Country club in the front, strip club in the back: the extremes of high and low mass market American sportswear, reconfigured into the strongest streetwear we've seen in New York thus far. There's nothing like feeling tears well because the room is full of friends and fans: Telfar Clemens' pals were snapping selfies in the front row and shouting "HASHTAG TELFIE".
Martha Stewart, living:
The pastels in the collection were taken directly from paint chip samples of Martha Stewart's home collection, which were pulled from Home Depot. The pink shade is called Sweet Baby Girl and the blue is Baby Boy Blue. Clemens described the collection as "fringe prep." "I was really inspired by KMart and what is used frequently in the American mass market," he said. "Those polo shirts and some of the cargos, just putting a twist on it."
The runway music – or should we say runway accompaniment – was a compilation of Lana Del Rey's “Summertime Sadness”, Taylor Swift's “Trouble” and Katy Perry's “Dark Horse”, all played on an all-white piano.
