Telfar designer Telfar Clemens paid a visit to “The Breakfast Club” where he let it be known the brand is planning to open its first flagship store. Without giving away any details on timing or exact location, Clemens said
“We’re opening a store this year in New York City. We’re still deciding where that’s going to be. I don’t want to say too much about it but we’re opening a store this year,” the Queens-born designer stated.
While Telfar has become famous for its Shopping Bag tote, the brand stirred controversy with the debut of a new circle-shaped silhouette, whose $567 price tag was much higher than the tote. Addressing the controversy, Clemens said, “It has more features, the straps are detachable, it’s a different price.”
In addition to multiple high-profile collaboration with labels including Ugg and Moose Knuckles, Telfar recently launched Telfar TV, an entertainment and selling platform. The label also entered the denim category.
