Telfar often plays with neutral tones, workwear, staple garments and various retro influences, and this approach is apparent and clear for SS20. The New York designer and the brand’s partner, Babak Radboy, present everything from 1970s-influenced sportswear to pieces indebted with cowboy design cues, as well a host of military-themed garments fitted with tactical elements.
Standout looks from the PFW SS20 runway show include a tactical vest and cargo pant two-piece, which features Telfar’s logo hardware, a multitude of pockets and various drawstrings, as well as the biker-esque leather jacket paired with ripped and deconstructed denim jeans.
Elsewhere, Telfar presents relaxed tailoring in the form of a pink two-piece suit, shorts paired with chaps, and a smattering of knitted garments ranging from tank tops to dresses and oversized jumpers. Take a look at Telfar’s genderless and extensive SS20 collection in the gallery above.

A Semana de Moda de Paris começou hoje com o super aguardado desfile da #telfar do designer americano Clemens Telfar. Como backdrop para as roupas a marca exibiu o curta “The World Isn’t Everything” estrelado por amigos da marca como o ator Ashton Sanders, os músicos Kelsey Lu e Steve Lacy entre outros e escrito por @jeremyoharris . A coleção e o filme tem como tema central a imigração. Ele começa em Nova York, onde a marca nasceu e vinha desfila, cruza o oceano Atlântico e chega à Paris com um statement sobre representatividade negra. Dá play nos vídeos para ver um pouco do que foi a apresentação e o final apoteótico com Clemens correndo por fora. @augustomariotti . #pfw #ss20 #parisfashionweek #telfar #ashtonsanders #kelseylu #jeremyoharris #stevelacy

A lot went into Telfar’s @telfarglobal spring 2020 show. First previewed in a film during @nyfw earlier this month, the collection which opened @parisfashionweek last night consisted of functional items with a touch of boldness and ease that perhaps only the brand can pull off. The show began with military green and cargos, with the extended version of the film ‘The World Isn’t Everything’ which was first shown at @nyfw as the backdrop. Thigh hole jeans where elevated to thigh hole track pants this season. Hybrid denim spliced with cargos and track pants and cargo pants made to look saggy as it to reveal non existent “boxers”. Shorts progressed to fishnet stockings, actually for a every hole a fishnet. @budweiser @budweiserza slogans appeared on shirts and pants while a collaboration with @converse @converse.za resulted in reworked sneakers and clothing items with the Converse star logo as a graphic print.
