How to get the Telfar Shopping Bag that is always sold out

For the most part, last year’s biggest shopping trends were pretty easy to predict. From tie-dye sweatsuits to the nap dress, we were looking for items that would keep us comfortable while we stayed home and adjusted to our new normal. So when the Telfar Shopping Bag became one of the most-wanted accessories of the year, it was somewhat surprising.

While other luxury brands struggled as the economy took a serious hit, Telfar, helmed by Liberian-American fashion designer, Telfar Clemens, seemed to have its best year yet. The global fashion shopping platform, Lyst, revealed in their Year in Fashion Report at the end of 2020 that searches for the brand saw a 270 percent increase week-on-week since August.

While Telfar makes a variety of products, from shoes to apparel, none are quite as popular as the cult-favorite Shopping Bag. It ranges in price from $150 to $257 and

10 Names and Trends to Watch Out for in 2021

While our fashion choices will, of course, not be the prevailing memory of the pandemic, as a fashion editor, I have found it fascinating to watch the market shifts and changes in shopping behaviours that have occurred over this period. The centres of gravity that usually dictate our wardrobes—the office, weddings, Friday-night drinks, dinners out—have been pulled out from underneath us, raising the question why do we wear what we wear? As I browsed my wardrobe with this question in mind, I realised that dresses were the one item that best encapsulated the joy of dressing that I have been missing during lockdown. I spotted my year 11 prom dress, a floaty wrap number that brought back memories of sun-drenched beaches and the first item of clothing I ever made myself: an LBD.

As we teeter on the edge of a new normal, I wanted to look forward to

SMCP Profit Declines Less Than Expected Thanks to Online Shopping

French fashion group SMCP, the owner of the Sandro and Maje labels, said on Wednesday its 2020 core profit fell less than feared, cushioned by a rise in online sales and cost-cutting.

Retailers were hit hard as governments forced shops to close during coronavirus-related lockdowns and SMCP’s 2020 sales fell by a quarter, only partially offset by recovery in China and accelerating digital sales trends.

“As expected, our full year results were strongly impacted by the pandemic which led to lockdown measures in most countries and a halt in tourism flows,” chief executive Daniel Lalonde said in a statement.

The company, which also owns mid-priced luxury brands Claudie Pierlot and De Fursac, said its annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) fell by almost 40 percent to €179.6 million ($212.70 million) compared to analysts’ average forecast of €128.62 million in a Refinitiv poll.

SMCP added that earnings showed
