Get to know the inclusive New York fashion brand behind the Telfar Shopping Bag, the It-bag that has fans in Solange, Selena Gomez and more.

Specifically, the Telfar Shopping Bag: a boxy, monochromatic vegan leather bag with both long straps and a top handle, and no adornments save for an embossed logo on its façade. This is the accessory being hailed by fashion insiders as the It-bag of today; some have even gone as far as to call it the “Bushwick Birkin”.

Bushwick in Brooklyn is where a 19-year-old Telfar Clemens set up his studio 15 years ago with a single goal in mind: to make gender-neutral clothing for everyone. Emphasis on “everyone”, because the Liberian-American designer had long felt that high fashion was inaccessible to people like him, or anyone without an Amex Black card. Telfar was his way of flipping the script.
