Closed is a contemporary denim brand with a unique creative DNA: French imagination, Italian craftsmanship, and German tradition. French fashion designers Marithé and François Girbaud launched Italy's first denim line in 1978 and the collection retained prominence through the eighties. Now under the name Closed and owned by a trio of friends based in Germany, Closed denim retains special details of their heritage styles. The signature X-pockets have been around for more than 40 years, originally designed to allow easier access to the front pocket. Closed focuses on sophisticated, high-quality designs and strives to make every stage of the denim production process as sustainable as possible.
