Yes, it’s November already. Here in New York, the crisp fall winds have rolled in, and with them come the ubiquitous fall outfits. One, for instance, is a timeless (and arguably cheugy) combo: Chelsea boots, skinny jeans, turtleneck, and peacoat. But I, a fashion person by trade and an advocate for unapologetic self-expression by lifestyle, could frankly never … until now. This week, Telfar made its first foray into outerwear, including a leather peacoat, with the Canadian brand Moose Knuckles.
“This is designed specifically for everyone,” said Telfar Clemens in a press release announcing the collaboration. “If I don’t see it in the street every day it didn’t really happen.”
Combining Telfar’s New York City roots and Moose Knuckles’ outerwear expertise, the two brands created a 17-piece outerwear collection “that serves as an ode to New Yorkers’ penchant for getting noticed while minding their own business.” There’s a classic bomber set with a matching pair of fox-trimmed boot-cut ski pants, a puffer hoodie paired with matching puffer sweats, a puffer peacoat, and the crème de la crème, a lamb-leather quilted peacoat with an all-over Telfar monogram. Its product description reads, “Winter might not ever hit the same again,” which seems true because I probably will never look so glam leaving my house once for ten minutes to go to the corner deli.
“Working with one of the most forward-thinking designers in the industry today has been a dream come true,” said Dominique Lagleva, vice-president of global marketing at Moose Knuckles, in a statement.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Telfar drop without bags, and there’s a limited-edition puffer Telfar shopper in the medium size, as well large puffer shoppers with all-over puzzle-piece monogram. Prices range from $195 to $4,300, and the pieces are available to shop now on both the Moose Knuckles and Telfar sites.
