Telfar fans, rejoice. SSENSE has announced that it is releasing a brand new (and very good) colorway of Telfar's Shopping Bag, aka the "Bushwick Birkin." The classic shopping bag is now available in bright orange and in its usual three sizes: small (or mini), medium, and large, ranging in price from $140 to $230.
The New York-based brand's signature bag has become a go-to item for cool kids everywhere and boasts a range of celebrity fans, including Solange, Selena Gomez, A$AP Ferg, Dua Lipa, and Real Housewife of New York Sonja Morgan. The bag was recently featured in The Cut, which noted that it's become "a symbol of group identity for young, creative New Yorkers, especially queer people and people of color."
Designer and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Telfar Clemens described his eponymous brand as "genderless, democratic, and transformative" to the publication, noting that when he started his line back in 2005 at the age of 19, "someone like me wasn't thought of as a fashion customer." Hence, the timeless Shopping Bag, which comes at a competitive (and accessible) price point.
Telfar has come a long way in those 15 years. The brand hosted a runway show at Pitti Uomo on Thursday during men's fashion month. Its Fall 2020 collection showed off some new looks for the popular Shopping Bag, by way of metallic finishes and additional colors.
The exclusive orange bags are currently available on SSENSE. Cop 'em before they're gone.
