Combining heritage with modern functionality, a unique collaboration between Closed and its original founder François Girbaud.
The history of the label speaks for itself: Closed was founded in 1978 by Marithé and François Girbaud – they were not only the pioneers of European sportswear (a forerunner of today’s streetwear), but also committed innovators who set new standards for modern denim design. François Girbaud was the first designer to use stonewashed denim, a signature style that is now a casual wear staple.
Since 1978, Closed has been a symbol for innovation in denim, chinos, ready-to-wear and accessories for men and women. The heritage label combines Italian easiness, Nordic minimalism and French sophistication into an international line that is as much about sustainability as it is about high-quality materials, elaborate design and traditional production.
