When you hear about breaking news, new fashion drops are probably not a priority, but it is a pretty pressing matter. One of our favorite black-owned brands, Telfar, is launching a new bag design. As the brand advertises itself as a “brand for everyone”, we’re pretty sure almost everyone has collected at least one Telfar bag or is planning to buy their next one.
However, although Telfar is best known for its signature bag dubbed the Bushwick Birkin, the brand’s new bag is just as stylish and has already garnered anticipation from the brand’s strong support system. Like most new releases, the stylish friends of Telfar were treated to the first preview and received the new bag as a gift. Stylist/fashion consultant Amanda Murray, also known as @londongirlinnyc, was one of the first to share the design on social media, giving followers a glimpse of her stylish test drive on her Instagram story.
The new design appears as an enlarged version of the brand’s logo, in which the upper part of the “TC” logo extends to be used as handles. From the photos, the bag appears to be constructed of leather and noting the brand’s history, it is most likely vegan leather. According to Murray’s posts, the bag can be carried as a clutch by the handles or worn cross-body with the detachable shoulder strap.
