Dina and I vacationed in Barcelona back in 2009 and fell in love with the city and country. We loved it so much that we discussed buying a second home there rationalizing “it’s just a little bit further than California, why not?” (Don’t worry Mom, that fantasy was short lived.) One of the aspects that I truly identified with was their fashion sense. A relaxed bohemian style with an edge, it felt relatable and just my speed. The women were beautiful, confident and chic but not in a forced way. I loved it! While shopping one day we found the most amazing retail store called Massimo Dutti and both could not get enough of it. It reminded me of Zara (my favorite store) so no surprise that they are owned by the same parent company, Inditex. Like the GAP in the States and H&M in Europe, there was one on every corner. We went into all of them saying to each other “this one may have something different than the last – we can’t miss out.” I’m ecstatic to tell you all that this Spanish gem has arrived in NYC. It opened this past October (the store is on Fifth between 55th and 56th) and today I paid it my first visit.
Massimo Dutti – NYC
It was everything I remembered so I stacked up on some great sweaters (that were on sale) and super cute spring pants. I had to share this news because if you’re like me and appreciate this expression of style (a more refined Zara), the price points are fantastic! And for all you boys out there – you’re in luck! They carry Mens. Go check it out and tell me what you think. Happy shopping!!!! A few things I picked up today:
