Town Center Mall Gains New International Designer


Staff report
Spanish-based Adolfo Domínguez has opened its second boutique in the United States in Boca Raton at the Town Center mall.
The new nearly 1,500-square-foot store is located in Palm Court near Bloomingdale’s next to Bvlgari.
The new store features the 2016 Fall/Winter Collection for men and women along with a line of signature accessories.
The global designer fashion label was founded in Spain by Adolfo Domínguez in the 1970s. With its flagship boutique in Madrid, Spain, the brand has points of sale in 50 countries including Venezuela, France, United Kingdom, Thailand, Australia, Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago.
“Following suit with our boutique locations around the globe residing in fashion-sophisticated luxury shopping markets, we are very excited to bring our second boutique to Boca Raton as the social and holiday season begins,” Adolfo Domínguez said in a news release.
A look at the collections:
AD WOMEN: “Casual And Functional” A Return To The Label’s Signature DNA
According to Domínguez, the AD WOMEN Fall/Winter Collection captures the essence of the brand’s personality. Domínguez refers to it as a poetic rendition of the essentials, wardrobe staples and a nod to the 90s from where the minimalist aesthetic has been extracted and refreshed.
The knitwear is all-embracing, working on both sides of the fabric with masculine and English tailoring details: wool cloth, flannel, Prince of Wales check, herringbone and Harris tweed.
Evening-wear is peppered with lamé, Lurex, burnout fabrics, taffeta and chiffon. The on-trend touch is provided by the patent leather, pony-skin,
fleece and Mongolian goat on eco-leather.
Stylish pieces such as capes, bodices, long waistcoats, pinafores and Spencer jackets are set to become the key garments. Silhouettes favor layering and the combining of different lengths. Asymmetrical hemlines, sleeves and necklines are present. References to the masculine wardrobe and the sports-look trend are also in evidence.
Every temperature of the color range is visible: cool shades such as ice and light grey darken as the season advances to be combined with touches of camel, blue and pale pink. Warm shades feature on backgrounds of anthracite grey, black and navy, while military green, in various degrees of saturation, gains prominence. Signature prints, where the trembling of the fingers can be discerned, remain present. This time with Oriental-inspired floral themes on gauzes, chiffons and georgette.
AD MEN: “Socially And Ecologically Aware” Man Who Wears His Clothes Like A Second Skin
Domínguez reports that this season’s collection is abundant with artisanal and bohemian themes, with the vintage influence observable on items such as pants and tailored garments. Relaxed looks and deconstructed silhouettes once again become the epitome of the brand style.
Rejuvenated takes on 50s and 70s nostalgia make an appearance: knitted fabric tailoring with pinstripes and collarless shirts. Garments treading a stylish line between classic and casual for a relaxed yet well turned out look. Alpaca and merino wool garments are the heroes of the limited edition collections, while the sports look is gaining ground with super-lightweight garments crafted from technical fabrics and tiered items for a layered look.
The color palette journeys between icy shades (greys, indigo, nudes, sky blue and white), and earthy and more intense hues (burgundies, khakis and navies). Black appears in
blocks, enhanced with textures.
