Is The Telfar Shopping Bag The Millenials’ Birkin?
Hannan Saleh

Telfar Clemens is leading a new generation of inclusive clothing. His unisex fashion line, Telfar, which launched in 2005 won the CDFA Vogue Fashion Fund in 2017 and has become one of the buzziest brands since. Before his big win, Clemens released his popular Shopping Bag–a roomy tote with two sets of straps–which sold out in a heartbeat. Now, after scoring $400,000 from the CDFA he’s able to offer more colorways and sizes through his e-commerce site and a few major stockists including Opening Ceremony and Ssense.

Though the brand has made waves with its gender-defying looks, nothing has captured Millennials’ attention quite like its Shopping Bag. Available in black, tan, white, dark olive and oxblood and ranging from sizes small to large, many high-end label lovers have ditched their designer carralls and hopped on a much trendier and affordable wave. Prices vary depending on size, but the most expensive bag is $240, while the cheapest–priced at $140–makes this much a more accessible option than a Gucci or YSL purse.

While you’re debating on which Telfar bag to purchase, get some style inspo from these influencers below.
