I spent a year living near St. Sebastian in Spain and the stuff you buy at Dutti is very similar to Zara but is better quality / more stylish. Really not my cup of tea!

it's one of my favorite high street brands, but unfortunately it's very popular here. i only buy some basics and tops for MD. good quality and reasonable prices.

Hi!

Massimo Dutti is one of my favs too. That's one more shop we don't have here in Finland. Nearest is in Stockholm, Sweden - not so far really...
Hopefully we can get our own to Helsinki, as soon as possible!

it was my first time visiting a Massimo Dutti store today and I am in love!
the quality is amazing and their store is not overstuffed, great basics.

i wish their store wasn't that far away.

I loved Massimo Dutti when i was in the London store!
I purchased a pair of jeans and a dress that everyone still comments on. I don't like the quality though, dress was ok but jeans very bad. Quite expensive as well i thought.

I bought a cashmere printed skirt a few days ago and spotted some nice items but some of of the collection is as expensive as some designers...Thats' insane but then I guess the rent on rue Royale next to Ralph Lauren and Co must be paid somehow...

June 2007 I bought quite a bit of Massimo Dutti stuff - really elegant pieces, and everything I bought was well made and stylish.

I've been back since (I don't have a MD at home, I can only buy it when I go overseas) Feb 2008 and now, and MD seems to be very dowdy and nothing that nice at all, which doesn't justify the high prices they're charging.

Seem a bit sad that I'm possibly the only Massimo Dutti fan still checking out this thread. Their clothes are less trendy and more classic, and their range is smaller than their sister brand Zara, so I can understand why it has more limited appeal. But I adore the quality of their clothes - fabrics and cuts - and they made fantastic basics that I live in. I think most of the time their clothes are well-priced for the quality. I am so in love with this grey coat this season - see here

Oh I have to check what they're doing this season!

I really like what they do but unlike Zara that you find at every corner of the city, the location of their stores in Paris is scarce and not in my favourite arrondissements.

Don't get me wrong, I prefer that because the clothes are less obvious and identifiable than Zara's or H&M's that you can so easily spot.

i think if you like the clean preppy timeless classic look then massimo dutti is great for it..but for seasonal trend pieces i really wouldnt go there. they really do have some lovely bits but i am the kind who would rather pay a bit less and wear something from zara for a season as i know i will get bored of it soon

they do have basics of excellent quality: tees, cashmere-mix sweaters, belts...

Most of the time I wouldn't shop there at full price, but will definitely hunt down some basics during sales.
