Another week, another fashion event. This time, one of my favourite brands Massimo Dutti invited me for a champagne breakfast at their newly refurbed store on Regent Street. Walking in, the smell of fresh flowers awakened my senses as they had the most glorious floor to ceiling arrangement, as I nibbled on croissants and sipped on my cappuccino. A charming man then approached me, and handed me a drawing… of me! Massimo Dutti had an illustrator in the store, who was sketching each guest while we were blissfully unaware. What a great touch to the party – I now have it framed on my mantle piece and if anyone asks I say it was from an admirer.
The new collection is phenomenal and shows Massimo Dutti at it’s best: cashmere, over-coats, leather jackets, knee-high boots, knitted jumpers, and perfectly fitted blouses, all in the perfect autumn colour palette. Their quality is uncompromised, and their pieces fit beautifully, making them look elegant and expensive. Their trends are also those which you can wear year after year, thanks to the classic styles and neutral colours. Here are my top picks to help you get perfectly suited and booted for when our glorious summer begins to come to an end, and our long winter begins.

And if that wasn’t enough for you, this week also sees the launch of Massimo Dutti’s Equestrian collection. A collection inspired by the elite equestrian world is available exclusively in their Regent Street, Oxford Street and King’s Road stores. The collection consists of luxurious velvet blazers, jodhpurs, shirts and blazers that incorporate the technical fit and style of professional equestrian wear. Causal equestrian wear in the form of polo shirts, cashmere, padded gilets and jackets also form part of the collection alongside accessories such as soft leather bags, a printed silk scarf, keyrings and a stirrup detail bracelet – ultimately a unique and timeless collection available now in womenswear, menswear and childrenswear.
