Zara's "Older Sister" Brand Is Looking So Good Right Now

While Massimo Dutti can hardly count as a "lesser-known" brand, we've found that in the world of high-street fashion, it can sometimes get overshadowed by its sister brand, Zara. While the latter has become synonymous with the latest, cutting-edge trends, the former is generally better-known for its classic, tailored pieces and work-ready separates. However, when we walked past Massimo Dutti's window a few days ago, we were blown away by its display of chic autumnal pieces that combined trend-led details with timeless silhouettes. Even Queen Letizia agrees (having recently chosen a sophisticated polka dot dress from the Spanish brand for an official engagement) that this is the store to add to your list.

We've become particularly enamoured by the brand's Limited Edition collection, which might be on the more expensive end of the scale but in our opinion rivals some designer brands. We have our eye on the Limited Edition wool coat with a detachable scarf and robe-like fit. We also love the Limited Edition silk dress with its distinctive pleated capelet. We'll have one of everything, please. Scroll down to shop the full edit.
