Telfar Clemens transformed Irving Plaza for NYFW and brought together elements of fashion, music, art and theater to present his Fall/Winter 2019 collection. In collaboration with playwright Jeremy O Harris, the performance-cum-fashion-show brought out a four-part monologue by Harris, choreographed dance routine by Xavier Cha and sets by rock band Ho99o9, blues artist Robert Randolph, musician/actor Na-Kel, vocalist Oyinda and rapper Butch Dawson.

Exploring the etymology of the word ”country” with its ties to American history as well as the music genre, the collection includes neutral, earth tones like brown, tan and navy materialized into blazers with removable sleeves, along with high-waisted trousers. Infusing classic materials like denim and leather, the lineup makes a statement through imprinted images of Black cowboys on jersey dress shirts, tees, scarves and hoodies, along with shirts and details referencing colonial wear.

In celebration of Black Future(s) Month led by Black Lives Matter, the collection includes a special collaborative tee, which will be available at BLM’s web shop. Telfar also partnered with Slam Jam, Budweiser and again with White Castle on upcoming visual displays and limited releases tied to the Country theme.
