New York designer Telfar Clemens has only grown in popularity in recent years. His minimal designs combine function, high-end sensibility, and effortless style, making fans in resident cool kids from Kelela and Dev Hynes to Solange. And this season, Telfar is taking his designs to Paris Fashion Week for the first time.
But don't be intimidated! You can wear it, too, which has always been key to Telfar's appeal. The designer's first-ever jewelry collection drops today and it comes in three chic, unisex styles in silver and gold. There are small hoop earrings, stud earrings, and a diamonte pendant gold-plated chain — all bearing Telfar's ubiquitous logo, which is quickly becoming iconic. And they come at accessible price points, ranging from $160 to $240.
Below are five short videos featuring models from Danny Bowien, Oyinda, Diamond Stingily, and more, having a barbecue on a rainy day at Telfar's Bushwick, Brooklyn studio. In the videos, made by Safdie Brothers cinematographer Sean Williamson, Telfar and friends have drinks and food around a big table, and wash their hair, talk about cab rides, astrology, and then some, while showing off the new accessories.
You'll want to wear these doing just about anything, with just about anyone, everywhere. Like Telfar's most beloved pieces (especially those top-selling shopper totes, which just got four new colors), the luxury of his pieces comes from living in them. Watch the "instructional videos," below, for clues on how you can do the same, and get your precious jewels here.
