quality trousers, which every man should have in his wardrobe! In addition to exceptional quality, small details are the secret of the beauty and irresistibility of Marco Pescarolo trousers, which many consider to be an ensemble of style and beauty. The fabrics used to make the 5-pocket pants are generally tough and durable, like the durable denims the originals were made from years ago. But what if we used lighter materials with better performance? What if we mixed the elegance and finesse of linen or cashmere trousers with the lightness and practicality of traditional casual clothing as we know it?

Marco Pescarolo represents a dynamic elegance that restlessly strives for perfection. Uniqueness is the key to looking striking. That’s why Marco Pescarolo offered the best combination of quality and performance that motivates us to constantly look for new style combinations.

Creating luxury clothing, combining the excellence of traditional craftsmanship with creativity and innovation is the goal of the constant research of Marco Pescarolo’s expert team. Each item is subjected to numerous tests with different combinations of textiles in order to obtain the perfect fabric in terms of both style and performance. Marco Pescarolo knits are made from interconnected loops of yarn.

The loop design of knit fabrics allows even non-stretch materials to condense and straighten when pulled. Knitted fabrics can also have different ways of stacking the loops together to form different textures or looks of the fabric. That’s why every creation by Marco Pescarolo is unique both in the way it was made and in its final appearance.

In the world of Marco Pescarolo, there are countless choices of materials and possibilities: cashmere, wool, cotton, jersey, denim… These are just some of the materials this exceptional brand uses in its creations. Providing the best garment treated with avant-garde technologies to be wrinkle-free and not pilling or peeling is the primary goal of the Marco Pescarolo brand.

The elegance presented by the Marco Pescarolo fashion house can be worn on any occasion. Based on the appeal of precious details and the expert selection of materials, the Marco Pescarolo brand is characterized by its uniqueness that represents the “bespoke tailoring” mindset. The Italian touch is a must: all raw materials, accessories, and even production and realization bear the Italian brand. Reinterpreting the Italian tradition, the brand is able to express a new concept of fashion, intended for men who want to keep the character of their elegance exclusive. A combined synthesis of modernity and clothing perfection, a balance of style that is noticed every time you wear Marco Pescarolo clothes.

In today’s post you had the opportunity to see the Marco Pescarolo short coat which is made of suede leather and knitwear in a combination of wool – cashmere and classic trousers which are part of the latest Marco Pescarolo Fall – Winter 2022/23 collection.

André Maurice: An Italian Fashion Story inspired by Dreams and Genius Loci…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great! I believe that you are ready for a new fashion adventure and a new dose of elegant fashion that you are used to seeing on the Mr.M blog. The first outfit post of this season was in the spirit of everyday sporty elegance, but today I’m taking you on the well-known paths of elegance and refinement and I’m introducing you to a new Italian brand which I am sure will take your breath away with their iconic designs.

At the very beginning of today’s fashion adventure, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Invest Moldova Agency and the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Moldova for the kind invitation and the incredible experience to get to know the Moldovan culture and customs better. It is a great honor and pleasure that I had the opportunity to take pictures for my first fashion stories this season on the streets of Chisinau and other famous localities in this wonderful small country with a big heart in Eastern Europe!

We all know that Italy is the cradle of fashion and style, there is no person who does not like the touch of quality cashmere during the cold autumn and winter period, that’s why today I present to you an Italian brand that celebrated its century of existence last year, which you must admit is a big thing for a fashion brand .

What makes a fashion brand? Is it the eternal search for inspiration, which everyone desperately needs in the fashion industry to stay at the top? Is it the art of creating and creating a new fashion culture? Is it respecting and maintaining tradition and heritage? The answers to all these and many other questions were found by an Italian brand that you will have the opportunity to meet today on the Mr.M blog – André Maurice.

This is not a story about a brand, this is a story about the pride and gratitude that underpins this brand and its given success. Everything that is good has its beginning, these are the roots that we are proud of and that inspire us to move on. The first fashion pages of the André Maurice story are written by Mrs. Giulia Allario in Scagliotti, who started the artisan production of knitwear in her house in Roncaglia, on the hills of Monferrato, exactly a century ago.

It’s not an ordinary year, it’s a historical point, because in 1921 the great Italian crisis begins due to the post-war situation, where unemployment increased several times compared to previous years and the consumer market was very unstable due to the liquidity crisis among the population. Mrs. Allario was a courageous woman with vision and good intuition as she undertook good entrepreneurial activities to launch her dream.

In the pictures that you will have the opportunity to see in today’s post on the sweater, you will see 2 words that are very important for this brand and that marked the existence of this unusual Italian knitwear brand – Genius Loci.

What does this term mean and why are these two words important to this brand? Roots that are well anchored in the territory where we were born and now live, a huge inspiration arises that is perfectly identified with the concept of Genius Loci, which in translation means “spirit of the place”. Like the flow of a great river, which always and inexorably reaches the sea in a slow and often imperceptible course, Genius Loci penetrates the soul of man with changing nuances throughout his existence, shaping his thoughts, behaviors and aspirations.

It is precisely because of all this that many people who have bought an André Maurice piece of clothing realize that they have received more than a piece of ordinary fashion item, but have the opportunity to wear an exclusive and unrepeatable valuable gift of knowledge. The story of this brand is unique because with the influence of light, colors, smells, atmosphere, shapes and traditions of the territory of origin – Monferrato – combined with the constant desire to discover and face the whole world, we get a unique fashion story that has been passed down from generation to generation for 4 generations.

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

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

An accessory that becomes recognizable may be a small, intimate and personal element, but it is extremely important to complete the perfect overall image of the brand – a detail. Inspiration arising from detail cannot be built and finds its full legitimacy only in a state of mind that succeeds in raising it to the point success. A detail, so small and tiny, can stimulate the senses, impose a new, inevitable and a fascinating new way of changing the perspective of seeing things. Details can change the whole picture, and that’s why André Maurice works tirelessly every day to bring the perfection of his creation to the perfection of his creations for his consumers. By buying André Maurice clothing, you’re not just buying a product, you’re becoming a member of a large fashion family with a long tradition.

The André Maurice brand carefully selects unique raw materials that carry with them a long tradition and have worldwide recognition for their quality, finesse and the prestige that accompanies it. The inspiration for cashmere begins far away, in the magical highlands of far Mongolia, where natural evolution has led cashmere goats to protect themselves from the harshness of the climate by creating two layers of fur – a superficial one, with thicker and stiffer hair, and one layer closer to the body, composed of short, thin and a very warm center, which is called a “quilt”.

In the spring, during moulting, the shepherds comb the Hircus goats, extracting the most precious hair and this is just the beginning of obtaining a precious André Maurice garment that, with proper care and maintenance, you can wear for years.

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

In today’s post, you have the opportunity to see the André Maurice camel color coat, which is made of the finest 100% cashmere, and the “Genius Loci” sweater in lovely shades of beige and camel colours.

If you want to stay updated and find out what all the news about latest collections of luxury Italian knitwear brand André Maurice has in its offer this season for dear ladies and gentlemen, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram. Also you can visit their Online Shop and check out their amazing fashion items!

There is no person in the world who can hide a joy when feels the smell of new Italian leather. Today we reunite again with the Italian family-owned glove workshop Restelli Guanti, a place where art, tradition and the beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of Italian style and way of life. Making gloves is not only a job but also a true art. After 100 years, passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation! Rafaela Restelli has fully embraced the challenges of a new fashion era where the market and way of selling has changed with a deep respect and belief in tradition and love for masterpieces that last!

In today’s post, you had the opportunity to see Restelli gloves made of special peccary leather. These luxurious leather gloves are made of the highest quality leather. The lining of these gloves is made of cashmere. It got a little cold during my visit to Moldova, so I decided to protect my hands better and walk around in my unusual cognac-colored gloves, which were extremely warm and a real fashion accessory for this unexpected chill in Chisinau.

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

One Fashionable Letter from Heart of Lithuania: From Vilnius with Love!

Dear my fashionistas and travelers, welcome to the new fashion adventure on Mr.M blog! I know you love my travel stories, so despite the bad weather in the Lithuanian capital, I tried to make at least one fashion story.

Today we will talk more about fashion, but if by any chance you want to remember the travelogue from Vilnius, the heart of Lithuania, you can read travelogues about this unusual city at the following links:

  1. Letters from Lithuania: Vilnius, the Pearl of the Baltic you will love!
  2. Letters from Lithuania: Vilnius, a City of Rich History and Fairy-tale Architecture…

I must be honest that I looked at the weather forecast several times before the trip to Lithuania, but I sincerely hoped that the weather would improve at least at some point during my stay in the heart of Lithuania, but all hopes sank with rain that did not stop falling… The highlight of this trip is that I “caught” a period of less than an hour to take pictures of my outfit.

Today’s outfit will be a combination of new pieces and some old ones that were dear to you and loved on the blog, so I hope we will remind you of some interesting brands that you liked to see on the Mr.M blog.

Since the weather in Lithuania was more similar to autumn – early winter in Germany, I decided it was safer to bring a winter jacket. Luckily, I wasn’t wrong, as you can see I also wore gloves, which you can notice how spring in the Baltics can be quite different than we can expect during the month of April…

As you know in fashion industry, winter jackets were big, quite bulky and heavy, while today it is completely different. Today, the mirror is of real quality when the jacket is light as a feather, and extremely warm and suitable for all winter conditions. So it is with my jacket – the parka I got from my friends from Paul&Shark. This is its 3rd season and I really have to praise this incredible jacket! We visited the coldest parts of the world together, including temperatures that went down to minus 25 in beautiful, but extremely cold St. Petersburg. We survived various rains and snows, but here we are still hanging out.

