After his first business failed due to the economic state of the
country after World War I, Hugo Boss managed to find success with his
second venture as the official supplier of uniforms to the SA and SS
guards of Nazi Germany. Though he was fined heavily for his support of
the Nazi party after World War II, his company was able to survive and
transitioned into a suit making business. Hugo Boss died in 1948 and
was unable to see the success of his enterprise in the post war era—the
male fashion industry was on its way to establishing itself and the
Hugo Boss brand was to be a major player.
By the 1960's and 1970's the Hugo Boss suit was the benchmark for
quality and fashion. Under the guidance of his grandsons Uwe and Jochen
Holy, the Hugo Boss brand was gradually reshaped into the international
fashion powerhouse that we see today with high fashion clothing,
accessories, footwear and fragrances. In 1985 Hugo Boss granted its
first fragrance license for the men’s cologne, Boss Number One. Boss
Elements was introduced in 1993 and for the younger demographic, Hugo
for Men in 1995 and Hugo for Women in 1997. Many other Hugo Boss
colognes have been launched since such as Baldessarini and the various
In Motion colognes for men and Intense and Hugo XX perfumes for women.
Hugo Boss fragrances are readily available and come in variety of
different styles depending on the mood of the user.
