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.

This winter, Notify Jeans wants to keep you covered in denim the French way. Designer Maurice Ohayon, who made his way through Ungaro, Vanessa Bruno, Stella McCartney (with whom he created a capsule collection of jeans) and K Karl Lagerfeld (where he was Artistic Director), founded Notify, incorporating his love of art, design and desire to mix classic sartorial handcrafts with modern innovation. Made in Italy, Ohayon does not sacrifice much in terms of creating luxurious jeans. For Fall-Winter 2011, coated purple jeans, elegant trouser fit silhouettes and the trademark Notify front pocket panel top-stitching promises not to disappoint its legions of fans in Europe and abroad.
