Adolfo Dominguez (Paragon)
The buzz: 40-year-old Spanish label Adolfo Dominguez is available for the first time here with the opening of its first flagship boutique at Paragon.
The vibe: Heavy on ash, walnut and oak woods (floor, shelves, counter-tops), the 1,450 sq. ft. space is, quite ironically, rather masculine with its clean, modern lines, classic design and dark color palette. But gold leafed pendant lamps, brass shelving frames and racks inject a touch of sophisticated femininity for a stylish balance.
The goods: Simple and unfussy silhouettes coupled with an effortlessly chic ready-to-wear collection ensure that you can go from the boardroom to dinner in no time. There’s also a range of glamorous evening gowns and cocktail dresses that are truly outstanding. In store now is the brand’s Spring Summer 2013 nautical-inspired collection, which features sophisticated, relaxed and clean-cut looks in simple retro prints and Mediterranean hues like blue and white. Prices range from $119 for tops, $429 upwards for dresses and $229 upwards for bottoms.
Why you’ll be back: If Zara and Massimo Dutti are your wardrobe staples, then you’ll enjoy the slightly sexier range available here.
