Oprah has officially released her Favorite Things List including the popular Telfar “Bushwick Birkin” ranging from $150 to $257.
The Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020 list went live on Friday, prompting the medium sized bag in four stunning colors to sell out within the same day on Amazon. It’s actually the FIRST time it has been added on the site!
The handbag was first created in 2014 and quickly gained the attention of celebrities all over the world including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Selena Gomez, Solange Knowles Dua Lipa, and Bella Hadid. It became the “it” bag that caught the eye of the fashion world and everyday shoppers.
Brooklyn-based designer and owner of fashion label Telfar, Telfar Clemens created the luxurious Bushwick Birkin in medium and large sizes fit for stylish nights out or everyday errands with the space to hold a laptop and other essentials. Earlier this year, he won the lauded CFDA award of American Accessories Designer of the Year for his vegan leather bags.
Being included as one of Oprah’s 72 must-have gifts for the holiday season is a huge accomplishment for many companies as her top recommendations have been known to catapult each pick into households across America. Chosen as one of the only two celeb-owned picks, the takes its place alongside the hooded jumpsuit ($84.95) from Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie line on Oprah’s list.
Oprah gave her stamp of approval, stating: “Made with feels-like-the-real-thing vegan leather, it’s the perfect size for work or weekend (I take the cream one with me everywhere). And who wouldn’t love the shoulder straps and top handles?”
