Telfar has, once again, divided social networks.
During its recent show at New York Fashion Week, the asexual fashion brand unveiled the Round Circle Bag, its most expensive handbag to date. The all-black accessory is shaped like Telfar’s T-inside-aC logo, a structural piece measuring 11-inches high and 11-inches wide that features a zipper closure, detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, top handles as well as pull tabs. hidden compartments. And, just like Telfar’s coveted Shopping Bag, the latest addition is made from faux leather with a twill lining. It’s pretty much everything you’d expect from the Telfar Clemens imprint. Well, almost everything.
On Wednesday, the brand released a Telfar TV promo for the Round Circle Bag and confirmed that it will cost $567, about $300 more than the most expensive shopping bag.
“What about the world when the rent is more important than the new Telfar bag?” a voice is heard saying in the video. “Come on, get on this fucking program. I know you don’t stumble.
Although $567 is considered “affordable” in the luxury market, the price is quite high compared to previous Telfar offerings. The brand has established itself as a purveyor of “accessible luxury,” as its most popular handbags sell for as low as $150. While some customers scoffed at the price of the Round Circle Bag, which has since sold out online, others have defended the price as nothing more than a smart business move.
