Limitato: Bright Colors Ennoble and Inspire Your World…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure. Today we will continue our story about one unusual Swedish fashion brand that managed to connect the beauty of fine art and fashion in a special and specific way, resulting in unusual collections of wearable fine art, meet Limitato.

Limitato was founded in Sweden by two business management students, Emrik Olausson and Gustav Peterson, with the ambition to introduce a refined rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic and give Scandinavia its first stylish menswear brand within the advanced contemporary segment. Gustav and Emrik inherited a passion for art from their families. They need art to make their surroundings energetic, eclectic and to inspire creativity. Through partnerships with emerging artists, the brand intends to communicate and enhance its community seasonally. The language used by this brand to communicate with customers is mature, elegant, sophisticated, creative and lively.

Limitato is a brand that operates at the crossroads of culture, art and fashion, connecting creative freedom and expression through numerous collaborations with artists. The brand is closely specialized in creating wearable works of art, but not the ones you imagine in a museum but works that contain ubiquitous cultural phenomena that are actual at this moment. The Limitato brand nurtures a vision of unique visual art to iconic moments in music history, some of the prints come from famous artists, photographers or historical archives.

The brand name Limitato is inspired by the concept of “limited edition” and aptly sums up the brand’s unique concept, which is that a garment can become a kind of wearable fine art. By creating garments with high-quality prints of graphic and photographic art, the Limitato team aims to make art more accessible while also creating some seriously urban and quirky clothing with a unique and distinct aesthetic.

The great success of the Pitti Uomo platform helped launch the Limitato brand onto the international fashion scene. Over the course of one season, Limitato brand products went from being stocked in five stores to 150, and by the time the Spring/Summer 2018 collection was released, Limitato had become a true fashion icon. The brand works exclusively with a range of artists and photographers, whose work ranges from iconic portraits to abstract graphic art. Artists do not need to be well-known, the most important thing they must possess is authenticity.

BOMBERG is an independent Swiss watch brand that has become very popular in a short time due to its unusual watches that have a special design and character that is not for everyone. The BOMBERG brand name itself came naturally, and the “Berg” element is a sign for the famous mountain. If you identify as a rebellious soul and want to escape from the ordinary by living according to your own desires, then these watches are the ideal choice for you!

BOMBERG embraces the free and rebellious spirit of millions of people around the world who dare to be different and create their own unusual rules of life and are brave enough to freely manage their lives and follow their dreams. With a maverick and emancipated spirit, BOMBERG moves away from the roots of traditional industry and creates superior products. The BOMBERG community is represented by people who resolutely reject the status quo and like to show it with their lifestyle. The creations you will discover in the BOMBERG world embody all these values and more, so let yourself be carried away by the extraordinary concepts and designs of this unusual Swiss watch brand. BOMBERG watches are here to take you on a new enchanting journey of life.

BOMBERG watches nurture three core values on which this exceptional watch brand rests: Bold, Innovation and Disruptive. Bold and different watches, making a powerful statement that sets them apart from the crowd. On the other hand, innovation and a patented creation designed “in-house” to transform a wristwatch into an amazing pocket watch. BOMBERG watches are the ones that disrupt and change the world for the better because by canceling the classic rules of watchmaking, it is the courage that gives you strength and energy to create unusual timepieces with innovative and unique designs and details like BOMBERG watches.

BOMBERG breaks away from the beaten path of traditional watchmaking, creating watches for people who are cool, creative and confident, all over the world in Latin America, USA, Asia and Europe. A Swiss brand, independent, nimble, fast based in Neuchâtel, BOMBERG follows its path with strong references to the world of tattoos, symbols and icons – The Tattoo. Yes, you read that right, the brand has been close to him since 2012. The bold and fearless team that makes up the BOMBERG brand stronger. Today, claiming its new positioning and advertising campaigns: #TattooYourDesire. Different trends around the world, different communities, BOMBERG tells their stories, highlights their creativity, affirms their personality.

As I mentioned a little while ago, the brand name BOMBERG arose naturally, the element “Berg” is a sign for this famous mountain. Going off the beaten path, Rick De La Croix wanted to cross the boundaries set by tradition and all that convention dictates. For him, one must dare to show one’s true face, to affirm one’s style with conviction, even if one crosses the sacred boundaries of “restraint”.

Proud to be Swiss, proud of the innovation and expertise his country brings to the world, his fondest desire is to discover and promote an aspect of the Swiss character that is too often hidden: bold, independent, sexy, seductive, avant-garde, voluntary, but always respecting tradition. Therefore, the development of his brand went in two directions: towards technical innovations and towards topics that are close to his heart. This is how Rick De La Croix managed to create watches with the “Swiss Made” philosophy in their DNA, adding accessories to transform them into pendants or table clocks, using a patented system of his own design.

