Telfar Just Restocked AOC's Coveted Red Bag
It looks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is also a fan of Telfar's covetable shopping tote, which has been dubbed "the Bushwick Birkin." Telfar Clemens is the brains behind the nongendered brand, which was created in 2004. AOC carried the brand's highly sought after bag, which was introduced in 2014. The oxblood shopping tote prominently features the brand's sleek logo embossed on the side. Sadly, when Alexandria first debuted the $257 bag, it was sold out on Telfar's website, but the brand announced via Instagram that it's restocking the oxblood and yellow color ways in all three sizes today, including the exact bag the congresswoman carried.
AOC was seen carrying her bag while leaving the Capitol building in Washington DC after voting on a bill on the US Postal Service operations. She even went on to write about the brand on her Instagram, saying, "Fun fact: Telfar is now known as a globally celebrated designer, but did you know this Black, LGBTQ+ designer + founder got their start in LEFRAK CITY, QUEENS. That's right! Telfar Clemons is a HOMETOWN HERO from our district! Another NY-14 native using their talents to challenge us to question convention and imagine a different world. Our community is so proud!"
