Closed X Nigel Cabourn
Closed and Nigel Cabourn have created a joint collection for autumn/winter 2020. The naval-inspired styles for men and women were just presented at Pitti Immagine Uomo 97 in Florence. For their collaboration, the contemporary design brand Closed and the legendary British fashion designer Nigel Cabourn have combined their creative visions. The collection transports Closed’s casual approach and denim heritage while featuring Cabourn’s signature look that draws inspiration from vintage military uniforms.
The whole capsule is naval-inspired – resulting in garments from functional outerwear and overalls, striped knits, casual sweats and patterned wool jacquards to heavyweight denim and shearling. Utility details set the tone, while some of the denim comes with authentic dark washes that appear to be obtained from the sea. Navy and military green are the main colours of the collection. Relaxed shapes give the capsule a very casual “up for anything” attitude. For the women’s styles, masculine elements build an interesting contrast to female details. The men’s styles are functional yet extremely easy to wear.