In today’s fashion story, I will present you the “Automatic Mariachi Skull” model from the “BB-01 AUTOMATIC” collection. This unique watch from the limited collection is dedicated to the spirit of the mariachi, the famous Mexican musical style and group performance with horns, stringed instruments, high vocals, sombreros and elegant uniforms. The BOMBERG Mariachi wristwatch, themed in brown, features a stylized skull, flower eyes and a cross on the forehead. The sides of the watch case are decorated with lovely mariachi decorations, a detailed “touch of class” that will impress the people around you. The crown, placed at 2 o’clock, has a hint of brown, and the bracelet is made of calf leather with mariachi motifs embossed on it.

Technical information about the watch:

Case diameter: 43 mm
Case Material: Stainless steel
Bracelet material: Brown leather bracelet with embossed mariachi motifs.

Mechanism: Automatic
Movement type: Sellita SW200 with a power reserve of 38 hours
Additional Features: 3 hands with applied Super-Luminova® on the indexes. Date window at 6 o’clock. Sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating. Water resistance up to 50 m.

Zegna is an Italian luxury fashion house. It was founded by Ermenegildo Zegna in 1910 in Trivero, Biella in the Piedmont region of northern Italy.

I got these Zegna sneakers from my dear friends MYTHERESA MEN, the luxury shopping platform. It is a model of My Claudio low-top sneakers made of leather and material details in a combination of brown and black. These shoes are from the spring-summer collection, but because of the palette of brown and black shades, I think they can also fit nicely with warm autumn tones.

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.

Armand Nicolet is one of the few independent watch brands that is still active in the territory of Bern and in Tramelan itself, known for its traditional watchmaking. The company has adopted the latest methods of work, while respecting the oldest watchmaking tradition. The entire process of creating and manufacturing Armand Nicolet watches takes place within the company from creative vision, design and production process to quality control. This independent method of production provides an unrivaled guarantee of quality. The company guarantees a perfect product, a watch that every satisfied customer will proudly wear on their wrist.

What is the secret of exceptional quality? The Armand Nicolet production center is also a watch repair service center. In this way, unchanged quality is ensured because all repairs are entrusted to a professional team that works exclusively with original spare parts. This procedure and the internal service system preserve knowledge and all the secrets of Armand Nicolet watchmaking remain within the walls of the company.

Thanks to this knowledge, today Armand Nicolet is one of the few independent watch brands that are still active in the market. When you buy an Armand Nicolet watch, you get a unique quality that meets all the criteria.

All Armand Nicolet watches are divided into two collections: Watch collections with Original Historical Movements (O.H.M Series) and Contemporary watch collections.

The collection of watches with Original Historical Movements is a series of watches that contain original historical movements from the 1950s and 1960s that have been preserved from oblivion and specially set in the Armand Nicolet atelier. These series are produced only in limited series because the amount of these precious watches is determined by the amount of original historical mechanisms that are still available. Armand Nicolet team of professional watchmakers manually renew and reassemble each of these unique pieces. These precious mechanisms are the result of many years of expertise, dedication and love for the fine arts of creating watches.

On the other hand, we have Armand Nicolet Contemporary collections of watches that represent the lines of the complete range of men’s and women’s mechanical watches. All Armand Nicolet watches have the DNA of the prestigious most sophisticated Swiss watchmaker, but have been reinterpreted by their skilled and creative Italian designers.

In today’s blog post, I present you a watch from the latest MM2 collection with a mechanical automatic mechanism with chronographic functions.

My today’s outfit: ski velvet jacket, jeans, turtleneck sweater and high-top sneakers was taken care of by the luxury German shopping platform Mytheresa Man. If you want to find interesting fashion pieces and special footwear collections you can find it on the Mytheresa online shopping platform where all fashion lovers can find something for themselves!

This time my choice was the Versace unusual burgundy velvet ski jacket that I combined with Brunello Cucinelli cashmere turtleneck sweater and jeans. I complemented this outfit with the legendary Christian Louboutin Louis Strauss High-Top black sneakers handmade from Swarovski crystals. These shoes have been on my bucket-list for a long time and I can’t believe they are finally in my wardrobe!

There is no person in the world who cannot hide the joy when you feel the smell of the new Italian leather. Today, we are once again hanging out with 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 in general.

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! Raffaella 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 a love for lasting masterpieces!

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

In today’s post, you had the opportunity to see Restelli Ski Gloves made of special waterproof deerskin. These luxury ski gloves have a special zipper with a logo. You can choose a set of gloves from a large selection of fur and materials. 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!

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!
