Consumers will decide the price of Telfar’s newest collection

by The Grio

An enduring truth about the brand Telfar is that the brand continues to shake up the game, regularly selling out new drops in record time, remaining in demand across all tax brackets, and outselling legacy brands on resale sites. Now, with a new unisex apparel line making its debut next week, Telfar is not only poised to once again shake up the industry, but founder Telfar Clemens is betting on it. 

On Monday, March 27, at 12 p.m. ET, when Telfar’s apparel line drops online, a live dynamic pricing experiment will be in play.

“The more we thought about it, the more it became clear that the pricing model in fashion doesn’t make any sense,” said Radboy.
