Dial up your denim with our curated edit of the best jeans, jackets, skirts and more from Muse

There is a reason why denim has long been a mainstay in the winter wardrobe. Not only is it a durable, stylish and seasonally-appropriate fabric, but it delivers a chic, timeless edge to any look. Whether you opt for tried-and-true jeans, an oversized vintage jacket or the recently-trending long denim skirt (hello, 90s revival), there are a variety of ways for anyone of any taste to fold denim into their wardrobes, and winter provides the perfect opportunity to give our collections a shake-up. 

In thinking about the exact denim pieces we need this season, it is to the sleek, sartorial experts at Muse that we turn. Not only do they offer a meticulously curated spread of styles, but they are careful to call in their denim from some of the world’s most coveted brands. Putting quality over quantity and always making sure that their line-up is interesting, varied and versatile, Muse has become a go-to for the local style set, many of whom rely upon this store to discover some of the best denim in town from brands that are internationally sought-after. 

Here, we round up three such brands and delve into why each is deserving of a place in your seasonal wardrobe. Whatever your style, denim is forever, and Muse Boutique is the best place to find your next favourite piece.

Closed
For everyday classics

Here, French design meets Italian craftsmanship grounded in German tradition to make for a brand that puts heritage and history at the forefront. Closed was founded in 1978 and has, since then, built its reputation on creating collections that play on classical details. Timeless with a twist is how we would describe the pieces by this brand, making it perfect for purists who want something slightly more interesting than the ordinary.
