Our origins lie in a small family tailor

We dressed the social avant-garde
who introduced democracy to Spain.
We altered the ironed and corseted
style of the late Franco era with
relaxed volumes and natural
materials. We allowed linen to
wrinkle. Natural instead of iron.
This phrase covers the entire
philosophical dimension of the
brand, which does not only enter the
aesthetic space of fashion, but also
the ethical space. It forms part of the
Spanish mindset not only as the
concept for Adolfo Domínguez, but
also as an expression to appreciate
the intrinsic beauty of fabrics and of people.
International press positions us as
one of the most relevant European
brands at the moment. L’Uomo
Vogue dedicated a broad
monographic report to
With our Agua Fresca perfume, we
forever impacted the olfactory
memory of the entire country.
Nowadays, it is still one of the most
loved fragrances in Spain.
Once consolidated in our original market, we
opened to other markets. Currently, the brand
has over 390 stores distributed all around the

plan is an exercise in creativity and

A return to the essence of the brand.
With a new communication strategy,
the brand recovered its previous
social relevance. The award-winning
campaign “Be older” became the “Wrinkles
are beautiful” of the modern day.
The company moved back into
profitability and became a
case study of a turn-around.
RETURN TO CREATIVITY.
The company returned to its artistic
roots with Tiziana Domínguez as
Creative Director. After years of
absence, it returned to shows with a
new proposal: models who are not
professionals and out-of-place
catwalks. It also recovered local
production through limited
collections that experiment with
