Delayed but worth the wait: our report from the CLOSED FW’12 preview/presentation! It was our very last event during NYFW, winding down the whirl-wind week in the dimly lit lounge of the Bowery Hotel. We sipped whiskey sours and saw the collection modeled one ensemble at a time (on models who mingled and posed in a space open to everyone/anyone to jump in for a quick portrait). We were ecstatic to see a saturated cerulean blue jeans in the men’s collection, alongside an impeccably clean-cut denim workshirt, colored cords, and some two-toned knitwear that no man couldn’t find a way to work into his look.
The women’s collection was minimalist-preppy, with texture applied in maroon stripes and metallic embroidered polka-dot. We fawned over an elegant every-day layered one-piece tank top (uncomplicated despite its structure) and subtle tuxedo stripe chinos—a trend we were having a hard time loving until we saw the CLOSED adaptation. We posted about the full collection yesterday, so have a look if you missed it. Bottom line? This collection is clean, cool, and rich. Three things you can’t do fall without.
See our snaps from the presentation below.
We were thrilled to run into Lisette from Denimology while we were there!

The Goldsign Jeans holiday 2011 lookbook brings two things we love to see: form-fitting, sexy jeans in a range of fall colors and washes, including a gorgeous red dye and a black coated option, with a full spectrum of blue washes from royal blue to white-wash and denim alternatives, like caramel brown corduroys. Remember how we flipped over the men’s mustard yellow version of these at PROJECT this past summer? The holiday line could stand alone as its own fall collection with this depth of variety, and we love that while each style has its own personality, every piece has something in common: these jeans are cut to show off your assets (while still keeping it totally classy).
