Denim News | Garbstore and CLOSED F/W 2010
The philosophy of the Garbstore label is richly ensconced in the history of clothing produced after the Second World War and draws influence from what can be coined “Unfamiliar Vintage”, familiar garments that reference the past but with a modern edge. For over thirty years Closed has been recognized and appreciated for its collections of casual sportswear. From strong conceptual beginnings, the roots of Closed have been denim and chino.
The project presented during the 77th edition of Pitti Uomo contains pieces which represent best the strengths of the two brands: sartorial piece dyed chinos from Closed together with heavy Japanese sweatshirting, marled long staple cotton t´s from Garbstore and a Japanese canvas cloth plaid felted wool lined parka from Garbstore with classic Closed outdoor vintage details beautifully constructed.
The color chart is reduced and muted, sophisticated and basic. Ochre, marl red, green and blue, khaki and black. Models: 1 chino, 1 parka, 1 sweat, 1 tee for men. Each piece carries the leather combined project logo and bears inside both companies´ labeling.
