Balenciaga... or Massimo Dutti?
If you liked Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 07-08 collection, with it's shrunken blazers layered over striped polo-necks, buttoned-up shirts, patterned scarves and jodhpurs, but your budget doesn't quite stretch to Balenciaga prices, then you need to get to Massimo Dutti for a cheaper version of the look. They have everything from the jewel-coloured blazers and navy and white striped polo-necks to the narrow-leg riding trousers (their version is a little bit more wearable than the Balenciaga version for those of us with less than model-like thighs) and fringed scarves. The blazers are priced at €195, but the details are fantastic, from the printed lining to the insignia-stamped buttons and contrast piping.
Massimo Dutti is located in the Dundrum Town Centre in Dublin.
