The latest lookbook for May 2012 from Spanish fashion house Massimmo Dutti has been released, showcasing well-tailored suits that a gentleman would love to wear. The collection has a very smart-casual and preppy feel to it, with an almost 1960s mod vibe. The palette utilised this season is very neutral, with shades of blue, sand and grey providing the base colours that are very flattering to most skin tones.
The lookbook features blazers in timeless silhouettes, cardigans with elbow patches, ties and scarves in prints, slim fit tailored trousers, a variety of plain and braided leather belts, oversized top handle bags, and loafers in both suede and leather. The label also offers casual staple pieces, like the rugby shirt and the blouson jacket, which both provide a relaxed aesthetic that doesn’t sacrifice fit or design.
Here at FashionBeans, we are big fans of the versatility and adaptability of the collection. The collection’s versatility is a by-product of its focus on timeless silhouettes and the neutral colour palette, whilst the adaptability is provided by a collection of garments that can be effortlessly mixed and matched together, to produce a variety of looks for every occasion you can think of. Dress up for formal events with a suit, shirt and tie combination or dress down with a rugby shirt layered underneath an unstructured sports jacket.
The main pillar of male fashion is fit, and this collection features tailoring that is flattering to the body without sacrificing comfort.
Overall, the spring/summer 2012 lookbook from Massimmo Dutti showcases a timeless collection of pieces, which give a subtle and refined nod to current menswear trends. Finding the perfect balance between formal and casual, each piece in this collection would make a welcome addition to any man’s wardrobe.