The new technologies of the Fill Power 700 and 900 from the Paul & Shark fashion house provide incredible comfort with excellent thermal properties, which allows the jacket to help you withstand even the lowest temperatures. Filling strength 700 and 900 denote the insulation strength by determining its weight-to-strength ratio: it is considered one of the best available jackets on the market, thanks to its high degree of thermal insulation compared to its size. Feathers create “small pockets of air” that create a thermal barrier, ensuring maximum protection.

Since I receive several messages and emails on a weekly basis with the questions: “Marko, do you really keep all these things and do you really wear them?”, I think you got my answer in today’s post. ?

There is no person in the world who can hide his joy when he feel the new Italian leather. Today we will meet again the Italian family workshop for handmade Restelli gloves, a place where the art, tradition and beauty of handicrafts meet every day, which is the true definition of the Italian style and way of life. Making gloves is not only a job but also a real art. After 100 years, passion, emotions, tradition and knowledge have been passed on to the third generation!

The lining of these gloves is made of cashmere. For my visit to Vilnius, I decided to take a walk in my navy blue gloves, which were extremely warm and a real fashion accessory for this unexpected “winter spring” in the Baltics!

Restelli gloves are not valued with money, but with tradition and history full of love and patience that are priceless.

One of the brands that has recognized positive energy and love for adventures and unusual journeys is the Swiss watch brand Certina. We have already met with this brand during the winter season on the Mr.M blog and if you are interested to know why this brand is so special and unique, read the story at this link.

Certina watches are known for their precision, reliability and sporty character. The sports watch brand has built an international reputation for quality Swiss workmanship, during its long history, which is more than 130 years long. Certina is a symbol of durability and longevity, which is why the mascot of the turtle armor brand symbolizes robustness and longevity – characteristics that all Certina watches, without exception. Therefore, it is no wonder that turtle armor has been a symbol of the brand since the 1960s. Today, the distinctive outline can still be found on almost every Certina watch, as well as on the brand logo. It evokes the exceptional endurance that characterizes every Certina watch.

Today, after 60 years, Certina DS Jubile adorns my hand. It is an unusual feeling when one such brand with unique watch designs is my new partner in my adventures. The watch you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is the DS Jubile model, which exists in two versions, the basic one with a steel bracelet and the other with a leather bracelet. This watch combines precious materials with maximum precision.

This elegant men’s watch is equipped with an 18K yellow gold frame. It is powered by an innovative PrecidriveTM quartz movement, whose precision and reliability are confirmed by COSC. The watch has a date display. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and stainless steel case make this watch durable and robust: the watch can withstand water pressures up to 10 ATM. Illuminated hands contrast with the background and thus always provide the best readability. The stainless steel bracelet, which is attached to the wrist together with the button, makes this model from Certina impressive!

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog! As we all know, this month was marked by unstable and changeable weather, which affected all of us to wait a bit with the postponement of winter clothes. Due to the sudden change of weather, we always have a problem with choosing the right footwear, so I decided to help you and in this way answer people who sent me questions via messages on social networks and numerous emails to dispel all doubts.

Today we will meet some new brands and remind some old friends of Mr.M blog who share the same values and vision.

I will start today’s post with an interesting story about footwear. Good choice of footwear during the cold period, especially during these changing weather conditions is extremely important because it is first important that footwear be comfortable, high quality and durable due to the possibility of sudden spring rains that are possible during the spring season, but this year we made sure that snow can fall in April.

Today on Mr.M blog you have the opportunity to meet one Italian footwear brand that is at the very top in the fashion world – Alberto Fasciani. This famous Italian brand knows exactly what it represents and stands behind its exceptional master pieces artwork and top quality.

This trademark signifies the quality, passion and originality of the Italian industry, which are certainly the words that describe this unique Italian footwear brand. Alberto Fasciani creates shoes and boots that are known around the world. Mr. Alberto Fasciani is guided exclusively by one motto, which caught my attention: “Whoever wears my footwear must feel as if it belongs to him from the very first time, as if he spent his whole life with it.” This emphasizes the essence of the work of Alberto Fasciani, whose main goal is to create comfortable and high quality shoes for the most picky men with refined fashion taste who know what they want to wear on their feet.

Today we will see again our old friends on Mr.M blog such as Woolrich, which you have opportunity to meet during last winter season in some of my previous fashion stories. Woolrich is a brand that was founded back in 1830 in the United States of America (USA) in the state of Pennsylvania. The basic idea of the brand was to equip people who cultivate an immense passion for nature, who do not see natural elements as a kind of obstacle, but as a life mover. One of the founders of the brand – John Rich once said: “Nature tests and inspires us equally, we are here to encourage our own desire for entertainment and learning about the world around us and of course about ourselves.”

