Telfar Clemens’ collections are titled like conceptual slash fiction. Last spring, it was Formale;Life. Last fall: Quilted/Comfort. This season, Telfar is courting perhaps his widest audience yet with MAINSTREAM:FLUID, a simply practical collection of swim-inspired sportswear. Boys in halter tops: this is the new normal.
In addition to a streamlined runway show at The Standard on Sunday, Telfar has produced a “VIDEO LOOKBOOK cum music video” for SS14 and we are in2 it.
