Telfar is expanding its Telfy universe, recently revealing the latest addition to its handbag family: the patent leather shopping bag.

Available on December 6 via Telfar's website, Telfar's newest iteration sees its coveted tote dripped out in glossy patent leather material (and yes, it's vegan).

Aside from a slick external makeover, the patent leather shopping bag arrives with all the bells and whistles of the OG Bushwick Birkin, like the magnetic closure, hand and shoulder straps, and that unmistakable Telfar logo embossed on the front.

Dropping in black and red options, the latest offering naturally comes in the brand's standard sizes options including the small ($191), medium ($252), and large ($362). The increased price is a result of the new, sleek construction (unique materials often cost a little extra and brands gotta make a profit).

There's always a few who complain about the brand's pricing, evident with past drops like the Circle bag. However, the price tag certainly didn't stop fans from selling the circular clutch out — twice, at that — and I'm sure the same energy will follow with the patent release.

For months, the New York fashion label quietly teased its patent shoppers, gifting them to select in-the-know individuals.

The patent leather Telfar shopper even had a star moment in the City Girls and Usher's "Good Love" video, as pointed out in July by TikTok detectives who suspected the new bag would be coming soon.

As you can see in the video, the music group sits in a claw machine surrounded by several Telfar purses, including the forthcoming red patent mini bag (another case solved by the TikTok sleuths!).

After glimmering puffers, sunny-side-up canvas, and even fluffy UGG versions, Telfar gives its iconic handbag the sleekest treatment yet, continuing its legacy of fashionable styles fit for, well, everyone.

I wonder if Beyoncé and Sasha Obama have plans on copping? Or perhaps, they were lucky individuals who received theirs already. Hmm.
