From Kilimanjaro to Morocco: many souls for Closed men and women collections
Travel with your imagination. Travel with Closed’ inspiration. Many, different souls live together and let us dream of far away lands.
On one hand, Going South where the sophisticated hippie meets the archive-loving world traveler; on the other mountaineering influences of the Kilimanjaro peak. These are the two souls that perfectly live together in the Closed SS2020 Men Collection.
Closed introduces a trans-seasonal approach, with a corresponding selection of styles, details and fabrics. And here there’s the Kilimanjaro peak meeting the streetwear: from Up the Mountain to down the street, the focus is on items that can move seamlessly between private and public, moving on to more functional and utilitarian inspired garments, even in our more formal look. Mountaineering details are combined with soft cashmeres, washed jerseys and even shearling to durable materials. Man’s needs to explore the world change its way of approaching the world itself.
A free-spirited approach, oriental and hippie references, celebrating cultural identities and expressing positive openness and individuality. The minimal lining and garment construction make Closed SS2020 Going South: relaxed tapered pants, natural fibred tops for jackets and sweats, patterns like stripes and checks, cotton and linen for a supreme lightness and a summerly hand-feel. The same free-spirited approach that Closed has in the Women Spring Collection. Destination Unknown has been inspired by Frida Kahlo and her original, colorful life. A collection that a modern-day Frida would have enjoyed wearing. In today’s world with the possibilities of easy travel, Frida Kahlo would have been a contemporary nomad and would have travelled the world to get her inspiration. Being the cool vibrant artist that she was, Morocco with all its charm and color would most likely have been one of her favorite places. This summer collection is fresh and sophisticated, full of vibrancy, noise and big statements. Utility details and feminine elements; cargo pant silhouettes and oversized shift dresses; botanical leaf prints and traditional blouses: versatility is the key. A sophisticated nomad touch what makes this modern Frida true.
