Is Massimo Dutti a fast fashion like Zara?

See Massimo Dutti is not considered a true fast fashion brand like Zara but there are some things about Massimo Dutti that draw the blurred line.

The first thing about Massimo Dutti that makes it seem it is a fast fashion brand is Inditex(the company that owns Massimo Dutti and also Zara).

The company is well known for producing fast fashion brands like Zara, which makes it look like Massimo Dutti is also a fast fashion brand.

Another thing that makes a strong point about Massimo Dutti being a fast fashion is the production cycle. Massimo Dutti keeps refreshing its collection after some time. The speed of the production cycle is quite quicker than that of a brand that is not a fast fashion brand.

However, arguably if compared to Zara Massimo Dutti is still pretty slow in changing its collection.

Well, in contrast to these arguments, there are some other things that hold back Massimo Dutti from being a true fast fashion brand like Zara. What are they? You might be asking?

Well, the first is quality. As we already discussed the quality of Massimo Dutti is superior to Zara.

Another main aspect is the style. If you look closely, Massimo Dutti puts more focus on classic silhouette. Whereas Zara is more about following the trend from baggy jeans to ripped jeans. You can buy anything from Zara which is in trend.

Lastly, the price point is one point that draws a blurred line. As discussed above, Massimo Dutti is more expensive than Zara. Most fast fashion brands are not that expensive.

So is Massimo Dutti a fast fashion brand?

Well, to be fair we can say that Massimo is somewhere in the middle of fast fashion and contemporary fashion. Though it follows some characteristics of fast fashion brands, but also does not blindly prioritize fast fashion.

Sustainability is a big deciding factor for some. And we all know Zara is continuously criticized for being a fast fashion model.


So, to sum it up it is clear that Massimo Dutti is better than Zara in terms of quality. If you prefer quality and classic style Massimo Dutti should be your pick over Zara. But if you want to follow the trend then Zara gives you more freedom and options.
