You can decide how much to pay for new Telfar collections

Since its founding in 2005, New York-based fashion brand Telfar has disrupted the fashion industry with its accessible approach to luxury.

It works like this: Each item in the range (consisting only of clothing, so don’t expect to secure a new pill bag or hyped purse at a discount) is sold at a wholesale price. This initial price is then incrementally increased until it reaches RRP, the retail price. catch? If an item sells out before the suggested retail price is reached, the brand permanently locks the price of the item at the sold-out lower price.

So if a t-shirt has a wholesale price of £20 and sells out before it reaches £30, it will have a shelf life of £30 remaining, even though the regular retail price is £70. This reverse supply and demand model means that the fastest selling and the most in-demand items by proxy are the most accessible. Or, as the brand puts it, “The more you want, the lower the price.” Disruptive strategies rewrite the typical brand business model, where the most in-demand items usually raise prices.

In a press release, the brand explained the motivation behind the new pricing system. Cool people ≠ wealthy people – hence cool clothes ≠ expensive clothes.”

in an exclusive interview with first companyfounder Clemens once again reinforced his mantra of making products accessible and affordable to anyone who needed them when describing the new live pricing model. Brands make price a barrier to entry, and I didn’t want that for my brand,” he said.

Twitter has greatly applauded the decision, with one user commenting: People love to complain all the time, especially about fashion and the markup on their bags. Another said, “It’s a good way to get more traffic and also a good way for customers to get deals.”
