Telfar! Telfar Clemens is the talented designer behind the brand that came up with two of the most quirky and cool collabs of the year: they partnered with White Castle – yes, the fast-food chain – on the “LeFrak” collection, that consisted of an eight-piece unisex capsule that pays homage to the huge apartment complex where the designer lived his whole life. The collection features hoodies, t-shirts and hats displaying Telfar and White Castle’s logos. The prices range between $60 and $220, and the mostly sold out collection can be purchased via his website. For all items sold, White Castle will donate 100% of proceeds to the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Liberty and Justice fund that works in bailing out minors imprisoned on Rikers Island.
There’s also his collab with Century21 that consists of a flagship store inside the New York classic Century 21 department store. He has already unveiled the a t-shirt super-imposing his signature and the Century 21’s logo. His pop-up opened on November 2nd at the Century 21 in lower Manhattan (21 Dey Street).
He considers his label as being “democratic” and his looks are unisex, with a distinct street quality.