Woolrich is a brand with a long history that has been producing sportswear and outerwear for more than 190 years. This brand is the oldest American outerwear brand. During his first decade of existence, Woolrich mainly created clothes for farmers and wood processors who had to work in extreme climatic conditions. In addition to them, Woolrich also supplied soldiers during the Civil War with uniforms and blankets that were made from the warmest wool in true American style. True to its heritage, the Woolrich brand is still one of the largest manufacturers when it comes to sportswear and outerwear.

Today, while writing this post, I was thinking about which three words could describe this amazing brand, and I think I came up with the right ones, which are: comfort, durability, resilience combined with simplicity and innovation. This brand nurtures a sporty, but at the same time elegant style that creates various collections every season. Special compositions of natural and artificial fibers create great pieces that are perfect for times when the outside temperatures are low and we need something to keep us warm. A timeless piece in the Woolrich collection is the Arctic Park, first introduced in 1972, designed to withstand the most extreme temperatures, available with or without a fur collar.

In today’s outfit post you have the opportunity to see the unique Woolrich luxury Polar parka which is made of special Italian eco wool and Loro Piana fabric. This parka is a unique and iconic winter piece that you should have in your wardrobe. This parka proves top expertise in creating practical pieces that exude modern appeal. Following the example of the legendary Arctic Park, this park you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is made of exclusive eco-wool Blacksheep, which is specially treated for wind and water resistant finishes produced by the Italian luxury brand Loro Piana.

Fantastic composition of duck down, spacious hood and practical pockets provide exceptional comfort and convenience while going out during the cold winter months. It is important to note that the lining of the pockets of this park is made of a special material that has been treated with Polygiene ViralOff® technology, which will have to destroy over 99% of microbes in a period of two hours.

If you want to be updated what new products Woolrich is preparing for us this fashion season, follow them on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind and enjoy the nature, 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 fully vaccinated (2 vaccine doses or 3rd booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. If you are going to spend some nice time in European cities, I would ask you to respect and follow the local laws related to the health care of the local community.

Armand Nicolet: Iconic Swiss Watch Brand with Special Italian Taste and Design…

Dear my fashionistas, welcome to another new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. We have to admit that this year, April surprised us quite a bit with an unexpected “cold wave”, so even some parts of Europe were covered with a “white cover”. That’s why I used the cold days to enjoy the winter magic and show you some new fashion novelties!

You all know how much I love watches and that I always try to show you some interesting brands of watches. Today we will learn something new about one luxury Swiss brand that makes unusual watches – Armand Nicolet.

Mr. Armand Nicolet was born in the town of Tramelan, a small town located in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. As the son of a celebrated watchmaker, he followed in his father’s footsteps and built his own small watch studio called the Atelier d’Horlogerie, to create his masterpiece in 1902. Unfortunately, in 1939, Mr. Armand Nicolet dies and his son Willy continues the family business.

During the first half of the 20th century, Tramelan became the third pole of the Swiss watch industry. During this period, Nicolet SA specialized in refining complicated mechanical movements for other well-known Swiss brands and specialized in the production of Venus movements whose components were composed of various sophisticated calibres.

Mr. Willy Nicolet was old and unfortunately did not have direct descendants to continue the family business, but fate had a second plan… Meeting Mr. Rolando Braga in 1987, a famous Italian entrepreneur and passionate lover of watches, who has been active in horology circles for more than 20 years , realized that he had found the ideal person to continue this brand success story with a new vision and mission.

Mr. Braga aims to reveal to the world buried treasures like the Armand Nicolet brand and show all the possibilities and creative abilities of the expert team behind this amazing brand. After several years spent reorganizing the brand, in 2000 the Armand Nicolet brand was officially introduced to the market at the Basel Fair and immediately gained worldwide popularity and recorded incredible success.

This model of ski gloves was presented for the first time in burgundy, which I must admit is an unusual feature for ski gloves, which makes it a great luxury accessory for a real fashion winter!

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered the beauty of “unexpected fashionable spring- winter” April with fashion shopping platform Mytheresa Man and iconic Swiss watch brand Armand Nicolet and I hope you got the inspiration for your perfect outfit! We will continue our fashion adventures on the Mr.M blog soon! 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 strain of Coronavirus in almost all Asian, 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 nature, 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 fully vaccinated (2 vaccine doses or 3rd booster dose) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. If you are going to spend some nice time in European cities, I would ask you to respect and follow the local laws related to the health care of the local community.

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, stay tuned!

With Love from Germany,
Mr.M
