Compared to last year's Mediterranean-inspired collection, Massimo Dutti adopts an audacious approach, choosing to imbue new striking colours into your wardrobe. Outstanding pieces from it's latest portfolio will see you through the sunny days, perfect for the climate in Asia (and lifting spirits in face of the economic gloom).
Judging from the Spanish brand’s look book, we can tell that these minimalistic-yet-impactful pieces are meant to be head-turners. Think vibrant hues of red, electric blue and zesty orange. Let's not forget those stunning black-white contrasts.
Intense bold prints and intricate floral designs add a feminine touch to these timeless pieces. Knitwear in luxurious fabrics and rich colours provide a sense of solidity, while emblazoned stripes comes across as playful, light-hearted.
Despite starting off as a brand for males, Massimo Dutti's women's collection is equally covetable. Well-suited for women of all shapes, the bold collars of the jackets and mandarin-collared shirt attracts attention to the detail of the design. The modern female with a strong character will find this series particularly alluring.
Embracing the latest fashion trends, Massimo Dutti includes Peter Pan collars in several of the designs. It successfully creates a mix of casual yet graceful dresses, shirts, jackets and even skirts. The result is a glam chic wardrobe, one that doesn’t quite run out of style as quickly, thanks to cleverly placed details that perfectly capture the look of an elegant woman.
To evoke the Parisian panache and the fashionable ‘baby doll’ look, invest in Massimo Dutti's two-tone dresses or that white-top-and-adorable-pink-pants getup. Be it for a weekend out with the girlfriends, or ‘casual Fridays’ at work, the traditional yet romantic lace skirts and breezy tops will bring out your sweetest and most tranquil side.
Other items in the spring/summer collection also includes a whole range of accessories to match your newly revamped wardrobe (it's incomplete without trinkets!), such as patent leather heeled sandals, oxford shoes, rings, bracelets, and wallets. The only thing you need to decide on is your personal style.
Season after season, Massimo Dutti never fails to dress the males up. After all, it used to be an exclusively male-only brand. This spring/summer is no exception. Fronted by American model Ryan Burns, we're reminded not to ditch class for comfort, even if it means wearing a blazer in this relentless heat -- they're made of comfortable, lightweight fabric.
If you haven't already discovered the world of cardigans, Massimo Dutti's come in a myriad of styles and colours. With so many options, you have the perfect formula -- amalgamating basic shirts and pants in light colours for that natural charm. To enhance colours, we would rather go with that pair of brick red pants.
We noticed the how Massimo Dutti pays attention to details. Love it or hate it, that patch on the elbows of jackets and jerseys brings a new style to mundane designs. Bask in the spring of life with that borsalino (which just means wide-brimmed felt hat).
Massimo Dutti's briefcases, travel bags and totes come in a few colours, including beige with leather trim. If you prefer accessorising your outfit, handkercheifs and scarves complete the look with spring and floral prints on blue or lively orange.
As always, its collections never fail to dress men up to look dashing and dazzling, whether they’re travelling from office to the gym, heading to the bar for some booze, or on a date. Besides the extensive range of bags, belts, hats and watches, we were drawn to the shoe collection that had something suitable (and smart) for any occasion.
