We stan a little “outfit of the day” photo dump from Beyonce and today just happened to be one of those days with a slight twist
The hive is buzzing though, and it’s not because of her floral pants. Beyonce was spotted walking in Brooklyn rocking a white Telfar Bag to match her ensemble.
You heard right, your bestie was rocking a Telfie!
According to Complex, this is a must-have accessory from the black-owned brand Telfar Clemens.
Bey’s bag was the medium-sized white version that retails for $202; but just like every other model, this particular piece has been sold out for a while.
The design, aka the “Bushwick Birkin,” has become one of the most in-demand bags over the last couple of years and is known to sell out within minutes of each drop.
Designer Clemens even launched the Telfar Bag Security Program in an effort to give customers better access to the highly coveted totes, which have been praised for their simple yet luxe aesthetic and relatively affordable price points.
The typical small version retails for $150 and the large goes for $257, however, some resellers have listed the sold-out bags for twice as much.
In July 2020, Telfar shut down its website due to a high volume of traffic driven by the Shopping Bag restock. Some initially speculated that bots were to blame for the crash, but Clemens told Complex the effect of bots was “exaggerated.”
“The demand has been growing exponentially since January. We’ve been around since 2004 and this bag has been around for five years,” Clemens said.
“It’s actually quite a deep question to ask why it’s popping off right now.
I think people who know don’t need an explanation. If we are talking about this particular drop, it’s the first time we teased [a restock].
All we said was ‘set your alarms’ … If there were no bots roughly the same thing would have happened.
A vast majority of bots are buying for individual customers from what we see. I think it’s well known what we are about and what our bag is about.”
Twitter is predicting the price of the bag to go up now that Bey was seen wearing it, but the brand has confirmed on Instagram that the price will remain the same.
They also think the bag will be even more scarce now.
Beyonce? With a Telfar? Oh it’s over. Yall will never get one. https://t.co/bySuwdpej8
