Telfar Launches Genderless Liberia Sportwear Collection
Designer Telfar Clemens has launched his first sportswear range, the Liberia Collection, after designing the official uniform for the Liberian team competing at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The designer was visiting his home in Liberia when he connected with the country’s Olympic team and took inspiration from the streets around him to create the collection’s first sketches, which has turned into roughly 70 genderless pieces. The collection includes gown-length jerseys, deconstructed tracksuits, sarong bottoms as well as spliced tops designed in navy, red, sand and white.
The collection was unveiled at a private ceremony held outside of the official Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony. Telfar served as the official sponsor for the Liberian team — the first since the team’s last sponsorship deal in 2000.
Telfar’s Liberia Collection is available on the brand’s website, with prices ranging from $60 to $290.
