Gordon Giers, Hans Redlefsen & Til Nadler
As a clothing brand, Closed dates back to the late Seventies, and originated out of Italy. They quickly captured the market with the now iconic Pedal Pusher denim jean. A significantly new idea at the time, it earned the company instant success.
Closed continued to innovate and deliver to an enthusiastic clientele. The brand is best known in this early period for their stone wash technique. A finish that every denim manufacturer adopted throughout the late Seventies and Eighties.
Today Closed is an international High-End brand featuring a distinguished total look with a strong attention to quality and details. Always ensuring a constant dialogue between functionality and innovation on the highest level, the design can best be described as "sophisticated casual".
In the 1980ies, another fundamental story started that defines Closed today. Three guys met and became friends: Gordon Giers, Hans Redlefsen and Til Nadler. Today they are business partners, creators and the owners of Closed.
Closed has always been a family enterprise and believes in operating as one big family with a strong believe in long-term relationships. Reliability, authenticity and credibility, combined with an always strong and constant performance make the brand a very successful, precious and fashionable.
The Closed collection is composed for men, women and kids for high fashion customers with an affinity for understatement.
In 2006, Closed moved into its new headquarter ï¿½ an expansive 1400 m2 space that had previously operated as a streetcar depot at the turn of the century. Situated in Hamburgï¿½s fashionable Eppendorf district, the headquarters are open-plan to encourage creative flow, and currently houses 60 employees.
Designed by renowned architect, Carsten Roth, Straï¿½enbahnring 6 is where you will find the design studio, showrooms, production and buying departments, as well as management, marketing, and accounting teams. Essentially, everything under one roof.
The laid-back chic of each collection always represents the current "Zeitgeist" and reflects all kinds of cultural relevancies in a fashionable way.
