WINTER BASICS: MASSIMO DUTTI WOMEN LOOKBOOK

Did you know that Massimo Dutti is Zara’s sister company? They both belong to Inditex which also owns retail chains Bershka, Oysho, Stradivarius, Zara Home, Zara Kids, Pull and Bear, and Uterqüe. And don’t let the Italian name mislead you; Massimo Dutti is a Spanish company. The Italian name is purely fictional and not the name of a real person.

Here are some images from Massimo Dutti’s latest lookbook for women and from its winter campaign.

HOUSE ILLUSTRATIONS

Yes, that is true; and something more
You’ll find, where’er you roam,
That marble floors and gilded walls
Can never make a home.

But every house where Love abides,
And Friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home-sweet-home:
For there the heart can rest.

– Excerpt from A Home Song by Henry Van Dyke
