    The story of a brand with soul

    1950

    Adolfo Domínguez is born

    He was born in Trives, a village in Ourense, Galicia. He grew up surrounded by tailoring and studied art and film in Paris during the revolutionary decade of the Beatles and the May 68 protests.

    1976

    Adolfo Domínguez becomes Adolfo Dominguez

    Influenced by contemporary Japanese designers, he arrived in the Spanish fashion scene with a vision based on simplicity and freedom. True to his style, Adolfo Dominguez dresses “the immense minority”, in the memorable words of Juan Ramón Jiménez. His first store opened in the town of Ourense in 1976, where he launched his men’s collection.

    The wrinkle is beautiful

    In keeping with the brand’s philosophy of creating poetic simplicity, Adolfo Dominguez’s first women’s collection was born. It is in this period that the unforgettable Spanish fashion slogan first emerged: “the wrinkle is beautiful”. A historical phrase which speaks to the brand’s penchant for anything natural, and their conviction that clothing is our second skin.

    1985

    L’Uomo Vogue

    The Spanish designer’s creations began to appear in fashion publications of international acclaim. Toward the end of the ‘80s, the prestigious mens style magazine L’Uomo Vogue dedicated a monographic feature on Adolfo Dominguez, recognising him as one of the most important European designers of the moment.

    1989

    Penélope Cruz for Adolfo Dominguez

    The young actress posed for Adolfo Dominguez’s campaign at the end of the ‘80s, wearing pieces from the Fall/Winter 1989 collection.

    1984

    Miami VIce

    In those days, detectives still wore trench coats and fedoras. But when Adolfo Dominguez offered to dress the cast of the American show Miami Vice, he opted for white shirts and crisp linen suits.

    1986

    On the Parisian runways

    Adolfo Domínguez’s talent was recognised across Europe. His collections were shown at Wagram Hall in Paris and the Casa de Campo in Madrid, and sold at retail temples like London’s Harrods.

    The triumph of poetic simplicity.

    1990

    Agua Fresca: the first fragrance

    A scent can provoke memories. And the memory of a scent can remain in one’s subconscious forever. Which is why, in 1990, Adolfo Dominguez launched, in collaboration with Puig, its first perfume. He became the first designer in Spain to commercialise a fragrance under his own name; a feat which would reap fruitful sales and an opening in the country’s fragrant memory.

    1993

    Barbie for Adolfo Dominguez

    Barbie, an avant-garde icon in fashion, has been dressed by some of the world’s greatest designers. In honour of the doll’s 35th birthday, Adolfo Dominguez created a set of exclusive designs just for her.

    1997

    Adolfo Dominguez on the stock exchange

    On the 18th of March, Adolfo Dominguez shares were sold on the Spanish stock exchange. It was the first Spanish fashion brand to become a publicly traded company.
    In the same year, the designer won the Aguja del Oro award from the Spanish Ministry of Culture, one of the most prestigious awards in the industry.

    1992

    International growth

    The decade of the ‘90s brought the exploration of other cultures, other countries with which to exchange ideas and values. The growth that arose was unstoppable: in under ten years, three continents were conquered, with stores opening in Belgium, Mexico, Great Britain, Japan, Argentina… Today, the firm has over 500 stores all over the world.

    1995

    Agua Fresca de Rosas

    The fragrance that would become an icon was born. Rose petals, Lily of the Valley, and Jasmine blend over a base of Sandalwood, Oak, and Musk. Agua Fresca de Rosas was, and remains, one of the bestselling perfumes in the country.

The designer also attends the first Conference for Spanish Leaders in Climate Change, presided by Nobel prize winner Al Gore.

    2008

    Pets collection, designed by Adriana Domínguez

    Fruit of the brand’s love for animals, the first line for pets was born. A project led by Adriana Domínguez in which she idealised garments and accessories that would make life easier for our most loyal companions. Gastón, her own pet, became the face of the collection.

    2009
