Massimo Dutti Opens at Bangsar Village 2

After years of waiting and expecting, Spanish premium brand Massimo Dutti has finally made its way here in our fair shores.

Known for its high quality clothing for men, women and children, the Spanish brand opened its maiden Malaysian store at the newly opened Bangsar Village 2.

Founded in 1985, the Barcelona-based company started out as a menswear brand until in 1991, when Spanish clothing giant Inditex acquired 65% of the company shares.

Not only the product range has
been diversified into womenswear, kids clothings and even perfumes for both gender, Massimo Dutti aslo has introduced its first bespoke tailoring service to selected stores around the world.

There's also a collection dedicated to homewear called Soft Collection that comprises of cardigan and sweaters for men and women made from soft fabric that suitable for lounging while chilling out on a weekend at the very comfort of your own home.

This season, Massimo Dutti features five different styles and looks for its men and women collection. For menswear, the five styles that a Massimo Dutti covets this season are known as Newport, Capri, Biarritz, Safari and Tailoring. For Newport, the style focuses on the urban concept without having to to go through a rigidity of traditional suiting. Indulge the style with cashmere, silk and wool in purple, blue and billiard green.

If you want a freer, vintage and sportier look, then Capri is the style that is made just for you. Activewear dominates the collection in the hues of violet, turquoise, and green mixed with khaki, ocher and beige to create a distinct colour story.

For Biarritz, summer club is the inspiration and stands out from the rest with shirts made with elaborate structures. Safari fuses two different themes - the safari culture and the tendency for luxury in desert-themed colors. Last but not least, Massimo Dutti tailoring has been adjusted to accomodate groundbreaking new weaves and texture.

Now moving to the womenswear collection, the five styles or look for the season are Strict bridge, a luxury-inspired collection that is a continuation to the Winter trend with a slight Spring-like fabrics.

Easy combines the taste of 40's and 50's with feminine volume and emphasizes on waistbands with a variety of belts. Key looks of the season includes pleated skirt, balloon sleeved blouses, cottage style jackets and wide-legged trousers made from tafetta and cotton poplin with prints in the hues of white, black and gray with dark blue.

If you are in love with the 60's, then Naif is the perfect look for you. Dominating the collection are low-waisted items, skirts with hem above the knees, and baby doll mini dresses in tweed, satin, organza with geometric prints.

For Bamboo, the 50's vibe continues with high-waisted trousers and brightly-colored patterns. Key looks within the collection includes jodhpurs, overcoats and belted dresses. Last but not least, sophisticated Italian-styled suits in classic colors are a must for a Massimo Dutti woman everywhere.
