WHEN the weather gets hot, cool down with free- flow­ing shirts, blouses, pants, dresses and blaz­ers. The Massimo Dutti Spring/ Sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion is beau­ti­fully re­laxed, yet still stylish and suf­fi­ciently put to­gether.

Colour and com­bi­na­tion of lines could very well be con­sid­ered the star of the new sea­son. Each flowy ap­parel of­fered to women, sep­a­rately creates a con­cept that brims with ex­pres­sive­ness and trendi­ness, as well.

The In­dus­try Col­lec­tion fea­tures jack­ets with el­e­ments of front pock­ets and stream­lined trousers with colours rang­ing from olive green to khaki and pe­tro­leum blue. The arabesque airs and red­dish tones of the Asi­lah Col­lec­tion is in­spired by a nod to North­ern Africa.

Ikat mo­tifs, prints and earthy colours all make up the small At­las Col­lec­tion, in which linen is of ut­most im­por­tance for com­fort on warm sum­mer af­ter­noons. Not only that, there are the cold blues with greys that pleas­antly dec­o­rate the Saint Malo Col­lec­tion.

Also look out for minute strokes of black and leather em­bel­lish­ing ac­ces­sories rem­i­nis­cent of the seven­ties. Th­ese are in ad­di­tion to the ki­monos, long dresses and gold- hued heels in sandals of the Cape Town Col­lec­tion.

The men can ex­pect the same from Massimo Dutti for Spring/ Sum­mer. Their col­lec­tion fea­tures a wide rang­ing va­ri­ety of neu­tral shades that clash with the ap­pear­ance of dif­fer­ent colours such as cur­rant red or earth or­anges.

Softly struc­tured cot­ton sweaters with leather de­tails for ex­am­ple, lend an air of dis­tinc­tion to the ar­ti­cles by dis­con­nect­ing the ex­pected easy- go­ing nu­ances. Earthy shades, in­di­gos and beiges re­call the won­drous decade of the fifties in Cuba.

Her­ring­bone blaz­ers in nat­u­ral colours, eth­nic trends and the use of linen with eth­nic, geo­met­ric and tribal print shirts – all pro­vide a cer­tain vin­tage feel to de­signs. Th­ese are how­ever mod­ernised with the ad­di­tion of sports ac­ces­sories such as glasses, satchel bags and pock­et­books.

The Spring/ Sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion is cur­rently avail­able in Massimo Dutti bou­tiques.

The spring/ sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion from Massimo dutti high­lights free- flow­ing and long de­signs.

Loose sil­hou­ettes and light ma­te­ri­als presage the sea­sonal changes, leav­ing the cold winds of win­ter be­hind.
