This weeks denim review is on a pair of Closed Marlow skinny boyfriend fit jeans that I received to review for you all. This is my third time doing a review on the brand, so it makes a change to do a different fit compared to the two moto styles that I tried before. I also like the fact that these are different to my usual reviews of the classic super skinny jeans and jeggings. Closed don’t seem to list their washes on their website, so I am not 100% sure what the wash of these is. It’s also not listed on any of the labels inside the jeans, but I think I have linked to the right pair at the bottom of this review.
Here is the brand new Winter 2012 Look Book from Closed Denim. I absolutely love the styling of this collection! It sort of reminds me of preppy smart, but it’s mixed with bold brights.
The outfit above, featuring the amethyst purple jeans, is my favourite. I think it’s perfect as everything just goes so well. I love the colours and the fits. Those jeans would have to be the best from the whole Look Book as well. The light blue wash in gallery image 11 is also really pretty. What do you think of the new Winter 2012 Closed Denim collection?
Twentynine Palms in the Mojave Desert forms the backdrop to Closed Denim’s newest campaign for Spring/Summer 2012. Originally inhabited by the Chemeheuvi Native Americans, it is right on the doorstep of the acclaimed Joshua Tree National Park.
Closed were drawn by the pioneering spirit that is still evident in this Southern Californian mountain area. And were instantly charmed by the hospitality and nature of the inhabitants at Twentynine Palms. The daylight there was wonderfully luminous and imbued their shoot with a very special atmosphere amongst all involved.
Twentynine Palms has long been recognised as the ideal spot for Los Angelenos to recuperate from hectic city life. Frank Sinatra and Led Zeppelin singer, Robert Plant, have both dedicated songs to the city. Its place in Rock music history was sealed in 1973 when Alt-Country Rock singer, Gram Parsons died at the Joshua Tree Inn motel.
All of this… the spirit of the place, the laidback vibe, the vast openness of the outdoors and the low-slung sunlight became an additional personality amongst the four people depicted in this shoot. In keeping with the earlier campaigns, the focus remains on selecting creative individuals and not models. Real people who are contributing to their respective worlds and they are:
Ry Cuming – Australian singer/ songwriter now living in LA.
Jessica Joffe – German actress and writer, currently based in LA.
Michael Fujikawa – who describes himself as a “Man of the People” and lives in LA.
Rachel Pouillat – a Berlin-based DJ originally from France.
The campaign images and movie clips were shot by Swiss-born photographer and blogger, Maya Villiger, who previously appeared in their Autumn ’11 campaign. You can see a video from the shoot above and you can check out some photos in the gallery below.
Next to jump on the neon jeans trend is Closed Denim! They have just released 4 new washes in their cropped motorcycle jeans. They have bright yellow, orange, pink and a darker green. I think they are incredible!
I love the fact that they made the moto jeans neon. The yellow pair above is my favourite! I would love to own those as well as the pink! It looks like the prediction we made last month has definitely come true! I’m excited to see who else is going to bring out neon jeans!
