Here is an overview of our latest projects at Close to Clothes.

Digital transformation.

Close to Clothes loves to support you in your projects during workshops in the showroom, or trade fairs where each year we present our latest creations. Despite a different context, without the possibility of physical exhibitions, we have not stopped creating, and our teams have developed new innovative collections to offer you inspiring products.

In order to allow you to access it remotely, Close to Clothes wanted to seize various opportunities to expand its digital presence. We first opened access to our latest collections directly on the JPI tool, allowing our customers to view our latest products from their dashboard by discovering various techniques, such as in a catalog. Do not hesitate to contact us to obtain your access! In addition, we have an online store on the Première Vision Market Place, where brands can consult our labeling, whether for sample requests or directly to start a collaboration. We are committed to welcoming you to our offices, but we are just as happy to support you remotely through these means!

Collaboration with
AZ Factory.

We had the pleasure of creating the labeling of AZ Factory, the new, more accessible luxury brand from Alber Elbaz. Launched on January 26, this line is entirely digital, between innovation and technology, which marks the eagerly awaited comeback of the former Artistic Director of Lanvin. Our collaboration with the brand has been very technical and sophisticated, calling for a clever balance between elegance and originality, so characteristic of Alber Elbaz’s creations. We were therefore impatiently awaiting the launch of AZ Factory!

L'UNIFORM patch

L / UNIFORM
from A to Z.

L / UNIFORM wanted to imagine badges for each letter of the alphabet, a concept that we were delighted to realize. The brand wanted to offer its customers a unique way to personalize its objects. Available in a combination of bright colors, the badges are iron-on and can be applied to any L / UNIFORM bag or accessory of your choice, simply with an iron. Alongside this exciting project, we’ve added a series of pyramid-shaped badges to our collection… because once we get started, we can’t stop creating!

Paul & Joe fashion show,
a party above all.

On the occasion of the brand’s 25th anniversary, Paul & Joe organized a parade in the famous Parisian cabaret “Chez Michou”. Our team had to take up the challenge of creating a series of colorful badges, in tribute to Michou and his legendary blue. Close to Clothes only had 3 weeks to design, produce and deliver the visuals. We made badges with the effigy of cabaret dancers – sensual eyes and full lips – not to mention the iconic blue logo. In flat and terry stitch embroidery, the end result was retro, pop and very happy! A big thank you to Pascal from the Paul & Joe team for his trust!
