Telfar has moved on from New York and brought its SS20 collection to Paris Fashion Week. Models walked in the new collection in front of a screening of The World Isn’t Everything, a film brand founder Telfar Clemens collaborated on with Ashton Sanders, Petra Collins, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris. When a character came on screen, the model would walk down the runway in the very same look.
The lineup of sports and casual wear was inspired by “the customs and security lines at any airport at any given time, anywhere in the world,” with a particular focus on the ’70s as seen in the side-striped shorts, high-waisted denim, cut-out tracksuits, and knit polos.
Notably, Telfar debuted a new footwear collaboration with Converse which included fresh takes on the Chuck 70, Pro Leather, and ERX models, the ERX silhouette being reworked as a sandal, while the former two are hacked up as slip ons. The collab also includes a graphic tee that riffs on Converse’s logo.
