Last week, Telfar Clemens took home the acclaimed title of CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award joining the likes of Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Jonathan Simkhai, and Altuzarra. But what does this win mean to the fashion community and the world as a whole?
Short answer: a lot.
Telfar is known for creating unisex clothing long before any designers began to think about the possibility. Simply, Clemens was designing the clothes that he and his friends wanted to wear. Going further, he often has a diverse runway that features models of ambiguous, non-defined gender or sex who make his garments the star of the show. But Telfar isn’t just challenging the status quo on the runway; he’s working to redefine the “normal” individual style. Recently, he partnered with White Castle to redesign their employee uniform in a uniquely unisex silhouette. These uniforms debuted during September 2017 in 400 stores nationwide and signaled the beginning of Telfar’s reign.
In true jewelry girl fashion, we couldn’t help but notice the simple gold jewelry that often adorned the models for the Telfar Spring 2018 RTW. So to celebrate Telfar and all that he’s done for the community, we put together a collection of minimalist gold jewelry perfect for completing any gender neutral outfit.
