“The design process together with Leandra has felt very natural and fun on our end and we enjoyed having her involved in every aspect. It ultimately led to a product that feels equally Closed and Leandra,” mentioned Gordon Giers, chief govt officer and cofounder of Closed.
Medine Cohen mentioned, “Working with Closed on this capsule collection after over a year of having no excuse to get dressed reminded me that even through the urge to overstate myself with layers of color and fabric and print, there is absolutely nothing like the comfort of slipping into a well-made pair of jeans with a matching shirt, or the feeling of convenience and excitement in a sweater, or how much fun you can have in a pair of khaki trousers. I hope these are the clothes that support us back into the public sphere.”
Closed, which was based in 1978, has freestanding shops throughout Germany, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland, and is stocked at key retail companions within the U.S. and all over the world.
