Upcoming NYC label Telfar, the brainchild of Queens-based Telfar Clemens, took to a rainswept runway to unveil its SS19 collection as part of the Big Apple's fashion week. Like many designers working in the shadow of a Trump presidency, Clemens tore up all-American classics and made them his own.

Telfar turned to the the good-old Stars-and-Stripes (what else?) as a foundation for its graphics, and notched up the ’Murican vibes by putting a Budweiser collab on the runway (kudos to the beer brand for allowing Clemens to tear up its logo for the pieces in #14 and #15).

Denim, another American classic, was patchworked together horizontally, while v-neck knits winked at the prep revival that's simmering in NY these days. Telfar's shopping-style leather bags, which are modeled on the Christmas bags used by Macy's during the Holiday season (spotted in #4), appeared with Bud-branded scarves wrapped around them.
