Fashion Diary: November, the month of fashion and new ideas…

My dear fashionistas welcome to another fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. I sincerely hope you are well, healthy and safe surrounded by loved ones. This year has certainly marked our lives and we will surely remember it after the pandemic and the world crisis. I don’t think there is an industry that hasn’t felt some kind of crisis, so it is in the fashion industry, which is a big challenge for fashion brands and designers as well.

During the pandemic, the fashion industry makes great efforts to maintain a perfect balance of production and concentration of purchasing power. The current volume of production may have been reduced, but believe me, the love for fashion has remained absolutely has not changed at all.

How will I remember Autumn – Winter 2020? Honestly, I am happiest that, thank God, I am healthy and that I had the opportunity to share my love for fashion with my readers. I regularly receive emails and messages on social networks from my dear readers with similar question, and that is: “When will your new travelogues start?”.

I really can’t honestly give you the answer to that question because I really don’t know how the health situation will unfold and how it will affect travel in the future. Believe me, that famous thought passes through my mind at least once every day: “When will everything return to the old like before as used to be?”. It is no longer a problem with borders and the fact that there is no travel, but this “world quarantine” and constant changes in the law have begun to affect people’s mental health.

When I wonder why I am not able to go somewhere, I sincerely thank God after a few seconds that I am healthy and that I have the opportunity to rest and relax with my family in one place. Travel is a wonderful thing and for me it will always be a kind of non-formal education, but health and family will always be in the first place for me and it is something that has no price.

In today’s post, we’re hanging out again with my favorite fashion piece this season, I believe you’ve all remembered his name so far – Morris. To be honest, I don’t know which fashion piece I liked and repeated on the blog during one season, but with this jacket it’s different.

If you remember that special story of mine from the first fashion post about the Italian brand from Verona, the MooRER brand will remember how I wrote that this jacket fulfilled my unfulfilled dreams from Prague from a couple of years ago. Maybe that’s exactly why I’ve worn this jacket so many times, but I promise I’ll change soon! Thank you for your understanding! 🙂

MooRER is an Italian brand that won my heart in a short time and I am glad that we managed to find each other during this pandemic and make a wonderful and interesting collaboration.

Another Italian brand that you had the opportunity to meet last week on my blog, which is known for handmade real small leather art masterpieces, is the Restelli Guanti gloves factory.

This week, I present you another model of gloves from this interesting family brand that has passed on its love for gloves and share for generations. I extremely appreciate and respect brands with this tradition that have survived on the market for years, and I am always glad when I manage to help them at least a little, especially in these difficult times.

In the fashion world, every piece has its own unique story, which really provides a special charm. These gloves are made of a perfect combination of cashmere and soft deerskin. Ideal for any fashion combination, whether you are getting ready for work or a business meeting or you may have decided to spend a day in a relaxed walk, these gloves are ideal for the cold days that follow us during autumn and winter.

You haven’t been able to see the roll neck sweater and jeans on the blog so far because I jealously kept it for colder days and finally put on my new refined pieces of wool and cashmere with which these lower temperatures passed me more easily than in previous years.

The roll neck sweater you can see in today’s post came to my wardrobe from faraway Scotland made by the skilled hands of a team from the Johnstons of Elgin brand who made it true for me to spend this winter in trend and to spend my days in Berlin comfortably, even with an open jacket.

Believe me, since I always have problems with regulating my body temperature, I have been buttoned up to my throat in the winter for years, and I always have a feeling of cold, while other people can only wear a sweater, I will always have a jacket over. This year I have to admit I gave up a bit so I walked around with an open jacket, which may be a small step for humanity, but too big not to say a giant step for one Marko!

OUTFIT

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

News for all of you, since I regularly get questions, do I have a discount code, I asked Johnstons of Elgin and they came out with my own personal code “MT10” you have a special 10% discount on the entire offer of Johnstons of Elgin products. You get a discount, I don’t have any kind of commission, I tried to do that for all my readers to get a discount on the entire collection of this Scottish brand and to enjoy the beauty of wool and cashmere this season.

Jacket: MooRER

Roll Neck Sweater: Johnstons of Elgin

Gloves: Restelli

Trousers: Loro Piana

Sneakers: MooRER

MooRER and Johnstons of Elgin are brands 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.

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 one day 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 Autumn charm of Berlin. 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!

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

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!
