“Never putt off till tomorrow what you can do today”, Morgane Sézalory creator of Sézane well understood this quote and made it one of her course of action, supporting projects which matter a lot to her and which are meaningful with respect to her history. In this beginning of the year, Sézane blows its fifth candle and looks toward the future launching the project “Demain” to support child-related causes. To give a future to children whose perspectives are unfairly limited, that is the mission that Sézane gave to itself launching this solidary program. The goal? Raise 1 billion euros in 2018 supporting concrete actions in favour of the access to education, the culture and the fight for equal opportunities. To fill up this piggybank, the creator has launched “l’Appel du 21”, with the creation of a special piece available all the 21st of the month, whose profit – as well as 10% of the turnover of the day, are transferred to associations such as La Voix des Enfants, the Académie Football Paris 18, Dessine-moi un mouton or even Double horizon. Close to Clothes which works with Sézane since a long time, encourages this initiative and encourages you to support the cause buying one of its creations “Demain”.

For its Autumn-Winter 2018-19 fashion show, Alexandre Mattiussi creator of the brand AMI, invited its audience to live a midnight ride on the roofs of Paris. Max Richter’s music in background, the show starts with a young couple of models who escapes from a skylight. Hand-in-hand, the two lovers walk around and go away to let the show begin. Long coats on the shoulders and hands in the pockets, striped shirts put on a turtleneck, pleated pants and white tennis at the feet, the AMI looks are at once elegant and casual. The fantasy ends up with the apparition of five young girls who present the first creations for women, or rather “the man for women” as the creator explains. Close to Clothes, which accompany the brand AMI, is excited to find those beautiful basics (a camel coat, an oversize tuxedo, a leather and sheepskin jacket, a long coat and an XXL turtleneck) which will be sold exclusively in the AMI shop Rue de Grenelle. Everything you need to refine a genderless look...
The tourists were hoping for it, the Parisians were demanding it, the City of Paris did it! By creating the label "Made in Paris", it is a global demand that finds an answer: put on the front of the stage products made in the capital that embody its identity and traditions! A mission, not least, which took place in several times. First of all, a call for applications has been launched. This was followed by a selection of 234 projects, all submitted to the vote of the Parisians. The experiment ended on December 18 with the announcement of the finalists at a ceremony held in the salons of the City Hall. In total, the 15 laureates of the 5 categories presented (crafts and creation, food crafts, production activities and "innovation" awards, Parisian favorites) were rewarded. This place on the podium will allow them to acquire a new visibility, a professional recognition in their field but also a pledge of quality that they can integrate into their communication. Close To Clothes supports this initiative, which promotes local and qualitative consumption.

For some time, luxury brands have shunned divas creators and prefer to surround themselves with talented young designers still unknown to the general public. In January 2015, Gucci tried the experiment with Alessandro Michele and the success was there. The tempo was given and the luxury industry was quick to keep up. Could this be the new makeover of fashion houses? Part of it, of course, because brands are also embracing changes in our society and adapting to new ways of working ... Exit individualistic creators and their quirks of stars and place to work as a team. The economic reason also played its role in previous seasons as instability did not encourage brands to pay the considerable salaries of star creators. Especially if young shoots were able to meet the same challenges and blow a breath of fresh air on the collections. Big names against newcomers? We will see who will be best in the future ...
