Shearling: it’s total luxury. The way it envelopes you, almost absorbs you. Soft and warm on the inside and smooth on the outer. Perfect for the season’s cold weather. In deep natural shades, it looks so easy. And the shapes are effortless. The parka is a Closed classic, the sort of wear-anywhere design we love. So why not in lambskin?
This one is a must! There are two key reasons. Firstly, in a season with a lot of traditional elements, technical materials feel fresh. It’s such a contemporary look. Secondly, a modern wardrobe needs functionality as much as style. We’re all constantly on the move – travelling, commuting – and for this we need utility. Technical fabrics tick both of these boxes, so we’ll be wearing them a lot.
Check is the story of the season, for women and men. You’ll find its roots in classic menswear, and it’s this traditional background that makes it so versatile. It can be updated it in so many ways, with new colours and compositions, and it suddenly looks so modern. Pattern like this always works well as one layer of many: a shirt under a sweater, or a jacket over a turtleneck perhaps.
There’s something comforting about the thick ribs of wide corduroy. That extra-soft feel makes it so special. This season, the Closed version appears on relaxed trousers in rich colours. The loose cut adds to the laid-back mood. While the garment-dying technique used to create these special hues gives them such ease. It’s exactly the right attitude for the season. Best worn with a chunky knit.
