denim gets better the longer you wear it
CLOSED is a story that goes back to 1968.
French fashion designers Marithé and François Girbaud established ÇA – now Closed – with absolute confidence. Way back in 1968.
Trouble wasn’t far away. A large textile chain was not particularly happy with their choice of name. An objection was filed under case number 11342. ÇA had to be renamed. Why not just use this number as the brand name? So they did.
Two years later, in 1978, the case was CLOSED. And the name stayed.
