Following his Paris debut for SS20, Telfar Celemens will present his eponymous unisex brand TELFAR at next year’s Pitti Uomo as its guest designer.
Founded in 2005, the NY-based label has gone from strength to strength in recent seasons, building upon a strong identity that merges streetwear with luxury and statement jewellery. Equally memorable are the brand’s catwalk outings, whose raucous energy channels the spirit of Queens, NY and the streets on which Clements grew up.
“We are honoured to be invited to show at Pitti Uomo,” says Clemens, “where the deep sense of history and continuity sets the scene perfectly for something entirely new”
Lapo Cianchi of Pitti Uomo added, “For fifteen years, he [Clemens] has been promoting with tenacity an idea of inclusive and accessible fashion and business, with a project in which there is an unexpected blending of aesthetics, art, genre identity and functionality. We are happy to offer him the opportunity to present himself to the Pitti Uomo community, and I am sure that the event in Florence will provide further meaning to a message that is already strong and vibrant”
The event will take place in Florence from January 7-10, 2020, exact date and location to be announced.
