Dear my fashionistas, welcome to the new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today’s summer story will be dedicated to the Italian brand Tod’s, which we had the opportunity to get to know better in one of the previous blog posts.
A brand considered the top of Italian design, Tod’s embraces a lifestyle that has always been an association for timeless elegance with superior quality. A way of life that is connected with the concept of the Italian way of life, good taste and “savoir vivre” – the art of living life.
Tod’s is synonymous worldwide for unmistakable elegance and refined style, the brand has for years created true style icons of contemporary luxury through its collections of footwear and leather goods for men and women. Each product is made using traditional and modern techniques of top Italian craftsmanship, creating exceptional items that are the subject of “fashion lust” of all fashion lovers from all over the world.
Tod’s fashion group is known for its national and international socially responsible development sustainability projects. One of the most famous projects is “Tod’s for Colosseum” – the restoration of the Colosseum, a symbol of Italian history.
The intervention plan for the reconstruction of the Colosseum is a project commissioned by the delegate commissioner for archeological sites of Rome and Ostia Antica, in cooperation with the Special Group for the Protection of the Colosseum and the Archaeological Area of Rome, and implemented thanks to the selfless support of Tod’s group.
The first phase of works was completed and included the renovation of the northern and southern facades, with an area of about 13,300 square meters, and the replacement of the arch closing system with the construction of new gates.
The renovation plan will continue with the renovation of the Colosseum basement, standardization and implementation of the system and the construction of a service center that allows additional activities to support visitors to this cultural monument.
The second phase of work, which began in December 2018, under the leadership of the new autonomous institute Parco Archeologico del Colosseo, included the hypogea area, a “monument within a monument” a kind of amphitheater located below the arena and in ancient times invisible to spectators . More than 80 people took part in the restoration work, including archaeologists, restorers, architects, engineers and other experts.
At the end of the works, a promenade 160 meters long was set up, accessible to all visitors, which gave visitors the opportunity to see the hitherto unexplored part of the Colosseum, which was not feasible before.
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.
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.
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.
This silk T-shirt you have the opportunity to see in today’s post is a part of the new summer collection of the Italian fashion house SVEVO Parma, a family brand that you had the opportunity to meet on my blog through summer fashion stories.
This incredible fashion story began in Bari, when Mr. Nicola Somma opened a chain of knitwear stores for men and women, without any kind of knowledge that he started the “fashion wheel” of an Italian company that still focuses on the values of quality and authenticity.
In 1955, his son Mario Somma founded the first SVEVO knitwear factory for the production of high-quality knitwear, which was made by professional local craftsmen. Thus, from the center of Puglia, a country rich in resources and resourcefulness, threads of sophistication and excellent craftsmanship are developed, destined to weave the future of the company.
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.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered the beauty and splendor of summer season together! See you soon during August and continue our fashion story about the Italian brand Tod’s on the Mr.M blog! How did you like my outfit today?
I really tried to prepare today’s post 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 variant of Corona virus – Lambda 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 and enjoy the charms of summer, 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 vaccinated (both doses of the vaccine) you need to wear a mask for your own safety. The summer vacation season has begun and many of you is spending vacation at sea, so I would ask you to respect local COVID-19 laws related to community health.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or a message for me, you can write to me below in the comments. Of course, as always, you can contact me via email or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. I’ll see you soon!
With love from Berlin,
