So it’s been seen on just about everyone from our girls Katie and SJP to Drew Barrymore and even Penelope Cruz too. Closed Denim, founded in Italy and originally created for Postal workers in Germany, might be the next big indie line out there with most every staple jean style you’d care to wear, as well some fun and unexpected items too.

What really sets Closed apart however, is not just its vintage framework or its feel-good working class origins. At least, that’s not what did it for me. While all of that marketing genuis is more than fantastic (and you all know how I love a great ad campaign to get a company on a roll!), what I appreciate even more is actual and genuine design autonomy, exquisite fabrics and true attention to detail. And, lucky for Closed, they’ve nailed it on all accounts in my book.

Calling themselves a “total look” of “sophisticated casualwear”…”a constant dialogue between functionality and innovation,” the Closed brand not only offers denim for women and men, but also some adorable childrens wear, and shoes and accessories too.

Here are some of my favorite denim looks:

the Katie Jeans, wide leg, patch pockets, available in different washes

So, if you are still not a fan, I encourage you to go and check out the rest of their 2009 Collection at Closed.com, because this is certainly not all they’ve got. Their range of washes, their color palette and their fabric choices are kind of unreal…I mean, start thinking Jil Sander lights (Creative Director for Closed is currently former Jil Sander Designer Sophie Lewis btw…) to DVF brights…dresses, belts, chinos, gladiator sandals, even silk tops…Whatever your passion, they’re doing it nicely over there…

Also, be sure check out our fave Yoox.com for some great buys from the 2008 collection too!
