Modernity Meets Innovation in CLOSED Jeans

How to create basics that you’ll wear for years to come? CLOSED combines impeccable tailoring with an eye for vintage forms.

This season, they draw upon their menswear roots with loose-fitting silhouettes that suggest laid-back Parisian street style. CLOSED jeans, a mainstay among denim aficionados, combine the flair, crop, and high-waisted detailing reminiscent of denim’s Golden Era.

Looking to their own fashion archive from decades past, this line’s latest pieces blur the distinction between menswear and womenswear for effortless wearability.

A Trailblazer in Sustainable Fashion

The secret to this German line’s success? Consistency. CLOSED jeans have been manufactured in the same facilities for decades, ensuring consistent denim quality. In fact, over 80% of the line’s products are manufactured in Europe — a rarity among fashion houses.

This offers them unusual control over everything from the cuts to the dyes of their pieces. CLOSED denim is famous for using environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices. Every year, the brand publishes a sustainability report, detailing its latest innovations in eco-friendly fashion.

But the denim line’s commitment to ethical fashion extends beyond the environment: CLOSED is part of the Fair Wear Foundation, meaning that the line is dedicated to ethical manufacturing conditions and pay.

CLOSED Jeans Set the Standard for Eco-Friendly Denim

This line uses less water, energy, and fewer chemicals than competitors as part of their dedication to environmentally-friendly fabric dyeing. Many of their materials are recycled, too.

The brand’s warehouse in Germany has also been carbon neutral since 2018 — a feat in the fashion industry.

A Brief History of the CLOSED Brand

Though youthful in attitude, this line has been setting fashion standards for decades. CLOSED the brand was founded by Marithé and François Girbaud in 1968 as Ça. Later, they rebranded to CLOSED, which went on to become famous for its signature fly label — as seen on ’80s and ’90s icons including Diego Maradona, Will Smith, Tupac, and Michael Jordan, among others.

Today, the Hamburg-based brand goes beyond denim and offers some of our favorite shirt jackets and loose-fitting sweaters in delicate hues.
