Pastel Dreams & Acid Wash Jeans: CLOSED SS13 Preview

At the CLOSED spring 2013 preview, a few scrumptious themes became evident as soon as we entered the showroom: pastels are making a big come back, hand-in-hand with rock’n’roll chic. Think acid wash and bleached-out jeans, leather jackets in candy hues, and denim vests with just the right amount of rough-up. Join us in marking our calendars for spring and eagerly awaiting the release of the intensely stylish selection below.

CLOSED Makes Printed Jeans Fit For An Anime Heroine

When we stopped by CLOSED to preview their spring 2013 line, one pair of jeans immediately stood out from the rest in the spectrum of Euro-chic rockstar-ready denim and knitwear. A pair of printed purple jeans with a beautiful motif that looks as if it was snatched right out of a Japanese anime (or a Yakuza tattoo parlor). The dynamic design was also available in a jacket. We’re pretty sure this is the beginning of a next-level trend in printed jeans that really transform the silhouette and infuse some imagination into the kind of prints we’ve already been seeing. You saw it here first!

Closed Punches Up Metallics and Colored Denim For Winter 2012

In contrast to Closed‘s Fall 2012 collection, which incorporates subdued splashes of colored denim and separates, the Winter collection kicks it up a notch with bolder and brighter blues, magenta (an emerging trendy color right now), softened greens and purples, which dot the men’s collection.  For the women, expect to find bronze and silver jeans along side their colorful gem colored jeans.  Of course, you can sift through their requisite collection of indigo and grays for winter—all in slim and skinny fits—but don’t you think a splash of color adds spice to your wardrobe?

CLOSED Fall 2012 Offers Classic Denim in Wearable Hues

Think you’ve had enough of all the crazy denim trends this year?  We think clothing brand CLOSED will provide some relief with their range of wearable denim from top to bottom.  Maintaining a bit of color in its range of jeans, cotton pants and separates, you’ll feel like you could invest in a couple of solid items that will stretch out your wear longer than the seasons.  Closed is also one of the few denim brands currently offering denim capris—a perfect cut for ladies who want to show off their new favorite booties.  We’re also digging the sartorial touches in the men’s collection.  Check out the gallery below for all the Fall-Winter 2012 looks.

Soak Up The Sun In Neon Skinny Jeans & Lightweight Denim With CLOSED S/S 2012

You might have seen CLOSED‘s new website and behind-the-scenes video in yesterday’s Denim Dose, but we couldn’t resist posting these mouthwatering images from the denim line’s print campaign as well. Snapped in the Mojave Desert by Max Farago, these photos feature creatives like singer/songwriter Ry Cumming and French-born DJ Rachel Pouillat instead of models. Their chill spirit is reflected in the collection’s refreshing acid-hued skinnies juxtaposed with dusty chambray tunics and denim trousers, with plenty of options for both men and women. Set against Twentynine Palms’s gorgeous poolside cerulean blues and desert brush, their message becomes pretty clear: why not soak up SoCal in style?

An Exclusive Q&A With CLOSED

CLOSED is known for classic clothing that meets two basic needs for every modern consumer: function and style. Unhindered by passing trends, the CLOSED collections for men and women are a mix of utilitarian-inspired details, carefully calculated fashion-forward silhouettes, and often neutral color stories that celebrate the rich hues of their denim looks. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Closed Spring/Summer 12 lookbook, you’ll want to do that ASAP.  We had the opportunity to discuss the future of CLOSED and get a sneak peek at what’s going on behind the scenes as well in this exclusive interview below.

Denim Therapy: Lets start from the beginning.  What inspired the beginning of the brand?

Closed: The desire to produce authentic, wearable clothing is what inspired us to get the brand off the ground and it continues as our primary motivation today.

DT: Are there other denim brands you consider your immediate competition? How do you differentiate yourself from the hundreds of popular denim brands afloat right now?

Closed: We don’t like to think of other denim brands as competitors, but as comrades. Hopefully we can inspire and push each other to keep working with innovation and artistry. We distinguish ourselves from all the other denim brands because of our highly researched design approach, our innovative dying techniques, and the fact that we’ve been at this for several decades now.

DT: Does your team have any pre-designing rituals?

Closed: We don’t have any specific pre-designing rituals, but we always strive to keep open eyes and minds to the amazing creativity that is going on around us.

DT: Describe the person who represents your ideal target customer—the customer you have in mind when you’re planning a collection.

Closed: Closed is a family brand and we really design for the whole family, all the way from kids to adults. Our clothes are designed in mind with quality, versatility, and comfort – and let’s face it, those three factors are important for everyone (especially when they look good).

DT: Can you give us a hint about what’s next?

Closed: For Spring/Summer we introduced a new satin band along the side of our chino’s which looks so fresh, so its about meshing fabrics this year an element that continues for Fall/Winter with leather matched with sweats/cashmere blends.

DT: What would be your dream collaboration? Any plans of that in the future?

Closed: We are always dreaming up fantastic collaborations in our heads. Closed is a family brand and we truly operate as a family unit with a homegrown approach to collaborations. We are currently casting our next “X Series” campaign, an ongoing collaboration with ten innovators from ten different cities around the globe – art collectors, artists, actors, bloggers and more.  The campaign celebrates individualism variety, creativity and location.

DT: What are the most popular washes/fits in the line? What are your favorites, and how would you style them?

Closed: The chino’s are always a hit – they fit perfectly and are basic enough to be dressed up or down.

DT: Street style and style blogs are huge in the industry right now as a source of inspiration, influencing the high end labels rather than vice versa. How much does street style influence your designing?

Closed: Tremendously. We are constantly inspired by street style from across the globe. Our designing is directly influenced by the creativity and innovation from bloggers, artists, editors, and friends.

DT: How many pairs of denim do YOU own?

Closed: Too many to count…

DT: Favorite celeb wearing your brand?

Closed: Jake Gyllenhaal always looks good in CLOSED, as does Elle MacPherson. She really knows how to mix up a sophisticated, ultra-chic elegance to our jeans.
